Bangkok’s Chao Phraya river is home to some of Thailand’s finest hotels, from the flamboyant urban-retreat Siam to the peerless Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. In early spring, they’ll be joined by Capella Bangkok (capellahotels.com; from $500), which promises to impart zen-retreat vibes in the big city. Its 101 rooms, suites and villas (all river-facing) are enhanced by a full-service spa and, in the kitchens, the estimable talents of Mauro Colgreco – the most exciting bit by far for Bangkok’s famously food-crazed populace, which can’t wait to see what the Michelin-starred man behind France’s Mirazur does with Thai ingredients and culinary traditions.
