The stylish Oriental Residences has 145 deluxe suites designed mainly for extended stays. The high ceilings, marble surfaces and trendy décor appeal to a fashionable crowd, as does its location in Bangkok’s shopping district. There’s a complimentary shuttle service to the ultra-luxurious Central Embassy shopping mall, and to Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) Chidlom station. Ploenchit BTS station is 600 metres from the residences, while Lumpini Park is a 6-minute stroll away.
There are two gourmet eateries: the modern and airy Café Claire serves upmarket Western fare (such as gourmet fish and chips) in chic surroundings, while the French-influenced Salverberg Thailand restaurant is the ultimate fine-dining experience -- the kitchen is headed by one of Europe’s best known chefs, Henk Savelberg. With panoramic views and state-of-the-art equipment in the gym, working all these meals off won't be too much of a slog. There’s even a personal trainer service upon request.
Or swap the gym for some retail therapy. A shopping butler can help you navigate your way around the designer shops nearby. Other services include laundry, valet parking and a fast-track service at Suvarnabhumi International Airport. The Play Deck on the fourth floor has a 20-metre pool and a bar that overlooks the city and Embassy Gardens below. Kids are well looked after, too, with babysitting services, a children’s pool and special menus.
Ultra-chic, spacious residences feature hardwood floors and marble bathrooms. They range from 1- to 3- bedrooms, but all have free Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchens, mini bars, washer/dryers and flat-screen TVs with cable, plus a pillow menu. Large windows have magnificent city views.
