This full-service luxury resort in central Bangkok puts modern conveniences and age-old attractions in easy reach. Three towers house 354 rooms decked in a colorful montage of Thai-influenced fabrics and furnishings, and hand-painted silk ceilings crown the soaring lobby and central hotel spaces. Of five restaurants, the Tony Chi-designed Madison gets props for its steak and seafood fare, while Spice Market consistently ranks among the top Thai restaurants in Bangkok. The hotel’s health club also earns high marks for its selection of fitness equipment, and the holistic spa is a treat with a selection of Thai and East Asian-influenced treatments available in luxury spa suites, poolside or in the privacy of your room.
In the Area
For a real taste of Bangkok heritage, the 19th-century, Carrara marble-clad temple known as Wat Benchamabophit is a must-see. Early each morning, the monks of the temple line up to receive alms, and your concierge can inform you of any candlelit processions or other notable temple events during your stay. Grand Palace and the adjacent Wat Pho, or Temple of the Reclining Buddha, also draw admirers year-round. For shopping, the landmark Chatuchak Market offers 8,000-plus stalls set on 35 acres for boundless retail therapy, while Patpong Night Market and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market should be on any serious shopper’s list. At night, Sky Bar on the 63rd floor of The Dome at Lebua is home to one of the highest open-air bars in the world, as well as one of the best views in Bangkok.
How to Get There
I regret that I only stayed in Anantara Siam for two nights. The hotel is situated right in the center but just off the hustle and bustle. Very classic and spacious rooms. The room was cleaned everyday and turn down service was definitely a plus. I was a bit worried that the pool may not get enough sun but I was wrong. The pool was big and though it is right in the middle of tall building it had enough sun at the times I stayed( around 11am-3 pm and 3-5pm) The hotel may seem old but they maintain it very well so for us, it was a plus as it was very classy and a heritage like. The lobby area was always peaceful with wonderful scent in the air. The breakfast area was big enough with enough varieties. The small courtyard with lots of green plants made the hotel feel like an oasis in the busy city. We also loved the afternoon tea at the lobby lounge. It was just relaxing to sip tea and talk. We loved our stay and if we go back to Bangkok we will definitely go back to Anantara Siam.
You feel you are in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, experiencing the culture, right inside the hotel. The location is near to flea markets as well as huge retail malls giving the best options for shopping.
Overall the hotel services fantastic and enjoy the breakfast. Recommended to stay here. Easy access to shopping mall and supermarket. Hotel also provides the airport transfers.
Hotel a bit old but very clean.
overall the stay was comfortable. Anantara provides luxury stay and the staffs were helpful and try their best to accommodate our needs during stay. We enjoyed the gym facility and SPA. We were invited to their vocation club pitch, it was a nightmare. They will hook you up with a 4000 Baht cash voucher to use in the hotel, but the pitch was very stressful and bad. They would try everyone to push you for a USD 10000 hotel memberships. If you google on the internet, mostly negative feedback, think twice before joining the pitch, we were not expected one so that kind of wasted two hours of our time during the day for a stupid pitch like that.
Outstanding hotel property with excellent restaurants and choices at Madison (white asparagus season) and Shintaro buffet, and the breakfast food selection & variety was excellent along with the attentive staff.
