Like all Banyan Tree properties, the Banyan Tree Bangkok sits like an oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the Thai capital. Enter its doors and the soft, comforting scent of exotic lemongrass premeates your being, evoking a rich and immediate sense of serenity and relaxation.
Just 30 minutes away from Bangkok International Airport, the Banyan Tree Bangkok is the only all-suite hotel in the heart of the City of Angels, and boasts the tallest garden spa. The building it occupies soars up to 61 floors, and right at the apex of this arresting structure is the Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar. Shortly after it opened, Vertigo was awarded the Best New Restaurant Award 2002 by Bangkok Dining and Entertainment magazine.
At sunset, this sprawling space under the stars come alive, as guests arrive to watch the brilliant shades of crimson transform into the darkness of night.
Set on a former helipad, the restaurant affords an outstanding 360-degree view of the city, with glittering landmarks-behold the Grand Palace twinkling in gold, the Royal Chapel, the Chao Phraya river, Wat Pho temple, National Museum and the serene Emerald Buddha.
Thanks to this stunning landscape, an excellent team of service staff and a mouth-watering menu of international cuisine, the Vertical Grill and Moon Bar has become a favourite haunt for visitors from every corner of the world. Able to seat up to 100 gests, Vertigo is divided into three sections a cosy romantic dining courtyard, a hip private party lounge, and the sultry Moon Bar for cocktail chill-out sessions under the stars. So popular is this venue that some of the city’s most glamorous parties and events, from fashion launches to birthday celebrations, have been held here.
The cuisine of the Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar matches its spectacular views, with dishes like Red Mullet En Papillote with Thyme, Grilled Oysters with Parmesan Cheese and Mediterranean tapas, guaranteed to tantalise the tastebuds and lift the spirits.
Most of its creations encompass barbecue items-straight from the grill onto your plate. All these are best enjoyed with a glass of fine champagne, wine or cocktails, as you watch the panoramic setting sun disappear below the lights of Thailands capital city.
