- A few things -
As you pull onto the long driveway lined with water features and
flowering plants, you feel as though you’re arriving to a proper resort rather
than a hotel within the city. Then you’re greeted by sincere faces of folks
donned in Thai silk who escort you as they wheel your luggage to your suite.
Comfortable beds, spacious baths, picturesque views, quiet nights. An elaborate
Spa and the famed Chocolate Buffet in the Salon seal this hotel into my little
Black Book of the best hotels in the world.
