SHANGRI-LA HOTEL BANGKOK, one of the major players in the hotel industry, offers a serene sanctuary amidst a relentlessly evolved digital world at the most perfect location on the banks of the world-famous ancient river, the Chao Phraya.
Offering the best of both worlds, Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok has developed a deep understanding of consumer needs and their 24-hour connected lifestyle, with benefits like Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel and a pocket Wi-Fi for Horizon Club guests who would like to venture outside the premises.
Those who would like to get away from it all may achieve a digital detox by switching all distracting devices off and getting lost in the mesmerizing scenes of the passing parade on the Chao Phraya River – a peaceful way to appreciate the present moment and reconnect with the loved one sitting next to them.
Located on the right side of the Chao Phraya River, just a few minutes away from Bangkok downtown, guests at Shangri-La can hop into the BTS SkyTrain and hop out at the centre of business district in the blink of an eye, and relax in the ambiance of a riverside city-resort while within reach of all the actions in the city.
The hotel has its own pier, so an aquatic adventure is always a major plus when staying by the riverside. Romance is redefined with a dinner cruise on board Shangri-La’s Horizon boat, where the journey takes guests to the Chao Phraya River, where you can see the sights of Bangkok by night and famous landmarks – the Grand Palace and the Temple of Dawn.
Or seek the assistance of the hotel’s concierge team to reserve a long-tail boat to take them on a little adventure – through a canal tour, stop by to pay respect to the world’s largest Buddha image at Wat Pho, or simply learn the lifestyle of the people living in the small over-a-hundred-year-old riverside village.
A riverside night market, Asiatique, is just 20 minutes away by the hotel’s shuttle boat, available with the hotel’s compliments. Shopping, dining and fun are always in the guest’s agenda when in Bangkok. .
