"The Charming Embodiment of Fine Living"
" The Eugenia ", an old world style architectural beauty, is embodied in a late 19 -century colonial-style house, charmingly decorated and tastefully furnished by its owner in the heart of down town Bangkok for travellers with refined taste who seek to enjoy more than a touch of the Fabled East.
As to be expected of such neo-colonial structures, there is no elevator in the building to preserve its authenticity; we apologise to those who may miss this mode of conveyance but our staffs are on hand to assist with any luggage.
The Eugenia was inspired by the owner's 83-year-old Vietnamese lady friend, whom we shall call Eugenia and her sense of chic and sophistication and, gracious living. She could well be the human embodiment of The Eugenia herself.
"All guest rooms are appointed with antique furniture & fittings and, furnishings; besides being stocked with quality spa products for our guests' enjoyment."
"The Eugenia" , a 12-suite boutique accommodation which bespeaks of a by-gone era associated with fine Colonial buildings, opulence and luxury, embodies all these virtues in understated elegance and comes complete with swaying palms and antique furniture and fittings; and period furnishings and decorations throughout. The furniture and fittings have been part of an eclectic private collection of the owner and his family collected over time from British & French Colonial Burma, India & Indo-China. And all the beddings are imported from Belgium in pure white linen with feather pillows and duvets.
The lobby, the reception area, the cafe, the library and the lounge are set on the ground floor while all the twelve guest rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors in the main building.
The swimming pool and the Thai sala are set in the rear courtyard; the entire pool area harkens back to a more leisurely time where people of taste sipped tea or coffee and partook of the finest delectable fares under swaying palm trees on balmy sub-tropical evenings.
