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
My wife and I have just spent 2 nights in an Oasis Serenity double room on the 27th floor. Main room area felt a bit small, but bed was comfy and large. Coffee machine was hard to work out and did not seem to work properly. Having the wardrobe in the bathroom is a bit inconvenient when there are 2 of you. Bathroom itself was a good size with walk in shower and large bathtub next to window. Water was slow to drain out of both sinks. We treated ourselves to a couples 2.5 hour treatment package in the spa. Had 2 good therapists in the biggest couples room I have seen in any hotel spa. Had dinner and drinks in the Vertigo restaurant on one night. An expensive treat, but worth the indulgence for the views and the food. Breakfast (included in our booking) was in the Romsai restaurant. Really good quality buffet style with numerous options with a lovely rock garden to look at. We had access to the living room on the 11th floor. Nice place to have a snack and soft drink during the day. The open air pool on the 21st floor is nice, but the loungers can get filled up from mid afternoon. Gym is decent. The staff were consistently of good quality.

Booked a club room with lounge access at a rate similar to other 5 star properties The room was ok but nothing to WoW about but it had a good view of the city. But at night time all you can hear is other doors being slammed. After mentioning this and was moved to a room which had not been modernised since the hotel was first built and gave us a view of some old woman's washing. The management didn't seem to care about this The club lounge offering was poor compared to other hotels Given the Banyan Tree's stellar reputation I can only summise they have undergone a major cost cutting exercise Next time in Bangkok we'll be heading somewhere else

Just loved the hospitality of staff and food is excellent too. We would like to come here again and again. Room services were provided on time and the staff always maintained cordial and welcoming look on their faces.
The rooftop bar is worth a visit for the views but, beyond that, the clientele are pretty overly impressed by themselves. and the bar adopts a fairly old school dress policy of no shorts though, kind of bizarrely, are happy to lend anyone showing up in shorts (as I did- though they weren't exactly beach shorts) a selection of ill fitting alternative clothes which, I can only assume, are somehow deemed smarter than ones intended attire. Whilst this approach is no doubt easier than one that's discretionary, it's outdated and resulted in us, and I'm sure many others too, cutting our visit short. We'd intended to go for dinner and drinks, but chose to leave after 2 drinks instead.
We stayed 3 nights at the Banyan Tree Hotel. We stayed in a suite and had a fantastic experience. The suite was spacious, the bathrooms very well appointed with a huge shower and large tub. The spa was amazing. What was great is that the hotel is close to the BTS metro line. We walked 10 minutes to the Sala Daeng station and used the BTS to travel around and avoid the traffic. We took the BTS west to Taksin / Central Pier and then were able to take water shuttles to the sites along the river - the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun...etc. We took the BTS north to visit Jim Thompson museum. It made it very easy to get around and the fare is only 25-40 baht per person depending on where you are going. It is much easier and quicker than trying to get through the terrible traffic.
