If you’re seeking a stylish hotel which boasts character and charm then look no further than the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel. The hotel is located in the central hub of Bangkok city a stone throw from the action, shopping districts and BTS. You will be sure to receive a five star service from their accommodation options to recreational areas and dining. The Anantara Siam Hotel provides their guests with many added amenities that contribute in making your stay memorable, satisfying and relaxing.
We arrived at the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel after a 35-minute drive from the DMK airport to be greeted by the hotel staff and ushered into the lobby where we would check into our accommodation. My first impressions of the lobby area and the stunning décor were nothing but five star class. From entering the front doors the high ceilings and artwork captures your eye immediately. The hotels signature masterpiece lies on the landing between the bottom and first level and covers the length of the wall. This piece of art is so intricate and details that it tells a story.
Whilst checking in at the lobby we were informed of the new technology the hotel offered to all guests staying on the property. This included a top of the line mobile phone, however not like your standard phone. This device acted as your very own personal GPS, tour guide, recommendation database, online reservation provider and even offered you free international calls to selected countries (These included home for both of us Australia and America). This device could be used inside and outside of the hotel and I personally see this as an exceptional and outstanding touch the hotel offers to guests and a step ahead of other hotels as there is nothing worse than getting lost in a foreign country and not being sure what is on offer, especially for large cities such as Bangkok.
After checking into our Deluxe Room on the 6th floor, overlooking the pool we took some time to sit back and relax. Our room was impressive with a large bathroom (great bath and strong water pressured shower) and a living space that extended out from the bed to a seating area and desk working space. The room had a strong Wi-Fi connection and large flat screen television that showed many foreign programs from across the globe.
After relaxing we jumped up and headed to use the Fitness Centre facilities at the Anantara Siam Hotel. The gym is large and spacious with everything you will need including a separate squash court, boxing area and yoga studio from the weight and cardio room. It was excellent to see the staff genuinely interested in my training and assisting with a short session of pad for with the gloves. After walking out of the gym dripping with sweat I launched into the pool to cool off. The pool area is sensational with an abundance of lazy chairs and an area dedicated to children’s play equipment.
That evening we took a short stroll to the central plaza shopping center, which is about a 400m walk from the hotel and sits opposite another large shopping mall. These malls have everything and anything you may be in search of from top of the line brands to outlet stores. If the weather is not on your side the staff at the hotel will be more than happy to order you a taxi to where ever you wish to go. Important to note these taxis are all on the meter as well.
The following morning we awoke early from our comfortable sleep and headed down to the morning buffet served in one of the restaurants of the hotel. As we arrived the layout was something I personally really like – an open kitchen where you can see the chefs cooking your food fresh for you. We indulged in cuisine options from around the globe from eggs and bacon to dumplings and pork buns to cold meats and pastries. The food was delicious and the staff was sure to check our food options met and exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend the morning buffet!
After breakfast I took some time to adventure through the hotel and find what else was on offer (As Kelly was off being pampered at the Health Spa). With the assistance of some friendly staff I discovered the hotel offers a large business center with conference rooms, high tea in the lobby, has a pop up Cigar and Whiskey lounge and a bakery that sells absolutely spectacular food options. These are only a handful of the treats the Anantara Siam Bangkok Resort offers there are many more small stores selling all types of goods from crockery to book and food.
Once Kelly returned it was time to head down for our reservation for lunch at the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel’s very own Spice Market Restaurant. As we walked into the restaurant I was genuinely excited to eat here as it felt like I was eating in at a traditional Thai spice market with the props and old cane baskets. We ordered Tom Yum Koong, Cashew Chicken, Green Curry with Australian Beef Cheeks and Mango Stick Rice. The food was exceptional and left my taste buds watering especially the beef cheeks absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend this dish to anyone dining at the hotel. We spend the afternoon venturing around the hotel once again making the most of the Fitness Centre and large pool.
The following morning we made our way down to the buffet breakfast, which was held in a different location of the hotel next to the Aqua Bar that over looks their beautiful garden and pond in the center of the hotel. The food options were once again spectacular and after four plates I tapped out and retreated back to our room. As it was now time for us to check out we slowly packed our belongings, made our way down to reception where our taxi awaited us, said goodbye and were on our way.
