Waldorf Astoria Bangkok

Sep 25, 2018

With its coveted location overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is an impressive debut for the esteemed hotel brand in Southeast Asia. No expense was spared here, from hiring world-renowned designer Andre Fu to lend his signature style to the interiors to elegant touches like the spectacular cantilevered pool deck. The 171 rooms and suite start at a spacious 50 sqm and boast state-of-the-art amenities. Guests can stay in shape by swimming laps in the temperature-controlled pool or working out in the gym, then unwind in the supremely soothing spa. At Front Room, the hotel’s signature eatery, Chiang Rai-born chef Rungthiwa Chummongkhon puts a Nordic spin on Thai cuisine, while the Bull & Bear specializes in grilled meats and features an extensive raw bar. The crown jewel is the Champagne Bar, which features a jaw-dropping view of the skyline and a selection of fine bubbly.
