Bangkok is popular for its bustling city life, good food, shopping places, iconic tourist attractions, hotels and golf. For travellers and golfers who are planning to have a staycation, you should check out the new Eastin Thana City Golf Resort.
Eastin Thana City Golf Resort is a new resort completed in late last year. The Thana City Golf Course has been around for decades and with this new resort, you get the best of both worlds. Eastin Thana City Golf Resort is located near the Suvarnabhumi Airport or also known as the Bangkok Airport. Don Mueang Airport is the LCCT (low cost carrier terminal) airport in Bangkok. Eastin Thana City Golf Resort offers transfers from Suvarnabhumi Airport to the resort.
Eastin Thana City Golf Resort offers 194 spacious rooms and suites. There are 175 Superior Rooms, 14 One Bedroom Suites and 5 Two Bedroom Suites. We stayed at the One Bedroom Suite and we did a walkthrough in the video.
We took the transfer from the airport to the resort. We had a red eye flight and we reached the resort after midnight.
The architecture of the building is simple and nice. It reminds us some of the resorts we stayed in Australia.
There are a number of blocks and they offer buggy services to ferry you to your ‘block’ (building).
Due to its close proximity to the airport, all the rooms come with sound proof wall and there are two layered of glasses for doors. You can’t hear a thing when a plane takes off or landing but it will be loud once you step out of the room. It is a good thing as you don’t need to hear unnecessary noises from next door such as TV and more.
There are three restaurants in this resort and they are Splash, Shark Bites and Chef Man. We dined at Splash and Shark Bites.
Splash restaurant offers all day dinning with international and local cuisine. They offer a buffet breakfast, ala carte lunch and dinner.
The restaurant is located next to the pool and you have the view of the green here while enjoy the breeze of the wind.
Shark Bite is located at the clubhouse is the golfer’s favourite restaurant as it is nearer to the green. The restaurant offers International and local cuisines and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We had our hotpot at Shark Bite and they only serve the fresh ingredients. If you want something different, do book for their hotpot (steamboat) in advance. It is good for two persons and above.
The club house facilities are the main highlights of Eastin Thana City Golf Resort Bangkok. There are two swimming pools, one adult pool and one kids pool. It is located next to Splash restaurant.
Eastin Thana City Golf Resort Bangkok offers clay tennis courts, the one and only in Thailand. During our stay there, there were many Koreans and Japanese kids spending time learning and playing at clay tennis courts. This is activity / workshop for kids during their school holiday.
There are also squash courts for those who want to play like Nicol David. Please book the courts in advance.
The fitness centre or gym is a must visit. They brought in the latest gym equipment from USA and you can hire a personal trainer (PT) during your stay. You can have a workout trip in Bangkok. There is also yoga room in this fitness centre. Please check with the fitness centre manager for the schedule.
There is also the WePlay area which is a kids playground. This is the dreamland for kids. You can send them here to enjoy the facilities.
They offer kids playground and also trampoline playground. There are also rooms for events such as birthdays here at WePlay area.
On top of that, there are also other kids activities and workshops available. Please take note that hotel resort guests might need to pay some additional facilities at club house. Please talk to the club house reception for the latest rates and schedules.
For the golf, the Thana City Country Club located just next to the resort. You can polish your golf hitting skills at the world class driving range. We had fun trying to rediscover our golfing skills.
The 18 hole golf course was designed by golf legend, Greg Norman. The golf course opens from 6 am to 7.30 pm daily. Remember to book your session quick as this is a popular golf course.
This is one of the best golf courses in Thailand so for golfers, you must come and play here for once.
We stayed at Eastin Thana City Golf Resort and we loved it. This is a more relaxed staycation in Bangkok. We can always take the taxi to the city for shopping or chillax in the resort or play some golf. To our surprise, the room rates are very reasonable.
