Sorry it has taken me so long to write this review. My husband and I stayed at this wonderful hotel in August 2011 for five nights in a deluxe river balcony room in the newer wing.
What can I say other then everything from the check in to the check out was perfect. The staff were all so polite and friendly, the room had the most amazing view of the river, the bathroom amenties were stocked up every day, and the bed turned down with a new basket of delicious fruit to eat. The pool area was superb, the friendly staff would quickly give us free water and towels and were always very quick with drink orders.
We had the buffet breakfast daily in the Next2 restaurant where they served a huge display of options, my favourites were the daily special shangri la smoothies and the flavoursome sorbets. My husband would get his free Bangkok newspaper and sit by the river and eat his freshly made omelette, divine relaxation from our busy jobs. The manager at breakfast times was so helpful!
We went on the Shangri la's horizon boat cruise for dinner. The seafood and sushi were very tasty and sitting outside on the deck, with all the Bangkok city lights was very romantic. I highly recommend this boat trip. Shangri la is so close to the river ferries to go see the Grand Palace or to use the sky train to go shopping. The main foyer had the most amazing female singer with a splendid voice, we would sit and listen for hours sipping on cocktails:) Lastly, the gym facilities at this hotel are awesome, very large and giving out free bananas and water. Overall, we cant wait to go back, 5 star luxury at its best!
