Bangkok-based real estate developer, Country Group Development, will be opening Capella Bangkok, in the Thai capital in 2018.
The city’s first Capella hotel will comprise 101 guest suites and river villas, a bar, two restaurants, and a riverfront ballroom complete with function rooms.
Capella Bangkok will be part of a luxury residential and hotel development known as The Chao Phraya Estate, and is one of the two international hospitality anchors within the development. Occupying 5.7 hectares on the east bank of the River of Kings, The Chao Phraya Estate is Country Group Development’s largest project to date, valued at 32 billion baht (US$918 million).
Nicholas M Clayton, CEO of Capella Hotel Group Asia, said: “We are delighted to announce Capella Bangkok as one of three new properties to be launched in Asia within the next 15 months. Capella Shanghai will open in late spring 2017, Capella Ubud follows in the autumn and Capella Bangkok will welcome guests in summer 2018.”
