Getting There: Uber is the best way unless he asks you for gas money.
Too lazy to go out in Bangkok, I booked a room at Le Meridien Suvarnabhumi which is conveniently located next to the airport. With less than 10 hours before my flight to Jakarta, I just needed a place to lay my head. Unfortunately, I stumbled upon the best resort unknown to most people who visit Bangkok. Here’s why:
Let’s start with the happy hour. If you’re an SPG platinum, there’s happy hour in the main bar area which is better than a lounge with children. I had a Singha beer and went up to my room.
I tried to squeeze in too much by taking the wrong way to Asia. I ended up with only a few hours in Bangkok. The room was massive and had a great bathroom. I did not get to enjoy it as I passed out upon arrival.
There was a balcony connected to the bedroom with a seating area and one in the living room.
The Night Golf
TPOL writes a golf review section where I share my golf experience for those who like to golf when they travel even if they aren’t the greatest golfers. By not researching the hotel ahead of time, I had no idea that it had a golf course which is open until midnight. It’s roughly $100 a round and you must have a caddie, presumably to keep track of where your ball goes at night. It’s by far the coolest thing I have seen in a long time and am extremely disappointed that I did not get to play.
I was looking for a place to catch a quick nap before I went back to the airport. What I found was a fantastic hotel from top to bottom with what probably would have been my favorite golf course of all time.
