Reviewed 17 March 2014

I stayed at the Anantara Riverside Resort & Spa in February 2014 with my fiance. It was our first time to Thailand and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. Upon arriving in Bangkok, we decided to use the Sky Train and Boat Taxi and the hotel looks simply beautiful as you get closer to it on the boat. Don't let the hotel's location put you off, far from it. We found it's location a haven after a day out in Bangkok, enjoyin the peace and quiet the location offers. The hotel runs Boat Taxis every 15 minutes to the other side of the river, for free, which makes everything so very accessible.The hotel staff were polite, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is a large hotel, but doesn't feel as it is due to the layout, and certainly never felt over-crowded or busy. Definitely worth a stay, we loved it and was sad to leave!

Friendly and professional staff at Kasara Lounge, Breakfast area and Pool bar and pool area. Excellent room-keeping. You cannot feel better as to stay at Anantara. Starting with extraordinary friendly doorman/woman to Reception or Kasara Lounge. Every year a surprise that the staff can remember you and are reading your wishes from your eyes. Together with a tropical paradise in the middle of Bangkok on a cat-jump into the trouble of the city you can`t expect more than Anantara offers you. Leaving the hotel we plan always the next stay. It`s like a coming home.

Room Tip: I prefer since years rooms with a view to the river. Sitting here to watch the "travel" on...

We stayed at the Anantara Riverside Resort & Spa for three nights in March with my wife and 11 month old son and it's hands down the best hotel we've stayed at in Bangkok.

This has everything you'd want from a resort style hotel, meaning there's no need to go off-site, however the opportunity to leave and explore Bangkok is easy enough.

The hotel isn't centrally located, situated just on the other side of the river from the Asiatique shopping centre complex, but this wasn't a problem. There's a free shuttle boat that drops you off at the Saphan Thaksin pier, where you can get boats or trains that take you all over Bangkok. The boat also drops you off at Asiatique, which is a great place to get food in the evenings and only a five minute trip.

From the moment we checked in we felt a great warmth at the hotel, with the staff providing a friendly greeting and making a real fuss over our little boy. This warmth became a theme for the duration of our stay, with all staff taking the time out to talk and help - the Spa Director and even hotel Manager took the time to chat, offering tips and asking us about our stay.

We had a room in the main hotel, which was surprisingly large with a balcony big enough for a table and two chairs, which caught the afternoon sun. There was a separate shower and bath with two sinks as well as a vanity table in the bathroom.

The bed was large with a duvet and plenty of decent pillows and the room was well appointed, even with fresh milk in the fridge for your tea or coffee.

The hotel has a great pool with a shallow area for kids, bar, and even a separate jacuzzi. There are enough loungers around the pool to satisfy everyone and despite a few kids enjoying the water, it felt quiet and relaxing.

Food at the hotel was first class. Breakfast had everything you could wish for, even apple crumble, with the option to sit outside or inside. Everything was fresh with a variety that would ensure you could eat something different each morning for a month.

There are a number of restaurants on site and ate outside at the less formal restaurant by the pier on our last night, and had some fantastic Thai food. We also ordered room service one night, which we didn't have to wait an age for, and it was presented well and tasted great.

We also had a coffee and cake one afternoon at Numero Uno, which is heaven for anyone with a sweet tooth. The range of chocolates, cakes, pastries and sweets here are as good as at any coffee shop in town.

All in all, we had a wonderfully relaxing and pleasant stay at the Anantara Riverside Resort and will stay here the next time we're lucky enough to be in Bangkok.

Great staff. Good restaurants. Rooms are slightly worn down, poor craftsmanship (shower door didn't close, tons of water ion the floor each time you took a shower. Toilet from 1982...? etc.) Pool area (tiles from 1983...?) felt a bit worn down and smells of diesel from the ferry boats. All in all, we had a nice stay here, but will probably chose a different hotel (Ramada or Sheraton Royal Orchid) next time, closer to sky train and much better river views. Better value for your money elsewhere.

Situated on the opposite side of the river to the main city attractions but don't let that put you off. The hotel has its own boat which shuttles across to the other side every 15 minutes or so.
The hotel is large but the way it is laid out it never seems busy. Rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. Staff are very attentive from reception to domestic and catering and nothing seems too much of a problem for them. The pool is well laid out and there always seems to be a sunbed available. Nice pool bar with great staff.
Breakfast must be seen to be believed ! Just about everything you could imagine is on offer and is fresh and well prepared. Breakfast or dinner on the river terrace is a well worth it experience.
The hotel is low rise unlike many of the other main hotels on the river and there are plants and trees throughout the site which make it an oasis after the hustle and bustle of the city.
A delight to stay here and without doubt would be my first choice if I visit Bangkok again.

The hotel location is one of the best in Bangkok. i stayed there 8 nights. I was there to attend a marriage. Everything was so nice and smooth. Wish to go again and stay there. Love you Anantara river side. Rooms, bathrooms are excellent. Food is very good. Every type of food is available for round the globe visitors. The Asiatic market is nearby. A free ferry is available to go to Asiatic market and BTS station.

Room Tip: river side have very good view.
