Model Answer:
In my recent visit, that I took about a couple of months ago, I stayed at a hotel in Bangkok. Frankly speaking, I think that it was one of the best hotels in a very serene environment, in which I have ever stayed, and today I would like to talk about it here.

Anyway, located in the Dusit district of Bangkok, little more than 8 kilometres away from Bangkok downtown, this stunningly-beautiful looking, private urban sanctuary sits on 3 acres of a lush garden and by one of the famous rivers of Bangkok. Easily being considered as one of the best heritage-style, luxury hotels in Bangkok, it has all the ingredients to “awe-inspire” the guests with its marvellous antiques and decoration.  

Taking elegance to the extreme, this hotel offers plenty of panache with its silent marble corridors, arranged around a central courtyard under glass with some incredible vegetation and plenty of natural light. With about 40 spacious rooms, this vast property is scattered with pieces from the owners' art collection, including breathtaking wooden Buddha statues from 16th century, and has everything from an infinity pool to multiple dining venues to a library, cinema, gym, and spa -- while maintaining an intimate vibe. Secluded Villas offer private pools, hot tubs, and rooftop terraces.

All rooms include breakfast, butler service, and free long-tail boat service along the river. Besides, its huge public area, and enormous banana trees, surrounding its water pond on three stories high atrium, would make one feel like he or she is in a huge garden.

Anyway, I think that this is one of the nicest hotels, I have ever seen and where I have stayed. One of the best features of this hotel is that it makes sure that all of its guests have plenty of space around them so that they never feel congested. Another remarkable aspect of this hotel is that every element in it, including the art pieces, decoration and design, feels like they all are the functional parts of the overall design of this luxury retreat.
