Location wise the hotel is quite central with Rajadamri BTS station a mere 3 mins walk away while Siam Shopping district is just 1 station away from the hotel. The renowned Erawan Shrine is also just 5 mins walk away from the hotel making the hotel an ideal base to explore Bangkok.
Upon arriving, we were greeted by friendly bell boys, taking care of our belongings while the other one guide us to the reception. The first thing welcoming us is the amazing floral arrangement curated by Anantara Siam’s florists and the design changes every month.
Regardless how many stay, the opulent grand lobby remains spectacularly impressive, infusing distinctive traditional Thai architecture into a contemporary and luxurious design.
Looking up the ceiling are the 19 major sections of hand painted silk mandalas, each with an individualized design and colour concept inspired by Buddhist symbols, Sung dynasty floral patterns & Thai mythological and astrological animals.
The grand staircase is the epicenter of the hotel with its awe-inspiring mural. The theme of the mural is The Coronation of a King, depicting the ascent of the Chakri Dynasty to the throne of Thailand with hundreds of richly costumed figures, lively animals, trees and flowers, painted in the early Rattanakosin style.
Since our booking includes exclusive Kesara Lounge benefits, the receptionist took us to the newly renovated lounge for private check in.

During our stay, we managed to try Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel’s signature afternoon tea that starts from 2pm to 6pm daily. On weekends, special treats for afternoon tea lovers as the hotel offers afternoon tea buffets.
A selections of Mariage Frères gourmet tea from France is served. Only 2 hotels in Bangkok serves Mariage Frères tea.
Anantara Siam Bangkok hotel even had Mariage Frères custom mix 3 blends of tea that are only available at the hotel – Elephant Blanc (legendary fruity & floral black tea), Lune Rouge (mild green tea with rose & ginger) & Temple De L’aure (Flowery soft citrus green tea)
One of the best afternoon tea in town, we particularly love the cheese cake, pastries, scones & the delicate sandwiches that pairs well with the heavenly Mariage Frères gourmet tea and surrounded by the relaxing yet luxurious atmosphere.
Nothing beats a pampering spa especially holidaying in Thailand. The newly renovated ultra modern with traditional thai elements Anantara Spa features lavish spa suite that comes with a private Roman style tub and steam room with wide array of heavenly massage selections.
We arrived 15 mins before our appointment schedule, given a warm ginger tea to cool down and were recommended to try Anantara’s Signature Spa, a 90 mins of pure indulgence massage that combines revered eastern and western techniques in purpose designed movements incorporating their signature oil blend.
The massage focuses on stimulating blood circulation and deeply relaxes muscles while the reflexology clears blockages of energy and promotes overall wellbeing.
Our room comes with Kesara Lounge exclusive benefits which includes: Express check-in and check-out at the Kasara Lounge, Daily buffet breakfast at the Kasara Lounge or Madison Restaurant, Evening cocktails & Canapés in the evening from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm, All day snacks and refreshments, Complimentary use of one of our three private meeting rooms for one hour per stay, 24 hour use of business centre facilities & In-room premium internet access.
It is always worth to upgrade to Rooms with Kesara Lounge access as the value of benefits received is much more higher than the money paid.
The fitness center at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is fully equipped with state of the arts cardio machines & muscle building equipment. There is also a dedicated studio for aerobic workout & yoga.
After a decent workout, guests can enjoy the whirlpool Jacuzzi or Steambath available in the Health Club. It is complimentary for hotel guests.
Another interesting features in Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is the place of breakfast. The hotel determines the breakfast dining area by occupancy rates so there are chances you will enjoy breakfast in either Madison or Biscotti Restaurant.
During this stay, our breakfast is at Madison & Aqua Lounge, definitely it is more relaxing to dine in Aqua lounge beside the Koi pond. We would think it is the best slot however you will need to wake up early as the place beside the pond is usually on waiting list.
But if you do not wish to sweat at outdoor, the indoor Madison will be a better choice.
Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel offers a great buffet breakfast spread with a variety of Western & Oriental hot & cold dishes offered from European bread & pastries to European cheese to premium cold cuts to hot piping Thai noodles.
Our stay at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel was nothing sort of splendid, we even noticed many millennials are staying at this hotel. There are many 5 star hotels around, yet this is the one we can call as home, a hotel we dont mind staying again & again.
