Thanks a lot for this topic card where I have to talk about a hotel I have stayed in. It was about four years ago and I had to pay a visit to Thailand for a short training to develop my working skills. It was a government-funded course. I was lucky to be selected because this course offered me some opportunities and facilities which were completely free. So, I went to Thailand’s capital Bangkok and stayed in the famous Banyan Tree Hotel in South Sathon Road, Bangkok. I’m going to describe it now.
The Banyan Tree Hotel was pretty nice looking with state-of-the-art facilities. I stayed there because I had no choice at all. It was selected by the government officials who were dealing with our course. We were 15 trainees and all of us had to stay there. Actually, before going to Thailand, I had no idea about the hotel experience I would have. Reaching there, I felt quite amazed. It was a humongous hotel with spa facility. It had 325 guestrooms, 6 restaurants, 3 bars, a full-service spa, fitness center, outdoor pool, air conditioning facilities. The place looked dazzling with excellent designs. I really enjoyed the interior design of every place I’ve been in the hotel. The room I was placed had a beautiful blue-color décor with air conditioning. It had a big glass window and though it I could enjoy the stunning view of Bangkok.
The foods in the restaurants were absolutely delicious. I enjoyed all kinds of Thai foods. Actually, I liked the rice dishes so much that I could eat voraciously. I also liked the noodles and Tom Kha Kai (Chicken in Coconut Soup). I even collected the recipe for some Thai foods. I also got a 24-hour room service and free wifi. I would never forget the room service because the people work there, are professionals yet extremely outgoing. They were very friendly and helpful too. When I had none to talk to, I could chat with those lovely people. I also enjoyed all other services by the hotel.
One other thing that I liked about the hotel was the Yoga classes it offered. I have some back problem and actually, it was Banyan Hotel where I fixed it without any consultation with the doctors. They provided me with the excellent yoga classes and fitness center accessibility for my complete stay at the hotel and the exercises healed my pain completely. It was an amazing experience. All these services have made this hotel special to me. I would recommend all people to pay a visit to the hotel to experience the service they provide.
This is the end of the answer.
