The traffic, the noise, the heat,... Bangkok has them all. But some don't know one element owned by this city in the most unexpected way, which is Romance. To me, romance comes in the most unexpected way anyhow. And it did, with COMO Metropolitan, a sweet romantic treasure that I am happy to get to know. Located in the district of Sathorn, one of the upscale neighbourhoods in Bangkok, COMO Metropolitan has won me over with its divine simplicity but the on-point touch of luxury.

Centralised in the city but isolated in an alley on the main street Sathorn, COMO has the elegance and romance that I wanted to have for my romantic date. The vibrant vibe was welcoming and all the hassle of the city just got rid off. The smell of lemongrass fragrantly spread around the lobby which was calming. It got me to think: it is not necessary if you come to Bangkok for a visit or you live here, every now and then, we do need one of those days which we fancy a bit of luxury and pleasure. With COMO, I also experienced romance which emerged a great memory.
A romantic date
Bangkok might not be a destination for romance but you might have not known that romance comes from you. Allow me and COMO bring the best of romance in this city to you and your other half. Checking in to the MET King room, you tuck yourself in the cosy bed which it will be hard to get out. The day light shines into the room but you won't manage to feel sleepy in the snuggly bed. However, you have a date to go to.
Sathorn is a great district which it is centralised but not over crowded. You are still able to feel the glamour of the city while enjoying the scenic street life. The sun is about to go down and it is no better way than to enjoy a couple of drinks at a sky bar and watch the sun setting. You don't have to go far, simply walk to your neighbour Moon Bar or just a few minutes walk away to CHAR. Or no need alcohol involved. Lumphini Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the city and you are just 5 minutes walk away. Stroll around hand-in-hand with your loved one... Sunset is always a romantic element which you should always keep in mind.
Treat yourself and your loved one some delicacies that Bangkok could offer. If you don't feel like going anywhere far, COMO has you covered. Nahm is one of Michelin's restaurants in Bangkok which offers fresh flavours of traditional Thai cuisine with many surprises. The best seatings are at the terrace facing the pool. It is not so difficult to make a reservation at Nahm but you should check it at least 2 weeks in advance to secure the spot. Comparatively, as a award wining restaurant, Nahm is not too over-priced and offers enough luxury for your romantic date. Another restaurant which you are guaranteed to be in love with is Baan - divine Thai cuisine with a great range of craft beer and cocktails.
Simply idealistically romantic
Now, you might ask why COMO Metropolitan. COMO doesn't give you roses on your bed or offer any couple themes. Nonetheless, COMO gives the simple touch to every single romantic dimension that you wish for. Everything seems to be very minimal at COMO but that makes it ideal. It is about the more personal accessory you are able to put into your romance per se.
For example, a day chilling by the pool with your lover is irresistible. Or treat him/her some relaxing moment with a nurturing massage. COMO would satisfy you and your partner with the relaxing and romantic package.
The plan is set, you now just have to relax and enjoy your romantic getaway with your loved one. My ideal of romance is just that simple but in the end, it is all about the quality time you could spend together. But a touch of luxury would spice up the romance, maybe?
