Thailand’s Sala Hospitality Group has partnered boat rental company True Leasing to create private cruise packages that pair stay and dining experiences with a sightseeing trip along the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.
The cruise aboard a classic mahogany Hacker-Craft boat will sail past the city’s landmarks such as the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Escorted by a boat captain, all boats offer seating for up to five guests – ideal for couples, families and groups of friends.
Guests can choose from two curated packages that combine cruises and a five-course menu crafted by the chefs at the sala rattanakosin Bangkok’s Eatery and Bar, with one also including overnight stays at the hotel.
Lunch or dinner for two, along with a private 30-minute Chao Phraya classic boat cruise is priced at 9,100++ baht/US$290++ (down from the standard rate of 12,900++ baht). Alternatively, guests can combine their meal and a 30-minute cruise with an overnight stay in a wat arun river view suite, including breakfast for two the following morning for 16,999++ baht (reduced from the standard rate of 24,400++ baht).
