Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas added Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel to its luxury portfolio. Located in Rajadamri in the city's Siam district, the hotel becomes the brand's flagship in its home market of Thailand.
Minor Hotel Group, the hotel's owning company, confirmed an investment of $20 million to enhance the hotel – formerly Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok – in the coming months. Areas to be refurbished will include some of the property's guestrooms and public areas, with details of the planned refurbishments currently being finalized.
Located in central Bangkok's Ratchaprasong district, opposite the Royal Bangkok Sports Club and right next to a sky train station, Anantara Siam Bangkok is within close proximity to the main business, nightlife and shopping districts, Lumphini Park and many of the city's cultural attractions. Suvarnabhumi International Airport is a 45 minute drive from the hotel, and Don Mueang International Airport just 25 minutes.
The property’s accommodations comprise 354 guestrooms and suites designed in traditional Thai and contemporary style, with authentic Thai artifacts, teak furnishings and silk fabrics, and with views overlooking tropical gardens, the pool, local neighborhood streets or the grounds of Royal Bangkok Sports Club.
Four guestroom types each offer 452 square feet of space, a marble bathroom with a tub and separate shower and in some cases a private entrance with white columns and Thai statues, as well as a dining patio amid landscaped gardens overlooking the pool and lotus ponds.
Six suite categories ranging from 775 square feet to 3,703 square feet offer a dressing room, massage suite, whirlpool, an office library and spaces to host private dinner parties.
Leisure facilities include an outdoor pool, which is surrounded by a sundeck, tropical garden scenery, a waterfall and lotus ponds. In addition, a 24-hour health club offers a gym and squash court, a studio for yoga, aerobics and spinning, plus a steam room and whirlpool.
For dining, the property has 10 options.
For events, available is a grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests; and the hotel's Wedding Galleria.
With the addition of Anantara Siam Bangkok, the brand now includes a total of 34 properties in 10 countries. Anantara has a pipeline of more than 10 future properties to be added.
