Floral Journeys

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.

Muay Thai

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.

Steeped in local culture, this mesmerizing martial art was developed centuries ago as a form of close-combat referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”. The hands become the sword and dagger; the shins and forearms act as armor against blows; the elbow fells opponents like a heavy hammer; the legs and knees are the axe and staff.

Hotel History

Nestled on a leafy boulevard, in a sought-after area of Bangkok, The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok has a rich history and a royal connection. Built on the site of Kandhavas, the Palace of Princess Valaya Alongkorn, the hotel has been lovingly and extensively designed to celebrate its royal heritage.

The story of Princess Valaya Alongkorn, begins with her father, Chulalongkorn Rama V - the “Great Beloved King”. His reign was pivotal to the shaping of Siam and later Thailand and his educational interests undoubtedly influenced the young Princess.

While much is recorded about the Chakri Dynasty, Princess Valaya Alongkorn was truly special. Known for her love of books, Princess Valaya as a young girl would disappear for hours lost in literature. What started as a pastime, became a passion that she shared. Princess Valaya was pivotal in establishing one of the first all-girl schools in Thailand, even donating the land to establish a university specializing in training Thai women to become teachers and educators.

Princess Valaya’s creativity extended far beyond her skilled chess-playing and appreciation of literature. At the coronation ceremony of Queen Rambhai Barni, it was Princess Valaya who designed the dress that became a sensation.

Renowned for her ability to elevate European styles with a Thai aesthetic, Princess Valaya’s influence was seen in everything from interior design to flower arranging. It was her mastery of these pursuits that are integral aspects of the modeling of The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok.

A stay in The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok invokes a feeling of long-lost tradition and nostalgia. The hotel has achieved their design goal to bring back the Thai-Colonial style of Princess Valaya Alongkorn's era, sympathetically combining it with the modern world defining “Thai Transitional Luxury”.

The design of The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok beautifully honors motifs directly drawn from the Kandhavas Palace creating captivating aesthetic impressions of the kingdom and paying elegant deference to its royal roots.

A Royal dining experience is presented at The Athenee Hotel there are The Rain Tree Cafe and The Glaz Bar which portrays a soft femininity drawing inspiration from Princess Valaya Alongkorn’s admiration of lady’s etiquette.

Overall, the Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok has not only excelled in preserving its historical heritage but has also excelled in enriching it, delivering a very welcome re-introduction to the Royal house.

Medical Tourism

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.

Partnering With Bumrungrad

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. The Joint Commission International certification (JCI) is recognized as the gold standard in medical certification and serves as a reassurance for first time medical tourists.

Luxury Respite

The Athenee Hotel has partnered with Bumrungrad Hospital to ensure that both your pre and post procedure care is in the most relaxed environment and that your specific needs are looked after.

Day and Night in Bangkok

Walk Bangkok’s best shopping route! Ascend the escalator at the BTS Skytrain Phloen Chit station, just a few minutes from our hotel, and take the aerial corridor into the architecturally dramatic Central Embassy. Keep walking along the Skywalk and you soon arrive at Gaysorn Plaza. A couple of minutes away is CentralWorld and continuing on this shaded elevated walkway takes you to Siam Centre and all the shops of Siam Square.

Erawan Shrine is one of Bangkok’s best-known and most colorful daytime activities. Housing a statue of Phra Phrom, the Thai representation of the Hindu god of creation Lord Brahma, the shrine is a blaze of color from the heaps of marigolds, fragrant with incense, and there is a resident dance troupe performing classical temple dance moves. Take the Skywalk for a memorable aerial view.

The proximity of the BTS Skytrain to our hotel means that many of Bangkok’s historic and cultural attractions are within easy traveling distance. Three stops away from the Phloen Chit station, at National Stadium, is the Jim Thompson House, where Thailand’s famed Silk King lived and where gorgeous silks are available for purchase. Also at National Stadium is the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, the hub of Bangkok’s art scene, the ideal place to catch a daytime show or exhibition.

Bangkok’s tuk-tuks are famous all over the world! Explore the city by night with a four-hour tour by tuk-tuk, cruising around the walls of the Grand Palace, taking in famous temples including Wat Pho, and visiting the Flower Market, which is at its busiest during the night. Stop off to sample some traditional street food and a cool drink. An English-speaking guide is there to curate your journey. Only two people (or, at a squeeze, three!) travel in each tuk-tuk.

Bangkok’s Chinatown is one of the world’s oldest and largest, and along with being a popular tourist attraction is a haven for food lovers. Here, in the restaurants, at the food stalls and in the markets, are the authentic tastes of China. Your guide collects you from the hotel and whisks you away to the bustling, neon-lit streets of Chinatown’s nightlife scene to sample dishes brought over to Thailand generations ago by Chinese immigrants and now prepared by their descendants.

Asiatique occupies the former docks of the East Asiatic Company, and faces the Chao Phraya River. Featuring a historical theme from the period of King Rama V, Asiatique is an enormous night market with 1,500 shops and stalls and 40 restaurants, most of which are housed in the former warehouses. Live performances are another big nightlife attraction. Your guide is your perfect companion for this riverside experience in Bangkok.
