THAILAND – The W Hotel Bangkok, a hidden gem unveiled

The W Hotel Bangkok is a contemporary, design-led lifestyle hotel in the heart of Bangkok’s bustling commercial district. During my recent trip in Bangkok I had the opportunity to stay at the W Hotel Bangkok which I do not regret. The stay was full of Wow moments from entering, the room, the restaurants to the stylized pool. Did you know you can even make your own cocktail in the room? A luxury lifestyle hotel everyone should stay at when in Bangkok.

W Hotel Bangkok

The design of W Hotel Bangkok embodies the capital’s fusion of past and present. It combines past and present into something new. The old mansion next to the hotel tower is old style compared to the outside of the tower. In the hotel you will find also details connecting to the past. Various artworks represent Thailand’s most famous art. What about a wall made out of tuk-tuk lights? Murals made like tattoo art in shiny mother of pearl colors found also in temples. Every detail fits together making it a very pleasant place to stay.


The hotel has direct access to the sky train in Bangkok taking you anywhere in the city in a short period of time. The hotel offers also the unique Whatever/Whenever service which means you can get anything at any time as long as it’s legal. Just ask and they will get it done!

The rooms at W Hotel Bangkok

Every single room at W Hotel Bangkok has been designed with the international jet-setter in mind. Everything is state of the art and the tablet to control everything is so cool! Adjust your lights, air-conditioning and more with a touch on the tablet. The rooms are enhanced with color through colorful glass walls, lighting and customized furniture making you say WOW for sure. The rooms are large for a standard room with lots of space to relax. I can see from the interior the architect has put a lot of effort in the design to have you relax but if you need more space then go for the 4 room (extreme) WOW suite 🙂 It’s unique!

In the room you will find two muay Thai boxing gloves for some spontaneous selfies. Pretty cool! If you visit Thailand a boxing game is a must-see too. You can also make your own cocktail in the room! How cool is that? Just follow the steps and mix it: Woohito time!

Facilities at W Hotel Bangkok

The W Hotel Bangkok has all the facilities you expect from a luxury hotel. A gym with all the latest equipment a pool shaped in the shape of an eyeball. You will find twinkling underwater lights and even music! The pool bar serves great all day snacks and the best cocktails. The Spa at the W Hotel Bangkok is called AWAY Spa which features everything you might expect from a Spa . Unfortunately I did not have the time to enjoy the Spa myself as I spend too much time at the pool. Will do that next time!


Dining & Drinking at W Hotel Bangkok

Have a morning coffee or a pre-dinner cocktail at the W Terrace with view over the old Russian embassy. This old building is part of the W Hotel Bangkok and currently being transformed into restaurants, bars and shops. At the Kitchen table restaurant local and international cuisine is served, great for any jet-setter with an adventures palate. One signature dish is your own burger! Check on a form the kind of bread, beef and the various toppings and create your own burger. A must to do! The Woobar at the ground floor has daily DJ’s spinning the latest trendy beats. Enjoy here one of the latest cocktails on offer from the W mixologists. Dance or just relax: you will enjoy!


The W Hotel Bangkok is the kind of hotel I like. It’s a great place with a unique blend of old and modern styles. Trendy but also authentic. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds and lots of technology. For sure I will come back to this hotel some day in the future when I will be in Bangkok again! I can recommend this hotel to everyone coming to Bangkok for a city trip or during a Thailand road trip.

  1. Hoi Chris, ik ken het hotel. Wij hebben familie die wonen aan de overkant in Ascott. Wij verblijven daar ieder jaar in januari. Vanuit onze slaapkamer hebben wij dan een goed uitzicht op het zwembad. Om 08.00 uur liggen er vaak al mensen op de dubbele ligbedden
