137 Pillars Suites and Residences in Bangkok had a lot to live up to, following in the footsteps of its multi-awarding winning sister hotel in Chiang Mai. And it does so in stunning fashion.
With 34 luxurious suites and 176 serviced residences, this hotel really stands out in a city blessed with its fair share of 5 star hotels.
The suites and residences have contemporary décor with all the modern conveniences you need for a trouble-free and comfortable stay. We stayed in a gorgeous 95 square metre Ayutthaya suite, named for the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Siam. This suite, as with all the others, offers the amenities you’d expect from a luxury hotel today – wide screen TV, Bose sound system and USB charging ports – but comes with some extras you don’t expect and a distinct character. As well as a walk in wardrobe, circular bathtub and exquisite toiletries, the suite had a pantry with maxi bar and wine fridge. Also, in one of the most appealing aspects of the suite, there is a balcony with day bed for two and a signature 137 Pillars rocking chair.
Suite guests have exclusive access to the Leonowens club lounge, a comfortable, quiet space with attentive and friendly staff. The lounge serves an excellent breakfast as well as afternoon tea and evening cocktails and is an ideal spot to unwind after sight-seeing or a busy day of meetings.
The hotel has two stunning infinity swimming pools. The pool on the 27th floor sits adjacent to the excellent gym and there is also a huge Jacuzzi pool. The rooftop infinity pool is reserved for suite guests only and offers 360 degree views of the Bangkok skyline as well as a rooftop bar and cabanas.
If you want a change from large, chain hotels and prefer a smaller property with personalised service, beautiful décor and excellent amenities, then 137 Pillars House Suites and Residences Bangkok is sure to fit the bill.
