[Bangkok] Review: Club Suite at The Sukhothai
On this trip to Bangkok, we stayed at the newly renovated Club Wing at The Sukhothai Bangkok! The residential-style Club Wing consists of 33 rooms and suites which combines classic Thai decor with modern technology. Upon arrival, we were taken to the exclusive Club Lounge on the sixth floor and finished the check-in process right in our room. The Club Wing has 6 room types and we stayed in the spacious Club Suite with separate living, dining and sleeping areas.
😍 My face when I saw our suite!
The dining room features a dining table, high-definition 65" LED television which can swivel to any direction, and a mini bar area with a Nespresso machine and premium Saro lotus tea blended especially for the hotel.
The living room has ample lounging space and a desk for working.
The bed was super comfortable with 400-thread count cotton sheets, and 100% duck down pillows and duvets.
You will find the plushiest terry robes ever in the walk-in wardrobe space plus a personal safe that is the size of a laptop.
The bathroom features a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower enclosure with Bottega Veneta bath amenities as well as a high-tech Japanese toilet.
The luxurious details extend all the way to the hair dryer - a Dyson!
Another great feature was this console which controlled everything in the room from the temperature, lighting etc.
All rooms, suites and club lounge in the Club Wing have views of the pool and gardens.
The gorgeous infinity outdoor pool (25 meters long) is right behind the Club Wing and apparently one of the largest in Bangkok with plenty of sunbeds and cabanas! Service was quick and prompt with staff providing towels and iced water once we have chosen a spot.
Also located in the Club Wing is a high-tech fitness studio with a range of state-of-the-art equipment.
The hotel itself feels like a resort in the heart of Bangkok's business district as the grounds are vast and the buildings are located a good distance away from the main roads.
The hotel has 7 dining concepts onsite - perhaps the most famous one is the legendary Sunday champagne brunch at The Colonnade. Other main restaurants include La Scala which serves Italian cuisine and Celadon which serves Thai cuisine. My eating schedule was tight so I only had the chance to try Celadon for dinner one night. The restaurant was housed in a traditional Thai structure surrounded by a beautiful lotus pond; we had the tasting menu (2,900 THB per person) which featured a series of authentic Thai dishes with a modern twist.
Traditional Thai appetizer of fresh watermelon topped with barracuda fish, crispy shallots and garlic
Steamed rice dumpling filled with crab meat and shimeji mushrooms flavored with garlic-coriander roots and pepper
Grilled Hokkaido scallops with seablite leaves, shallots and homemade chili paste dressing
Chicken thigh in coconut milk and galanga shoot soup with kaffir lime leaves
Grilled giant river prawn cooked with salted baby shrimps in fresh coconut milk
Grilled Australian wagyu beef cheek with dried panaeng curry in banana leaves
Wok-fried bitter-sweet melon with egg and garlic
Warm glutinous rice balls with salted egg
Besides Celadon, I also had the chance to try the in-room breakfast and the Club Lounge which provides a la carte breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails for guests staying in the Club Wing. The quality of the food was high (especially the pastries) and I loved the meticulous details of the fruits with the watermelon hearts!
Lots of space in the Club Lounge.
Aside from the a la carte options, an impressive selection of continental breakfast are laid out on the buffet counter as well.
Enjoying an avocado toast, french toast, pastries, and seasonal ripe mango on my last day in Bangkok. Thank you to The Sukhothai Bangkok for the fabulous stay!
