The Peninsula Bangkok

By Chris Boyle

The Thai Suite


Key selling points: This spacious one-bedroom suite has a vast formal living room with sensational river views. The exquisite original Thai artifacts and textured silk fabrics echo the interior of a traditional Bangkok home.

Standout service: During the tsunami, a hotel guest’s relative was vacationing in Phuket, but the frantic guest didn’t know where. The staff called every Phuket hotel, but to no avail, so the hotel hired a helicopter to fly the guest to Phuket where the relieved guest was reunited with his relative. Style: Contemporary Bangkok meets traditional Thai, by Glen Texeira, 1998
