I have been here a few times, (usually for a couple of days en route to Thailand) and have discovered some pretty awesome places that dont appear in your standard guidebooks. I actually think that the best restaurants, bars and bar areas are not those that you will be commonly recommended, but when they are…. you’ll be seriously grateful.
With this in mind, you may think you know the coolest place to stay… I will assume you have stayed here then because the Oriental Residence, is seriously cool.
Decked out with insanely comfortable sun-loungers and Arabian style drape day beds.. You feel very much like you are at an incredibly exclusive sanctuary high above the bustling city below. It feels like no-one knows that 32 floors up, there is a chilled out style mecca with impecable service and panoramic views.
Should laying horizontally not be your thing, then i found myself sat in enclosed tear drop sofa pods that look more like Hersheys kisses than furniture. If they served actual Hersheys Kisses in these, I would probably never leave.
