You lay back on your long-tail boat, totally relaxed, as it winds its way down the Chao Phraya River towards your destination – Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok.
Your boat arrives at the hotel. With a warm smile, the porter leads you to your room. You are enchanted by what you see. The luxurious room has a Thai-inspired dÃ©cor with high ceilings, chandeliers and spacious balconies offering memorable views of the Chao Phraya River. Silk and teak finishings add an elegant touch.
Your eyes close gently in the relaxing whim of the boat and you recall all the day,™s wonderful activities. Shopping at shiny malls, charming boutiques and open-air markets. Visiting the Grand Palace and marvelling at its magnificent architecture and intricate designs. Breathing in the aroma of street food as tuk tuks zoom around you. Watching saffron-robed monks bow low before giant Buddhas in serene temples.
It is time for dinner and you head back to the hotel,™s Salathip Restaurant, where you settle into a traditional Thai teak pavilion. Graceful Thai dancers perform while you enjoy cuisine prepared with fragrant spices.
Now for something which you,™ve been looking forward to all day. You check into the hotel,™s multiple award-winning CHI, The Spa, at Shangri-La. You indulge in the Tsangpo Ritual, which includes the signature CHI Balance Massage to quiet the mind, balance the energy and invigorate the senses.
As you lay in the spa suite relishing the feeling of utter bliss, you feel truly grateful for all the pleasures you,™ve experienced today. And it all began at the exquisite Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok.
