ASCOTT OPENS SOMERSET RAMA 9 BANGKOK IN FULL WITH BRAND NEW F&B OFFERINGS JARDIN DU BOEUF AND BEAUTY IN THE POT
Bangkok, Thailand, June 2022 – Capitaland’s wholly-owned lodging unit, The Ascott Limited, is pleased to announce the full opening of Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok with two brand new food & beverage offerings for its guests – Jardin Du Boeuf and Beauty in the Pot.
Putting the past two years behind, when it could only open partially, Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok has fully opened its doors since March 2022 to welcome guests back to its upscale accommodation with all operational amenities, such as the infinity pool, state-of-the-art gymnasium, residents’ lounge, ballroom and meeting rooms, all complementing its 445 exquisite hotel rooms and fully equipped serviced residences. Located just 450m from Phra Ram 9 MRT Station and 3km from Asoke BTS Station, it is within close proximity to the city’s shopping malls, entertainment hubs, dining options and commercial offices in the new central business district, making it ideal for both leisure and business guests who are on short- or long-stay.
Together with the full opening, Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok welcomes two restaurants on its premises, promising its guests two of the best dining options in the city.
Jardin Du Boeuf, which opened on June 9th, is the first steakhouse in Thailand to offer sustainable dining with unique steak-cooking techniques using its signature charcoal grill, allowing diners to choose between sustainable wood and mangrove charcoal.
Helmed by Chef Don Sujith, Jardin Du Boeuf is unwavering in its commitment to sustainability and ethically sourced ingredients, while the menu offers a wide selection of grass-fed dry-aged beef, including signature cuts such as wagyu, ribeye and striploin, Moroccan spiced lamb chop, as well as other creative dishes and desserts.
Known as the "Master of Dry Aging", Chef Don is an award-winning chef who has travelled across the world, from Sri Lanka to the Maldives to Thailand to take charge of Jardin Du Bouef.
An equally exciting restaurant at Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok is the soon-to-open Beauty In The Pot, representing the first foray into Thailand by Paradise Group, the international food & beverage conglomerate with over 100 dining outlets around the world.
Located on the ground floor of Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok, Beauty In The Pot is inspired by the growing food-for-health culture. The restaurant offers six varieties of soup bases, including their all-time favourites, Beauty Collagen and Spicy Nourishing Broth, and combines them with premium ingredients and homemade specialties to create hotpot meals that are both flavourful and healthy at the same time.
|Ms. Mathuros Wongpradoo, Executive Vice President & General Manager, said “At Beauty In The Pot, we believe that delicious food can boost your beauty from the inside out. That's why we are proud to offer 6 fantastic soup bases and sides, formulated to heal, nourish, and revitalize. Let us share with you our passion for good food made with care, so that we may all enjoy a healthy life.”|
|"We are delighted to welcome our guests back to Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok to experience the property for all that it has to offer, with beautifully-designed guestrooms, serviced residences and amenities that are only matched by the warm, attentive and thoughtful service of our team of passionate service staff,” said Mr. Gaurav Chopra, the General Manager of Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok and Area Manager, Bangkok for Ascott in Thailand. “The best validation for this experience is from our guests, who have ranked us in Trip Advisor’s Top 9-12 hotels out of almost 1500 hotels in Bangkok within the short span of time that we have been operating.”|
Mr. Chopra added, “The addition of Jardin Du Boeuf and Beauty In The Pot will only serve to complement and elevate that experience to a whole new level.”
