Top 10 hotels with infinity pools in Bangkok: affordable luxury

Starting or ending your trip in luxury is always a good idea. In terms of good hotels in Bangkok, you have countless options. If you – like me – are awed by infinity pools, read on quickly. Because while hotels with infinity pools are known to be “expensive,” that is not necessarily the case – by Belgian standards – in Bangkok. Although you can make it as expensive as you want.

We list 10 affordable hotels in Bangkok for you, all skyscrapers with stunning infinity edge pools. Prices for these 4 and 5-star hotels range between €82 and €157 per night. These are “as of” prices that we found at the time of writing and are obviously influenced by exchange rates, high and low seasons and other events. In this blog, we name the infinity pool opening hours for each hotel and on which floor the pool is located.


What is an infinity pool?

An infinity pool, “infinity edge pool,” “landscape pool” or “overflow pool” is a pool where at least one side appears to have no edge, it appears “endless. Usually the water falls over the edge and seems to merge into the sea, sky or city. Although it looks like there is no edge, there is and it is certainly not possible to fall out 😉
