Le Méridien Bangkok

The next time you are visiting Bangkok city looking for accomodation, you have to check out Le Méridien Bangkok in the Silom commercial district. Whether looking for a comfy stay or a kick-ass swanky art hotel - this place ticks all the wants you probably would like to experience on a vacation.



For a start, I highly recommend you check yourself into the exclusive Circular Room that comes with an iconic round bed. Funny enough, it may seem weird and a little odd but trust me when I say it's pretty comfortable. There's also a pillow menu to maximise your comfort level, in case you were wondering.



The Circlar Room also comes with a huge sofa that gives you a pretty good view of the city. As night falls, all you can expect is a perfect view of city light - perfect for unwinding and doing nothing with a glass or two.




My favourite part of the room has got to be the bathroom that's marble-designed and comes fitted with a bathtub so you could laze around and do nothing after a long day of shopping and touring around. It also comes with a rain shower and Malin + Geoetz bath amenities to finish off that luxe bathroom experience.


When I first shared on my insta-stories about checking-in, everyone raved about the breakfast spread at Le Méridien. Kind of bummed that I didn't get the experience it the first morning (due to the extra comfy bed), I made an effort to head down earlier the next day before checking-out, only to realise how much I was missing out on.

Think a full spread of breakfast items from fresh juices (juiced using fresh fruits on the spot for you, by the way), a Japanese counter with Japanese breakfast items, fresh pastries and many more stuff you wouldn't expect to be seeing on a typical hotel breakfast spread. What wow-ed me honestly, was the fact that they bothered to customise my Instagram handle on my latte!



On the sixth floor of the hotel, you can opt for a workout at their fitness centre or take a splash in the pool. The fully equipped Technogym overlooks the pool that has a perfect Instagram-worthy background. There's also an option to have a cocktail or two at their poolside bar, Plunge.



Of course, I had to try out their award-winning spa before leaving the place. The Spa by Le Méridien boasts many treatments and I highly recommend that Hot Lava Stone Massage that uses heated volcanic stones and warm aromatic oil for a healing and stress-relieving experience.

As I mentioned earlier, Le Méridien Bangkok ticks almost all (if not all) of what you would expect of a 5-star luxury hotel when on a vacation. They are also a stone throw away from popular tourist attractions such as the Patpong Night Market and of course nightlife is aplenty just across the road. Now, if someone would - please fast-forward my life and book me my next stay with them.
