I am travelling with my family throughout South East Asia for several months and over the course of time, I am starting to miss some of my home comforts. I am referring to space, modern kitchens and doors that allow me to have some privacy. So it is nice to have experienced the Sathorn Vista Bangkok Marriott Executive Apartments, which are five-star luxury apartments situated in the heart of Bangkok’s business district.
Fully Serviced Suites
These executive apartments offer apartment-style living combined with the full services you can expect at a hotel. Many people staying here are working or visiting Bangkok for a long stay, which can be a few weeks all the way to years. In fact, I joined the long term residence Christmas party and found that the longest staying guest was there for more than 3 years. You can also stay for one or two days as I did. Sathorn Vista offers travellers services like grocery shopping, daily upkeep and upon request an array of luxurious services specific for the individual.
When I entered the reception area I was greeted by a simple, clean open-spaced modern room. There is a residents lounge in where long-stay clients can meet up or if I wanted to have a business meeting or catch up with friends, this was the perfect environment to do so. In the morning this room services breakfast for long term residents only.
I stayed at a two-bedroom luxury suite with two bathrooms overlooking the heart of Bangkok. This view is really brilliant to watch all the traffic and understand the electric atmosphere this city has to offer. The kitchen offers top appliances and is well supplied for cooking and entertaining guests if I chose too. The granite service is of high quality and it has a microwave oven and a dishwasher which is fantastic. Behind closed wooden doors, there is a washing machine and dryer of a high standard which is very useful too. This was followed by a vacuum cleaner if I was up for cleaning, but once again the hotel offers a daily cleaning service.
The spacious lounge and furnishing are why my stay was very comfortable. There was a dedicated working desk alongside a dining table with very comfortable seating options. Therefore the space overall is functional, practical and spacious. The huge TV which is one of three allocated in the apartment was a warm welcoming to catch up on some of my favourite TV series.
The bedrooms are spacious and have lots of natural light. The bed is big and the bed linen is lovely to sleep in with plenty of pillows to make my sleep a very cosy one. In the master bedroom, there was an ensuite which was large and I loved how my bath was overlooking the city. It’s wonderful at night to soak up some city lights and actions without the noise. There was another dedicated working desk here too once again making my stay very practical.
The second bedroom which has a queen-size bed was also very cosy and has a second bathroom which is separate. This is very good for those outside guests wanting to join me. In the corridor, there is also a separate large extra storage room for my luggage and anything I wanted to tuck away including iron and an iron board.
The suites all have hard enduring wooden flooring which is well maintained and give an overall lovely ambience. The artwork throughout the suites and the hotel is modern and has a feeling of being away from home.
Just a stone throw away within the building is a cafe called MOMO, which has a variety of food for all the guests. This is where breakfast is served and it is a great way to get the day started. For me, that starts with a coffee and in Thailand, that means an iced latte, which the cafe does to perfection. Besides coffee, there are a lot of beverage options to choose from including plenty of fresh juices. The food is fresh and well presented which reminds me that I am actually in a hotel without knowing it.
I also dined at the MO MO Cafe which was a seafood buffet which runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there were plenty of food options which catered for all sorts of pallets including non-seafood. The atmosphere was wonderful and the staff made us feel like family. MOMO was packed and fully booked so make sure you reserve.
On the 5th floor, there is a huge outside pool, jacuzzi and a smaller kids pool. Do not get turned of by the green colour as it is the tiles that are green. For refreshments, there is a bar and for the gym fanatics, there is a fully equipped gym and sauna. For smaller kids, there is also a kids club.
The Marriott Executive Apartments is located in a fabulous street which offers plenty of wining and dining around. Just next to these apartments is the Australian embassy and therefore the street also offers, plenty of cafe opportunities and very funky eating places to cater to the expat community. There are plenty of places to get your hair done as well as Spa treatments and the prices vary. The street has a great atmosphere at night and there is also a market where fresh produce is sold daily. If you choose not to cook, the food here is endless.
I met a lot of long-stay clients here who speak very highly of the service, staff and these luxury apartments. Thanks for making us feel welcome and we had a great stay.
