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
Hotel situated in the business area, although a short walk from many bars, restaurants, shopping including the famous pat pong marker. Sky train also nearby within 10 mins walk. The staff and service was second to none a little hiccup was compensated by a wonderful surprise on returning to our room after dinner. The room size and bathroom was huge for a major city and ours was the lowest rate room, bedroom and living area, bath and shower. Breakfast catered for all an amazing selection of cooked food, fruits, pastries, bread, cold meats etc etc. We did not use the pool or spa but they both looked wonderful just not enough time! We would have liked a dink at vertigo roof top bar, but it was so busy at 10pm and our feet after a long day would not allow us to stand. We are told to be sure of seating go early or have dinner.
Room: we booked a two bedroom suite, it's very spacious and comfortable though it looks kind of dated. The steam room concept in the bathroom is wonderful. The sink doesn't really work though, the water flow is very congested. Having various pillow options is great, love the robe and slippers provided and well laid out for us. We even got some jasmine scents provided. Service: check in and out was smooth and service rendered at the concierge is helpful. However I left some clothing in the room and no effort was made to inform us when we came back to collect our luggage. Breakfast: we went for the club lounge breakfast and selection was average. Quality of food is also not high and we decided not to have breakfast in the hotel the next day. We didn't try the basement buffet breakfast though. We had complimentary canapĂ©s and drinks throughout the day in club lounge but didn't try as we were mostly out. Price: we had entertainer app voucher so we got good savings and only paid slightly less than USD100 per person per night. For the price it's really a good deal. Transport: concierge is helpful to book a SUV that sits four of us comfortably with our luggage to the airport on the last day for 600thb. Not the cheapest around, but if u pre-book early you could get a better rate. Location: it's not near siam or platinum mall area, but rather in between the two. Quite near emquartier too. Need to cab everywhere but plus point is that the roads outside the hotel are relatively clear
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.
