The carefully considered layout of the hotel is complemented by myriad thoughtful touches, which have each been designed to reflect the personalised, intuitive service offered on every floor of Tower Club: the complimentary in-suite check-in service, soft drink minibar, Wi-Fi and LAN connections, 24-hour concierge and front desk services, extensive pillow menu and in-room Nespresso machines that are included as standard with every booking each guarantee a smooth experience, from check-in to checkout.
Guests at Tower Club are also invited to visit the famed Café Mozu, which serves authentic Lebanese, Indian, Thai and Western dishes by the hotel’s poolside. The restaurant has become well known throughout the city for its exceptional daily breakfast buffet, which comprises more than 120 international specialities. Many guests are drawn to the pool itself, however, which provides a tropical oasis in the heart of bustling Bangkok. Overlooking its waters, guests can find the hotel’s fitness centre, which offers a range of first-rate cardiovascular and weight training equipment, along with the sauna and steam room. This area provides business travellers in particular with a dedicated space for focusing on their health and wellbeing so they are able to maintain their usual fitness regimes while abroad.
While all Tower Club suites are fully equipped to allow visitors to conduct business at any hour, the hotel’s own state-of-the-art business centre on the 51st floor provides additional solutions and support for visiting executives, including personalised secretarial facilities, mail services and the use of small conference rooms for up to 12 people. For meetings in a more relaxed setting, however, Tower Club guests may use the exclusive Tower Club Lounge, which is open daily and offers outstanding skyline panoramas in an intimate setting. With complimentary Wi-Fi access and meals served throughout the day, the lounge is able to accommodate any kind of social meeting, business lunch or post-conference drinks.
Dining in the sky
The golden dome that sits atop the hotel is home to The Dome at lebua, Bangkok’s highest and most coveted dining and drinking destination. At The Dome, guests can find the world’s highest alfresco restaurant, Sirocco, as well as Mezzaluna, Sky Bar, Distil and Breeze on nearby floors. All of these venues offer exceptional dishes and drinks, providing a luxurious and truly world-class destination for business gatherings as well as intimate dinners.
Breeze can be found on the 52nd floor. Offering innovative Asian dishes presented by the award-winning master chef Sam Pang, the restaurant is already making tracks across the rest of the world: a second Breeze by lebua opened its doors in Frankfurt in September 2015, while a third location in Philadelphia is currently being sourced. Sirocco, meanwhile, is The Dome’s signature Mediterranean dining venue, offering truly exceptional views and stunning cuisine from the hotel’s 63rd floor. Mezzaluna, lebua’s fine dining restaurant, boasts an unbroken halo of floor-to-ceiling windows, providing mesmerising panoramas of the city, along with masterful Japanese dishes with a twist of French haute cuisine, from the 65th floor.
Whether before or after dinner, lebua’s concierge will always recommend a drink at Sky Bar: with a post-modern, multi-hued island bar and its own signature cocktail, the Hangovertini – created specially for the cast of The Hangover Part II during filming in Bangkok – the bar is usually filled with guests late into the evening. However, the hotel’s Distil bar and lounge is where the real mixology magic happens: tantalizing new cocktails with unique flavours and textures are complemented by oysters, caviar, sushi, sashimi and Havana cigars for a truly first-rate experience.
With a wide choice of function rooms, ranging from daytime conference chambers to expansive ballrooms designed to be reminiscent of Imperial Europe, every event at Tower Club is guaranteed to be memorable and truly one of a kind. Exceptional event catering is on offer from the restaurants at The Dome, while spectacular city and river views, handpicked flower arrangements, winding staircases and lavish chandeliers help to create a timeless, elegant ambience. State-of-the-art technology, accompanied by the hotel’s dedicated and experienced event management team, round off each and every event to perfection.
The tower’s crowning glory is its State Room, located on the 67th floor. Its 360-degree ring of floor-to-ceiling windows provides sweeping views of the city that cannot be found elsewhere, creating a truly one-of-a-kind venue. The Pundarika Grand Ballroom, meanwhile, offers the perfect balance of luxury and flexibility through three spacious function rooms that may be combined or divided, providing tailor-made receptions and gala dinners that can host from 300 to 1,000 guests. Throughout these rooms, classical décor and warm colours create a venue that glows with grace and sophistication, while in the atrium a vast crystal chandelier takes centre-stage.
Other luxurious alternatives include Pushkara Ballroom, which may also be divided into three smaller units, each of which offers sweeping river panoramas. Padma Ballroom, meanwhile, is perfect for smaller seminars and more intimate business meetings once divided, and is ideal for larger conferences at its full size. Angarika Ballroom, with its stunning chandelier, provides charm and an old-world, European elegance, while the spacious and beautifully decorated Aravinda room is ideal for larger social celebrations.
