As we live in Phuket for half the year, a good friend and I decided a couple of years ago that each year we would fly from Phuket to Bangkok for 5 nights of shopping, sightseeing and really just a girls holiday away from our husbands who normally at this time go on a Harley ride somewhere else in Thailand.
I had short listed a few cheap hotels in various locations but after looking at the website of the Anantara Bangkok Sathorn we decided to have a splurge and stay somewhere beautiful. I booked the Stay Longer Package of a 2 Bedroom Skyline Suite at a fantastic price of THB 4,760++ per night, as we were going halves in the hotel it worked out very reasonable for both of us. We were then so excited to receive an email from Francis Zimmerman the GM saying he would upgrade us to a Kasara 2 Bedroom Suite on the 35th Floor, including all the Kasara Club privileges.
We loved this hotel, it is even better than the photos on their website, everyone was so happy and friendly, not one staff member would walk past without saying hello to us or asking was there anything they could do. There really is not one thing we can fault about Anantara Bangkok Sathorn; we absolutely loved the time we spent there.
Our 2 bedroom Kasara suite was fantastic, lots of space, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated with modern comfortable furniture, 2 big bathrooms with good quality toiletries, 2 great balconies with amazing views of Bangkok’s skyline and so important, very comfortable beds and pillows. On arrival to our suite there was a lovely fruit platter and a welcome card from the GM welcoming us and telling us to enjoy our retail therapy!
The Kasara Lounge on the 37th Floor was just perfect; it certainly has that wow factor with beautiful water features and views, great food and free alcohol from 6-8pm. Breakfast in the Lounge was also a highlight, freshly cooked plus a good selection of pastries, cheeses etc and there is nothing better than sitting outside on the 37th floor in the fresh air enjoying the views.
We also had the buffet breakfast sitting by the beautiful swimming pool and the selection of food was sensational. I also have to thank James, the F&B Manager, what a character he is and he also made us feel very welcome, just what we would expect from an Australian :)
Location is in a quieter area but there is a supermarket and 7/11 a couple of minutes walk away, the sky train is about 10 minutes walk, there are lots of local Thai food stalls that set up at night outside the hotel and there is also a taxi rank just outside the entrance, not that we needed to use them as there were always taxis coming into the hotel.
Would I recommend this hotel, most definitely, fantastic hotel, fantastic staff and fantastic value!
So now we are looking forward to next year, if the same specials are on we will definitely be staying at Anantara Bangkok Sathorn again for our girl’s getaway.
