Eat your heart out London there is a lot of
hotel happenings in Bangkok in 2012 too. A new Sofitel and the Oriental
Residence are both scheduled for opening during the next 12 months. However
we've been chatting to our friends at Small Luxury Hotels about the new 39-room
Siam for a while now and we think it is the most exciting new hotel in Bangkok
for 2012. This is design collaboration
between Krissada Sukosol Clapp and Bill Bensley, which bodes well. Think
colonial chic, spinning ceiling fans, dark wood floors and walls. Now you've
got the picture. A white linen suit would look just fine here. Best of all are those Bensley gardens, the
riverside location by Krung Thon Bridge in the historic Dusit area of Bangkok.
Resort calm n the heart of bustling Bangkok -we like. TLTB chooses to stay in Connie's Cottage, a
teak house originally brought to Bangkok by Jim Thompson.
