The unique feature here is The Dome, a collection of world-class and award-winning bars and restaurants – including two with multiple Michelin stars – with a dramatic rooftop setting on the 64th floor of the landmark State Tower. It's the world's highest al fresco dining spot, and views from here at sunset are magnificent. Alongside the Mediterranean-themed Sirocco eaterie and the two-Michelin-starred Mezzaluna, there's the Sky Bar specialising in champagne and cocktails; Alfresco 64, the highest whiskey bar in the world; and the wonderfully sophisticated Flute, where guests can indulge with exclusive champagnes, caviar and oysters served to the sounds of a live jazz band.
The rest of the hotel is situated on the upper floors of this neo-classical skyscraper near the Chao Phraya River. All 221 bedrooms are spacious suites with balconies and kitchenettes, some offering meals cooked in your room by The Dome's chefs. Interiors are luxurious but understated, handsomely finished in contemporary light and dark woods and sprinkled with orchids. The two- and three-bedroom suites are well suited for families and boast more than one balcony. For an added layer of luxury, many suites come with included access to the Tower Club Lounge. Open between between 6am and 6pm, guests can enjoy complementary breakfast, all-day canapés, high-tea and wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
And after all that, for chilling out in the tropical heat there's gorgeous open-air swimming pool with citywide rooftop views, and the spa with its traditional Thai massages and rejuvenating facial and body treatments.
