Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok Review 2018 - The Pinnacle of the Thai Luxury Experience

Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok |

The Thaifoodies team is back with our series reviewing the rooms of some of Bangkok's most popular hotels. In this installment we review room #1928 a Deluxe River View Room (9,600 Baht/$234) per night at the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok Bangkok.

All pictures and video in this post were taken by the Thaifoodies team on site at the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok. The Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok is a 802 room, 5-Star property located in old Bangkok on the mighty Chao Phraya River.

The Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok was one of the first luxury hotels in Bangkok and represents the height of sophisticated, Thai-style charm, and service. There are many 5-star hotels along Sukhumvit road that are amazing properties but there is something special about the riverside charm of the Shangri-La that embraces the unique Thai experience that will create memories that last a lifetime.

Check out our video review of Deluxe Riverview Room #1928 below:


From the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok Website

A tropical city resort

by the magnificent River of Kings

Along the vibrant Chao Phraya River lies a unique, attractive landmark that is a fascinating destination - Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok. Your extraordinary experience starts with a smooth 35-minute ride in our chauffeur driven hybrid limousine from Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Upon arrival at the hotel, you are greeted by a porter with a warm smile and unexpected gracious Thai hospitality. The hotel's spacious lobby, luxurious rooms and suites, which offer a mix of traditional Thai style and modern comfort, and spacious balconies create a memorable “home away from home” experience.

You admire the sunrise and fantastic view of the Chao Phraya River and rest by a stunning free-form outdoor swimming pool set amid lush tropical greenery after breakfast. You close your eyes gently while thinking about all the day’s wonderful activities. Shopping in shiny malls, charming boutiques and open-air markets around town or visiting the Grand Palace and other cultural landmarks located along the river is easy with the BTS skytrain or a river taxi.

After a long wonderful day, you head back to the hotel to restore balance and harmony to your mind and body in the calm surroundings of CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La. At dinner, you savour favourite Thai dishes in a traditional Thai teak pavilion or on a veranda facing the river at the hotel’s Salathip Restaurant while enjoying graceful classical dance performances. Alternatively, you can enjoy an international buffet and great views by night on the Horizon Cruise.

Impeccable service and personal attention from a caring team complement the hotel's state-of-the-art facilities perfectly and are the hallmarks for any stay at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok.
