Rather than dining indoors while gazing longingly at the summery outdoors, the Sofitel So invites you to enjoy a gourmet al fresco meal with their three exciting new picnic options. This is an opportunity to take advantage of “Picnics at the Solarium Oasis Lawn”, situated on the hotel’s 10th floor adjacent to the swimming pool which can be arranged for you any time of the day. You can additionally opt for a sun-kissed picnic in the late afternoon with occasional dips in their 33 meter infinity pool, or have a romantic nibble beneath the stars with the backdrop of the sparkling city nightscape. Perhaps you would prefer to order a “basket-to-go” and borrow a bicycle from the hotel, and enjoy the picnic spread under the shade of lush mature trees at the 142-acre Lumphini Park next to Sofitel So Bangkok.
The stunning views of Lumphini Park and the Bangkok city skyline are the inspiration for the picnic baskets, allowing you to make the most of the hotel’s park-side location. To complement the setting, they have carefully curated three ‘best-of’ picnic baskets featuring the most exquisite treats from Asia, Italy, and France.
The Picnic Baskets
The delectable Asian Picnic set is comprised of items handpicked from the region’s most iconic cuisines, such as Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese. The basket of munchies includes such treats as Maki and Nigiri Sushi, fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Chicken & Beef Satay w/Peanut Sauce, a selection of Thai Sweets, Seasonal Fruit Skewers, and Iced Bale Fruit or Lemongrass Tea.
For those with a more Western palate, try the Italian Picnic which offers an authentic taste of the Mediterranean.

You can also enjoy a bottle of wine with the picnic; the recommended beverage is Prosecco Jeio Extra Dry, Pinot Grigio Santa Margherita or Peppoli Chianti Classico.

This assortment includes Cold Cuts & Cheese, Niçoise Salad, freshly baked Baguette w/ French Butter, Honey & Jam, Quiche Lorraine, Opera Cake, Berry Mille-Feuille, Fresh Strawberries, a box of Chocolate, and Orange Juice.
