You can go to this hotel with eyes-closed! But I recommend to open them because it's a good place, the pool is beautiful, and the rooms are perfect. Furthermore people here are all very nice and kind.

We hosted a small international conference (20ish delegates from all over the globe) at the Anantara, and they did a really great job. The hotel is not in the veery centre of Bangkok and benefits from that by having a nice "Oasis" feel. The rooms are clean cool and well serviced and the staff are very helpful , friendly.. simply really nice! Regular (Free) boats can take you into Bangkok journey time of just under 20 mins so much nicer than taxis & Traffic. We tried most of the restaurants all were grea! if we had one wish it would be for a fine dining Thai style venue as well as the very varied choice already there. After a days work the Elephant bar was out standing. and for suites and other rooms there is a concierge lounge with, as expected, outstanding service and help if needed.we found very few faults/issues Maybe the pool needs a bit of refurbishment? very happy to return again given the opportunity Read less

This hotel is high quality with very friendly staff. It is on the river away from crowded town but the free water shuttle to the sky train provides easy access to all locations.
