Bag yourself a Dowadueng Corner Deluxe suite for drool-worthy city views through dual-aspect windows in the dusky black- and grey-toned bedroom or via tall glass panels in the bathroom. The lighter-hued Yama Executives have espresso machines; for delicious indulgence, you can’t beat the spacious Nimman Suites; those on the 17th floor tout manicured outdoor terraces for taking in the skyline while savouring the well stocked bar.
Nestled 19 floors up, the foliage-fringed infinity lap-pool and sun-baked deck with daytime Wet Bar is pleasingly breezy. Scoff Angus beef burgers and slurp smoothies as you soak in the skyscraper scenes.
Arrive with a modest amount of baggage so you can top up your suitcases with goodies from the city’s finest markets and malls. Bangkok bakes from April to October, so stock your valises with cool cotton threads.
Make time for vertiginous thrills at the Speakeasy, Muse's lofty rooftop lounge bars with killer Bangkok views.
Muse is more adults' abode than toddlers' playground, but the hotel offers baby cots, and one child under four can share a bed with parents for free (breakfast costs THB325). Extra beds for kids aged four to 12 cost THB1,250, including breakfast.
Despite the adult sophistication of Hotel Muse, children are welcome, with free baby cots and affordable babysitting, as well as family-friendly interconnecting rooms. One child under four can share their parents' bed for free, but breakfast is extra at THB325 (plus tax and service charges); an extra bed for a maximum of one child aged four to 12 in their parents' room costs THB1,250, including breakfast. For older children, the cost rises to THB2,500.
Independent teens. Space is pretty slim for toddlers to run amok.
Some Dowadueng Corner Deluxe rooms interconnect with twin-bedded Jatu Deluxe rooms, making them perfect for families. Extra beds can be added to rooms for a fee.
Lumpini Park is a hop and a skip down the road if the kids are craving green play space. Swan pedalos are a fun way to explore its languid lake. Teens will love the shopping at Siam's cluster of malls.
There are shallow sections at each end of the main pool, but these are designed for submerged sun-beds rather than paddling infants. Kids under 12 must be supervised.
Kids' menus aren't provided, but the chefs are happy to rustle up mini-portions of mainstream meals at all of Muse's three restaurants. Highchairs are available and the staff will heat up baby food and milk for parents with tots in tow.
Babysitters can be booked from THB500 an hour, for a minimum of four hours, but reservations must be made in advance.
No need to pack
Baby cots and highchairs, which are supplied free of charge.
Dusid Duplexes and the Nimman Suite come with handy pantries and refrigerators.
