Bottom Line

The 300-room Siam Kempinski is one of Bangkok's most opulent hotels. It's a five pearl property located smack in the city center, behind the Siam Paragon luxury mall. Elegant rooms -- set around a garden oasis with saltwater swimming pools flowing through it -- are decked out in contemporary Thai decor and feature silk curtains and paintings as well as amenities such as daily stocked minibars and big flat-screen TVs. Some rooms give direct access into the large meandering pool that is the centerpiece of the property. There is a bright, well-equipped fitness center with shiny wood floors. Siam Kempinski is also the home of the acclaimed Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, by a Michelin-rated chef. The opulence here comes at a hefty price tag, but it is comparable to other five pearl elite properties in the city. With its gardens, pool, and private feel, this is more like an island resort than a city hotel. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Scene

Palatial, upscale hotel with lush gardens surrounding a winding pool

The Siam Kempinski is an over-the-top opulent hotel, from the statement lobby with palatial ceilings, large chandeliers, towering white marble columns, and an indoor fountain to the gorgeous grounds with lush gardens that surround a winding saltwater swimming pool. The property is both stylish and refined while at the same time giving off the feel of an island oasis retreat in the midst of the concrete jungle. The hotel is one of these rare city properties where guests will be excused if they never want to leave or go anywhere outside the four walls, but rather just stay in and enjoy the grandiose and lavish surroundings. If you are looking for an escapist resort in the middle of downtown, it doesn't get much better than this.

Location

Right in the heart of downtown behind the luxury Siam Paragon Mall

The Siam Kempinski is located right in the epicenter of downtown Bangkok. The hotel sits hidden from view behind Siam Paragon, the luxury shopping mall, and even has its own entrance from the back of the mall. From the front door, it's a five-minute walk to the Siam skytrain station, giving access without traffic to the rest of Bangkok. Guests are in shopping heaven here, and there hundreds of dining and drinking options outside, both in Siam Paragon and around Siam Square. The only drawback to this location is brutal road congestion which can make driving and taxi rides a grueling process. 

Rooms

Grandiose rooms with artwork and elegant furnishings

The Siam Kempinski has 300 rooms and suites, all of them grandiose and stylish. Rooms feature spacious bathrooms and living quarters, with fine paintings, silk curtains, and views out to the lovely grounds and large pools. Some rooms give direct private access straight into the water, making the hotel feel far more like an island resort than anything in the middle of Bangkok. Room amenities include large flat-screen TVs, electric kettles, daily stocked minibars, laptop-size safes, large glass-topped writing desks, and bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and rain showers. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the pool. There is free Wi-Fi in each room.

Features

Huge meandering pool, top notch spa and fitness center, plus acclaimed restaurant featuring molecular gastronomy

The Siam Kempinski is home to Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, an acclaimed restaurant run by a Danish chef who specializes in molecular Thai gastronomy. In addition to this, there is the Brasserie Europa, which specializes in Sunday buffets with free flowing Champagne, and Niche, a casual gourmet dining spot that has burgers, sandwiches, and smoothies served throughout the day and evening.

The hotel has a giant saltwater pool that meanders throughout the property. It also features a state of the art fitness center that has lots of cardio machines and is open 24 hours. The Kempinski Spa is also noted for its pampering signature massage and wellness treatments. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
