Banyan Tree Bangkok in Bangkok, Thailand
There’s something to be said for a 21st-story outdoor swimming pool, but Banyan Tree Bangkok is not just a vertical resort. Situated in one of Southeast Asia’s most dynamic cultural centers, amidst the best retail and entertainment, this is a headquarters of sophistication. It even offers a “shopping companion” to guide you through the city’s alleyways. And with its aromatherapy burner, even your room is a journey for the senses. The restaurant’s 53rd-floor restaurant Taihei serves sake and sashimi in the clouds, and everyone from concierge to massage therapist extends the hospitality for which Thailand is known.
Indulge in a breakfast of banana pancakes and a traditional Thai coffee, sweetened with condensed milk. Energized, visit Bangkok’s Grand Palace, the home of Thailand’s president, and stroll through the famous Buddhist temple Wat Pho, home of the giant Reclining Buddha. On your way to the river, you’ll only need a couple dozen baht to enjoy the street food: chicken satay, mango sticky rice, roast pork belly or a shell of coconut milk. Board Banyan Tree’s own “Aspara” riverboat and enjoy an elegant dinner of crab in coconut broth as you see the traditional floating markets in action.

Reviews for Banyan Tree Bangkok
From the moment we pulled up to the lit cauldron at the entrance we knew we were in for something special. We were greeted by friendly, smiling, courteous staff who seemed eager to please. This extended to reception when checking in. We had a Club Room and it was delightful. True 5 star hotel and as my wife agreed possbibly the classiest hotel we have both stayed at. Booking was made via Luxery Escapes as a 3 night package and we can highly recommend this. Would most certainly stay again and highly recommend this hotel. Simply brilliant.

we had a table at the side looking over bangkok which was beautiful at night, being so high up you could see for miles. it was all open air and the food was great but more expensive than most places in Bangkok, however if such a place exisited in the Uk it would be utterly expensive so for the experience it was relatively cheap
We stayed for 3 days prior to flying to Koh Samui. Pretty much everything about the hotel is 5 star. Room was big and spacious, staff were attentive and friendly. The dining room for Breakfast was good quality and there was plenty of choice of food. We also went to Vertigo and the Moon Bar which we really enjoyed (see separate review). We found the location good too - 15 minutes walk to the Sala Daeng BTS station and also the MRT station was near to this too. The hotel gym is excellent and the hotel pool on the 21st floor is really good too. Just be aware that the pool area is not as big as it looks in the pictures so there are a limited number of sunbeds. As part of our travel package, we were collected and returned to the airport in one of the hotel limousines which was really special. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

OVERALL This hotel is truly a 5 star from the welcome at the front door where you receive a beautiful bracelet of handcrafted flowers, a cold towel and refreshing tea whilst you are checked in. This is a great start after a long flight from London! It is well positioned in the business district and in easy reach from most local attractions. Approx 30-40 mins from the airport depending on the time of day. Split over 62 floors and includes a large varies of restaurants, a good size gym, spa but a rather small pool. If you are looking for a hotel for endless hours of sunbathing this isn't the one of you as it probably is only big enough for 20 people and it is largely in the shade for most of the day. ROOMS All rooms are suites and offer a lounge area with desk, separate bedroom and beautiful large bathroom with separate walk-in shower. The rooms are quite dark and decorated in a thai style but are very pleasant and the beds are super comfortable! RESTAURANTS There are several to choose from but our favourite would have to be Saffron. Is it the best meal we had in the 2 weeks we spent in Thailand. It's a small and intimate restaurant with fantastic thai cuisine. Make sure you booked in advance. Tahei the Japanese restaurant was also great serving fresh sushi for lunch and dinner. The staff are extremely attentive and ensure you have everything you need at all times. Breakfast is served in Romsai and there is everything you can imagine at the buffet from English/America to continental to Asian/Japanese, oh and not to forget champagne. A great way to start the day! There is a small cafe across the forecourt of the hotel which serves good coffee, pastries and sandwiches for a fraction of the hotel costs. Vertigo Restaurant - do not go! This was highly disappointing and super expensive. We had high expectations but were let down. The view is like none other we have experienced across the world as you really are on top of the roof with 360 views but the service and the food do not match the rest of the hotel. So much so that it feels like it is not owned by Banyan Tree. The hotel are strict on dress code so much so that they turn people away yet some how allow children. There were a number of unruly children which takes away from the exclusive feel of the restaurant/bar. It has been poorly designed that guests have to walk through the restaurant to get to the bar. Our recommendation would be, go for a drink to enjoy the views but do not eat as the food and cost just doesn't live up to the expectation. Go to Saffron for dinner instead.

We went for a long weekend away to Bangkok and always wanted to try the Banyan tree, so this time we did. The room was very well appointed, a great bathroom and really comfortable bed. The staff were also brilliant from check-in to check-out. The knick-knacks and little items left by the turndown service were also fantastic. BUT The continued banging doors all day and all night was a massive issue. There is simply not an mechanism to allow the doors to close slowly. It woke us every night at various times (1am, 3am, 5am). We ended up having to buy ear plugs to sleep through the night. Guaranteed, some consideration from the other guests goes a long way, but if the door couldn't actually bang, it doesn't matter who is next door, it won't wake you up. Outside of that, a great experience, but some feedback to the hotel would be to get some springs on the doors to stop the slamming as we probably wouldn't go back because of it.
