We’re big fans of Bangkok – a fast-paced city of sensual overload. Sometimes it can be a bit too much. That’s when one of the city’s five-star hotels become a welcome refuge. We can’t wait to try out the new LUXX XL, which will open next month.
This is the second Bangkok property for LUXX. Rooms at the seven-story hotel have floor to ceiling windows, private balconies and minimalist furniture of teak wood, slate stone and polished or matte stainless steel. LUXX calls their bathrooms “fun.” I’m not sure what they mean by that but they do note that the bathrooms have open partitions. LUXX XL also has an infinity edge and slate stone-finished salt-system swimming pool, “Milk” a New York-style bar, and an executive lounge overlooking the pool. You can book a studio, one or two-bedroom or even opt for LUXX XL Home Suites, which combine the services and amenities of the hotel and serviced-apartments for those guests planning to settle in for awhile.
LUXX XL is located along the upmarket Langsuan road, which connects Central Chidlom / BTS Skytrain Chidlom Station on one end, to Lumpini Park at the other. The BTS Skytrain makes it really convenient to zip around Bangkok, especially for those with shopping on their mind.
