Bangkok is bit of a bipolar city. On the one hand it’s chaotic and best known for its nightlife, but on the other hand it offers ample opportunity for world-class service and luxury. The Peninsula Bangkok is firmly in the latter camp, as this five-star hotel is a literal oasis of relaxation on the Chao Phraya River. The private Peninsula ferry service is a cool way to arrive to the hotel, and its wooden boats also offer visitors river tours of the city. At the hotel, the spa and outdoor riverside pool are the premier facilities, but there are also some good restaurants. As far as the rooms go, each of the hotel’s 370 comfortable guestrooms offers views of the river and city skyline. To ensure the best rate and room, book your hotel in Bangkok as soon as you know what dates you will be staying.
