Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok awarded spot on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2016 Gold List of the world’s best hotels

January, 2016

COMO’s property in the Thai capital is one of only two hotels in Thailand to appear on the US magazine’s coveted list

COMO Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce that Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok — the stylish contemporary hotel located on South Sathorn Road — has been included in Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List, which is now in its 22nd year.

The judges considered 1,000 properties around the world to select the 142 hotels that the magazine’s editors would repeatedly recommend. Metropolitan Bangkok is highlighted under ‘Hotels We’d Travel to Just For These Dishes,’ citing the chicken coconut soup from the menu at nahm, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant presided over by David Thompson.

Condé Nast describes COMO’s property as Bangkok’s hottest hotel: “The 169 rooms, by Singapore interior designer Kathryn Kng, are breathtaking: makha-wood parquet floors, raw-silk bed covers, streamlined teak furniture, impeccable lighting, and a drop-dead gorgeous bathroom in Portuguese limestone. The most desirable rooms overlook a picture-perfect pool. The Shambhala spa provides top-drawer massages, a great workout room, and a lounge with a steam room and a whirlpool. Glow serves brilliant organic eats all day long, and the most coveted tables in town are at the more formal nahm, where chef David Thompson shows off features from many Thai regions, like jungle curry with pla chorn.”

Kevin Abramowicz, General Manager of Metropolitan Bangkok, said: “We are honoured to be the only city hotel in Thailand to be listed as one of Condé Nast Traveler’s favourite hotels in the world, in a list spanning six continents and 47 countries. This recognition rewards our team’s service, showing how we genuinely care for our guests. Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok is an urban resort to escape from the bustling city. Our hotel treats travellers to authentic culinary journeys and curated city experiences.”
