Located in centre of one of the worlds’ most exciting cities, Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is not only in a convenient location but is a truly luxurious stay. Art and nature combine in elegant design to form a beautiful retreat, resembling more of a resort than a hotel in the heart of a metropolis.
A grand lobby is adorned with hand painted silk ceilings and traditional Thai architecture, which leads up to a magnificent staircase – the perfect scene for glamour shots (as pictured below) – and sculptures and art pieces line the hallways. Grounds are lush, flourishing with native plants and even the balconies of the multi-story hotel are planted with hundreds of bougainvillea.
Rooms vary in size and price catering to a range of budgets and needs. Our stay was in a newly renovated Premier Room offering 42 square metres of space and mirroring the elegant Thai touches seen throughout the hotel. All the standards that’d you expect of a 5 star hotel are included, but showing the desire to go above and beyond expectations, complimentary use of a smartphone is provided as well. No need to purchase expensive SIM cards or roaming services when staying here!
A spa, very well equipped gymnasium, garden-lined pool and recreation area, and boutique-shopping arcade could easily keep us from wanting to leave the hotel grounds. Backed up by a phenomenal gamut of restaurants, alongside a continuous scheduling of special events such as the World Gourmet Festival (an incredible affair with some of the world’s top chefs all under the same roof for an entire week), and the famous Sunday Brunch offering a free flow of vintage Champagne, staying in is not such a bad idea at all.
Reasons to visit: well located; comfortable rooms; lots of green space; an extraordinary range of food and beverage offerings (including some very special events); beautiful Thai art works that adorn the hotel.
