We've stayed in a few Shangri-La's around the world and there is something about this chain and in particular this hotel in Bangkok that I completely fell in love with. I'm not sure if it was the fact that we had just spent our first two weeks in Thailand and I had just discovered it was my favorite place in the world or just the sheer opulence of the hotel itself?
I normally much prefer modern less formal hotels and the decor here is grand and sometimes fussy. I think it can look very old fashioned in pictures and some of the rooms look dated but the rooms are in fact decorated to a very high standard and have great facilities.
The service is impeccable, some of the best I've experienced in the world. The whole place feels relaxing, charming and completely comfortable. You really have to be there to understand the experience.
We stayed in the Krungthep Wing which is a bit more expensive but you get so much added in it kind of all works out. This included at wonderful high tea on our arrival in the restaurant over looking the river which two hours later was followed by cocktails and canapés in the bar and even sundowner cocktails brought to the balcony in your room by your butler. It really was the most wonderful experience and the perfect end to our holiday.
