We have recently returned from a truly wonderful stay at the Banyan Tree Bangkok.
Even before we arrived we were treated with first class service - my husband arranged a birthday surprise for me prior to arrival and was helped by the brilliant Akikko at guest services. She was so helpful and friendly and was there to greet us on our arrival which was wonderful. For my birthday she recommended we take the Apsara dinner cruise which was brilliant - food, atmosphere, sights and service. It is a great way to see Bangkok at night and the food was first class especially the snow fish!! We were taken in a mini bus and dropped back to the hotel which was great. You should ask to sit at the front as the views are amazing. We then had a drink at The Moon Bar which is a must for everybody visiting the hotel. The views from the bar are stunning.
Akikko also arranged for us to do a complimentary Thai cooking course which was a great experience... The Tom Yum Goong was delicious!
We had booked a club room and were delighted when at check in (cold towel, cool welcome drink) Akikko told us that we had been upgraded to a one-bedroom suite. The room was lovely - beautifully decorated and the Banyan Tree scented oils created a new aroma every day. The club lounge was fantastic - would definitely recommend booking a club room as breakfast, day snacks and evening canapés and drinks (certain times) were all included. We were greeted there by the wonderfully helpful and friendly Anita who couldn't have done more to help us.
The roof top pool area was brilliant - it really didn't feel like a city hotel, it was extremely relaxing - just what we needed in the Bangkok heat! It is on the 21st floor so we didn't hear traffic noise or the hustle and bustle of the city below. We were often given cold towels and complimentary water which was a lovely touch.
Whilst staying in Bangkok we dined at Nahm (Asia's best restaurant) which is right next door to the Banyan Tree which was a brilliant and memorable experience. The food was unlike anything we had ever eaten in Thailand before.
We could not recommend this hotel highly enough. The location is brilliant - short walk to the sky train, short walk to Patpong, short inexpensive taxi rides to anywhere in the city but for us it was the friendly staff that made this hotel extra special!
