The 13th-century Thai capital of Sukhothai was renowned for its harmonious lifestyle and architectural elegance, and the Sukhothai Hotel was inspired by these ideals. Set amid generous landscaped gardens and pools within Bangkok's banking and diplomatic zone, The Sukhothai offers traditional refinement with all the facilities of a first-class international hotel.
The spacious guest rooms and suites are impeccably styled to blend old world charm with modern needs and feature large bathrooms, Khmer-style carvings and Thai silks. Most rooms also offer views of the gardens.
The Sukhothai offers a variety of dining options including an award-winning traditional Thai restaurant which floats on a tranquil pond, a superb Italian restaurant, and a lively international restaurant with an open kitchen. Oysters with champagne and a never-ending Sunday brunch are two of The Sukhothai's popular dining offers.
The hotel also has a large pool, a highly-regarded spa, a gym, and tennis and squash courts. As you might expect of a hotel of this standard, service is attentive but discreet.
Merging colonial-era elegance with modern international business standards, the spacious rooms at The Sukhothai are extremely comfortable. Warm teakwood, neutral tones and sliding window screens give an intimate impression, while higher room categories feature balconies as well as Khmer-style carvings and raw silks. The bright, modern bathrooms have a separate bath and rain shower. Air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi and Nespresso coffee makers come as standard in all rooms categories.
The hotel is set in south Sathorn, Bangkok's upmarket commercial district and is a five minute jog from leafy Lumphini Park. Within walking distance of the hotel is the renowned Nahm Thai restaurant which has consistently ranked in Asia's top 50 restaurants (bookings should be made at least a month in advance) and two popular rooftop bars: the Vertigo and Moon Bar at the Banyan Tree (dress-code applies) and the chic HI-SO Rooftop Bar at SO Sofitel.
Food and Drink
The hotel's flagship restaurant is the Celadon, a floating pavilion set on a tranquil pond filled with lotus flowers. The menu features classic Thai dishes cooked to perfection and attracts a busy stream of diners. La Scala serves creative Italian dishes in chic surroundings, while the Colonnade serves a wide array of international foods with live cooking stations and sushi preparation on display during the day.
Facilities and Activities
The Sukhothai has a large outdoor pool set in lush gardens as well as a well-equipped gym and tennis and squash courts. The Spa Botanica is elegantly designed and offers a wide range of traditional treatments.
A stylishly elegant hotel popular with international business clientele, The Sukhothai offers top notch facilities and faultless service, we especially love the range of dining options in the hotel and the local area.
