We have just spent 3 amazing days in Bangkok at the incredible Siam Hotel.
Set on the riverbank of the Chao Phraya river in the historical Dusit region, this boutique hotel is head and shoulders above the rest.
With a total of only 39 suites on the 3 acre property, every detail of your stay is tended to by your very own butler. We stayed in one of the Siam Suites. An 80sqm room divided into a sitting room, bedroom, study and bathroom. We absolutely loved the layout of this suite.
Each of the suites is individually styled and themed and no two rooms are the same. Historical art and decor compliment throughout the entire property having been collected by The Siam’s creative director Krissada Sukosol Clapp over 10 years.
The lap pool sits right on the edge of the Chao Phraya river. Complimentary pool towels, cold water, sunscreen and cold face washers are provided leaving you to relax while taking in the river life – which is aplenty.
Cocktails and canapes on the pier deck at sunset are a must before dining on home-cooked Thai cuisine at the Chon Thai Restaurant or heading into the city on the shuttle boat.
The hotels’ private boat provides a complimentary shuttle service to a number of stops along the river saving you having to fight the famous Bangkok traffic. This was one of the real highlights of our stay. Being able to see Bangkok from the river is a truly authentic experience.
The grounds of The Siam are immaculately kept and absolutely stunning to photograph. There is so much history here, you could spend hours just wandering.
If the hustle and bustle of city life isn’t for you, you can opt for one of the activities offered in-house at The Siam.
The Siam Cooking School offers an unforgettable cooking experience, Join the chef at the local market to collect fresh ingredients before heading back to The Siam to cook and eat a three-course meal.
Muay Thai Lessons offer the opportunity to learn the basics of this historical Thai combat training by a professional trainer in the purpose built ring. If you are already familiar with this training, let one o the trainers push you to your limits. Cross-fit and personal training is also available on request.
The Opium Spa by Sodashi in 2015 was voted # 1 in City Spas by Conde Nast Traveller’s and offers a huge range of services. Choose from a signature massage or facial or opt for an all day, or multi-day spa package.
Yoga classes are offered in many different forms and can be tailored to your needs.
Movie Theatre offers new release movies in the comfort of the hotel.
Sunday Brunch is served from 12pm – 4pm every Sunday and offers an a-la-carte menu with dishes cooked by Executive Chef Damri Muksombat. An idyllic setting and great way to end the weekend.
If you are up for an adventure into this wonderful city, your butler will be happy to help you arrange your itinerary. A sunset or dinner cruise along the river, or a night out in chinatown will take you to the heart of Bangkok.
During the day, be sure to check out the Chatuchak Market (weekends only). With over 5000 stalls ranging from food and clothing to pets and antiques, there is certainly something here for everyone.
This hotel itself is incredible but the staff at The Siam go above and beyond to ensure your stay is nothing but amazing.
Each night your bed is turned down and soothing music plays throughout your suite – making a gorgeous touch when soaking in the deep bath tub!
Once you have decided on your plans for the day/night, your butler will provide maps and information on the locations you have chosen to go – complete with a card detailing the location and directions back to the hotel in Thai to get you home safely.
The complimentary shuttle boat was great. Not only was it a great way to see the city, it saved us countless hours fighting the traffic.
