Mandarin Oriental: in the footsteps of Graham Greene and Elizabeth Taylor


The oldest hotel in the city, and one of the most beautiful palace hotels in the world, has retained its period charm in a setting of unparalleled luxury.

Unparalleled and unrivalled… Subject to regular renovations, the oldest hotel in Bangkok is not only the finest hotel in the city, it is one of the jewels of its heritage, on par with its greatest temples and palaces.

Like Graham Greene, Joseph Conrad, and Elizabeth Taylor, every habitué has his or her favourite spot: the terraces, with their enchanting views of the river; the Bamboo Bar, with its colonial trading-post atmosphere, cigar tastings, and jazz concerts; the English snacks and profusion of baked goods in the Author's Lounge; the incredible pool, and the most beautiful spa in town.

Rooms are full of refinement, particularly in the Authors' Wing, where you're surrounded by the memories and traces of illustrious predecessors. The service is exemplary pure discretion and efficiency. Then there are the restaurants… This is luxury at its purest.
