The Okura Prestige Bangkok

Aug 9, 2012

Occupying the top floors of an energy-efficient building near Bangkok’s embassy row, the Okura Prestige offers a clean, modern design that incorporates Thai artistic influences with Japanese functionality. Adjacent to the hotel’s small spa is an airy health club, but the real gem is an outdoor infinity pool that offers sweeping views of Bangkok’s changing landscape. A trio of food outlets—including Elements, which offers a creative take on western cuisine; Japanese fine dining restaurant Yamazato; and Up & Above, where the menu covers Asian and Western dishes—all take advantage of the hotel’s views.
