In the epicenter of Bangkok’s tourist area, on Sukhumvit Soi 20, this eco-conscious, luxury boutique hotel with rooftop pool is a private city sanctuary that seamlessly blends Thai art and culture with modern design and hospitality.
There’s an eco ethos and a playful-chic vibe to Akyra TAS Sukhumvit. Interiors combine the simplicity of natural wood with modern-retro accents in furnishings and well-chosen artwork. These stylish touches create a distinctive identity, but for the most part, the oversized rooms are styled to complement the unforgettable cityscape you see through floor-to-ceiling glass doors as you enter. Those glass doors slide open onto a balcony, too. Up on the roof, meantime, is that instantly recognizable pool, and a very nice bar and restaurant.
The sprawling metropolis of Bangkok—with its 8 million inhabitants, humid climate and mind boggling array of bars and restaurants—has much to offer, but don’t miss Lumpini Park near to the hotel. Originally meant to be an exhibition space for Thai crafts and flowers, the park is now Ground Zero for city dwellers looking to escape the teeming sidewalks and shopping malls and reconnect with nature. Come to exercise, pedal-boat on the lake, or goggle at the park’s infamous monitor lizards.
