BANGKOK, Thailand -  A venue unmatched in Bangkok, Millennium Hilton Bangkok inspires an ambiance of traditional warmth and luxury with aura of urban classic cool. Recently named Best Urban Hotel by Anywhere Magazine, our hotel’s strategic secluded riverside location is easily accessible by our private boat and the new BTS Skytrain link.

Millennium Hilton Bangkok is delighted to announce the opening of our newest dining venue: Maya. This is restaurant that redefines the art of dining – as the evening begins, the entire venue will transform into a theatrical stage wherein fine food and cocktails meld with Thai dance performance of unrivalled originality – watch as an enchanted evening unfolds before you. In Thai, the word ‘Maya’ evokes an aura of the mysterious, it hints at illusionary magic both mysterious and mystifying.

For a theatrical evening we must first present our cast – and first up are the talented dancers and performers from the Patravadi Theatre. Khun Patravadi Mejudon is a name synonymous in Thailand with artful expression, and we are proud to announce our continuing partnership with this artistic visionary. The Patravadi Theatre have created an exclusive performance that will show only at Maya, making every evening a journey into Thai culture that blends the traditional with the thrill and rush of the contemporary.

And the performance doesn’t stop on stage – all of our servers and dancers are costumed by Ruth Pongstaphone, a New York-based designer. Our servers perform as they work – with flowing movements and infinite grace. This is a cultural show that steps down off the stage and weaves amongst the tables. Magical movements are choreographed by Khun Witralai Napan, our restaurant manager, and Khun Sean Nilsuwan – consultant mixologist.

There’s one main event yet to be mentioned – the magical menu designed and realized by Chef Supoj, a man with 17 years experience and natural flair for innovative and classic Thai cuisine. You’ll be amazed as Chef Supoj and his team conjures up culinary delights in a theatrical open kitchen – and sparks fly and the air is spiced with lemongrass and chili, you’ll feel the fire of Thai mysticism and passion. Raise a glass to friends at Maya, as consultant mixologist Khun Sean Nilsuwan has created a menu of cocktails that bring to life the spice of Thai living – using fresh herbs and local fruits, sample glass after glass of exotic elixir that evokes the unknown, the tantalizing and the enthralling aura of Thailand. All the elements combine at magical Maya, a place where theatre, art, fine dining and immaculate service combine for an evening of true cultural indulgence unrivalled in the City of Angels.

Give the gift of Maya, a gift of magic – tickets on sale now.
