Thailand’s First INNSiDE Hotel Named Best Luxury Bleisure Hotel - TOP25HOTELS.comINNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit has been lauded as the leading luxury bleisure hotel in Bangkok in this year’s Luxury Lifestyle Awards.

Based in New York City, the global awards are in their 16th year and assess more than 5,000 goods and services in 400 categories from more than 100 countries. According to the awards’ organising committee: “The objective of these awards is to recognise excellence across the whole range of industry sectors and maintain the highest standards in the industry worldwide”.

After undergoing a selection process by the award’s organizing committee based on selection criteria including reputation, craftsmanship, credibility, uniqueness, brand awareness, sustainability, luxury experience, personalization, and excellence, INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit has been deemed the winner of the ‘Best Luxury Bleisure Hotel in Bangkok’ category. The organising committee applauded the hotel, that debuted in July 2023, for being “one of the best in its sector” and its “impeccable reputation and professional performance”.

INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit’s general manager Aarron Nelson said he and his team were thrilled the urban lifestyle hotel has been recognised on the world stage for its eclectic mix of remarkable business and leisure facilities and services so soon after its July 2023 debut.

“With integrated co-working spaces, playful meeting rooms and multifunctional areas designed to encourage creativity and productivity, a sky-high transparent infinity pool, incredible rooftop tapas bar LUZ and more, we’re not your typical bleisure hotel,” said Nelson. “Our hotel has a lot of storytelling behind it; each floor tells a story about a certain famous Bangkok landmark. Our compelling design, our vibrant team, and all the exciting possibilities we offer seamlessly combining business and leisure are connecting with a lot of people.”

Situated at 1472 Sukhumvit Road, the new On Nut hotel is a 30-minute ride from Suvarnabhumi Airport and close to an array of services and attractions suited to business and leisure travellers including the On Nut BTS Skytrain station and Bangkok’s largest convention centre, BITEC.

The hotel’s vast 32nd floor co-working space with soaring floor-to-ceiling windows offers a front seat to Bangkok’s sweeping skyline. Five meeting rooms and multifunctional areas, such as the Big Ideas Space, underpin the INNSiDE brand and lend themselves to being mixed and matched for all sorts of bespoke social and corporate events.

Together with the hotel’s jewel in the crown, an awe-inspiring infinity pool, The Giant Swing Pool Bar commands the 34th floor. Nestled between bar and pool, a compelling contemporary interpretation of Bangkok’s Brahman structure The Giant Swing is a dramatic photo backdrop. By night, the pool bar becomes an upper-floor extension of the hotel’s 33rd floor LUZ Bangkok Tapas Bar. Offering authentic Spanish tapas, wines, beer on tap, cocktails and signature sangrias, the tapas bar invites diners to embark on a culinary pilgrimage across Spain. A spectacle unlike any other in Bangkok, tapas bar guests peer into the bottom of the infinity pool.

INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit is part of a collection of unique urban and beach hotels in 14 different countries designed for those with curious minds who cultivate a fluid lifestyle when it comes to work and leisure.
