SO Sofitel Hua Hin unveils new swim zone
SO Sofitel Hua Hin has officially launched the SO Wet Bubble, the newest swimming pool play zone in Phetchaburi province.
The SO Wet Bubble play zone has an inflatable dome shape and is a state-of-the-art structure like no other. With its design based on a bright cartoon octopus, it is much more than a normal swimming pool play area. There are water playgrounds, bouncers, climbing walls and slides. The surface is lubricated by water jets fired from a fountain above, which increases the fun for children and adults alike.
To celebrate the school break, the hotel launches a special offer “Family Fun At SO Wet Bubble Room Package”, with prices starting from 4,555 baht++ per room per night for stays until Dec 23. The offer includes breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children (under 12 years old), resort credit of 1,000 baht net per room per night to spend at the hotel’s restaurant and spa, plus a free 20-minute H2SO water scooter.

Thai desserts at Ayatana.
Dusit Thani Kyoto opens with fine-dining highlight
Dusit Thani Kyoto officially celebrated its grand opening in September by unveiling Dusit’s unique brand of Thai-inspired hospitality and a range of exciting dining and wellness experiences including the hotel’s signature fine-dining restaurant Ayatana.
Conceived exclusively for the hotel by acclaimed Thai chefs Duangporn “Bo” Songvisava and Dylan Jones, who earned global recognition including a Michelin star at their former Bangkok restaurant Bo.Lan, Ayatana offers a sensory journey unlike any other.
Taking inspiration from the rich cultures of Thailand and Japan, every element of the restaurant has a story to tell, starting with the name — Ayatana — a Sanskrit word which in Buddhist philosophy refers to the six senses: sight, sound, scent, taste, touch and mind. Ayatana’s unique multisensory culinary journey integrates all of these senses to deliver dining experiences that excite and delight on multiple levels — delivering a symphony of sensations from start to finish.
The entire dinner experience takes around 2.5 hours.
Ayatana is open daily for dinner journeys (except Tue and Wed) from 5.30-10pm (last orders at 8pm). Prices start at ¥24,800 (6,000 baht) including tax and service charge.
W Sydney elevates Darling Harbour
W Hotels has announced the highly anticipated opening of W Sydney. Located in a dramatic curved structure rising over Darling Harbour, W Sydney is set to become a coveted destination for travellers and Sydneysiders alike.
Located within The Ribbon and designed by acclaimed Australian architectural firm Hassell, W Sydney rises above the roadways to hug Darling Harbour. Its interiors are designed by London-based Bowler James Brindley, who conceived W Sydney through the authenticity of the city’s history, spirit and lore, from the marine-inspired rooms and suites to the distinctive restaurant and bars. At the heart of the hotel’s design story is “the larrikin”, a quintessentially Australian character whose strong spirit informs and inspires the hotel’s luxe yet unconventional interiors.
Located just steps from Sydney’s International Convention Centre, the hotel features 1,300m² of exceptional event space across eight versatile rooms. On level five, W Sydney’s 592m² pillarless Great Room features floor-to-ceiling windows that afford extraordinary views of the city. The design connects to the lively Darling Harbour setting, with light fittings and a graphic carpet that explode in a creative tribute to Sydney’s famous fireworks.
