Bangkok Marriott Resort and Spa
Bangkok Marriott Resort and Spa is a haven of tranquility in the centre of the City of Angels.
As you enter the hotel you are greeted by a torrent of water cascading from the upper lobby to a lily pond. Polished hardwood floors, flower arrangements, lots of natural light and the clever use of tropical plants and flowers give the impression of a traditional Thai house: warm, cozy and friendly where the welcome is genuine.
The polished hardwood floors are followed through into the guest rooms and a further Thai accent is provided by the muted tones of the furniture and furnishings. Bathrooms are big, light and airy with walls and floor of cool beige stone. The facilities are exemplary too, large screen TV, broadband Internet access and of course tea and coffee facilities and a well-stocked mini-bar.

For real luxury then the Royal Suite is a must. It boasts a master bedroom, a twin bedroom, living room fully equipped with the latest in entertainment gadgets. Add to this a boardroom big enough for 12 people along with a separate kitchen and dining area makes and the Royal Suite an outstanding living space.
Bangkok Marriott Resort Junior and Executive Suites
If the Royal Suite is occupied the Junior and Executive Suites are just as luxurious if on a smaller scale but includes the use that most coveted of hotel luxuries the Club Lounge.

World Famous Trader Vic’s Bar and Restaurant
Trader Vic’s is the Marriott’s signature bar and restaurant again located overlooking the river and affording sweeping views of Bangkok and of the river’s bridges and the bustling waterway traffic. As the light of day gives way to the velvety darkness of nighttime the city lights reflecting off the river are ideal for contemplating a perfect day and planning the next day’s activities.
Trader Vic’s heart lies with its traditional Chinese wood-fired oven which because the fire is outside the oven preserves the flavours of the meat, their cooking juices are retained in the food adding to their flavours.

Of course drinks are also available from hot chocolate to iced frappes and chocolate based alcoholic cocktails. The kids are not forgotten either with a plentiful supply of animal-shaped lollipops, waffles and shakes.
