SWEET FIFTEEN. Upscale Swiss hospitality chain Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has finally claimed its stake in Bangkok with the opening of Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 (47 Sukhumvit 15, Sukhumvit Road, Klong Toei Nuae, Wattana, Bangkok; moevenpick-hotels.com).
Located right in the heart of the city, this 297-guestroom five-star simply has it all: a 20m rooftop pool and bar, 330sqm of meeting space and a courtyard with a two-storied waterfall. If you’re looking to recreate your favorite scene from “The Hangover,” this Mövenpick goes all Thai with its 24-hour tuk-tuk shuttle service that will take you around town. The less adventurous traveller, meanwhile, will be happy to note that this new accommodation sits near a BTS Skytrain and an MRT, making a city tour easy and effortless.
