5 luxurious Bangkok hotels to stay in

137 Pillars Suites and Residences, Bangkok

Located in the fashionable Thonglor district, this exclusive hideaway has 34 spacious suites. The striking rooftop infinity pool might form the backdrop for the money shot at 137 Pillar Suites and Residences, but it’s the Jack Bain’s Bar at the suite-only property that bids one to linger, what with top-shelf whiskies, an extensive collection of coveted Old World wines, and a flight of cigars from Cuba and Honduras. Butler service, private wine cellars, and generous balconies go beyond the checklist of what we’ve come to expect from a five-star offering. Plus, access to a fast-track immigration track at the airport means you’ll arrive in the heart of Bangkok even before other travellers flying Business – certainly gives one reason to keep the tab running at this boutique hotel.
