Hotel with a nice pool - please advise

Staying in Bangkok for 3 or 4 nights in Feb 10.

On our travels, we like to do the sights until about 1400-15.00, when we start to get fed up and all templed out!! We then like to go back to our hotel for a few hours sunbathing by the pool.

We do not want a pool that is shaded by the hotel in the afternoon.

Any ideas? 4 or 5* is fine.

Great question. Looking forward to the replies. Hopefully the Shangri-la will be among those that fit the criteria.

Hilton Millenium Bangkok or Chatrium Suites would do the job,

NEClausen: thanks for validating our choice. Is the pool at the Kungthrep Wing in the afternoon shade or can we expect some afternoon rays?

The new pool is situated at the Shangri La Wing and has both sunny and shady places all day. Really nice and close to the Next2 restaurant, where you can enjoy food and drinks, inside or outside.

I have stayed a couple of times in the Krungthep Wing (last time in December 2009), but has never used their pool.

As they currently are renovating parts of the hotel, you should ask them for a room, which will not be affected by any noice during your stay.

I will return myself for 2 nights on March 10th and already counting the days..

Have a nice stay.
