BEST Western’s hotel in Bangkok may have been designed with visiting executives in mind – its close proximity to the airport and impressive range of meetings facilities are testament of that – but it’s not all fussy formalities here; the spacious, comfortable rooms, and a long list modern amenities, ensure it’s a hub of relaxation too.
Ensuring guests can mix business with pleasure in style are highlights such as Bua Chompoo, an all-day-dining restaurant open 24 hours a day and serving an assortment of buffets and a la carte menus; Red Brown, located in the main lobby, which operates as a coffee shop by day, and a trendy cocktail bar with live music by night; Pool Bar, offering gourmet snacks and refreshing cocktails right next to the outdoor pool; and Ma Spa, which provides signature massages such as Jet Lag Recovery and Traditional Thai Massage alongside many other treatments, all conducted by experienced therapists in a tranquil atmosphere. There’s also a sauna and fully-equipped fitness center to enjoy.
The hotel’s accommodations are divided into four categories, including Deluxe, Premier Room, Premier Suites, and Amaranth Suites. All are centrally air conditioned and feature IDD telephone, a large work area with complimentary WiFi, separate Bathroom with Bath or Shower, LCD TV, in-room safe, in-room tea/coffee making facility, hair dryer and minibar.
When it comes down to business, the hotel’s Amaranth Ballroom ranges from a capacity of 450 (banquet or classroom style) to 600 theatre.
