Thai temptations… Sassy savings for Thailand getaways

12 October, 2012

With its seductive blend of smart city stays, blissful beaches and lush hill country, Thailand is the go-to destination for the Sassy crew. To help plan our next Siam sojourn, we’ve asked boutique travel experts Mr & Mrs Smith to round up some stunning special offers at hot hotels in Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai. Get set to say ‘sawasdee’ to some sweet deals, ladies!

Hotel Muse, Bangkok

Style Euro-Thai high rise
Setting A lollop from Lumpini

In the sultry Thai capital, Bangkok’s Hotel Muse in the leafy embassy district flaunts Euro-inspired decor and sensual city-view bedrooms. Plump for a Nimman Suite on the 17th floor and you’ll also score an outdoor terrace, perfect for taking in the stunning skyline while sipping a drink from the well-stocked bar.

Wining and dining are serious draw cards here, with sexy basement restaurant Medici turning out modern Tuscan fare, and chic Su Tha Ros offering all-day breakfasts and authentic Thai cuisine. Set on the 24th and 25th floors, the Speakeasy is the hotel’s social epicenter, with Prohibition-era styling and eclectic beats. West-facing Long Bar is your best bet for sunset sips, and the rooftop Lawn Bar beckons for vintage cocktails and killer views. This is hedonism at its very best.

SASSY SAVING: Book The Suite Life package through Smith and you’ll save 30% plus nab indulgent extras, including daily breakfast, one dinner for two at Su Tha Ros, and a Muse platter at the Speakeasy.

The Bell Pool Villa Resort, Phuket

Style Indochine-chic retreat
Setting Chilled Kamala Beach

Dive into Phuket boutique hotel The Bell Pool Villa Resort, where 16 chic villas flaunt breezy alfresco spaces and slinky ink-black pools. Each of these lavish lodges features a full kitchen, dining area, barbecue and a choice of one to four bedrooms, so they’re ideal if you’re travelling with a troupe.

The round-the-clock butler service means you need never leave your pad, as a sigh-inducing procession of spa masters, yoga instructors, cocktail shakers and chefs cater to your every whim. If you do want to venture out of your elegant enclave, you can dine on Thai and Western faves at in-house Zhong Lounge & Restaurant, take the free shuttle to laid-back Kamala Beach, or seek out the party hub of Patong, 15 minutes away.

SASSY SAVING: Sassy readers can snap up must-book deals at the Bell, including 55% off room rates for stays before 31 October, and 30% off Christmas breaks too.

The Chedi Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai

Style Contemporary meets colonial
Setting Banks of the Mae Ping

Just a hop from Chiang Mai’s famed Night Bazaar, sleekly stylish The Chedi Chiang Mai hotel is one for shopping fiends and modern design fans. High bamboo-clad walls hide a seductive luxury resort, home to chic rooms with private courtyards and sumptuous terrazzo soaking tubs, whilst floor-to-ceiling windows take in the serene river scenes beyond.

Flanked by sun loungers, umbrellas and lily ponds, the streamlined outdoor pool also sports sublime river views. A rooftop yoga deck draws devotees for sunrise Ashtanga, while the minimalist day spa doles out swoon-worthy massages, including the dynamic four-hand treatment. Fine dining comes courtesy of Australian chef Chris Patzold, who serves east-west fusion feasts in the hotel’s restaurant, housed in a restored British Consulate building. Enjoy high tea with an Asian twist, or a cooling mojito in the romance-revving bar.

SASSY SAVINGS: If you really want to live it up, Smith exclusive The Club Experience offers a host of luxe extras, including breakfast, a dinner for two, a massage for two, evening cocktails and canapés, plus a 20% discount on food and drinks at the hotel.
