Uncluttered 5 star elegance in the sky, the Compass Skyview Hotel Bangkok, is a contemporary hotel where the discerning guest will want to hang out in the Mojo Bar with views to die for over the blinking lights of the city’s skyline – think floor to ceiling windows – and decadent old world charm reeking of leather and crystal. Whilst for others it may be the Cuban Sky Bar, where you can tinkle the ice blocks in your drink whilst leisurely puffing on your perfect cigar choice in total Havana bliss.
The hospitality group, Compass Hospitality is headquartered in Bangkok and has 4 distinctive lifestyle brands – Compass, Citrus, Citin and Ananda Spa – covering Malaysia, Thailand and the United Kingdom in its portfolio from resorts, serviced apartments to boutique city hotels.
This stylish high-rise hotel sitting in Sukhumvit Soi 24 is the hangout for the trendy and fashionable crowd that like to swan around the Emporium Shopping Mall, slip easily into the Bangkok’s business district with ease via the BTS Phrom Phong Station, dine at one of the many up-market restaurants or sip espresso at a funky cafe amidst the hotels and boutiques lining this long bustling street.
Upon entering the marble floor foyer, bright splashes of colored flowers soften the almost clinical clean lines with plush steely grey lounges scattered around the reception area under soaring ceilings. The hotel’s design is all about light, space, simplicity and panache, which is carried throughout its 285 guest rooms of extravagant clubrooms, luxurious suites and serviced apartments. All of the rooms are decked out with IDD telephone, LED TV, an overflowing bar fridge and opulent furnishings and bedding.
The dedicated “Club” domains are worth the extra cash for the benefits on offer and the exclusivity afforded by indulging yourself. There is complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the property, non-smoking and smoking rooms, 24-hour reception and concierge for guests’ convenience, airport transfers and car parking available. The state-of-the-art gym will have the most avid exercise junkie enthralled.
From the lush swimming pool to laze around or to float on top of the world in, to chilling out with a decadent cocktail or munching on a light snack, Liquid will be the place to be seen, or the perfect venue for an outdoor event whether it is social or corporate. The Grand Ballroom is 308 square meters of pillar-less space with soaring ceilings and connected to outdoor terraces for those guests that wish to take a quick break in the steamy Bangkok air. In-house dining enclaves include “Prime”, dishing up international cuisine to “Prime+” for fine dining in an ambient urban grill and bar scenario.
Compass Skyview Hotel Bangkok is sure to woo those in search of more than just good looking accommodation, but for hospitality service that really is 5 stars.
