The rooftop bar and restaurant are often credited as one of the best in the city; Vertigo restaurant offers rooftop dining at its finest – being alfresco and affording 360-degree views across Bangkok. It serves seafood and premium steaks. The other restaurants in the hotel, may not have the pull of being on top of the city but they shouldn’t be overlooked.

Elephant Hills

Perched on the edge of Cheow Larn Lake on the Sok River, the floating tents of the Elephant Hills Rainforest Camp – sister-camp of the Elephant Hills Camp – are hidden away from the hustle and bustle of tourist beaches. Once you’ve gotten up close to the Asian elephants at Elephant Hills Camp, the Rainforest Camp allows you to explore the diverse flora and fauna that lie deep in the lush tropical rainforest that covers southern Thailand. Kayak the Sok River directly from the front porch of your luxury tented river camp, take a morning dip in the calm waters of the lake or set off into the jungle in search of wild monkeys and vibrant birds before returning to spend the night in your floating abode and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle inhabitants.

Saadiyat Rotana

The Saadiyat Rotana is a contemporary hotel located on a stretch of pristine beach with beautiful views of the Arabian Gulf. Classic rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows for you to soak up the sea views. Enjoy a choice of excellent dining options, from Italian to British and American dishes and International cuisine.
