AN avant garde, design focused hotel with a surrealist vibe, Dream Bangkok offers a luxurious stay in a 5-star, boutique environment.
What makes it special?
Dream Bangkok by hotelier Vikram Chatwal is a cool, contemporary 5-star boutique hotel housed across two buildings. It offers a trendy yet peaceful place to stay with ultra stylish décor and design, from the decadent lobby to the cool white and chocolate brown bedecked rooms featuring sleep-inducing ambient blue light. The rooftop pool is the perfect place to unwind and perhaps order a cocktail, or for a full range of high end drinks there’s the funky Flava Lounge. The hotel’s restaurant, also called Flava, is an excellent and decidedly non-hotel like place to dine on modern Asian and fusion cuisine, and for pampering, Dream’s in-house spa is the perfect place to unwind.
What to expect?
The rooms offer everything you would expect and more, with extra touches including iPod nanos and Veuve Cliquot in the mini-bar. The hotel’s design offers a touch of surrealism from the eye-catching décor in the public spaces to clever use of ambient lighting.
The rooms at Dream are modern, simple and clean, with the lead-in rooms small yet sufficient. Room types range from Standard to Deluxe to Suites, and come equipped with free Wi-Fi, a 42 inch plasma screen television, DVD player, ipod Nano, 300 thread count sheets and a mini bar stocked with Veuve Cliquot and high end spirits like 42 Below vodka.
Dream’s onsite restaurant Flava features a mix of contemporary Thai and pan-Asian cuisine and gourmet Western meals. It is set in a decadent, trendy space with an adjoining bar, Flava Lounge, offering innovative cocktails and other high end drinks, with colourful candy striped walls and live DJs.
What is there to do?
Dream Bangkok is located in the heart of bustling Bangkok’s Sukhumvit, home to excellent shopping, nightlife and eating options, plus the convenient skytrain and MRT, or underground. If the outside life can’t tempt you then Dream Bangkok also offers a sleek rooftop swimming pool, a gym, luxurious day spa including couples treatments, and state of the art meeting and conference facilities.
What’s the damage?
There are 195 guest rooms and suites in six categories, accommodating approximately 390 guests. Rooms cost US$82.50 to US$136 per night (including tax).
