1. InterContinental Koh Samui

Probably my favorite club lounge in the whole of Thailand is the executive lounge at the InterContinental Koh Samui which also has the best club lounge on the island of Koh Samui. In fact, InterContinental hotels are often our the best Club lounges in a city. Have a read of our review of the InterContinental Club lounge in London to see how good they get!

Koh Samui is a popular tourist destination just over an hour away from busy capital Bangkok. The resort sits atop a cliff amidst coconut plantations and has 300 meters of its own beach frontage along the scenic coast of Taling Ngam. The resort is renowned for incredible sunsets and breathtaking ocean views, set across 22 acres of luscious tropical gardens to the quiet, unspoiled, white sandy beachfront.

InterContinental Koh Samui Resort is home to 79 rooms, suites, and villas, which sit on a clifftop and descend through tropical gardens to a private 180-meter white sand beach.

The resort affords magnificent views across the Gulf of Thailand, the famous Five Islands, and Ang Thong National Marine Park; no wonder it is featured in the New York Times’ bestselling book ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die’.

There are 170 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts in major global cities such as London, Paris, New York, and Tokyo, including 50 in Asia Pacific. InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort will join InterContinental Hua Hin Resort also in Thailand, which opened in 2009.

Club InterContinental at InterContinental Koh Samui, offers a brilliant club lounge with a personalized butler and concierge service, complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, and sunset cocktails & canapés, located right on the beach.

The 24/7 Club InterContinental lounge is very chic and you can enjoy the complimentary food and drink along with a selection of daily local and international newspapers and lifestyle publications. You get unparalleled panoramic ocean views paired with incredible service in your tropical paradise.

2. InterContinental Phuket Resort

In at number two is another InterContinental. InterContinental Phuket has one of the best club lounges on the island of Phuket.

InterContinental Phuket Resort features stunning vistas of the sparkling Andaman Sea and white sand of Kamala Beach. Each of the 221 exquisite rooms and villas is a meticulously curated and blends Thai tradition with contemporary design. Locally inspired culinary delights, holistic wellness journeys, and bespoke excursions all combine to offer a unique Phuket experience.

InterContinental Phuket Resort is located on Kamala Beach, between Millionaire’s Mile and the Amanpuri headland, one of the island’s most popular destinations and perfect for travelers looking for a relaxing and luxurious getaway.

This well-enclosed bay and fishing village situated off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea is surrounded by forested hills and is one of the most beautiful places in Phuket. Kamala Beach is known for its expansive white sands and crystal clear waters, providing travelers with the choice of both tranquillity and exclusivity with easy access to Phuket’s vibrant nightlife, with the popular Patong Town just a short drive away, as well as the Phuket International Airport.

The InterContinental Phuket Resort will be the sixth IHG property in the Greater Phuket area, and the 19th IHG property in Thailand. It comprises of a mix of villas and hotel rooms, with unobstructed views of the glittering Andaman Sea and surrounded by forests of pine trees.

Guests will have direct beach access, experience an exquisite gastronomic adventure with the resort’s F&B offerings, as well as enjoy breath-taking views from the swimming pool, an uncompromising spa, the Club InterContinental, the Fitness Centre and Kids’ Club.

Club InterContinental offers a brilliant club lounge with its own private pool, personalized butler and concierge service, complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, and sunset cocktails & canapés, located right on the beach.

he 24/7 Club InterContinental lounge is very chic and you can enjoy the complimentary food and drink along with a selection of daily local and international newspapers and lifestyle publications.

Club guests can indulge in a range of complimentary food and beverage options: gourmet breakfast in the lounge, light refreshments, such as coffees, teas, soft drinks, mineral water, juices and snacks, then afternoon tea and evening cocktails and canapés in the lounge with lots and lots of delicious canapés.

3. Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort

Another excellent lounge in a wonderful resort is the lounge at the Hyatt Regency Phuket which offers beautiful views overlooking Kamala Cove at the southern end of Kamala Beach and is situated on a steep jungle-covered hillside.

The hillside location is a good and a bad thing. It is hard work walking up the hill but this climb is also good exercise! If you wait for the golf buggy to ferry you about the resort, the wait can be lengthy. The Hyatt Regency Phuket is around half an hour’s drive ($25 USD in a taxi) ride from Phuket International Airport (HKT).

It is also worth noting that the Hyatt Regency Phuket is not directly situated on a beach. Whilst you have wonderful pools at this Hyatt, you need to take the minibus to the beach so it is no convenient if you have kids and want to paddle. By contrast, the Grand Hyatt Bali, which features in our best club lounges in Bali, is a similar price in both cash and in World of Hyatt points and is right on the beach.

