Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit showcases ‘French elegance’ in Bangkok

Sofitel announced the opening of Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, the second Sofitel in Bangkok, in Thailand.

Located on the central business district, the hotel has 345 rooms including 37 suites. It is the first flagship Sofitel in South East Asia, while Sofitel Bangkok Silom is rebranding to become a Pullman hotel. At the same time, Sofitel So Bangkok was launched as the first urban design hotel under the Sofitel So label.

Featured in the hotel is the skyline restaurant, L’Appart. Directed by French chef Aurelien Poirot, it is based on a Haussmann-style apartment with bespoke areas including a library, a living room, a kitchen with an adjacent dining room, and lounge area with a bar. The space features an interactive open kitchen concept, with outside tables overlooking a backdrop of the city skyline.


There is also a French element in the Sofitel’s restaurant, Voila!, which showcases a “cuisines on stage” concept that features French cuisine prepared from stoves and a Parisian-style Rotisserie, Western, Asian dishes, Middle Eastern and Thai delicacies.

Located in the lobby is Le Macaron, which is a patisserie and delicatessen with an outdoor terrace. Also a feature of the hotel is the Club Millesime lounge located on the 31st floor, featuring business facilities and lounge areas.

In addition, leisure facilities include an outdoor swimming pool with pool bar, fitness center, beauty salon and Le Spa with L’Occitane, the first luxury spa in Thailand to offer L’Occitane products from the south of France.
