Travel :: Cabochon Hotel & Residence, Bangkok


Yesterday while surfing on Mr. and Mrs. Smith, a site specializing in hand-picked luxury & boutique hotels, I noticed that the hotel we were dying to stay at in Bangkok {but had been sold out for months} showed availability!  I quickly called Ryan, cancelled our existing reservation, and booked four nights at the beautiful Cabochon Hotel.

This eight-room boutique hotel, housed in a French Colonial building, was designed to "recreate the Shanghai chic of the 1920s for which that city reigned supreme in the Orient and was also famous for its modernity and aesthetics after the Parisian and Viennese styles."  The hotel {which looks like it could have come out of a Restoration Hardware catalog} is decorated with antique typewriters, prints, telephones, and model planes, and houses a highly-rated Thai-Laos fusion restaurant.  Rooms feature simple white Belgian linens, elegant four-poster beds, and balconies overlooking the tropical courtyard.  Plus, a rooftop pool offers the perfect place for an evening swim.  I can't wait!

    Wow- enjoy your stay! This place looks amazing and the pool is to die for. I think even Restoration would be a little jealous!
