One of the things we miss the most since the pandemic happened is traveling. While other countries have already started opening to foreign visitors, we’re still dreaming of the day when satisfying our wanderlust would be as free as it used to be.
And with several new hotel establishments opening around the world, it further fuels our desire to return to our traveler lifestyles. When we finally find ourselves hopping aboard the next flights to Asian cities like Bangkok, Saigon, and Tokyo, trust that you’ll find us in these luxury establishments that redefine what hospitality means.
Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok
One of the first countries we’re headed to soon will be Thailand—and a stop to its capital Bangkok will always be on the agenda. Opening on May 19, the new Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok will be greeting visitors in elegantly appointed studios and one-bedroom apartments, as well as other amenities to enjoy.
Guests may enjoy the outdoor swimming pool, fitness center, sauna, two meeting venues, lobby bar, restaurant, as well as a Residence Lounge during their stay. Oakwood also enhances the hospitality landscape surrounding the iconic Chao Phraya River and offers an elevated experience for guests seeking a residential stay.
Located a short distance away from Asiatique The Riverfront, a famed open-air mall by the river, as well as ICON SIAM, one of the largest shopping malls in Asia, its strategic location boasts of a hassle-free and easy staycation within the beloved Asian city.
