Just when you think Bangkok couldn't possibly support more luxury hotels, another one opens that makes the rest look like budget bungalows. The Siam, opened in 2013, is something very special, and though the rates are astronomical, the place is already the talk of the town. With just 38 suites and pool villas, the smallest of which is 860 square feet, it offers the height of luxury. Suites feature lofty ceilings, massive beds, and plush furnishings in the Art Deco-style living area. Low-hanging lamps, art of Old Siam, and free-standing bathtubs are other appealing features. It includes all the facilities you'd expect in a 5-star hotel, plus a few more, such as a library, an atrium, a private pier, and luxury speedboat for guests, personal fitness training, and cooking classes. Sitting on three acres of prime riverfront in the Dusit district, The Siam is set to become Bangkok's new place to be.
