This is what I kept envisioning when I found out I had won 2 nights at the 5-star Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit: my butt in that lotus shaped pool chair. And yes, it was as decadent and divine as I imagined (my butt can confirm this).
As was my luxurious room with a grand view of Bangkok‘s skyline, the intoxicating L’Occitane spa treatment, the blueberry macaron I had with my afternoon tea and ……. I could go on forever, but instead I’ll show you my visual diary of a fabulously French weekend in Bangkok.
And of course a big merci to the Friends of the Brands! You ROCK, girls!
French elegance meets Thai glamour in Bangkok’s business and entertainment district.

Daughter Tigerlily (almost 7) enjoying serious pool time on the 9th floor….
…..while mama does some serious lounging by the pool side.
No French hotel without the perfect French toast, non?
Or the perfect croissant, for that matter..
Le Spa: divine massages -duh, we’re in Thailand-, yummie products from L’Occitane and a golden cage to relax in afterwards while doing a Vanessa Paradis-impression.
Afternoon delight with a French twist and a Thai flower arrangement at the Club Millesime lounge.
At Club Millesime on the 31st floor you can have breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails in a lovely book-themed lounge.
For those brave -or foolish- enough: rental bikes on Sukhumvit Road.
Crèpes galore right next door at the food court of airport-themed mall Terminal 21.
Each floor of the Terminal 21 mall represents a capital, so I can say I bought this little blue dress (400 Baht = not even 10 Euro) in Tokyo! At only a 3 minute walk from the hotel…
It’s all about the view, eh?
