A trip to the exotic far east! When you arrive in the courtyard of this quaint quiet oasis of a hotel, expanded around a 1940s Thai villa, you know you have started on an adventure. Even mine host falls into the stuff of fiction, an escapee more than 20 years ago from colder English climes.
The property is intriguing, you round corners to discover old wall murals from a bygone era, and all furnishings are period pieces, but the bathroom facilities are thoroughly modern behind their old world appearance.
We had a huge space, sitting room with TV for comfortable lounging around and connecting passages with storage cupboards led past a large bathroom with full bath tub, shower etc and onto a bedroom with a huge 4 poster bed, comfortable chair and writing desk. The balcony overlooked the hotel pool and over the wall we could see the boats going up and down the river canal. It was our honeymoon and the giant heart of red roses on the bed and flowers everywhere were a beautiful welcome.
Whatever you do don't miss a meal at the restaurant. They specialise in delicious organic, fresh vegetarian and seafood meals. David has a gift for tackling Thai cuisine with an individual touch and the meals were served quickly with warm smiles.
The location is excellent if you want to tackle what Bangkok offers for shoppers and custom tailoring.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ariyasomvilla Boutique Hotel is a very unique property in the centre of Bangkok. The original house was built by the current Owners Grandparents in 1942. Unlike other hotels Ariyasomvilla gives you a real sense of place and time but with all modern facilities you would expect from 5 star hotels. With 24 rooms Ariyasomvilla is very private and feels like a sanctuary. The pool is large enough for lap, while the spa offers excellent massage. ... more less
