Thailand’s Onscreen Starlets
It was one of this summer’s most talked about films, but The Hangover Part II doesn’t just feature an all star cast of actors, two of our top Thai getaways also put in an appearance. You too can have a stay worthy of the silver screen at these premiere hotels…
One of the film’s biggest stars is the Phulay Bay, Krabi, a retreat in Southern Thailand that is nothing short of breathtaking. With a wide variety of pavilions and villas to suit every taste, Phulay Bay sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the coast of the Andaman Sea, surrounded by mountains, ocean and rainforest. Elephant trekking, diving, rock climbing and jungle trekking are just a few of the activities available to guests – if they even want to leave the luxury of the hotel’s spa and infinity pool. From its 24-hour personalised butler service, to rainforest showers and private plunge pools, the world’s first Ritz-Carlton Reserve truly is beyond comparison.
Bangkok’s skyscraping Lebua at State Tower hotel also provides the scenery for many key moments in the film. Luxury is guaranteed in the opulent suites of this landmark building and a discerning attention to detail is evident on every one of its 67 floors. Famous rooftop restaurant Sirocco with its Sky Bar is one of the highest open air venues in the world and, as a result, affords stunning views of the entire city in an unforgettable dining experience. Inspired by its key role in the movie, the Sky Bar even offers guests the specially made ‘Hangovertini’, a cocktail of green tea liqueur, Martini Rosso, apple juice and rosemary honey.
