In the spirit of Thailand’s upcoming New Year and favourite holiday season, Songkran, we thought it would be nice to offer Lifestyle Asia’s avid readers a chance to win a night’s stay at one of Bangkok’s most exquisite riverside luxury resorts, The Siam.

About The Siam

Located in Bangkok’s Royal Dusit District and occupying a deliciously green frontage along the Chao Phraya River, a stay at the The Siam is probably one of the most perfect ways to leave Bangkok, without really leaving it at all.

Breakfast on Chon lawn

Set amidst an oasis of calm and tranquil vibes, a verdant landscape and Art Deco inspired interiors, with Thai collectibles and turn of the century antiquities peppering the property, the 39-suite-and-villa urban luxury resort is a masterpiece in itself.

The Siam’s Opium Spa

Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Bill Bensley, and probably one of the first properties to emit his signature style, you’re made to feel as if you’re in another, quieter world, either lounging around in your Riverview Suite, or exploring every corner and crevice of the artsy hotel.

The bar at The Siam

We enjoyed sifting through the The Siam’s incredibly extensive old records collection – think John Coltrane, Elton John, Louis Armstrong and even The Godfather soundtrack – as well as playing the antique Hornung & Møller antique piano, sipping tea and reading in the very English garden, and even more sweetly, watching boats go by along The Chao Phraya while casually floating in the riverfront infinity pool.

The special thing about The Siam is that it offers refined experiences completely different to the cookie-cut ones you’d have at other luxury hotels. Guests have access to many restaurants, as well as a cooking school, bar, cafe and state-of-the-art spa.

Wellness at The Siam

Guests can also book themselves an appointment at the hotel’s beauty salon, or the Sak Yant tattoo studio – and immportalise their stay with a sacred tattoo by Ajarn Boo –  or have a Muay Thai boxing session, in the ring at the gymnasium. There’s also a library, screening room, vinyl room – as we mentioned previously – and a conservatory.

All these incredibly unique experiences make you feel as if you’re not in Bangkok, even when you never really left. And for all the time-short Bangkokians trying to incorporate well-deserved breaks into their busy work life, such a stay is probably one of the best things you could do.

The Siam’s Beauty Salon

From Central Sathorn pier, the hotel’s private shuttle can have you at the hotel within 25 minutes and a short drive from your central Bangkok apartment will have you there in the same amount of time. Beats driving two hours outside of Bangkok, don’t you think?
