Riva Surya is a former apartment building that’s been transformed into an elegant boutique hotel and still retains many colonial-era design features throughout. The hotel benefits from being centrally located in Bangkok’s Khaosan district and is right beside the Chao Phraya River. It offers comfortable accommodation in spacious rooms and is a peaceful, idyllic retreat in the centre of a vast, sprawling city. The hotel opened in 2012 and, unlike others in the area, it offers authentic charm and character.

All of the hotel’s 68 guest rooms are handsomely decorated, well furnished and smartly presented, with a good range of amenities provided. These include air conditioning, an LCD flat-screen TV, coffee and tea making facilities and complimentary toiletries, to name just a few. All of the rooms have private balconies, with some offering city views and some offering river views.

The hotel welcomes children of all ages, with cribs available for free and a babysitting service available for an extra charge. You can’t, however, have extra beds in any of the rooms. In addition to the main pool, the hotel has a separate smaller pool for children; when by either one of the pools parents should be sure to keep an eye on their children. Some of the rooms are interconnected - these are ideal for larger families travelling together.

As well as the two pools, Riva Surya has a well equipped fitness centre and a spa offering many enticing treatments, as well as a pleasant garden and terrace area. The restaurant, Babble & Rum, offers a range of delectable local and national dishes, along with some international fare. Those staying at the hotel are very well placed for exploring Bangkok - many of the city’s top cultural sites, including the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the Museum of Siam are a short walk away. Guests can discover the city’s many attractions at their own pace or can stop by the hotel’s tours desk to go on organised trips around the city.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
