BANYAN TREE BANGKOK
B angkok, the capital of Thailand, is a city constantly alive. By day, the movement of people and buzz of commerce generates an electric atmosphere. By night, the glow of lights across the sprawling city signals playtime, where restaurants, bars and street life create a canvass that invites exploration and discovery. At the centre of the action is Banyan Tree Bangkok, a luxury hotel experience so in tune with Bangkok life that it has become synonymous with the city itself.
The modern urban resort blends a holistic experience with genuine Thai hospitality, and finds itself immersed in stunning 360- degree views of the vibrant city. Easily accessible in the heart of the CBD, the hotel’s stunning form, a tall tower with cut out sections to create interactive spaces, has become a local landmark.
The 61- storey hotel features 327 rooms and suites, each meticulously crafted using soothing tones, natural wood and heavenly Thai silks. The ambiance creates a constant reminder of luxury, and the full height windows your own private connection to Bangkok. Rooms come in a range of configurations including Horizon, Oasis Retreat and Suites. There is also a series of Serenity Club Rooms, each offering added size, a fully functional work area and access the Club Lounge on the 19th floor, where daily breakfast and evening snacks and drinks make you feel at home.
High above the city, on the 21st floor, is a stunning outdoor swimming pool, a cosy escape that presents the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring the big city. There is also a spacious health club, which provides a modern gym alongside yoga, aerobics, pilates and more. For post workout stress relief, there are steam and sauna rooms. And for cultural connection, guests can try traditional Thai cooking classes.
For total relaxation, there is the Banyan Tree Spa, one the most exclusive in town. The packages on offer are diverse, with everything from simple Thai massages through to exotic half- day relaxation sessions, complete with an innovative rainmist experience. The quality of the treatments only equalled by the amazing interior design.
Experiential dining is one of Bangkok’s big attractions; and a number of the city’s best establishments await discovery within Banyan Tree. From the signature Thai delights of Saffron, to the stunning sky garden lounge atmosphere of Latitude, there is something for all moods. The pinnacle of the collection though is Vertigo and its complementary Moon Bar. Perched on the open top of the building, on the 61st level, this modern western restaurant and energetic watering hole set the bar for roof top experiences around the world, and continues to be a truly amazing experience.
Banyan Tree lives and breathes Bangkok. The hospitality throughout brings a constant smile to your face, the food is an intricate cross section of fine global cuisine, and the views are truly immersive and memorable. This is not just an impressive luxury hotel; this is a part of Bangkok that must be experienced.
