FLORAL JOURNEYS

In Thai, “Kandhavas Palace” spells “scented residence”. And indeed, our Princess Valaya Alongkorn was passionate about indigenous flora and plantations. So what could be more appropriate than a 30-minute demonstration of how to make the perfect Siamese Potpourri or fold a royal lotus? It’s all part of our Floral Journey curated by our concierge.

OPTION A: SIAMESE POTPOURRI

The Siamese Potpourri, used to scent royal residences, dates back to the 16thcentury Kingdom of Ayutthaya. We use its authentic formula, preserved in a poem composed by a princess, to reprise the historic art and enchanting aura. Discover how it also reflects the then-Kingdom of Siam’s contacts around the region through the use of Javanese “Bu-nga Rampai”, bu-nga meaning “floral” and “rampai” meaning miscellaneous in classic Javanese.

After whichever activity you choose, you may also opt to complete your journey by enjoying a specially created royal afternoon tea.

Join our florist master for an intimate workshop for small parties of guests only.

Available for 4 – 10 persons by prior reservation only.

OPTIOIN B: THE ROYAL ART OF FOLDING LOTUSES

In Thailand, the Royal Lotus is a symbol of purity worthy to pay homage to a Buddha Image and make offerings to Buddhist monks in various religious ceremonies. As for the royal art of folding lotus flowers, it is traced back to the Kingdom of Sukhothai in the 13th century when royalty began using lotuses in religious festivals, after which the practice spread throughout the land.

MUAY THAI

Our Luxury Collection Concierge invites you to develop a taste for Muay Thai. Thailand’s vibrant national sport, combines an unforgettable experience of what it means to be Thai with one of the best work-outs around.

Steeped in local culture, this mesmerizing martial art was developed centuries ago as a form of close-combat referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”. The hands become the sword and dagger; the shins and forearms act as armor against blows; the elbow fells opponents like a heavy hammer; the legs and knees are the axe and staff.

 

Available for 2 – 6 persons by prior reservation only.

For reservation please contact our concierge ext 4023.

Date: Monday & Wednesday

Time: 06:30 p.m. – 07:15 p.m.
