A Romantic Escape: The Peninsula Bangkok’s Valentine’s Glamping Getaway
The Peninsula Bangkok, lauded for its luxury and unparalleled service, is unveiling a unique Valentine’s Day retreat for couples seeking a restful yet glamorous escape. The Valentine’s Glamping Getaway invites couples to immerse themselves in nature’s splendour at the Land of Us Camp in Ratchaburi province, offering a luxurious blend of camping and bespoke services.
Available for two couples only (one couple per trip) over a period between February 14-18, this exclusive one-night adventure promises an unparalleled experience. The couples will embark on a chauffeured journey in a cutting-edge BMW X7 from The Peninsula Bangkok to the enchanting campsite, a scenic 2.5-hour drive through Thailand’s picturesque countryside that marks the beginning of a truly memorable and romantic itinerary.
Upon reaching the camp, the couples will be treated to a 90-minute Asian Trinity Signature Massage in a private spa tent, setting the stage for relaxation and indulgence. A sunset champagne toast follows, preceding a sumptuous al fresco dinner personally crafted by Chef Richard Burkholder, featuring a special “Love Along the Mae Khlong” menu.
Richard Burkholder is The Peninsula Bangkok’s Junior Executive Sous Chef. Having joined the hotel in 2019 as Chef de Cuisine at The River Café and Terrace, he swiftly rose to oversee production and maintain top-notch quality across all outlets. For the Valentine’s Glamping Getaway, he curates a bespoke five-course menu using premium local and international ingredients.
This menu includes delights like Hokkaido scallop crudo, grilled duck breast and foie gras, smoked Mae Khlong River fish cake, and a decadent baked Alaska. As the night unfolds, couples can stargaze before retiring to their customised Airstream from LuxRV Thailand for the night.
The following morning, a Champagne breakfast awaits at Khao Krajom, a mountaintop viewpoint nestled on the Thailand-Myanmar border. The panoramic views and another menu crafted by chef Richard featuring smoked salmon with caper and parsley salad, cast-iron frittata with grilled vegetables, salsa roja, and avocado promise a delightful start to the day.
The adventure concludes with a visit to a lively local market, providing a glimpse into the vibrant local culture of the area. Couples then have the option to return to The Peninsula Bangkok for a night of comfort in one of the hotel’s well-appointed Terrace Suites.
Beyond creating cherished memories, those booking the Valentine’s Glamping Getaway will also be contributing to the local community through the Rak Khao Krajom Club. Established by Ratchaburi residents, this club works to preserve the province’s wildlife habitats and local ecology, showcasing The Peninsula’s commitment to sustainable and responsible luxury.
