These six luxury properties on the banks of the Chao Phraya are luring visitors back with perks like free nights.
Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort
Through the Stay Longer special, Anantara guests bedding down at least three nights will receive up to 25 percent off best available rates, on top of daily breakfast and a 10 percent discount on selected spa treatments. Booking direct unlocks a dining and spa credit of THB 500 (about US$15) for a room and THB 1,000 (US$30) for an Anantara River Front or Two Bedroom River View Chao Phraya suite, valid for stays until December 31, 2023. Those checked in to a Junior River View, Anantara River Front, or two-bedroom suite anytime until March 31 will also get a free 20-minute doctor’s consultation on preventive medicine at the hotel’s BDMS Wellness clinic.
Applicable to stays of up to six nights until June 30, 2023, Capella Bangkok’s Travel Reset offer matches two-night bookings at best available rates in any room category with a complimentary third night. Other entitlements include daily breakfast for two, a bottle of house champagne, and flexible check-in and checkout times, not to mention all non-alcoholic items in the minibar (refilled daily). Guests who splurge on one of the property’s six riverfront villas will enjoy additional benefits like a round-trip limousine transfer from any Bangkok address; a 30-minute massage on arrival; and the services of a Capella Culturist, or personal concierge.
Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River
Apart from daily breakfast and one round-trip transfer between the airport and the hotel, the Four Seasons’ Unlock Bangkok’s Heart special promises a raft of activities both on- and offsite. A particular highlight is an eight-hour day trip to Ayutthaya’s UNESCO-listed archaeological park, with private transportation, an English-speaking guide, admission fees, and a local Thai lunch all pre-arranged.
Meanwhile, a set of customizable two-hour excursions help visitors get under the skin of the Thai capital: couples will be taken on an eye-opening exploration of the Creative District on foot, a guided street food tour in Chinatown, and a long-tail boat ride on the Chao Phraya River and nearby canals. An afternoon tea experience is also part of the package, alongside an hourlong Muay Thai training session and a 60-minute massage at the in-house Urban Wellness Centre. Reservations for the package must be made at least five days in advance.
Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
A fixture of the local hospitality scene since 1876 — when it debuted as the first luxury hotel in Thailand under its former name The Oriental — Bangkok’s grande dame is offering guests a free third night through September. Extra benefits from breakfast to resort credit and early check-in are available for Fans of M.O. members. Travelers planning to stay at least two nights between early November and December 20 can take advantage of the Luxury Breaks offer, which guarantees a daily credit of THB 2,000 (US$59) per night for room bookings and THB 4,000 (US$118) per night for suite bookings.
