Looking for a unique and swish stay in Bangkok? Here’s a great hotel in the city with amazing décor, therapeutic spas, and Michelin star fine dining
The scrumptious Thai food, the scorching tropical sun, the endless shopping, the bustling city streets and most of all, the vibrant energy and culture of Bangkok – Thailand never fails to please all our hedonistic pleasures. Our go-to weekend destination spot has spawned countless lifestyle hotels that leave travellers and thrill-seekers spoilt for choice, but we’ve been recently acquainted with one that you should slot into your wanderlust list without hesitation. When it comes to representing the forefront of trending swish stays, Pullman Bangkok Hotel G is it.
A location that inspires
Though not in the heart of the city, Pullman Hotel G is located right at the epicentre of Bangkok’s business and entertainment district, Silom Road. Silom does boast its own charm with bars and restaurants that line the streets, and finding reprieve from the city’s suffocating congestion is easy with walking distance to the tranquil oasis known as Lumpini Park, a welcome distraction from the concrete jungle.
As for the hotel, Pullman embodies cosmopolitan living at its finest; the delicate balance of industrial chic and fashion-forward edginess is apparent in the décor. The lobby is filled with quirky curiosities such as a vintage bicycle and beautiful taxidermied butterflies that will pique your interest at every turn. And we hadn’t even stepped into our room yet.
The whiteout-themed G Deluxe room is a minimalist’s dream comes true. The oasis of white creates a visually captivating and open space, which is a breather from the rather claustrophobic city streets. And we fell head over heels for the room’s amazing view of the Chao Phraya River meandering through the metropolis. Also, say goodbye to tossing and turning and stiff necks, thanks to the extensive pillow menu!
A spa that will heal all your aching muscles (from shopping, probably)
Having sore feet from your intensive ‘hike’ up and down the aisles of Chatuchak Market? Rejuvenate those aching muscles by spending an afternoon in Anne Sémonin Spa. Taking a holistic approach in revitalising your mind and body, the spa fuses an eclectic mix of aromatic essential oils, trade elements and marine ingredients – just the little perk-me-up you need for that next shopping trek at Siam Paragon.
A feast that awaits
But if getting your grub on is your way of recovering for your next carouse through the city, Pullman has enough f&b options to refuel those engines.
Take a bite out of classic American gourmet burgers at 25 Degrees Restaurant. The sister restaurant of the famed Hollywood burger bar, 25 degrees provides a playful and contemporary vibe. Dig into the Number 1 burger (a juicy beef patty topped with caramelised onion crescenza, prelibato gorgonzola bacon, arugula and thousand island sauce) and prepare for an explosion of umami. If that doesn’t float your boat, your can always craft your own dream burger with a large variety of meats and condiments to choose from. Located at the ground floor of the hotel, this burger bar is open 24/7, so you can easily satisfy those midnight hunger pangs after a night-out hitting the clubs in Silom.
But if something a little swankier is right up your alley, head right up to Pullman Bangkok Hotel G’s signature restaurant, Scarlett Wine Bar and Restaurant on the 37th floor. This French fine dining restaurant – headed by Michelin star Chef, Sylvian Royer – offers a fine selection of wines along with tapas, daily specials, imported cold cuts and a larger variety of cheeses. If you ask us, the open-air terrace is the perfect spot to mingle with a cocktail in hand, while admiring the stunning view of Bangkok’s skyline and feeling #likeaboss.
Just when we thought we’d run out of reasons to escape to Bangkok, out pops another one in the form of this stellar hotel that will unquestionably see us back for a revisit. ’Til then, visit Pullman Bangkok Hotel G for yourself and bliss out, will ya?
