A hotel steeped in rich history dating back 143 years, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok has long been an icon of the city.

Overlooking the Chao Phraya River, guests can dine outdoors or indoors at the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok’s all-day dining restaurant, The Verandah. Upon walking into the restaurant, diners enter a bright open space surrounded by windows with picturesque views of the lush greenery. The color scheme of the room matches the exterior, with rich greens and earthy tones. The room is also lit with hanging glass lamps, making the space bright and open.

When walking further into the restaurant, diners can view the commissioned mural painted in traditional temple technique that spans 17 meters long and wraps around three walls by Bangkok artists Anusak Paowpusri and Manussanun Wongrianthai. The mural depicts an outdoor scene with turquoise blues and vibrant greens.

Sitting near the mural makes guests feel like they are immersed in the outdoors with the matching cushions. The mural continues into a vibrant, orange room with white ceilings and couches, creating a comfortable, relaxed feel. The silky green and orange pillows tie into the colors of the room and mural.

The sides of the restaurant offer comfortable seating on couches for guests to dine and enjoy the atmosphere. As guests exit the restaurant into the outdoor portion, there is a large, white banquet table with woven chairs, ideal for large parties and celebrations. The floors in the room are a white and black pattern that contrast with the turquoises and greens throughout the rest of the restaurant. The outdoor seating offers the same, comfortable couch seating with a gorgeous tree in the center.

Wilkes was sure to maintain the history and culture throughout the hotel, paying homage to the property’s heritage. He emphasized thoughtful details such as the pineapple symbol, which is a superior and important fruit in Thailand. The thorough interior overhaul included an updated lobby, common and corridor spaces, dining venues, as well as new visions for the guest rooms and suites.
