Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok for great Thai hospitality

Centara Grand at Central
 Plaza Ladprao Bangkok
There is a lot to do and see in Bangkok- sightseeing, shopping, business and entertainment. Visiitos to Bangkok  need is a good hotel  to base their stay in. The five star Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok is such a hotel. It is located on the northern side of Bangkok, within the Ladprao business district and moments away from Chatuchak Park.

The hotel is one of the city’s timeless landmarks, having opened in 1983 as the first hotel within the Centara Hotels & Resorts family. It has been recently fully renovated to a modern and inviting style.

The Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok is famous for being Thailand’s very first integrated five-star hotel and shopping destination and has a reputation for attentive service, sublime dining and modern accommodations.

There are 565 rooms and suites, all recently renovated and with a bright, modern and fresh design.

There is a wide choice of accommodation, such as Deluxe and Premier Rooms, as well  Deluxe, Premium, Club, Studio, Executive and Plaza Suites.

Club Deluxe Suite
I felt right at home in my luxurious Club Deluxe Suite during my three night stay. It was very large, with 45 square metres of living space. The decor of the suite was a refreshing modern design. I enjoyed the distant city skyline views through the large windows over the city and the adjacent green Chatuchak Park

I had a good nights sleep on the plush king bed and with its comfortable mattress and luxurious bed linen. There was a seating area with a comfortable sofa and chair to relax, read or enjoy watching the large TV. For the business traveler there was plenty of workspace, with a desk and chair included in the suite.

A feature I really like was the open bathroom with both bathtub and separate shower. Its walls could be folded back so that it was so that it merged into the rest of the suite. I enjoyed soaking in my bubble freestanding bath while watching TV and drinking a cup of coffee.

Club Deluxe Suite
I made use of the complimentary wireless internet access and the other facilities provided in the suite, such as the DVD player, in-house and pay-per-view movies, docking station, IDD telephone line, individually controlled air-conditioning, minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, in-room safe and hairdryer. These all helped make my there night stay at the Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok a very pleasant hospitality experience.  I could tell that thought had been given to the layout and decor of the suite.

My Club Deluxe Suit gave me exclusive access to the Club Lounge and the many services it provided such as the three complimentary meals a day, evening cocktails and canapés and much more. I particularly enjoyed the nightly Chocolate Buffet.

With nine restaurants and bars, the hotel has a dining experience for all styles and tastes, ranging from huge international buffets through to authentic Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Italian and Vietnamese specialty restaurants, a cosy coffee corner for home-baked breads and cakes, and a dramatic rooftop venue where the night lights of Bangkok form a majestic backdrop for creative cocktails and fascinating fusion food.

Pool at Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok
I enjoyed the extensive swimming pool that was located outdoors amidst tropical gardens. Overlooking the pool was a fully-equipped fitness centre, with plenty of modern exercise equipment, a sauna, and change rooms.

The award-winning SPA Cenvaree located on the hotel’s ground floor, near the swimming pool, provides sheer pampering and absolute relaxation. There is an extensive spa menu that includes traditional aromatherapy, therapeutic massages and treatments alongside the hotel’s beauty salon. The SPA Cenvaree services are designed to either relax, rejuvenate, tone up or reinvigorate your senses. SPA Cenvaree has eight suites for singles and couples, each designed with a tranquil, urban décor. I enjoyed my Body Scrub and Aromatherapy Massage spa with tea and treats offered before and after at SPA Cenvaree. It soothingly relaxed my body and mind.
