The dining room is vast with an amazing amount of options mostly focused on seafood. This was clearly a Thai Cuisine oriented dinner, but there were some western options including pasta and cold cuts.

The dessert display was tremendous with both local Thai desserts and foreign desserts. I loved the selection of local Thai desserts, my personal favorite is Lod Chong (ลอดช่อง.) More options than I could ever consume! This evening was all about abundance. For someone that is new to Thailand this would be a great place to be introduced to Thai cuisine.

Throughout the evening, the staff were very courteous and always there to pick up dishes or to answer questions when needed. After it’s all said and done, the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse’s Praya Kitchen is quite impressive. Whether it’s the attentive staff, massive selection of food, or beautiful design of the dining room, Praya Kitchen has it all!

Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse Review: Impeccable Location

31 May 2019

The latest Marriott property I visited in Bangkok was the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse. This property has just opened recently and has a great location between the Chao Phraya River and Silom in Surawong. Actually, every 30 minutes the hotel offers a free shuttle to Sala Daeng BTS Station, how convenient! There are a lot of similarities in the room design of Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse and Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, which you can read about here.

For this stay, I secured an Executive Room with M Club Lounge access. The room had a beautiful view of the Chao Phraya River and Bangkok. The hotel was so new so it was a given that it had the most modern technology throughout! The bedding of course was very comfortable as with every other Marriott property I’ve ever visited. There was a comfortable office chair for me to work from as well which made me happy.

The bathroom was simply gorgeous and I loved that the design incorporated traditional Thai artwork. It seemed to be the same traditional scene used in many parts of the property including on the glass of the shower stall. It was a nice touch to add a little local flair without veering away from the clean and modern Marriott design. The closet was door-less with in an open design.

The Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse has already become famous for its amazing rooftop infinity pool on the 18th floor. The pool is exquisite and is gorgeous at all times of day and thus a prime spot for photos! Enjoy yourself.

The M Club Lounge access was a fantastic perk of the stay. The M Club Lounge is on the 31st floor of the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse. The club lounge offers breakfast, all day soft drinks and snacks, evening cocktail hours and hors d’oeuvres. Make sure you get there early because this lounge fills up fast with its absolutely impeccable views of the Bangkok sunset. Although the lounge was very busy during my stay, the service was actually very good!

This stay was incredibly smooth and I would of course stay there again on my next trip to the magnificence city of Bangkok! The Marriott brand tends to be so consistent, it’s hard to go wrong by visiting their properties. The unique location of this property between the metropolitan area of Silom and the relaxed Chao Phraya River gives guests a great starting point to explore the city.

Private Boat Afternoon Tea + Thai Dessert Class in Bangkok

27 May 2019

Over the years, I’ve realized that I like to focus more on local and unique activities in each destination that I spend time. During my latest trip to Bangkok, I had the pleasure of once again visiting the Riva Surya Hotel along the Chao Praya River and experiencing afternoon tea on a private boat, as well as experiencing a Thai dessert cooking class. Feel free to read about the Riva Surya Hotel in another article here.

First let’s discuss the Thai Luk Chup dessert class. Luk Chup are a Thai dessert that resemble real fruit and vegetables, made from mung beans. The class occurs indoor near the pool and offers some insight on how to make this beautiful and tasty treat. I found it very interesting to watch how mung bean paste can be painted, dipped into gelatin, and turn into works of art!

The second activity I tried at Riva Surya Hotel was the afternoon tea on the Chao Phraya River. I’ve never had afternoon tea on a small boat like this before! It was very delightful to move about the river and enjoy tasty treats and tea. The tea set was made up of both Western and Thai items.

The boat may have rocked here and there but the tea set didn’t budge! I got to observe the Rama 8 Bridge and later Wat Arun, a beautiful 360+ year old temple, before returning to the hotel’s pier. A truly memorable experience that I would be happy to try again soon!

Another year has passed, and I’ve had yet another great experience at the Riva Surya Hotel in Bangkok. The service throughout the experiences were both superb. I was happy to experience something new and unique, to spice up my life! Both the Thai Luk Chup Dessert Class and the Private Boat Afternoon Tea were lovely experiences that I would easily recommend people try while in Bangkok!

