Tower Club at lebua is unquestionably the most iconic hotel in Bangkok. Many will know it from The Hangover II, but the towering 67-floor hotel was famous long before the Hollywood boys got there, thanks to its signature golden dome and neo-classical balconies fronting an instantly recognisable white-washed exterior.
They also boast Bangkok’s highest rooftop bar, Sky Bar, the highest alfresco restaurant in the world at Sirocco, and at the very top, Mezzaluna, a fine-diner that completely blew us away on a recent visit. Booking into the Tower Club at lebua means you’re guaranteed to be on a high floor too, with your own balcony and lots and lots of space (suites start at 66 sqm).
Prices are surprisingly affordable, but if you’re not convinced yet, see our 10 Reasons to Stay at Tower Club at lebua below…
Gorgeous views from 63 floors up, sweeping breezes, refined Mediterranean cuisine and some of the most creative cocktails we’ve ever tasted in Bangkok… what more could you ask for from the highest alfresco restaurant in the world? Don’t forget the adjacent Sky Bar too, which is the highest in Bangkok. Read More...
FREE COCKTAILS at Tower Club Lounge for 12 hours
Everybody booking into the Tower Club at lebua gets access to the exclusive ‘Tower Club Lounge’ on the 52nd floor. We couldn’t quite believe it either, but here you can enjoy unlimited snacks, canapés, soft drinks - and more impressively - all alcoholic beverages including cocktails, wine and beer. It’s all free.
Balconies for all! (with riverside views)
Just look at that view. As all the suites in lebua’s Tower Club are located between the 51st and 59th floors, you’re guaranteed stunning views of the city and Chao Phraya River, which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own private huge balcony.
Everybody’s heard of lebua’s Sky Bar, but Bangkok’s most famous place to sink cocktails above the city does get a little busy at times. Swap the crowds for the altogether more laid back ‘Distil Bar’ on the 64th floor. Views from the bed-style seating spread around the breezy outside terrace make the 400 baht+ price tag for the cocktails seem well worth it. Read More...
All rooms are suites, starting at 66 square metres
All the rooms at Tower Club at lebua are suites, which start at more-than-generous 66 square metres, with en suite bathrooms, kitchenettes, separate living rooms and balconies. Don’t be put off by the word ‘suite’, thinking it’ll be too expensive; prices here are the same as many standard double room elsewhere in Bangkok.
Anybody familiar with our restaurants section on Bangkok.com will know we’ve eaten at some of the finest diners across the capital, but few have impressed us as much as Mezzaluna – the restaurant inside ‘The Dome’ on the top stories 65th-floor. Expect innovative French cuisine with Japanese influences courtesy of the Chef Ryuki Kawasaki, whose delectable creations left us pretty much in awe. But you will need your credit card for this one.

Near the Skytrain, Riverside and Silom
Bangkok’s traffic, particularly in the evenings, can be pretty horrible. Luckily, a lebua Hotel benefit is close to two different transport links: the BTS Skytrain at Saphan Taksin, and the Chao Phraya River, where you can jump on a quick shuttle boat up and down the water to some of Bangkok’s most famous landmarks.
Buffet breakfast next to the pool
We heard good things about lebua’s buffet breakfast, but what impressive us even more than the food was the location, set next to the mezzaline-level outdoor pool in some cute resort settings at Café Mozu.
Again, this is a luxury exclusive to Tower Club at lebua. A newspaper of your choice arrives at your door every morning, everything in your minibar is complimentary, and there’s a fully-stocked selection of tea and fresh coffee blends in your kitchen. Additionally, you can head to the exclusive Tower Club lounge for Continental breakfast (06:00-11:00), lights luncheon (12:00-15:00), high tea (15.00-18.00) and unlimited drinks from 06:00-18:00.
…and you can even sleep in the same bed as Bradly Cooper in their Hangover Suite
Although the price isn’t even advertised (but we know it’s just over $1,000*cough cough*), the famous suite that Bradly Cooper and the rest of the wolf pack stayed at while filming The Hangover II can actually be booked out. Three bedrooms, an open-plan living/dining room, a kitchen and no less than four balconies are spread across almost 3,000 square feet. It comes with three bottles of booze (18-year-old Chivas, Absolut vodka and gin) thrown in, as well as complimentary ‘Hangovertini’ cocktails at the Sky Bar. It’s extravagant, outrageous, but share the cost between six people, and you have yourself a surprisingly good deal.
