I swiped the key and the door opened up to a winter wonderland. White. All in white.
I recently had the chance to stay at the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G while I was in town for a travel conference, and the hotel was such a pleasant surprise. My first thought when I walked into the room was, “Aww, this is just like Canada in winter!” so in a strange way it felt quite homey.
What can I say, I may be starting to miss snow and winter after four months of tropical summers – it’s hard to take Canada out of the girl!
I stayed in the deluxe room on the twenty third floor, and the room was chic, spacious and as I mentioned before, white from top to bottom.
While everything in the room was one colour – the floors, walls, linens, furniture and decorations – all the different textures and fabrics in the room added a fun, contemporary twist to the place.
Since I was here for work, I also appreciated having Wi-fi access and a nice spacious desk where to check my emails and get caught up on some projects. And when it came time to do a little research on the attractions around town, there was also a nice little seating area by the window where I could put my feet up and do a bit of reading.
The Skyline Views
The room had floor to ceiling windows with great views of the Silom district below. During my four day stay here I was treated to a mixture of blue skies, pastel sunsets, and tempestuous storms rolling over the city.
There was a little miscommunication, so my biggest disappointment was finding out that breakfast was included only on the very last day of my stay! I missed out on an exquisite international buffet, but we made up for it with our one final meal.
Fresh breads, passionfruit jam, waffles, smoked salmon, cheeses, dim sum, stir-fry, fresh fruit salads, biscuits, omelets, sausages, bacon, cake and so much more. It was a one of a kind feast where I kept going back for more and more of my favourites.
Another fun aspects of staying at the Pullman Hotel Bangkok G were the number of events happening in their Playground Bubbles and Mixology Bars – international djs, disco fever nights, and even tattoo parties! You read that right, TATTOO PARTIES.
While I was staying there they hosted an event called ‘Art my Body’ where you could get a tattoo and a cocktail for 2,500 baht ($80 USD), or if you weren’t ready for a permanent Bangkok souvenir, a henna tattoo and a drink for 800 baht ($25 USD).
The Swimming Pool
And then there was this pool with spectacular views of Bangkok. I really wish I’d had more time to lounge around the hotel and enjoy some of the facilities like the lengthy pool, but between getting up at 6 in the morning to get ready for a day at the conference, followed by networking sessions and then after parties, there was very little time left to enjoy this amazing pool, so I guess I’ll just have to go back sometime.
Many thanks to the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G for hosting me during my stay in the Big Mango!
