I am writing this from a barracks room on the 6th floor. . The New Years Eve CountdownParty was one of the most outstanding experiences of my gay life. One thousand men dancing in the foam filled courtyard. A Coyote show, naked table dancers, followed by top DJs from Bangkok and Singapore.
This place really is THE best resort for gay men in the world. If you are not gay do NOT come here. If you are still discovering your gayness and nervous about it, then stay at one of the many other excellent hotels nearby and come in by taxi for a day. Explore the place. All of it. You need a sense of adventure but you will have the time of your life.
I am VERY well traveled and I keep coming back to this place. I think it is the work of a genius. The attention to detail in the design. The art,decor,antiques. The gardens, the food , the music, the service, all make me very happy to be here. They even have squirrels in the pool garden.
It is non stop gayness everyday, but in that very gentle unassuming Thai way. It really is the "Land of Smiles"
I find interacting wit the staff and especially the local men you meet to be invariably delightful.
I read some cynical reviews of Babylon on this webpage, but if I met those people I would just invite them to try to relax, try to understand and enjoy Thai culture, and simply celebrate the sheer uninhibited gayness of Babylon. Or leave if they are not capable of that. Thai tolerance is world famous too..
I particularly love the legendary breakfast, cooked by the ladies on the 6th floor , who remember and always greet old customers with a really big smile. Cranky in the morning iy it always starts my day very well. I am looking at the minimalist art in the ceiling of this room.. Exposed concrete and fake plumbing. Some people just dont get it do they? And the shared bathroom where I will go for my shave and shower right now.. non stop cruising.
i bought a babylon bathrobe, luxurious pristine white towelling. And i could and have never worn clothes for a week!. just the robe for breakfast then into the sauna complex in the robe, then into a towel for the rest of the day,evening. So Glorious to be Gay and have a place like this to enjoy the freedom we have.
we are lucky to be alive and have Babylon. and by the way all this for only 1600 baht a day less 10% for a week long booking. It siimply does not get any better!
And PS The taxi drivers may ASK for 500 baht to the airport. but just be gently assertive , smole and say .' turn the meter on please'. And understand that man is probably supporting a huge rural family in agraian up country thailand, and their rice crop was devastated by this years floods. try that for reality.
