The St. Regis Bangkok

Dec 9, 2011

The hotel is embellished with all sorts of Thai accents—swathes of raw silk; stingray-clad wall pieces—and guest rooms which start from a generous 45 square meters with jaw-dropping views courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling windows. In keeping with the St. Regis ethos, the property melds unabashed opulence with tasteful restraint. Perched on the 15th floor, a stark, black-granite, 22.8-meter pool sparkles with fiber-optic lights after dark; next door is the gorgeous Elemis Spa, where you can relax in a hammam while soaking up views of Lumpini Park. Naturally, there’s no shortage of dining and drinking options, including JoJo (Italian), Viu (international) and Zuma (modern Japanese). Sip your preferred vintage at Decanter, an intimate wine lounge with a globe-spanning 1,200-bottle collection. And at the St. Regis Bar, defined by soaring ceilings and black-suede columns, sample the brand’s signature drink, the Bloody Mary, reinterpreted as the Siam Mary—feisty with chili, lemongrass and Thai basil— is served in a custom-designed silver goblet.
