Amari Watergate Bangkok @ Bangkok Thailand


Back in August, I traveled to Bangkok again.
I can't remember how many times I have been to Bangkok.
It almost became my second home country. #hehe
There are too many reasons to come back to Bangkok again and again.
First, the shopping experiences, the authentic Thai food, only 2 hours flight from KL, many affordable hotels etc.
Too many reasons to count!
Each time I visit Bangkok, I prefer to stay at different hotels to have different experiences.
So without any special reasons, this time I choose to stay at a 5 stars hotel, which is within the Pratunam district of Bangkok.



Amari Watergate Bangkok consider a famous hotel at the Pratunam area if you lookout from the hotel booking websites.
I usually book my hotels at Agoda.com in order to collect the points for my next holiday. #hehe
The hotel is a bit pricey than the other boutique hotels; not only because it is rated at 5 stars, but also it is conveniently close to many attractions with short walking distances.



For example, the Platinum Wholesale Mall is just located in front of the hotel, it is about 10 minutes walk to Central World Plaza and Erawan Shrine, and about 20 minutes from Siam Square and Siam Paragon.



The hotel was very busy when we arrived there.
But I have to say that the staffs are all very friendly, patient and helpful.
Some of them even give out to help us on the places we wanted to go. #thankyou





The waiting area at the lobby is spacious with relaxed ambiance.
Good for chilling together with your friends and families.



Complimentary ice-waters everyday at the lobby.





The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool on the 8th floor.



We booked the Grand Deluxe Twin Room and the room is surprisingly small.
Or maybe I expected too much? :p


Right in front of the bed, there is a TV and a working desk.
There are some famous channels are on the TV such as MTV (my most favourite when I'm on vacation), HBO, BBC, CNN, ABC Asia Pacific, Discovery etc. 
Also, the free Wifi at this hotel is good and quite stable.


A comfortable couch for you to enjoy your suppers while watching TV programs.


Not many storage is available inside the room, but the luggage rack is good enough to keep the room neat and tidy. 


Move on to the bathroom.


There is a bathtub and it is well maintained and clean.


To me, I prefer to use the shower instead of the bathtub, so it's good to have a separated single room for the shower.
Some other hotels may have bath and shower combined, which I don't like.  


Free toiletries are available at the sink area. 


Also complimentary bottled water will be refilled everyday.


We have our room with overlooking views of the city centre.


During this trip, we only ride with Uber and I think it becomes the best way to get around Bangkok.
Not to mention about the traffic in Bangkok, you just gonna have a good planning on your time to avoid the roads in Bangkok during peak hours. 
In my view, Tuk Tuk in Bangkok is fun to travel with, but I think Uber worth the money after all.


Amari Watergate Bangkok indeed a pleasant experience for us. 
It's kind of a life time experience staying in a 5 stars hotel. 
However, if you stay outside all the time with sightseeing and shopping, I would prefer to stay at the reasonable boutique hotels. 
We paid total RM1730 for 4 nights, so I think it's quite expensive.
All in all, if you are a looking for a great hotel to pamper yourself on your vacation, I would highly recommend this hotel.
