Despite a few destinations of the brand that we were not entirely convinced of by bringing out the best of its DNA, yet, when the Four Seasons hotel brand is mentioned, immediately you’ll think of the elevated upscale luxury and high expectations alert due to the already exalted bar for luxury hotels in booming Bangkok. On arrival to The Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok At Chao Phraya River, many of these expectations were blown out of the water. With a prime Chao Phraya River waterfront location, you cannot be prepared for the scale and magnitude of this dazzling Chao Phraya Estate.
Our arrival was earlier than the usual standard check-in time and this is a small niggle and a little underwhelmed but critical to such a luxury brand as to how the front desk handle this, yet without welcoming us or by asking us how our journey had been (even on check-out for our experience of stay as well as on warding transport arrangements). While the first conversation was to ask for our passports and left us somewhat deflated at this point.
Like any luxury resort, there is a spa and gym, but unless you frequent the fitness area, you will not know that there is yet another swimming pool which is set up for lap swimming and aqua aerobics. Besides, the fitness studio for yoga also has the facilities to cater for aerial yoga. On the recommendation of the fitness team we gave this a go and ended up having a ball even as beginners and this is definitely worth exploring.
We also signed up for the aqua aerobics to burn the extra calories the day after and it was also a lot of fun with fully guided and excellent instruction throughout the one hour session. After indulging so much, it was an indeed welcome inclusion into our daily routine.
The quality of the bread and pastries, the freshly made jamon sandwiches, the homemade preserves, the variety of local Thai and Asian dishes are most impressively spread out, attractively presented and rather inviting. Not forgetting the wood fired pizzas is also available for breakfast. With various live cooking stations for your a-la-minute requests and this surfeit of space and the varieties to spoil you, it all adds to the overall pampering experience.
