Towering over Bangkok’s trendy On Nut neighbourhood, INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit has cut the ribbon on a host of facilities ranging from integrated co-working spaces to a sky-high transparent infinity pool and rooftop tapas bar.
Reaching 34 floors, the 208-room hotel celebrated its grand opening on 7 July. It is Thailand’s first ‘INNSiDE by Meliá’ hotel and the fourth Meliá Hotels International property to debut in the kingdom after nautical-themed Meliá Koh Samui, wellness-inspired Meliá Phuket Mai Khao and urban hotel Meliá Chiang Mai opened in 2020, 2021 and 2022 respectively.
INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit is the newest member in the group’s collection of urban and beach INNSiDE hotels — in 14 different countries across Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
Situated at 1472 Sukhumvit Road, the new On Nut hotel is a 30-minute ride from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport and close to an array of services and attractions suited to business and leisure travelers including the On Nut BTS Skytrain station and Bangkok’s largest convention centre, BITEC.
The lifestyle hotel’s 32nd floor co-working space with floor-to-ceiling windows offers a front seat to Bangkok’s sweeping skyline. Five meeting rooms and multifunctional areas designed to encourage creativity and productivity.
Three food and beverage outlets make for the hotel’s dynamic dining landscape. Together with the hotel’s jewel in the crown, its top-floor infinity pool, The Giant Swing Pool Bar commands the 34th floor.
Adjacent to the infinity pool is an expansive rooftop terrace, dotted with outdoor lounges and sunbeds. Open from 1000 until midnight, the open-air pool bar serves Mediterranean, Thai and international snacks and dishes such as INNSiDE’s Burger and imaginative cocktails. By night, the pool bar becomes an upper-floor extension of the hotel’s 33rd floor LUZ Bangkok Tapas Bar.
Ranging from 20 sqm to 64 sqm, the hotel’s eight accommodation categories fall under two umbrellas – ‘INNSiDE Room’ and ‘The Townhouse’. The ‘INNSiDE Room King’ and ‘INNSiDE Room Twin’ are each 20 sqm and feature a king-size bed and twin beds respectively, with the ‘INNSiDE Connecting Room’ at 40 sqm when one room with a king bed connects to another with two single beds. As their names suggest, the ‘INNSiDE Room King City View’ and ‘INNSiDE Room Twin City View’, each at 20 sqm, located on the hotel’s upper floors, offer full length windows on the capital city’s constant movement.
Boasting city views, a separate living area, bathtubs and showers, Chromecast, coffee maker and free premium minibar with local beer, ‘The Townhouse’ and ‘The Townhouse City View’ are each 40 sqm. ‘The Townhouse Two-Bedroom’ is 64 sqm.
“Our hotel may well be the new kid on the block in Bangkok yet we offer a completely new hotel experience in one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities,” said Ignacio Martin, Meliá Hotels International managing director for Asia Pacific. “True to its destination, this sensational hotel gives guests the freedom to connect or disconnect among an independent community.”
“With our cool coworking spaces, creative meeting rooms, amazing infinity swimming pool and rooftop bar, authentic Spanish tapas bar and then some, all in the heart of On Nut, our hotel offers far more than just a trip,” said the hotel’s general manager Aarron Nelson.
“We’re ready to welcome curious and adventurous travellers who seek something different and dynamic; the opportunity to explore and share experiences, the flexibility to seamlessly move between work, leisure and wellbeing, and time to relax too.”
A 15 per cent off introductory offer on room rates applies from July to October 2023.
