Summer Water Lilies Afternoon Tea

Summer Water Lilies Afternoon Tea

A Fusion of Art and Flavour – Afternoon Tea Redefined

The world of afternoon tea takes a delightful turn at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. We’ve brewed a collaboration that transcends boundaries and honours heritage in the most delectable manner imaginable.

Imagine the timeless elegance of afternoon tea seamlessly intertwined with the artistry of French pastry by our Executive Pastry Chef, Franck Istel. But wait, there’s more! Each delicate bite is a vibrant tribute to Thailand’s fresh ingredients, bursting with colours inspired by the summer lotus – the very essence of Jiraparnn ‘Khun Banana’ Tokeeree’s contemporary Thai art.

What sets this experience apart? The seamless fusion of art, exquisite flavours and a touch of history. Khun Banana has crafted a stunning 3-tier tea stand, shaped like lotus leaves, that narrates the tale of the Sra Pratum Palace in summer. Once the site of a lotus pond, part of the Palace grounds, it has now been transformed into a backdrop for a truly unforgettable reimagining of this beloved tradition.


Meet Khun Banana

A seasoned bespoke furniture and decorative art designer and maker with over three decades of crafting beauty and grace. Her commitment to hospitality shines through each creation, including the Northern dance-inspired fingernails’ lamps, adorned with specially selected blast metal. This unexpected element elevates her collections to exquisite works of art.

Of course, another standout piece is the tea stand itself. Inspired by the Sra Pratum Palace’s lotus pond, it's a fusion of history and modern artistry. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this stand embodies Khun Banana’s signature style and reflects her passion for timeless pieces.
