for a comfortable stay. Tat is modernity in the sense of the fresh, decadent ambience, because the elegant décor lends a nod to old colonial sophistication rather than cutting edge contemporary. Our well appointed two


bedroom suite overlooked the verdant Embassy gardens and was augmented with ample kitchen facilities that would facilitate a longer stay and we could not complain about the facilities at our disposal. Te ‘pillow menu’ available to us gave an indication of the attention to detail provided by the hotel, with the levels of customer service as accomplished as we have always found throughout the majority of the country, even in budget range accommodation. We took in a river cruise along the Chao Praya and toured some of the historical sites such as the


Grand Palace. As breathtaking as much of it is, the unrelenting heat of the city can be oppressive at times and we were continually tempted back to the sumptuous hotel swimming pool as a result. Overlooking lush gardens and the city skyscape, the swimming pool is the opulent showpiece of the hotel’s leisure facilities, which also includes a fitness centre, with personal trainers on hand. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city we sampled a relaxing lunch at the pool deck bar, but with hundreds of restaurants at our disposal throughout the city, not to mention the bustling night markets, we elected not to make use of the hotel’s own evening gastronomic offer, which includes the modern interpretation of Chinese cuisine at Mandopop and the less formal atmosphere of Café Claire.
