5 Best Boutique Hotels in Bangkok

boutique hotels bangkok

Bangkok is one of the best cities to experience luxury boutique hotels. Not only do they have some of the best hotels in the world, they also offer them at a fraction of the price that they are in the west. So if you're looking for the perfect place to start your honeymoon or anniversary, you've come to the right place! I spent three whole months testing out Bangkok luxury hotels to find the best ones for you. So, without further ado, here are the 5 best boutique hotel in Bangkok:

Boutique Hotels in Bangkok

1. Metropole Bangkok ☆☆☆☆

metropole review

Metropole Bangkok is so much more than 'just' a Bangkok luxury hotel. The Metropole Bangkok is an apartment-hotel hybrid: they offer all the conveniences and luxuries of a hotel, with the freedom, privacy and flexibility of an apartment. Thus the rooms at the Metropole Bangkok are equipped with all the musts you'd expect from a boutique hotel Bangkok: gigantic, comfortable bed; spacious bathroom with modern Japanese features; some of the fastest wifi in Bangkok and gorgeous decor.

But it goes beyond that, guests of the Metropole  Bangkok also have the option to cook for themselves - rooms come with fully equipped kitchens. Whilst I love eating out whilst travelling, I do find that I miss cooking when staying at boutique hotels Bangkok, which is why I think it's awesome that the Metropole Bangkok offers you the best of both worlds.

Other features include a beautiful outdoor pool, sauna, delicious breakfast and easy access to the spa next door (we HIGHLY recommend the three-hour massage). The decor of the entire hotel is absolutely stunning, inspired by the Thai Golden age, it screams elegance and class. [Read full Metropole Bangkok Review.] From £62 per night, check availability.

2. Oriental Residence Bangkok ☆☆☆☆☆

Oriental Residence Bangkok is iconic, traditional and luxurious. It's easily one of the most beautiful and best hotels in Bangkok. Oriental Residence is another Bangkok luxury hotel / apartment hybrid, aka rooms come equipped with their own kitchens. And what rooms! With king-sized beds, humongous shower and bath, underfloor heating, and beautiful welcome of flowers and macarons on arrival - you won't ever want to leave.

If you do make it out of your room, you'll find a delicious buffet breakfast waiting for you, along with a games room and one of the best swimming pools in Bangkok - it's both an indoor and an outdoor pool offering you the best of both worlds! Sunbathe in the pool or chill out in the shade, the choice is up to you. What I especially liked about the Oriental Residence Bangkok were all the little touches that they do to make you truly feel at home. For example, in the bathrooms instead of the usual tiny toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion etc), they provide you with full-sized bottles. It's things like this that make me feel like I could easily live there full time! [Read full Oriental Residence Bangkok Review.] From £147 per night, check availability.

3. Amari Watergate Bangkok ☆☆☆☆☆

The Amari Watergate Bangkok is a five-star boutique hotel  Bangkok with a lot to offer. Rooms are complete with beds large enough to sleep width-ways on, decked out bathrooms and a beautiful workspace. I had some of the best nights' sleep of my life here. Where Amari Watergate Bangkok really shines is with its pool and spa area - the pool is gigantic and is an outdoor pool, making it the perfect place to sunbathe in Thailand's super sun. There's also a separate pool for kids, for those that think relaxing equates being away from kids (like us haha).

Next to the pools are saunas and steam rooms, it doesn't get more luxurious than this! You could easily spend all afternoon here. They also have an amazing gym. Other highlights of the Amari Watergate Bangkok include the buffet breakfast - with one of the most extensive layouts I've ever seen in a hotel. If you want it for breakfast, you'll find it here - they have every kind of breakfast, from Thai to European to American and beyond.

4. Maduzi Hotel Bangkok ☆☆☆☆

A personal favourite of mine is the Maduzi Hotel Bangkok - one of the best boutique hotels Bangkok. Located in one of Bangkok's trendiest areas, Sukhumvit, this hotel has it all: comfy massive beds, beautiful bathrooms and delicious breakfast. It's also an incredibly beautiful hotel. But what I really like about the Maduzi hotel, is it's not like other hotels - in that it's thought long and hard about traditional hotel features, and improved them where appropriate. For example, instead of offering you the traditional hotel welcome drink on arrival, when you're stressed and in need of a shower, they invite you to have this drink at any point during your stay. It's small touches like this throughout your stay that makes you feel at home. Bonus point: you've heard of an infinity pool, you've heard a jacuzzi, Maduzi hotel combines the two giving you the jacuzzi infinity bath! A must try.

5. Citadines Sukhumvit 23 Bangkok ☆☆☆☆

Last, and certainly not least, we have Citadines Sukhumvit 23 Bangkok - another awesome hotel/apartment hybrid. In addition to the usual Bangkok luxury hotel features and kitchen in your room that most boutique hotel / apartment hybrids offer, Citadines Sukhumvit 23 also offers room service and not just laundry service but laundry facilities too - aka you can choose between having someone do it for you, or using the facilities and doing it yourself, the best of both worlds! I really like the personal touch that Citadines offered - when I visited we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and were greeted with beautiful roses, a thoughtful note and a bed decked out with rose petals - it was so special and kind of them!

What I also really like about Citadines is their environmental credentials: to make recycling as easy as possible they invite you to put all your rubbish in one bag for them to sort through later. It can often be confusing to know what can be recycled and how to do it when you move around to different countries, this took the stress out of everything. Their pool and breakfast are also first class, of course. They offer both Thai options and Western options. I tried both and both were delicious!

Wrap Up: Best Boutique Hotels in Bangkok

All in all, if you're looking for beautiful boutique hotels Bangkok, at reasonable prices you will not be disappointed. Some of the nicest luxury hotels we've stayed in have been in Bangkok. It's so wonderful to be able to go back to an oasis of calm after a long day of chaotic Bangkok. Many people get overwhelmed the first time they visit this wonderful city and I'm a firm believer that the only way to combat this is by staying somewhere that makes you feel at home and pampered.
