IN a hospitality world obsessed with modern, contemporary cool, it’s always a pleasure when you come across a hotel brand that’s unafraid of also embracing the past in its design and core concepts ‒ especially when these revolve around family.
Take the DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok, for instance. Designed to reflect the art-deco-style of the early twentieth century, complete with rotary dial telephones, record players and old-fashioned candy dispensers as ornaments, the hotel also harkens back
The same can also be said about the hotel’s dining options, particularly the all-day-dining restaurant Dee Lite, whose weekly Sunday brunch boasts one of the best family-friendly set ups in town.
What makes it so special? Well, while mum and dad tuck into a hearty selection of international and local cuisines, the kids can burn off steam jumping on a bouncy castle, get to grips with face painting, cookie baking, and T-shirt making, and even lounge around on beanbags in their own cinema room. Knee-high tables present a wide range of foods created specially just for them, and they even get their own live entertainment in the form of The Cookie Clown.
All activities are supervised by trained nannies leaving parents free to catch up on some well-deserved R&R, which is best started here with a glass or two of the hotel’s signature Chocolate Cookie Martini, followed by several plates of Dee Lite’s delicious offerings (don’t miss the roasted carved meats ‒ succulent and packed with flavour).
As you would expect from a hotel under the Hilton Worldwide umbrella, all food at Dee Lite is made using the finest ingredients available and cooked with care by the talented culinary team. Service is swift and efficient and, true to the spirit of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, genuinely friendly too.
Sunday Brunch is B1,500 for adults (includes welcome drink) and B750 for kids aged 5-12 (includes all activities and free-flow of juices, soft drinks, and milkshakes). Kids under five eat for free. Diners can enjoy their meal out on the terrace or in the air conditioned dining room, which features diner-style seating and comfortable private booths. Ample parking is available.
