Plush, soothing properties dispensing and encyclopedia of wellness therapies are the hallmark of the intimate COMO Hotels and Resorts portfolio. Singaporean designer Kathryn Kng summoned that same alluring vibe for Bangkok’s Metropolitan by COMO, situated in Thung Maha Mek. The 169 guestrooms, suffused with natural light, are defined by sumptuous details like Thai makha wood and oxidized-brass paneling. Limestone bathrooms are trimmed in mosaic tiles and works by Thai artist Natee Utarit add pops of contemporary local color. There are City rooms that remind guests they are residing in a thriving urban landscape, but far more transporting are the Terrace rooms, with private patios and double-height Penthouse suites stocked with Patricia Urquiola sofas and Helen Yardley rugs. The COMO suite, essentially a spacious two-bedroom apartment, contains a hand-blown light fixture and a shimmering red lacquer cabinet. Even with private dining an option, it would behoove guests to hightail it to Nahm. The hotel’s restaurant serves acclaimed Thai food amid candlelight on a dreamy terrace by the pool.
