Our stay at Anantara Resort was too short! There are so many restaurants to choose from, awesome breakfast buffet, large and refreshing swimming pool, picture perfect spots in every corner, great amenities and overall worth every single penny spent!

Room Tip: A deluxe room with a river view would be best to book if you're a couple and a junior suite with...

Although not in city center, the hotel is only a 200 baht taxi ride away from Sathorn... Great service, nice room, friendly and quick service and good breakfast. Most taxi drivers knew the hotel, although some refused to take us because thy said it was too far... As a result, the only complaint is distance from where e hung out at night (Khao San, Sathorn, etc) and taxi drivers tried to overcharge because they knew our options were limited at 2-3am... Despite those minir irritations, i would definitely consider staying here again!

My husband and I have stayed at the Anantara (formerly the Marriott) many times over the past 15 years. I flew in From Canada and he from Koh Samui for a weekend in Bangkok. This hotel is our favourite in BKK, it has a wonderful resort feel, huge pool area and the staff is an example of wonderful Thai hospitality. The renovated rooms are elegant and very comfortable, an oasis after being downtown. The breakfast buffet is completely over the top....the baked goods are legendary.
When the door opens upon arrival and the young man says "welcome to the Anantara resort and Spa" I feel like I have arrived "home". There are many 5star hotels in Bangkok but The Anantara is something everyone must experience, we will be back!

Room Tip: The River View rooms offer the opportunity to enjoy the Activity on "the river of Kings"

Good points:
Hotel facilities: colonial style hotel with huge tropical garden, quite big swimming pool and nice pool surrounding area (pool bar, Jacuzzi).
Staff: very polite, really look after hotel guests.
Location: by the river opposite side to the main Bangkok activities but the hotel has its own boat crossing the river every 30 minutes from early in the morning until midnight. At night going back to the hotel by taxi will cost you not more than USD 10 for the ride.
Family friendly: perfect for a stay in Bangkok with children.

Neutral:
Food: breakfast choice is not breathtaking but it’s OK and offers enough choice to please Asians, Arabs or Westerners. Prices for food in hotel is a little bit expensive, compared to what you can find in the city (say double the price), but keep in mind you are in a five stars hotel so the food price goes with hotel standard.
Facilities: there is this fantastic tropical garden in the middle of the hotel so get ready to meet around the pool all kinds of insects, frogs, lizards,…

Can do better:
Room cleanliness: rooms are clean as long as you do not look under the bed or behind the furniture, then you will find the room very dusty. Staff need to be better trained or hotel needs to put more staff on this task (during our five days stay we saw always the same lady taking care of the housekeeping for the entire floor where our rooms were, while usually for such tasks in this type of hotel you would expect a team of 2 or 3).
Rooms: a little bit aged, especially the bathrooms, for which the hotel should definitely start a upgrading program to set them at current days’ standard
Restaurants: maybe due to the low season period, but hotel restaurants were most of the time empty

Room Tip: Great place for family and people looking for a relaxing place in Bangkok. For a romantic stay spend...

Room Tip: All rooms are good but for the best stay ask for a room facing the pool.

We got to Bangkok after Ao Nang and Singapore. We checked in quickly. We were originally given a basic kind of room and the air con was temperamental but we were upgraded to celebrate my 40th and my partners 50th birthdays! We came back from the city to a suite type room with balcony and a cake. The cake was absolutely delicious and a really sweet thing to do. This room was absolutely great, clean and spacious even though it was in the area which hadn't been renovated. There is a courtesy shuttle boat which takes you to either the night market or the main pier from where you can go by ferry to Wat Arun or further onwards. Breakfast was a buffet where there was lots of choice, good food and a nice restaurant. The pool and jacuzzi are great with lots of loungers and towels. There isn't much outside the hotel roadside. We stayed when it was Lay Krathong so we were able to be part of the celebratiosn which are truly magical.

Room Tip: Go for a river view if you can.
