The Sukhothai Hotel Bangkok
In the heart of bustling Bangkok’s embassy and business district lies the beautiful Sukhothai Hotel. The Sukhothai is everything you would expect from a luxury hotel in a major city, with easy access to major transportation systems (skytrain and subway), impeccable service and facilities that rival any globally recognized hotel. From first entry into this lovely metropolitan palace, fragrant Thai flowers and gently flowing water overcome the senses in the most sensual of ways as soft-spoken staff usher guests into the serene interiors.
Guestrooms are luxuriously elegant with the Sukhothai’s signature silver and gold tones, creating a tranquil sanctuary from external noise, traffic and activity. All of the rooms incorporate local Thai fabrics as well as hand-crafted teakwood furniture and either hardwood floors or soft silver toned carpeting. Most have views of the lotus pond, surrounded by blooming tropical flowers. Venture out of the suites’ sanctuary and explore the hotel’s many facilities.
An 82 feet infinity-edge swimming pool is a gracious reprieve from the sun’s heat, as is the stunning Spa Botanica, with packages such as the Thailand Flower Ritual, which includes a pebble foot bath, deep tissue dry massage, jasmine herbal body scrub, fragrant flower bath and another aromatherapy massage. For those seeking more strenuous forms of relieving stress, the Sukhothai has alliances with some of Bangkok’s best golf courses, offering its guests tailored packages to please the most discerning golfers.
With seven dining options it will be difficult finding time to explore Bangkok’s myriad of eateries, especially with one of the world’s most highly acclaimed Thai restaurants, Celadon, in the house. Celadon is a foodie’s dream materialized with classically designed Thai salas surrounded by a soothing lotus pond, offering authentic cuisine from all regions of Thailand. Sit by the window under dim lighting and gaze upon the water gently lapping on the blossoms and lose yourself in the fiery flavors of hot curries, spicy peppers and refreshing herbs. All of Sukhothai’s dining options will leave lasting impressions of how much care has been taken not only in the fresh flavors of the dishes but also in the intricately designed presentations of something as simple as a fruit platter.
Sukhothai is the perfect choice for an exceptional stay in Bangkok, with its close proximity to the Chao Phraya River and Silom Road, where many top shops and local markets lie. Genuine smiles and gracious hospitality complete a truly spectacular hotel.
