I lived in Thailand for three years and at that time I never knew that this hotel existed! This is mostly because the hotel is in a hidden oasis in the middle of this bustling metropolis. I’m speaking of U Sathorn hotel in Bangkok, Thailand.
The U hotel is located in Sathorn, which is the financial district of Bangkok. To get to the hotel, you’ll need to go down a very small street which is mixed with residential and a few commercial buildings. I really had no idea that a beautiful oasis was just moments away. Arriving at the property feels like you’re driving up to a private mansion. There is a huge green landscape in the middle and the lobby is open-air. Just through the lobby, you can view the magnificent pool which I was able to get some beautiful photos of during the night.
While speaking with the staff, I was able to learn some very interesting facts about their service. Firstly, whenever you check-in you’ll get to checkout 24 hours later at the exact time that you checked in. This means you could check in at 8pm and then checkout at 8pm the following day. This is quite convenient depending on your schedule. Another feature I thought was interesting, was the fact that you can have your breakfast delivered anywhere on the property. They serve breakfast in the restaurant until 10:30am but if that doesn’t fit your schedule, you can opt to have it delivered in your room in the afternoon if you’d would like.
After checking in, I headed it up to have a lunch at their J’Aime restaurant where they offer a really nice set menu for lunch. I was able to also enjoy dinner there and I’ll talk about the experiences more thoroughly in a separate article.
After lunch I went to my room to see if the living spaces matched the beauty of the property. Like some other hotels I’ve been in recently, the room had a beach house/villa type feel which is really perfect when you want to be in the vacation mindset. The design is very clean and modern but has a very strong element of luxury.
I was really impressed by the quality of construction, especially in the bathroom. Whoever built this did a wonderful job and you can really tell by how all of the components of the room work. Just a very solid feeling throughout. I always notice details like these and will definitely mention them when I come across them. It’s little things like these which set hotels apart from the competition.
I was talking about the pool earlier so I really need to showcase these beautiful photos. I was able to capture the beautiful lighting and sky. The property also possesses a small gym with very high-quality equipment. I thoroughly enjoyed it and used it often.
The food is all prepared in their French restaurant, which I mentioned earlier, J’Aime. This basically guarantees that you will enjoy the food. It goes without saying that all of the bread and pastry items were fantastic. They have a wide variety of items on their à la carte menu as well as a beautiful buffet where you are sure to find something you will enjoy. The first breakfast I opted for were the Eggs Royale and the second day I went for the chocolate French toast. Both were absolutely beautiful and bursting with flavor, I highly recommend both.
This little tropical oasis visit was needed and a nice change. U Sathorn hotel offers some very interesting features that differentiate them from other properties in the same market. Whether it’s the fact that you can get your food delivered anywhere for breakfast or that you can checkout depending on your schedule, it’s all very unique and special. My experience at the hotel was flawless and if you’re looking for something a little different but also very high-end, I highly recommend you visit U Sathorn in Bangkok, Thailand!
