Three years after, this hotel stays our prefered place to stay in Bangkok. Some changes after the pandemic, but still a great place to spend a vacation in Bangkok. It’s a rare place in Bangkok, where you feel completely on holidays and cut from the busy streets of the city. The rooms need some refreshment and the growing number of indian weddings made me put a 4 out of 5. But I am very emotionally attached to this place and I will certainly come back again
Our first stay in the anatara riverside and it certainly won’t be our last. Booked the anatara after a well Known hotel chain let us down last minute with the test and go covid restrictions. From the moment I emailed To enquire about a reservation the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and even advised on the test and go allocation procedures. I had a million questions and every time I emailed tye reservation staff they were Back to me within the hour with a reply! I’ve never received service like this, absolutely outstanding. From arrival at BKK airport when we were picked up by the hotel to arriving and completing our PCR the whole experience was very smoothly run, I asked if I could have my test results as soon as they came in and was called in the room at 6am (10 hours after test). This hotel is beautiful, a little bit of paradise in a bustling city. But I wouldn’t say it’s the hotel that has made our stay special. It’s the staff, I know Thailand is the land of smiles….or should I say the anantara Is. From the gardeners, to the house keepers, bar staff, restaurant staff to supervisors and managers, the staff are superb! The reception staff will help with any printing out of documents, organise taxis, Tuk tuks. Pookie the supervisor on reception even managed to sort my husbands iPhone out after we’d had a problem with it! They all go above and beyond. We didn’t visit many restaurants as we were only in Bangkok for a short time but trader vics where breakfast served was beautiful, the setting, the food, the staff, all amazing! A huge variety of food from an egg station to cooked breakfast, Thai breakfast, fresh fruit and juices, pastries, beautiful and fresh. We would sit on the terrace every morning and watch the boats come by on the chao priya river. The staff are on hand every where you look and are very efficient and as ever super friendly. Their English is very good and they’re always willing to go above and beyond. Our room 409 had an amazing view of the river and the grounds as was immaculate. The housekeeping staff do a fantastic job and sanitise every single surface and handle, which in this day an age is a must for me. All in all an outstanding hotel with the best staff I’ve ever came across in a hotel and this will definitely be my new hotel on returning to Thailand.…
Thank you for an excellent stay at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort. We had lovely days in the resort and Bangkok. Beautiful oasis in the midst of Bangkok with very friendly staff and wonderful hotel facilities, pool area and restaurants. Highly recommended hotel!
Stayed in this resort many times in the last decade for its great hospitality and tranquility. However, our recent stay was a real disappointment. Hotel lacks experienced staff and hence service standard has gone down tremendously. The resort was holding a wedding party for a few days which is good for the resort especially after the downtime caused by the epidemic, but allowing loud music to play in the party room (which caused vibrations to most rooms in the main building) passed midnight has simply gone too far for a 5 stars resort in this location, we were not able to sleep because of this. Also surprised that defects for many years e.g. the control of shower temperature, the sensor lights/wardrobe door have not been fixed during the downtime while price for the room has gone up quite a bit. Overall a bad stay experience. We will not stay again in a near future until the resort sorts itself out. …
not impressive with the room view, the facility was quite old, but the breakfast was acceptable, like the gym most, common fitness equipments were all included, very nice the vibe at swimming pool were relaxing
The Anantara lies perfectly at the riverside (you reach everything quite fast). After entering the estate it feels somehow like an oasis in bustling Bangkok with a nice pool (and jacuzzi, great experience in the warm water while it's raining!), great food (terrific breakfast, especially the manifold Asian dishes!!) and warm service. The kid's club is quite small but our kids enjoyed it anyway. Well, what to say on the negative side? --> Definitely some rooms need renovation. They are clean but not really too cozy. We also had the problem of 'rolling beds', they always separated us from each other. We're not able to solve that problem during our stay. But all in all we really really loved this family oasis and will probably come back when next time in Bangkok (where many 5* hotels do not have the resort vibe like the Anantara, but are more luxury-business hotels... the Anantara feels like REAL holiday instead).…
We had a fantastic stay at Anantara Riverside Bangkok. From the preparations for our stay until the end Khun Ian supported us very well and professionel. The hotel has a wonderful ambience and the nice pool area is surrounded by flowers and plants. The rooms are very nice, clean, stylish and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is very, very rich and you can find all you like and all is beautiful presented. The breakfast manager Khun Lanna and her staff do a very good job and they are very friendly and attentive to making you feel like at home. There is also a free boat Service every 30 minutes to the other side of the river until late night. We could defenitely not immagine to have a better stay at Bangkok and we hope to stay there again in the future.
Due to a booking problem we could only stay for one night After finally arriving the riverview room was a very pleasant surprise.. the indian wedding raking place in the hotel that day was a little bit noisy but very colourful and pleasant to watch
a good experience,all good,i have never had covid-19 before,and i come here once or twice a year,i don't know how to explain,when taking a shower,the water at one temperature will be hot and freeze at time
Our stay was amazing. All details were taken care of, the staff was always ready to help and the facilities were spacious, clean and safe. The food (breakfast and in-room dining) was delicious. Highly recommended!
