SALT SES­SIONS: JA­PANESE CAVIAR

SALT Magazine - - Contents - TEXT LEE HUNG PING PHOTOS VIE HO­TEL BANGKOK

A pala­tial din­ner with Ja­panese caviar pro­ducer CAVIC.

Af­ter be­ing bom­barded by the sights and sounds of Bangkok’s city life, some­times we just crave

a pit stop. Some­where to take a breather, es­cape the hus­tling and the bustling, and get back on our feet again. Ho­tel VIE Bangkok is

just that stop. Stand­ing tall with edgy, modern ar­chi­tec­ture smack bang in the mid­dle of the city, this ho­tel com­bines con­tem­po­rary chic and lux­ury in one taste­ful pack­age. Guest rooms also im­press with their use of Jim Thomp­son Thai Silk—let­ting your­self sink into their won­der­ous folds is just

the way to round off a stress­ful week of work. You’ll al­most for­get that the room comes with a grand bath­tub, an ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of pil­lows, and Eti­enne Aigner prod­ucts. Rest­ful re­ju­ve­na­tion com­plete, sus­te­nance is next. I start off with some qual­ity tapas at the award-win­ning VIE Wine and Grill, be­fore grab­bing a tip­ple at their VIE bar. The big­gest dilemma in re­cent mem­ory con­fronts me next: to stay, and soak in the de­light­ful live jazz mu­sic with an­other one of the bar’s taste­ful drinks, or head to the

VIE SPA for a lit­tle pam­per­ing in­stead. What­ever your de­ci­sion, you’ll find that you’re rarely out of op­tions for some qual­ity time at

Ho­tel VIE Bangkok.
