VIDEO: Amari Watergate Hotel in Bangkok

In hopes of celebrating Audrey’s 26th birthday in style, we checked into the luxurious Amari Watergate Hotel located in the heart of downtown Bangkok, Thailand.

We were very fortunate to have met contacts from the Amari Watergate Hotel during the Digital Innovation Asia Conference (DIA) we attended in early June. When they expressed interest in working with us, we weren’t certain at the time when we’d be back in Bangkok.

When our Finland trip manifested itself several weeks ago it was the perfect opportunity to head back to Bangkok, as our Turkish Airways flight departs from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Our exit out of Thailand and holiday in Europe just happened to coincide with Audrey’s 26th birthday. Thus, a stay at the Amari Watergate Hotel, nearby all of the major shopping malls in Bangkok, was a serendipitous opportunity we didn’t want to pass up.

As we checked into our room we were greeted with smiles and helping hands (in the form of having our baggage carried) from our gracious hosts. Although we arrived early, they had our room ready for us in less than an hour.

The room itself was smart with a comfortable working space, comfy couch and large flat screen television.

The bed was equipped with several different types of pillows. One of the coolest options was the opportunity to custom order a ‘special’ pillow; options included the Cervicalopedic pillow, the Contour massage pillow and the Buckwheat pillow. Naturally we went with the Buckwheat pillow which was 100% natural providing special support to our head, neck and shoulders.

In the afternoon, we felt like exercising, so we headed down to the eight floor to check out the facilities. Immediately, we were impressed by the spacious swimming pool, lounge area, sauna room and massive state of the art gym. We ended up taking a dip in the pool followed by a relaxing session in the sauna.

Breakfast at the Amari is a buffet fit for kings and queens. With an International selection encompassing European, Middle Eastern and Asian options, I personally couldn’t get enough hummus, Indian chapatis and bacon saturated in pure maple syrup. The diversity in the menu was impressive. I went back for more plates of food than I’d like to admit considering I’m supposedly on a diet 😉

The hotel certainly lived up to expectations (and then some) allowing us to relax in Bangkok while celebrating Audrey’s birthday in a classy environment. We certainly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others as a great option when traveling in Bangkok.
