In more detail

Let’s begin with the rooms, each one the epitome of modern Thai luxury. Utterly elegant, all feature the expected modern conveniences alongside opulent marble bathrooms and sweeping views across the city skyline and river below. Grand Rooms and suites take things up a notch, with the likes of teak panelling, spacious living rooms, state-of-the-art audio/visual systems and, in some cases, a private balcony or terrace.

The dining here is exceptional, as you’d expect. From the authentic Cantonese delights of Mei Jiang Chinese Restaurant to the Thai delicacies of Thiptara and the international favourites at the River Café & Terrace, dishes are utterly delicious, immaculately presented and packed full of flavour. And there’s plenty of choice for an aperitif or night-cap too, with The Bar and The River Bar both providing delightful spots to enjoy a cocktail or glass of fine wine. And don’t forget to take afternoon tea in the lobby – it’s arguably the best in the city.

But that’s not all. After a busy day exploring the city, guests can look forward to a revitalising treatment at The Spa, a dip in the palm-framed riverside pool, a work-out at the gym or even a game of tennis, with courts on site hidden amid the lush tropical gardens.
