Many cities throughout the world have luxury hotels, but in Bangkok the fortunate guests of such establishments enjoy a unique oriental splendour.
Located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the very impressive Mandarin Oriental offers a private butler service and nine restaurants from which to choose. A favourite amongst guests is the China House restaurant, which takes guests back to the decadent days of Shanghai of the 1930s. Entertainment and facilities at the hotel include a world-renowned spa, two swimming pools, a fitness centre, lovely gardens, plus a unique opportunity to learn Thai cuisine at the hotel’s cookery school.
This five star hotel has nearly 300 rooms, some of which are suites. The accommodation is decorated in a tasteful modern style. It features ceiling to floor windows, allowing guests unobstructed views of the spectacular skyline.
Opened in 1998, the Peninsula is the epitome of Thai elegance; enfolding guests in luxury and indulgence from the moment they cross the threshold.
Situated in the heart of the downtown area, the Sukhotai hotel’s guests spend their Bangkok holidays in surroundings that fully illustrate Thai artistry. Throughout the hotel, visitors will see wonderful pieces of Southeast Asian art on display. The Sukhotai is a far cry from some other Bangkok hotels that make no attempt to reflect the beauty of the local culture.
The Four Seasons
The name of this Bangkok hotel is known for being synonymous with the word luxury. The degree of luxury is evident the moment you step into the impressive lobby. It is decorated with hand-painted silks, intricately executed Thai carvings, and traditional Siamese architecture. Close to both shopping and business venues, the Four Seasons is an ideal starting point for tours in Bangkok.
Named after a fabled oriental paradise, the Shangri-La certainly lives up to the image. It provides visitors with a tropical haven, surrounded by verdant gardens alongside the meandering river. From a practical point of view the hotel provides easy access to the Skytrain, which quickly transports guests to explore the delights of Bangkok.
Those that take Bangkok flights specifically for the shopping possibilities of the city, will appreciate this luxury hotel located adjacent to the Siam Paragon Mall. The Siam Kempinski offers its guests the choice of several swimming pools, each with splendid water features. They provide a cool oasis where there is some relief from Thailand's sultry warmth.
This five-star hotel prides itself on being thoroughly modern and will appeal to guests who expect the latest in terms of technology. The Grand Deluxe Rooms have LCD televisions with cable and satellite channels, as well as iPod docks, broadband access, and wireless data connections.
The Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong
This luxury hotel is centrally located, being very convenient for guests that wish to indulge in a variety of adventures during their stay. A visit to the nearby King Rama I's Grand Palace is very popular, as is a tour of the Pasteur Institute, a snake farm that is home to dozens of venomous reptiles.
The Dusit Thani
Once the tallest structure in Bangkok, the Dusit Thani (a town in heaven) has provided a temporary residence for many luminaries over the years. Anna Kournikouva and Margaret Thatcher are names in the past guests’ list. It is located opposite Lumpini Park with its lakes and wide avenues.
