Bangkok is an incredibly vibrant city with so much to see and do, and with different areas of the city having their own unique vibe. Sukhumvit, Sathorn, Thonglor & along the Chao Phraya River are all fun places to stay and explore. But, if your idea of an ideal vacation also includes shopping, then there is nowhere better to be than the Pratunam area of Bangkok, and there isn’t a better hotel to stay at than the 5-star Amari Watergate Bangkok.
The 34 story Amari Watergate Bangkok is located across the street from the wholesale Platinum Fashion Mall. With over 2,000 shops, it takes more than a day to see it all. Walk a little further and you are at the entrance to CentralWorld, the largest lifestyle shopping complex in Southeast Asia. Follow the skywalk a little further and you are at Siam Paragon one of Thailand’s most luxurious shopping malls.
Upon entering the Amari Watergate, you are welcomed by a sleek open atrium lobby awash with warm earth tones. At its heart, streams of light cascade from an impressive hanging sculpture composed of 847 pieces of individually and crafted Murano glass. Titled ‘Water of Life’, this art installation is reminiscent of falling rain, a nod to the hotel’s location at the confluence of the city’s most revered canal and the significance of water to Thai culture.
