Minor said the rebranding of the hotel marks the culmination of a life-long dream of the company’s chairman William E. Heinecke, to operate a flagship Anantara property in the centre of the Thai capital.
“Owning this prestigious hotel in the heart of Bangkok and working with the fantastic team during its time as Four Seasons Bangkok has been an amazing journey. I am looking forward to continuing the journey in the next stage of this property’s life as Anantara Siam,” Heinecke said.
Built in 1978, the property launched as a Peninsula before being sold to Regent Hotels in 1982. Four Seasons assumed management of the property following its acquisition of Regent in 1992. Minor then acquired the hotel, named the Regent Bangkok, in 2001, and it has been operating as a Four Seasons since 2003.
Now rebranded, Anantara Siam Bangkok becomes the brand’s fourth hotel in the Thai capital following the Anantara Baan Rajprasong, Anantara Bangkok Riverside and Anantara Bangkok Sathorn.
Boasting one of the Thai capital’s most prestigious addresses, Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel offers a sophisticated retreat for guests who appreciate life’s finer pleasures and the intrigue of original experiences.
Redefining luxury, traditional Thai architecture and glorious gardens exude elegant simplicity and create a sense of serene exclusivity that feels far removed from the bustling city, matched by the convenience of being well connected to everything Bangkok has to offer.
Strategically located in the heart of 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 key cultural attractions, providing the ideal base for the business or leisure traveller.
Luxury accommodation comprises 354 rooms and suites designed in traditional Thai and contemporary style with authentic Thai artifacts, teak furnishings and silk fabrics, overlooking tropical gardens, the pool, prestigious neighbourhood streets or the Royal Bangkok Sports Club.
Four room types each offer 42 square metres of beautifully appointed space, a marble bathroom with a deep tub and separate shower, and some also a private entrance graced with white columns and Thai statues, as well as a dining patio amidst landscaped gardens overlooking the pool and an exotic lotus pond.
Six suite categories ranging from 72 to 344 square metres offer unique indulgences, such as a dressing room, massage suite, whirlpool, an office library and elegant spaces to host private dinner parties. Kasara Lounge guests receive a range of exclusive leisure and business privileges, including an express check-in and check-out at the Kasara Lounge, all day snacks and refreshments, and use of a private meeting room.
Impressive leisure facilities tempt guests to swim at the outdoor pool and sunbathe on the sundeck surrounded by tropical garden scenery, a waterfall and lotus ponds. Those with energy or city stress to burn can work-out at the 24 hour health club’s gym and squash court, or in the yoga, aerobics and spinning studio, then relax afterwards in the steam room and whirlpool. For the ultimate in pampering indulgence, award winning Anantara Spa journeys offer Thailand’s exotic wellness traditions, trusted ancient therapies from across Asia and advanced western spa wisdom.
The hotel’s highly acclaimed culinary experiences offer some of the city’s very best dining. 10 dining options include award winning restaurants, the much raved about Sunday Brunch, specialty Japanese, Thai and Italian restaurants serving authentic flavours in atmospheric settings, as well as refreshments under the lobby’s magnificent frescoed ceiling, and leisurely wine and charcuterie evenings.
Family friendly services keep youngsters entertained and give parents a stress free stay. Little ones enjoy a welcome amenity, their own bathrobes, toiletries and bedtime treats, as well as children's menus at every hotel restaurant. While the concierge can be called upon to arrange action packed days out, book a babysitter or a special family dinner.
