Marked by a seemingly desolate building site at its top, Sukhumvit Soi 27 is a short soi between the neighbourhoods of Asok and Phrom Phong.

Aside from the abandoned construction site, the major draw of Soi 27 is undoubtedly the Radisson Blu hotel at the corner with Sukhumvit. There are a few apartment blocks dotted down here as well.

Here are the highlights of Soi 27…

Radisson Blu Plaza

Hotel

The Radisson Blu is a 5* hotel at the top of Sukhumvit Soi 27, which sees rates start from the comparatively low price of 3,040 baht per night. There are 290 rooms and suites in the hotel, with the Royal Deluxe suite the most luxurious.

As well as a spa, gym and swimming pool, the hotel also has a 28th-floor restaurant and a poolside bar.

Enoteca

Restaurant

Enoteca is one of Bangkok’s best Italian restaurants that’s tucked away down the end of Soi 27 as it curls around to meet Soi 29.

This isn’t just your standard pizzeria with added pasta — rather, it’s Italian fine dining with the best of fresh ingredients and innovative culinary expression.

They have a variety of menus available — including the degustation and surprising menus — with certain highlights including truffle pigeon liver, smoked sea scallop, veal cheek braised in red wine and slow cooked Italian suckling pig.
