Sofitel So Bangkok, Thailand
The Sofitel So label are boutique hotels characterized by a focus on contemporary design, and style by famous architects and/or embellished by celebrities from the world of art, design, or fashion.
Our last two nights in Thailand were made great by Sofitel So Bangkok.
Like our last stay at Sofitel Sukhumvit Bangkok the service was outstanding, the design inspirational, and we were made to feel very at home and extremely comfortable.
Located in a central location of Bangkok, directly opposite of Lumpini park, the unique vantage point offers fantastic views of the city and a green oasis.
Sofitel So Bangkok is an urban design hotel with themed accommodation created around the five elements-Water, Earth, Wood, Metal, and Fire.
A collaboration of French elements and local Thai style, it is a piece of art.
Each element was designed by five different artists, with the fifth being Fire used in public areas and restaurants creating energy, playfulness, and warmth.
Cody and I had a choice of which element we wanted to stay in. They are all beautifully designed and decorated, but we chose the Earth element.
At first we mistook our room for Water, being that it was very blue, but after examining it further, we noticed the cave paintings on the floor to ceiling curtains, as well as on the walls, giving the room a very warm feel.
Our Earth room was inspired by the caves in the North of Thailand, it was calm, comforting and curvy.
Our bathroom was large and gorgeous with black and white checkered floors and an elegant above ground bath tub. We got the best rest in our king size bed with no disturbance from the sunlight peaking in, thanks to the electronic night shades.
We ordered room service through Apple TV, another great addition to our amazing room.
The tree of life, Sofitel So Bangkok’s signature emblem was designed by Christian Lacroix, and encapsulates all of the five elements into one.
He also designed Sofitel So Bangkok’s club signature floor. A bold and colourful room full of life and creativity. I adored the eclectic staff uniforms designed with the sharp lines of French tailoring while using vibrant colours and florals of traditional Thai dress.
We were upgraded to club signature on the 25th floor, giving us the luxury of club benefits like all day refreshments; coffee, tea, and snacks, complimentary signature tea from 2:30 to 4:30, ExtenSo-Late check out until 4pm, complimentary signature evening cocktails and snacks from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, and much more.
Sofitel So Bangkok has two floors of wellness to choose from: On the 10th floor a beautiful infinity pool with a wonderful view of Lumpini Park, and So Spa located on the 11th floor with the theme being a mythological forest.
There is also the 24 hour So Fit gym on the 10th floor.
There are several dining and sipping options to choose from. We loved the SO Moonlit Cabanas, located on the rooftop of the hotel, an extension of Park Society.
There is also the wonderful aroma of Chocolab in the lower lobby, the Fire themed Red Oven, World Food Market on the 7th floor, MIXO Liquids and Stories on the 9th floor, and Park Society on the 29th floor.
We truly couldn’t have asked for a better, more comfortable place to stay on our last 2 nights in Bangkok than Sofitel So Bangkok. We loved the playfulness and artistic energy of the hotel, and as we expected the service was phenomenal.
