We loved the way A&K presented their documentation in the travel wallet and the lux' luggage tags looked the business. The "Small touches" count! Every one likes to feel special from time to time and we certainly were made to feel as such by all at A&K.Thank you Vicky Smith
Hidden amid the glistening lights of Bangkok's metropolis, this peaceful tropical resort offers a unique way to experience urban living in Thailand's capital city. Set in an impressive 11 acres of exotic gardens, Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort boasts an incredible location overlooking the glittering waters of Chao Phraya River. Spread across the three main buildings, all rooms embody the elegance and simplicity of contemporary Asian style: high ceilings and dark wood furnishings complement splashes of vibrant silks, while private balconies offer city, garden or river views.
With 10 restaurants and bars to choose from, you can enjoy a diverse range of cuisines; try Benihana, a charming Japanese Teppanyaki steakhouse, or traditional Italian favourites at Brio, while the riverside terrace is the perfect spot for dining beneath the stars. We love the quaint Polynesian style of Trader Vic's Restaurant, which serves delicious Pacific Rim cuisine from a wood-fired oven and possibly the best Mai Thai cocktail we have ever had the pleasure of tasting.
Take an afternoon to lounge on the pool deck, enjoy a dip in the Jacuzzi or swim laps in one of Bangkok's largest outdoor pools. Other facilities include a modern fitness centre with daily classes, tennis courts and Chang Noi Kids' Club. Explore the surrounding area with one of the hotel's tailor-made excursions or head out to the Asiatique night market, a large new complex for shopping and nightlife. There are also eight golf courses close by.
Best time to be there
November to March. April is often the hottest month of the year, and also the month of the celebratory 'Songkran' festivals. May to October is the rainy season, with short bursts of rainstorms refreshing the green paddy fields once more.
