Presidential suites, despite their name, aren't just for heads of state. Often regarded as the most luxurious and best accommodation in a hotel, a presidential suite usually features opulent decors, beautiful artworks, and spacious, lavish bedrooms and bathrooms.
Even more, it's known for the privacy and security it accords its guests, and can come with personal concierge services, and a different, more discreet access to elevators and the exit or entrance, making this the perfect suite for the president and their entourage, members of the royalty, celebrities, heads of companies, and more.
If you value privacy and security, and can spare no expense, here are five lavish presidential suites in Bangkok you should check out.
The Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River offers itself as a riverside urban oasis in the middle of the bustling city. It's the perfect destination for a staycation without leaving one's home, with a slew of restaurants and bars, infinity pools, a wellness centre, and lavish accommodations to ensure you can unwind and recharge. If you want to relax in luxury, there's the Four Seasons' Riverfront Penthouse, its most lavish accommodation and its version of the presidential suite, that features three capacious bedrooms with picturesque river views and high ceilings, a rooftop terrace, and a private pool.
