Unique for a Bangkok hotel, the Anantara is set in 11 acres of tranquil gardens, an oasis in the bustling metropolis. Its riverside location also means that many of the 407 rooms command excellent views over the river. The Anantara is located on the Thonburi side of the river, therefore views are across to the spectacular city skyline. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle-boat to the city side at Sathorn. Facilities include several restaurants, a converted rice-barge offering cruises on the Chao Praya river, Anantara Spa, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and tennis courts in the lush gardens.
