as the gateway to the South, Bangkok Asia has the important task of welcoming travelers from all over the world in the region. So it’s a good thing that this city has much boss Hotels. And as someone who gets asked where to stay in the capital of the recommendations of the Thailand, often, I think that it my duty and pleasure to review the options for you here. I know! I just give until it hurts.
while talking to TBEX Asia, I had the pleasure of staying in an absolutely magnificent hotel that has rocked my socks off. Designed by Christian Lacroix and tauted as combining luxury French and Thai culture, this could well be the amazing place I’ve ever stayed in the city. Bangkok Sofitel So, you are indeed an amazing product.
, Sofitel So is located in Sathorn, surrounded by embassies and a short walk from the trendy district of Silom, which is is home to some of the most famous bars and restaurants of Bangkok. The hotel overlooks Lumpini Park, response from Bangkok to NYC clean, Central Park and provides free bicycles for you will discover lush with paths.
there are four different categories in the hotel, each representing one of the elements of the room – in metal, wood, Earth, water Earth. I was assigned to a room of the Earth, inspired by a Thai set of caves and ancient murals that adorn the.
the darkness and bending walls created a cosy atmosphere perfect for resting and recharging between sessions of the Conference, while provided comfortable office space a space perfect for working on my presentation. Also fantastic for the renewal of itself after a busy day of urban adventures? The beautiful bath that was the centerpiece of the suite.
free wifi was one time, free minibar access was a welcome bonus.
Sofitel So Bangkok is home to a trio of restaurants – red oven, Park Society-Chocolab – only the first I tested. Having said that, I stop being the Société du parc for a drink on the roof to its buzzy bar one evening, and I melt through the chocolate buffet at Chocolab for a sugar hit a morning.
maybe my favorite on revival the Bangkok Sofitel so part? As soon as the small lunch every day at the Red of the oven. The breakfast buffet here is perhaps the most impressive I’ve seen anywhere in Thailand – essentially the highest compliment a breakfast lover such as myself can I grant.
If you need to work off buffet after a few calories, Sofitel So has covered you. On the spot if Fit gym is not just beautifully appointed with views of Lumpini Park, they also offer fitness classes!
my biggest regret of the stay was that my schedule does not allow me to attend one, although I have to sneak in two short workouts on machines, but also a race into beautiful Lumpini Park. If you need to relax after a workout, on-site spa looked divine.
but also beautiful and instagram-able as the rooms, buffet breakfast and gym all can be – and beautiful, they really are – the real jaw dropper is the 32-metre swimming pool. Or, more accurately, the views of not only the treasure which is Lumpini Park, but also the horizon of Sukhumvit beyond.
while the pool was an oasis of relaxation during my visit, the last Saturday of each month, they turn upwards the volume for what is widely known as part of the pool of Bangkok, which you will receive free entry to the. Day drinking with this point of view? Hoping that I have the chance to strike up a day in the future!
room for improvement
the disadvantages were rare and minor – I do not like having to change elevator bank in the lobby floor ninth to gain access to my room from the entrance of the hotel, the immediately the area around the hotel was not super interesting (although close to Silom is fabulous) and I wanted the Skytrain was closer (if there is one metro stop one to three minutes walking).
above all, I wish I had had more time to stay and play at the hotel! Just walking in Bangkok Sofitel therefore want to vacation, and I intend to return someday when I have more time to enjoy the comfort of this beautiful hotel in Bangkok. Rooms from about $140 per night, it is a little outside my target rate range usual (I am always amazed by what you can get in Bangkok for less than 100 dollars) but the luxury level corresponds to the price bump and I would absolutely return for a splurge.
