Lit is the latest hotel to launch in Bangkok. Designed by local firm Vaslab, it makes some bold architectural statements with its detached façade and open plan bedrooms. Bangkokians may choose to visit either for a bite at BCDE or for the spa, Kiriya. Its treatments are inspired by Thailand’s four main regions: Southern, Northern, Eastern and Central. For example, the slow rhythmic moves of the Southern nora dance serve as the basis for a deep, strong massage preceded by a coconut facial (South Sea Secret, B3,600 for 130 min). Lit is also one to watch, as its bar is still under construction, and should offer fun drinking and tapas options this winter. Kiriya is open daily 10am-10pm. G/F, Lit Hotel, 36/1 Soi Kasemsan 1, Rama 1 Rd., 02-612-3456. BTS National Stadium. www,litbangkok.com.
