  • 10 Reasons to Stay at Okura Prestige Bangkok

    We Loved It and Here’s Why…

    The Okura Prestige Bangkok hotel is dedicated to the principles of ‘Simplicity and Elegance’ and never before during a review has a hotel’s philosophy been so clearly executed. Evoking an unmistakable Japanese aesthetic, this hotel is surely one of the finest in Bangkok; be it for business or leisure.

    Each of the 240 rooms, all wrapped in glass from floor-to-ceiling, offer superb views of the business district of Ploenchit and beyond, the three restaurants on site present remarkable fine-dining and weekend buffets, while the cantilevered swimming pool is something unique and unforgettable. Here is our personally reviewed 10 Reasons to Stay at Okura Prestige Bangkok.

  • 1
    Stay in an ultra-exclusive luxury hotel
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Those of you who prefer timeless sophistication and functional, beautiful interior design will fall in love with this hotel. No gaudy gimmicks, no flashing lights; Okura Prestige lives by its philosophy ‘Simplicity and Elegance’ and is without doubt one of the most exclusive hotels in Bangkok.

    2
    Refined Japanese-inspired Ambiance and Service
    at Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Guest relations staff dressed in traditional Japanese kimono bow reverently when they enter any room, and service staff stand proudly silent waiting to take care of a guest’s request. It is this kind of respectful service – so typically Japanese – that makes guests feel honoured.

    Intelligent Room Designs

    Rooms are so well designed, even in entry level rooms it feels like an apartment rather than a studio room. Bathrooms are separate yet sliding doors roll back to create an open, flowing space, and there is even a walk-in wardrobe with changing room.

    4
    Direct Access to BTS Ploenchit Station
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    A godsend during rush hours in this part of downtown Bangkok, the BTS Skytrain can be accessed in less than three minutes. There are also shops and restaurants in the same building.

    5
    Yamazato Restaurant
    Okura Prestige Bangkok Yamazato

    Flagship restaurant Yamazato is a mainstay of all Okura brand hotels around the world, and although the Michelin-starred Yamazato Amsterdam receives most of the attention, Bangkok’s version is simply sublime: premium sashimi flown direct from Japan three times a week, the finest cuts of Matsusaka beef on the teppanyaki grill and diligent service all make Yamazato one of the finest, albeit most expensive, restaurants in Bangkok.

    6
    Eggs Benedict at Breakfast
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Come breakfast time you simply have to try the eggs benedict in Up and Above, cooked to order from a menu of different variations – no other hotel in Bangkok offers this! The breakfast buffet covers all regional cuisines too, with fresh juices and herbal drinks, Japanese, pan-Asian, Continental and fried dishes all making an appearance. There is also the option of going for a Japanese set breakfast in Yamazato Restaurant on the opposite side of the lobby.

    7
    Luxury Bedding and Linens
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Having stayed at some of the finest quality hotels in the world, bedding is something we know can make the difference, and here the 100% Egyptian cotton linens are beautifully soft and comforting. Come night time, guests will sink into bed for an experience akin to sleeping on a fluffy cloud.

    8
    Japanese High Tea
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Many hotels do afternoon tea in the English style with fancy cakes and finger sandwiches, but Okura Prestige Bangkok is the only one we know of that does it in the Japanese fashion: mochi cakes, authentic green tea and other treats all presented in a tasteful bento box make a lovely way to spend a late afternoon.

    9
    Swimming pool hanging in mid air
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Widely considered the best in Bangkok, the cantilevered swimming pool at this hotel is truly stunning because it seems to hang in mid-air. It regularly features in lists of the world’s best pools.

    10
    Central Embassy Shopping Mall connected to the hotel via a Skywalk
    Okura Prestige Bangkok

    Perfect for all weather shopping, the ultra-luxe shopping mall, Central Embassy, stands on the opposite corner of the junction and can be reached via a covered skywalk. Brands here include Gucci, Chanel, Miu Miu and Vivienne Westwood.
