Mandarin Oriental Bangkok

48 Oriental Ave., Bangkok, 10500, Thailand

With a rich history dating back to 1879, the Mandarin is one of Bangkok's most prestigious hotels. On the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the hotel has hosted presidents, royalty, and international celebrities. Each of the rooms and suites has individual touches, and all have an elegant colonial-style decor of silk fabrics and teak furnishings. The rooms' large picture windows overlook the river or gardens. The service is possibly the best in all of Thailand. The award-winning Oriental Spa is in a century-old teak-wood house across the river; after a short boat ride you'll be met with a warm welcome and a cup of tea before indulging in treatments based on traditional Thai and modern western techniques. The 11 restaurants and bars showcase everything from fine Italian and French to authentic Thai cuisine; don't miss the famous Author's Lounge, known for its colonial charm and English-style afternoon tea.
