First look: Super-chic akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok set to open this December

Bangkok has seen a number of new hotel openings this year — including the glamorous Park Hyatt Bangkok — and now there’s one more you need to know about: akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok. Akaryn Hotel Group is well known for its exclusive collection of luxury boutique hotels and resorts, such as akyra Manor Chiang Mai and Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa, so you can expect this brand-new property to be top-notch. Fortunately for those seeking for a new staycation option in town, the new akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok will open its doors to welcome guests from 1 December 2017.

The 50-room hotel is situated on Sukhumvit Soi 20, a lively neighbourhood known for its fine restaurants and buzzy bars, as well as the latest lifestyle community malls and quality spas. Each of the guest rooms range from 30 to 40 square metres and offer stunning cityscape views of Bangkok. Step into one of the stellar suites and you’ll immediately notice the spectacular vistas via the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open onto beautiful balconies. The use of natural warm wood, modern-retro chic accents and local artwork all lend the rooms and suites a sense of contemporary sophistication. Although it’s an urban city hotel, it has its own distinctive identity and the rustic charm that can be found in all akyra properties.

Of course, the cosy boutique has plenty of gourmet experiences to offer. Here, you can begin your day with the signature breakfast at the all-day dining restaurant on the ground floor. On the menu, you’ll find a delectable spread of comfort foods and international favourites, as well as authentic Thai dishes. At sunset, you’re invited to enjoy a drink and take in the beautiful orange and red hues at the hotel’s sophisticated rooftop space and stylish pool bar. With sun loungers and comfy cabanas positioned around reflective waters, the area lets you relax and unwind with dramatic vistas of Bangkok. When evening comes, the rooftop bar serves as a live music venue and transforms into a sweet spot for sundowners after work or before heading out to get your night started.
