Overview Facilities Map Destination

A unique hideaway sitting on the eastern bank of the Chao Phraya River, the five-star Sala Rattanakosin consists of 17 stylish guest and feature rooms, most of which boast stunning river views.

Regarded as one of the city's leading luxury hotels, this resort enjoys mesmerising views of the Temple of Dawn. If you're looking for luxury accommodation that combines ancient treasures with contemporary living, look no further than the Sala Rattakosin.

Enjoy fine dining with river vistas, sumptuous spa treatments and chic, minimalistic rooms during your stay. By far the hotel's best feature has to be the stunning views from the rooftop terrace and bar.

Located in the Old Town, the Sala is within easy reach of the city's most iconic attractions such as the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Temple of the Reclining Buddha.

The prime location of this five-star Bangkok hotel makes it a great choice for those wanting to be in close proximity to the city's main visitor attractions. If you're looking to experience authentic Thai cuisine, the hotel's renowned restaurant serves signature dishes.

Sport, games & activities

An ideal base from which to explore Bangkok's many tourist attractions, the Sala is located in central Bangkok, within walking distance of Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Other nearby points of interest include the Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

From guided walking tours with a local expert to adventurous do-it-yourself bicycle tours with a freshly packed picnic basket from the kitchen, the Sala staff can arrange an exciting and memorable day to suit your personal wishes and requirements.

A real feast for the senses awaits you on holidays to Bangkok. Ancient truly meets modern as skyscrapers tower over golden temples and neon-lit streets rub shoulders with market stalls. Traditional tuk tuks thread their way through the traffic-packed streets, while the super-fast Sky Train is the swiftest way to get from A to B.

Take your pick from a glut of cultural sites, including glittering palaces and the famous Reclining Buddha. The shopping's top notch, with everything from floating markets and food stalls to designer stores and expert tailors.

Holidays in Bangkok are the perfect gateway to a stay in the Land of Smiles.
The nation's capital is the perfect place to soak up this country's unique atmosphere and customs.

The national cuisine is famously fragrant and tasty and you'll find plenty of places to try it in the capital. As you'd expect from a modern metropolis, the bars and nightclubs are great – but don't miss out on a few local traditions: Thai boxing matches, theatre performances and colourful cabarets.

Many Bangkok holidays are followed by a stay in one of Thailand's beautiful beach resorts – ask us about our tailor-made, multi-centre options.

Things to do

There's never a dull moment on holiday in Bangkok. The plentiful shops, malls and markets mean there are bargains to be had on everything from designer clothes and accessories to tailor-made outfits and local crafts. Chatuchak weekend market and the floating market at Damnoen Saduwak are must-visits. The place is packed with temples, monuments and palaces, meaning those in search of cultural and historical fixes aren't disappointed. But the Thai capital has been quick to catch on to modern trends for things to do: ice skating, segway rides, first class golf courses and cookery classes are all on offer. For great days out, try Jim Thompson's house, the Bridge over the River Kwai, Safari World, Siam Ocean World and the Dusit Zoo.

Food & drink

The signature cuisine in Bangkok is tasty Thai fare – with spicy Thai curry, Pad Thai noodles and Gang Pet curry featuring on menus. Dining at the street stalls is hot and steamy, but deep fried insects are not everyone's cup of tea. Locally brewed Singha beer, Mekong whiskey and Samsong run are popular drink choices as is coconut milk, sipped straight from the shell.

Health & entry requirements

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct travel insurance and vaccinations and / or special medication for your destination. Please consult your GP for advice at least one month ahead of travel. It is essential that you meet the visa and passport requirements for your chosen destination. Visit the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (http://www.fco.gov.uk) website for up to date entry requirements listed by country.
