Despite its central location in the heart of Bangkok’s financial and shopping districts, the Anantara Bangkok Sathorn provides a tranquil respite, thanks to a sexy, urban style, faultless service, a relaxing pool and a pampering spa. When this contemporary design hotel in twin 37-story skyscrapers opened, it received rave reviews for its here-to-please staff — and that’s saying something in a country known as “the land of smiles.”
Bed and Bath
The 425 spacious guestrooms and suites are housed in twin towers and come in several sizes: Premier Rooms, One-Bedroom Suites and Two-Bedroom Suites. Suites look like trendy apartments, with separate dining areas and big living spaces kitted out with comfy couches and coffee tables. A dining area and computer workspace complete the clever layout. The decor is a soothing mod style in beige, white and tea. Suites are a good choice for families or for long stays, with two separate bedrooms and a streamlined, city-chic design. All room types have spacious bathrooms with oversize tubs and rain showers.
Joining the two skyscrapers is an alfresco swimming pool, complete with a sun lounger–dotted deck that is always full of sunbathers. The exemplary staff will deliver Evian spray bottles and ice towels to your lounger, and you can also dine on pizza from the Italian restaurant, Crust, or on Thai curries and international dishes from 100˚ East. On this level there is also a 24-hour fitness center with free weights and cross-training machines.
In the Area
Sometimes referred as “Bangkok’s Wall Street,” the fast-growing financial district of Sathorn is lined with skyscrapers and luxury apartment buildings and is well worth a wander. Designed by concept firm AvroKo, just on Sathorn Square, Ku De Ta has multiple dining rooms and two clubs to party in. First-time visitors shouldn’t miss a cocktail at Sirocco at the top of the LeBua State Tower. Drinks are pricey, but worth it for the spectacular city views.
How to Get There
Overall is good in service, cleanliness, location, friendliness and accommodation. BTS is just nearby and convenient. Sometimes long wait for lift. Traffic outside hotel is very heavy all days except on Sunday causing delays. Need to wait a while before vehicle can move out of hotel area.
This is my 2nd time staying with Anantara Sathorn. We have decided to return to this property after having an enjoyable and value for money stay in our stay last year. Despite the place being quite far away from the Chong Nongsi BTS, getting around Bangkok is not really a problem. You can also take the hotel shuttle which departs at a scheduled time.
Other than the above, I cannot find any negative points about Anantara. From its superb service crew who are ever smiling and attentive down right to the room setup and facilities, I can only say the overall experience is of 5 star quality. Special mention to Louis, Cho and Pang.
I would also like to thank the breakfast crew members for maintaining their composure while working tirelessly during the peak hours of weekend. There was this senior kitchen crew (wearing dark uniform) who came out to help the service crew and diverting crowd to another area. Good that management empowers the staff to make key decision during times like this. That itself helps to reduce the waiting time.
The property despite its age is well maintained (i.e. the room and facilities are still in top notch condition).
I can only say that you will not regret staying at Anantara Sathorn. Be ready to be wowed.
All staff from front desk is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is near to BTS so we could get to any place we need easily. Also the rooftop bar view is stunning. If we come to Bangkok again we will choose your hotel for sure.
We stayed here as part of a layover between trips. Our 3 night stay was amazing. Greeted by friendly reception staff who insist on taking your bags to offering us a free drink when the elevator line up was too long due to a bus of people arriving. The hotel room was elegant and well equipped with everything you need. All the food served was delirious and I highly recommend the Friday night buffet.
Booked a Two Bedroom Suite which is very big (good enough for 5 adults). Breakfast is good and everything is fine except that shuttle service is short (stops after 5 pm) and only one way from hotel to BTS Chong-Nonsri only instead of round trip. This service is important as the traffic is bad and the hotel is not very near to BTS which is the best way to move around.
The lifts are not working very well.
