Officially opening late in 2018, Somerset Maison Asoke Bangkok adds a little more sophistication and stylish living to the Bangkok serviced-apartment hotel niche market.
Sitting in the heart of the central business district and yet tucked away from the traffic bustle of Sukhumvit, it is fringed by a cosy neighbourhood where it’s easy to mix pleasure with business if need be. You will have quick access to Terminal 21 shopping mall, as well as the cafes, bars, restaurants and shops in Sukhumvit and Petchaburi Roads. Both the Asok Skytrain (BTS) and the Sukhumvit subway stations are a mere 10-minutes away, making it easy to get around Bangkok.
Under the umbrella of one of the largest international serviced residence owner-operators in Thailand, Ascott, it promises to be another luxurious offering with a warm and relaxing vibe to ensure that you have a “home away from home” experience. Featuring 125 contemporary studio and one-bedroom apartments of sleek design with all of the necessary amenities including state-of-the-art technology to keep a smile plastered on your face, Somerset Maison Asoke gives that little bit extra such as washing and ironing facilities, fully-equipped kitchens for when you wish to play Gordon Ramsey, multi-split air-conditioning, a hair dryer to tame your hair in the mornings, plus linen and eco-friendly toiletries.
There is 24-hour security and key-card access to ensure that no bogeyman will appear on your doorstep. Extra comfort services include room service, a doctor on call, daily breakfast if you need more than a quick coffee in your room, an airport transfer service or if you wish to go upmarket, you can have a limousine. For those with their own vehicles there is car parking available and daily housekeeping will help you keep your clothes off the floor.
For the business soul there are courier and secretarial services, plus a business centre with broadband Internet access. Other services available include such things as a wake-up service if you have a habit of sleeping in, plus baby cribs are available upon request. There are numerous other offerings to ensure you are comfy, relaxed and love being a guest.
You won’t have to run out the door if you don’t feel like cooking for yourself, as there is the on-site Blend Bistro & Wine Bar where you can grab a classic French, Italian or Thai dish at any time throughout the day. The Sky Garden is where you can relish a tranquil space for some “me time” and the well-equipped fitness centre is where you can punish your muscles until you are pink in the face. On the 7th Floor you will find an infinity swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs if you wish to indulge in a bit of sun worshipping or a refreshing dip in the water.
