It is one of 51 islands that form the Mu Koh Chang National Park archipelago, which is an international tourist destination for its lush rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife and beautiful coral reefs. Awa Resort Koh Chang is going to be the largest resort on the island, and the most desired destination for those tourists seeking a luxurious base from which to explore the natural wonders of this area.
The city of Ayutthaya, sitting on the Chao Phraya River, was once upon a time known as the “Venice of the East” and is now home to Sala Hospitality Group’s newest addition, Sala Ayutthaya- though not as early as originally planned and reported here.
With a view that will overwhelm your senses, this latest addition directly faces Wat Phutthaisawan, a history drenched reminder of another world. The temple was known as the “Monastery of Lord Buddha of the Heavens”, and heaven is exactly where you will think you are upon stepping into Sala Ayutthaya.
Opened in May 2014, another boutique offering for the tourists or business traveler in Bangkok, Hotel Icon promises an “iconic experience”. Shiny and new with a sleek modern fit out, the price bracket is similar to that of the Ibis range of hotels but with a more individual approach.
Well positioned, the hotel is in a small soi behind the bustling and hustlers paradise of Soi 4, which is one of the well-known party streets in Bangkok for nightclubs, bars and restaurants. It is situated close to the sky train link and a few stops from all the major shopping centers for those craving a retail fix.
Opened may 1 2014 in a convenient and central location, the Grand Swiss Sukhumvit 11 Hotel Bangkok offers tranquility amidst the vibrant madness and spicy aroma fuelled Bangkok. Tucked away in a little lane, it is a hidden gem of elegance with a four star rating.
With exceptional website booking rates such as a free upgrade to an Executive Room with Club Access on offer for as little as THB2,378++ per night. In celebration of their grand opening if you are staying two nights or more, the rates are even lower. If you are one of the few people that can get organized in advance, a 30% discount is applicable starting at THB 1,843++ per night. They even have a special rate for shopaholics; considering that the hotel is located a mere two minute walk to the Nana BTS Station and all of the famous shopping centers such as The Emporium, Central World and Siam Paragon are two stops away, this has got to be a curse for the credit card and a winner for the women carrying them.
U Zenmaya is another sparkling gem in the crown of U Hotels & Resorts, whose altruistic philosophy is to give back to the local community in which their properties are located. Kalim Beach is five minutes north of the throbbing multitudes in Patong; close enough to visit attractions without too much hassle, and removed enough to create your own bubble of mind and body togetherness in the illusion of oneness with the world. Just as the name “Zenmaya” implies.
