Loved everything about this hotel. 5 star service. Beautiful rooms. Wonderful surroundings. There was a great choice for breakfast. We ate a couple of times in the restaurant which was very nice. We had afternoon tea which was lovely. We also had spa treatments which I recommend. I would 100% stay at this hotel again. It was gorgeous.

We just came back from our lovely 5-day family trip at the 137 pillars house, honestly it exceeded our expectation by a wide margin. As from our past experience, even we stayed at many top tier hotels, the common conclusion is always the training of the staff in Thailand is lacking a bit. Their English skill is usually limited and... More

It is not a surprise how 137 Pillars received the accolade Best Hotel for Travellers' Choice in 2016. 137 PH is not only utterly beautiful place to stay and with a beautiful history behind it, but the service was outstanding.

We made the wise choice to spend our honeymoon here and it exceeded our expectations. We were treated like VIPs. A BMW picked us up from the airport, and upon arriving at the hotel, they offered us delicious drinks and gave us special treats because it was our honeymoon. They also upgraded our suite which included "butler service". The butler... More

Let me start with how beautiful the place was : a heritage structure serves as the center of the property. Even their most standard room was elegantly designed -- with a very spacious indoor and outdoor shower, bath, dressing room and balcony.

We have been there last Easter holidays. This hotel is amazing not only the restaurant, facilities, room but also the service provided. I have to highlight the sweetest staff, Momoco :) she is very knowledgeable and been really helpful in arranging the spa booking and shooting for us. I recommend the spa too!
