The picturesque scenery and backdrop of glittering historical landmarks, juxtaposed with modern high-rise edifices, makes Bangkok’s riverside an eternal magnet for visitors. Within this setting, nestled in an exclusive position by the Chao Phraya River, is a legendary 5-star hotel that has taken on a truly royal quality through time. Here are tips that will allow you to enjoy yourself to the max at Royal Orchid Sheraton.
Guestrooms are spacious, well-appointed with magnificent river views, and the custom-designed Sheraton Signature Bed guarantees a sweet slumber. The Club Lounge provides personalised check-in and check-out services, the latest business amenities, food and beverage, as well as entertainment.
DINE A LOT
You’ll be wowed by the four award-winning restaurants. Feast, open all-day, offers international cuisine while Thara Thong serves royal Thai cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. Giorgio’s – Bangkok’s first Italian restaurant! – is perfect for dinner, as well as the stylish al fresco Riverside Grill where DJs spin music. To unwind, at any time of the day, head to the recently revamped Lobby Lounge.
When you take a break from enjoying Bangkok’s riverside scenery, you can indulge in any of the array of top-notch facilities such as the two outdoor swimming pools, jogging track, tennis court and 24-hour fitness centre. The Royal Orchid Mandara Spa is a heavenly experience (and each serene treatment room and suite has a panoramic river view!). Those who need to connect with the outside world can just register for the Link@Sheraton.

Although accessible by road, getting around by ferry on the Chao Phraya River is the most enjoyable method, especially if you want to explore riverside lifestyle and fascinating landmarks in the area. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle-boat service to BTS station Saphan Taksin, from where you can continue your journey by BTS or road into the city centre.
