For a long time, the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, has been one of Thailand’s most popular destinations for the rich and famous, and for good reason. Nestled on the banks of the Chao Phraya river, in the Bang Rak business district of central Bangkok, this stunning riverside hotel offers a unique mix of sheer opulence and exceptional service.
Take the Ayurvedic Penthouse of the spa for instance, where you could enjoy an unforgettable Indian head massage, but there’s way more to this stunning location than words can describe. There’s a long list of extravagances to drool upon at Bangkok’s Mandarin Oriental, and just a few people are lucky enough to enjoy this lavish treatment within a lifetime.
Featuring exotic woods, silk upholstery and dazzling amenities, the 358 splendid rooms and 35 luxurious suites of Mandarin Oriental have catered to various guests, including the likes of Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn, in the 130-year history of this amazing place. Even more impressive, across the Chao Phraya River you’ll find 14 luxurious suites, nestled in a traditional Thai house made of expertly carved golden teak.
Wealthy people usually go for the 985 square feet Authors Suite, boasting butler service and floor-to-ceiling windows with river views; however, the Siam Suite, with its Chiang Mai furniture and contemporary northern Thai watercolors might also be a fine idea. Rest assured, boredom will not affect guests here, as nine restaurants, including Le Normandie and lovely live-jazz Bamboo Bar will cater to their every need.
