Luxury Hotel with Panoramic Views
Tower Club at Lebua is a 64-tier ivory-hued edifice that glistens across Bangkok's horizon with a monumental gilded dome—a palatial crown that sets it apart from neighboring structures yet connects the architectural style to Thailand’s history of sacred golden temples. Tower Club luxury suites rest between the skyscraper’s 51st and 59th floors, where senses can start to feast on the overwhelming cultural diversity of the bustling cityscape below. Suite décor follows Tower Club’s neo-classic charm with toga-white accents, neutral tones, and modern conveniences. All suites have private balconies, with some that beckon travelers to perch above the metropolis on Greco-Roman balconies outfitted with columned banisters.
As warm, urban zephyrs summon visitors out of their luxury lairs, the Tower Club Lounge offers a social space to mingle or meander with complimentary refreshment in hand. Comfortable splurging can occur at one of Tower Club’s six inimitable Dome restaurants and bars perched high above the city. Café Mozu’s poolside tables welcome a sunset bite, and Mezzaluna’s chic ambiance complements its course-based dinner and wine pairings. Well-fed travelers unwind in the rooftop club's exclusive open-air pool with swirling jacuzzi jets and state-of-the-art gymnasium with sauna and steam rooms.
From the first wai—a traditional greeting bow—Tower Club at Lebua’s staff coddles visitants with attentive hospitality. Each concierge merrily bestows sightseeing recommendations as well as books tours, whether it’s a boat ride down Chao Phraya River or a daylong detour into Thailand's jungles.
Intermingling of Opposites in a Dense Metropolis
Sprawled throughout a dense network of concrete corridors lies Bangkok's best feature, its enduring dichotomy of rich history and stark modernity. The confluence of religious temples, unrestrained consumerism, and an indulgent nightlife converge on the city and its people in a smorgasbord of purity and decadence. Every human desire is within a few steps or bahts. Bangkok is the superlative crux for urban connoisseurs.
Tower Club’s locale amid the business and shopping districts puts tourists in a sea of contemporary commerce. Adventurists flock to historic temples such as Wat Arun—a recognizable staple on the west bank of the Chao Phraya—or Suan Pakkad Palace, a testimony to the personal history and extensive art collection of the Thai monarchy.
One block from Tower Club, which was featured in the film Hangover 2, is the blithe, infamous Thai nightlife. At Niu’s on Silom, colorfully plated Italian fare accompanies nightly live jazz. Taling Pling rewards daytime street pounders with authentic cuisine regularly savored by the city’s own residents.
Bangkok’s immense cityscape bears many attractions that can be relished free of charge. Weekend and night markets wow the scavenging set with idiosyncratic treasures, and numerous public gardens, such as Lumphini Park, impart sensory overload with paths lined with natural beauty.
