The St. Regis Bangkok is one of the top 5-star hotels in the city. It is located in the upscale area of the Ratchaprasong district and is surrounded by luxury malls like Siam Paragon and tourist attractions like the Jim Thompson House.
What sets this 228-room hotel apart from the rest is that it is not only a choice of accommodation for travelers but also a destination of its own. Here you’ll find the usual amenities such as a 24-hour gym, a pool deck, babysitting services, and a golf course within close proximity.
The hotel also features seven restaurant and bars which play host to various pop-up events around the city. One such event is the Sips & Sounds, a series of sophisticated music collaborations with internationally acclaimed Thai violinist Dr. Paye Srinarong. IGNIV Bangkok is about a unique fine dining sharing experience, and VIU restaurant serves International cuisine to a backdrop of the Bangkok skyline and overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club. Other dining options include afternoon tea at The Drawing Room, vintage wines at Decanter, champagne at The St. Regis Bar and light refreshments at the Pool Bar.
Guests can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool, and can visit the well-equipped gym with its personal trainers. To add more to the already buzzing hotel, it also serves as home to the first-ever Asian outlet of Clinique La Prairie.
