Bathtubs in Bangkok hotels
Bangkok trips aren’t just about floating markets and affordable steals – after a full day of madcap shopping sprees, it’s all about getting the best possible R&R that your hotel can offer. My choice of overseas indulgence has always been lounging in a good ol’ bathtub for hours on end. Pair it with some room service and the evening’s all set.
The following list includes BKK hotels that offer the most relaxing bathtub experiences, in fairly affordable accommodations. You’ll find tubs with multi-jet systems, outdoor tubs, and even tubs placed right next to your bed!
1. K Maison – From $74/night
The hotel facade of K Maison at night may make the hotel appear more foreboding than it actually is, but make your way in and you’ll find that its interior is quite the opposite. Inside the hotel, it’s an all-white affair.
Its Marble Suite is sophistication personified – the “marble” itself refers to the room’s bathroom section that’s lit by a window wall overlooking lush greenery. A bath in the clawfoot tub is sure to give you a taste of the high life, without costing too much.
In keeping with the all-white theme, expect your stay at the hotel – from the moment you step into the lobby to your room – to be a plush, effervescent one, with accommodation starting from $74 per night.
Where: 116/17-21 Rangnam Road, Phyathai, Ratchathewi District, Bangkok 10400
Phone: +66 2 245 1953
2. Swissotel Le Concorde – From $111/night
Like its Singapore counterpart, Swissotel Le Concorde boasts a super accessible location that’s near tourist havens like The Street Ratchada Shopping Mall and Suan Lum Night Bazaar, all located around Rachadapisek Road.
The real star of this hotel is this magnificent whirlpool tub – one that’s fit for royalty. A quick dip in one of these and you’ll never want to step out of its bubbly, warm waters. It’s a jacuzzi-bathtub hybrid, essentially what spa-induced dreams are made of.
It doesn’t hurt that the bathroom also comes with an unmatched view of the cityscape. From $111, rooms here cost slightly higher than others on this list, but the experience is worth the extra bucks.
Where: 204 Ratchadapisek Road, Huay Kwang, Bangkok 10320

3. LiT BANGKOK Hotel – From $133/night
Serving some serious Blade Runner vibes, LiT BANGKOK Hotel will give you exactly what its name connotes – plenty of cool lights and an experience that’s, well, lit.

The neon lights don’t just decorate the hotel’s exterior. Even the bathrooms are similarly awashed in hues of pink and blue – undoubtedly the most hipster bath you’ll find around, from $133.

As an added bonus, their Full Spectrum room allows you to take a neon-lit shower while looking out into the city. Only a glass wall separates the bathroom from the bedroom, so you can also browse through the Thai TV channels while taking a dip in the bathtub.
Where: 36/1 Soi Kasemsan 1, Rama 1 Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330
Phone: +66 2 612 3456
4. AVANI Atrium Bangkok – From $77/night
A stay at AVANI Atrium will feel like you’re away at a tranquil beach resort, even as you’re in the heart of the city. Starting from $77, the rooms here are the kind of refuge you’ll want to rush back to after spending an entire day of braving through crowds and sweltering heat.

Unlike most other hotels, you can expect corner bathtubs here – the perfect chance for you to relax one corner. Rooms like the Grand Executive Suite will feel extra luxe – the bathroom interior’s made up entirely of black marble.
And don’t worry, the corner bathtub’s placed right by the windows, so you’ll take in views of the city while enjoying your bath.
Where: 1880 New Petchburi Road, Bangkok 10310
Phone: +66 2 7182 0001
5. Hotel Muse Bangkok – From $177/night
One of the first things that’ll catch your eye at Hotel Muse Bangkok is its eclectic mix of interior styles; it manages to marry gothic and colonial elements to give your stay that extra luxurious feel.
Taking a bath in one of the marble-decorated bathrooms will feel like you’re taking a dip in decadence, with a great view to boot – you’ll either be looking into your own massive bedroom or out into the city.

From the hotel, getting to the best spots in BKK is easy too – the hotel’s located at Langsuan, near popular areas like Siam, Sukhumvit and Silom.
Where: 55/555 Langsuan Road, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330

6. Millennium Hilton Bangkok – From $122/night
For us frugal travelers, the thought of booking a Hilton hotel accommodation may have us aggressively rolling our eyes – surely it’s way beyond our budgets, right? But from just $122/night, Millennium Hilton Bangkok will be your best bet at experiencing the high life for cheap.

