Banyan Tree, Bangkok

Towering above Bangkok’s city center, the 327-room Banyan Tree Bangkok takes luxury and pampering to new heights. After checking in, take the elevator straight to the 61st floor, where you’ll find the most amazing rooftop lounge in Southeast Asia. Shaped like the front of a giant ocean liner anchored high above a sea of neon and steel, the open-air Moon Bar has 360-degree views. It’s an intoxicating introduction to Thailand’s titanic capital.

Located in the central business and embassy district on South Sathon Road, the hotel is 40 minutes drive from Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Its accessibility affords guests great ease for conducting business, shopping, entertainment and sightseeing. Step into Banyan Tree Bangkok Spa for a rejuvenating retreat, dine at one of its 12 superb outlets.

The 327 rooms and suites are done up with soothing Thai silks that cover the beds and drape the huge windows, are decorated in a traditional Thai motif of dark wood against deep earth tones. Thailand is renowned for the warmth of its people, and the service here exemplifies the country’s celebrated standard for hospitality. And guests won’t want for options at mealtimes; in addition to the signature Thai restaurant, Saffron, and the Cantonese menu at Bai Yun, there are more than 10 spots on the property to eat or drink, and that’s not counting room service.
