Kid Friendly Hotel @ Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit, Thailand

We went to Bangkok during the recent festive holidays.

It was our first trip to Bangkok hence we decided to focus on only exploring places within the city that are easily accessible by their BTS skytrain or cab. We sourced for hotels nearby BTS skytrain stations and decided on Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit as it is situated right across the station.

NOVOTEL Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit
ADDRESS:
 566 Ploenchit Road, Lumpini, Patumwan, Bangkok 10330 Bangkok, Thailand

PHONE: +66(0) 2305 6000 – FAX: +66(0) 2305 6001
LATITUDE: 13.7428346 – LONGITUDE: 100.5492751

BTS Skytrain Ploen Chit station is just in front of the hotel hence going around the city is very convenient and hassle-free.

The route for the skytrain.

The boys enjoyed riding on the skytrain and even requested to go for a ride to nowhere! We sometimes go on the skytrain just for the sake of riding on one :roll:

Besides BTS Skytrain, if you are looking for some adventure, TukTuk is also easily available in front of the hotel.

Anyway, back to the hotel, we were upgraded to this gorgeous modern-style Premier Room located on the Premier Floor with Premier benefits and full access to the Premier Lounge.

Premier Room with a comfortable extra bed.

The shower screen in our room is pretty smart. It gives you total privacy with just a click of a switch.

The boys got pretty excited over this magical shower screen. With just a click of the switch, the glass switches from transparent to opaque providing full privacy on demand.

Welcome fruits, sweets and a personal note pretty much make us feel very special 

The table was also nicely set-up with chilled champagne upon our arrival.

Our room comes with an espresso machine for our coffee fix.

Complimentary Tea & Coffee making facilities.

Wide range of items in the mini bar chargeable to the room.

I don’t usually use the toiletries provided in hotels but I especially love the ones in Novotel hotels. These Fair Trade products especially the Fair Trade Shea Nut from Ghana is simply awesome!

We also appreciate that they have this separate bin for recyclable items.

Can you imagine how many plastic bottles being disposed in a hotel every day? Simple effort such as this goes a long way in preserving our Mother Nature.

We also love the lighted mirror in the bathroom. The shower comes with a refreshing rain shower head.

Our room has a large window with the vibrant city view.

The clearer view of the splendid city-scape during the day. Gorgeous isn’t it?

The large window allows for plenty of natural daylight to beautifully illuminate our room.

PREMIER LOUNGE

As guests in the Premier floor, we got our check-in and check-out done in the Premier Lounge.

Darling doing the check-in while we enjoy our welcome drinks at the Lounge.

We arrived during their Happy hour drinks and cocktails so it was just nice to grab some bites and drinks.

This was the first thing I grabbed from the spread. Miang Kham is a traditional snack from Thailand and Laos. It is a one bite snack that is filled with roasted coconut shavings, peanuts and bird’s eye chili among other ingredients. Though it means one bite snack, a bite is definitely not enough for me. I loved this spicy snack very much that I had more than a couple of bites :-)

Which do you prefer, white or red wine?

Besides traditional snacks, they also serve international selections during cocktail hours.

Enjoying red wine at the outdoor seating at the Lounge while soaking up the full vibrancy of the city.

The boys come up to the Premier Lounge every evening to drink warm milk before going to bed.

They have very good sleep throughout our stay here 

KIDS CORNER

The Kids Corner is conveniently located just next to the Lobby. The boys spent a lot of time here especially when the Daddy drops by the Concierge to get more information from the friendly staffs on the places of interest in Bangkok and how to get there.

The boys’ favourite feature at Kids Corner is this interactive Angry Bird table.

The Kids Corner is also right next to Dee Lounge so we can relax and have a drink here while keeping an eye on the boys playing.

Chilling at Dee Lounge after a long day shopping with a glass of refreshing Screwdriver cocktail.

We can also sit outdoor at Bangkok Beer Garden to enjoy our drinks with live performance but we won’t be able to watch over the kids here so I opt to remain indoor :-P

SWIMMING POOL

The outdoor infinity swimming pool is located on Level 9 surrounded by the magnificent view of the Bangkok City skyline.

Little Ayden loves this water feature in the toddler pool.

THE SQUARE

We had our breakfast daily at The SQUARE, Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit.

This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and all day snacks in between.

This modern, bright 170-seat main dining is divided into different dining cuisine zones for guests’ convenience.

A picture speaks a thousand words but a video tells you the entire story. Here is a video of our stay experience at Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit to end our post (in case you missed it at the beginning of this post).

    The magic screen of the bathroom must be expensive. You wrote such a comprehensive post on this hotel – so long. The breakfast pastries look so delicious! Your boys must be very happy to be on this holiday!

    The magic screen definitely adds a touch of luxury to the room. We really love this hotel, the room and the staffs here are very friendly. The best is the BTS Skytrain station is just several steps away so we can move around easily.
