Artistic design are found everywhere in the hotel
There are high ceilings with space galore, floor to ceiling windows which can be curtained off at the touch of a button, so the last thing you see before going to bed and the first thing you do when you wake up is to stare at the far reaching drop-dead-gorgeous views of Bangkok’s skyline and Lumpini Park aka the miniature version of Central New York right in front.
As featured in the hotel, the first four elements inspire the design of guestrooms spread respectively over different floors, while Fire is represented in the all day dining restaurant by the signature Red Oven. While you won’t get to stay in all four elements represented in the guestroom designs, the mood shifts from immaculate white (Metal), to ravishing blue (Earth), a calming wood and light interactive design (Wood) and dark and mysterious tones (Water). All rooms have floor to ceiling windows for you to absorb the striking views of Bangkok.

Lumpini Park plays a very important part where the five elements are readily in evidence – the earth of the ground and soil, the wood of the trees, the water of the ponds, the metal of the surrounding environment, and the fire of the sun overhead. Subsequently, these elements give you reasons to pause, reflect, relax, indulge and take time out to enjoy the world passing by outside the hotel’s doors.
With his magic adding to the stunning five elements inspired designs, you will discover Sofitel SO Bangkok differently even from the staff eclectic and spiffing uniform design that bringing bold colors and floral touches into designs that merge traditional Thai dress with the sharp lines of French tailoring. An Asian-inspired nouveau take on the age-old motif, the powerful “Neo Arbre de Vie” is the realized vision of a true artist and an emblem unique to Sofitel SO Bangkok.
