    Is this the most fashion-forward lifestyle hotel in Bangkok?

    SO Sofitel Bangkok, designed by Monsieur Christian Lacroix, claims to be the country’s most fashionable lifestyle hotel, and here’s why… 

    An urban luxury, design-led hotel, SO Sofitel Bangkok is a modern fusion of East meets West, and is the ideal spot for style-conscious travellers in Thailand. Designed in a unique collaboration with world-renowned fashion designer, Monsieur Christian Lacroix, and five of Thailand’s top designers.

    Touches of Monsieur Christian Lacroix are peppered throughout the property, from the playful staff uniforms, to the hotel’s logo and executive lounge, adorned with modernist artwork, colourful furniture and unrivalled views over the skyline. The elegant rooms are divided into the five elements of Chinese culture, with each designed by a different local artist. While metal rooms are washed in brilliant whites, those in water are rich, dark and intimate, to reflect the sensation of being underwater. Perhaps the most unusual are the earth suites, modelled on ancient grottos with deep blue walls decorated with sketches of mammoths and other exotic animals.

    With a variety of restaurants and bars, including a traditional street market style food hall with live cooking stations, a sleek rooftop restaurant and a boutique chocolate café, SO Sofitel Bangkok’s dining offering is second-to-none. The award-winning Park Society offers culinary creativity with unparalleled views of Lumpinki Park, whilst the innovative Chocolab serves-up chocolates from Bonnat, the world’s oldest chocolatier in France.

    Home to the hottest rooftop pool in Bangkok with panoramic views over Lumpinki Park. Style and elegance collide beautifully at SO Sofitel Bangkok, the Luxury five-star Hotel that’s setting a new standard for leisure hotels in Bangkok.
