Delicious Mice deal in Bangkok

Thai coffee break … Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit serves up a nice Mice deal for small groups

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit has launched a mouth-watering, new Mice package called ‘Gourmet Small-Business Getaway’, aimed at groups of 15 to 50 people looking for the ideal mix of business and pleasure.

The new promotion includes three nights in a Luxury Club Millésime Room, Thai- or French-themed coffee breaks and preferred pricing on spa treatments, food and beverage.

On arrival day, guests are treated to an exclusive art appreciation cocktail hour with Martin Gerlier, curator of Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit’s new art gallery, S Gallery.

On day two, the spotlight shifts to chef Jerome Deconinck, who helms the kitchen for L’Appart, Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit’s stylish rooftop bar, restaurant and lounge. Over the course of 90 minutes, and through numerous taste tests, the seasoned chef will teach everyone how to pair wine and cheese perfectly.

The educational experience starts at 4:30 pm and takes place at La Fromagerie, the capacious cheese room that adorns a corner of the hotel’s all-day dining venue, Voilà!

The heart of the escape comes next, on day three, when the group is taken off-site to explore some of Bangkok’s most compelling cultural attractions. The day-long excursion begins with a trip to Wat Pho, the city’s largest temple. Then it’s on to the famed Grand Palace, a dazzling collection of centuries-old buildings.

From there, a long-tail boat awaits, ready to take passengers on an exhilarating canals tour that ends at Wat Arun, an iconic, 80-metre tower on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. The day concludes with dinner at Asiatique Riverfront Night Market, home to a smorgasbord of local food vendors serving up culinary favourites from all over Thailand.

The ‘Gourmet Small-Business Getaway’ is priced at $1,635 net per person and is valid until March 2016.
