The Peninsula Bangkok

Hotel Review

A luxury oasis with legendary service

 

The hospitality of Peninsula hotels is legendary, as every establishment around the world has that signature attention to detail service like no other.

Along the iconic Chao Phraya River, The Peninsula Bangkok is a true oasis with impeccable service.

 

The Peninsula Bangkok

The hotel consistently ranks as one of the best in the city, as it marries Peninsula’s classic luxury with sophisticated Thai culture.

With its location by the river away from the crowds and traffic, the hotel provides boats for guests and visitors. The quality of the boats is a standout that only Mandarin Oriental Bangkok across the water can compete.

The design of the property and rooms are full of traditional Thai influences, with modern technology present in the entertainment hub and master control switch.

Daily breakfast in the River Cafe & Terrace is quite the spread with indoor and outdoor buffet stations. It is worth waking up for every morning.

 

The Peninsula Academy and more

The hotel also provides activities to fill every moment of your stay. The Peninsula Academy offers cooking classes, history and cultural tours, Thai boxing classes, an eco-adventure with animals and nature, sunset cruises along the river, and even a helicopter ride to the wine country.

The Peninsula Bangkok defines luxury in its facilities, comfort, and its detailed service.

Breakfast with a view. After arriving from a long-haul flight, my parents and I were greeted with a tray of pastries, jams, and juice to welcome us into our suite and refresh us from the journey. Details in service like this are why we keep coming back to this hotel.
