Please allow me to rate this place with 10 stars. The level of professionalism, the high-end pampering, I just can't say enough about the staff. From day one, every single staff member, in a very seamless way, was there to make our stay incredibly comfortable and warm. The place was extremely well kept, top of the line rooms and very...

My husband and I stayed at The 137 for 5 nights. It was recommended by our travel agent and did not disappoint in anyway, in fact was just about perfect. Our room/ suite was huge, elegant, impeccably clean and lovely and cool. The choice of indoors and outdoor showers was lovely. The hotel surroundings are gorgeous and you really wouldn't...

This place is incredible. For work, I travel all around the globe and this is one of the nicest places I have stayed. With the 150 year old building (breakfast and bar) to the pool to the rooms, this place is fantastic. Furthermore, the people that work there are extremely friendly and helpful. We didn't do the spa since it...

This hotel was beautiful, but maybe I expected more based on all the reviews and it's rankings on many well know travel sights, but it was a little disappointing. Especially when every hotel in the region seems to offer exemplary service, this didn't standout for me as I expected it to. The Butler gave me restaurant recommendations were fine, but...

137 Pillars House lives up to its reputation as one of the best hotels in Thailand. The location a little outside makes it a wonderful oasis. A short tuk tuk ride to anywhere. The butler took care of recommendations and reservations. I loved walking from my bungalow to the teak pillars house for a delicious breakfast. You get to pick...

This hotel is amazing. It is so beautifully decorated. The attention to detail is impeccable. The service is on point. Our butler , Toto, coordinated a private yoga class on the lawn for us, which was so much fun. He made sure we had towels and soap ready to go for our tour. He literally thought of whatever we may...

Wow! I don't even know where to begin because everything about this resort was perfect. I liked the location being slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the old city, but close enough where a tuk-tuk is easy to maneuver back and forth. It is also walking distance to a few spots on the riverfront. Plus it's only 20...

This is a luxurious, small, boutique hotel. I am not an aficionado of Butlers, but you are allocated one when you arrive, and many people have spoken of using the butler's services. Oddly they wanted my credit card on check in, even though the room had been booked and paid in advance by our travel agent - this was the...
