Featuring Bangkok's only private pool villas, The Siam offers large, opulent suites reminiscent of an elegant by-gone era.
Part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, The Siam was conceived by owner and Thai celebrity, Krissada Sukosol Clapp, and designed by globally acclaimed architect, interior and landscape designer Bill Bensley, one of Architectural Digest's Top 100 Designers and Most Creative People.
The Main Residence draws inspiration from Paris' Musée d'Orsay through its white wood and glass façade, providing plenty of natural light and ventilation. The overall setting reflects the time of Bangkok's greatest grandeur under King Rama V, progressing into the prolific Art Deco era.
Each suite and villa is attended to by a personal butler and complimentary Wifi is available property-wide.
Located directly on the riverfront of the River of Kings, the iconic Chao Phraya River, The Siam occupies 3 acres of prime river frontage in one of the most historic areas of Bangkok, Dusit.
If you can tear yourself away from the luxurious trappings and various cultural offerings at The Siam, you will find that you are within five minutes of the Royal Elephant Museum, Chitlada Palace, the Teak Palace and only 15 minutes from The Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha and Wat Po, home of the famous reclining Buddha.
If you want to explore the rest of Bangkok and maybe do a little shopping, Silom Road, Siam Paragon, BTS Skytrain and Chatuchak weekend markets are all just 20 minutes away.
Suvarnabhumi International Airport is 45 minutes away.
The Siam offers six room types including three categories of pool villas, the only private pool villas in Bangkok. All rooms are spacious, starting at 80 square meters and feature super sized king beds, lofty ceilings and decadent baths. Each suite is individually designed and decorated with genuine antiques and artwork from the owner's private collection.
The Siam, Mae Nam and River View Suites are located in the Main Residence affording easy access to the spa, gym and library.
Even the smallest rooms, the 16 Siam Suites are generous in size, at 80 square meters.
One step up are the six Mae Nam Suites at 90 square meters and the six River View Suites at 100 square meters. Both the Mae Nam and River View Suites offer views of the river and are spacious enough for families.
The Siam is a true pioneer in Bangkok, bringing real private pool villas to the capital. Choose from three types of pool villas with a Thai, Chinese or Colonial ambience. Each of the villas offer great privacy with lush internal gardens and private swimming pool in a private terrace with an open-air roof. Starting at 130 square meters, the Chinese themed Pool Villa Courtyard can be seen in the pictures to the right and at the top of this page.
