Stayed at the Siam in Bangkok for 4 days with 2 other couples. We enjoyed the hotel for the following reasons: 1. Colonial theme with very clean and sleek lines, black and white motif with lots of antiques displayed in different areas. Lush and well manicured gardens. Beautiful interiors inside and outside of the hotel. Relatively new. 2. Serene and... More

I picked the Siam after searching through a bunch of hotels. I go to Bangkok at least once a year and did not want to repeat my stays at the big name luxury chains. After perusing a bunch of reviews, I picked this hotel because of the large suites and raves about the amazing food. It definitely lived up to... More

We have just returned from a blissful weekend at The Siam. The property is really beautiful, full of antique furniture and artwork while maintaining a very zen and minimalist vibe. The bathtub in our suite was the highlight of the accommodation for me, I took three baths in 36 hours. The staff were amongst the most attentive of anywhere we... More

The Siam in Bangkok provides an exceptional and authentic Thai hotel/resort experience - without ever having to ever leave BKK... A solid choice to spend your $1000/day. The good: With the exception of the (2) entry level suite categories (they have no view and are rather dark) the Riverview Suites are unique and truly luxurious. Friends were staying in a... More

My partner and I recently enjoyed a short stay in a Pool Villa at The Siam. Quite simply this property is faultless. Our villa was gorgeous - spacious, stylish and provided everything we could want. The common areas and facilities are beyond beautiful, we had an amazing spa experience, enjoyed the common area pool overlooking the river and the pool... More

the hotel is absolutely beautiful but the real standout is the exceptional service.from our butler to the entire staff. the culmination being when our butler and General Manager Jason Friedman joined us in their launch for our trip to our next destination. They brought along wine and food and created a party along the way. It was over and above... More

The Siam is without doubt one of the most exceptional hotel experiences in the world. The architecture, amenities and service are really without comparison. We had a wonderful, relaxing and thoroughly indulgent weekend - and highly recommend the Pool Villas. The General Manager, Jason, and the whole team made our stay so memorable. With special thanks to the Executive Chef,... More

The boat journey to the hotel is a very relaxing one and beats BKK traffic anytime .. Upon arrival at the dock one arrives "in a different world" The attention to detail is simply outstanding only matched by the levels of service ... nothing is too much trouble ! We were here during the Thai Coup which is an interesting... More

We got married in this wonderful 5 star state-of-art hotel last weekend(June 7, 2014). We had the most wonderful experience. We stayed here before in our little stay-cation and fell in love with the place. We are really into Art Deco and antiques. If you like somewhere that is exclusive and private this is the place. There are so many... More

Catch the hotel's elegant varnished wood old-style shuttle boat from Central Pier for a relaxing 40-min ride up river to this fabulous hotel. Disembark and be ushered into the comfortable Chon Thai restaurant, designed as an East Asiatic Company-era colonial house - open on the ground (river!) level and air-conditioned upstairs. The menu is interestingly different from all other Thai... More
