This minimalist and serene oasis – the COMO Metropolitan Bangkok – is a true getaway in the heart of the Thai capital . Forget clasp-handed bows and traditional uniforms here, instead, you’ll be greeted by an on-point team in designer gear, trained to blend into the background and leave you be. We recommend one of the suites, you’ll want to check in and never leave.
We have long adored this contemporary design hotel, that successfully fuses the chic aesthetic of a Bangkok loft apartment with unrivalled Thai hospitality. Designed by Singaporean interior designer Kathryn Kng, the COMO Metropolitan Bangkok is an urban escape that will have you breathing a sigh of relief when you walk through its doors, away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
We absolutely loved our duplex suite, that was a lovely home away from home – and we recommend to upgrade yourself from the hotel’s more standard accommodations if you’re staying here, it’s well worth it. The warm, Thai Makha wood and brass panelling throughout is lit up by the natural light that floods through the double-height, wall to wall windows. The sleek and minimalist vibe continues throughout the hotel, into its award-winning Thai restaurant, Nahm (we could eat here every day – it offers innovative takes on Thai delicacies) and of course the brand’s signature Shambhala spa. For non-indulgent healthy eaters, a Shambhala menu is on offer at Glow – Bangkok’s most renowned, health-conscious eatery.

|While you’re Out There|
|Anyone that knows Bangkok will tell you that traffic is awful. So while you’re tempted to limo around, we recommend making use of the city’s sophisticated public transport systems, the BTS and MRT. COMO Metropolitan Bangkok is conveniently situated between two stations. Top tip for OutThere travellers, the delights (and madness) of Silom by night is not too far away.|
