We were interested in wandering around different neighborhoods, tasting foods at some markets, shopping, and sightseeing. Anantara Siam Bangkok, a Four Seasons Property until the spring of 2015, is ideally situated in the heart of the Ratchaprasong shopping and entertainment district to fulfill all of our needs and we are so pleased to have stayed at this property.
Located in the city center, Anantara Siam Bangkok is a luxury urban retreat. Access to the rest of Bangkok is straightforward. Whether you choose to explore on foot, by traveling on the nearby and extremely efficient Skytrain, or by private car hire, the central location of the hotel will get you to your destination quickly. However, during rush hour, forget about getting a taxi. You will wait forever. During peak times, we recommend an alternative such as Uber(as of this post-currently suspended in Bangkok) or public transportation.
The grand property features 353 rooms and suites. The warm and inviting ambiance lends its’ esthetic from traditional Thai and contemporary design. We enjoyed the spaciousness of our suite that featured an extremely comfortable bed (perfect for catching up on some sleep), large closet area, two vast and well-equipped bathrooms, and a separate living room and office.
The Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel offers ten restaurant options that will suit everyone’s taste. From upscale traditional Thai cuisine at Spice Market to Madison, a fabulous steakhouse to international fare at all price ranges your taste buds will surely be tantalized by exciting and global flavors. We enjoyed the morning buffet at The Terrace. Naturally, we gravitated to the Thai offerings, but also enjoyed the well-stocked pastry section and the delicious iced coffee while we planned our day’s activities.
Activities and Special Amenities
A unique amenity to the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is that each guest is given a smartphone to use during his or her stay. This option is perfect for international travelers like ourselves so that we can make phone calls and use the Internet while we are out and about.
Be sure to spend time on yourself and get pampered at the spa! Or lounge the day away poolside. If you feel inclined to workout to balance all of the tasty eats in Bangkok, the gym is for you to keep up with your normal routine. Be sure to have the concierge arrange fantastic outings to explore Bangkok and beyond.
For the little ones, upon check-in, all receive a welcome amenity, children’s bathrobes, and toiletries, as well as bedtime milk and cookies. All restaurants have dedicated menus to suit the younger tykes’ palates.
Kasara Lounge (Club Lounge)
Perfect for corporate travelers as well as guests desiring even more attentive service, we highly recommend paying the extra fee for Kasara Lounge access. There is a dedicated concierge, private meeting rooms, and a 24-hour business center. Naturally, we enjoyed the complimentary all-day snacks and cocktails. Whenever we travel, even if it’s for leisure, we still have to work. As always, if a property offers a clubroom, we highly recommend the additional charge as it allows you to work in a setting similar to home. It’s also the perfect place to start your day in peace unwind with a glass of champagne after a day of discovering the city.
The pulse of the city can be felt at the Anantara Siam Bangkok. Located in the heart of Bangkok, this luxurious oasis in the city checked off all of our needs during our most recent trip. We wanted an elegant property, attentive service, club room access for work (and relaxing), and a central location. Our stay lived up to our expectations, and we highly recommend a stay at the Anantara Siam Bangkok for a decidedly elegant yet city life experience.
