My wife and I were traveling on honeymoon and, following a change of plans, booked a room at the last minute. It was clear from the get-go that the hotel is of a standard above the usual 'five star' options: the staff were welcoming and attentive; the corner room we stayed in a wonderful balance of tasteful, elegant decor and technology; the gym, spa and pool superb.
We ate at a couple of the on-site restaurants, which were excellent. In fact, it was telling that when we caught up with a friend on our first day there he spoke of the hotel's breakfast buffet in tones of reverence as being 'the best breakfast in Bangkok'. Based on my experience, I have no reason to doubt him!
No matter how good a hotel looks, it's the people that really make it: of special mention are the ever-smiling Vanessa on the front desk; Samir, for taking the time to chat with us and clearly showing that he's hands-on (in too many places I've stayed the 'Management' are heard of, but never seen) and of course the wonderful Panida - the 'farewell' macarons were very much appreciated!
Our stay was a highlight of our trip and I'd therefore have no hesitation in recommending The Okura. Until next time!
