Sofitel opens second So in Bangkok
Singapore, February 29, 2012

SOFITEL Luxury Hotels has officially opened the Sofitel So Bangkok, the second global address for the design-focused brand after Sofitel So Mauritius.


“With the opening of this hotel, we are able to diversify our offering in this city with a unique designer establishment aimed at a more urban clientèle,” said Robert Gaymer-Jones, CEO Sofitel Worldwide.


Situated close to Bangkok’s business district and Lumpini Park, Sofitel So Bangkok offers 238 Apple Computer-powered guestrooms and suites (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 20, 2011).


The hotel features three F&B outlets – including a themed eatery, a rooftop restaurant-bar and a chocolate deli – as well as a fitness centre, a spa, and a swimming pool.


MICE facilities include a 380m2 pillar-less ballroom, and various meeting rooms—including one suspended in mid-air with three glass walls overlooking the city.


In related developments for the brand, two new Sofitel So properties are under construction in Mumbai and Singapore.
