Bangkok's Newest Boutique Hotel


Bangkok has long been deservedly famous for its grand hotels, most notably the Mandarin Oriental. Now the city can boast a new boutique property, the 47-room Villa de Pranakorn, located in the lively and historic Sam Yot district, a short drive to the east of the Grand Palace. The hotel is owned by the Kittisuwan family who emigrated from southern China to Thailand over a century ago. Set around a courtyard pool, the property features a minimalist design inspired by the area’s Sino-Portuguese architecture.

Samranraj, a Thai fine-dining restaurant, is helmed by Bangkok-native chef Jatupoom “Bank” Suksiri. His menu offers dishes such as Chinese-spiced duck breast and seared foie gras with tamarind, wild mulberries, coriander chutney and black currant sauce, and stir-fried spider crab leg with yellow curry powder and seasonal vegetables. (The villa is located at the heart of one of Bangkok’s most vibrant culinary districts; the street-side seafood restaurant Raan Jay Fai, made famous by “Chef’s Table” on Netflix, as well as by the award of a Michelin star in 2018, is just 350 yards away.) Other amenities at the hotel include a treatment room and a small fitness center.
