Travellers are spoiled for choice with the capital’s abundance of luxurious, design-oriented hotels.
Thailand’s culture of gracious hospitality and a natural affinity for the finer things in life have resulted in some truly spectacular resorts, residences and hotels. The next time you find yourself feeling flush in the Southeast Asian City of Angels, indulge in a stay at one of the following places.
It took Bill Bensley more than half a decade to design this intricate urban resort on the Chao Phraya River. Although the property may one of the newer five-stars in town, it feels as though it has centuries of history behind it, thanks in part to the hundreds of rare antiques scattered throughout the opulent grounds.
No other hotel in this city — and indeed, few in the world — can match the long, proud history of this grande dame. Lauded literary geniuses from Somerset Maugham to Tennessee Williams have stayed here. Even James Bond swung by in The Man with the Golden Gun. Soak up the stories of these gilded halls as you enjoy afternoon tea in the Authors’ Lounge or live jazz at the Bamboo Bar.
An immersive approach to the local culture that goes well-beyond the standard touristy options makes this sleek hotel stand out from even many of its upscale peers. Guests can take a Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) class, learn how to cook classic Thai dishes from a top-flight chef, or embark on a cruise through the city’s khlongs (canals) with an expert guide.
Join the city’s well-heeled for an afterwork glass of vino at the buzzy 494 bar, before heading upstairs to Tables for colossal steaks served with all the traditional accompaniments. The spa here, which features individual villas surrounded by a garden right in the heart of Bangkok, is exceptional, as are the handmade risottos and pastas at Spasso.
Understated it most certainly is not, but this neon-lit, oh-so-mod number in Sathorn is one of the hipper stays in town. Though the flashy hotel is plenty of fun, the real gem here is the adjacent The House on Sathorn. It took more than three years of restoration to polish the former Russian Embassy, but the slick resulting dining venue and bar was more than worth the wait.
In its previous incarnation as the Four Seasons Bangkok, and not far from the embassies of Wireless Road, this spot was a favourite of visiting politicians including U.S. President Barack Obama. The rebranding has brought new life and energy into the place, while keeping many of the historic features that made it so special.
Contemporary design in Sukhumvit District with two exclusive features: yoga and tai chi lessons included and Thai haute cuisine at the award winning Nahm restaurant.
A new 5-star hotel within the Central Embassy department store, on the 34th,35th and 36th floor. Rooftop terrace with swimming pool.
