We spent out Christmas at this hotel and experienced hospitality unsurpassed. From the time we made the booking they were in touch with us. At arrival our luggage was received and the staff was chatting and making us feel at home. Check in was smooth and we immediately went to enjoy the Happy Hour reception at the lounge and we were there the next day too.
We then moved to the room which had a superb view if the city. The king sized bed was absolutely comfortable with matching down pillows. We had the room turned down and there were bedroom slippers with a placemat ready at either side of the bed with the night drapes drawn with a fruit platter and chocolates laid out with welcome notes from the GM and the Room Manager.
Yes it's what you expect at a high class hotel but at the same time as we describe it we want to say that it was not in vain or taken for granted but it was hospitality at its finest!
To top off the occasion as it was Christmas, the lobby had a gigantic lighted tree with carolers singing carols and Christmas decor was all over the Rainforest restaurant. We had fabulous breakfasts and lunch which was served an international spread covering local, Chinese, Indian and western cuisines.
By the way we also went to the gym which was well equipped and all the machines were working and well maintained, we also experienced a couples' massage package which completed out stay.
We were really overwhelmed by the staff and our stay was fabulous, do give this hotel a try the next time you are in Bangkok where you'll experience great hospitality!
