Sukhumvit neighbourhood has always been a foodie hotspot alongside with many boutique and designed hotels for every type of patron – locals and international visitors. The expat living lifestyle has also added a supply and demand in its rocket high real estate as well as a more sophisticated diverse culture in the dining scene. Tucked away in a sprawling inner suburb of Sukhumvit or rather an upscale precinct by itself where it is home to many Japanese expats and given that it is not on one of the main thoroughfares but easily accessed from the Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station with a short walk in this vibrant neighbourhood and offers bespoke facilities for leisure, business and long stay guests.
Known for its chic interior, the property consists of 179 residences and a 34-luxurious suite hotel located from the 24th to 32nd floor and are named after the great royal periods in Thai history, with four luxurious categories, the Rattanakosin Suites, The Ayuthaya Suites, the Sukhothai Suites and the Thonburi Suites of one and two bedrooms in each category. The architecture of this urban boutique hotel is naturally a striking departure from apartment buildings and sets the scene for an elevated experience. A secluded and intimate garden well designed with a lush of green fencing the entrance of the property, keeping some privacy and the noise out from the bustling soi Sukhumvit 39 with outdoor seatings adjacent to its Bangkok Trading Post all-day-dining bistro.
The koi pond adorned with wooden deck setting and outdoor seating arrangement as well as a white “cage” pergola among other decorative elements created an absolute secluded oasis in the city and attracts many passers-by attention to take a break for a cuppa that is well suited for day and evening hangout in different mood and ambience setting alongside with its jazzy music plays.
Despite securing your best seat of the limited availability of sun lounges on the spectacular roof top infinity swimming pool and hot tub jacuzzi which can be a challenge, the round the clock swimming pool opens 24-7, allows you to swim under the stars while enjoying the moonlight serenade.
The breakfast certainly caters for all tastes with a casual dining affair. A small buffet that hits the mark on all counts and then you can have an unlimited order of main courses with a specially designed a la carte menu, which for us is the perfect way to enjoy a leisurely breakfast.
