One of Bangkok’s most popular luxury hotels, this 25-year-old gem still manages to impress with ease when pitted against the many glossy newcomers. It’s the managing company’s resort ethos that sets the Banyan Tree Bangkok experience apart. It leaves nothing to chance.
For a city hotel slap bang in the heart of Bangkok’s central business district, Banyan Tree does a fantastic job of cosseting guests in true luxury, with an air of romance and some legendary Asian hospitality to boot.
The tallest hotel in Bangkok, Banyan Tree is renowned for its uninterrupted views, the best in town. The open-air, rooftop Vertigo and Moon Bar on the 61st floor – one of ten bars and restaurants – is the ‘top’ place for taking in the views, and is a must for dinner when the panorama is turbocharged with city night lights. For another great dining experience, book a table on the hotel’s river barge and feast on royal Thai cuisine as you cruise along the Chao Phraya.
Banyan Tree is within easy access of downtown Bangkok’s shopping centres and Silom Road’s restaurants and markets, while Lumphini Park is close by if you crave green space. Need some exercise? Do a few laps in the swimming pool on the 21st floor before flopping onto a sun lounger to catch some rays with a smoothie from the juice bar. Or head to the health club for a steam bath or a sauna, unless a spot of aerobics or a step lesson is more the order of the day. Without a doubt, Banyan Tree Spa is the best way to indulge. A virtual village in size, choose from a wide range of therapies in one of many treatment rooms, some with access to private bathing facilities.
When it’s finally time to retire to bed, traditional Thai meets modern in the rooms at this all-suite hotel. With a spacious feel, even the smallest offers a seating area, teak wood furniture and Thai silk touches. For even more luxury, opt for Club accommodation, which comes with access to the Banyan Tree Club Lounge, where you’ll be granted a host of special privileges.
