CAPELLA BANGKOK CELEBRATES THE TIMELESS TRADITIONS OF ASIAN TEA CULTURE ON THE BANKS OF THE CHAO PHRAYA RIVER
THE TEA LOUNGE TRANSPORTS GUESTS ON AN EXQUISITE EPICUREAN JOURNEY, WITH PREMIUM BEVERAGES AND HANDCRAFTED DELICACIES FROM SYLVAIN CONSTANS, THE HOTEL’S AWARD-WINNING EXECUTIVE PASTRY CHEF
Capella Bangkok, the new boutique retreat on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, has unveiled its enchanting waterfront Tea Lounge, which celebrates the timeless elegance of Asian tea culture and the finest French pâtisserie in a refined riverside setting.
Nestled amidst lush gardens and calming lily ponds, the Tea Lounge is a serene setting for daytime refreshments and high teas. In-house guests and local residents can embark on their own tea journey, with a choice of premium black, white, green, and oolong varieties, along with fresh herbal and floral infusions, which can be savoured whilst soaking up the ambience of the historical river.
Capella Bangkok understands that tea is more than just a beverage; it is a social and cultural ritual. As rich and complex as wine, its flavour and fragrance depends on factors such as climate, topography and geology, creating dazzlingly diverse blends. It has also given rise to many captivating customs and ceremonies that date back centuries. Celebrating this heritage, our Connoisseur’s Teas include rare, handpicked leaves from the cool hills of southern China and northern Thailand, which can be customised with a choice of tropical and botanical elements. For a truly indulgent experience, the Tea Lounge also presents Capella Bangkok Signature Diamant Champagne, bottled exclusively for the hotel by the Vranken Pommery house.
For a magical afternoon with your most treasured friend or family member, Capella Bangkok’s award-winning Executive Pastry Chef, Sylvain Constans, has created a Signature High Tea Experience. This journey starts with a Tea & Herb Trolley to refresh the palate, then continues with sublime Savouries such as the Foie Gras Pearl and Uni Royale. Handcrafted Scones are next served with pomelo and spices jam, lemon – ginger marmalade and clotted cream. Guests will then be able to treat their sweet tooth with a Dessert Trolley of dainty delicacies, such as tarts, madeleines, macarons and cakes. Creative cocktails or mocktails will also be served at the table, including the “Champagne Piscine” to add sparkle to the afternoon.
A world-class pâtissier, Chef Sylvain has previously worked at some of the world’s most prestigious establishments, including The Dorchester in London, Dior des Lices in Saint-Tropez, and Beige Alain Ducasse Tokyo, a collaboration with Chanel. With limited spaces available (only 20 seats per day), his Signature High Tea Experience is expected to become one of Thailand’s most exclusive epicurean occasions.
The Capella Signature High Tea Experience is priced at THB 1,500++ per person, while the Capella Signature High Tea & Champagne is available for THB 2,500++ per person. The Tea Lounge at Capella Bangkok is open daily from 2pm until 6pm.
