Chilling out at the Metropolitan Bangkok

Chilling out at the Metropolitan Bangkok

On my recent travels I stayed at the gorgeous Metropolitan Hotel in Bangkok. Offering an oasis of calm and cool (both in terms of temperature and hip factor), from the hot hustle and bustle of Bangkok, the Metropolitan is located near the CBD and embassy district and is close to the city’s major attractions including the labyrinth of tea houses and dim-sum restaurants in Chinatown, the Old City, Siam Square and the nightlife of Silom-Sathorn and Patpong.  In some ways it feels more like being a guest in an elegant home than a hotel. The owner is someone like me – who loves yoga, healthy food and beautiful things with a Zen simplicity. In my room, there’s a yoga mat in my closet and a ‘meditation chair’ in the living room.  The whole second floor is dedicated to health and well-being with GLOW restaurant dishing up healthy organic meals and COMO Shambhala Spa with treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pools and a studio offering a timetable of complimentary yoga, Pilates, fitball, core conditioning and private fitness training. Downstairs, acclaimed Australian chef, David Thompson, of Sydney Sailor’s Thai and London’s Nahm restaurants has established Nahm Bangkok, offering an exquisite authentic Thai menu with his signature flair and finesse.
