The Okura Prestige Bangkok

Japanese-style luxury in Bangkok
VERIFIED LUXURY
Occupying 34 floors of the Park Ventures Ecoplex at the corner of Ploenchit and Wireless roads in the heart of central Bangkok, The Okura Prestige Bangkok is a sleek, modern hotel that’s brought a swish touch of Japanese-style luxury to Thailand’s fascinating capital city — think black-sand garden with oversized stones, warm shades of amber and rust, polished wood and marble surfaces, and highly stylized furnishings.

Inside The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s 240 well-appointed guest rooms and suites you’ll find a similarly clean, soothing design and such top-class amenities as Internet-ready flat-screen televisions, touchscreen digital control panels and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi — some rooms even include free-flowing cocktails and all-day refreshments served in a swanky private lounge.

Expect gourmet takes on classic Japanese, Thai and international dishes from the luxury hotel’s 24-hour room service, perfect for a lazy breakfast in the room’s plush king-sized bed or a tasty late-night snack after a fun night out in Bangkok.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Okura Prestige’s ideal location in the heart of Bangkok’s new city center is perfect for exploring the nearby hugely popular lifestyle malls, and when you’re ready to go further afield, a BTS Skytrain is adjacent to the hotel.
  • We can’t stop raving about the uniquely cantilevered infinity pool at The Okura Prestige Bangkon. Perched on the 25th floor, this 82-foot-long swimming hole is a thing of beauty.
  • The 24th-floor lobby features massive floor-to-ceiling windows, and the outdoor terrace at Up & Above Restaurant and Bar — also located on the 24th floor — is a scenic, stylish spot to snack and sip cocktails.
  • We suggest also squeezing in a meal or three at The Okura Prestige, where you can feast on gourmet Japanese (Yamazato), Euro-fusion (Elements) and international (Up & Above Restaurant and Bar) cuisine.
  • Be sure to book an Okura Club room for access to the luxury hotel’s Club Lounge for complimentary beverages and snacks throughout the day and unlimited cocktails and canapés during the evening.
Things to Know
  • Take note, craft beer geeks — this luxury Bangkok hotel is the only place in town where you can get your hands on a big bottle of Morimoto Soba Ale, a collaboration between Oregon microbrewery Rogue Ales and Iron Chef’s Masaharu Morimoto.
  • Much more than just a 42-inch flat-screen with cable access, the television in all guest rooms and suites is also hooked up to Internet radio stations, Web browsing and on-demand music and movies.
  • Hints of The Okura Prestige’s Japanese heritage are found throughout the hotel, from prints depicting Japanese-style Buddhas to a traditional black-sand garden with oversized black stones in the lobby.
The Rooms
  • Featuring a minimal, modern design style and host of top-notch amenities, guest rooms at The Okura Prestige are classy, comfortable and cozy, a reflection of the hotel’s Japanese ownership.
  • Guest rooms at this luxury Bangkok hotel are awash in a neutral color scheme of taupes and creams, from plush carpeting decorated with flower petals to the mini-bar cabinet’s faux-leather finish.
  • Plush king or twin beds are made with chic Egyptian cotton linens, while a digital bedside panel allows touchscreen control of the room’s air-conditioning, lighting and curtains.
  • Other high-tech appointments include an Internet-ready 42-inch flat-screen television, Wi-Fi access and an electronic Toto Washlet toilet.
The Restaurants
  • The Okura Prestige is home to a ground-floor patisserie and three exceptional restaurants, including buzzworthy Elements (Euro-fusion) and acclaimed Japanese eatery Yamazato.
  • The seasonal five- or eight-course menus offered at Elements change regularly, so while we can’t say what exactly will be available during your visit, we’re confident that chef de cuisine Henry Jordan won’t disappoint.
  • Yamazato is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner offering traditional Kaiseki Ryori (Japanese haute cuisne), two teppanyaki tables and a sushi bar stocked with the freshest seafood from Tsukiji.
  • All day dining with a view is available at Up & Above every day of the week, but the highlights are the Sunday brunch and The Okura afternoon tea.
