Overview

Named for its scenic location on the banks of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River, the luxurious Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort is set in nearly a dozen acres of gorgeous tropical gardens. It’s designed to be a place of serenity and relaxation, where guests can unwind and take things slowly after a long day exploring the many fascinating sights and attractions of Bangkok.

This high-end resort has a total of 306 rooms, each one of which is decorated in classy Thai style. Most of the rooms are located in three buildings spread across the resort’s beautifully tended grounds; floor-to-ceiling windows not only let in a lot of natural light to make the rooms bright and airy, they also offer stunning views of the resort’s gardens, the Chao Phraya River or the bustling streets of Bangkok. Amenities include air conditioning, an LCD TV with DVD player, a minibar and coffee and tea making facilities - each room also comes with a complimentary smartphone that can be used on the resort and when out and about; guests are free to use this for unlimited internet, texts and calls. Two extra rooms can be found on the Anantara Dream, a rice barge over 100 years old that offers private full-service river cruises. These special cruise experiences last three days, with guests spending two nights onboard the barge.

The facilities are superb and include one of the largest outdoor pools in Bangkok, along with a children’s pool and a hot tub. There are also two tennis courts, a fitness centre, a free kids club and even a rooftop hydroponic farm. Cooking lessons and city tours led by expert guides are also available.

There’s a huge range of dining choices at the Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort. The Riverside Terrace, a buffet-style restaurant serving international cuisine - is just one example of the many superb riverside dining options on offer. There’s a broad range of cuisine to enjoy from Japanese Teppanyaki at Benihana, to delicious Italian fare at Brio, or dishes from the Pacific Rim at Trader Vic’s. Other dining options include a lavish breakfast buffet, several bars, a coffee shop selling hot drinks and light snacks and Dining by Design, a special dining experience just for two where couples can enjoy privacy and intimacy as they dine on cuisine of their choice.

Children of all ages are welcome at the resort, with ‘Family Suites’ tailored specifically to family requirements. There’s a kids club and the designated children’s pool, as well as a babysitting service.

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.
