A Few Reasons to Stay at The Peninsula Bangkok Hotel

March 24, 2016

In a city where traffic clogs roadways and drivers spend over 35% of travel time in idle, the Peninsula Bangkok’s prime location on the Chao Phraya River isn’t only stunning; it is super convenient. Hire a long-tail boat to see the sights from the hotel’s riverfront dock, or ride one of the complimentary hotel shuttle boats to a designated stop along the river and avoid the traffic.

In addition to the riverfront location, stunning views, and the services and amenities you would expect from an award-winning luxury hotel, here are a few more reasons why you should stay at The Peninsula Bangkok hotel.


A series of connected pools lead from the spa to the rivers edge and a front row seat to the unforgettable sights and sounds of the Chao Phraya River. Recline in a comfy lounge chair and watch the action or chill out in one of 12 traditional Thai salas. Food and drinks are available throughout the day.

Enjoy a traditional Thai coffee with Carnation milk – it ‘s hard to stop at one, tropical fruit, authentic Thai dishes, and more conventional breakfast offerings at one of the best breakfast buffets I have experienced.
