VELA be Ratchathewi

Time to explore the VELAverse at VELA be Bangkok Ratchathewi

Welcome to VELA be Bangkok Ratchathewi! We’re a lifestyle hotel right in the middle of the capital. It’s pretty different here, but we think you’ll like it.

We don’t have a lobby, we have a living room. It’s a place to relax, socialize, eat, drink and even work, if you’re the diligent type. Different? Yes. Unexpected? Definitely. A Thai hotel with all the local know-how — VELA be is your perfect Bangkok holiday HQ.

Each of our 72 rooms are smartly designed with travellers like you in mind. We’ve paid attention to details like comfy beds, cool décor, roomy marble bathrooms and yummy local food — all with a modern Thai twist.

We invite you into our universe of vibrant, wallet-friendly hospitality, jam-packed with surprises and details that delight.

A focus on quality essentials

VELA works tirelessly to ensure an affordable experience without compromising on style, quality, comfort and what modern travellers need. Recreating home comforts, our warm hospitality, relaxing ambience, plush bedding and premium linen ensures travellers feel comfortable and at ease, empowering them with the assurance to explore the city.

Breaking hotel food stereotypes

VELA be is a Thai brand, and Thai at heart. Priding ourselves on enriching your travel experiences, we ensure your cultural explorations does not end at the hotel door. Whether its to kick start your day or to wind down after a day of adventure, fuel your body’s needs at our dining room. Here we do the local thing with kao-gaeng (curry on rice) for breakfast and street-style dishes throughout the day. Pop in and trade the sticky heat for some sticky rice and bring those sugar levels back on track.

Channel your inner explorer

We know you’re down to explore, whether its haggling at the markets or tripping on Bangkok’s uneven pavements, so let us know if you need a taxi, a map or just directions. Rather get lost on your own? Take a hotel card on your way out the door.

At VELA be, we live for the moments — let us know how we can make yours extra special.

Live for the moments.
