Set on 3 acres of verdant frontage along the Chao Phraya River, The Siam is a private 39-room luxury retreat located in Bangkok’s royal Dusit district.
Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Bill Bensley, the Art Deco inspired, Thai antique infused masterpiece is the Kingdom’s premier urban resort.
Guests have an array of superlative amenities at their fingertips: restaurants, cooking school, bar, café, spa, gym yoga terrace, Muay Thai boxing ring, beauty salon, library, cinema, infinity pool, gift & antiques gallery, conservatory and traditional Thai houses.
The Siam was conceived by Krissada Sukosol Clapp, together with globally acclaimed architect Bill Bensley.
When Krissada inherited a piece of prime riverside land, he instantly wanted to build a hotel there to house his collection of antiques.
Knowing the property had to stand out, he brought Bill Bensley on board. T
he stunning design reflects the period of Bangkok’s greatest grandeur, under King Rama V, circa 1853-1910, with Art Deco accents. A muted colour scheme of black, white, cream, grey and neutrals has been combined with natural textures such as wood, weave, leather and stone, not to mention sprawling gardens and verdant shrubs throughout.
The individually designed suites at the Siam are amongst the largest in city, all outfitted with plush furnishings and lofty ceilings.
Besides 28 suites, The Siam features 10 intimately private pool villas which bask in either Thai, Chinese or Colonial surrounds.
Every villa is awash with lush internal gardens and represents an oasis within a sanctuary, with a private swimming pool and open-air roof terrace. Inside, these villas feature art-deco inspired bedrooms most amazing bathrooms.
The property’s most unique and expensive accommodation is Connie’s Cottage, a century-old traditional Thai teak house chosen by American Silk tycoon, Jim Thompson for his best friend, Connie Mangskau that has been transformed into a rustic pool cottage.
Even though The Siam is located right in the city, it is a tranquil retreat that feels miles away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
The Siam is a stunning urban oasis, offering a tranquil riverside location, an incredible design, beautiful rooms & suites, and world-class amenities.
The Siam is the most expensive hotel in Bangkok, and is in a league of its own when it comes to exclusivity.
