The only difficult part about staying at the So is at the end, when you have to leave. Luxury and refinement are the focus on each of the 30 floors of this huge hotel of 238 rooms, located close to Lumphini Park.
The Infinity pool on the tenth floor hosts a legendary pool party on the last Saturday of each month. The panoramic view from the terrace is as head-spinning as the cocktails. The all-wood spa offers a host of traditional treatments. You can relax in the lounge bar, entirely decorated by fashion designer Christian Lacroix artistic director of the institution or make custom chocolates in the extravagant chocolate shop in the lobby. But the best thing about this chic and charming hotel is the design of the rooms themselves.
Designed by renowned Thai designers around the four elements (wood, metal, water, earth), with interior waterfalls, wall reproductions of the oldest cave drawings in the country, metal mobiles, precious wood chests: each room is stunning. Feel free to travel: you can ask to ‘change elements' and therefore rooms every night.
