Lebua's unique feature is The Dome, a dramatic rooftop restaurant 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, there's the Sky Bar specialising in whiskey, champagne and cocktails, Ocean 52 with its innovative cocktails and world-spanning wine list, and the wonderfully sophisticated Distil, where guests can indulge with oak-aged spirits and hand-rolled Cuban cigars. Meanwhile, while the excellent Café Mozu offers one of the city’s best breakfasts.
The rest of the hotel is situated on the upper floors of this neo-classical skyscraper near the Chao Phraya River. All 136 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.
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.
