This was our first visit to Bangkok. i would give this property 6 stars or more if i could. My family and I were greeted as we exited our taxi. THIS HOTEL IS GORGEOUS!!! We were able to get a room with a river view. At the reception desk we were offered cold lemongrass scented hand towels (it was super hot outside) to cool off and something refreshing to drink. our room was ready early so we were able to check in and get settled and off to enjoy our first day in Bangkok. There is quick access (also free) water taxi to take you to the BTS sky train station where you can hop on and see what Bangkok has to offer. The sky train is easy to follow. The hotel has a great swimming pool with poolside service. It also is connected to a shopping center so you can walk over and get Starbucks coffee or even stop at 7 eleven for some snacks. The hotel staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful --- even helped get early morning taxis to the airport when we needed them. we will plan to stay there again! Thank you to everyone-- from the doorman, reception desk, concierge and the cleaning staff. stay healthy. Read less

As a result we extended our stay at this beautiful resort for a whole week. Despite very low occupancy we were very well looked after and that is a credit to all of the staff. In particular we would like to thank Sugar and Kate at Front Desk for assisting us to extend our stay and at the same time thank Joy at Tradervic's Breakfast Service . Joy is a real professional who knows true hospitality --- what a star ! Highly recommended and look forward to seeing you in December. Please keep safe and keep well. Read less
