CNY Travel Special – Hotel Hotspots from Mr and Mrs Smith

Hot off the press and just in time for Chinese New Year, boutique hotel experts Mr & Mrs Smith dish up a Tasting Menu of some delectably dreamy hotel hotspots.  Feast your eyes and fuel your fantasies with a few new Bangkok babes, a sparkling Sydney stunner and a sleekly seductive US ski bunny…

CNY Travel Special - Hotel Hotspots from Mr. and Mrs SmithDish of the Day: The Siam, Bangkok, Thailand
The Thai capital is having a moment, thanks partly to the arrival of art deco-inspired new Bangkok boutique hotel The Siam. Designed by US interiors whizz Bill Bensley, this heritage-modern sanctuary is right on the Chao Phraya riverside, boasting the city’s only pool villas, a muay Thai kickboxing ring, cooking classes and a Sodashi spa. The 39 beautiful boudoirs include romance-revving Riverview Suites; Thai dining is hosted in a historic Jim Thompson teak house.

Something on the Side: Hotel Muse, Bangkok, Thailand
Rooftop bars are all the rage, as seen at glam Hotel Muse in Bangkok. Euro-influenced decor rules throughout this sophisticated 174-room high-rise, known for hedonistic wining and dining. Hightail it to Prohibition-accented bar the Speakeasy on the 24th and 25th floors; the west-facing Long Bar is great for sinking sundowners, but the exotic Lawn Bar has the best skyline views. Order a vintage Negroni, then descend to basement-belle Medici for mod-rustic Italian fare.

Share Plate: Oriental Residence, Bangkok, Thailand
Holidaying with family or friends? Uptown Bangkok hotel Oriental Residence, in the tranquil embassy quarter, offers 145 rooms including chic apartment-style suites with either two or three bedrooms, a kitchen and laundry facilities. This sleek skyscraper setting may say ‘business trip’, but there’s a well-stocked play room and a kids’ pool beside the adult one. Café Claire will please all-comers with its gourmet comfort food; for elegant mod-Chinese lunch, dinner or cocktails, opt for main restaurant Mandopop.

First Bite: QT Sydney, Sydney, Australia
Sydney makes a sensational city break, seducing with its jaw-dropping harbour, iconic surf beaches, niche shopping and gourmet credentials. New QT Sydney boutique hotel is the perfect base for soaking up the scene, with kooky-but-cool touches including an in-the-know concierge app. Set in a converted theatre and department store, with witty, retro-hip design, it boasts 200 rooms (sporting DIY Martini kits), buzzy drinking and dining areas, and SpaQ, complete with a trad gents’ barber’s.

Last Order: Amangani, Jackson Hole, United States
Make the most of the northern winter with a luxe ski break at 29-suite Amangani hotel in Jackson Hole, one of the US’s best snow-blessed resorts. Book the Smith Ski Special Offer by 31 January for a minimum five-night stay before 28 February, and you’ll get ski passes and ski lodge access, breakfast and a four-course tasting dinner menu for two, plus a 60-minute spa treatment each. Or check out more Amangani deals.
