Overlooking Bangkok from Novotel Platinum Pratunam5:39 AM
A global city's pride is its skyline. That picture of skyscrapers upstaging each other is the ultimate exhibit of a city's battle for economic progress. Like its neighbors Hong Kong, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok has also something to be proud of. And we booked the perfect place to watch the showdown of sun, glass and steel with a refreshing bottle of wine.
Novotel Bangkok Platinum Pratunam's Bar 9 is the center of all the action. Here, you'll see more buildings than people. It is not a huge place but you'll pretty much get the view you need to kick back after a day of sight-seeing around the city. As an add-on, at the other side of the 9th floor balcony where Bar 9 is located, is the pool which also offers another breathtaking view of the city.
You'll have a full list of different types of wines to choose from and taste as you wait for sunset. From champagne and sparkling wines, to white and red, rose and dessert wines, you are going to deal with a menu with a wide selection. They also have snacks and entrees that you can order; Crab Croquette, Pad Thai Spring Roll, Grilled Tiger Prawns and even a seafood basket. (Click here to view the menu.)
If you wanna go inside your room but would still want the Bangkok's skyline as your stay's backdrop, there's no problem. Almost all of Novotel Platinum's 283 rooms have its own stunning view of the city. It's up to you to choose between a Standard Room, Superior Room, Deluxe, Executive Room or the Executive Suite.
The Standard Room is not that loyal to its name actually. It offers more than comfort. It is equipped with a large double bed, a rain shower, a work area, an LED TV, a mini bar and reliable internet connection for a maximum occupancy of 2 people and 1 child. The room is spacious and well-designed, you can pretty much enjoy a glass of wine with the same atmosphere as you have in Bar 9. Maybe, just a little more intimate and private.
If you want more luxury, the Executive Suite will not be shy to pamper you. It has a separate lounge area and a stand-alone bathtub. Again, more wine moments! It is three times the size of a Standard Room of course with its own coffee maker and iPod docking station for music. It has access to the exclusive Premiere Lounge at the 23rd floor, where you can take breakfast away from the rest of the hotel guests and have complimentary refreshments from 6 AM to 11 PM.

What else is there to see in Novotel Bangkok Platinum Pratunam? Your food cravings can be satisfied in the Square Restaurant which we will be blogging separately. Ongoing is the River Prawn Buffet Promotion for only 999 THB per person which I am so excited to talk about on the next blog! Also on the 6th floor is the Platinum Lounge, which offers another picturesque skyline view of Bangkok.
There is somethin I don't wanna miss mentioning - Novotel Bangkok Platinum Pratunam's location. The hotel itself is on the same building as the Platinum Mall, which is one of the best go-to malls in Bangkok for some affordable shopping. The hotel is in Bangkok's shopping mecca, being surrounded by Central World Shopping Center, Siam Square, MBK and the Pratunam market. You'll have your choice of 3 BTS stations too for easy access.
Consider your hotel problems solved. I think I just provided you the perfect place for your next Bangkok adventure. :)
