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.
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.
