As I travel quite often for work, I’m going to keep a record of all the hotels I’ve stayed in, to serve as a reminder of what works and what doesn’t. It’ll make future bookings much easier.
Location: Near Suvarnabhumi airport. There’s absolute nothing within walking distance of the resort. The closest is Mega Bagna mall which is about a 10-15min drive away, but the good thing about this mall is its humongous! Its where local families hangout, so if you’d like to experience the local family life, head there.
Room: Spacious with tiled floors. The bed is quite comfortable and that’s important for a good nights sleep. The bathrooms are partitioned with sliding doors, so you can open the partition doors and have one massive room + integrated bathroom. One minor issue is that the universal sockets are situation abit too low to the table, so if you have a Samsung/Apple phone charger, you may have some trouble getting the correct charging angle as the USB connects at the bottom of the charge head.
Gym: Fantastic view of the golf course when you’re on the treadmill or elliptical (keeps me motivated!) Well equipped with free weights, and good range of upper body machines.
Breakfast: Standard offer, omelette (with an interesting local spin), local food, random dimsum and noodle soup. I noticed that there are many tourists from China and Korea at breakfast.
Other note worthy amenities: An indoor Kids Club for the little ones to play. Summit Windmill Golf Course just next door and it’s around THB3600-3800/game, which is rather steep IMO. Although I saw many flights of Japanese golfers, could be their regular place.
Would I return? Yes, as it’s convenient for my business trips (avoiding the city traffic), unless I have most of my meetings in the city.
