As travel pros, here are the rooms we’d choose for a Bangkok city break.
WHEN VISITING A VIBRANT, 24-hour city like Bangkok, your choice of hotel room is, well, key. The room you choose becomes an important element of your trip. It’s where you retreat after a long day of exploring the city to relax, rest and reflect while the hotel provides the luxury of space to breathe.
A well-designed and appointed room in this busy metropolis will let you recover optimally and prepare for another exciting day in Asia’s city of angels.
Among our favorite hotels in the city is Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, which won two major awards from us last year: Best City Hotel in Thailand by Travel + Leisure Asia and Best Leisure Hotel (International) by Travel+Leisure India. From its rare ground-floor garden to tiki drinks at the sky-high Bar.Yard and everything in between, there are fresh and fun concepts to discover throughout the hotel.
Since this is a Kimpton property, pets are welcomed as warmly as human guests and can enjoy many spaces throughout the hotel and its grounds. The hotel even offers specific floors dedicated to rooms that can accommodate pets.
The hotel’s location, in a prime area of Langsuan, is just minutes from Lumpini Park and places guests in Bangkok’s true heart. Whether you plan to explore the historic riverside or make the most of the Siam district’s shopping, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok puts you in the center of the action, while its green surrounds offer a respite from the city and incredible views from many of the hotel’s rooms as well and the infinity pool.
While every room offers a design hotel feeling, including modern furniture and light fixtures, below are our picks for the best luxe, conversation-starting rooms in the hotel and what’s so special about each one.
