Mandarin Oriental Bangkok


This classy retreat on the banks of the Chao Phraya River has a reputation for being one of the best places to stay in Bangkok, with outstanding facilities and style. Despite its central location and easy access to all of the city’s main attractions, the hotel is in a quiet and peaceful setting.

Combining opulent Thai style with contemporary touches, each of the 358 rooms and suites is unique. Most have river views, feature huge bathrooms and come with butlers. 

Home to nine restaurants and bars, highlights include Lord Jim’s, which specialises in seafood, and fine dining restaurant, Le Normandie. The delicious afternoon tea, served in the historical Author’s Lounge is a must.

The hotel offers a welcome retreat after exploring the sights of Bangkok. A treatment in their award-winning Oriental Spa is the perfect way to relax, or you can take a yoga or Tai Chi class. As well as two outdoor pools and a gym, you can play tennis and squash. Alternatively, take a cooking class at the Oriental Thai Cooking School.

Location & Getting There

Perched on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in downtown Bangkok, the Mandarin Oriental is just a 25-minute drive from Suvarnabhumi Airport. It is about 3.5 km from Chinatown and the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun).


There are 339 rooms, 15 types in total, all which include iPod docking stations, pillow menus and minibars. The basic roooms offer magnificent river and city views with floor-to-ceiling windows, separate baths and a twin vanity room. Suites are ideal for those looking at additional amenities such as spacious sitting rooms and walk-in closets. For the ultimate luxury, the Royal Oriental Suite features two bedrooms, a pantry, a guest powder room and two balconies boasting paranomic river views. We particularly love the Author Suites, named after famous writers who have visited this iconic hotel and stayed in these rooms in the past.


The hotel provides a free shuttle boat to Taksin BTS Skytrain Station, River City Shopping Complex and Sala Rim Naam Restaurant for guests' convenience. Other nearby attractions include Chinatown, Sri Mariamman Temple, Snake Farm, State Tower and Wat Arun temple. Within the hotel, there are also cooking classes and lectures for guests who are interested in Thailand's unique and fascinating culture.


A kid's pool, kids' club and babysitting services are available for guests with children.

Why we recommend Mandarin Oriental Bangkok

“Mandarin Oriental Bangkok is a grand and greatly located sanctuary on the banks of the Chai Phraya River in Bangkok. When it comes to hospitality, it’s in a world of its own. It caters exceptionally well for couples and families, and children are treated like mini-VIPs. The two outdoor pools are most welcome after exploring the frenetic city, and the Bamboo Bar is excellent for a pre-dinner cocktail. The  jazz performances here - which take place later in the night - are classed as some of the best in the city."
