LET'S FACE IT---BANGKOK IS VERY NON-HALAL AS PORK IS AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE AND EVEN IF MUSLIMS ORDER FISH OR VEGETABLES THERE IS THE NAGGING FEAR THE POT, PAN AND COOKING UTENSILS HAVE BEEN USED TO COOK PORK EARLIER!
Now there is a brand new hotel catering to Muslim visitors which opened only last February 11 2017!
It's called Al-Meroz and almost all the staff are Thai Muslims with female staff in tudung and pants. The 242 rooms have arrows pointing to Mecca plus a Koran. For female guests travelling alone, there is a dedicated women-only floor staffed by women. Even the inroom TV programmes are geared for family friendly viewing!
Alcohol is not available at all and you cannot bring them into your room should you purchase them outside.
Respecting the Muslim guests, the rooftop pool and gym are for exclusive use by women in the morning till noon while male guests can use them after midday.
There are several major hospitals specialising in surgical and cosmetic surgery so Al-Meroz is ideal to recuperate!
Al-Meroz hotel is Bangkok's leading halal hotel!
