I have been waiting for two plus years for The Siam to open, ever since I met the wonderful family who envisioned this stylish and ambitious project. And, finally, The Siam has arrived in Bangkok. So beautiful. So peaceful. So inspiring.
Set on 3 acres of verdant frontage along the city side of the Chao Praya 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 will be 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.
Every once in a rare while, something special like The Siam comes along. It is not often and, when a hotel of such perfection comes on the scene, it is worth traveling to the destination to see it and experience it first hand.
AmanResort’s properties were notorious in sparking this impulse.
The Siam is our new love. It joins a rarified world of elegance and soul.
