About The Sukhothai Hotels & Resorts
The Sukhothai hotel logo consists of twenty-two diamond droplets building up the Chedi design that was inspired by Sukhothai, the first capital of Siam. Each drop of diamond, polished to an identical marquise shape and seemingly finding its own position within the whole, represents the individuals of the qualified hotel staff who, guided by intuition yet precise in every detail, anticipate our guest’s needs and deliver their exceptional services.
Each property remains distinct within the brand portfolio and is uniquely designed while still representing the essential quality that is the hallmark of the brand.
