An Iconic Hotel in Bangkok Famous for a collection of rooftop restaurants and barsAndrew M: “Most probably the best hotel we have ever had the chance to stay in!
I requested their help to make our last night in Bangkok special for my wife and they went the extra mile and made us feel like royalty!! We got upgraded to a suite that was way too humongous for the both of us. It has incredible views on the Chao Phraya River. We enjoy the magnificent outlook of the city on the Skybar as well! Breakfast was so diverse. You had a buffet with all sorts of fruits, juice, pastries, tea, coffee, and even chefs cooking pretty much whatever you ask them too! My wife and I are great travelers and cruisers, we have been all around the world (literally) and seriously Lebua is still our favorite hotel!”
When it comes to hotels, what defines luxury? What makes for a pleasant stay? At lebua, they have our own ideas. Firstly space—something so luxurious, and all too rare. Not at lebua, every room is a suite, with a separate bedroom, bathroom, living area, and kitchenette.
And second, simplicity—an elegant blank slate of a suite, with everything you need to stay comfortable and in style. They seem to be onto something because the guests have voted them #1 in Thailand in the Conde Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards. Their vote of confidence tells us that they appreciate the same things we do: good beds with luxurious linens, impeccable service, and plenty of room to breathe.
And of course those views. All suites have private balconies from which to appreciate sweeping city vistas.
They take care of the details, big and small, leaving you to experience the best of Bangkok—both out on the town and within State Tower itself. The city’s best shopping and sightseeing are just a tuk-tuk, Skytrain, or boat ride away. And its best dining and bar-hopping? Even better—it’s all just floors from your hotel room door.