Centara Q Resort Review: Rayong Beach Paradise

21 May 2019

As you all know, there are tons of beaches to consider while visiting Thailand. Just a three hour drive from Bangkok is Rayong Province. Rayong has tons of coast line that tends to be a bit quieter, making for a more peaceful getaway than the more heavily populated tourist areas. For this trip, I had the opportunity to stay at the Centara Q Resort Rayong. Upon arrival I was greeted warmly and ushered to the reception area for an effortless check in process.

The first thing I noticed about this property was the stylish architecture. For the first two nights I stayed in a Superior Room on the seventh floor, looking out the side of the property. This room was fairly spacious with an open closet, king bed, balcony, shower stall, sleeper sofa, kettle and instant coffee, but no coffee machine.

For the last night of the stay, I tried out the Deluxe Ocean Facing room. Although the superior room was nice, the upgrade put me way more into the holiday mood, as I could see the pool. The Deluxe Ocean Facing room also had a shower with skylight and a large bathtub. Definitely a great holiday room for the entire family.

To reach the beach, guests must walk down a few flights of stairs or take a shuttle from the lobby which is always on call. I’d recommend going down the stairs because the view is gorgeous. The beach was nice and clean, and the water was warm!

The Qube Restaurant was where I ate all of my lunches and dinners during the stay at Centara Q Resort Rayong. They offer tons of Thai food as well as Western options. The restaurant sits poolside with indoor and outdoor seating. You can also sit near the beach! Everything was delicious, but obviously the Thai food was exceptionally so. Some of my favorite dishes from the stay were the som tum, larb moo, yum taley, and the fish and chips. Amazing!

Ascott Makati Manila Hotel Review: Live in Luxury

19 May 2019

My first Ascott experience was actually in Tokyo, where I had a very memorable time! Now I was visiting the Philippines and decided to try Ascott Makati Manila about a 20-30 minutes drive from the airport. Makati is one of the high-end luxury areas of Manila. Thus, in this area, you can find lots of luxury brands, shopping malls, and a wide variety of restaurants just next to the hotel. After arriving by car, I went up to the sixth floor lobby to check in.

The check in was smooth and I was escorted up to the 10th floor to see my sweet suite. Upon opening the door, I quickly realized that I had an incredible amount of space to stretch-out. In the giant living room there was stylish furniture, large television, sound system, and views form two directions. There was also a dining room with table and chairs, and a full-size kitchen! Tucked away in a closet near the entrance was a clothes washing machine. How convenient!

I was very impressed by the gym also on the 6th floor, beside the pool. Not only did they have tons of exercise machines, they also had less common pieces of equipment such as boxing and CrossFit equipment in a secondary room. Get your workout on!

Ascott Makati Manila Hotel Review: Live in Luxury Asia Blog Hotels Manila Philippines

Looking back on the stay as a whole, what really stood out at the Ascott Makati Manila was the personalized service. Every staff member truly went above and beyond to give a pleasant personal touch. One area to improve on would be the call center, as sometimes I had to wait quite a while to connect with someone. Other parts I liked were the interior design, gym, executive lounge food and drink spread, and the pool! All in all, a visit to Ascott Makati Manila is highly recommended and I would love to come back as soon as possible!

The Conrad Executive Club Lounge is located on the 29th floor of the Conrad Bangkok Hotel. This Executive Club Lounge was definitely larger than average, way larger. The Executive Club Lounge offers a very complete breakfast, afternoon tea spread from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm, and evening cocktail hour with food from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Everything was great!

One more great feature of Conrad Bangkok is it’s near proximity to Lumphini Park which is basically Bangkok’s Central Park. I’d highly recommend a visit!

The Conrad Bangkok was one of the properties that I had on my to-visit list for many years. I was so happy to experience the remodel, because the new design is impressive. There’s nothing like Thai hospitality and the Conrad truly showed how great it can be. At the end of the day, I can easily recommend a stay at the Conrad Bangkok Hotel!

Liu Restaurant Review: Delicious Chinese Food in Bangkok

18 May 2019

While staying at the Conrad Hotel in Bangkok, I had a chance to try their Liu Chinese restaurant! First of all, the decor and the feel of the restaurant was very beautiful in red and black. I was led to a private dining room to sample a tasting menu of some of the Liu’s best dishes. Obviously, I was excited! Read about my Conrad Bangkok experience here.

The meal started with several smaller items including xiao long bao, steamed shrimp dumpling with squid paste, steamed minced shrimp and scallop dumplings, and a baked duck pie with mushrooms. These were a fantastic way to start the meal! My favorite was the baked duck pie.

