In the pulsating heart of Bangkok, a unique new face in hospitality has taken centre stage. Located in the vibrant On Nut district, the INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit has thrown open its doors, boasting a constellation of outstanding facilities. This is Thailand’s inaugural introduction to the globally acclaimed ‘INNSiDE by Meliá brand, an avant-garde concept reshaping the traditional hotel experience.
Housed within a 34-story tower, the freshly minted 208-room property takes hospitality to new heights. It follows the successful debuts of Meliá Koh Samui, Meliá Phuket Mai Khao, and Meliá Chiang Mai, consolidating the Spanish hotel giant Meliá Hotels International’s presence in Thailand. INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit, the latest addition to a distinctive portfolio of urban and beach INNSiDE hotels across Asia, Europe, and the Americas, promises an immersive hospitality experience for dynamic globetrotters with flexible lifestyle needs.
Situated at the prime location of 1472 Sukhumvit Road, the hotel ensures swift connectivity to Suvarnabhumi Airport, On Nut BTS Skytrain station, and Bangkok’s premier convention centre, BITEC. This strategic position makes it an ideal base for business and leisure travellers, granting easy access to various services and popular attractions.
The property’s 32nd-floor co-working space redefines productivity, offering a panoramic view of Bangkok’s skyline through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. A suite of five creatively-themed meeting rooms and multifunctional spaces like the Big Ideas Space underpin the hotel’s ethos of fostering innovation and productivity. Whether corporate conferences or bespoke social events, INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit’s flexible spaces cover all bases.
Food connoisseurs can explore a gastronomic journey through the hotel’s three distinctive eateries. The 34th floor is home to an awe-inspiring infinity pool and The Giant Swing Pool Bar, with its contemporary interpretation of Bangkok’s iconic Brahman structure offering an exceptional photographic backdrop. By night, the bar metamorphoses into an upper-floor extension of the hotel’s 33rd-floor LUZ Bangkok Tapas Bar, serving an array of Spanish wines, beers, cocktails, and authentic tapas dishes, all under the watchful eyes of Chef de Cuisine Laia Ferrer.
Complementing the property’s exotic dining landscape is The Kites Eatery, an all-day dining venue showcasing an assortment of Thai cuisine using locally sourced ingredients. The eatery’s chic ambience, encapsulated within glass walls featuring Sanam Luang’s illustrations, offers a visual feast alongside the culinary journey.
The Open Living Lounge, an inviting café and lobby bar seamlessly blended into the 32nd floor’s coworking space, offers a more relaxed atmosphere with Thai and Western comfort food on its menu. Keeping the cultural references intact, the lounge’s design pays homage to another Bangkok landmark, Wat Phra Kaew, with a golden counter inspired by traditional Thai decorations.
The accommodations at INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit perfectly balance function and aesthetics. Predominantly white interiors with subtle rose gold accents bring a refreshing ambience. At the same time, in-room amenities, including complimentary minibar items, organic bathroom amenities, and natural cork yoga mats, offer guests a comfortable, immersive stay.
The hotel’s eight accommodation categories, encapsulated under ‘INNSiDE Room’ and ‘The Townhouse,’ cater to a range of guest needs, from a convenient 20 sqm to a generous 64 sqm. 24/7 room service, a 24-hour Infit Gym, and a concierge service ensure that all guest needs are met promptly. The hotel also embraces sustainable practices, including banning single-use plastic, biodegradable takeaway boxes, and recycled glass bottles for drinking water.
Regarding the hotel’s grand opening, Ignacio Martin, Meliá Hotels International Managing Director for Asia Pacific, said, “True to its destination, this sensational hotel gives guests the freedom to connect or disconnect among an independent community.” The hotel’s general manager, Aarron Nelson, added they’re “ready to welcome curious and adventurous travellers who seek something different and dynamic; the opportunity to explore and share experiences.”
