Bushbaby Travel: Inspiring travel for life
Anantara Riverside Resort

Anantara Riverside Resort, Bangkok

bushbaby rating

A tropical haven of peace and tranquillity on the banks of the river, yet only a 10-minute shuttle boat ride to the City of Angels, the Anantara Riverside Resort is an oasis of calm. Spend the day exploring the vibrant city of Bangkok before relaxing at the spa. In the evening, head to the city’s largest night market just opposite the hotel entrance where you can shop until you drop, before retreating to the hotel terrace for cocktails. City life or river life, the pace is up to you.

  • rooms

    All rooms are spacious and light, with floor to ceiling windows and private balconies and a choice of river or garden view. The Suites have a larger living space with the addition of a sofa and writing desk, or the Anantara Riverfront Suites offer separate living spaces, dining area, bar and wrap-around balconies. The two bedroom Chao Phraya River Suites have spacious accommodation with separate living and dining area plus two separate bedrooms.

  • facilities & activities

    The fabulous location is not surprisingly the main selling point here; close enough to the city to explore and yet surrounded by 11 acres of peaceful tropical gardens with lovely river views.  However, the resort is also home to the largest outdoor pool in Bangkok, a welcoming jacuzzi, outdoor tennis courts and a wide range of fitness classes. You can also try your hand a Muay Thai boxing with a professional instructor, or how about a cookery class at the Anantara cooking school to really show off your new skills back home.
    The complimentary shuttle service means the city’s attractions are within easy striking distance, or enjoy one of the in-house boat cruises and guided city excursions on offer. There is also the unique ‘Streetwise Guru’ who will take you on a tour of the hidden gems of the city, amongst the Thai markets and wooden shop houses, to sample local fare in tucked away places.
  • dining

    With a choice of 10 different bars and restaurants, you could eat somewhere different every day for a week and still not have tried them all. Eclectic choices include a Japanese Teppanyaki Steakhouse, Italian restaurant and Polynesian bar all found within the lush tropical setting, or go al fresco and eat riverside enjoying the cityscape reflected on the water. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that all members of the family will be well catered for.

  • family

    All ages are welcome here. It’s a great setting for both younger kids and older teens with plenty at the resort to keep them occupied, yet the city’s delights and exciting nightlife lie only a short distance away. There is a good Children's Club where they can enjoy making jewellery or perhaps try Thai dance, whilst you dip into the city at leisure or simply enjoy a quiet drink by the river. Babysitting is also available for those who fancy a trip to the city at night.

    The Family Suite can easily fit a family of four or interconnecting Deluxe River View rooms can be guaranteed for a small fee. An additional bed can also be added.

  • location

    Found on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the resort is a 45-minute drive from Suvarnabhumi International Airport and only a 12-minute boat ride from Saphan Taksin skytrain station, the most convenient connection to all other locations within the city. The resort also offers complimentary boat transfers which depart every 20 minutes.
