Luxury hotel Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit unveils brand-new design
Thailand recorded 11.4 million foreign tourist arrivals between January-June 11 this year, surpassing the 11.15 million foreign visitors that came to the Asian country in the whole of 2022.
As tourism continues to make a strong comeback, the country’s hospitality industry will be the backbone to support that resurgence in travel to the Asian country. Bangkok, with its international airport, is quickly developing a strong hospitality industry that can lead the recovery from the front.
While there are plenty of hospitality options available in the capital city, only a handful serve as exemplary luxury properties with elevated levels of hospitality. A prime example among them is the Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit hotel.
Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit recently underwent an extensive, thorough and impressive refurbishment that has enhanced the hotel’s aesthetics and its guest offerings. It has given the iconic property a fresh appeal and one that quickly resonates with guests.
Entering the property, you’ll notice that it blends the intricate French aesthetic with local-inspired traditional Thai design elements. That design fusion is evident in the revamped lobby with a magnificent chandelier that resembles the revered “Wai and Water” Thai gesture.
The 345-key property has a combination of rooms and suites. These range from 176 Luxury rooms to three Imperial suites. Each Imperial suite is 168 sqm and has a living and dining room, balcony, spa bath and a king-size bed. Key highlights of the hotel’s rooms include Balmain Paris bath amenities, in-room smart tablets, separate bathtubs and showers, LED TVs and universal sockets to ensure that international travellers can seamlessly charge their devices.
Business travellers have plenty of options at this hotel including 15 meeting rooms. For larger events, the Le Grand Ballroom has a capacity of 800 people and also has a movable LED wall. The hotel is also well integrated with the city’s transport system via a Skybridge that links to both BTS Asok and MRT Sukhumvit thereby facilitating the movement of conference and event attendees visiting the hotel.
Leisure amenities here include a Sofitel Spa with L’Occitane on the ninth floor, as well as a Sofitel Fitness centre that is open throughout the day, besides an outdoor pool on the ninth floor of the property too.
Meanwhile, F&B options at the hotel include Belga Rooftop Bar and Brasserie which has panoramic skyline views of the city and can host up to 200 guests. An outdoor seating area is perfect to take in the views from the 32nd floor.
Other F&B options include Le Macaron and as well as Maison Mizuki. Le Macaron is a French café that brings a fresh interpretation of the traditional French afternoon tea experience and is a great place to sample some exquisite French pastries and freshly-baked bread, besides a range of organic teas. Maison Mizuki meanwhile has an impressive collection of spirits that can be perfectly paired with sushi creations that are a work of art in themselves.
A special mention must also be reserved for the property’s all-day dining restaurant of Voilà! Here, not only is the lavish breakfast buffet served that is definitely worth waking up early for, but the cuisines served over the remainder of the day cover Western and Thai origins allowing visitors to sample not only local cuisine, but also dishes from several other countries too.
With a central location, great leisure and business facilities, as well as class-leading F&B and accommodation offerings, Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit continues to play a pivotal role and support the current boom in tourists coming to Thailand’s capital in search of luxury experiential properties.
