The St. Regis Bangkok was once again awarded a Five-Star rating in the 63rd annual Forbes Travel Guide’s 2021 Star Awards, the fourth consecutive year the five-star hotel was given the highest rating in the prestigious global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas.
Five-Star ratings are given to establishments that are described by the prestigious travel guide as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities”. In Bangkok, only three establishments have been bestowed this honor including The St. Regis Bangkok.
“I am proud of our team for consistently delivering on our promise of impeccable service. Recognition from Forbes Travel Guide, as well as positive feedback from our guests and peers in the industry, encourage us to continue creating experiences for our guests to stay exquisite,” said Klaus Christandl, General Manager of The St. Regis Bangkok.
In recent months, The St. Regis Bangkok unveiled IGNIV Bangkok, the hotel’s newest gastronomic destination and brainchild of Andreas Caminada, head chef of the internationally acclaimed 3-Michelin-starred restaurant Schloss Schauenstein in Switzerland. The St. Regis Bangkok also partnered with Clinique La Prairie to open the pioneering Swiss health clinic first aesthetics and medical spa outside of Switzerland on the 15th floor of the hotel.
Created in 1958, the Five-Star rating system is the only independent, global rating system of its kind in the world for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas. Hotels are evaluated by anonymous inspectors who check-in to for a minimum of two nights. Properties were inspected prior to the pandemic and when regional restrictions allowed for the safe return of guests.
In addition to the hotel’s prime location directly accessible to a BTS Skytrain station, Forbes inspectors also highlighted The St. Regis Bangkok’s personal butler service, outdoor infinity pool, and collection of fine restaurants and bars.
“These 2021 award winners are a testament to the resiliency of the hospitality industry,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “During an unprecedented time, these top properties adapted to numerous adversities all while maintaining high service levels and ensuring the health security of their guests and staff.”
