The moment you step into SoSPA in SO Sofitel Bangkok, the first thing to grab your attention is the lush green of Lumpini Park’s view though the floor to ceiling glass window behind the reception desk. Looking down further, just a floor below is the SO infinity pool that is another most popular hangout in the hotel.
An alternative stairway entrance from the swimming pool to the spa.
The lounge is well designed and decorated with high rattan cushioned chairs and aligned with old cabinet in Thai motifs that displayed their accolades and spa products. With an after treatments relaxing lounge bed adjacent to the lounge, the room was designed in a minimalist concept that is accented with refined wood grain panels on the wall and a tasteful flower arrangement brings live to the ambience.

The hallway with hand painted mythical Himmapan forest motif leading to the spa treatment rooms.
The inspiration comes from Asian folklore of the mythical Himmapan forest where it was believed that the forests are located below the Buddhist heavens and are invisible to the eyes of mortals, who can never approach or enter. The forests have many strange animals or mythical creatures decorating the scenes and most of them are what can be described as a “combined-animal” – a horse with a bird’s head, a man with lion body and etc who dwell in the legendary Himmapan Forest.
