Traditional afternoon tea served with old world charm

The Authors’ Lounge is located on the ground floor of the original Oriental Hotel and exudes old world charm reminiscent of the early 1900s. Turn-of-the-century style wicker furniture and hand-painted fabrics provide the perfect accompaniment to framed photographs of many of the famous writers who have stayed at the hotel since the late nineteenth century. Renowned for its traditional afternoon tea of delicate finger sandwiches, pastries, freshly-baked scones and home-made jams, The Authors’ Lounge is a truly unique setting and one of the most photographed locations in Bangkok, if not Thailand. Those looking for a small, intimate gathering may do so in one of the four private adjoining lounges.

The Authors’ Lounge adheres to a smart dress code for all guests, including children. Ladies are kindly asked to wear elegant attire and proper footwear, while gentlemen are requested to wear long trousers and closed shoes.

Khao Chae Afternoon Tea

Traditionally, Khao Chae is the most popular Thai delight to cool down from the summer heat.  This year Executive Pastry Chef Pablo Gicquel collaborates with Chef Pom Phatchara from our Terrace Rim Naam restaurant to present you our seasonal Khao Chae Afternoon Tea.  Available from now until 31 May 2021.
