The Siam is a charming slice of peace and calm close to the teeming city of Bangkok. It’s owned by Krissada Sukosol Clapp, and includes both 28 suites and 11 private villas, including a teak villa previously owned by Thai socialite Connie Mangskau. While three of Connie’s other previous structures have been turned into restaurants by the Siam, the last one is now available to guests as Connie’s Cottage. The Siam has meticulously restored and maintained the beautifully designed, two-level villa where Mangskau once entertained the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy and William Holden.
- The Siam rests on three acres of land in Bangkok, alongside the Chao Praya River.
- The wealth of land keeps the famous villa secluded from city din, even though it is actually easily accessible to many of the city’s famous attractions.
- Guests are welcomed by a courtyard, bordered by green ferns, dappled with sunshine, and a fountain shaped like a lotus.
“The 28 suites in the main building are spectacular in their own right, but head out back toward the river and you’ll find 11 private pool villas hidden behind wooden doors, with one in particular that’s known as the property’s most special.”
