There’s nothing quite like a hotel bathroom. Between the plush bathrobes and the double sinks, marble finishings and luxe amenity kits, hotel bathrooms have something almost palatial about them that a regular loo at home can’t quite accomplish. The ceilings seem higher, the bathtubs are grander, the toilet is a throne, the view is fantastic, and, above all, the mirrors provide a most extravagant excuse to take a very glamorous #IWokeUpLikeThis mirror selfie. There’s no denying it. Interior design nerds and hotel lovers: the hotel bathroom is the place to be.

Taking our pick of Bangkok’s most stunning options, we’ve put together a list of the most intriguing hotel bathrooms about town. Whether you’re looking for some pampering inspiration for your next staycation, or simply want to find out what this hidden hype is all about, we’ve got you covered.

1

One of Bangkok’s largest hotels, it comes as no surprise that the Sky Suite bathroom at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park is here to impress. Bearing a bit of an art deco feel, the combination of black and white marble as well as the rose gold mirror details make for a room that boasts superb splendour. And whilst the stepped ceiling and the double sinks make for charming accents, the star of this bathroom is definitely that gorgeous wooden bathtub. Unexpected yet well-executed, and beautifully matched.

Possibly our favourite design hotel of the moment, there’s much to love about The Siam’s interior design concepts. Part of The Siam Suite, this bathroom bears that oriental character for which The Siam is known for, easy to pin-point from the Chinese-style cabinet and golden double sinks. Hanging lanterns and thin, vertical mirrors make the bathroom appear to have a very high ceiling. It’s definitely not a common bathroom design, yet definitely has something very cool about it.

Would our list really be complete without one of Bangkok’s most legendary hotels? The regal bathrooms at the Mandarin Oriental prove exactly why the historic riverside hotel is so beloved. A classic white bathtub sits in the middle as the crown of the room, under an elegant chandelier. Two French doors provide a peek into the outdoors, highlighted by contrasting purple curtains. Notice the interesting tile shapes and delicate wallpaper pattern? It’s all in the details here.

In line with its colonial theme, the bathrooms at The Cabochon Hotel share much of the old-world charm that roams the halls of the boutique hotel. Featuring a deep bronze bathtub within an all-white bathroom, here’s one for those who love minimalist interior design. Airy, sophisticated, and somewhat romantic, we can definitely imagine kicking back with a good book in here.

For those who love marble, this bathroom at 137 Pillars Suites Bangkok is a must-experience. From the floor to the walls, the room is decked out in white and grey marble, making for a very modern chic look. The perfectly rounded white bathtub has something of a rice bowl, or a teacup, inviting guests for a sweet pampering session. From behind the bubbles in the tub, there’s a spectacular view to be enjoyed through the floor-to-ceiling windows, too.

Like something out of Alice in Wonderland, the bathroom of this So Sofitel Bangkok suite combines whimsical charm with contemporary design. The chequered black and white floor sits in a contrast to the dark blue and black walls, most intriguingly melding with the unusually curved door frame. Modern and creative, here’s a bathroom you definitely wouldn’t forget so quickly.

W Hotels around the globe have always been noted for their artsy interiors, and the W Bangkok is no different. Calming in warm yellow hues, the very spacious bathroom is sleek and very clean in its design. The bathtub at the far end of the room, behind a glass screen and with thin shutters surrounding it, has something very private and intimate about it. A room that invites you to relax.

Whilst white and black marble are common features in countless hotels, the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok goes for the unconventional route with a full brown marble bathroom. Complemented by white and dark wooden accents, the marble lends a luxurious charm to the room that manages to look earthy and exquisite.

Letting the view speak for itself, the bathroom of the Presidential Suite at the Park Hyatt Bangkok knows that sometimes the most beautiful designs lie in simplicity. Delicate dark furniture complements the cream-coloured room, most gorgeously combined with Bangkok’s evening sky. Unwinding after a long day, something about taking a bath here tells us that you’ll always feel like the world is your oyster.
