Shama Lakeview Asoke: Review

Conveniences of a luxury hotel blended with the independence of a rented furnished apartment. Apartments range from studio up to 3 bedrooms, suited to any length of stay. Soak up city views from a private balcony or soak in a sensuous bathtub. A fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and dryer make you feel like home. 

Shama Lakeview Asoke is walking distance to public transport, shopping malls, restaurants, and the Central Business District. Relax by the peaceful lake at Benchakiti Park or make the most of the hotel’s complimentary buggy service to the supermarket. A perfect location both business and leisure travellers.
