10 Most Romantic Bangkok Hotels to Pamper Yourself In



Bangkok features a wealth of romantic stays. While the streets may be chaotic and traffic-filled, you can retreat to your quarters along the Chao Phraya River and somewhat imagine why the city was called Venice of the East. Many of the most posh stays are to be found here, and most of them are oozing charm. For a real splurge, try the intimate Siam Hotel, located up in old Dusit, well away from the tourist crowds. The Mandarin Oriental remains a top favorite, with opulent suites looking out at the river and fantastic personalized service wherever you turn. You'll also find the small Chakrabongse Villas located here, former home to a prince and truly worthy of a royal romantic stay. At Sala Arun, you can even have a room staring out at Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, bathed in orange glow at sunrise, and lit up with golden lighting at sunset.

Romantic sleeps are not only restricted to the water. Inland, you will find the St. Regis, where suites come with a personal butler, giant bay windows with city views, and luxurious furnishings. Just around the corner is the cutting edge Sofitel So, where you can choose an elements-based room type that looks over Lumphini Park, and engage in fois gras fine dining at Park Society, the hotel's upper floor restaurant that overlooks the park and cityscape. The nearby Siam Kempinski also makes the list for top romantic stays, with rooms that access directly into the hotel's immense free-form swimming pool, feeling far more like a Samui resort than a city stay, and giving easy access to the molecular gastronomy offerings over at Sra Bua, the hotel's romantic restaurant. 

Even over on busy Sukhumvit Road will you find hidden charms. The Cabochon has an antique Shanghai in the 20s look, with only eight rooms, and the intimate Ariyasom Villa is also small and tucked away down a quiet lane, housed in an old 1940s mansion that was built by the owner's grandfather, and now has 25 lovely rooms oozing colonial style charm. For a romantic treat, Bangkok is a great spot.




If you are a fan of yesteryear, a stay at the Cabochon promises plenty of atmosphere, romance, and charm. The Cabochon is located at the end of a quiet alley off Sukhumvit Road, hidden away like a forgotten treasure. This boutique gem has only...  Read More
