Away from the hurly burly of Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok, there is a new option for those wishing to enjoy all the city has to offer, but at a convenient arms’ length. Many readers will also be familiar with the plush Anantara Riverside on the western bank of the Bangkok River, just north of the Bangkok Bridge.
Now, right in the backyard, is the all-new Avani Riverside offering a more conventional luxury hotel stay.
This new property is designed as a showcase hotel for the Avani brand and is the first new build for the company. Even though rated at 4–4.5 stars, there are plenty of 5-star features like the amazing 26th floor rooftop bar, Attitude, and restaurant, Skyline, in the lobby on the 11th floor. The comprehensive gym and spa are on the 25th floor. Up-to-date conference and event facilities are plentiful and versatile and ready to cater for anything from small meetings to weddings. The lobby is cavernous and brightly lit with natural light from panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s a super bar and space for informal meetings, if you can keep your gaze away from the view.
In short, this is a sparkling and funky new hotel with bright, youthful flair located to take great advantage of the views and still be accessible to all the action downtown.
