Anantara Siam Bangkok

155 Ratchadamri Rd., Bangkok, 10330, Thailand

One of Bangkok's more elegant hotels, until early 2015 a Four Seasons property, the Anantara Siam still attracts local society for morning coffee and afternoon tea in the formal lobby, where a string quartet often plays. There are plenty of shops off the courtyard, and what is arguably the city's best pool. The large rooms are decorated with silk-upholstered furniture. The best rooms overlook a racetrack—ask for a high floor so the Skytrain doesn't block the view. There are beautiful suites that overlook the hotel's tropical gardens and the Kasara rooms include access to the seventh-floor Kasara Lounge, where there is a private concierge and complimentary food and beverages are served throughout the day. Be sure to indulge in the spa's signature fragrant-oil massage while you're here. Rates fall dramatically during the off season.