KiSara Restaurant Review: Top Quality Wagyu in Bangkok

18 May 2019

When on the search for high-quality Japanese food there are luckily lots of great options in the city of Bangkok, Thailand. On my annual trip to the city, I checked out the KiSara Restaurant inside of the Conrad Bangkok Hotel. Read about my hotel stay here. KiSara is very proud that they are the only supplier in Bangkok of Hida Beef which comes from Gifu Prefecture in Japan. This is a high-end beef with a grade of A5, which is the top of the top! The Japanese chef at KiSara hails from Osaka and puts his own twists on Japanese cuisine.

It was time for the main event which was the A5 Hida Wagyu. As you can tell from the photos, there is lots of marbling on this beautiful piece of meat. I enjoyed it with a small bottle of sake from the Katoukichibee Shouten Brewery. I never wanted the meat to end, but soon all the bites were gone and I was left longing for more!

Things were wrapping up but there was still Japanese fried rice that was a nice balance to everything else I had consumed.

Sheraton Manila Hotel Review: Convenient Luxury

09 May 2019

Right after touching down on the tarmac at the Manila Airport, I looked over and saw the Sheraton Manila Hotel. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hotel so near to an airport before, it’s literally just across the street. The good thing about the property is that it’s basically sound proof, as I didn’t hear planes at all during my entire stay. The Sheraton Manila Hotel had recently opened when I visited so everything was brand-new, and shiny. I was very excited to explore!

From the moment I walked into the Sheraton Manila Lobby, I was impressed by the luxurious feel. It was a pleasure interacting with the reception staff before going up to the eighth floor to check out my room. The Sheraton Manila is part of the Resorts World Manila complex and right next door to a casino and mall which makes for a lot of dining options.

The view from my room was not of the airport but of the massive pool. The room was medium-sized and very fresh and modern feeling. All of the technology was top-notch and very comfortable. I liked the colors used in the interior which fit together well and not too in-your-face. The room had a teakettle but did not have a coffee maker. I did have Executive Club Lounge access for the duration of the stay which is where I had my unlimited coffee.

My bathroom at the Sheraton Manila Hotel was a part of the room that really shined. The bathroom was very luxurious featuring a large bathtub, separated shower stall, automatic washing toilet, and a vanity that tied it all together. The shampoo smelled great!

As mentioned, my two-night stay included Executive Club Lounge access which was temporarily set up on the mezzanine floor. The Executive Club Lounge offered complimentary continental breakfast, all day soft drinks and snacks, evening hors d’oeuvres, and evening cocktails and desserts well into the evening. Alcoholic beverages from 5:30pm to 9:30pm! Also included with lounge access were the pressing of two items per day, 15 pages of complimentary printing, as well as 2 hours use of the boardroom. As the Sheraton Manila was brand-new, they were still working on completing the permanent location of the Executive Club Lounge. Regardless, the temporary lounge was still comfortable with decent food and beverage options with great service. Try a star apple! Amazing.

On the ground floor is where the standard breakfast takes place, in the massive S Kitchen Restaurant. Sheraton Manila really put on a great breakfast with many options to choose from. Since this was my first trip to the Philippines, I focused heavily on local Filipino food, and was not disappointed. All tasted great! The attentive service really made it a great experience.

During my stay I also got to experience the lunch buffet, which had a similar amount of options as breakfast, and once again, was very tasty. Just like at breakfast, I focused mostly on the local food and was very impressed with the quality. The also had a fresh ice cream making station! It was very fun to watch.

The pool and fitness center were available on the third floor of the property and were definitely the focal point of the Sheraton Manila. The pool is absolutely massive, with tons of areas surrounding it to sit and relax. If you’ve got the time, this is the place to hang out. The gym is on the modest side, but has new high-quality equipment, and looks out over the pool. When I visited, there were no steam rooms or saunas but I heard they would be finished soon.

Sheraton Manila Hotel Review: Convenient Luxury Asia Blog Hotels Manila Philippines

Overall, the Sheraton Manila is a very beautiful property, and the close proximity to the airport can’t be beat. I’m excited to come back and visit again when all of the facilities are finished. The Sheraton Manila is a gorgeous property, with great convenience, quality service, and tasty food! If the location is convenient for you, go ahead and stay the the Sheraton Manila!
