Wow. This hotel experience literally took my breath away. The only other hotel that comes close was the Dussit Thani's Rattanakosin suite. But the Shangra-La wins the overall experience without even breaking a sweat. I've stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world. Thailand. USA. Mexico. Canada. Japan. Taiwan. The Shangra-La is a MUCH better value and provided an overall experience that absolutely left the competition lightyears behind.
Our in-residence butler, Phillips, is a big part of what made our experience. Everything from travel assistance to happy hour drinks to advice about tours and culture -- Phillips was always there to help us with a beautiful Thai smile on his face. He was, as they say in America, the icing on the cake! He took our experience over the top from being just a great hotel experience to being a personalized adventure where every whim and need was perfectly catered to.
If you ever stay in the Krungthep Wing, I strongly recommend that you request Phillips by NAME personally. He will make your experience one that you will never forget.
I hope to stay at this hotel on EVERY visit that I make to Bangkok from now on. It really makes a world of difference. The spa is world class. The food is some of the best in Thialand. The facilities are fantastic. The river location makes getting around even easier than the BTS because you can take water taxis. I wish I could find ANYTHING to complain about, but the honest truth is that I can't. I have absolutely NO complaints -- only compliments.
I saw that they also offer serviced apartments. While I may not be in the market for housing in Bangkok right now, if I ever am, I am absolutely going to look into an apartment at Shangra-La and request that Phillips be our butler. I really can't praise Phillips highly enough. Nothing we requested was ever a problem, even when we thought that maybe we were asking too much!
I LOVE THIS HOTEL!!!! IT IS TRULY PARADISE!!!!!
