The St. Regis Bangkok has created a new signature offer pairing a hidden gems exploration of Bangkok with insider access to cultural attractions, plus an evening of chef-cultivated Thai dining in the newly enhanced Owner’s Penthouse.
In addition to activities and dining, the package includes accommodations in the two-story, three-bedroom Penthouse located on the highest floor of The St. Regis Bangkok, 44 stories above street level. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the 8,600-square-foot residence reveal panoramic views and newly updated Asian décor and art sourced from around the globe, combined with contemporary touches, fill the living space.
Personally guided by a local expert, the package includes a journey exploring the hidden gems of Bangkok. The day starts with a tour of Pak Khlong Tala, the largest flower market in Bangkok. Following an exploration of the outstanding 16th century Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), a lunch is enjoyed at the Err restaurant. The menu offers urban rustic Thai cuisine deeply rooted in Thai culture, including street food and single plate dishes.
A traditional tuk tuk brings guests to the afternoon highlight of exclusive insider access to the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles featuring the “Fit for a Queen” exhibition, including more than 30 of Her Majesty’s dresses and accessories that have never before been on display. A meeting with the Museum’s curator gives deeper insight into the exhibit, which focuses on the 22-year relationship between Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and French couturier Pierre Balmain.
Private Dining Experience
An additional experience included in the package is an exclusive Thai-inspired dinner created by Executive Chef of The St. Regis Bangkok, Chris Miller. Set family style in the dining area of the Penthouse, guests are served a four-course meal that highlights traditional and local Thai ingredients, including Grilled Wagyu Rib Eye with Fresh Pomelo and Peanut; Spicy Rich Red Curry with Roasted Crisp Duck and Caramelized Pineapple; Chilled Mango Jelly and Coconut Infused Parfait.
The Penthouse has an array of memorabilia and antiques. Presenting an expression of east meets west, four costumes originally worn by Oscar-winning actor Yul Brynner in the Broadway musical “The King And I” adorn the walls. This memorabilia is displayed in the Penthouse as a nod to the actor’s career. Another rare item is an antique large-format camera invented and used by Eberhard Schneider, an early inventor of the motion picture camera; this piece is in the living quarters of the Penthouse.
Additional art pieces include a hand-formed cinnamon bowl made of thousands of cinnamon sticks by a Japanese artist, which illustrates traditional Asian craft techniques, as well as a sterling silver hippopotamus created in a tribute to the animal kingdom.
The three-bedroom Penthouse has a balcony with a private, 23-foot infinity pool overlooking the city skyline. The private dining room with a view of Bangkok’s famous Sukhumvit stretch is ideal for dinner parties accommodating up to 16 guests and is adjacent to a modern kitchen stocked with produce and choice ingredients from the residence market list.
A wine room offers a selection of old and new world vintages specially chosen by the house sommelier from the hotel’s cellar. A private exercise room offers far-stretching city views, while a private spa therapy area offers Elemis Spa treatments.
Bespoke 24-hour St. Regis Butler service includes two personal butlers ready to cater to a guest’s every need. From packing and unpacking services to serving in-residence breakfast or making arrangements for a fully catered dinner party, no request is too big or too small.
Pricing for the Owner’s Penthouse package begins at $9,500 per night.
