Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is now open.

Designed by Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston, the 299-key all-new riverside sanctuary features art-filled lounges, open-air terraces and myriad water features.

“The much-anticipated return of Four Seasons to Thailand’s capital is nothing short of spectacular,” says Christian Clerc, Four Seasons’ president of Global Operations. “Guests will be in awe of the exquisite design, the world-class restaurant and bar options, and a state-of-the-art wellness centre. As always, the unparalleled, intuitive service from Four Seasons people will be at the center of it all. Thanks to our visionary owner-partners at Country Holdings Group Public Company Limited, this magnificent hotel combines everything that one has come to expect of Four Seasons in Thailand and around the world.”

Located along 650-feet of open riverfront in the heart of the city’s Creative District, the fourth location in the Four Seasons Thailand Collection is an enclave of tiered buildings, connected at ground level by a series of indoor and outdoor spaces, quiet courtyards and lively restaurants. In addition to the hotel, destination restaurants and lounges, event spaces and wellness centre, the complex also includes 366 Four Seasons Private Residences opening this year.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok accommodations

The property’s rooms and suites have a warm, residential character that balances high tech function and the company’s signature comfort with Thai touches. Each room has high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows with river or garden views, and spa-like bathrooms.

Guestrooms blend modern amenities with Thai design details. 

The property’s Terrace Suites have landscaped and furnished terraces large enough to host a private dinner party. The 4,800-square-foot Presidential Suite features two-storey windows framing 10th-floor views of the river, a large open living area with bar and catering kitchen, up to three bedrooms and an oversized terrace with a private plunge pool.

Destination dining, world-class mixology

A “dream team” of experts in cuisines, room design and hospitality innovation has created the hotel’s food and beverage program. The team is helmed by executive chef Andrea Accordi, who was previously at the Four Seasons Hong Kong, which is home to one two-Michelin-star and two three-Michelin-star restaurants (8 Michelin stars). Assisting Accordi at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok are French executive pastry chef Bruce Trouyet, Philip Bischoff presiding over the beverage program, and specialist culinarians in each restaurant.

Meeting at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok

The property has more than 41,000 square feet of meeting and event space, all designed by Gathy. The divisible rooms include adjacent outdoor terraces and gardens with panoramic river views.

Its signature space is the 8,600-square-foot Four Seasons Grand Ballroom. It features a private entrance, pre-function foyer, soaring ceilings and a dedicated outside Ballroom Terrace. The ballroom can also be divided in two.

Another notable space is the residential-style Conservatory, a smaller, 4,575-square-foot ballroom plus a garden terrace. The Conservatory Kitchen hosts up to 200 guests for events or meeting breaks. Four additional studios complete the suite of meeting rooms.

Wellness spa coming soon

When it opens, the Urban Wellness Centre at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok will encompass 26,900 square feet over two floors.

“Every aspect of the spa places equal emphasis on the ideas of Mind (spirituality), Body (spa), and Work (fitness),” says Sandie Johannessen, senior director of Spa. “With the Palm Courtyard at its centre, it’s a true oasis of wellbeing in the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities, where each guest will find peace, relaxation, renewal and even a bit of indulgence with the skilled guidance of our caring therapists and wellness experts.”

Highlights include a spa suite with its own private bath and indoor garden; eight additional treatment rooms; retail shop; relaxation lounges; in-house hair salon, barbershop and nail salon; 30-metre lap pool; a naturally lit, state-of-the-art gym; and a dedicated mind and body studio with regular open and private classes.
