If you are looking for a luxury respite conveniently close to one of Bangkok’s most important business districts, Sathorn-Silom, the Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok is a dream come true for either short-stay retreats or a longer stay, city resort living.
A very private, tropical enclave, the residence comprises seven buildings nestled around a lush garden with tantalising, shimmering swimming pool as its centrepiece on Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra 24.
A member of the 5-star Chatrium Hotels & Residences group, which includes the Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok, this residence offers the same very high-end comforts and conveniences that all their properties are renowned for.
The residence provides guests with a selection of eight accommodation, beginning with a well-appointed 45m2 studio with fully equipped, modern pantry and plush bathroom stocked with premium toiletries, ideal for a short escape from the stress of the city.
For longer stays, the residence offers 70m2 one-bedroom and 140 m2 two- and three-bedroom suites, deluxe and grand deluxe. Their living spaces are plush and feature a dining table, desk, high-speed wi-fi, satellite television and an even larger, more stylish kitchen facilities than the studio as well as a washing machine. The very chic bedrooms offer a selection of twin and double beds beyond comfortable with high thread-count linen, pillow cases and down duvets.
When it comes to dining, guests can choose from different packages of a vast menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring Spanish fusion selections served at the 4th-floor Albricias created by Chef Joan Tana Dot, or prepare their own favourite dishes in their rooms with the provided kitchenware.
There is also the Flow Oasis Pool Lounge, an ideal place to meet for a drink or something light to nosh on while relaxing. If you have children, the forest-theme, 1.5m deep swimming pool as well as the adjacent kids’ pool offer a great place for them to meet friends and play.
For those interested in keeping fit, the Chatrium Residence has a fully equipped fitness centre staffed by licensed personal trainers with a complete set of cardio exercise equipment and weights. Guests as well as outside gym members can schedule their own one-on-one sessions as well as join classes in yoga and boxing. Then, to rejuvenate your sore muscles, there is, of course, a spa and men’s and women’s saunas.
In addition, the Chatrium Residence includes ultra-modern meeting, conference and reception facilities that can accommodate up to 150 persons, and if you want to get somewhere fast without driving, the residence is conveniently close to the BRT Thanon Chan station that gives you quick access to the BTS at Chong Nonsi station. All in all, the Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok is an ideal oasis in this dynamic Thai capital.
