I am lucky enough to spend 45 days every winter in Thailand.
However the high spot for me are the final three nights I spend in The Centara Grand Central Plaza, before flying home.
Its location, just 25 minutes from the international airport by one of the hotel's limo's, is just perfect for a relaxed trip to catch my flight is perfect
As the hotel is within the superbly upscale Central Plaza shopping mall, I am easily able to satisfy my retail therapy requirements.
I am able to relax and top up my tan around the huge open air pool, which is set in three acres of stunningly beautiful gardens.
I have a great gym to exercise in, and a beautiful spa to pamper myself in.
In the evenings, I have the choice ofseven great restaurants to dine in.
As I always take a club room, I breakfast on the 24th floor lounge, where I also enjoy a complimentary light lunch, followed by complimentary afternoon tea, and in the evenings I enjoy complimentary pre-supper cocktails.
The staff throughout the hotel provide standards of service equal to the finest I enjoy in any of the hotels, in any of the cities I visit throughout the world.
Truly, the high spot of my year.
I stay here for three nights every February, and every year it gets better.
It has so much going for it...
The location, midway between the two international airports, just 30 minutes from either via the hotel's excellent limousine service, and within 20 minutes of Bangkok's busy downtown, plus being situated within the first class Central Plaza mall.
Its beautiful and extensive gardens and swimming pool.
Its world-class gym and luxurious spa.
Its choice of seven fine restaurants.
Its staff, from the wonderful head doorman, who unfailingly remembers me every year upon my arrival, through reception, chambermaids, and waiting staff, all are welcoming, warm, and unfailingly helpful.
I always take a Club Room, which I recommend to achieve the full Centara Grand experience.
a rather comfortable place and nice ambience..it has some good restaurants and has a direct and connection to a mall.. a nice gym and scenic pool.. not far from the airport.. staff are nice as well.. however quite far from main town of bangkok..
Since we are working in Aviation, Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao is the best choice to stay. Near to ICAO office. Halal food available made it even meaningful. Used the gym for a quick sweat out. Didn’t get to use the sauna. Overall, a good stay. Keep it up.
This is an ideal city hotel where everything you need is very close by which is ideal in a busy city like Bangkok - huge shopping centre attached to the hotel for international brands and local food / bars both inside and close by outside.
There is nothing missing in the hotel for a luxurious stay - nice rooms, gym, pool, and many restaurants, we especially enjoyed the club lounge where the staff were the most friendly and professional we have ever met anywhere in Asia.
We will be back.
