On the ground floor of the Authors’ Wing, this lounge has old colonial charm and is decorated with white rattan furniture. It is considered to be an institution for traditional afternoon tea with scones, finger sandwiches and cakes and of course only the worlds finest teas (or coffee).
The Authors' Lounge is located in the original part of The Oriental, Bangkok, known as the Authors' Wing. The name “Authors’ Lounge” evolved from the many famous writers who stepped through the doors of The Oriental, Bangkok over the years, from Joseph Conrad to Barbara Cartland.
Together with the entire wing, the Authors’ Lounge was recently renovated to its former glory. Delicate, white-washed rattan furniture with hand-painted upholstery and Siamese umbrellas now grace the lounge amid towering bamboo and palm trees.
