Metropolitan by Como, Bangkok

Metropolitan by Como, Bangkok

****

Exclusive retreat the Metropolitan by Como, Bangkok hotel attracts a very discerning brand of guest – fashionistas, film stars, designers and well-heeled, sharp-dressed urbanites ornament the bright, makha-wooded lobby. It’s clear: from the sleekly sophisticated healthy all-day diner Glow to respected Thai restaurant Nahm and the wine-dark depths of the Met bar, this is where you go to get noticed.

Highlights:

  • Star-studded city-centre design-shrine

  • Delicious healthy dining at all-day eatery Glow and star Thai restaurant Nahm

  • Masterpiece cocktails in exclusive club-lounge Met Bar

Smith extra

Daily Metropolitan breakfast and a martini each in the Met bar; members booking a Suite or staying three nights or more also get lunch for two at Glow restaurant (book on arrival) and free upgrades from Como Shambhala 60-minute massages to 90 minutes

In the know

Also need to know:

Get the Met staff to put together a personalised boutique shopping itinerary for you, taking the stress out of street-schlepping.On the first floor, the Como Shambhala spa – source of the bathroom goodies in your room – offers a variety of spirit-soothing, body-buffing holistic treatments, including reflexology and yoga-inspired Thai massage. Free yoga is available should you need a morning stretch (pick up stylish yoga wear in the spa boutique if you've forgotten to bring your own).

Packing tips:

Your most flattering designer swimwear – if Kylie or Colin Farrell are dining in the restaurant, you’ll want to give them a worthwhile eyeful as you sashay to the pool.

Dress code:

Off-duty diva.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Everyone speaks fondly of Thai hospitality. And, to be honest, it’s true. We’ve stayed in some of the country’s best hotels and have been ‘sawàt dii khaa-ed’ ad nauseum, and been handed so many lemongrass-scented cold towels that Mrs Smith has started worrying about her personal hygiene. But, on our way to the new Metropolitan by Como, Bangkok, we couldn’t help but wonder how the relentlessly warm and friendly Thais would deal with the Met group’s famously aloof, urbane cool.

At the moment, if our taxi driver’s reticence is anything to go by, no one seems to know where the hotel actually is.

Crisp, white eatery, Glow, beside the spa, presents a lighter selection of healthy organic snacks and smoothies for breakfast and all-day dining.
