The Banyan Tree Bangkok celebrated its 20th birthday in 2016, but with its clutch of fabulous bars and restaurants, as well as a smart new refurbishment, it remains at the top of its game. The suite-sized rooms, each with its own living space and nimble bathroom, am perched between the 15th to 58th floors, meaning they come with spectacular views.
There’s also a rooftop pool, a gym and a cavernous spa. But it’s the 61st floor Vertigo restaurant and Moon Bar that will set pulses lacing. Knocking back a cocktail here as you gaze over Bangkok’s skyscrapers is a heart-stopping experience.
