Overview

Serene tropical gardens, gorgeous views over the Chao Phraya River and a signature spa make the Shangri-La one of the most relaxing places to stay in hectic Bangkok. This hotel combines attentive, warm Thai service and a luxury environment with an excellent location from which to explore Thailand's electric capital city, with many of its iconic attractions just a stones throw away.

The rooms and suites are distinctly modern, with all the hi-tech amenities you could ask for, plush beds and sleek bathrooms with premium Shangri-La toiletries, while nodding to centuries-old Thai heritage with touches of tradition in the furniture and decor. There may be over 800 rooms and suites, but they have an air of tranquility, providing a haven from the hustle and bustle of the city outside, and you can take in lovely city and river views from large windows and private balconies. The irresistible variety of cuisine on offer at several restaurants ranges from gourmet Thai specialties to international fare, so there is something for everyone, as well as numerous restaurants nearby. Try the exceptional Cantonese cuisine at Shang Palace, while at the Salathip restaurant, you can dine on a traditional Thai pavilion by the riverside on a balmy evening as you are entertained by Thai dancing.

Those with a sweet tooth, young and old, will love the Chocolate Boutique, where you can treat yourself to signature chocolate cakes and creative chocolate-themed drinks. If you fancy a drink, there are a number of bars to choose from - we recommend a pre or post-dinner cocktail at the elegant Long Bar, which is something of a local hot spot. With the city on your doorstep, you have Bangkok at your feet, and you can also head out on the water: enjoy a cruise on the hotel's own luxury cruise boat, tucking into a gourmet international buffet as you meander along the Chao Phraya River. This is a lovely way to take in the glittering sights on its banks, such as the Grand Palace and Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn).

After a days sightseeing, pamper yourself in the spa, whose blissful treatments are inspired by traditional techniques, relax in a Jacuzzi or cool off with a swim in the outdoor pool, surrounded by tropical greenery. If you prefer something more active, have a workout with a game of tennis or head to the fitness center and dance studio.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
