Step Inside this Stylish and Refined Bangkok Hotel
As the year draws to a close, if you’re anything like us, you’re probably dreaming of faraway adventures in tropical locations. Thailand has long been a go-to destination for Australians; there’s something magical about stepping off the plane that immediately brings a sense of calm and wonder to the soul. Even in Bangkok, the bustling, lively Thai capital, we found a sense of stillness and peace at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park.
The impressive hotel houses 1,360 rooms and suites, two swimming pools with day beds and cabanas (we won’t lie, they were hard to leave), a state of the art 24-hour fitness centre with yoga and Pilates classes, and a luxury spa (where rejuvenating treatments are accompanied by spectacular views of Bangkok’s skyline. Bliss). But despite its large size the hotel thrives on a feeling of calm and tranquility, blending Thai heritage with chic sophistication throughout.
Located along Sukhumvit Road in downtown Bangkok, the hotel is surrounded by the city’s most vibrant shopping (the EM District malls are just a 10 minute walk across the lush, green Benjasiri Park), business and entertainment districts. But with two of its five restaurants ranking in TripAdvisor’s top 15 in Bangkok (we had the best massaman of our lives in the Siam Tea Room, and the succulent Peking duck in Pagoda is so good you’ll be talking about it for weeks) we’re betting you won’t want to leave this deluxe destination.
If luxurious perfection is your vibe, keep scrolling to see inside the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park and add it to your must-visit list.
Talk about a grand entrance. The enormous lobby makes for a luxurious experience from the minute you arrive.
Super-spacious bathrooms add to the luxe feel. We were obsessed with the freestanding bath and the Thann spa products during our stay.
Suites are spacious, and there’s enough room to work, or kick back in your own private lounge and brush up on your TED Talks (there’s a dedicated TED channel thanks to the hotel’s global partnership).
OK, this is probably a no-brainer, but with two pools, super-comfy day beds and cabanas, and waiter service, we can't think of a reason why you’d want to leave.
The market-concept buffet breakfasts at the Goji Kitchen and Bar are a must-do. We’ve never seen (or eaten!) so many delicious local and international dishes.
