The Living Room
Blissful daydreaming is inevitable as you look out across the majestic Chao Phraya River from the Living Room at Capella Bangkok. In the morning, gather here to peruse your carefully-curated itinerary and learn Siamese phrases with your Culturist before exploring the neighbourhood. As the sun sets, reunite with friends, family and fellow discoverers to trade stories about your day over a creative libation at the adjoining alfresco terrace.
If a more peaceful day is on the agenda, the Living Room offers respite from the vibrant bustle beyond its walls. Be led into Moments of Mindfulness by a Wat Suthi temple monk or listen to stories about the history of Charoen Krung Road – Bangkok’s first paved road built by the order of King Rama IV in 1861 – and the heart of the city’s vibrant creative arts district. Here you will also discover how to weave Thai flower garlands, marvel at the artistry behind Khon dance and pick up a traditional Thai musical instrument under the guidance of our local experts.
Described as our resident culture seekers, our Capella Culturist are always on hand to guide you through a unique experience of the city. With an insatiable curiosity and a penchant for uncovering the latest treasures along Charoen Krung Road, our Culturist can arrange walking tours of Bangkok’s eclectic local café culture, private meditation sessions with the head monk of a 250-year-old temple, or share with you the best dishes to order at Michelin-starred food stall Jay Fai, whose eponymous owner is considered the queen of Thai street food.
Avid explorers, our Capella Culturist pride themselves on scouring every corner of Bangkok in search of breath-taking scenery, delicious regional dishes and fascinating characters.

As custodian of the community, we are dedicated in the enrichment of our surroundings and the lives of our community, acting as mentors to youths and participating in school initiatives to empower them to create a better tomorrow.
Inspiring Meaningful Education
Every child deserves proper education. But in many rapidly developing cities, thousands of youths are born with the odds stacked against them and find themselves in a poverty cycle. Adopting “Wat Bang Chang Nuea” school in Nakhon Pathom province, Capella Bangkok is dedicated to help break the wheel and make a difference in the lives of these children, nurturing confidence to craft the future they desire. Wat Bang Chang Nuea currently only has seven teachers to meet the needs of the 101 students aged between 3 and 12 years old.
Aside from elevating cafeteria meals and rebuilding facilities that encourage learning and exploration, English lessons and enriching activities aimed at raising resilient leaders of tomorrow will be curated. More than just education, this long-term engagement allows us to be a constant positive presence in youths lives, offering them a slice of stability and comfort.
