If you are looking for something out of the ordinary and unusual then this is the hotel for you!
The hotel is only about 10-mins ride away from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi international airport but it is like you are in another world. To get there you can take the free shuttle bus (you'll need to hunt down the staff at the Level 2 Gate 4 meetings point) and hope your timing is good as the shuttle bus leaves only once an hour. The bus quickly leaves the sanitised setting of the airport and follows a route that gives a more natural feel for the country ending up at the end of a muddy lane surrounded by poor dwellings and waste land.
Do not let this put you off! The hotel is inexpensive, modern (less than a year old), clean and quite contemporary. Check-in is smooth and fast and the rooms are spacious and airy. The whole hotel has modern, polished concrete floors and white walls. It gives nice impression but the management would be advised to hang a few paintings/pictures to break down the monotony and make it more homely. The restaurant offers a nice mix of Asian and International cuisine, my green curry was simply divine and one of the best I have eaten. The staff are very willing and try their best, though need to work a bit on refinement. But that is the point perhaps, the whole experience is quirky and unusual but a whole lot of fun.
Definitely worth considering for a one stay before an early morning long-haul departure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vismaya – the name derives from Sanskrit and conveys a sense of wonderment, even amazement. Indeed, guests are certain to experience the very same when visiting a hotel of such grace and tranquility a mere five minutes from Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport.The low-rise, resolutely modern setting encompasses 67 well-appointed and technologically advanced rooms comprising 63 Deluxe, three Executive Suites and one Signature Suite accommodation types. Guests likewise enjoy a courtyard with swimming pool and garden area; food and drink venues including poolside terrace dining for Thai and international dishes; as well as a lobby bar serving not only cocktails but also fine teas and coffees along with gourmet bakery.Located in a quiet side street off Kingkaew Road, the hotel lies outside the main flight path of Suvarnabhumi yet nonetheless allows the convenience of stepping from a plane to stylish accommodation in far less time than would be required if one were staying in central Bangkok. Further adding to such convenience, Vismaya operates its own airport shuttle service providing transport to and from the airport.
