In Thai, “Kandhavas Palace” spells “scented residence”. And indeed, our Princess Valaya Alongkorn was passionate about indigenous flora and plantations. What could be more appropriate than a 30-minute demonstration of how to make the perfect Siamese Potpourri or fold a royal lotus? It’s all part of our Floral Journey curated by our concierge.
Floral Journeys, Option A: Siamese Potpourri
The Siamese Potpourri, used to scent royal residences, dates back to the 16thcentury Kingdom of Ayutthaya. We use its authentic formula, preserved in a poem composed by a princess, to reprise the historic art and enchanting aura. Discover how it also reflects the then-Kingdom of Siam’s contacts around the region through the use of Javanese “Bu-nga Rampai”, bu-nga meaning “floral” and “rampai” meaning miscellaneous in classic Javanese.
After whichever activity you choose, you may also opt to complete your journey by enjoying a specially created royal afternoon tea.
A Voyage to Our Royal Roots
Join our Concierge team on a 40-minute “Explore our Royal Roots” tour of the hotel that reveals its treasured heritage. You’ll discover how the location previously hosted a former royal residence, Kandhavas Palace, how that fact has shaped the hotel’s design, and how the passions of the then-resident, Princess Valaya Alongkorn, inspire so many enchanting features.
Floral Journeys, Option B: The Royal Art of Folding Lotuses
In Thailand, the Royal Lotus is a symbol of purity worthy to pay homage to a Buddha Image and make offerings to Buddhist monks in various religious ceremonies. As for the royal art of folding lotus flowers, it is traced back to the Kingdom of Sukhothai in the 13th century when royalty began using lotuses in religious festivals, after which the practice spread throughout the land.
After whichever activity you choose, you may also opt to complete your journey by enjoying a specially created royal afternoon tea.
Our Luxury Collection Concierge invites you to develop a taste for Muay Thai. Thailand’s vibrant national sport, combines an unforgettable experience of what it means to be Thai with one of the best work-outs around.

As one of the world leaders in medical tourism, Bangkok offers an attractive and reassuring blend of affordability and convenience as well as the highest standards of medical care. Forget long waiting lists and unaffordable procedures, medical visitors to Bangkok often pay less than half the price of the same procedure in their home country, all the while enjoying the same or often higher level of care.
What Is Medical Tourism?
Medical tourism is traveling to another country for a medical procedure, whether it is minor or major, a necessary health procedure or a beautifying cosmetic procedure. Medical tourism has seen a steady growth throughout the world as health care prices in many countries continue to rise or a shortage of medical professionals or suitable facilities creates long waiting lists. Medical tourism affords patients the chance to combine a holiday with a procedure or simply recuperate in a relaxed location with a higher level of care.
Why Bangkok for Medical Tourism?
Recent research has shown that factors such as more affordable pricing for both hotel accommodation and treatments as well as a world-class level of patient care has put Bangkok as a global leader in medical tourism. In 2010 alone, an estimated half a million patients traveled to Thailand for medical treatment.

Bangkok’s Bumrungrad Hospital was one of the first hospitals in Thailand and Asia to be recognized for its exceptional standards of patient care and treatments by the JCI.

Business Etiquette in Thailand
Researchers estimate that in less than five seconds of someone meeting you they will have formed their first impression, that’s less time than it took to read this sentence. When it comes to business, first impressions can make or break a deal. If you’re new to doing business in Thailand then you’ll need to know how to make those five seconds count. From cultural no-no’s to business winning must-do’s, here’s our guide on making the best first impression.
Dress for Success
Analyze your attire; does what you’re wearing show you respect your business and clients? Does your appearance give the impression of success and confidence? To Thai people appearance is of great import, with business dress code being generally conservative.
Five general-rule simple steps to giving a positive and confident greeting; 1) look the person you are greeting in the eye, 2) give a firm handshake, 3) greet them by name, 4) clearly and slowly say your own name, and 5) smile. Or if you want to give a traditional Thai greeting why not try a ‘wai’. To wai, the hands are raised as if in prayer and the head is bowed.
One of the first things a person will notice when meeting you is your body language. If your body stance is slouched, you will send the message that you are not interested in the other person, while on the flip-side, if you stand straight and natural, with your shoulders back, arms at your side and head up, this will indicate your interest and enthusiasm.
Speak clearly, professionally and at an appropriate sound level and pace. Courtesy is something extremely important to Thai people, so make sure to be polite and respectful when addressing your audience; and try smiling warmly as you speak.
Where you choose to hold your business meeting plays a big part in making a good impression. Choose somewhere professional yet comfortable that will suit your business meeting requirements. The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok is a top choice for meetings and events, with 28 sophisticated meeting spaces and a selection of meeting packages and catering options to suit you.
In Thai Buddhism, the head is regarded as sacred, so be careful if you’re thinking of passing items over someone's head as this can cause great offense. Also, the feet are considered dirty so you should avoid using your feet to point to things. It is also thought to be offensive to pass anything with your left hand so always use your right hand to pass things and make sure to never point with one finger.
While Thai business etiquette might take a little getting used to, don’t panic. If you’re not sure, just ask. You’ll find Thai people warm and welcoming and very appreciative of any efforts to be culturally-considerate. Happy doing business!
