Orchids galore!

You my dear friends, who have been following me here since last year, know by now that without any doubt the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok Hotel in, yes of course, in Bangkok/Thailand is my most favourite hotel of all those beautiful hotels I have stayed in.


You also know, that the floral genius Khun Ken, displays every few months one of his incredible creations for the guests to admire.


This time, in order to herald in summer, Khun Ken has ‘decked the hall’ with this striking display of purple orchids.


So, come and lets board an imaginary plane and fly out to Bangkok where we can sit in the lobby once again with our tea, coffee and/or drinks and those absolutely delicious Macaroons 🙂 and enjoy the view.


And if you feel up to staying on for lunch or dinner later, join us on The Verandah for one of  Chef Pierre Rimoneau’s specially created dishes, showcasing fresh white asparagus imported daily from France alongside green asparagus from Thailand Royal Projects. This Asparagus Season lasts until 31st May.  Come back for recipe later!!

  1. My LIKE button isn’t working at the moment… anyway, the orchids are gorgeous ! We always buy fresh plant orchids, instead of fresh flowers. The problem is, all the orchids that Mom buys die in winter. Sad.

    LIKED !

    • Yes, ALL his flower displays are literally sensational. I have seen incredible arrangements in 5-star hotels in my life – but Ken is something else. Go through my site when you have time and you can see many more of his. The hotel changes the display appr. every 3-4 months. I hope when next we are at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok I will be able to photograph also some of his wedding displays!!!!
