Hidden on levels 12 to 24 of a 47-story edifice, the St. Regis Bangkok offers a stunning contemporary-meets-classic Thai design—swathes of raw silk; stingray-clad wall pieces—and 227 sumptuously appointed guest rooms, which start from a generous 45 square meters with jaw-dropping views from floor-to-ceiling windows. In keeping with the St. Regis ethos, the property melds unabashed opulence with tasteful restraint—not that it fails to dazzle. Perched on the 15th floor, a stark, black-granite, 22.8-meter pool sparkles with fibre-optic lights after dark; next door is the gorgeous Elemis Spa, where you can relax in a hammam while soaking in views of Lumpini Park. Naturally, there’s no shortage of dining and drinking options, including JoJo (Italian), Viu (international) and Zuma (modern Japanese). Sip your preferred vintage at Decanter, an intimate wine lounge with a globe-spanning 1,200-bottle collection. And at the St. Regis Bar, defined by soaring ceilings and black-suede columns, sample the brand’s signature drink, the Bloody Mary, reinterpreted as the Siam Mary—feisty with chili, lemongrass and Thai basil—served in a custom-designed silver goblet.
