The moment you step through the door you are transported into a bygone era of class and glamour where celebrities and royalty have, for many years, felt at home. Glass and monochrome contrasts with lush greenery as you wander through the cathedral ceilinged hallways and rooms filled with priceless antiquities. Within the grounds sit three traditional Thai teak homes, transported down the Chao Phraya River by The Siam’s original owner, Connie Mangskau. A prominent Thai Socialite, Connie was famous for her legendary parties and guests such as Jackie Kennedy and William Holden were regular visitors. Two of these homes are used as restaurants and one, Connie’s Cottage, can be booked as a private home for two.
Set on three acres of verdant river frontage, floor to ceiling windows shed light on the more traditional way of life in Bangkok with passing long tail boats, barges and fresh produce being delivered to the floating markets. The hotel’s private pier is home to a fleet of boats in which guests can get around easily to explore the bustling city.
The uniquely themed suites are located on two floors in the main residence adjacent to the spa, with convenient access to the gym, library and meeting room. Outside the Pool Villas boast lush private courtyards with plunge pool, leading onto the master bedroom and oversized bathroom. These can be connected by an external door for families or groups of friends and views can be of the river or garden.
Chon Thai is set within the century-old Thai teak houses in the hotel’s grounds and serves home cooked, authentic Thai cuisine as well as cooking classes. Deco Bar & Bistro serves international cuisine in a relaxed environment with a strong jazz theme. Cake and coffee can be enjoyed at Café Cha and Bathers Bar serves poolside cocktails with an unbeatable river view.
