This is our Hotel Spotlight ,
where we have an inside look at places that wowed us … or those we are eager to explore
What an oasis in a crazy, vibrant city! You journey down a long road, under a canopy of Banyan trees, arriving to a chic lobby and minimalist-but-expansive rooms with exceptional views of a sparkling swimming pool. From the healthy menu pages at breakfast to the in-room massages to the acclaimed Michelin-star restaurant on property, it’s hard to even leave this joint to explore the city.
Number of Rooms: 169, including 9 suites
Fun Fact: The staff will put together a boutique shopping excursion for you. You’re only minutes, by Tuk Tuk, from some of the city’s best retailers.
Most Jaw-Dropping Moment: Nahm. This Michelin-Star restaurant serves both lunch and dinner. It’s landed on Asia’s Top Restaurant lists for years. We particularly loved the Pigeon Soup and the whole fish. A little daunting in ordering but we ended up eating two orders! Insider tip : If you head to Nahm at lunch, you’ll find the same delicious dinner courses, at a slightly lower price. It also gives you the opportunity to say “screw it,” and just head back again for dinner.
