Relax at The Sukhothai Bangkok – a secret garden in the city
If you want to experience a true oasis in the heart of the city, book a stay at The Sukhothai Bangkok, named after Thailand’s ancient capital. This stunning hotel won Bangkok’s #1 hotel in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards, and it’s clear why – this first-class property is set among lush tropical gardens and serene lotus ponds. It’s hard to believe you’re just a walk away from Bangkok’s bustling entertainment and business districts, shopping malls, markets, temples, and the Chao Phraya River.
No matter how you’d like to unwind after a day of exploring Bangkok, the top-notch facilities at this sumptuous hotel will cater to you, with a huge swimming pool, award-winning restaurants and bars, an ultra-modern fitness centre and a luxurious day spa.
Contemporary suites are fitted out with all the latest mod cons, yet accented magnificently with old-world Thai accents, such as textured stone, glowing teak, silk, hand-made artwork and live native plants. If you’re looking for a blissfully secluded base in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant cities, you can count on the Sukhothai Bangkok to deliver an experience you’ll remember forever.
Banyan Tree Bangkok – five-star luxury yet a home-away-from-home
Located in the Silom/Sathorn district, the luxurious Banyan Tree Bangkok is an institution in the city. While the Banyan Tree is a large skyscraper, personalised service creates a truly boutique experience, and every huge room features a separate bath and shower, extra living area and seating, so you’ll feel more like you’re staying at a home than a hotel.
Meanwhile, you’ll benefit from some of Bangkok’s most coveted dining experiences, including a rooftop restaurant and bar, with fare ranging from local street foods and delicacies to award-winning gourmet offerings. The health club, beauty spa, rooftop swimming pool and gallery will keep you entertained without needing to set foot outside of the building. If you can be torn away from this luxurious property, you’ll find breathtaking temples, high-end shopping malls, local markets, and the beautiful Lumpini Park right on your doorstep.
Capella Bangkok – immerse yourself in culture
With spectacular views over the sacred Chao Phraya River, the five-star Capella Bangkok is an urban oasis whose small size is in contrast to its big personality. This boutique hotel is situated on Charoenkrung, the oldest paved road in Bangkok, and is close to the city’s best historical sites and modern attractions.
The hotel offers sublime dining experiences with two gourmet restaurants, a patisserie and a tea lounge onsite overlooking the river or lily pond. Work off dessert at the fitness centre or with a dip in the swimming pool, some yoga, anti-gravity yoga, Tai Chi or BOGAFiT, before letting the stress melt away at Auriga Wellness Spa. The spa offers an alluring menu including multiple massage styles, a sauna and steam room, water therapy and more.
The hotel’s graceful villas and suites are contemporary, comfortable and full of natural light and spectacular views. The suites all feature balconies, and the luxury villas feature private balconies or verandas with a jacuzzi. It’s the perfect place to cocoon yourself after a day of exploring.
The Celadon Bangkok – a true boutique experience
The gorgeous Celadon Bangkok is the place to stay if you want to feel like a local while living it up in luxury. With a combination of modern and traditional Thai elements throughout, the ten serviced apartments are perfectly located for exploring the city, while the serene outdoor garden will make you feel miles away from the rest of the world.
After exploring nearby attractions, enjoy a heart-pumping workout at the modern fitness centre or take a dip in the pool – both offer views of the colourful garden. For something more relaxing, treat yourself to a blissful Tha massage at the spa and massage centre. Head back to your opulent room to relax amongst the bespoke art and traditional décor.
