I am nearing the end of a 14 day quarantine stay at the hotel. It has been absolutely tremendous. The room is huge, with a good sized balcony where I eat my meals. There is a large desk in the room, which has enabled me to work throughout my stay. Each day you order your food for the next day. There is a huge selection and it changes each day. The quality of food is excellent. The nurse service is very personable and extremely well organised. After the first negative covid test, you are allowed into the Grounds for an hour's walk each day, which is something to look forward to. I wasn't really looking forward to being stuck in quarantine, but I am surprised at how quickly the time has flown. I would really recommend staying at this hotel. They have thought carefully about their guests' experience and done everything to make it as pleasurable as possible. Read less

The hotel looks dated and needs renovation. The swimming pool area is not child friendly at all.It has too many dangers to the little ones. It also needs better understanding of challenges faced during ASQ.

I just had a wonderful ASQ stay and Anantara Riverside Resort and highly recommend the beautiful resort for everyone. First I'd like to mention the staff that definitely went above and beyond to make sure you're happy and have everything you need. I did my homework on ASQ's and read many good reviews on this lovely resort but it was the positive reviews on the food and comfort that sold me and it all turned out true. Also, For being located in downtown Bangkok this resort has a large tropical garden and river/pool views that makes it very nice when you're relaxing or working off your balcony. Thank you to everyone and especially for the superb farewell dinner from the chefs and kitchen staff. You all really made me happy, Take care Read less

Excellent location, near to riverside. Great quality and choice of menu despite staying in ASQ. Overall a satisfying stay given the limited opportunities to enjoy the overall facilities of the resort.
