Newly updated Asian décor and art sourced from around the globe, combined with contemporary touches, create a living space that exudes a timeless allure for discerning travelers.
A Transcending Journey Exploring the Gems of Bangkok…
Personally guided by a local expert, the package includes a journey exploring the hidden gems of Bangkok. The day starts with a colorful tour of Pak Khlong Tala, the largest flower market in Bangkok. Following an exploration of the outstanding 16th century Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), a superb lunch is enjoyed at the renowned Err restaurant, which was selected as Bib Gourmand by Michelin Guide 2018 and Chef Duangporn Songvisava (“Chef Bo”) was recently named the best female chef in Asia by Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. The menu features urban rustic Thai cuisine deeply rooted in Thai culture, including street food and single plate dishes. A traditional tuk tuk brings guests to the afternoon highlight of exclusive insider access to the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles featuring the “Fit for a Queen” exhibition, including more than 30 of Her Majesty’s dresses and accessories that have never before been on display. A meeting with the Museum’s curator gives deeper insight into the exhibit, which focuses on the 22-year relationship between Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and French couturier Pierre Balmain.
Savor Local Cuisine with a Curated Private Dining Experience…
An additional experience featured in the package is an exclusive Thai-inspired dinner created by Executive Chef of The St. Regis Bangkok, Chris Miller. Set family style in the luxurious dining area of the Penthouse, guests are served a four-course meal that highlights traditional and local Thai ingredients, including Grilled Wagyu Rib Eye with Fresh Pomelo and Peanut; Spicy Rich Red Curry with Roasted Crisp Duck and Caramelized Pineapple; Chilled Mango Kelly and Coconut Infused Parfait. Award-winning Executive Chef Chris Miller is acutely attuned to the rich and vibrant cuisine of Thailand, designed a meal that reflects the award-winning Pan-Asian culinary style he developed at five-star hotels and resorts in Thailand, Indonesia and across the world.
Penthouse Living Amongst an Array of Hollywood Memorabilia and Fine Art…
Celebrating art and a passion for rare finds, the Penthouse features an outstanding array of memorabilia and fine antiques. Presenting a subtle expression of east meets west and creating a sense of stateliness, four vibrant costumes originally worn by Oscar-winning actor Yul Brynner in the famed Broadway musical “The King And I” adorn the walls. This spectacular memorabilia is beautifully displayed in the Penthouse as a nod to the actor’s illustrious career. Another rare item that makes the décor truly distinct is an antique large-format camera invented and used by the legendary Eberhard Schneider. Mr. Schneider was an early inventor of the motion picture camera, and you will see this in the living quarters of the Penthouse. Additional art pieces enhancing the refined and upscale décor are spread throughout the Penthouse. Two examples are a hand-formed cinnamon bowl made of thousands of cinnamon sticks by a Japanese artist, which illustrates traditional Asian craft techniques, as well as a stunning sterling silver hippopotamus created in a tribute to the animal kingdom.
This penthouse is amazing… the three-bedroom “home away from home” features a balcony with a private infinity pool overlooking the magnificent city skyline. The private dining room with a view of Bangkok’s famous Sukhumvit stretch is perfect for dinner parties accommodating up to 16 guests and is adjacent to a fully equipped modern kitchen, stocked with fresh produce and choice ingredients from the residence market list. A cozy, beautifully styled wine room offers a fine selection of old and new world vintages specially chosen by the house sommelier from the hotel’s cellar. A private exercise room offers far-stretching city views, while a private spa therapy area offers pampering Elemis Spa treatments.
