Hotel description

When it comes to top-flight luxury on a massive scale, the Far East is where it’s at — Europe and the Americas have no shortage of impressive accommodations, and even their own chapters of the big Asian franchises, but in terms of sheer luxury overkill, there’s nothing in the West that can touch a place like Bangkok’s Shangri-La hotel.

This hospitality monument is perched on the banks of the Chao Phraya river, its 799 rooms divided between two wings, the original Shangri-La wing and the more business-oriented Krungthep wing, both offering commanding views of the river and the Bangkok cityscape, many from spacious private balconies. The guest rooms, most recently refurbished, are roomy, contemporary, identifiably Thai in style, rich with fine silks and teakwood accents and furnishings, and decidedly modern in appointments, with satellite television, high-speed internet access and full-size working desks.

As you’d expect from a hotel of this size, the Shangri-La is practically a village unto itself, with a correspondingly lengthy list of facilities. The Chi spa is a new addition, and has become a major draw, offering a wide range of treatments inspired by Chinese and Himalayan traditions. Five restaurants and a number of bars and lounges leave guests spoilt for choice, and the palatial fitness center includes aerobics classes, two pools, and tennis and squash courts. However self-contained, the Shangri-La is anything but isolated; the location is central, and the Skytrain station, steps away, places all of Bangkok at your feet.

  • NOTE: Visitors from most countries are issued 2 to 4-week entry permits on arrival and upon presentation of a passport and a ticket for the return or onward journey. Entry permits cannot be extended while you are in Thailand. It is advisable to check with a Thai embassy or consulate in your country before departure. If you are planning a longer stay, apply for either a 60-day tourist visa or 30-day transit visa from Thai embassies and consulates overseas. These can be extended at the Immigration Office in Bangkok for a nominal fee.
