Gold List Newcomers – St. Regis Bangkok

Flip through photos of this year’s newcomers to the Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List—just some of the highest-scoring hotels and resorts in its most recent Readers’ Choice Awards. St. Regis, Bangkok, with overall score of 94.5, opened in 2011 on the high-end Rajadamri shopping strip, this “exceptional-in-every-way hotel” melds traditional Thai style with modernism. “It’s a refreshing place to return to after a long day in the busy capital.”

The Elemis Spa offers color-light therapy. More >>
