Description

SO/ Bangkok fits right into the colorful chaos of Thailand’s vibrant capital — the 30-story building overlooks verdant Lumphini Park and the city’s modern skyscrapers, making for some spectacular views from guest rooms, the top-floor spa, an outdoor glass-walled swimming pool and the several in-house restaurants and bars (including a fashionable rooftop watering hole).

The rooms are divided into five groups, following the elements of Chinese culture – water, wood, earth, metal, and fire- each designed by a Thai artist. The metal rooms gleam all white, while the earth rooms are modeled on grottos with odd sliding doors and dark blue walls covered in sketches of exotic animals. All are in fine shape and come with a coffee maker and special Chinese tea. In the water-themed rooms — created by Pongthep Sagulku of August Design — soothing shades of gray ripple across the walls, and a vast onyx bathtub takes center stage. More abstract, the wild earth-themed rooms are the vision of IAW Design’s Vitoon Kunalungkarn, with vivid purple-blue hues and animal motifs running across the walls. Meanwhile, the sleek wood rooms have gleaming hardwood floors and vertical bamboo-like beams, and the metal rooms inherit a minimalistic Japanese aesthetic with clean white walls and accents with a splash of sparkle.

The large infinity pool has excellent views over Lumpini Pathere’s, a small but perfectly adequate gym, and a well-equipped spa that continues the hotel’s aesthetic marriage of loud French style and gentle Thai ambiance. The staff are friendly, forthcoming, dressed, and c, oriented to the nines in the Lacroix style. State-of-the-art technology is at the heart of the guest experience. A press reader offers more than 2000 publications daily for guests’ digital devices, and suites come with an iPad.

The SO/ Bangkok has two restaurants and three bars. The space with the most apparent connection to fire is Red Oven, a hugely popular open-kitchen buffet meant to resemble a market. Dine on pan-Asian and European eats while watching chefs cook in the substantial central red oven. Mixo (shortened from “Mixology Bar”) is a chill lobby lounge that pours molecular cocktails. And serving an international menu and experimental tipples, the stylish Hi-So Rooftop bar exudes sophistication from its more subdued 29th-floor perch. When the lights go down, the poolside cocktail bar of The Water Club comes alive with comfortable lounge chairs, moody tunes, and unbeatable views. Don’t miss the venue’s famous SO Pool Party on the last Saturday of each month.
