December whole-month celebration

The good thing about December? The festive month gives you an excuse to celebrate throughout the period preceding to Christmas and New Year. And ’tis really the season to be at Capella as the outlet is packed with gourmet promotions. Brunch buffs should tuck into the scrumptious feast by the river at Phra Nakhon to take full advantage of December’s crisp air as well as the pristine, seasonal produce it offers. Live music and kid lawn games are also included to provide a little something for everyone. Côte by Mauro Colagreco also presents its scrumptious Winter Menus for December (Nine-course Carte Blanche and Carte Blanche White Truffle), highlighting local ingredients and the earthy gems of black and white truffles. For drinks devotees, don’t miss out on the festive cocktails and desserts over at Stella, as well as the Tea Lounge, where you can relish in a Festive High Tea, brimming with sweet and savoury bites inspired by the holiday season.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

For a treat to kick off the last week of December, take delight in the Christmas Eve Dinner and Christmas Lunch over at Phra Nakhon that will please your palate with a boatload of holiday classics, like golden-brown whole roast turkey, honey ham, panettone, and, of course, seafood platters laden with delicacies like oysters, lobster, and king crab.

For something even more special, Côte too is offering a flavoursome feast with the Festive Nine-course Carte Blanche for Christmas Eve dinner, and Nine-course Carte Blanche for Christmas lunch. We have a feeling it will blow your gourmand mind.

New Year’s Eve

In the run-up to 2021, guests can countdown in style on New Year’s Eve at Phra Nakhon. Here, the feast will be studded with caviar, black truffle, and premium seafood, along with free-flow wine and champagne. More into fine dining? Côte had got you covered with the Signature Mauro Colagreco Celebration Menu, packed with flavours that are sure to make you go “ooh” and “ahh.” Stella and the Courtyard will also be hosting a New Year’s Eve Party fuelled with champagne, cocktails, and canapes. Wherever you pick to dine, the night’s finale is the extravagant firework display; a burst of vibrant colours to cap off the year right and start 2021 bright.

New Year’s Day

There’s nothing better than to have your first meal of the year at one of the city’s finest restaurants. Saunter over to Phra Nakhon for a festive brunch, or go for the New Year Lunch menu (Nine-course Carte Blanche) at Côte.

Special Room Package

These have a large private outdoor space for private in-room or in-villa dining; a dream for enjoying the fireworks from your own private terrace or balcony and welcoming 2021 in grand style.

Now if that doesn’t sound like a real grand celebration, we’re not sure what does.
