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 both look out to the Chao Phraya River where you can cool off and relax on a sun lounger. The best way to take in the twinkling lights of the city is on a Horizon Cruise, where you can enjoy a scenic few hours on board a swish boat with a delicious buffet dinner of Thai and western food. Enjoy Thai food in the traditional way at Salathip, where local cuisine is accompanied by classic Thai dance performances in a traditional teak pavilion. The NEXT2 Café is another great spot for all-day dining on the terrace. As with all Shangri-La properties, there’s an award-winning CHI, The Spa with luxurious private spa suites and a menu of healing therapies like the Signature Bangkok Facial.

The rooms reflect the classic Thai-style with a modern twist, evident throughout the hotel. Decorated with silk and teak, you’re assured an indulgent and comfortable night’s sleep.
