Anantara Riverside


Located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort is one of the most instantly recognisable properties in Bangkok. Big, beautiful gardens and excellent all-round facilities give this property an ambiance more akin to a beach resort than a city hotel, which makes it a popular choice with guests seeking respite from the madness of the capital. The rooms are spacious and stylish with floor-to-ceiling windows, many offering river views and balconies, and some with ample space for a family. The decor is simple yet elegant with a contemporary Thai flair.

If you tire of the hotel’s ten eateries, Anantara's Manohra Cruise is a memorable way to spend an evening enjoying fine Thai cuisine as you sail along the Chao Phraya River aboard a restored wooden rice barge. All this and you're still within easy reach of Bangkok's shopping, entertainment and city highlights.


Overlooking the Chao Phraya River, the Anantara is just a 20-minute boat ride from the heart of the city, and around a 40-minute drive from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Why we love it

Discover what to expect from staying at Anantara Riverside

City oasis

A true oasis in the middle of the turbo-charged bustle of the capital. Low rise buildings and manicured gardens are not what you come to expect in Bangkok but that’s exactly what the Anantara gives you. A unique combination of city life and resort luxury, allowing you the freedom and convenience to explore the sights and return to utter relaxation at a resort where you would be forgiven for thinking you were on one of the islands.

What can you do there?

Well, where do we start? Enjoy some peace and quiet away from the city and tuck into delicious dishes at the hotel's fantastic range of restaurants. Learn about the rituals practised and offer food to the monks at the neighbouring temple, or watch Thai dancers perform a traditional ceremony everyday at dusk. If you’re feeling more energetic, make the most of the resort's facilities with a game of tennis, or spar in the Muay Thai boxing ring, before soaking your muscles in the steamy jacuzzi. If you'd like to try your hand at recreating some of the Thai dishes you have sampled, Anantara's purpose-designed cooking school offers interactive cooking classes too.

The kids club is brimming with activities, making it just one of the reasons the Anantara Riverside is an ideal choice for families. They can learn to dance, play football and even learn some skills in the kitchen. Head into the heart of the city to immerse them in the local culture and heritage, but when the kids simply can’t see another temple the hotel has plenty of ways for them to burn off some energy. Splash in the pool or play a few rounds of tennis before heading back to your spacious room or family suite to enjoy some down time together.
