An autumnal trip to Bangkok and beyond finds new gems among old treasures
With the heatwave showing no signs of abating, fears are now growing for the eventual epic seasonal comedown that will follow once the sunshine finally fades away. Be proactive and do what discerning travellers do best: keep calm and book your next flight….to Bangkok.
Thailand’s capital has a slew of C&I properties to check out but opt for the stylish and striking Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok (right) which claims to be the city’s “only luxury hotel offering a resort-like experience to the city centre.”
And it certainly lives up to the claim, with lush gardens and secluded pools, plus spa facilities and a grand lobby to kick back in and listen to the talented musicians tinkle the ivories.
For a riverside location, opt for the Peninsula Bangkok on the west banks of the Chao Phraya River. Large groups can be well accommodated in the 370 rooms and the ample event spaces can host receptions for up to 550 guests.
After a relaxing break, head down to Pattaya to check out its deliciously named exhibition and convention hall, PEACH, which offers a capacity for more than 10,000 delegates theatre-style and close to 4,500 seats for banquets.
Meanwhile in Hua Hin, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a new property offering 54 pool villas and 42 suites. The Movenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin also boasts meeting rooms, plus a spa with eight treatment rooms, multiple pools and one very inviting library.
