Have I found the perfect place to recommend to friends looking for a stylish hotel in Bangkok? LiT BANGKOK Hotel & Residence boasts a convenient address, dramatic international flair and a top spa. Emblematic of a new breed of chic hotel-residence hybrids, LiT Bangkok offers quirky but comfortable hotel rooms and elegant long-term suites and studios. What more could a global nomad ask for?
LiT BANGKOK in Siam Square is just steps away from the city’s top shopping malls, the BTS and attractions such as Jim Thompson House, but offers the benefits of a luxury resort with two pools, a chill-out exterior lounge and superb dining.
There are clever design touches in nearly every detail such as the radical rethought of the stretched-aluminum facade to an innovative use of light and shadow which brings the interiors alive and changing throughout the day. The two-story hotel lobby atrium with a vertical glass geometric wall and bright coloured seating complete the ultra-modern Thai aesthetic.
Hotel rooms stand out for their bohemian glamour with funky bathrooms, warm wood flooring and white marble walls. Clean, contemporary furnishings round out the opulent, yet cosy decor.
Launched in November, The Residence section to the rear is intimate and elegant with its selection of studios and three-bedroom suites with kitchenettes. Long-staying guests appreciate the homey touches of dedicated reception, private pool and the Pasta & Pool restaurant with an extensive wine list and wide selection of fresh pastas.
With gorgeous curving walls, gentle lighting, shimmering mosaics and luxurious rooms, the Kiriya Spa ranks as one of the most alluring spas in Bangkok. Fabulous facials and sumptuous scrubs join a unique set of massages inspired by traditional Thai dance and culture.
The perfect choice to unwind after a long morning at the malls is the Nora dance-inspired massage with slow, but strong rhythmic strokes to ease away pains and stress. Or try the Hot Seashell Massage using a technique adapted from the traditional southern Thailand performance art piece Hooloo Vahi (water flow).
Hip and sophisticated, with a dash of glam and glitter, LiT Bangkok is in easy reach of the best Bangkok has to offer, but with all the benefits of a small intimate hotel.
