Bangkok’s only hotel to offer private pools villas opens on the banks of the Chao Phraya River
Today the highly anticipated The Siam Hotel on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok’s Dusit district welcomes its first guests.
In Bangkok’s saturated hotel market, newcomers need to strive to bring something new in order to attract more than a day’s worth of interest. The Siam is bound to hold more than it’s fair share Bangkok travelers’ attention spans for some time to come, due in no small part to the introduction of Bangkok’s first private pool villas.
The Siam is owned and operated by the Sukosol celebrity family of hoteliers and popular musicians. When rock singer and actor son Krissada Sukosol Clapp inherited 3 acres of riverfront land it enabled the fulfillment of his lifelong dream and provided a venue to showcase his extensive collection of antiques, which are displayed in each guest room and in public spaces throughout the hotel.
Well-priced food and drinks at the signature TASTE restaurant as well as eight hours non-stop breakfast concept starting from four am to 12 noon.

The 200-room property aims to provide all guests with a perfect seaside getaway offering international standards, warm and friendly services and excellent value for money. ibis Hua Hin is the first ibis hotel in Hua Hin and the eighth ibis property in Thailand.
Less than two kilometers from the heart of Bangkok, you will find the semi-rural “green lung of Bangkok” surrounded by mango palms and lamphu trees.
It may be hard to believe, but travel less than two kilometers from the bustling heart of Bangkok, across the muddy river waters of the Chao Phraya River, and you are in the semi-rural “green lung of Bangkok” surrounded by mango palms and lamphu trees.
It is in this setting that the highly anticipated, all-green, 12 suite Bangkok Tree House makes it’s debut in January 2012. Originally scheduled to open in November 2011, the recent floods that devastated Thailand have delayed the opening by a few weeks.
Owner Joey Tulyanond envisioned and built Bangkok Tree House to be more than carbon neutral. They promise to clean up one kilo of trash from the Chao Phraya River for every booking made.
A truly unique property in Bangkok and one of my personal all-time favorites. – me.
The Hansar Bangkok is one of the newest boutique hotels to open on the city’s bustling Rajdamri Road. The location is excellent, close to a great variety of shops and plenty of restaurants. Lumpini Park is walking distance away, and the SkyTrain station is nearby, putting the entire city within easy reach within minutes.
While the location is excellent, the real delight here is the hotel itself. It offers a fascinating blend of Thai style and modern contemporary luxury, all accented with fresh flowers, local artifacts and homey touches such as floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. Guests are welcomed with a plate of seasonal Thai fruit in their room after checking in.
Stunning views of Siray Bay and beautiful sunsets every night from every room.