Their Deluxe Rooms promise wide alcove bathtubs, whereas their Royal Suites take it up several notches by providing a mega spacious bathroom, complete with a clawfoot bathtub and a panoramic view of the city.
Where: 123 Charoennakorn Road, Klongsan, Bangkok 10600
Phone: +66 2 442 2000
7. Siam Society Hotel and Resort – From $38/night
Siam Society Hotel and Resort is located right in front of Tesco Lotus and The Crystal Park Shopping Center, so it’s perfect for stocking up on food and entertainment if you choose to sequester yourself in your room.
The bigger the room, the bigger the bathtub too – their Deluxe Double Room comes with a typical alcove bathtub and their Executive Room comes with multi-jet, round bathtubs. Both are placed along windows so you’ll get a view of the outside, whichever room you opt for.
The ultimate upgrade comes in the form of their Junior Suite where your bed is placed atop a boat fixture that’s surrounded by actual water! And if that’s not enough, right across the room and over a mini bridge, you’ll find a jacuzzi bathtub too – all in one room.
Where: 302 Soi Yothinphattana Praditmanutham Road, Klongjan Bangkapi, Bangkok 10240
Phone: +66 2 5080 4456
8. The Fusion Suites – From $42/night
For a super posh hotel stay, you’ll want to check out accommodation at The Fusion Suites. It’s right smack in the heart of the business district and accessible to the Sukhumvit area that’s popular for shopping and dining.
Their Deluxe Room offers indoor bathtubs while their Jacuzzi Deluxe Room offers – as its name suggests – jacuzzis! The latter is outdoors so you’ll get to bathe while in the company of nature.
The hotel itself has a overall cozy vibe to it – warm lighting and leather furniture add to the uber snug atmosphere.
Where: 143/61-62 Soi Sukhumvit 21 (Asoke), Sukhumvit Road, Klongtoey Nue, Wattana Bangkok 10110
Phone: +66 2 665 2644
9. Sivatel Bangkok – From $153/night
A 22-metre infinity pool, fully-equipped gym with daily classes, and spa facilities make Sivatel Bangkok one of the more all-rounded hotels on this list.

The Grand Regal Suite bathroom packs a double whammy – it has a corner bathtub that’s adjacent to both a wall-length window and another that’s collapsible, allowing you to enjoy a movie while in the bathtub.
If a single-person bathtub just doesn’t cut it for you, then make your way to The Eight Spa where you’ll get to enjoy herbal steam baths, hot stone massages and a huge jacuzzi in privacy.
Where: A 53 Wittayu Rd. Lumpini, Patumwan, Bangkok 10330
Phone: +66 2 309 5000
10. Salil Hotel Sukhumvit Soi11 – From $75/night
The Grand Budapest Hotel isn’t just a film that you enjoy in movie form. At Salil Hotel Sukhumvit Soi11, you can experience your own mini Wes Anderson-inspired hotel stay.
Retro 70s aesthetics with splashes of tangerine orange or deep ocean blue will have you spending more time taking photos of the bathroom than actually being in the bathtub itself. In the Deluxe Rooms, you can even crack a window to look into the bedroom.
The hotel’s interior is very much akin to what you’d expect of a highly-stylized Wes Anderson project – the different spaces are full of pastels and monochromatic colours. From $75 per night, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a room that’s not camera-worthy.
Where: 21/4 Soi Sukhumvit 11 (Chaiyos), Sukhumvit Road, Klongton Nua, Wattana, Bangkok 10110
Phone: +66 2 6513 8303
BONUS: SO Sofitel – From $233/night
SO Sofitel may burn a relatively bigger hole in your pocket compared to the other hotels, but we’ve decided to include it anyway because of how gorgeous their bathrooms and bathtubs are.

Each room follows a specific theme – like classic, mod and rustic – so expect the bathrooms to follow suit.
With rooms named So Cozy and So Comfy, there’s little doubt that you’ll get the best rest possible here.

Showers are overrated – it’s all about taking baths when you’re overseas
Like most, I don’t have the luxury of owning a bathtub back home, much less one that has a whirlpool option. So when you’re overseas, why not get a room that comes with a bathtub – no matter if it’s any one of the deluxe rooms with alcove bathtubs or bigger suites with outdoor multi-jet bathtubs.
Your body might be all pruny by the end of it, but at least you would’ve had some well-deserved R&R.
