Bangkok is a go-to city when it comes to unique food, culture, and never-ending shopping. One area that can provide all of that is Sukhumvit, easily a favorite part of Bangkok for visitors. However, where you decide to stay in Bangkok can either motivate you to get up and explore Sukhumvit or it can be too inconvenient for you to cover much of the area. To fix this problem, here are 10 hotels in Sukhumvit that promise to give not only a great rest but contribute to a great trip overall:
1. Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit
This hotel is 400 meters (1,312 feet) away from Sukhumvit center, which means more sleep and less traveling time. The hotel has its own dedicated walkway to the BTS (skytrain transport system), a straightforward way for those who aren’t great with directions. The popular Terminal 21 mall is also just a skywalk away. Checking in to Sheraton Grande, you can choose for yourself a modern room overlooking the city, or a premiere room that comes with a 24-hour butler service to meet your every need.
At Sheraton Grande’s breakfast buffet, you get an outstanding breakfast selection of eggs, steak, and satay (grilled skewered meat) all made to order, or a ready lineup of international choices including Thai cuisine, Hong Kong dimsum, and even Indian cuisine. What’s even better is you won’t get stuck with the usual orange or apple juice as they provide all kinds of juices, even watermelon!
The rooms are spacious and modern. Not only do you get city views if you’re high enough, but there are minibars and coffeemakers to keep you replenished whenever you get back. If you need some peace and quiet, you can head to their library to read or tap onto the free Wi-Fi to clear your emails. If not, head to the lovely outdoor pool surrounded by lush greenery, giving you a private feel so you can escape into your own oasis.
For your meals, you can step into any of their seven eateries, one of which is Basil that offers an authentic Thai dinner. On another note, being situated within the Sukhumvit area, you don’t have to worry about your meals as you’re sure to find a great eating place anywhere close by to the hotel.
Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit also provides free parking for those renting cars and airport shuttle services for easy and convenient commuting.
2. The Westin Grande Sukhumvit
Located 300 meters (984 feet) from Sukhumvit and right in front of a BTS station, the Westin Grande Sukhumvit is fantastic. The hotel is surrounded by Robinsons, Terminal 21, and many food stalls, with massage parlors nearby. If you need some greenery, the lake and gardens of Benjakiti Park are just 10 minutes away by foot.
The rooms at Westin Grande Sukhumvit are big and clean with custom-made beds and city views. For regular rooms, Wi-Fi comes with a fee. However, the Club rooms and suites come with free Wi-Fi and a breakfast buffet. Nevertheless, even with a regular room, you still get access to other amenities like the day spa, a fully-equipped fitness center, and the amazing saltwater pool.
For the breakfast buffet, they serve an interesting variety of Japanese, Indian, and Thai cuisine. The Japanese food includes sushi that is made fresh by the chef according to your request. So even if you feel like sashimi in the morning, no problem! You can also make your own juice creations, so you don’t get bored with orange juice every day.
If you’re a gym junkie, this hotel is your palace. With tons of cardio opportunities with their wide array of machines for you to use, you can easily burn off a day’s food adventure and carry on the next day eating all the unique foods that Thailand has to offer! There are also group lessons available and two trainers that are always present to provide you with cold towels and fruits. You can continue your heavy weight lifting even on holiday with their four inclining benches and weights that go up to 35 kilograms (77 pounds).
The Westin Grande Sukhumvit has one of Bangkok’s best-rated Japanese restaurants, Kisso. The food here is delicious and fresh if you’re craving something light yet satisfying enough. If this doesn’t appeal, you can explore the area around the hotel where you are sure to get pretty good local eats.
