Accor announces opening of Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit

Image: Facilities include Le Spa with L'Occitane

France-based hospitality group Accor has announced the launch of the new flagship Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit hotel - the luxury brand's second property in Thailand's capital city.

Facilities include the 414sq m (4,456sq ft) Le Spa with L'Occitane, which features seven treatment rooms and is the first spa in Thailand to offer products from L'Occitane.

The treatment rooms each refer to a Thai and Provence feel, including two Lemongrass and Kaffir Lime Thai massage suites; one double Immortelle suite; and two Red Rice and Almond single suites.

An external massage sala and two Verbena and Lavender single suites complete the line-up of treatment rooms at the spa.

A 23m pool; a fitness centre with cardio and toning machines; a whirlpool; and a sauna and steamroom in each changing room are also available, in addition to a hydrotherapy bath.

Guests at the BBG-BBGM-designed hotel have access to the spa and fitness facilities, although non-guests are able to subscribe to the fitness centre for an additional fee.

Other facilities include the skyline restaurant, L'Appart, led by French chef Aurélien Poirot; the Voilà eatery; and Le Macaron, a patisserie and delicatessen.

A spokesperson said: "It is the first flagship Sofitel in South East Asia whilst Sofitel Bangkok Silom is rebranding to become a Pullman hotel.

"At the same time, Sofitel So Bangkok has been launched as the first urban design hotel under Sofitel So label, offering a different experience of discovering Bangkok."
