The Peninsula Bangkok’s unique architecture has an extremely wonderful benefit to every single one of its guests – the building, shaped like a W, allows every single room to have a view of the river. Small characteristics such as this brand this hotel as one that has its guests experience top of mind in every moment of the day. From décor to exclusive rooms to cooking classes, little things add up to make a stay at The Peninsula Bangkok memorable.
The hotel features a very niche concept called Peninsula Academy. Aimed at giving guests access and exposure to local lifestyle experiences, this bundle of programs includes and is not limited to a conservation themed eco-adventure, a cultural and historical tour, an elephant and vineyard visit, a Muay Thai class, and locally sourced cooking class. The activities are so varied and all encompassing that one need not look far for exciting and authentic Thai experiences.
Caring for the health of visitors is well within The Peninsula Bangkok’s holistic service. Its renowned spa, The Peninsula Spa, is set in a three-storied colonial Thai building and offers coveted treatments that are sure to rejuvenate you. Consultation for tailor fit spa programs is also possible. Last but not least, health conscious guests can dine out of the River Cafe & Terrace’s Naturally Peninsula menu. Using sustainable produce often grown in the hotel’s own Naturally Peninsula Garden, chefs offer light and healthy dishes without ever sacrificing taste.
