High on Hotels:Siam Kempinski Hotel, Bangkok

 

We absolutely love the hotel life… Think about it-don’t we all love to delve into the absolute luxury of comfort when on a holiday and the idea is to simply relax and be at ones comfortable best especially when you have had a busy day exploring the city. Or what about those work trips? Who doesn’t like coming back to a supremely well-kept room packed with all the essentials at your disposal even when you are away from home? We believe a good hotel pampers you even more than your own peeps back home. It is only fair to give such hotels who are redefining the guest experience their due. It is with this thought that we at Helipad on Heels are coming up with a special series where we will talk about some truly fine hotels from around the World.

This time around we are rather high on learning all about the very plush Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. We got talking with the hotel representatives and are now sharing all that you need to know about this super property.

Off to Kota Bharu

We had some breakfast (which was some delicious fruit) on the deck whilst savouring the magnificent view of the sun rising up into the sky. Some chickens accompanied us by jumping onto our deck and scaring Atti and Leo, so we threw rambutan seeds on to the gravel down below so the chickens would jump down.

 

After breakfast we went for a little snorkel on the beach. Ella’s Dad brought his classic motorbike with a side cart to the farm and we had a ride around the place. The motorbike was very original and it could go super fast.

Later, Ella showed us a bee farm and it was so cool learning how bees made honey. The bee lady gave us samples of fresh unprocessed honey straight from the bee hive.

Then it was time to set off on our long journey to Kota Bharu. We entertained ourselves by dressing up pinky (my orangutan teddy), mum took a great photo of the view whilst inside our car.

When we got there, our room is beautiful. It has a wonderful view of Kota Bharu.

Last but not least, we had a scrumptious margarita pizza for dinner. The waitress gave us some free ice cream because she thought Atti was cute.
