Located in the city’s main boulevard, Banyan Tree impresses with its list of highest this, that and the other. It boasts of the highest bar in Asia, is located in a customised high rise and is possibly the most extravagant spa hotel in all of Bangkok. 

In the warmly lit lobby, a lady garbed in cheerful silk playing a khim (Thai dulcimer) makes an impression.

There are 327 keys that open doors to rooms and suites urbanely designed in natural wood and silk. Floor to ceiling windows flood the rooms with natural light and offer whimsical views of the city. A two-bedroom suite which comes with a hall, study, kitchenette and master bedroom with a walk-in closet works well for a family. For both private parties and business events, there's the Banyan Ballroom. A state of-the-art business centre allows library access and secretarial services. 

Head to Saffron to taste nouvelle Thai dishes. Vertigo on the 60th floor has an arched ceiling, and offers an awe-inspiring roof-top bar experience with panoramic views of the Capital city laid below. From top-notch dimsums at Bai Yun, and fresh seafood at Pier 59, to the tranquillity of authentic Japanese with sushi, yakitori and teppanyaki stations at Taihei, Banyan Tree  provides an uplifting experience.

When you do venture out, it should be no further than cruising the Chao Phraya River on the 38m-long vessel Saffron. By late evening, the clusters of twinkling lights are mesmerising enough to make departure difficult.

It’s impossible to sum up the Banyan Tree experience and not mention their award winning Spa offering three grand and four deluxe spa rooms, each furnished with a jet pool, shower, and steam facilities. If you are a health freak, there’s a Health Club and the shopaholics can head to the gallery for local handicrafts.
