Business, leisure and pleasure often go together when it comes to my Marketing Consulting professional activity. Basically I travel the world to bring support to entrepreneurs and brands who need to improve their marketing, mostly digital marketing in order to keep building a close relationship with their customers while better understanding their needs.
I had this extraordinary opportunity to spend a entire month in Asia, discovering its splendors and most exotic landscapes.
After a 15 hours flight on EMIRATES, the best airline company onboard the A380…(fantastic service and acomodation !). Thaïland, the Smile Kingdom opened its arms and wrapped it all around me in a warm and truly authentic atmosphere.
Bangkok…here I am… I mean BANGKOK, you know ! This exciting city that never sleeps, and which has such an aura.
The taxi driver takes me to the Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao, one of those five stars hotels which offers a perfect central location. The lobby is clear, fountains, plants, flowers and a fully dedicated Staff make the entrance very pleasant.
This business stay will for sure be engraved in my memory ! The pool is amazing !!! Oh my Gosh !!! (let’s read till the end then !)
Once into the spacious bedroom, the originality comes definitely from the bathroom, which is separated from the room by a large glass window. The room has all the closets and drawers you can expect while travelling or being a fashion addict. There’s a space dedicated for suitcase, a minibar.
The room’s decoration is warm, modern and cozy. You can easily feel at home in this hotel. The bathrobe and coffee/tea tray are a delicate attention towards guests which make you feel like you will be pampered like a star at the Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok ! And being pampered…this is what we love, Girls !!!
Regarding the room itself it is spacious, ultra clean, very comfy, the bed is cozy and invites you to snuggle into the fluffy pillow.
The desk is perfect for setting the multimedia desktop with a laptop, smartphone and tablet. The view from the desk is breathtaking… a magnificent « through the glass » panoramic view on Bangkok’s skyline… and if you look down, your eyes drawn into the turquoise blue of the exotic pool, located within the heart of a luxurious garden.
Wi-Fi and a generous buffet breakfast are included with your stay. No extra charge.
The breakfast is huge , fresh, and super good ! DELICIOUS !
Another touch of originality and crazy « detail » for a fashion addict like me is that this hotel is connected to the Central Plaza Shopping Mall. This heavenly has more than 300 stores and over 90 restaurants awaiting for you… No kidding ! Regarding the stores, they all display quite original items, beautiful outfits and very colorful accessories, soaps and bathroom must-haves. It’s often tiny, cute, very elegant and made with delicacy. More traditional markets are located in town at 10 minutes with tuk-tuk or cab.
Restaurants offer plenty of fresh fish, fresh noodles, veggies, fruits to choose your menu from. This is amazing ! All the food area is super clean and perfect if you have spend the day outside and want to enjoy a quick dinner before going back to the hotel.
The hotel itself offers 9 restaurants to choose from, as well as an international buffet which is amazing in size and choices!
The best place to have a moment out of the world is the Rooftop Blue Sky Lounge to experience a delighting moment enjoying the city lights, sunset and endless skyline.
Of course, I kept the « blue lagoon » part for the end of the review…the pool is the central masterpiece of this hotel. Located at the heart of a beautiful garden.
Often hotel clients lack courtesy and leave their towels on the chairs as if it was their own for the entire day, however, if you wake up early enough, you can have the pleasure to dive into this turquoise blue warm water to swim and relax before a busy day. This is a true paradise to relax and reconnect to yourself. A true heaven !
Guests can relax in the jacuzzi, at the fitness center, enjoy a massage or spa treatment at the wellness centre which is amazingly pleasant. I had a body scrub, facial treatment and massage… and didn’t want to leave !
This hotel makes lifestyle an art and deserves its reputation.
Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok is located opposite the famous Chatuchak Park and Sunday Market. It is a 15-minute drive from Don Muang Airport and a 40-minute drive from Suvarnabhumi Airport.
There is also a shuttle service and free parking and a multilingual staff who is fully dedicated to your wellbeing during your stay and who will anything for you to experience the most delightful stay ever.
After spending such an entertaining stay at the Centara Grand at Central Plaza at Ladprao Bangkok, I would with no doubt recommend to any traveler willing to consider booking a room there !
I’d give this place an 8,5/10 ! I hope you enjoyed this review of Thaï paradise…
