When I was booking my second stay at the Anantara Bangkok Sathorn, I requested a suite on the opposite side from the 14th-floor apartment I stayed in last time because despite my stunning-but-somewhat-less-so view, there had been so much direct daytime sunlight that I had to keep the curtains drawn during regular business hours.
This time, I was determined to let the sunshine in, without having it scorch me and my living space. I was given a 10th-floor apartment on the opposite side, highly desirable, according to the rental agent, because it overlooks the pool. But I've yet to see the pool from anywhere but ground level. Why look down, when there so much beauty spread out right across from you?
