Fodor's Bangkok's 25 Best, 5th Edition
Check Rates from our Partners
The rooms at the Peninsula have plenty of high-tech gadgets, like bedside controls that dim the lights, turn on the sound system, and close the curtains; bathrooms with hands-free phones; and TVs with mist-free screens at the end of the tubs. Because the hotel is in Thonburi, its spacious rooms have impressive views of the Bangkok skyline. A free shuttle boat takes you across the river to the nearest Skytrain station. The restaurants serve Cantonese and Pacific Rim cuisine, as well as a Westernized version of Thai fare. There's a long swimming pool with private gazebos.
Bangkok's Riverside Sanctuary
Some argue that the Peninsula sits on the wrong side of the Chao Phraya River, across from the downtown sprawl. But the views from the west bank are actually far superior, taking in all of Bangkok's old "Venice of the East" grandeur and its best new modern architecture, while a private pier and 5 minute ferry service running throughout the day and evening gets rid of any notion of inconvenience. With Bangkok firsts such as televisions in the bathtub and "diva for a day" programs for young ladies, no stone is left unturned by the youngest member of Bangkok's luxury property scene, and with the level of pampering you'll receive from the award winning staff, you might be tempted never to even cross to the other side!
