Review:Full review of the amazing Okura Prestige in Bangkok - "One of the best hotels we’ve stayed at"

Published: May 21, 2019

Two days filled with fantastic experiences! Breathtaking rooftop infinity pool, luxurious rooms and a lovely rooftop restaurant/bar. A must visit when in Bangkok!

The Okura Prestige Bangkok

The Okura Prestige is a luxurious 5-star hotel located in the central parts of Bangkok. A stylish and classic hotel with inspiration from Japan. Everything from service, facilities, restaurants and rooms are top notch here.

Here’s our full review of one of our favorite hotels of all time:

THE ROOFTOP INFINITY POOL

One of the most luxurious rooftop pools in Bangkok. It’s exclusive for hotel guests and up here you can find sun loungers and sofas to chill out in while gasping out over the Bangkok skyline and the skyscrapers close by. The view is fantastic!

Like always with rooftop pools, its advisable to get up early in the morning to catch the sunrise. Not only will you have the swimming pool for yourself, but you’ll also get some amazing pictures when the sun rises between the skyscrapers. By far the best time of day to be here.

During daytime it can be a little more crowded and sometimes hard to find a sunbed. The pool is quite long and can be used for swimming in. And for the lazy ones, you can just lay and rest on the edge of the pool while looking down on the street or over the horizon.

THE ROOFTOP BAR AND RESTAURANT

The rooftop bar called Up & Above Bar at Okura Prestige works like a big balcony with grand views over the skyline and sunset. On the terrace you’ll find large and comfy lounge sofas and some classic bar stools and tables. Perfect place to unwind with some cocktails and bar bites.

If you like to sit inside there’s a large restaurant area just inside the terrace, with panoramic views. And the food served here is fantastic! Superb Thai food made to perfection. We can really recommend the “pork balls” if you decide to eat here. Yummy!

Of course, the food can be served on the terrace as well. It’s hard to find a better place for a rooftop dinner or some evening cocktails. The only downside was that it wasn’t that much people up here. Sometimes we had the whole terrace for ourselves which felt a little to calm and isolated. But maybe that depended on the temperature being close to 40 degrees.

THE HOTEL

From the minute we sat our foot in the lobby until we left the hotel, we had one of our best hotel experiences of all time. The Okura Prestige was fantastic in every way you can imagine.

The rooms are luxurious, spacious and with a great interior. And not to mention the view. Panoramic skyline views over the city and surroundings. We were lucky to get a corner room with great views.

Every little detail was well thought off. You even get your own kimono to use during the visit. And those small details with delivery of fruit, cakes etc. to the room with no extra charge.

And for breakfast you can choose from 3 different places and types of breakfast. A Japanese breakfast in the Michelin starred restaurant called Yamazato, an international breakfast at Up & Above Bar and a special buffet if you have access to the club lounge.

As we only stayed here for one night, we had to choose one of them. And our vote fell on the Japanese one. It was great. Fresh, authentic and tasty. Just wished we had stayed some more nights so that we could try the other ones as well.

CONCLUSION

The Okura Prestige is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The rooftop pool, rooftop bar, rooms, service, food, interior etc. were all top notch. The Japanese touch can be seen a lot which also gives the hotel a great feeling and authentic atmosphere.

We can recommend everyone visiting Bangkok to stay here for at least one night. It’s worth every penny!
