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 great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
