Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa completes $11M facelift

Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa completed a $11-million refurbishment. The renovations comprised upgraded accommodation and design uplifts of two riverside restaurants.

The resort offers 408 refurbished rooms, including 101 suites, each designed in Thai style with river or garden views, admired through floor-to-ceiling windows from inside or outside on private balconies.

Earlier, in 2012, 40 percent of the resort's accommodation, consisting of 169 rooms and suites, was refurbished with a $9.7-million investment. More recently, a further $9.7 million was spent on refurbishing the remainder of the accommodation, including brand new two bedroom suites, which offer accommodation for families and friends traveling together.

Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa's dining venues also benefited from the makeover. Providing guests with waterfront dining locations beside the River of Kings, The Market and Riverside Terrace restaurants were transformed after an investment of $1.3 million. The redesigns of these two restaurants complement one another. The Market received an uplift with Thai décor, including a dining room with windows revealing views of the tropical grounds and river beyond, or outside on the terrace. In contrast, Riverside Terrace was redesigned to offer an open air setting, complete with live cooking stations.

Anantara currently has over 30 properties located in Thailand, the Maldives, Bali, Vietnam, China, Cambodia, Mozambique and the United Arab Emirates; with future properties to open in China, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Laos, Qatar and Oman.
