Ian Moss recently visited the Suvarnabhumi Ville Hotel near Bangkok’s main airport and sent in this report. He describes the hotel as a “spotter’s dream”, so we’re keen to bring you the information below.
The hotel is 8 minutes drive from the airport. The journey costs around 140 baht for a taxi, or there is a shuttle bus which costs 120 baht.
The hotel has two parallel blocks with a swimming pool in the middle, and the blocks are 4 floors high.
Naturally the top floor is best for views, with room 4342 reported as the best room for spotting.
All of the rooms have balconies, which makes spotting even more pleasant, and easier for photographs. This picture shows how close aircraft are without the use of a telephoto lens.
Another great feature of the hotel is the open deck on top, where you can relax and also watch the action. Ian reports that if it is raining, simply go to the floor below where there is shelter, and enjoy the views from the open ends of the building.
Nearby there are two 7/11 stores which are great for stocking up on food and drink supplies.
