The Indochinese charm of the house of Eugène: The Cabochon, hotel and residence


This beautiful residence immerses you in the atmosphere of great colonial houses of the Indochina period.

At the end of a secluded lane in the frenzied heart of Sukhumvit, close to the lively bars of Thong Lo, the Cabochon provides an elegant and quiet haven. Here, the only distraction is the sound of birds. The home of Eugène seems timeless, with its large white facade with columns and balustrades, in front of the owner's carelessly parked old Mercedes.

The interior echoes the languorous and beautiful Indochinese ambiance: black lacquered wooden chairs, old trunks, vintage photographs, and a stuffed zebra head on the wall. The journey continues into the rooms decorated with retro shower stalls, marble floors, and leather sofas. In the restaurant, Isaan's delectable cuisine is showcased among teak furniture and antique birdcages. Only the large windows of the pool, through which the dizzying spectacle of urban subways between skyscrapers ceaselessly unfold, will remind you of the 21st century, so close, yet so far away…
