Volve Hotel Bangkok, Sukhumvit Thonglor Design Hotel
With 28 rooms in the Sukhumvit Thonglor district of Bangkok, Hotel Volve is accommodation for travelers who wish to immerse themselves in the local culture; food; art; and authentic lifestyle.
Standing proud among some of the city’s most esteemed homes, the hotel is surrounded by authentic Thai street food stalls, cafes and restaurants. Understanding that travelers are stepping away from the ‘cookie cutter, hotel chain stay’ and opting for the experience rather than the guidebook checkbox, Volve (named with this development in mind for modern travelers ) is a refutation of the hotel to the Airbnb wave. Drawing its quintessence from the heritage homes of the surrounding area – which were once home to Bangkok’s aristocratic families – the hotel is a gathering place for like-minded explorers, its lobby doubles as a cafe; a trendy place for guests and locals to gather.
Private Scale designed the interiors, chief designer Pitiphat Chongsomchit introduced details that pay homage to retro and contemporary 50s fashion. Each bedroom has crisp white linens; Malin + Goetz amenities; local Thai craft beers; and ample space. Individually designed, each of the 28 rooms is different from each other – unique design curiosities and quirks, and works of emerging local artists alongside digital collages, expressing a sense of humor and playfulness that embodies the Volve state of mind.
