The Avani Riverside Bangkok is owned by the Minor Hotels Group that owns and manages, among diverse businesses, the famous Anantara chain of hotels. The Avani Riverside is a departure from the “conservative slick” set up of the Anantara resort and having opened in April 2016, is equipped with the latest technologies and of course, you can expect similar top-notch service.
Overlooking the Chao Phraya River, this upmarket hotel is just about 8 km from both the Wat Arun temple and the Grand Palace. It’s also 13 km from Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World. Guests will especially love the rooftop infinity pool among its wide range of amenities. If anyone asked me to sum my sentiment of the hotel, it would be “gorgeous hotel near the heart of Bangkok but away from the hustle and bustle”.

The success of a hotel longevity lies in it’s ability to encourage returning guests and generate new guests either by words of mouth. I like to think the Avani Riverside Bangkok, as a fabulous riverside hotel that will certainly stand the test of time and be a top hotel, bear none. Will I stay again in future to Bangkok ? -100% Yes ! Will I recommend it to anyone visiting Bangkok -100% Yes too ! Do check out my recent Bangkok food blog that you can easily do by accessing the BTS located just across the Chao Phraya river from this hotel.
