We wanted to have a short getaway to a relaxing warm location with a bit of luxury and the chance to experience the Bangkok citylife when we had the energy to do so. The Peninsular delivered exactly what we wanted. Our room with a balcony was lovely - it was a good size, very comfortable and provided everything we needed plus some more. Having a bath watching live English football on the television set into the wall above the bath was one version of heaven.
The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. The restaurants were all very good offering excellent quality food, served in a very friendly and efficient manner.
The pool area is very attractive and it was easy to spend two days around the pool just relaxing.
The Spa was also very good - with free access to sauna, steam room and hot and cold plunge pools. I thoroughly enjoyed my first Thai massage and can recommend that experience to anyone - I felt great afterwards. My only slight criticism was that the quoted prices for the Spa excluded the compulsory 10% service charge but after it had been added to the bill I was asked to sign, it was also made quite plain that a gratuity was expected as well. The service was excellent but I feel you should either accept that you will pay a set service charge or you should be left to determine what gratuity you wish to pay - to have both seems unreasonable.
The location was perfect - on the right (quiet) side of the river with extremely easy access to the city via the hotel water transport which was frequent and great fun to use.
Even though we were there at the same time as the red short demonstrations the hotel was an oasis of calm and we never felt anything but completely safe and well looked after.
