The Sofitel SO/Bangkok opened its doors in 2012 overlooking Bangkok’s Lumpini park. Inspired by the five elements of water, earth, fire, metal, and wood, the 238 rooms and suites were designed by French fashion designer Christian Lacroix and five local Thailand designers (one per each element area)
Here’s some images and how the property describes the lofty suite from their website:
Size doesn’t matter, said only the smallest room ever. If space is what you want, SO Lofty suites offer plenty of room to stay and play, brought to life with interior touches by Monsieur Christian Lacroix, plus coveted access to Club Signature. So Lofty comes in Metal, Wood, and Water elements.
95-120 m2 suite, Lumpini park or city view, spacious living area, Sofitel MyBed, 40” LCD TV, Apple Mac Mini, free WIFI, free minibar, Illy coffee machine. Club signature benefits. Choice of metal, wood or water suite subject to availability.
Here is our video review and commentary on the Lofty Suite:
Sofitel SO/ brand is going for that modern, trendy luxury look aiming for a younger clientele, like the Ws or Andaz hotels, but going further on amenities. The Mac Minis in the rooms is definitely a highlight on the suite amenities! I like the suite design as it looks modern and fresh yet very luxurious.
