Our 4th stay in this wonderful hotel, the staff are second to none. From the outset, when you arrive at Shangri-La , you are made to feel welcome and valued.
We choose to stay in the Krungthep Wing, its very palatial, rooms are lovely, quite oldey-worldey in decor, but very classic. Superb beds, beautiful linens and spotlessly clean.
Bathrooms are large, well equipped with separate shower cubicle, double sinks and loads of toiletries and towels/robes.
Included in Krung Thep wing are, complimentary soft drinks and water in your room, also by the private pool, breakfast , which is excellent, a choice of buffet or waiter service, with the most fantastic fruit juices. Later in the day, High tea is offered, beautiful sandwiches, scones, cakes , a selection of teas.....FANTASTIC !
Then , after a lovely day by the tranquil pool, you have the evening coctails to look forward to !
Literally anything you like to drink, and a wonderful finger buffet to enjoy !
In previous years, this has been accompanied by a singer, sadly, she has now been transferred to the main wing of the Shangri-la !
Staff in this hotel are fabulous, from the doorman through to the pool boys, always polite, smiling, warm and friendly.
On this trip, we went to Hua Hin, but due to the coldest weather ever on record in Thailand, we had to return to Bangkok early, on our return, we stayed in the main Shangri-la Wing, as the Krungthep was full.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, with Horizon Club benefits, this too was fantastic, the room was huge, seperate lounge area, tv in the bathroom and fantastic views over the River.
The Horizon lounge has spectacular views as is so high, and again , all the staff are superb.
Here you also have the benefits of breakfast, soft drinks and snacks thrroughout the day, and evening coctails.......so very hard to say which is nicer !
A review written recently, suggests this is a 3star property, I totally disagree, I travel the world on business, and stay in all the major Chain hotels, and the Shnagri-LA , Bangkok , to me, is probably one of the finest in the world for the price you pay.
