When we landed at the airport hotel pick-up was waiting to receive us. The drive to the hotel was around 30 minutes. The driver was pleasant and spoke good English.
The building from distance looks impressive and modern. Its right next to Tesco Lotus that has restaurants, food court and Swensens too. Lobby was massive and very impressive. We arrived around 10.30 am, since the room wasn’t ready Reception staff suggested that we should do some sightseeing and guided us with a map and must see places. We were offered a welcome drink and all the check-in formalities were completed.
When we returned around 4 pm, our room was ready. They had allocated us a corner room on the 14th floor which had a fabulous view. The room was nice, clean, functional with all the amenities that one would expect. We had a fruit platter with a traditional welcome letter from GM. The bathroom was clean and functional with all the amenities.
Breakfast was the best that we ever had at any of the regional hotels in Thailand, the spread was wide, traditional local fare, continental with a choice traditional tea and coffee too. There was variation in the choice on the second day. The staff here was also very courteous, helpful and had working knowledge of English.
On the second day we decided to enjoy cocktails at the lobby bar. The best was the musician who was not only versatile on various instruments such as Piano, Violin, key board but also had a lovely voice. He played songs of our choice. When we learnt that he was 77, that was a wow factor.
Overall a fantastic experience.
