We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon on 22nd December and were upgraded from a Deluxe room to the Suite! I'm sure the Deluxe room would have been absolutely lovely (as the whole hotel looks amazing), but the suite was just so wonderful, and that was a really lovely gesture from this gem of a hotel.
The four poster bed was amazing, as were the floral painted double sinks, and the roll top bath (with countless rose heads floating in water!), and the rose petals in a heart on our bed, lots of luxurious sofas and cushions as well, and tasty fresh exotic fruit waiting for us in our room (different varieties to what we had had elsewhere, and fresher). We had never stayed anywhere like it before and I don't think we will ever stay somewhere so lovely ever again.
We had stayed in a very crisp modern hotel for the first night of our honeymoon, also in Bangkok, so it was great to spend our last night somewhere much more traditional and serene. The antique furnishings and chandeliers are beautiful without being over the top. The service was faultless - a perfect balance of personal and professional. The owner came out in the evening and at breakfast to greet us and the other guests, which was also another lovely touch.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was the best we had had during our honeymoon (and we had had a lot of great food!). They don't serve meat which we had not been aware of, so we were initially concerned, but we were wrong to be. They do serve fish and my husband had a great fish dish and I went for a great vegetarian massaman curry and I was just so sorry that my eyes were bigger than my stomach! Breakfast was amazing, next to the lush chilled-out pool area, and you could barely tell it was all vegetarian. Our juice, fruit and toast seemed to be constantly replenished and we really did not want to leave!
This place is well worth the slight difficulty the taxi driver might have finding it (the hotel will email you directions in Thai for the taxi driver) and it is such a haven from the hustle and bustle right outside.
- 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
