Best of the Best Hotels

Top - Thailand

When you think of a hotel that checks all the boxes (outstanding service, comfy rooms, the works) it’s probably one of these winning spots.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is a stylish 5-star retreat with unique interiors and a cosy atmosphere. You'll appreciate the blend of luxury and minimalist elements in its roomy accommodations, complete with soft linen, huge bathtubs, and nice toiletries. With excellent facilities like a fitness centre, yoga room, infinity pool, and rooftop terrace, there's plenty to keep you entertained. For some downtime, visit the spa, sauna, or steam room. The on-site dining options include a restaurant and rooftop bar, and the warm, multilingual staff ensures a lovely stay. Plus, it's pet-friendly, so your furry friends can join in on the fun.

    I loved every second of my stay at Kimpton Maa-Lai. As a young solo business traveler, I often feel uncertain, but I didn't experience a moment of that here. I was greeted by name every time I passed through the lobby. The staff were the best I've encountered in a while, and the service and food were exceptional. I'll definitely be back to Kimpton soon.

    Stayed here on a business trip for almost 2 months and have to leave a review to recognize the incredible staff of Kimpton Maa lai who made my home away from home truly feel like home. The hotel itself is super modern, clean, comfortable with every amenity you need. The sauna and gym are unbeatable. CRAFT coffee is the best coffee I had anywhere in Bangkok. And sitting by the lily pads on the patio outside the lobby was so serene and perfect when I needed to just sit and work on my computer or have a cup of coffee or meal with a colleague. The food , especially breakfast, is out of this world and every staff member goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. I am vegan and gluten free and every one of the employees and chefs knew how to take care of me and would remember what I like to order every day like Tony and the girls who would greet us at the front and seat us at our favorite table and run downstairs to grab my favorite coffee from Craft. Special shout outs to Chef Tareq who would always greet me with a big smile every morning and for the exquisite Arabic food he would make vegan and gluten-free for me- and Chef Gourav who made all my comfort Indian food for me when I missed my mom’s cooking. Also shout outs to all the hard working wonderful staff at the Stock Room. The Italian restaurant on the lobby level is also out of this world and they also went out of their way to make me vegan and gluten free options. It’s hard to list every person but truly every one working at the Kimpton Maa Lai deserves 5 stars. Also special shout out to my personal trainer at the beautiful gym, Nutt! He is the best trainer and also great if you want to learn Muay Thai. Thank you to my kimpton maa lai family for the most unforgettable experience!

    Thanks to Grape, it's easier to check in And even though we arrived here earlier than the check-in time, it was kind of you to guide us and make us continue to be comfortable, so I feel better. Maybe if I come to Thailand again, I should come again
