Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok 

Luxe in the city

An elegant hotel by the Chao Phraya River with stellar service and easy access to Bangkok’s Skytrain.

This stunning riverside hotel executes Thai hospitality in the most lavish way. It’s in the heart of bustling Bangkok, minutes from a Skytrain station for easy access. Most travellers choose this hotel for its grandeur – it’s one of the finest riverside hotels in the city and oozes charisma. There are two pools that look out to the Chao Phraya River where you can cool off and relax on a sun lounger, a perfectly judged selection of venues for a meal or drink, and an award-winning CHI, The Spa with a menu of healing therapies.
