I stayed at the Bangkok Kempinski a few times and always forgot the minibar was all inclusive….

Agreed the MBS pool is a bit chilly, was there 3 years back. Had to go in and out of the hot tub.

Would agree on changing the water every night given the amount of heavy petting going on…

Bangkok Kempinski is a very ritzy place, we stayed there once when we got a good deal (I don’t think the mini bar was included on our rate). It’s got a link straight into the back of Siam Paragon. Normally we will stay on the other side of the mall at the Novotel which is plenty decent.

The thing I always looked forward to is having a Cheddar & Jalapeño Bagel for breakfast at Au Bon Pain — that was located in the basement level of Paragon, and then I washed it down with a Cha Yen.

They used to have Au Bon Pain in Singapore, but that was over 20 years ago. It closed down so fast I don’t think I even got the chance to step in even once!

Of course the local food Thailand is always great. What I love about Thailand is you can walk into any eatery and order paad thai — nobody messes up that one, and it’s dirt cheap.

Stayed at the Kempinski once in 2015/16, and just like you, forgot the minibar was all inclusive. Guess I was too used to the “Singapore style” of charging for every little thing. Although don’t think changing all the water is very feasible, would be quite a waste. Unless of course you mean running it all through a heater.

I haven’t gotten to stay at the one in SG yet but driven by quite a few times, must say I love the colonial style building.

What I love more than Pad Thai is surprisingly the Thai omelettes. I used to get them with rice and have it for breakfast while on vacation in Thailand… was always so amazed by how such a simple dish could be done so well. So fluffy and flavorful but not oily unlike the ones in Singapore.
