Hotel Review: Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River


Book A Stay

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is one of the best luxury hotels in Bangkok, Thailand. This hotel and Private Residences have taken their place as iconic landmarks on the longest waterfront promenade in Bangkok, covering 35-2-68 rai.

Several clients who book through our luxury travel concierge have asked me for reviews of Four Seasons Bangkok, as the availability of lengthy reviews outlining this city resort are sparse or non-existent online so far. So in this review, I have combined the detail that the Four Seasons press team has provided me with comments and reviews from our clients who have already and are currently staying here to give everyone a full picture of this fabulous city.

There is no Four Seasons rewards program, but if you are a regular guest of the Four Seasons or even want to try this iconic brand for the first time, you can take advantage of loyalty style benefits at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our luxury travel concierge.

Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River has wonderful art-filled spaces, sophisticated lounges, and plenty of lush tropical greenery accompanied by the gentle sounds of water features and inviting open-air terraces.

This is the fourth location in the Four Seasons Thailand Collection, which includes the coconut palm-fringed beachfront of Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui in the south; Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai set amid working rice paddies just outside the northern capital; and Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, an elephant camp set in the jungle along the Mekong River.

The Urban Wellness Centre at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is spread across more than 2,500 m² (26,900 ft²) of dedicated space, with an emphasis on Mind (spirituality), Body (spa), and Work (fitness). The central feature is the Palm Courtyard, an oasis of wellbeing in the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities. The lavish spa suite has its own private bath and indoor garden, and there are eight additional treatment rooms.

Additional services are provided at the in-house hair salon, barbershop, and nail salon. The fitness offering encompasses a naturally lit state-of-the-art gym, a dedicated mind, and body studio with regular open and private classes, and a glorious 30 meter (98 foot) lap pool pictured above.
