One of the many jewels of our last visit to Bangkok, was without a doubt our two nights stay at the picture perfect The Siam Hotel. A hotel which holds a very special feeling to me, having seen it evolve from day one till final completion and full operation, and know many of the people involved in the project. But still I went through our stay with a very critic and avid eye, true to my commitment to all of you my followers. The first question I think raises when you even think to stay at this property, is WHY should I stay at a hotel located so far from the traditional attractions and happening of Bangkok. And to my surprise this exact question is the one the management use as their strength, The Siam brings to you a different Bangkok. Serene, lush in natural beauty, yet quite simple are the nouns to describe this hotel.
The Siam Hotel Bangkok almost ready to open | Bangkok, Thailand | The soon to be open The Siam Hotel Bangkok is almost finished and ready to welcome their first guests in less than 63 days. Yesterday Jason Friedman – General Manager, welcomed me and a selected group of the LGBT Press and Travel Professionals to show us this stunning hotel which will change the concept of luxury and hospitality in Bangkok. Rooms will range from USD 400 on. The Siam Hotel is the first hotel in Asia to be signed by Virtuoso previous opening, mostly due to Friedman’s successful career as a hotelier and administration of previous leading properties, such as the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle.
Four Season Tented Camp Thailand | Golden Triangle, Thailand | If there was a hotel I visited in 2011, that went above and beyond any expectations, was the Four Seasons Tented Camp at Golden Triangle in the northern region of Thailand, right on the border with Lao and Burma. How about combining the best of Four Seasons signature luxury, style and customer service, with the exuberant beauty of the bamboo jungles of Chiang Rai province in the outdoors, surrounded by a local Elephants camp, Burmese chanting monks in the mornings and serene waters of the Mekong River. How would I define and summarize this experience, simply like this… train to become a Mahout, live with the elephants in full luxury, enjoy all-inclusive adventures, spoil yourself at their full service outdoor spa and dine like a king or queen.
