Located on one of Bangkok's most prominent business districts in Sathorn and being the oldest hotel along Sathorn road, the appearances on arrival to The Sukhothai Bangkok are not deceiving and exceeds its standard in providing the utmost hospitality, simply circumspect, mindful and professional. And of course, authentically Thai! mylifestylenews writes.


Turning in from the bustling Sathorn road immediately gives you an impression of an oasis in the urban living in Bangkok. Giant trees are aligned on the driveway along with water feature walls and surrounded by picturesque lotus ponds that hold the award winning Celadon Thai restaurant.


Since its opening in 1991 and after 27 years of its establishment, its modern contemporary Thai design is the work of Kerry Hills Architects.

The hotel is a compound of its own and there are beautiful gardens and courtyards and colonnades everywhere and sitting rooms that offer more private zones. The courtyards are adorned with white columns, and the corridors remind one of temple galleries.



Long colonnades open onto a gigantic lotus pond, with a vast piece of land and its infamous garden and lawn is simply a serene oasis in the typical bustling Bangkok minus all the noise from the traffic and sprouting billboards.


The landscaping is simply harmony to meet the objective of the design to achieve a delicate balance between form and function, paying utmost respect to the building’s heritage.
