BANGKOK is waiting; you just haven’t met yet. At the very least, you haven’t gotten up close and personal with the capital. This is the idea behind Haven’t Met Hotel, a new accommodation option in Silom.
Haven’t Met Silom Bangkok officially welcomed guests on September 16, 2017, and it will have its opening party at the end of this month. The atmosphere at Haven’t Met Silom Bangkok buzzes with anticipation as the finishing touches are added to perfect every aspect of the new hotel.
The hotel has luxury-looking decor, all of which sticks to a monochromatic theme that is visually cohesive and looks both polished and chic. The rooms encompass a minimalistic vibe, with accents of blue highlighting the clean-cut interior.
The capital’s fine dining scene is both massive and mixt, making it hard for visitors to Bangkok to figure out where to go for a meal. Every guest at Haven’t Met, however, has the hotel by their side to guide their palates to the best eats in town. Here’s how it works.
In addition to restaurants, the team at Haven’t Met has rounded up upwards of 100 different culinary and cultural experiences, all found on the app. Guests can stay one
week and have an onslaught of new activities to choose from the next as they are rotated regularly. Each tablet is also equipped with a 4G SIM card that works no matter where guests venture to, making travel less daunting and more convenient.
Getting to know a city is a difficult endeavour, but Haven’t Met Silom Bangkok can help bridge the gap between the taunting Big Mango and tourists. Whether guests are looking for a luxurious stay in the heart of the city or need a helping hand while exploring it, this new hotel has visitors covered.

Bangkok is one of the best cities in the world in my opinion. Everything you need is here, which is why more and more people from around the world visit every year.
Where do you prefer more and why:
Silom or Sukhumvit? Silom, of course, because Haven’t Met Silom is located there. The area is also home to a vast range of sights and attractions. It is where all the city’s tallest buildings are located and many of the best hotels, including global brands like W Hotel, Banyan Tree and more.

We offer a range of unique lifestyle options in the heart of the world’s most visited city.

We also offer a choice of insider experiences and have a 24-hour lounge where we provide snacks and soft drinks, juice, coffee and tea.
Why should guests stay at Haven’t Met Hotel Silom and not any other hotels in the city?
In addition to technology and guided experiences we offer, Haven’t Met Silom provides stylish, comfortable and affordable accommodation. We are located right beside the BTS Skytrain station on one of the city’s major access roads.

What is the best advice you have ever received about the hospitality business?
The group director of a major hospitality company I worked with once said: “If you give everything you’ve got then everything will fi t into place.” I still follow his advice in my work every day.
