Akyra苏坤威酒店紧挨着曼谷最热的两个豪华购物商场Emporium和EmQuartier。走进其中，深木色基调的大堂不仅暗示了其环境友好的属性，更将一丝优雅的年代感带入，前台挂满金色小铃铛的钥匙墙和绿色台灯突显了复古韵味，另一边的大堂咖啡厅Siam Soul则以大理石餐桌和金属吊灯将现代与古典结合，十分雅致，不论是早餐还是brunch， Siam Soul漂亮的出品总是吸引客人们忍不住按下快门。身着棕色制服的工作人员与酒店内部气氛和谐呼应，办理入住时他们会带你先在咖啡厅入座享用新鲜的果汁，运气好的话还会被亲切地告知已升级房型哦～
如果你喜欢在旅行中追随当地创意人或设计师，寻找具有前瞻性和国际视野的地点，在曼谷有很大可能你会被指向通罗。在这个众多时尚而优质的餐厅店铺集合的区域，Akyra通罗酒店也充分吸收其养分和创造力，在通罗的主街上与热门的 EI8HT 复合式商圈为邻，以更具设计感的手法让人们眼前一亮。
位于11楼的Som Tam & Chardonnay餐厅充分体现了酒店不同元素融合的美妙化学反应。正如餐厅名字所暗示青木瓜沙拉和霞多丽葡萄酒，这里的菜品将东西方融合，并且创意性的将泰式沙拉与葡萄酒结合，我们当日在主厨的推荐下品尝了多种口味的青木瓜沙拉，配合侍酒师选的红葡萄酒，酸甜辣在葡萄酒的香气中升华变幻，叫人食欲大开，海鲜泰式风格和牛排西式风格的两种主菜皆表现优秀。饱餐后，可以选择在泳池旁边的Otto Pool Bar喝一杯啤酒。如果是周末，一定要去酒店的Presidente Lounge享用下午茶，其细节精美的艺术装饰风会让人一品那十九世纪二十年代的风华。
A ”Cool” Home in the Tropical Metropolis
The huge pollution and heavy burden brought by the tourism industry have already triggered redalert in the whole world. With the strict control of smoking in Phuket and the comprehensive ban of plastic bags in Bali, more tourism resorts are trying to resist the pollution coming from the tourists, therefore, to be a true cool traveler in the moment, not only does one need to constantly explore during the trip, but also need to shoulder some responsibility. Thai hotel group AKARYN establish the frst hotel in Asia that does not use disposable plastics Akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok, providing a new accommodation choice for people who are concerned about sustainable development.
More than that, in order to create a cooler travel experience for the customers, the two Akyra
boutique hotels newly opened last year were located in the most fashionable areas of Bangkok
Sukhumvit and Thonglor, and equipped with outstanding design, unique bars and cuisine, where
travelers can explore the cosmopolitan of Bangkok and experience its lively fusion.
Environmental Protection and Uncompromised Enjoyment
Akyra Hotel Sukhumvit is next to Emporium and EmQuartier, two of Bangkok‘s hottest luxury shopping malls. Walking into it, the dark woodcoloured lobby not only hints at its environmentally friendly traits, but also brings a touch of elegance. The key wall with gold bells and green table lamp at the front desk highlight the retro charm, and the lobby coffee shop Siam Soul on the other side combines modern and classical with marble dining tables and metal chandeliers. Whether it is breakfast or brunch, Siam Soul‘s beautiful food always lures the guests to snap a picture. The brown uniforms of the staff echo with the atmosphere inside the hotel. When you check in, they will take you to the cafe and bring you fresh juice. If lucky enough, you will be kindly informed of the room upgrade.
There are a total of 46 rooms in the hotel, ranging from 26 to 55 square meters. Our room is one of the 9 onebedroom suites and of the largest room type. The complete bedroom, living room, bathroom, open kitchen and balcony equate to a sophisticated apartment. The interior design adds some hippie fun and taste to the fresh, woodtoned comfort, such as cement walls, Marshall speaker, vintage luggage as a coffee table. The champagnecolored leather seats and the zenlike flower arrangement add a gentle texture to the space. A panoramic floortoceiling window that opens to the openair balcony crossing from living room to bedroom is just a great touch, standing on the balcony, you can breath the feeling of living in the center of Bangkok. The busy city is within your reach, while a quiet peaceful space is easy to realize by closing the door.
The Rise Rooftop on the 9th floor is the most exciting part of the hotel, where a glass pool with city views is located.Almost everyone would want to have the experience of overlooking Bangkok in this huge ”fish tank”, let alone how instagramable it is After the nightfall, this rooftop open air restaurant really shows its charm. Top DJ is stationed here making really nice live music for people. Of course, the Thai barbecue is very delicious. Recommended by the hotel catering director, we tried the restaurant‘s special barbecue platter with a variety of tastes and classic green papaya salad, accompanied by the cool breeze of Bangkok, the whole night is just spicy and exciting
Infusion and Retro
If you like meet creators and designers while travelling and prefer places with forwardlooking and international perspectives, there is a good chance that you will be directed to Thonglor in Bangkok. In the area where many fashionable and highquality restaurants and shops gather, adjacent to the popular EI8HT shopping mall on the main street, Akyra Hotel Thonglor fully absorbs its nutrients and creativity with a more designoriented style.
The hotel is designed by BEGRAY, a design studio based in Bangkok known for integrating local culture into the design to create unique and beautiful works. In Akyra, they draw inspiration from the interiors of the 1920s, creating a gorgeous blend of vintage and modern style with rich colors, a variety of different materials and a large number of art deco elements. The beautiful velvet sofas, fur rugs, marble tabletops and metal frames in the lobby are the most attractive of them all. The staff‘s mint green uniforms have also become a clever decoration that is pleasant to the eye.
The 148 rooms include lovely studio rooms and huge suites with 13 bedrooms. Whether in the hotel corridor or in the interior of the room, it is filled with Thonglorrelated artworks and custom furniture. Floortoceiling windows face the hotel‘s infinity pool and the vibrant city scene. Living here brings forth the experience of living inside of Thonglor in many ways.
The Som Tam & Chardonnay restaurant on the 11th floor exemplifies the wonderful chemical reaction of the different elements of the hotel. As the name of the restaurant suggests–green papaya salad and Chardonnay wine, the dishes here blend the East and the West, and creatively combine Thai salad with wine. We tasted a variety of flavors of Som Tam as recommended by the chef, together with the red wine selected by the sommelier. Sour, sweet and spicy, the aroma of the wine has certainly increased our appetite. The Thai style seafood and the Western style steak of the two main dishes are both excellent. After that, you can choose to have a beer at the Otto Pool Bar next to the pool. And one more great treat for your journey, be sure to visit the hotel‘s Presidente Lounge for afternoon tea, where you will definitely be wowed by the fine art deco style of the 1920s.
