It’s all about space, service and tranquillity at Sukhothai Bangkok. Named after an ancient Thai kingdom, the hotel uses local crafts throughout, giving a modern luxury experience whilst remaining Thai in feel. Located in the heart of Bangkok, Sukhothai is set in six acres of grounds where greenery and water abound. As you wander into the tree lined driveway and past the lily ponds, you enter a world far away from the frenetic city outside.
The abundance of space continues in the cool interior where the beautiful rooms start at a generous 38m². The suites have the most extravagant bathrooms complete with dressing area and large sized, high quality toiletries.
If you can drag yourself out of your opulent room you’ll find there’s a compact gym and a 25 metre pool to tempt you. Sunbeds are plentiful but the pool remains quiet and staff are immediately at hand to refill your complimentary glass of iced water should it run low, or if you feel like something a little stronger.
The buffet breakfast is not as extensive as you find in some of the larger hotels but it is more than adequate and high quality, with wonderful breads and cut meats among the usual hot offerings.
Sukhothai is a haven of peace and luxury amid the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
