Chiang Mai’s boutique resort 137 Pillars House has opened a luxurious 34-suite hotel, 137 Pillar Suites, on Sukhumvit Soi 39.
 
It's marking the arrival with a special afternoon tea set in collaboration with celebrity chef Roger Van Damme. Known for incorporating molecular gastronomy techniques in his pastries, the Belgium-based, Dutch chef’s profile includes being named chef of the year by Gault Millau in 2010 and his own Michelin-starred restaurant, Het Gebaar.
 
Available every weekend at the hotel lobby, the afternoon tea set features four of the chef’s signature creations: a beautifully plated mousse; cream in varieties like Pink Lady (apple, puff pastry, Earl Grey) and Lemon Squash (lemon and a range of citrus flavors); milk chocolate mousse (with black currants, raspberry, white chocolate and basil) and coffee creme brulee (with chocolate, spices and citrus).
 
The set also includes some savory bites, scones and a pot of the house brand organic tea (B1,370) or a flute of Champagne (B1,890). Advance reservations required.
