Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok Completes River Wing Renovation

Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok will re-open its River Wing on 11 November 2019, concluding the most extensive restoration in the hotel’s 143-year history.

In keeping with the successful restoration of the Authors’ and Garden Wings in 2016, the River Wing renovation has been designed to confirm this historic hotel’s position as one of the best in the world. Newly designed guestrooms and suites and a variety of updated facilities will enhance the hotel’s unique resort style while maintaining its classic, Thai-influenced elegance.

The restored River Wing’s accommodation comprises an increased number of suites along with enlarged guestrooms with enhanced views of the Chao Phraya River.

Lord Jim’s, The Verandah and Riverside Terrace restaurants along with the hotel’s Lobby have been stylishly renewed, with many original features restored and re-instated. In addition, the hotel has a new Japanese Kaiseki-style restaurant, Kinu by Takagi, the first restaurant in Thailand by Michelin-celebrated Chef Takagi Kazuo of Kyoto Cuisine Takagi in Japan. The property’s two iconic swimming pools have also been re-landscaped to provide additional relaxation areas and cabanas.

In celebration, the hotel has created the “Be the First to Stay” accommodation package, priced from THB 25,350++ per night, which includes:

  • Luxurious accommodation
  • Personal butler service
  • Daily buffet breakfast for two people at The Verandah
  • Daily hotel restaurant and spa credit of THB 2,000 for guestroom or THB 4,000 for suite reservations
