Step back in time in the Grand Royal Suite, located in Thailand’s first luxury hotel: The Oriental, built in 1876. Now a wing in the Mandarin Oriental, it retains the gracious charm of the era. The suite comprises the Ambassador Suite and the Royal Suite, as well as three additional bedrooms. A soothing palette of green and white evoke the peaceful riverside location, while rooms decorated in purple and gray pay homage to the hotel’s prestigious history. The star of the suite is the Victorian-inspired glass conservatory. The light-flooded space decorated with intricate white panels and marble floors has views of the Chao Phraya River and stately gardens; you’ll forget that you are in the middle of bustling Bangkok.
