After staying in Laos for 3 weeks exploring Vang Vieng and Vientiane, we decided to go back to Bangkok again and this time to stay here for a while. Being on the road for more than 2 years now, I don't know how many times I've been to Bangkok. Whenever we miss the hustling and bustling of city life or eating cheap delicious foods, we always go to Bangkok.
On our first week in this vibrant city, we stayed in Amari Watergate Bangkok. One of the 4 Amari hotels located in and around the city. Amari Watergate is right in the heart of Bangkok's shopping district towering above neighbouring shopping complex.
The Grand Deluxe Room
Amari gave us a Grand Deluxe room on the 19th floor which is surprisingly very spacious with huge windows overlooking the amazing view of the city. It also has a nice lighting which you can also control using the control board on the side table, various plugs and outlets that don't require you to use an adaptor and a very fast and stable wi-fi connection.
Grand Deluxe Room
The room comes with a large LCD TV, DVD player, tea and coffee-making facilities, a nice sofa set and a separate working table which is perfect for bloggers or for people who needs to get some work done while on vacation.
The bathroom is equipped with toiletries, two vanity sink, a shower cubicle and a separate bathtub.
The Bed is so comfortable matched with equally comfortable pillows. I can say that it was definitely the best sleep I had had in a while. You also have the option to choose which among the 7 types of pillows they offer you want to use.
A Very Comfortable Bed
Our room also comes with a buffet breakfast and I noticed that they offer a pretty extensive choice of foods which covers many international cuisines.
The restaurant catering the breakfast is located on the 4th floor, and open from 6:00 am to 10:30 am. It has Indian section, Japanese section, Middle East section and the Western section.
Pool / Sauna / Gym
Amari Watergate in Bangkok has a beautiful landscaped garden and outdoor pool located on the 8th floor. They also have fitness center facility on this floor which includes a squash courts, table tennis, gym, sauna and steam bath.

Amari Watergate Hotel is strategically located in city center. It is adjacent to Bangkok's shopping district with easy access to Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang Airport. In fact, just across Amari you can find the Platinum Fashion Mall and the Pratunam Center. A few meters away from the hotel, you can find the big malls in Bangkok like Central World Plaza, Isetan, Siam Paragon, MBK.
All the means of transportation like BTS, MRT, Bus and even the Water Taxi are very close to the hotel. Providing an easy access to move around Bangkok if you want to.
Staff and Hospitality
The staff were very approachable, attentive, polite and willing to help. Even the room cleaners always gave me a very sincere smile every time we see each other in the hallway.
I really had a great time in Amari Watergate Bangkok and enjoyed my short stay here. A great way to start new experiences in this vibrant city of Thailand.
