Highs & Lows

  • A bastion of peace and tranquility amongst the madness of Bangkok.

  • The design is incredible. Immaculate detail, from the car in the driveway to the tea service.

  • Friendly and attentive staff who treat you as if you’re home.

  • Your fellow guests are likely to be exactly the kind of people you want to be rubbing shoulders with. It takes an adventurous spirit to seek out Cabochon.

  • If you want a hotel with a busy, crazy scene, this is not it...go stay at the W!