The 201 rooms at Hyatt Regency Phuket are nicely furnished with different layouts. Each one has a balcony or a terrace that is extremely private and most have unobstructed views of the glittering Andaman Sea and its spectacular tropical sunsets. There are also 40 rooms with outdoor private plunge pools or Jacuzzis and all rooms have marble bathrooms featuring a dual basin and a separate toilet.

One of the best things about this property is the amazing Regency Club lounge which is considered by many to be the best Regency Club in the world and well worth paying to upgrade in either points or miles. If you are a Globalist you get this lounge access for free.

It is a large club lounge and has a beautiful private and exclusive infinity pool for club guests overlooking the bay. You can laze with a complimentary cocktail and take in the view as the sunsets over this private club pool!

Within this club lounge, you get complimentary breakfast with both hot and cold items and made-to-order eggs and omelets. Evening hors d’ oeuvres change every day and there is enough food to piece together a full meal. There is a chef station outside serving hot food which is generally rice and rotating dishes such as Thai chicken curry or various meat. There is a small selection of western desserts. With the evening hors d’ oeuvres, the spirits, wine, and beer are also free.

It is worth mentioning that the buffet breakfast at the Pool House is excellent and better than the breakfast in the club lounge, with a good selection of international hot and cold items and juices. If you are a Globalist, this breakfast is complimentary and is a better choice than the club lounge breakfast, otherwise, it costs around $20 USD per person if it is not included in your rate.

The Hyatt Regency has the largest pool in all of Phuket, surrounded by loungers or comfy cabanas overlooking the sea. There is also a spa and an unimpressive fitness center along with free fast wi-fi and a Camp Hyatt Kids Club for children 4-12. A shuttle will take you to the nearby beaches of Kamala and Patong for a small fee, the latter can be very lively. It is worth booking an excursion to James Bond Island if you are a fan.

As mentioned above, the one thing that this hotel is missing is a beach. Kamala beach is a reasonable non-private beach within walking distance from the hotel but as there is no sidewalk along the road and motorbikes fly along the road at great speed so it is not an easy walk. Alternatively, the hotel has a shuttle to take you there a few times per day.

The Hyatt Regency Phuket is a Category 3 World of Hyatt property, requiring just 12,000 points per night. Hyatt is a 1:1 transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards card. This card earns an amazing sign-up bonus. Currently, you get 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 USD on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening, so you would get 4 nights at the Hyatt Regency Phuket for free, by signing up for this Chase Ultimate Rewards card.

Book the rest of your stay at the Hyatt Regency Phuket (around $200 – $300 USD per night) with our luxury travel concierge and you will get the following free benefits* as well as your usual World Of Hyatt points and status benefits:

  • Daily full breakfast for 2 per room
  • Welcome amenity
  • 100 USD property credit per stay
  • Early check-in and later check out priority
  • Room upgrade priority

4. Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel

The Four Seasons Bangkok was rebranded as an Anantara hotel on March 1, 2015. This executive club concierge lounge is only placed below the resorts above because, brilliant as it is, this hotel is not a resort by the sea, so if you are looking for a vacation, you should pick the resorts in positions 1 to 3.

However, if you are staying in Bangkok, you should definitely consider this fabulous hotel if you are searching for an executive club lounge. Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel & Spa contains 354 guestrooms, seven restaurants and bars, a spa, a gym, an outdoor swimming pool, a ballroom seating up to 550 and extensive meeting and event rooms. It is located in Rajadamri in the center of Bangkok and opened in 1978 as a Peninsula hotel, before being rebranded as a Four Seasons in 2003 and then an Anantara in 2015.

This hotel, along with the Atheene Hotel below, offers the two best executive club lounges across all the luxury hotels in Bangkok. There is a new Four Seasons Bangkok due to open imminently at Chao Phraya River. If this also launches with a club lounge, then there will be further competition for the top spot.

All luxury accommodations at Anantara Siam Bangkok were fully refurbished in 2017, so you can be confident that you will experience a classy stay with elegant furnishings and signature Thai touches. Enjoy views of the neighborhood while you relax by the window or soak in your marble bathtub.

The hotel offers world-class dining, including Royal Thai, Italian, Japanese, Steakhouse, and Aqua Bar. The Anantara Spa is where ancient remedies and modern techniques soothe the soul.

