Pent-up travellers and cultural adventure seekers alike can book a Deluxe Riverside Exclusive staycation starting from THB 2,300 net per night for up to two people staying in a Deluxe Room and enjoy a guaranteed early check in from 8am and check out until 8pm to make the most of their leisure time.

With a wealth of culinary indulgences to savour by the water’s edge, foodies will delight in the resort’s new Foodie Staycation special offer that gives them a THB 3,499 dining credit for every night booked, to enjoy memorable meals and captivating cuisine at any of the resort’s restaurants and bars. Room rates start from THB 3,499++ per night for up to two guests staying in a Deluxe Room.
Cultural adventurers and budding photographers are in for a sparkling time when they join Khun Diamond, the resort’s inimitable Streetwise Guru, and step behind the tourist scene to discover the real Big Mango on a series of tours that were expertly curated to showcase the city’s hidden cultural gems.
The Klong Tour takes guests on a longtail boat tour of the capital’s thriving age-old lifestyle and rich heritage to discover and experience first-hand Bangkok’s klong network – the waterways that were once the nation’s lifeline for communication and transport. The tour commences along the Chao Phraya River, before branching off into the heart of the city’s fascinating klong labyrinth to reveal unique glimpses of timeless local life and traditional wooden canal homes that jut out over the water.
The journey includes encounters with the floating plants farm; exploring glittering temples that were created in the Ayutthaya era; the opportunity to participate in the Thai custom of feeding fish for luck; and a traditional Thai lunch at an intriguing gallery where guests can browse a collection of locally inspired drawings and learn how to create a Thai painting.
The Bangkok Old Town Art Tour shines the spotlight on Bangkok’s Creative District of Bang Rak along Charoen Krung road towards Chinatown to explore Talad Noi, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Bangkok and often referred to as the city’s secret Chinatown.
Here charming Chinese-Thai shophouses stand steadfast between elegant colonial mansions and historic temples along narrow, winding alleyways filled with street art and mom-and-pop second-hand car parts workshops. Filled with large murals by local and international artists, this former working-class neighbourhood is the hub of Bangkok’s street art and a street photographer’s delight.
