In the steaming, electric atmosphere of Bangkok, one of the world’s most exciting cities, The Peninsula Hotel is a supercool, sophisticated refuge.
Reaching up 37 floors, its panoramic views are the most breathtaking in the city.
All the rooms in the W-shaped glass and steel tower overlook the meandering Chao Praya River and awesome sprawl of buildings and temples beneath.
The rooms are luxuriously decorated and state of the art, and public areas are seamlessly stylish and efficient with the gracious staff always on hand.
There are four themed restaurants, a three-tier pool and the best Spa in Bangkok.
If you want to stay on the river, which is always my choice, The Peninsula is the 21st century option.
When celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz captured the Peninsula Bangkok it was the staff she chose to feature. The famed Peninsula bellboys in their white suits, gloves and caps who are even on hand to walk the guests poodles, with a smile, of course.
