Staying in The St Regis Bangkok, or any St Regis for that matter, is more than just a luxurious holiday; it’s about partaking in the brand’s much talked-about traditions. At The St Regis Bangkok, you’re well taken care of by the brand’s famed round-the-clock butler service. Think of them as the personal assistant you’ve always wanted, who can help you unpack and pack, make you coffee or tea whenever you want, draw you a bath at the end of the day, and more.
Then there’s the century-old St Regis afternoon tea ritual: Here, you have a choice of either the Western (with scones and dainty sandwiches) or the Thai set (featuring tapioca balls with pork filling, steamed dumplings, coconut scones and more). The Bloody Mary is also a St Regis signature around the world, since it was invented at The St Regis New York back in 1934. Here at Bangkok, the classic cocktail is given a local twist. Known as the Siam Mary and served in a silver goblet, the familiar yet new cocktail is a fine balance of the heat from Thai chilli and the freshness from lemon, coriander and tomatoes.
Timeless elegance is an obvious theme here at the hotel, and it’s no surprise that the room designs follow suit. Floor-to-ceiling windows keep the rooms bright and airy while offering a view of either the cityscape or the golf green across from the hotel. The rooms are also some of Bangkok’s most spacious. Natural wooden floors, plush carpets and upholstery, sumptuous 300-thread count Egyptian linens – it’s undeniably luxe, but the details and flourishes are executed with restraint so that it’s all still contemporary and classy.
Amenities-wise, there’s a gorgeous pool and deck surrounded by lush plants, a whirlpool, a 24-hour gym and more. The best part is, the hotel is directly connected to the Ratchadamri BTS SkyTrain station, making it super convenient for you to get around the city. But even if you’re not staying here, do drop by The St Regis Bar for the evening happy hour from 6pm to 9pm daily. There’s a one-for-one deal on selected cocktails, and you’ll be enjoying them while taking in the city view from a handsome bar that looks like an elegant Manhattan loft. Your perfect evening, sorted.
