Couples can say ‘I do’ in a special Thai ceremony or have a honeymoon photo shoot on the immaculate riverside lawn, capturing the cityscape and the world-renowned Sky Tower with its gleaming golden dome as a backdrop.
First on the itinerary for every couple, though, is the hotel’s romantic riverboat cruise – an hour-long tour down the central waterway, taking in celebrated sights from the comfort of the hotel’s classically designed signature boats, cocktail in hand, while the sun goes down. It’s a brilliant introduction to this insanely beautiful city of extremes.
