In my recent stay in Bangkok I stayed at the beautiful W Hotel in Bangkok. Its a plush new hotel with the typical “out there” W style theme… bright colours and what can be best described as alternative decor.
When you enter the hotel the bright colourful lights and purples just shine through the lobby to welcome you!
The pool is beautiful and expansive! A glass of Malbec and a beautiful Aperol Spritz take their place against this beautiful backdrop… its such a lovely view as the sun paints the surface of the pool with a delightful glow.
The staff are dressed in relaxed white “Hamptons style – look at Moi” beach outfits to keep the vibe chilled. I order a cut white chicken salad and some prawn rolls which are delicious and served with a lovely spicy sauce. Its such a lovely afternoon – so peaceful and super chilled.
The room is spacious with a plush bed… its certainly out there in terms of decor… what is with the boxing glove cushions on the bed?
The small sofa looks a bit James Bond style and am I the only one who desires to jump on the bed (I end up not doing it) when I enter a hotel room?
And of course I judge a hotel by the selection it has in its mini-bar (not that I had anything from it 🙂 )!
The view over the Bangkok skyline from the hotel is beautiful…
The bathroom which is not enclosed sits there at the entrance (like most W hotels) and has a deep soaking tub with a rainforest and portable shower.
Its super spacious and very stylish – I just love it.
