  • 10 Reasons to Stay at The Sukhothai Hotel Bangkok

    We loved it and here’s why

    The Sukhothai Hotel Bangkok is one of the most iconic hotels in the Thai capital. Designed by critically acclaimed architects from around the world, this hotel takes on a distinctly historical Siamese feel, with its overwhelming influence – and name – derived from the former ancient capital city of Thailand, Sukhothai. Its great central Bangkok location also means it’s great for both business and tourist guests, walking distance from Surasak BTS Skytrain and Lumpini MRT Station. 

    Stunning stupas and Buddha statues are scattered around the hotel interior and its tropical gardens areas, quaint lotus ponds create a sense of peace and tranquilly, and the luxurious rooms address the ‘teak’ and ‘silk’ elements that are key to traditional Thai design. However, this five-star hotel offers much more than just a pretty face. We stayed and found 10 reasons that will make you want book a night, or five, in The Sukhothai Hotel during your next trip to Bangkok.

    La Scala

    The Sukhothai Hotel’s famous Italian restaurant, La Scala, frequently welcomes often multi-Michelin-star chefs from Europe into its kitchen. Big names to grace La Scala include Edouard Loubet, a two-Michelin star chef and owner of Star La Bastide de Capelongue in Bonnieux, France, as well as Pascal Barbot, who has an incredible three Michelin stars to his name. 

    Enter of World of Ancient Siamese Design
    Ancient Siamese Design

    The moment you step inside The Sukhothai Bangkok, you are greeted with a sense of ancient Siamese nostalgia. From the grand lobby entrance, to the ancient Siamese artefacts and artwork placed strategically throughout the hotel, the whole place oozes a distinctly historical feel. Look out for the iconic line of chedis (Buddhist stupas) in their central atrium-like pond for a perfect photo-op too.

    Sample Oysters, Lobster, Sashimi and a Foie Gras – All for Brunch!
    Sunday brunch

    Instead of describing how mouth-wateringly delicious The Sukhothai’s Sunday brunch is, we’ll just list some of the items available instead: four different kinds of fresh oyster, Maine lobster, sautéed foie gras, salmon and tuna tartar, Japanese sashimi, venison civet, wild boar terrine, roasted Wagyu prime ribs, thirty verities of cheese, Parma ham...drooling yet?

    Relax to the Sound of Birdsong in a Tropical Oasis

    If you stay in Bangkok for long enough, you might forget what birds chirping away in trees sounds like. Remedy this problem by heading to The Sukhothai’s central garden, complete with a tranquil lotus pond, a shaded bench area and, of course, the rare (for Bangkok) sound of birdsong.

    Bangkok’s Only Five-Star Chocolate Buffet!

    The Sukhothai Hotel boasts Bangkok’s only five-star chocolate buffet every Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon between 14:00-17:00. Local, homemade chocolate is available alongside imports from all around the world. As well as a chocolate fondue station, there are also savoury offerings, including cold cuts, sushi and sandwiches. 

    A Better Than Cinema In-Room Experience

    With huge, ultra-comfy beds, movies on demand, in-built flat screen TVs, surround sound system, a well stocked mini-bar and room lighting/air-conditioning controls at your bedside, we think watching a movie here easily beats the sticky floors and sound of pop-corn being chewed at your local cinema any day.

    Ease Away Your Jet Lag in the Garden Spa

    Spa Botanica, The Sukhothai Hotel’s very own onsite spa, does a wonderful range a massage and spa treatments. If you’ve just got off the plane, try their Jetlag Massage, which is designed to ease away those aches and pains and prepare you for exploring Bangkok.

    Discover Royal Thai Food in a Traditional Sala
    Traditional Sala

    The Celadon is The Sukhothai’s award-winning Thai restaurant, serving exquisite Thai food inspired by royal dishes that have barely changed their recipes over the years. The restaurant is housed in a traditional Thai sala (pavilion) surrounded by a lush lotus pond. 

    Romantic Couples’ Escape

    With a distinctly calm and relaxed ambiance (we didn’t see one child running about), the hotel has an undeniably sophisticated and romantic charm. As well as being pretty on the eye, couples can explore the vast grounds, take a spa treatment together, and even have a private candle lit dinner in the garden of the Celadon restaurant. This could lead to our next reason...

    Iconic Wedding Location

    Whilst The Sukhothai is a hugely popular hotel for foreign visitors, mention its name to a Bangkokian and they might tell you that they know somebody who once got married there. With a private ball room and room for hire in their Thai restaurant – not forgetting endless photo opportunities for the married couple around the grounds, this is a perfect place for a wedding reception.
