In today's blogpost we are covering a pretty essential topic when it comes to traveling: finding the best accommodation! A while ago we already talked about the best hotels in Bangkok, but we like to take it one step further and tell you about the best resorts in Bangkok! You might wonder 'Is there a difference between hotels and resorts'? There sure is!

What are the benefits of choosing a (all inclusive) resort?

1. Most resorts include all meals and drinks (including alcohol) in their price, so you can relax and enjoy your holiday without having to worry about budgeting.

2. They offer a great level of convenience as they take care of all your needs: you can simply relax by the pool and let the staff take care of everything else. 

3. They are often cheaper than other types of accommodation in Bangkok. Especially if you are traveling as a a family or a group, all inclusive resorts usually offer better value for money than booking multiple hotel rooms. 

4. They offer a range of activities and facilities, such as swimming pools, spas and fitness centers. This can be a great way to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing in Bangkok.

So if you are looking for that little extra more than just a nice bed and some breakfast, keep on reading!

If it is your first time to Bangkok, you are in for one hell of a ride (in a good sense)! We can't wait for you to discover this beautiful, bustling city and visit all the serene temples, eat the finger-licking authentic street food, take a boat ride up the famous Chao Phraya River, haggle for bargains in the Bangkok Markets and sip cocktails in one of the city’s many rooftop bars!
