Bangkok is one of those places where the opportunity to be pampered just begs itself, and with some great deals available at some of the world's most opulent and service minded spots, why not take advantage of some truly great stays. For many, the most romantic place to be in Bangkok is along the Chao Phraya River, and choices abound here, like the classic and still setting the five-star standard Mandarin Oriental, alongside other classic players like the Peninsula and Shangri La. Perhaps Bangkok's most exclusive property, certainly its most expensive, The Siam Hotel, lies further up river, offering plenty of private pampering. The luxury hotel scene is not confined to the water though by any means. Smack in the heart of downtown you will find the extravagant St. Regis as well as the truly ritzy Siam Kempinski and its award winning Sra Bua restaurant. Also downtown yet with the city's best views over Lumphini Park, the Sofitel So sets itself apart with some amazingly creative design, and the Okura Prestige is another elegant possibility in this area, with a combo of great dining, drinking, and spa options to complement its fancy rooms. Older but still great classic spots include the Grand Hyatt Erawan and the elegant Sukhothai along Sathorn Road. Bangkok truly has one of the most comprehensive list of luxury stay possibilities that you will ever come across, so many that you might just have to come back!
