Win a two-night stay at Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok

Last updated: June 25, 2024

Calling all Bangkokians. ROADBOOK has partnered with Karo Coffee Roasters and Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok to offer readers the chance to win a staycation in the Thai capital.

Far more than just a caffeine kick, a cup of coffee is both a morning ritual and cultural tradition; a moment of solitude or social interaction, depending on how you take your brew. It’s said that Voltaire drank up to 50 cups per day mixed with chocolate, while American author Frank Baum liked his coffee so strong he could float a spoon on it.

Considered a social hub as much as a coffee shop, Karo Coffee Roasters in Bangkok is lauded for its inclusive, community-driven ethos and house-roasted blends, which use ethically sourced beans from around the world. As part of a campaign to highlight the positive impact of micro-journeys – such as going for a specialty coffee, taking a mini-break or stopping for a moment to appreciate your own city – ROADBOOK has partnered with Karo Coffee Roasters to celebrate the transformative effect of a cup of coffee as well as Bangkok’s thriving coffee scene.


From 20 June to 20 July, 2024, visitors to Karo Coffee Roasters who purchase any of Karo’s specialty coffee drinks have the chance to win a two-night stay, including breakfast, at Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok to experience the equally transformative benefits of a staycation. The five-star hotel, perched behind Lumpini Park in the upscale Phloen Chit district, is noted for its sleek design, infinity pool and destination rooftop bar – and is considered one of the best hotels in the city.
