It was a long day without proper sleep and attending a friend’s wedding. Once the wedding ceremony was finished, Mrs. White and I headed back to Radisson Suites Bangkok Sukhumvit where I stayed for a short sleep, checked out from the hotel and headed to the St. Regis Bangkok.
Once again, we are back at our favorite hotel in Bangkok. You can check my previous review of the St. Regis Bangkok to check out the general facilities and experiences.
Booking The St. Regis Bangkok:
We booked 3 paid nights at the St. Regis Bangkok through the Marriott STARS program from my friend “TheLuxuryTraveller” to receive US$200 credit benefits. We booked the standard Guest Room hoping to get a suite upgrade on arrival but unfortunately, someone booked the entire suite in the hotel a day before our arrival so we weren’t able to score an upgrade this time.
Checking-In at The St. Regis Bangkok:
Unlike our last visit, as travel restrictions ease around the world, there were a lot of locals and tourists staying at the hotel. As I did online check-in through the Marriott Bonvoy app before arrival, our process took less than 10 minutes and we were assigned to room 1804. Similar to our last stay, as a Bonvoy Titanium elite, we received 2 pieces of complimentary garment pressing per day but the complimentary laundry was still not offered.
The St. Regis Bangkok Guest Room Golf Course View:
I will go over a brief description of the “Guest Rooms” first. There are currently six types of Guest rooms available at the St. Regis Bangkok. Each of the six room types is similar featuring a separate rainforest shower and a bathtub but the only difference is the type of bed in the room and the view. This makes the size and layout of the Guest Rooms vary by where it is positioned within the hotel.
Our Guest Room with Golf Course View directly overlooked the famous Royal Bangkok Sports Club and the city. It faces towards the west and has considerable sunlight shining during the day making the room brighter and a great sunset view in the afternoon. On one side, welcome fruits and macarons were prepared prior to our arrival at the room.
In addition to the views, the room also offers one of the largest Guest Room types with 53sqm or 570sqft in size. Due to the hallway by the entrance and the bathroom, the room might feel narrow but compared to other standard rooms in Bangkok, it is much more spacious and luxurious.
The St. Regis Bangkok VIU Restaurant:
Breakfast was served at VIU restaurant as usual. But this time, it was offered in full buffet-style in comparison to our past stay which had semi-buffet plus a la carte options. A separate a la carte menu is still offered for those who prefer not to have the buffet.
We used the US$200 credit we receive by booking from STARS Program on a dinner daily. Spending nearly US$100 for dinner per day, we had an abundant amount of high-quality food at the restaurant. If you love seafood, the seafood platter at VIU restaurant is a must-try.
The St. Regis Bangkok Bar:
Every evening from 5 pm to 10 pm, we went to the St. Regis Bar in the lobby to enjoy our complimentary drinks and small bites. I think the Elite member’s menu is a favorable offer from the St. Regis Bangkok to Bonvoy elites.
We were coming back a little late to the hotel on the first day, so I contacted the butler service if they could deliver the drinks to the room before the bar closes. The butler team gladly accepted my request and when we arrive at the room, drinks and snacks were ready on the coffee table waiting for us.
Even though we did not get a suite upgrade on this visit, staying in the Guest Room was more than a satisfying experience. With amazing St. Regis butlers around the clock fulfilling our service requests throughout the stay. Moreover, the US$200 credit for dining was an excellent benefit in addition to our stay.
The St. Regis is still considered our preferred hotel in Bangkok with convenient access to public transportation and attractions nearby. Let me know your choice of hotel in Thailand, maybe next time I visit, I’ll try out different properties.
