Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel

Bangkok, Thailand

The hotel

They say Wat Arun is the best place to see the sunset in Bangkok – but it has a rival in Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel. Up on the rooftop of this central urban retreat, just moments from Riverside Plaza, the infinity pool appears to teeter over the vast Chao Phraya River, letting you gaze out over life on the river in the daytime, and watch the bright lights of Bangkok glittering as night draws in. You can also catch those skyline views from your guestroom, as you dine on Pacific Rim cuisine at Trader Vic’s, and from the roof-capping SEEN Restaurant & Bar, where the al fresco dining deck is scattered with nightlights and lanterns.

Last year I purchased a Destination Club package with two vouchers for overnight stays at the Riverside complex. Pre-CoVID I spent one night at the Anantara Riverside. It was delightful. Big rooms, open walkways, lush gardens right on the Chao Praya River. I was looking forward to returning. Fast forward 8 months, in the midst of CoVID and the Anantara is a quarantine hotel and not open to the public. My voucher was about to expire so I booked at the Avani+ Riverside. And it did not turn out well. The Avani is a 25-story contemporary hotel. But the experience is no where near a 5 star level and doesn't compare to the sister hotel, Anantara, for atmosphere. Rooms are small and noisy. Several times during the stay I heard guests and staff from other rooms and the hallway. The view is indeed beautiful but being in a hermetically sealed room is not that nice. There is no sense of being on the river. The attached photo shows the minibar offering. Though the menu showed about 6 items for sale, only 1 package of Pringles was available! Comfy bed as you would expect but the duvet was so heavy and hot that it was hard to get comfortable. Turn the AC down to 21'C to compensate and then freeze whenever you leave the bed... Not nice. The final disappointment ... the pool. It's a very nice infinity pool on the 26th floor with a stunning view. But.... it doesn't open until 9 am. And since breakfast ends at 10:30 am, you have to chose whether you want to swim or eat. You can't do both! Is this an intentional scheduling or just stupid? If you do plan to stay at Avani+ Riverside, lower your expectations. Read less

The hotel is beautiful, with a stupendous view. The staff went out of their way to make my trip a memorable one, for which I will remain eternally grateful. I had booked the wrong suite (one-bedroom river view suite) instead of the river view junior suite). When I confessed my mistake to reception, Pookie went out of her way to speak to her manager to have me change to the room I wanted at no extra charge. They got the room ready in no time and I was soaking in the tub before you can say "solo staycation". I wanted a room with a view, a bathtub, a comfy bed and no noise - and that's what I got. This was a solo staycation for me - a time I needed to unwind, stay in a room and not worry about anything. Brought a bottle of Prosecco, rang downstairs for a glass, and had the time of my life sipping Prosecco and watching The Rock save Hong Kong in Skyscraper. A girl needs nothing else, I promise! Having Avani+ above the Riverside Plaza also helps as there are restaurants where you can access food easily if you don't wanna eat at the hotel. The room was clean, gorgeous (I can't say this enough!), the pillow options were perfect and the bed was the sort that you sink into but not too much. I had a gorgeous night's sleep and opened my eyes to a view of the river and blue skies. Such bliss! Highly recommended. Money well spent and absolutely can't wait to visit again. Read less

Everything was excellent. Obviously a perfect location with fantastic views. My room was beautiful with an incredible view of the Chao Phraya river, incredible rain shower and generally very good amenities. The staff here were the best thing about my stay, very helpful, friendly and professional. Highly recommend a stay at this hotel.

Second part of our journey, having travelled from Maldives to Bangkok, we first stayed at the Avani by the river. Very chilled out place, great rooftop bar and nice to have a mall just below for shopping and lots of food to choose from. Bangkok is a great place and the stay at the Avani was super.
