If you are travelling through Bangkok and wondering where to stay, we can recommend the Pullman Bangkok King Power. Our top tip for accommodation in Bangkok is “chose your location well”. The Pullman Bangkok King Power ticked all our boxes for luxury, location, a Spa, gym and swimming pool. Ideally, located a few minutes walk from the Victory Monument on the BTS Line the Pullman Bangkok King Power offers travellers a luxurious and tranquil stay.
Bangkok is one of our favourite destinations check out our article on our reasons why we love it so much.
You can tell the vibe of a hotel the minute you arrive and are greeted warmly by the Concierge and the staff at Reception. A welcome ‘shot’ of a very healthy carrot juice cocktail livened us up after a 9-hour flight from Sydney. Our check-in was smooth, efficient and quick.

Restaurants and Bars
After a very comfortable night’s sleep, we headed to the Cuisine Unplugged restaurant for breakfast.
Over the years we have experienced many hotel buffet breakfasts and we can honestly report that breakfast here at the Pullman Bangkok King Power could be rated our #1. With an emphasis on ‘healthy living’ the buffet offered the “Active Breakfast” covering four themes of:
- Age Defense
- Energy Boost
all ready to start your day out in a healthy wellbeing way. Of course, we wanted the lot!
The buffet stations consisted of fresh fruit, juices, pastries, salads, cheeses, Asian and Western dishes. We must mention also the great coffee that is served.
A nice personal touch was a staff member offering croissants at the table, we don’t normally experience that in a buffet.

To Travel Too Tip:
The Pullman Bangkok King Power regularly have promotions on their website for their restaurants, Spa services etc. To find out the latest promotions click here.
One of our favourite areas in the Pullman Bangkok King Power is The Junction. Located right beside the Reception area, The Junction is a popular area for meetings, coffee, snacks and if you need a co-working space this is perfect with individual areas sectioned off with comfortable lounge chairs and fast Wifi.
To continue the hotel’s theme of healthy living we suggest you try some of their specialty healthy juices and their healthy wraps available for lunch.
We got the ‘word’ that the best macaroons in Bangkok were to be found at the Pullman Bangkok King Power. Our source had insider knowledge and coming from France could be very biased. As we left the hotel we were gifted a ‘box’ of these very special delights and can report that we were very glad we got the inside ‘nod’. The macaroons are an excellent gift to take back home (that is if they last that long).
The hotel has created a zen-like atmosphere with very high ceilings, large windows that overlook their new to be opened Signature Restaurant (more about this later) and exotic interior decor.
The Glen Bar is open from 18.00 – 01.00 hours daily and is rated one of the best bars in Bangkok. Creative lighting and design gives a very hip vibe and coupled with the latest innovative cocktail and Thai cuisine to enjoy whilst listening to live music it is a perfect night out in Bangkok.
If enjoying unique Japanese cuisine in a bohemian style restaurant is what you would like to experience, Tenshino is the place for you. Some of their signature dishes are:
- Waygu beef tartar with caviar and crispy leek nests
- Hokkaido scallops with blanched and roasted cauliflowers
- Veal sweetbread with yuzu kosko and roasted eggplant
- Fettuccini with sea urchin
- Maine lobster with Bordier seaweed butter
Just head to the 2nd floor for this experience.
The Pool Bar is perfect for that relaxing drink or two after a day of sightseeing or business meetings. We loved the intoxicating aromas of the frangipani trees around the bar whilst enjoying a cocktail or two.
For those of you who enjoy the services of the Executive Lounge, you will not be disappointed at the Pullman Bangkok King Power. A great view whilst enjoying complimentary breakfast and the evening cocktail hour.
Watch This Space – A Unique Dining Sensation is Soon To Open
We were intrigued by the open space beyond The Junction in the courtyard of the hotel. We found out that ‘the yet to be named’ restaurant will be one of its kind in Bangkok. Opening from 1800 to 2200 nightly the private 10 seat restaurant will be serving the latest innovative Japanese cuisine according to what is available at the market and that means to the diner a new menu every day.
Pullman SPA – One experience you have to enjoy
With so many options for a unique spa experience at the Pullman Bangkok King Power, it was hard to make a choice on what massage to enjoy.
Duncan chose the Tonic Aroma Massage where you have a choice of essential oils. This massage is perfect for pain relief.
Jane chose the Age Defense – Coconut Body Exfoliation – moisturizes and refreshes with the use of exfoliating coconut husks and ground coconut shells.
An extensive SPA menu is on offer from:
- Wake Up Treatments
- Day Time Treatments
- Evening Treatments
- Express Treatments
- Slimming and Anti-Aging Treatments

We were delighted with the attention to detail of the staff in all food and beverage areas, housekeeping and at the Reception.
The 11-year-old hotel was renovated 2 years ago and has in total 21 suites, 354 bedrooms and 20 meeting rooms. The newly constructed Eternity Daylight Ballroom is unique in design with an interior open kitchen and vehicle access, perfect for the launch of new products.
We would definitely return to the Pullman Bangkok King Power on our next visits to Bangkok.
