Marriott Executive Apartments Sukhumvit Park Bangkok is located in Soi 24 an alley of the main Sukhumvit road. It is located very close to two luxury shopping malls, the Emporium and the new EmQuartier mall on the opposite. There is a complimentary drop-off and pick up from the Marriott every thirty minutes that stops at the Emporium.
I was impressed with the EmQuatier which houses a whopping 400 fashion labels in total and is spread out over 4,000 square metres of floor space. Also in the Em Quartier, there is the Helix Quarter, a dining extravaganza with over 40 restaurants and an impressive rooftop garden with 100-metre long rain forest. The views of Bangkok from here were brilliant.
This Marriott is all about Executive apartments but with services you would expect from a normal hotel. In total there are 300 suites across 34 floors and there is a mix of different room types.
- Studio (45 sqm)
- 1 Bedroom Suite (65 sqm)
- 1 Bedroom Skyline Suite (65 sqm)
- 1 Bedroom Apartment (85 sqm)
- 2 Bedroom Apartment (130 sqm)
- 3 Bedroom Apartment (180 sqm)
In entering the Marriott the first impressions were like entering a luxury hotel with the five-star service which was fabulous. The reception area is spotless and had a warm feel to it and there was plenty of space to check-in and for children to run around whilst sorting myself out. The lobby area was grand with an Atrium and plenty of sofas and chairs to chill out on. The second floor of the Atrium connects to a total of 6 meeting rooms. Also on the ground floor is the Bistro M which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the M2 go for coffees, snacks and take away items.
Pool & Fitness Area
As I was waiting for my room to get ready I headed to the 3rd floor where the outdoor pool and fitness centre were located. The fitness centre is large and popular with the long term guest, it has all the latest technology equipment to keep guests fit. Outside there is a 1.2 meter deep and 25-meter long outdoor pool perfect for doing laps whilst enjoying views of Bangkok. There is also a smaller 50 cm deep pool which is perfect for the little ones. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool area not to have to fight over it and there is also a Jacuzzi, which unfortunately was not heated. Bar on 3 offers all sorts of drinks and has a small food menu as well. The 3rd floor also has a pool table, a kids playroom and houses the Thada Heritage Spa.
More Sporting Facilities
If you thought this was all that the Marriott Executive apartments had to offer, there are more sports options in a separate building above the parking garage. There is indoor golf as well as an outdoor golf practice area, one tennis court, one badminton court, one squash court and one dance practice area. Plenty of options to keep guests entertained and fit.
I stayed at the two-bedroom apartment which has a living room, a twin bedroom with two queen size beds, a super king-size bedroom and an open plan living room with kitchen, lounge area and dining area. What amazed me immediately is the huge size of the rooms, yes the total space is 130m2.
Open Plan Kitchen Lounge Area
The kitchen dining area is a fabulous area for entertaining and the feel-good factor here is excellent. The fully stocked kitchen is of a high standard and the cutlery, plates, cups knives etc are excellent quality. I am a big fan of granite kitchen worktops as they are easy to keep clean and have a posh feel to it. The splashback is a nice modern glass which is easy to keep clean. The cooking facilities are perfect.
The lounge area has also a dining table for four, a leather corner sofa, flat-screen TV and desk area. As I was with my family this area had ample of space to chill, work and play. On either side of the lounge is a bedroom with solid wood doors and when closed so the sound goes. I could be loud and not wake anyone up whilst working early in the morning.
Next to the entrance is plenty of floor to ceiling storage with one of the cupboards housing a washing machine, dryer and ironing board. This room caters for long term guests as there is plenty of storage everywhere, more on that later.
My huge king-size room had a lovely wooden floor and the space was almost endless. The view overlooking the city was wonderful and I loved the big windows. The bed had six pillows and was super comfortable, in fact, my whole family could sleep in this one bed easily. There is also a working desk with another large screen TV.
The bathroom is en-suite and has a large separate shower offering lots of space to shower. The bath was large and perfect to soak in. Overall the bathroom was of a high standard. The 2nd bathroom attached to the second bedroom is a mirror copy, so my children were equally spoiled. What I liked when entering the bathroom was the huge amount of storage available again with three floor-to-ceiling double door wardrobes available in each bedroom. This hotel can cater long term guest, in fact, I spoke to some of them that have stayed already for two years in a row.
The other bedroom is equal in size and also has a flat-screen TV and desk area. This room is configured with two Queen-sized beds. Everyone was fully entertained and therefore my stay was so relaxed, I didn’t want to leave.
Restaurant Area – Bistro M
Tucked away on the ground floor is the large Bistro M indoor and outdoor dining area which is clean and modern. There is ample food to choose by and wine too. I noticed long term clients would dine here during the evening and the food is fresh and fabulous.
Breakfast is a buffet style and offers plenty of fresh food and the variety caters for all clients. The staff service here is excellent and with a 90% occupancy rate at the Marriott, the staff manage to cater to everyone’s demands including mine. They do a great ice coffee and I loved the sushi option for breakfast. There is plenty of fresh eggs options and bacon to choose by as well.
Buffet With Free Flowing Wine
Every first Friday of the month the Marriott Executive Apartments has a dinner buffet with free-flowing wine. Wine in Asia is not cheap so this is excellent value for money and it showed as it was busy. Make sure to book in advance as its popular with outside guests.
Whether you here alone, with friends or a family the Marriott Executive Apartments Sukhumvit Park will make your stay so more relaxing. Having a spacious room for me makes my life so much easier. The location is excellent and combine this with a 5-star service and it is easy to see why the occupancy rate is high throughout the year. The staff are brilliant and nothing is too much to ask. It was my daughter’s birthday and the staff went out of their way to choose a cake and sing to her. It was for her home being away from home and she felt like they were her family too. The location, the quality of these luxury apartments and the access to the latest in food and shopping is why my stay here ticked all the boxes when it comes to a luxury lifestyle experience. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
