Whether you’re looking for gorgeous park views, creatively designed and comfortable guest rooms, a central location with easy access to public transportation, or the touches and amenities of a five-star luxury hotel, Sofitel So Bangkok has you covered.
The hotel’s 238 guest rooms and suites, which have been created by some of Thailand’s top interior designers, vary according to a ‘Five Elements’ theme. Rooms are furnished in classic wood (Wood Element), in modern white and sleek metallic (Metal Element), in rich blue (Earth Element) or in a timeless, sophisticated style with marble walls (Water Element).
At Sofitel So Bangkok, you are actually staying in four completely different design hotels. The Elements theme carries over to the fifth element, Fire, which refers to the hotel’s eateries. All guest rooms and suites are outfitted with high-tech (but easy-to-use) gadgets, including a Mac Mini and wireless keyboard, giving you the option of surfing the web on your TV while lying in bed.
The shared spaces here are equally inspiring, from the rooftop Park Society, home to a glitzy chef’s table and outdoor cocktail bar, to Red Oven, the worldly “marketstyle” restaurant on the seventh floor. Then there’s the ground-floor Chocolab, a unique chocolate delicatessen, along with MIXO, the lobby bar that enjoys a beautiful view of Lumpini Park. And that’s just the food and drinks.
Sofitel So Bangkok also features a stylish 10th-floor pool deck, including an infinity pool, a full-service fitness centre (So Fit), a Solarium garden terrace for sun tanning and socialising, and the luxurious So Spa, which recreates a charming mythological forest. Christian Lacroix designed the staff uniforms in the hotel, as well as the swanky 25th floor Club Signature, an exclusive lounge for club-level guests with private meeting spaces, breakfast service and more.
