Bangkok’s Siam Set for Fall Opening

siam

Make way for Bangkok's newest luxury property—The Siam. Privately owned and managed by Siam Hotels and Resorts, The Siam is a 2.8-acre, 39-key retreat nestled among Bangkok’s historic palaces, temples and museums in the royal Dusit district, The Siam is a 45-minute ride from Suvarnabhumi airport, 20 minutes to the city’s main shopping artery at Siam Paragon, and a 15-minute boat ride to the nearest BTS sky train station at Taksin Bridge.
 
The Siam is conceived by owner and Thai celebrity, Krissada Sukosol Clapp, together with globally acclaimed architect, interior and landscape designer Bill Bensley. The architecture of the Main Residence draws inspiration from Paris’ Musée d’Orsay through its white wood and glass façade, which provides plenty of natural light and ventilation. The overall setting reflects the time of Bangkok’s greatest grandeur under King Rama V, progressing into the prolific Art Deco era.
 
Guests can choose to stay in one of 16 Siam (standard) or 12 Mae Nam (river view) Suites in the Main Residence or in one of 10 Private Pool Villas with a Thai, Chinese or Colonial ambience. For a unique experience, guests can dine or stay in one of four traditional, Thai teakwood houses.
 
The Siam facilities include a pa and hammam; a period style library; a screening room; a meeting room; a spacious gym with retro décor; an outdoor yoga sala; an art gallery under a 14-meter-high glass arcade; a riverside infinity swimming pool with jacuzzi beds and poolside bar; and an authentic Thai restaurant with cooking school.
