Bangkok's stylish stay
178 Rooms / 51 Suites
The epitome of contemporary Thai luxury, The St. Regis Bangkok is distinguishingly dapper. Marked by its patterned furnishings and carpeting, white-marble surfaces and floor-to-ceiling windows around every corner — from its trendy restaurants and bars to its spacious guest rooms and suites — The St. Regis stands as one of the most exclusive hotels in the city.
Textured walls, patterned high-back furnishings and smooth white marble define the chic Asian style of the Bangkok hotel. Its high-ceilinged lobby features a sophisticated color palette of purples, blacks and grays, with oversized black metal candles to one side of a plush lounge area. Extravagant décor and gilded appointments are found throughout The St. Regis Bangkok’s public areas — areas that during the evening are more often than not also buzzing with hi-so clientele clamoring for tables at food and wine hot spots like Decanter, JoJo and Viu.
Guest rooms are outfitted with state-of-the-art comforts and, like the rest of the hotel, sport an absolutely gorgeous design — think marble bathrooms with walk-in rain showers and Laboratoire Remède products, headboards upholstered in stylish gray fabrics, flat-screen televisions, DVD players and iPod docks. Of course, there are also those beds; those heavenly, king-sized Sealy Posturepedic beds with a pillow-top mattress, made with Egyptian cotton linens and feather down comforter, and finished with your choice from the room’s pillow menu. If there were ever a hotel to have breakfast, lunch and dinner in bed, The St. Regis Bangkok is the place.
Need dinner reservations, transportation assistance, clothes pressed or just about anything else you could think of? Simply call on your personal butler any time of day. St. Regis’ signature butler service is one of the best perks at the hotel. Another one is its Elemis Spa. The Thai-inspired oasis of tranquility offering 16 treatment rooms and pristine wet areas is one of the most popular in Bangkok — book your Exotic Coconut Rub and Milk Ritual Wrap well in advance. We love the chic couples room, with white curlicue decorative screens framing city views, an egg-shaped wicker seat that hangs from the ceiling, a Jacuzzi and a standalone all-glass shower. A 24-hour fitness center equipped with the newest Technogym machines ensures you can work up a sweat before your spa visit. Or swim laps in the hotel’s 15th-floor outdoor infinity-edged pool that’s surrounded by lush plants and spots to lounge.
When you’re ready for a gourmet bite or a glass of fine wine, head to one of this luxury hotel’s eight restaurants and bars, which include acclaimed fine-dining establishments. Under the direction of Chef Stefano, contemporary JoJo has become one of the most respected modern Italian restaurants in Bangkok, in no small part due to the chef’s mouthwatering signature dishes, like slow-cooked Boston lobster with wild rice, Mediterranean-style octopus and Sicilian lentil pasta. Viu, which features panoramic views of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club’s golf course and horseracing track from its 12th-floor location, serves exquisite international cuisine and an impressive breakfast buffet in the morning (the array of fruit is impressive) — champagne optional. Zuma, a trendy Japanese eatery with a long menu of sakes and 1,500-bottle-strong wine cellar, is a late-night spot where live DJs provide the sexy soundtrack.
If it’s just drinks and snacks you’re after, head to The St. Regis Bangkok’s plush wine bar Decanter to sip well-chosen imported labels while looking out on the city through large floor-to-ceiling windows or grab a window seat at classy The St. Regis Bar and try the hotel’s Siam Mary, a twist on the classic Bloody Mary made with Thai chilis, basil and lemongrass.
Adjacent to the Royal Bangkok Sports Club and the Ratchadamri BTS Skytrain station on Rajadamri Road, the luxury hotel is ideally located halfway between the city’s lush Lumpini Park and its dizzying Ratchaprasong commercial district. The park is a serene green space perfect for an escape from Bangkok’s concrete jungle, though it’s best to visit in the early morning or evening hours to avoid the often-scorching midday heat. In Ratchaprasong, you’ll find retail bliss of every persuasion, from indie boutiques at Siam Square to trendy fashions, electronics, gourmet groceries and more at Siam Paragon, Siam Center and Central World Plaza — and there are hundreds of restaurants, snack stalls and cafés within these three massive shopping centers, too.
