The award-winning 137 Pillars House is a stunning 30-suite boutique hotel with a rich colonial past, built around the original colonial teak homestead which dates back to the late 1800s. 

It is located in a leafy residential enclave a few minutes’ walk from the historical Watt Gate Temple, Ping River and boutique shopping area. The hotel is a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH).

Enjoy a romantic gastronomic journey to celebrate Valentine’s Day as you wine and dine your significant other. The hotel promises an "exquisite newly launched Michelin Guide six-course tasting plate menu" created by the hotel’s executive chef Mam.

Couples can dine at either of the hotel’s two restaurants, or have an intimate table for two set up beside the pool, on the lawn in the tropically landscaped grounds, in the Old Teak House, or on the balcony in the privacy of their suite. Two glasses of special Valentine’s Day cocktail are included with the meal and guests can select additional wine or champagne to accompany their meal at an additional cost. For an added sense of dramatic flair and romance, you can have your champagne sabered by the sword at your table.

Your romantic evening begins with the chef’s innovative appetizer “'Blowtorched Tiger Prawns and Salmon’ Heart” of baby cos lettuce, semi-dried tomatoes with spicy Thai chilli vinaigrette. This is followed by “Broccoli and Green Curry Veloute” in coconut milk topped with deep-fried basil and crispy shallots, or “Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil” with local shitake and button mushrooms.

Next is a “Rocket Salad”, lightly tossed with olive oil, apple, cucumber ribbon and orange segments. Continue with a delicious pasta of “Truffle Capellini” -- capellini in truffle cream sauce and crispy Parma ham.

For mains there are three choices: roasted chicken breast with assorted vegetables, sweet pont neuf potatoes and jus; roasted veal angus, pan-roasted with baby vegetables, whipped potatoes and port wine beef jus; or pan seared tuna loin with lemon-whipped potatoes and baby carrots served with warm tomato-caper-basil vinaigrette.

Finally, melt your loved one’s heart with K Mam’s “Heavenly Peach Pie”, served with vanilla ice-cream. Throughout the evening, for those dining in the Old Teak House and grounds, the resident pianist and guest violinist will serenade you with romantic melodies.

The Valentine’s Day package from February 14-16 for two includes private round-trip limousine airport transfers; two nights in a luxurious Rajah Brook Suite; welcome fruit basket; daily breakfast; six-course Michelin Guide tasting menu plus two glasses of special cocktail.

The package is priced at Bt31,574++. Additional nights are available at best available rates.
