a week­end well spent is time cher­ished – and what bet­ter way to charge your bat­ter­ies and to es­cape from the hus­tle and bus­tle of city life than a get­away to Bangkok’s only in­nercity re­sort? Siam Kempinksi Ho­tel Bangkok is a lush hide­away where a num­ber of sig­na­ture ex­pe­ri­ences have been de­vised to pam­per and spoil vis­i­tors; a place where guests are lapped up in lux­ury in a stylish and serene en­vi­ron­ment.

For the ul­ti­mate week­end get­away, check in to a spa­cious Ca­bana Room or Du­plex Ca­bana, both of which have di­rect pool ac­cess. Lazy the day away by the pool, sur­rounded by a beau­ti­ful trop­i­cal gar­den, with at­ten­dants at your beck and call when re­fresh­ments are needed. En­joy a spa treat­ment at an out­door spa ca­bana, or head off to the sanc­tu­ary of Kempin­ski The Spa, where nat­u­ral treat­ments aim to re­store to guests the har­mony of na­ture, while re­ju­ve­nat­ing and re­vi­tal­is­ing.

Guests stay­ing at Siam Kempinksi

are treated to a Kempin­ski Sig­na­ture Break­fast, where the most im­por­tant meal of the day is in­fused with the ho­tel’s rich Euro­pean her­itage. Like the Bircher Muesli, a spe­cial recipe used by Kempin­ski hotels world­wide. Other break­fast high­lights in­clude freshly­baked crois­sants and pas­tries; nu­tri­tious and healthy “power shots” pre­pared from a range of nu­tri­ent-dense su­per foods, such as pineap­ple, car­rot, or­ange and gin­ger; home-made choco­late spreads (made from a deca­dent blend of cream, 64 per­cent Val­rhona Man­jari dark choco­late and ca­cao but­ter); and a se­lec­tion of freshly squeezed juices.

Like­wise, af­ter­noon tea at Siam Kempin­ski – served on week­ends be­tween 2-5pm – is a very spe­cial oc­ca­sion, with a harpist pro­vid­ing el­e­gant back­ground mu­sic. “Af­ter­noon Tea Reimag­ined” is a spec­tac­u­lar culi­nary jour­ney pre­sented in the plush set­ting of the ho­tel’s grand lobby and Hanu­man Bar. The five-course af­ter­noon tea set con­sists of canapés, sand­wiches, scones, mini éclairs and mignardises.

Come Sun­day, it’s time for Siam Kempin­ski’s leg­endary Sun­day Rosé Brunch at Brasserie Europa. Wear some­thing pink and en­joy a com­pli­men­tary up­grade to Louis Roed­erer Rosé Cham­pagne when a free-flow pack­age is se­lected. Avail­able from 12.30-4pm, the feast be­gins with a se­lec­tion of fresh pre­mium qual­ity seafood on ice, with choices that in­clude Cana­dian lob­ster, three kinds of oys­ters, Alaskan king crab and New Zealand mus­sels.

The Ja­panese cor­ner of­fers sushi and sashimi with a ro­ta­tion of spe­cial dishes such as soba, yak­isoba, teriyaki eel, Hokkaido scal­lops and king crab, while pasta lovers are well catered for with choices such as seafood arra­bi­ata, clas­sic car­bonara, and a parme­san wheel with truf­fle mush­room sauce.

An­other high­light of the Sun­day brunch is á la carte main cour­ses cooked to or­der and served at the ta­ble. Choices in­clude Nor­we­gian salmon fil­let with as­para­gus casse­role in Hol­landaise sauce; Hokkaido scal­lops served with braised leeks and ba­con; Wagyu beef medal­lion “Rossini-style” served with foie gras and sautéed spinach in mush­room sauce; and Mur­ray lamb cut­let with pep­per­mint ricotta sauce and lemon jam.

Just make sure to leave space for dessert! A de­ligh­ful se­lec­tion of pink-themed desserts await, such as a dark and milk pink choco­late foun­tain with condi­ments; dulce rasp­berry ba­gatelle; pink mac­arons and pink choco­late cup­cakes. Other desserts in­clude choco­late sun­daes (made to or­der); an ice-cream and sorbet sta­tion; macadamia nut-stud­ded choco­late pound cake; a trio of Val­rhona choco­lates; and a se­lec­tion of sweet Thai favourites.

In be­tween all of this pam­per­ing and in­dul­gences, the world-class Siam Paragon shop­ping mall is lit­er­ally just a few steps away if you’re in the mood for some re­tail ther­apy.

In the fast-mov­ing world we live, we all need a lit­tle break ev­ery now and then. Go ahead, you de­served it!
