AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel welcomes first guests in Thailand

AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel has opened its doors as the first purpose-designed AVANI property, bringing the upscale brand’s contemporary style and modern hospitality to Bangkok’s Chao Phraya riverside.

The 248-key hotel speaks to the spirit of the millennial minded traveller, both in its product delivery and design elements.

From the top of the 26-storey hotel at the rooftop bar and pool, to the lobby, AVANI Riverside Bangkok gives guests a place to relax and unwind, and a base to start exploring nearby neighbourhoods along the river.

Walking into the vast 11th floor lobby, guests are greeted by an arresting view of the River of Kings. 


The open plan design blends reception, lounge, meeting, chill out and restaurant spaces.

The interiors are spatial, the driving ethos is modernity, fused with comfort and great craftsmanship.

The Long Bar serves a variety of refreshments, guests can enjoy sunrise breakfast or sunset dinner at Skyline, and The Pantry offers a mix of comfort food and artisanal deli snacks around the clock.

During the day, the rooftop terrace is the ideal place to enjoy uninterrupted views of the city while relaxing at the impressive infinity pool, enjoying light bites from the pool menu.

A multipurpose sunken lounge located in the middle of the terrace has a retractable roof which provides sunlight or shade, depending on the weather.

All of the property’s guest rooms and suites are river facing, with expansive views of the Thai capital.

The neutral décor is a blend of comfort and modernity, natural materials and high-tech equipment, with black out curtains, rain shower, dedicated work station with free Wi-Fi and a media hub docking station as standard. 

AVANI River View Junior Suites offer nearly twice the space as the AVANI River View Rooms and include a freestanding bathtub set beside a full length river view window.

AVANI River View Two Bedroom Suites offer an open plan lounge and dining room, along with a kitchen and laundry area.

The AVANI River View Three Bedroom Suite is the optimum choice for families and friends.

Contemporary, pure and relaxed, AVANISPA offers a tailored experience focusing on guest’s individual needs.

These include the signature touch treatment – a soothing oil massage coupled with stretching techniques, and the naturally youthful facial, an uplifting anti-aging treatment that energises, balances and refreshes the skin.

The hotel’s riverside location makes all of Bangkok’s attractions easily accessible.

Shuttle boat services link to the Asiatique night market and entertainment complex, and also the BTS Skytrain at the central Saphan Taksin boat pier for swift connections to major commercial, shopping and entertainment districts.

For those who prefer not to venture too far, Riverside Plaza adjoins the Hotel offering a selection of retail outlets, coffee shops and restaurants.

Dillip Rajakarier, chief executive, Minor Hotels said: “We are excited to add the first purpose-designed AVANI hotel to the brand’s portfolio.”