6. InterContinental Bangkok

Another InterContinental makes it into our top 10 best list and for good reason. These lounges are fabulous! The InterContinental Bangkok has a Club Intercontinental executive lounge which is one of our favourite brands of club lounge. Just take a look at the Club InterContinental in London!

You really do get special treatment here. 48 hours before your expected arrival, the Club InterContinental manager will contact you to address any needs and preferences that you may have ahead of your stay. On arrival at the hotel, you’ll be personally greeted and escorted to the Club InterContinental’s check-in lounge.

7. Siam Kempinski Bangkok

This stylish club lounge at the Siam Kempinski Bangkok is located on the 17th floor and has a wonderful atmosphere with floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the skyline views. To gain access you need to be staying on the Executive Floors.

This Kempinski Executive Lounge offers the ultimate facilities and services making the trip an ultra-special one. Services include personalized check-in and check-out, secretarial services, complimentary food, and beverages: breakfast, lunch snacks, afternoon tea, evening light meals as well as selected alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Meeting rooms and private computer stations are available.

8. Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok

The Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok club level is also worth paying the upgrade cost. This hotel is well located near to Erawan, Central and Paragon areas of Bangkok, which is useful, given that temperatures can quite easily reach a high of 38 degrees, however, the hotel is really large, so the service tends to rather impersonal, which reflects on your overall experience at this hotel.

On the club level, you feel special again, in their hotel-within-a-hotel environment. This lounge has a great view and is configured much like a restaurant, with lots of dining tables and chairs in booths. Rooms on the club level and the regular rooms are all of a decent standard although club rooms tend to be larger. Whilst the lounge is not desperately stylish but it has been decorated in a standard Hyatt style, which is pleasing rather than mindblowing. You get complimentary breakfast, which consists of plenty of fruit, smoked salmon, meats and cheeses, yogurts, juices, and bread, muffins, and pastries as well as cereals. There is also an omelet bar, salad bar, juice bar, and coffee station. Breakfast starts from 6 am in the Grand Club Lounge.

The Grand Club gets pretty crowded during the evening cocktails so be sure to pop in early to get a nice seat. You get light canapés (not really sufficient for dinner) and some super little custardy, chocolatey desserts in glass cups. The personalized club level concierge in the lounge always bothers to recognize and greet guests and it’s this kind of special treatment that will keep you coming back. The other super thing about this hotel is the beautiful pool with a large decked terrace and comfy padded wooden loungers, which offer the perfect place to relax and escape from frenetic Bangkok.

Whilst this is not the best club lounge in Bangkok, we feel that for the money, this hotel offers good value with a good quality lounge, hence our placing this lounge in position 4. To be honest, there isn’t a great deal to choose between this lounge, the JW Marriott lounge, and the Sofitel lounge, so it’s worth working out which is the cheapest before making your final decision.

Book the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok with our luxury travel concierge and you will get the following free benefits* as well as your usual World Of Hyatt points and status benefits:

  • Daily full breakfast for 2 per room
  • Welcome amenity
  • 100 USD property credit per stay
  • Early check-in and later check out priority
  • Room upgrade priority

10. JW Marriott Bangkok

The JW Marriott Bangkok is a great place to earn and redeem your Marriott Bonvoy points. The hotel is the first stop on Sukhumvit Rd, the center of the city near Soi 2. This JW Marriott is a big hotel located near Nana’s nightlife and crowds. The hotel is stylish, in a Marriot-way, with comfy beds and good blackout curtains. The club lounge can be found on the 16th floor and the entrance is decorated with pretty flower arrangements – a nice touch. Inside, there is an open kitchen, lots of dark woods, a light marble floor, and an outdoor terrace to enjoy a meal outside or for smokers to have a cigarette (which is not ideal for non-smokers who want some fresh air).

Breakfast includes an array of bread, croissants, and bagels and there are loads of fruit and cereals. A real-life chef cooks made-to-order omelets (which meats preheated eggs that you will get in other lounges).

Each night, complimentary cocktails, including beer and wine, are available in a four-hour window between 4:30 pm and 8:30 pm. A variety of hot food, as well as salads, cheeses, and desserts, are also available 6 to 8 pm. Each night has a different theme of cuisine eg Japanese with sushi. For each meal, you get more than two hot appetizers, you’ll find options like fish cakes, sushi, and sliders. This food is more than enough to fill you up so you don’t need to head out for an extra evening meal.

The JW offering is comparable to the Grand Hyatt Erawan above and the Sofitel Sukhumvit but offers a better location and more spacious room, though the JW Marriott is not as new as the Sofitel or the Hyatt so can look tatty in places.
