Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20
During our recent week-long trip to Bangkok, we spent the second half of our holiday staying at Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20; one of the top family hotel in Bangkok. I love new hotels and Novotel Soi 20 (as they are fondly referred to by the cab drivers) is just celebrating their 1st year anniversary this year.
We stayed in this very beautiful and spacious Family Suite.
The amazing view of the city skyline greeted us every morning we were here.
The expansive layout of the 45 sqm Family Suite, includes a separate sleeping and living room.
LCD TV in both the room and living room
Transparent sliding door separates the room and the luxurious bathroom.
The luxurious bathroom offers both a shower and separate bathtub, with a stylish glass partition that adds to the sense of spaciousness and relaxation.
No prize for guessing which is our favourite feature here – the large bathtub. As you can see, this tub is able to fit more than the 4 of us put together. Soaking together in warm bubbly bath reminds me of our time in the famous Japanese onsen back when we were in Japan.
Every detail of this sizable bathroom spells of elegance.
The huge rain shower head makes a refreshing shower that we can’t get enough of. We had a tough time getting the kids out of the bathtub as well as the shower
I welcome the large lighted mirror and the wall mounted side mirror with much pleasure. It makes applying make-up such a breeze.
The spacious living room is fully furnished and includes a sofa bed; allowing the living area to be easily turned into a second bedroom for the kids.
Our suite comes with upgraded amenities including an espresso machine and gourmet tea selection.
Complimentary coffee and tea making facilities as well as mini bar items (chargeable to the room).
More mini bar items.
In addition to standard facilities, some of the upgraded amenities that comes with the Family Suite includes a late check-out, all day refreshments and complimentary laundry service. It also includes access to the Executive Sky Lounge on the 25th floor, which includes exclusive check in & check out, all day refreshments and 2 hours evening canapé and cocktail and more.
INFINITY SWIMMING POOL
The outdoor infinity swimming pool is located on the 9th floor of the hotel.
It includes a separate children’s swimming area.
Infinity pool with the outstanding city view.
It is nice to relax on these sun lounges in the pool.
Separate kids pool.
The pool is open daily from 6am to 10pm. It is even more amazing to swim here at dusk as the city skyline starts to light up. This photo was taken after 10pm hence the pool was dark.
The Kids Room is also located on the 9th floor of the hotel nearby the pool.

We had our breakfast daily at Food Exchange.
Located on the 7th floor, the menu includes Western dishes as well as food from all over the Asian continent.
Food Exchange is based on the concept of open cooking stations.
SKY ON 20 – ROOFTOP BAR
We managed to have dinner at Sky on 20, the rooftop bar on one of the evenings we were here.
Located on the hotel’s 26th floor above Sukhumvit soi 20, Sky on 20 offers spellbinding skyline views of Bangkok.
We were also told that we can catch a mesmerizing sunset scene here (which we unfortunately missed as we had trouble getting the boys out of the bathtub in our room).
Nevertheless we still had a great time dining and relaxing while soaking up the vibrancy of the city.
Gai Yang – Grilled Thai chicken served with sticky rice
Kor Moo Yang – Marinated Thai Style Pork Neck Steak
Parma Ham pizza
The hotel also provides complimentary tuk tuk shuttle ride to the nearby BTS station. The boys was very excited to finally get to ride on a TukTuk.
