Banyan Tree Bangkok brings all the comfort and convenience of a five-star resort straight into the heart of the city. With over ten dining options, including a spectacular rooftop restaurant, a spa, outdoor swimming pool, full health club, and more, this is the ideal Bangkok base for those who expect more from their hotel than a simple room.
Why We Love It
♥ Some of the best luxury suites in the capital
♥ Excellent location for gay nightlife
♥ More than ten bars and restaurants to choose from
Banyan Tree is very centrally located in Silom, at the heart of Bangkok’s business district. This is the best location in the city for gay nightlife: Soi Silom 2, with its gay megaclubs and party atmosphere, is just a 10-minute walk away, and the more relaxed gay bars of Soi Silom 4 are just a little bit further.
Style & Design
Banyan Tree Bangkok blends modern high-end luxury with traditional Thai influences. Large windows throughout the hotel provide exceptional views of Bangkok, while tropical greenery makes the spaces feel like an oasis in the middle of the city. Its design is like Bangkok itself: urban and contemporary, but always grounded in the customs and history of Thailand.
Banyan Tree goes the extra mile when it comes to drinking and dining, with a whopping eleven restaurants, bars, and dining experiences to choose from. The rooftop bar and restaurant is particularly worth a visit, but don’t miss out on the opportunity to book a high-end Thai dinner on a traditional barge sailing along the Chao Phraya.
The rooftop pool is excellent, surrounded by tropical plants and with free poolside juice, water, and shoulder and neck massages during certain times of day. The spa offers a range of traditional Thai treatments in richly decorated environment, and the Health Club has yoga, pilates, and Muay Thai classes as well as a well-equipped gym suite.
Guests that book a Serenity Club, One Bedroom Suite, Spa Sanctuary, or Two Bedroom Suite get access to the Club Lounge. This comes with exclusive perks like complimentary drinks throughout the day (including a free flow of local craft beer), happy hour, and complimentary daily laundry.
Banyan Tree doesn’t do rooms. Instead, the hotel offers a range of large, luxurious suites, each with a separate living room. All suites are designed for the comfort and relaxation of guests through small touches like a complimentary aromatherapy burner. Large windows overlook either the Bangkok skyline or the Chao Phraya River so you always feel in the middle of it all.
Most of the suites have their own unique attraction – the Oasis Retreat has a lavish feature bathtub overlooking the city, the Serenity Club room comes with exclusive club perks, and the Spa Sanctuary suite includes its own spa room with unlimited complimentary massages.
