USP: The Sukhothai Bangkok can be described simply in one word; palatial. It really does take luxury to another level.

Book now if: If you're heading to Bangkok, ready to submerge yourself in the hustle and bustle of this diverse city you'll be looking for a slice of serenity and exuberant luxury to soothe your stimulated senses. Nothing fits the bill better than the sumptuousness that is the Sukhothaui.

Bedding down: All rooms are exquisitely ornamented with the finest teak wood, thai silk, marble and mirrors. With 210 rooms there's plenty of choice, but we'd recommend the Executive Delux room; at 76 square metres you'll truly feel like royalty. The piece de resistance is the bathroom. This grand, spacious room is totally covered in mirrored panelling, from floor to ceiling. It is quite something to behold.

Feed me: Breakfast, in keeping with the palatial theme is fit for a king. Other dining options range from authentic Thai to contemporary Italian, and if you're lucky you'll be graced by the presence of one of their visiting, internationally renowned, Michelin Starred chefs. For totally sinful indulgence we'd suggest you partake in the plentiful afternoon chocolate buffet, which should really be termed banquet.

Easily bored: Getting bored here is simply not possible. Within the grounds of this extensive complex of extravagance there is plenty to do. Exercise in style in the gym, laze in style by the pool, be pampered in style in the spa or gorge in style in any one of their numerous restaurants. If this isn't quite enough for you, outside the calm haven that is the Sukhothai there is a vast array of things to entertain.

What's the damage: Rooms start from 11000BHT (approximately £220) for a superior room but we'd recommend you splurge on the executive deluxe room (14000 BHT/280). You won't be disappointed.
