Famed for using high-quality ingredients at all of its restaurants, Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok invites guests to discover the secrets of tree tea oil, as the hotel presents PatPat’s tree tea oil, Camelia oleifera seed oil, one of the most extensively researched essential oils.
Tea Seed Oil is almost 90 per cent unsaturated fat, which is unique among oils. It is; therefore, a heart-healthy oil which has been identified to lower LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels and harmful triglycerides from the body.
The hotel is incorporating tea seed oil into its menus at Salathip, Shang Palace, NEXT2 Café and Volti ristorante & bar with prices ranging from Bt280++ to Bt1,000++ per dish.
Guests can indulge in tea seed oil benefits from the Cantonese Dim Sum Combination with Tea Seed Oil and Stir-Fried Prawns with X.O.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej granted an initiative for the establishment of the Chaipattana Foundation to provide prompt and necessary responses to problems affecting the Thai citizen’s tranquility and well-being through various development projects. Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the foundation’s executive chairperson, bestowed the name “PatPat” as a label of products that are produced from various sustainable projects of the foundation. This will eventually lead to the country stability, which is the victory of development.
The partnership with “PatPat” further exemplifies Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok’s commitment in promoting culture and social sustainable development with the use of local produce and products from the Royal Project all over the country, while also creating authentic experiences for guests.
