Banyan Tree Bangkok Curates Dining Perfection in the Heart of Bangkok

BANYAN TREE BANGKOK HAS MADE its mark over the last quarter of a century as a distinguished destination for locals who love its iconic bars and restaurants and guests who adore its 312 tastefully appointed guest rooms and location in the heart of Bangkok’s central business district on South Sathon Road.

Not only is the hotel located steps from world-class shopping centres and must-see tourist attractions, its innovative facilities include incredible dining both on- and off-site, incredible room choices — such as its new Wellbeing Sanctuary Suites — an award-winning spa, and some of the best views of the city from its 61st-floor dining and drinking complex.  


Epicureans delight in Banyan Tree Bangkok’s ten exquisite dining venues across a spectrum of global flavours, certain to entice any palate and captivate the senses. The legendary Vertigo & Moon Bar sits sixty stories high, repeatedly ranked amongst the world’s premier rooftop bars, where visitors and locals mingle under the stars while sipping inventive cocktails and live music. One floor below, the equally stylish Vertigo TOO seduces with its own take on sky-high cocktails and live bands served beside sweeping city vistas.

But Banyan Tree’s exceptional fare reaches beyond the hotel with the splendid Saffron Cruise. This memorable evening voyage glides guests down the glimmering Chao Phraya River as they indulge in gourmet tasting menus. From aromatic Thai classics to Asian fusion and international haute cuisine, Banyan Tree Bangkok’s dining destinations promise extraordinary journeys for the palate that make lasting impressions in this dynamic capital.

The Iconic Vertigo & Moon Bar 

As a pioneering rooftop bar in Bangkok’s sky-high scene, Vertigo & Moon Bar stands tall on Banyan Tree’s 61st floor, coming blazingly to life at sunset with 360-degree views. Its sleek decor exudes contemporary flair with glinting details, an ambient soundtrack and artsy vibe.

Vertigo’s soaring perspective reveals Bangkok’s aesthetic landscape unlike anywhere else, revealing a mesmerising backdrop for everything from romantic dates under the stars to business drinks and festive celebrations above the bustling streets.

The venue’s cascading decks make ideal vantages for fun gatherings and chilled-out cocktails. Below, the intimate Moon Bar proffers its own majestic sights. Whether opting for the à la carte menu or speciality sets, visitors savour this rooftop’s heights literally and figuratively as a pioneer in Bangkok’s elevated culinary scene.

Curated Culinary Cruises

In 2019, Banyan Tree Bangkok debuted a one-of-a-kind gourmet cruising experience along Bangkok’s storied Chao Phraya River: the Saffron Cruise. This elegant two-storey vessel floats amid Thailand’s riverside heritage sites, evoking the country’s rich culture between delicious bites for discerning diners.

On the top level, an al fresco Moon Deck echoes Banyan Tree’s Moon Bar with inventive drinks served alongside panoramas of the meandering River of Kings. Below, an intimate air-conditioned lounge sets the stage for revelry as royal vistas pass through the windows. Dine on a melange of delectable Thai appetisers and entrees, the flavours onboard entwining with glimpses of gilded temples and scenes of daily riverside life.

The refined Saffron Cruise hosts up to 120 diners aboard the two-tiered ship for a voyage featuring the freshest authentic Thai cuisine. Departing nightly at 7pm, the vessel glides past landmarks like Wat Arun’s majestic spires and the Grand Palace’s glinting facades, offering enriching glimpses of Bangkok’s history.

Onshore at Banyan Tree Bangkok, diners continue discovering Thai heritage reflected in the hotel’s refined design and dedication to culinary excellence and service, proven by its long list of honours and awards.
