Ariyasom Villa is a charming and unassuming boutique hotel located right beside the Wat Sri Bunruang canal in Thailand’s capital, Bangkok. This pretty property is set in a characterful and historic 1940’s house although it offers plenty of modern-day creature comforts and conveniences. One of the most appealing things about the hotel is its central location; the Ploen Chit BTS Skytrain Station is a short walk away and offers easy access to many of the city’s top sights. In pleasant contrast to the sometimes frenetic and chaotic character of Bangkok, the villa has a quiet and laid-back feel.

The accommodation comprises 24 handsomely furnished rooms and suites spread across four floors. Each room is decorated in traditional Thai style and features original artworks, reproduction and original antiques, period furniture, silk curtains and wooden floors. All rooms are air conditioned and come with a 32 inch LCD TV with a range of cable channels.

When not exploring the vibrant city of Bangkok, it’s a pleasure to make use of the hotel’s attractive outdoor swimming pool, unwind with a good book in the library or book an indulgent treatment at the Som Sen Spa. Yoga and meditation sessions are also available, with complete beginners just as welcome as more seasoned practitioners. The hotel’s restaurant, Na Aroon, is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a range of Thai and western cuisine. Specialising purely in vegetarian food, meat isn’t on the menu, so while the food is really delicious, some guests may prefer to dine elsewhere.

Children of all ages are welcome and a babysitting service is available. Children under the age of 12 stay for free and although only one extra bed or one baby cot per room is allowed, interconnecting rooms can be booked to make life easier. Note that cots can be hired for free, though there’s an extra charge to hire an additional bed.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)

    The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.

    Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!

    Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good

    Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.

    Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.

    Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
