Wherever St. Regis hotels are established in the world, there is an expectation of impeccable service and timeless tradition. And, of course, butler service. The St. Regis Bangkok, located in the bustling heart of Thailand's capital city, takes this further with a gobsmacking array of options to pamper and indulge. 

From the hotel's Elemis spa to the panoramic views of the lounge and pool area, a business centre for executive travellers and Sky Lounge cocktail bar for holidaymakers, St. Regis Bangkok is designed to be an oasis suspended above the rigours of Thailand's metropole.

That's not to say one must keep their heads down in the – almost too-comfortable – suites. Led by head concierge Atipol Soonthornsingh, who is a member of Les Clefs d'Or and a Golden Key Holder, the St. Regis Bangkok's multilingual concierge team is known for its attention to detail and intimate knowledge of the city sights. 

These include the upscale boutiques and restaurants of the Pathum Wan District on your doorsteps, or a short BTS Skytrain excursion to Siam Square and its myriad malls and designer stores. The city's cultural centre is just 20 minutes away, including the colourful Erawan Shrine and historic Grand Palace. >>

But if you don't feel like travelling so far, take a culinary tour of Thailand – and the globe – from the comfort of your hotel, which boasts eight restaurants and bars serving gourmet cuisine from contemporary Japanese gastronomy in Zuma, to authentic modern Italian at Jojo. In fact, the stylish Italian restaurant is one of the most fashionable – and romantic – fine dining spots in the city. 

For dining with a view, the 12th floor Viu offers champagne breakfasts to St. Regis' famous Sunday Brunch, before transforming into an elegant fusion restaurant for the evening. Afternoon tea – a staple of the St. Regis brand – is equally important to the team here, and bespoke macarons abound. 

For fitness-focused guests, fear not – the dining options can still be enjoyed with a healthy twist, thanks to St. Regis Bangkok's Art of Wellbring programme. After a thorough assessment using Accuniq body composition analyser, the hotel's team of culinary and fitness expert can tailor guests' experience to include health-conscious dining, exercise regimes and rejuvenating spa treatments – perfect for the new you this new year.
