Info : Eugenia, Bangkok
The Eugenia Bangkok is something of a rarity in Bangkok; unique, sophisticated and small. Located a short tuk-tuk ride or ten minute walk from the Sukhumvit Road, the city's main artery, the hotel is an oasis of calm, in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of downtown Bangkok that surrounds it.
Comprised of just 12 elegant suites, The Eugenia Bangkok is intimately spread across the three-storey 19th century colonial style building. Stylishly furnished with period pieces and antiques from throughout the region, it is hard to believe that the building is actually relatively modern. This attention to detail can be seen throughout the property and helps to lend an atmosphere of 'old world' charm to the hotel.
The ground floor of the building houses the small lobby, lounge bar and restaurant. Intimately designed and luxuriously decorated, each space is unique and interesting. The lounge serves sumptuous breakfasts, afternoon tea and light meals throughout the day. The D B Bradley Restaurant serves a range of gourmet cuisine from around the world and opens for lunch and again in the evening for dinner. The setting is slightly more formal than the lounge and the food is superb. There is also a private yet homely dining room which can be booked if you are entertaining friends. In the central courtyard is a small but inviting swimming pool, flanked by sun loungers and palm trees.
The rooms at Eugenia Bangkok are divided into four categories and located on the top two floors of the building; Eugenia Suite, Sawadee Suite, Wattana Suite and Siam Suite. The suites vary in size but all have the same elegance and finesse. Some have access to shared balconies at the front of the property. These rooms can also interconnect so are great for families or friends. The furniture and fittings have been part of an eclectic private collection of the owner and his family collected over time from British & French Colonial Burma, India & Indochina. All bedding has been imported from Belgium, in pure white linen with feather pillows and duvets.
However, beyond luxury and comfort, The Eugenia Bangkok has something that seems to have eluded so many hotels in Bangkok; character. This is one of our favourite places to stay in Bangkok and it's location between the Skytrain stations of Asoke and Phrom Pong makes it an ideal base.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
We arrived back in the UK at 7.00 this morning and I couldn’t wait to thank you for organising such a fabulous holiday for us! Everything went so smoothly and we were really impressed with the quality and style of the hotels you chose for us, the convenient locations, and the local services - absolutely First Class! We had some wonderful food, did some great activities and we particularly enjoyed the Elephant Day which was something we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Also we really enjoyed the trip to the River Kwai and the amazing River Kwai Resotel. I shall certainly recommend your company to anyone who is considering a holiday in South East Asia – thank you again!
