Feel the Love at Some of the Most Romantic Hotels in Bangkok

There’s plenty of nightlife to be found in Bangkok, but there’s an equal number of romantic hotels waiting to welcome couples in search of serenity.

Despite its reputation as a party capital, beautiful Bangkok definitely has a romantic side. The city is centred on the undulating Chao Phraya River, which offers the perfect ambience for sunset or starlit cruises, while historical temples and palaces offer the perfect excuse to stroll hand-in-hand through the picturesque remnants of bygone eras. Thousands of modern bars and restaurants cater to every taste, and the unique mix of mega malls, markets and street vendors make it easy to find the perfect gift.

But by far the most important consideration when planning a romantic trip to Bangkok is deciding where to stay. Luckily, a plethora of gorgeous hotels cater very well to couples looking for an intimate, luxurious experience. Make it an affair to remember with our pick of the most romantic hotels in Bangkok.

Snuggle up at Banyan Tree Bangkok

If you’re searching for an intimate city escape, look no further – Banyan Tree Bangkok is the hotel for you. This five-star resort gives you easy access to the city’s highlights, but its huge, well-appointed rooms and luxurious atmosphere might see you staying indoors for longer than anticipated.

Cape House is only a short walk from many tourist destinations such as shopping centres, parks, restaurants, temples and shrines, and is perfect for independent couples who still want to enjoy a luxury stay.

Experience heaven at Shangri-La Bangkok

As the name suggests, Shangri-La Bangkok is a little slice of paradise on the Chao Phraya River.

Should you choose to leave the calm sanctuary of the hotel and its lush tropical surroundings, you’ll have easy access to the sights and sounds of Bangkok’s shopping and entertainment districts, parks, gardens and cultural landmarks.
