We returned to the Anantara Riverside after over a year.
Because we had an amazing time there in May2012, where we celebrated my husband's birthday, we wanted to go back there again, to celebrate my birthday!
It felt as if we went back home. It's an oasis not far from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok which is within easy reach too. The hotel offers a complimentary ferry ride between the hotel and Saphan Taksim BTS station as well as to Asiatique on the opposite side of the river. On arrival at the hotel we were so warmly welcomed.
The breakfast buffet was a feast!!. Did not know what not to eat - there was just so much to choose from! One needs to go early to breakfast to do it justice :-)
On the up side, I celebrated my birthday there in December and was sent up a beautiful cake surrounded by macaroons just before we checked out.
On the downside my husband had to remind them of the special occasion on the day and was told that they had not forgotten and would do something special - nothing happened for the entire day and he had reminded them twice until he went down to reception to find out - they had forgotten. But made up for it late that evening just before we were ready to check out.
As our flight out of Bangkok was a very late night departure, we paid for that night even though we did not spend the entire night there. As luck would have it, our flight was over-booked and we were unable to travel. We returned to the hotel and were given the key to our room!
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in a resort setting and yet enjoy city life as well.

Room Tip: Deluxe premier pool-facing room.

Beautiful grounds, quiet, clean, comfortable and spacious rooms (premium); quality and extensive breakfast buffet; large and attractively lanscaped tropical pool; extensive and diverse facitities and eateries. I think its the landscaped grounds which set this place so above other five star locations in Bangkok. So gentle and lush, in contrast to the flash mausoleums that many other five star hotels are.

But above all it is the staff which excel. All so calmly professional and engaging. Whether gardeners, waiters, cooking, reception, bar, gym or other staff. Each as friendly and professional. Well done, and thanks for such a memeorable time at Anantara

The only irritation I experienced was the extremely high charge for laundry.

Last time I was here the hotel was a Marriott, but it didn't change much. I love its location, the choice of restaurants, the luscious vegetation around the swimming pool area, the modern fitness center. After some problem I had with one of my belongings going missing, the hotel management acted quickly to solve the problem. Customer care at its best. I love this place.

Room Tip: Try to get a riverview room, they will try to accommodate the request if possible.

We stayed here as a family of four and the staff accommodated us beautifully. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The breakfast buffet was extensive and excellent quality, the tropical pool was gorgeous, and the location, off the beaten path, was a great antidote to Bangkok proper. It is a short boat ride to the Asiantique night market across the river, and taking a long boat or the public taxis from the Anantara dock was great way to go. We would stay here again in a heart-beat.

Outstanding breakfast selection with top quality food after traveling for 22 hours on a plane, this was a great way to start our first day in Thailand.
The hotel was excellent.... It was like being in a bubble out of the busy Bangkok city. The river tour from the resort was a great way to see the area.
