Unique style, riverside tranquillity and luxury in abundance
This urban sanctuary is a total Bangkok one-off. While Thailand’s capital has plenty of excellent hotels to choose from, nowhere else offers such a luxuriously intimate oasis. The style is east meets west, as Thai-colonial touches combine harmoniously with Art deco aesthetics. In an enviable location overlooking the Chao Phraya River, both a peaceful atmosphere and exquisite backdrop is assured.
Just 39 suites are spread across the spacious grounds. Ranking among the largest in the city, each is uniquely designed, but all benefit from huge beds, high wooden ceilings and stylish art deco bathrooms. The private pool villas are another Bangkok first, and the perfect way to cool off in private. Art and antiques are scattered throughout the hotel, where Ming and Tang ceramics sit side by side with vintage gramophones and even a stuffed crocodile.
The hotel’s own private riverboat will take you anywhere you want to go, with Bangkok’s attractions all within easy reach. But it’s in post-sightseeing pleasures that The Siam really excels. Swim laps in the river-view infinity pool, catch a movie at the private cinema, or work on your wellbeing at the blissful Opium Spa. There’s even Muay Thai lessons on offer at the hotel’s own professional boxing ring.
You can’t beat gazing out at dusk and unwinding with a cocktail while the city lights twinkle. In the evening, head to the Chon Thai Restaurant for authentic Thai cuisine in a traditional teak house. We recommend the roast duck red curry and chargrilled river prawns.
