W Bangkok

P1040244

My glorious little stay at Aloft only fed my appetite for the W experience. Welcome to Nasimi beach, the painfully glamorous stretch of sand at Atlantis The Palm. 

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy am I glad we did.

 As soon as we walked in to the glossy, lacquered and very sparkly reception I just knew this was a hotel after my own heart. We were quickly whisked into the Woo bar for a couple of complimentary cocktails as our room wasn’t quite ready. 

Off to a rather good start…

 As a bar it’s relaxed, fun and painfully trendy.

 This was my favourite little cocktail – Butterfly flower infused vodka, lime and 24 carat gold dust. Simply wonderful.

I fell in love with this mesmerising feature. The Tuk Tuk couture wall, complete with over 800 lights representing Bangkok’s traffic congestion and dazzling street lights. Just wow.

A pillow menu, bedside tablet computers to pander to your every need (including turning the lights on/off), Bliss amenities and seriously cool Muay Thai decor… Yes, the room was truly spectacular.

I found my calling, a new career path so to speak. When in Bangkok and all…

We dragged ourselves away from the deliciously refreshing air-con for an afternoon dip in the pool.

And a drink or two…

As the sun set we made our way back to the little Muay Thai fort to get ready for a last dinner in the city.

This place leaves you with a sort of pampered, cocktail induced tipsy glow that has you whispering “I just want to go back” all the way home. I highly recommend a stay. I must admit I feel as though I have been caught hook, line and sinker by the W chain. Every travel plan now begins with “Does it have a W?”.

    Amazing pics, the W experience is pretty awesome. If you ever get the chance, go to the W in Taipei- they have the best Sunday bubbly brunch and pool party that follows. The rooms are also pretty incredible!
