If you’re looking for the ultimate in exclusivity, try Thailand’s new Hotel Bocage with six rooms. Slated for a soft-opening in the first quarter of 2017, the property offers just six accommodations ranging in size from 452 to 807 square feet, well-suited for those really looking to get off the grid.
Though the hotel has opted for a small scale approach when it came to the number of rooms, it maxed out on room area, privacy, views and ambiance. Located about two and a half hours from Bangkok in the beach town of Hua Hin, floor to ceiling sliding doors lead to private balconies offering views of the Gulf of Thailand.
The hotel chose to refrain from developing an in-house restaurant on the grounds of encouraging guests to explore the variety of restaurants and cafés available to them nearby. For guests who wish to dine on-site, in-room dining is available prepared by one of the nearby restaurants.
When exploring, we recommend opting for the hotel’s transfers and tours partner Star Flag. Hotel Bocage has partnered with the Merceds Benz limo service to offer guests myriad options for exploring their new surroundings.
Amenities of the property include luxury Italian décor, Porro plush beds, Living Divani contemporary sofas and freestanding tubs and sanitary ware by Antonio Lupi. To further guest accommodation, Hotel Bocage has enlisted in a number of technology objectives to provide guests with the most up to date connectivity as possible, including the option of accessing your guest room from your smart phone.
Acclaimed Thai architect Duangrit Bunnag is the brainchild behind the new property. Bunnag and his design services company, Brisk, have worked closely with the Louis T Collection after the forming of a partnership in June of 2016. Hotel Bocage now marks the second property in Thailand to enter the Louis T Collection.
“In an area saturated with big resort-style properties, Hotel Bocage is forging a new path when it comes to intimate, uncomplicated stays,” said Grant Healy, CEO of Louis T Collection, the hotel’s management company. "Louis T Collection’s journey started by seeking out unique properties and opportunities for authentic experiences that travelers of today are looking for. This is exactly what Duangrit Bunnag is trying to achieve through the creation of Hotel Bocage.”
