Ariyasomvilla came to my attention through their restaurant, Na Aroon, which specializes in vegetarian, organic foods. That alone sets the small hotel apart. So, even though it’s not a five-star establishment I thought it was worth a mention here.


The airy dining room of the hotel’s restaurant.

The hotel is built around a 1940s house on Sukhumvit Soi 1. It’s at the very end of the alley, well past the entrance to Bumrungrad Hospital and all the other hotels on the lane. There are just 25 rooms and suites. Rooms are richly decorated with traditional Thai textiles. All bathrooms have tubs and there is complementary wi-fi avaialable throughout the hotel. Some rooms have balconies.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool area at Ariyasomvilla.

The swimming pool looks like a nice area to relax, with lots of shady spots if you want to stay out of the sun. The arrangement of buildings and pool means the pool area will be in the shade in the afternoon, which is when many travelers feel the need for a refreshing dip. In addition to the pool there’s a full service spa.

As I mentioned at the beginning, the hotel’s restaurant features a mostly vegetarian menu. They do have some seafood dishes, but no meat, and they try to use as many organic ingredients as possible.

You can find more information and book directly with the hotel at the AriyasomVilla web site, or you find links to discount booking sites on the detail page for this hotel.
