Infused with the DNA of W Hotels, the 296-room Aloft Bangkok-Sukhumvit 11 caters to the modern traveller seeking an eclectic, unique experience. With urban-inspired design, Aloft guestrooms feature loft-like decor with soaring nine-foot ceilings, Aloft’s signature platform beds, oversized showerheads and BlissÓ Spa products. To maximise both work and play, each room offers free Wi-Fi and a plug n’ play connectivity station for charging all electronics and syncing with the 42″ LCD HDTV. Incorporating industrial design elements throughout the hotel, Aloft features a buzzing bar scene in the open lounge, a grab-and-go café, a full-service fitness center, and an outdoor swimming pool.

For Aloft, the goal is to re-imagine the hotel model by creating a concept that encourages guests to spend more time in public areas, using innovative and surprising materials to focus on smart design solutions. The free flowing energy throughout the hotel, modern design and mood lighting set the tone for a diverse and stylish destination, day and night. This being the first Aloft opened in Thailand, local architecture firm Hassell added customised touches to the space so it would blend with the local culture and market.

Hassell adapted the standard design template from the US to cater to the local market, redesigning furniture and upgrading finishes, fabrics and fittings to develop an Aloft standard for the region.

As the hotel accommodates a plethora of business travellers, the hotel’s meeting space is a welcome feature. An additional exclusive amenity to this Aloft location is access to an all-day, full-service dining restaurant on site featuring fresh local seafood. Aloft Bangkok-Sukhumvit 11 will bring a refreshing change to the hotel scene in Bangkok.
