The Amari Watergate is a sleek, 5-star hotel in Bangkok's buzzing Pratunam district, the city's premier shopping area, where you'll find everything from Platinum Shopping Mall, MBK, Siam Paragon and Central World, to the street bazaars of Pratunam Market and boutiques in Siam Square. It is also near the city's Central Business District, so it's in a flexible location for those mixing business with pleasure.
If you tire of shopping, you can explore the city's world-famous Erawan Shrine (an 11-minute walk) or Trimurti Shrine, dedicated to the lovelorn and those in need of a romantic pick-me-up (at the far end of the Central World Shopping Plaza). A stroll along the nearby Khlong Saen Sap canal or in the hotel's namesake Pratunam (Water Gate) Park may provide a needed respite. Culture vultures will enjoy the contemporary Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC), or Jim Thompson House -- a complex of traditional Thai houses and artefacts owned by the eponymous American businessman -- both within a 26-minute walk.
The hotel has spacious deluxe rooms and suites, including four floors of private executive suites with their own reception, 24-hour butler service and lounge with spectacular panoramic views. All rooms include plush marble bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, air conditioning control and floor-to-ceiling windows offering views over the city. You can work out at the FIT centre, have a Thai massage in the Breeze Spa, chill out on the garden terrace or the sundeck, enjoy a soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi swimming pool, or relax to the strains of traditional Thai music in the lounge.
In addition to the multitude of eateries on nearby Sukhumvit Road, the hotel offers authentic Lebanese specialties by an award-winning chef in the Nadimos restaurant, classical Thai cuisine at Thai on 4, international cuisine at the chic Promenade and Cascade restaurants, and Chinese dim sum in the Hong Bao lounge.
