When it comes to staying in Bangkok, the Banyan Tree certainly ticks all of the boxes. We spent three nights here and from check in to check out we had a great experience.
We booked a Club lounge suite which was perfect, and the amenities and food provided were definitely worth the extra money. At afternoon tea the lounge provides food relating to each of the restaurants in the hotel so it was a pleasant to be able to try light bites that we're different every evening.
As a special treat we booked to eat at the Vertigo restaurant located on the 61st floor which provided some great views of the city. As a signature restaurant in any first class capital city hotel, prices do reflect this, but overall we enjoyed the experience. As a minimum, having a cocktail at the Moon Bar, which is adjacent is an absolute must.
We also ate at the Saffron restaurant where we enjoyed amazing Thai service. This is highly recommended if you are overwhelmed by the amount of restaurants in the guide book claiming to serve excellent food. We tried one of these which was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel which was average at best.
One small word of caution is that taxis and tuc tucs tend to try and rip you off when you ask to be taken back to banyan tree so be firm and you shouldn't have to pay more than 100bt from most places(I would guess even that is a rip off). Unfortunately most taxis would prefer not to take you than put the meter on.
Highly recommend the Banyan Tree as it as good as any other 5* which we have stayed in around the world. Must mention the staff also who are both friendly, attentive and helpful. We are really glad we chose the Banyan Tree Bangkok!
