This has got to be one of the best places to stay on a vacation (after Shangri-la Singapore).
There is so much that is good here, from the moment you check in until you leave.
We stayed in the Krung Thep wing for 2 days on our way to another resort, and again for 1 night on our way back.
The staff were ultra friendly and and helpful and nothing was to much trouble for them.
We had a lovely spacious room with an extra bed for my daughter, and a view over the river. The beds are huge and probably the best best most comfortable beds in Thailand.
A butler came to introduce herself and very soon we were drinking freshly brewed tea, made in a tea pot with loose leaves. Wonderful tea. Our mini bar was well stocked and all soft drinks were complimentary along with a large bowl of fresh fruit.
The pool in this wing is large enough for a decent swim, and the water is clean as are the surrounding areas, with staff ever attentive providing drinks as required, all included.
High tea was thus served with a wonderful array of tasty tit-bits including scones with fresh cream and strawberry jam.
Come the evening there was 2 hours of alcohol and or cocktails, along with canapés which were heavenly divine and out of this world scrumptious. In fact we didn't even need to go out to eat.
This Hotel has charm and grace in great quantities, it looks great, it feels great, the price is great but believe me it was worth spending a few extra pounds to be looked after so well by some very well trained staff, who made you feel like you were the most important person there at that time. This is a hotel you must try at least once in your life.
We are going back later this week it's that good.
