With 22 million visitors each year, Bangkok was named the world’s most visited city in 2019 for the fourth consecutive year. Tourists are dazzled by its busy markets, Buddhist monuments, soaring skyscrapers and delicious dining options. If you’re tempted to stay a little longer and see more – or just fancy extra space and convenience – these serviced apartments offer kitchens, pools and balconies in prime city locations.

Guests can also use a large swimming pool, a fitness centre with free classes, and a spa.

Fancy a corner of Bangkok to call your own? These 13 huge serviced apartments on Ekkamai 10 feel more like private residences than pit stops, with even the smallest packing in a full kitchen, two bathrooms and a maid’s room, naturally. Terrace rooms also have their own balcony with alfresco spa bathtub, and there’s an outdoor pool, concierge and gym available for all to use.

5. Oriental Residence Bangkok

The luxury suites in this serviced block on Wireless Road may come with fully equipped kitchens but you won’t need to use them. The dining options on-site take some beating, with poolside meals served in cabanas at the Play Deck and French fine-dining from Michelin-starred chef Henk Savelberg. Don’t miss the extravagant afternoon teas at Café Claire too, including an English-themed affair served on a tabletop Ferris Wheel, or French delicacies delivered on a miniature Eiffel Tower.

Minutes from Bangkok’s Central Business District, this peaceful property feels more like a holiday resort than a bland corporate building. There’s a light-filled fitness centre, tranquil spa and salon, as well as a fantastic kid’s club with outdoor play area and daily craft sessions. The real draw is the lagoon-style pool though, lined with palm trees and sun loungers, with its own bar for poolside cocktails after sticky city days.
