Bangkok. Like every big city there’s no shortage of luxury boltholes. Where to start one might wonder? Well start at The Sukhothai, a hotel boasting the perfect blend of old Asian charm, excellent cuisine and service so good you’ll think the ‘City of Angels’ got its name from the hotel staff.
The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is a modern metropolis dotted with reminders of a culture centred on the Theravada Buddhist faith. Situated in the city’s Downtown, just off the Chao Phrya river and a stone’s throw from Lumpini Park, the Sukhothai is ideally located, the standout five-star springboard from which to discover the capital.
Beauty reigns with effortless grace at the Sukhothai, a hotel where the eye tends to wander from wonder to wonder like a channel flicking teenager who’s stumbled on the best day’s television EVER. Some of the world’s finest couturiers, architects and designers have put their immaculately conceived heads together to create a quite stunning hotel and grounds. We love the vast rooms, the day-long-dream-inducing beds, the teak finish and the wonderfully oversized bath tubs. In short, a stay at the Sukhothai means beauty, comfort and luxury in very welcome abundance.
Why we like it
The Sukhothai employs some of the most impressive, gregarious and professional staff in the business. So, we love the service, but we love the food too. Alongside the wagyu beef roast, the excellent hot and cold foie gras, and oysters from the seas of France, Japan and Australia, the hotel boasts a go-on-and-spoil-yourself array of fine French cheeses, wines and champagnes. Chok dee!
