Rates

From THB 15,500++ (approximately S$635) to THB 28,000++ (approximately S$1,147).

Basics

The result of one family’s search for a peaceful enclave away from the hustle of the city, 137 Pillars Suites & Residences takes one away from the rigour of the city’s ceaseless regime. Part residence, part hotel, the latter half of the compound houses 34 luxurious, exclusive suites (each named after a royal period in the Thai history) for its visitors.

Staying true to its name, the impeccable standards of service at 137 Pillars Hotel is a nod to its regal inspirations. Fit for a king, each room is outfitted with a private dining area, butler service, maxi bars with private wine cellars, en-suite bathrooms complete with lavish baths and spacious balconies with breath-taking views of the cityscape.

Upon arrival at the hotel, I was greeted with a scrumptious antipasti platter alongside a glass of refreshing cocktail concoction.

Location

The hotel, strategically located at the heart of Bangkok’s upscale emquartier and emporium shopping district and the trendy Sukhumvit Thonglor district, encapsulates an experience that is the best of both worlds. Located a 30-minute drive away from the airport, a luxurious limousine fleet on standby awaits to pick guests upon arrival. Hot towels and bottled water are offered for post-flight recovery.

The Room

Categorised into four different suites according to size, the rooms at 137 Pillars Hotel range from 70 square meters at its smallest to 127 square meters at its largest. A carefully considered balance between a modern luxury and heritage comfort, the room’s interior meets at the middle ground. Wooden accent walls and dark wood furnishings juxtaposed against touches of earthy tone evoke a sense of indulgence without losing the familiarity of a home away from home.

The suite’s balcony, overlooking the sprawling cityscape, is vantage point for a breathtaking sunrise and sunset one will hardly tire of.

The Bathroom

A signature feature at 137 Pillars Hotel, the expansive marble bathroom houses a large bathtub fit for the king, a shower area separated by glass doors and an additional room where the automated toilet sits.

Taking luxury a notch higher, the sprawling space is also outfitted with a LCD television to entertain during a bubble bath and a vanity to doll up at after. Toiletries and electronic devices such as hairdryer and clothing iron were also provided for guests.

Amenities

With an entire repertoire of amenities for its guests, 137 Pillars Hotel leaves one spoilt for choice. In line with the holistic experience that 137 Pillars hopes to offers its vacationers, the hotel features an exclusive spa and wellness centre located on its 28th floor.

The options do not end there. Private sessions at the fitness, yoga and meditation studious can also be arranged. The premise also features not one but two infinity pools and daybeds for guests to frolic and lounge around in.

Dining

From casual afternoon lunches to formal dinners, the hotel has an array of dining options for its guests to indulge in. At the hotel’s lobby, The Bangkok Trading Post Bistro & Deli serves a delectable menu of fusion cuisine that amalgamates Western and Asian culinary chops. Inspired by Thailand and its neighbours, the flavours of the region are plated and presented at Bangkok Trading Post.

For culinary enthusiasts, a gastronomic experience awaits at Nimitr (which, literally translates to, a special dream). Curated by Swedish Culinary Director and Artist Peter Marx, who has more than five decades of experience in the kitchen, the menu offers an unique mélange of Asian and Western cuisine. Cocktails are prepared at Jack Bain’s bar, a respite for the modern day dapper dandy where whiskey and cigars play complimentary.

The option of private dining at the comfort of the room is also extended to guests no matter the time of the day.

Bottom Line

The 137 Pillars Hotel is a respite away from the city all while remaining at the heart of it. The best of both worlds, one may call it.
