10 Most Romantic Bangkok Hotels to Pamper Yourself In

Bangkok has one of the greatest collections of romantic hotels to grace all of Asia. You can take your pick between riverside retreats, sky high city views, or just endearing colonial elegance, charm, and of course plenty of opulent pampering. You can find some great deals here, and Bangkok is one of the world's best cities for a five star splurge for those special evenings. The riverside properties along the Chao Phraya always live up to their billing, with such permanent fixtures as the esteemed Mandarin Oriental or the intimate former royalty residence Chakrabongse Villas ensuring great stays. Further upriver, the charming Siam Hotel is Bangkok's most expensive and exclusive option, with plenty of privacy and colonial class. For lovers of chic and urban, the Sofitel So dresses to impress, and commands a great location overlooking Lumpini Park. Just nearby, the St. Regis also overlooks Lumpini and is known as one of Bangkok's most refined and upscale spots, guaranteed to make for a romantic stay with its private butler service. The Siam Kempinski is also a top selection, as it has rooms opening right into the gorgeous swimming pool along with uber gourmet and romantic dining at Sra Bua. For some more river charm and  views of iconic Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, it doesn't get any better than from your balcony at the Sala Arun. The choices are endless for romantic stays in the City of Angels.
