Ma Du Zi Hotel

****

Unassuming, masculine and clubby, Ma Du Zi Hotel in Bangkok is a sublime mix of Chinese, Moorish and modern design and a suitably sexy place to sip cocktails in flattering low light. Part luxurious private home, part gentlemen’s club, its obsession with the finer aspects of life will appeal to gourmet travellers, city slickers and chic-retreat addicts alike.

Highlights:

  • Beguiling design

    Contemporary art and antiques

    Gourmet French fusion dining

Smith extra

A bottle of red or white wine on arrival

In the know

Also need to know:

Part exclusive private home, part gentlemen’s club, this hotel is stylish, seductive and sophisticated. Ma Du Zi means ‘come and see’, but unless you’re a guest, it’s impossible to enter without prior arrangement. If a piece of art or an antique catches your eye in the hotel, feel free to ask if you can buy it ('borrowing' bathrobes and ashtrays is so last year!).

Packing tips:

Relaxed sports gear for morning Tai Chi in Benjakiti Park; racy threads for bar-flitting after dark.

Dress code:

You may be in the tropics, but Ma Du Zi cuts an upscale dash, so keep it city chic.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

As Mr Smith flicks through a manga-style comic that explains how to use the amenities in the room, I absentmindedly wonder out loud: ‘Nuttaporn or Pimp?’ Mr Smith looks perplexed, but that could be because he still hasn’t worked out why the whirlpool bath, big enough to hold all of the passengers on Noah’s ark, is filled up not by a tap but by a gushing rain shower above it. ‘My Thai name,’ I persist. ‘Should it be Nuttaporn or Pimp?’ Admittedly we’d tittered when encountering a few Porns and Pimps on an earlier shopping trip, but they were all lovely lasses who didn’t seem to find their name

Dining information

Restaurant:

The elegant Ma Du Zi Restaurant by Yuya, helmed by Japanese chef Yuya Okuda, has been wowing local diners with its original mix of French cuisine and oriental ingenuity. With dishes such as bouillabaisse with fresh seafood and miso and the locally loved foie gras terrine, the idea is to entertain and enchant, not just fill you up. It’s not so posh you can’t enjoy a simple burger, but the beef (Wagyu, naturally) is all the more tasty when served in a thick-cut slab with a zingy yuzu and pepper sauce. The truly dedicated can also tuck in to the chef's seasonal seven-course Omakase dinner. The window screens, with filigree patterns inspired by Granada’s ornate Alhambra palace, cast slinky shadows throughout.

Top table:

Hide away at one of the corner tables to maximise your mystique.

Last orders:

Dinner is served from 6.30pm–10.30pm; the bar stays open from 11am–2am, and is most packed around 8pm on Fridays.

Room service:

A 24-hour menu of tasty Thai and European food.

Hotel bar:

You can’t miss the glorious white round bar; you’ll come across it as soon as you enter the hotel. Perch on a high red leather stool nursing a whisky sour, or retreat to the lobby’s Tea Room, where dark slate walls, tactile rugs and gorgeous butter-soft suede sofas envelop you in relaxed sophistication. There’s a well-honed list of wine and cocktails, including the signature Ma Du Zi Martini for Bond-style assignations, and the cherry on top of your flamboyant cocktail is that guests choose when to have happy hour. Coffee and tea also run on tap here throughout the day.
