The Dhabkwan is a special place, offering peace and tranquility and was exactly what I was looking for and the whole setting was just magical! My cousin visited Bangkok July 2012 and recommended this Resort to me and said when she next visits, she is going to book her accommodation here. I felt the warmth and generosity from the staff and they really bent over backwards to ensure our stay was very special. I loved the authenticity about the place and I would have expected to pay more for the privilege of a true Thai cultural experience, such as this. I also took my 14 year old son with me and wasn't sure what his response would be when he arrived at our accommodation but much to my surprise....he absolutely loved it. We could have stayed in any hotel in Bangkok but I was looking for an 'exclusive historical haven' where we could relax before going into an intense Asia Pacific Extravaganza training held at the Impact Arena. I wanted the real deal and I was so happy I found it. The Resort is situated in Nonthaburi and is still easy access to all amenities by taxi. We stayed 6 nights and dined in almost every night and the cuisine was superb! Breakfast was brought to our room at the time we requested, there was no set time and I absolutely loved the Thai breakfast! Whilst there I also took a Thai cooking class which is something I can recommend to those who really want to get up close and personal with the people and their beautiful culture. The Thai massage is a must do also. Another feature which I found really attractive, was the function room which was perfect for an intimate wedding or a birthday party. This was our first visit to Thailand and we didn't find the language a barrier, rather it made us use other forms of communication. Our room was serviced daily and offered all the luxuries you would expect while on vacation/business - it was clean and comfortable and the firm bed....well that was all part of the experience, in my opinion. We consider the Dhabkwan Resort & Spa to be in a class of it's own, very unique, very boutique, very authentic and I strongly recommend you stay here, if this is what you are looking for.
