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.

  • 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.
