The All-New Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River Plans February 2020 Opening

Thailand, Bangkok City. October 10, 2019

With its grand opening just a few months away, the all-new urban resort of Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is now accepting reservations for arrivals beginning February 1, 2020.

Set along 200 metres (650 feet) of uncluttered riverfront, architect and designer Jean-Michel Gathy has conceived a fresh landscape that integrates successive indoor and outdoor spaces through a series of cascading buildings, courtyards, terraces and water features across 3.6 hectares (9 acres) along Charoenkrung Road.

"Sometimes dramatic. Sometimes intimate. But always charismatic," says Gathy of Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok, where he's placed new surprises at every turn. High ceilings and glass walls provide breathing space, while pools and flowing water echo the constant movement of the Chao Phraya River. Thailand's natural beauty and the city's urbane charms come together in every aspect of the interiors, punctuated by a serious art collection amassed by Gathy himself. Celebrating the country's legendary craftsmanship and artistry, a dedicated Art Space will showcase contemporary Thai artists.

"Jean-Michel Gathy has truly set the stage for a Four Seasons experience like no other," says General Manager Lubosh Barta, who has been carefully assembling a team of more than 600 staff dedicated to personalising every stay and every visit to the Hotel, its restaurants and lounges, resort-style spa, and event spaces, all led by an all-star team of leaders from all over the world. "The opening of Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River will be nothing short of spectacular in every respect."

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River will offer 299 guest rooms including suites with garden terraces and an extraordinary, two-storey Presidential Suite; an urban spa with a focus on mind, body and soul; two infinity pools overlooking the river; thoughtful amenities for families including a fully-supervised complimentary kids club; a private boat dock; extensive event spaces highlighted by a waterfront ballroom and terrace; and world class culinary offerings.

A New Destination for Dining and Drinking in Bangkok

Beginning with a welcome drink offered by world-renowned mixologist Philip Bischoff and his bar team, the BKK Social Club at the heart Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is where the world comes together - travellers and locals, cuisines and cocktails, past, present and future. Located on the Hotel's central courtyard in a dramatic tropical space flanked by outdoor terraces, including one reserved for the enjoyment of fine cigars, BKK Social Club promises to herald a new era in Asia's high energy bar scene. Think Buenos Aires a century ago with a Bossa Nova beat, innovative cocktails featuring fresh Thai produce, bar dishes that unify comforting local and Latin flavours, rare spirits and shared punch bowls, modern glamour with hints of Art Nouveau, and champagne toasts on the terrace.

Additional new dining concepts being introduced for the first time at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River include Yu Ting Yuan, a high style Cantonese restaurant with a show kitchen led by Michelin-starred Chef Qui Xiaogui; Riva del Fiume, where Executive Chef Andrea Accordi's creativity takes centre stage both indoors and al fresco on three terraces; Brasserie Palmier for tropical French cuisine in a lively setting; The Lounge for the Hotel's signature afternoon tea as well as casual dining and drinks; and Café Madeleine, a neighbourhood-style pastry shop for sweet treats, classic French bread and brewed beverages; as well as chairside refreshments between the Hotel's two infinity pools, and 24/7 in-room dining.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
