The Metropolitan Bangkok has launched nine new packages. Suitable for both the short break
market and international traveller, each package is focused on a unique experience that’s matched to a particular sensibility, from fashion to
health to getting under the skin of Thailand’s ancient capital. Value-for-money is built into each offer, and might include decadent gift items
or access to places which are otherwise generally off limits. Their launch follows the success of 10 similar packages inaugurated in 2007 by
the Metropolitan London, sister to the Metropolitan Bangkok.
The nine new packages for the Metropolitan Bangkok are based on two sharing (rates for single travellers are also available). Prices are
subject to tax and service charge. Unless specified, accommodation is in a Metropolitan Room.
Style. This package offers the best of Bangkok concentrated into a perfectly tuned three-night stay. The experience begins with
a private limousine at the airport, and in your room, a chilled bottle of Champagne.
During your stay, a one-day city tour will give you a heady fix of the main historical sites, including the Grand Palace and Siam Niramit Thai
Cultural Show (followed by dinner). Go deeper into the culture by seeing some
Muay Thai Boxing; alternatively, take part in a hands-on Thai
cookery class. And just to ensure you’re sartorially satisfied, the
hotel will arrange an appointment with one of the city’s best tailors. The package
also includes dinner for two at Cy’an, a COMO Shambhala massage for two and daily breakfast.
Available from US$1,350 per room for three nights.
Explorer. This package is the ideal stop-over for travellers on their way to explore Indochina’s gems, including Thailand’s beaches,
Cambodia and Vietnam. Not only does it provide respite from a long-haul flight; it also ensures you get a taste of the region and a hit of
Bangkok – a city not to be passed over. Based on a two-night stay, this value-for-money deal includes a one-day city tour, two
complimentary Martinis, tickets to Muay Thai Boxing or a hands-on Thai cookery class. To fend off any jet lag, choose from a Thai or COMO
Shambhala massage for two. The package also includes breakfast, which can be savoured at Cy’an or Glow.
Available from US$880 per room for two nights.
Reviver. This package is designed for couples or friends looking for wellbeing and respite from the urban hubbub. The
Metropolitan’s spa package repairs you from head to toe on a one-night stay that focuses on downtime at the hotel’s COMO Shambhala
Urban Escape (with mentors like Donna Karan and international Yoga teacher Rodney Yee, expect one of the world’s best city spas). The
package includes herbal tea and fresh fruit as well as a COMO Shambhala gift set in your room on arrival, a COMO Shambhala massage for
two and participation in the daily complimentary Yoga/stretch class. Enjoy a greater sense of wellness with breakfast for two at Glow where
superfoods fill the nutritionally rich menu. Available from US$530 per room for two nights.
Experience. With its prime location just minutes from the city’s main shopping areas, the Metropolitan Bangkok is
perfectly poised for a hit of retail therapy in one of Asia’s most dynamic capitals. This package includes the service of a personal driver for a
five-hour shopping tour. Just name your favourite stores and our luxury air-conditioned car will take you there, meaning there’s no need to
hunt for a taxi and carry your bags from shop to shop. Back at the hotel, revitalise those weary feet with a Reflexology treatment before
retreating to the Met Bar for a post-shopping Martini. Available from US$375 per room, per night.
‘Seduce me’ at the
Met. This is a modern interpretation of the classic romance package. Upon arrival, a box of chocolates and an indulgent
COMO Shambhala massage oil gift set are waiting in your room. Follow with some more serious pampering – specifically, a COMO
Shambhala massage for two at the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape in the privacy of our couple’s massage suite. Round off with a candlelit
dinner beside the pool at Cy’an, which is the hotel’s headline gourmet restaurant.
The hotel will include a bottle of wine, and in the morning, should
you be in the mood for more indulgence, enjoy a Champagne breakfast delivered to your room. A
fabulous gift to surprise him or her. Available from US$560 per room, per night.
Business. At the Metropolitan we believe in stress-free business travel. That’s why Condé Nast Traveller magazine named us
among the world’s top business hotels in 2007. Our two-night package offers the sleek and efficient tools this kind of traveller
requires: roundtrip limousine transfers from the airport, complimentary broadband internet in your room and a good location close to Bangkok’s
business district. And after a hard-day’s work, enjoy a relaxing Thai or COMO Shambhala massage for one hour, watch a complimentary
in-room movie and spend your US$30 credit voucher in the Met Bar, Cy’an or Glow restaurants.
Available from US$510 for two nights in a City Room, based on single occupancy.
Party Like a Rock Star – Sleep Like a
Kick-off the evening with a complimentary Martini in the exclusive members-only Met Bar.
The hotel's concierge will be happy to assist with
planning the rest of the night, whether you stay with the Met’s party crowd or go out downtown. Complimentary smoothies and coffee will
be delivered to your room in the morning, and you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast after an indulgent lie-in. Check-out is a late 2pm. To
remember the party, take home an exclusive Met Bar gift. Available from US$280 per room, per night.
Excess at the
Met. For the ultimate extravagance, this package loads on the
extras: chilled Champagne in your suite on arrival, a personal butler on call, roundtrip limousine transfers from the airport, an indulgent COMO Shambhala massage for two, a deluxe city tour of
Bangkok with a chauffeur driven limousine and professional guide, a seven-course dinner served in a private area of Cy’an and
a bottle of premium spirit for personal use in the Met Bar during your stay.
Available from US$1,360 for two nights in an Executive Suite.
Bangkok. This package – a simple, well-priced overnight stay inclusive of breakfast – is aimed at individuals who want
complete flexibility during their visit. Available at US$185 per room, per night.
