AVANI Riverside Bangkok
AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel has opened its doors as the first purpose-designed AVANI property, bringing the upscale brand’s contemporary style and modern hospitality to Bangkok’s Chao Phraya riverside. The 248-key hotel speaks to the spirit of the millennial minded traveller, both in its product delivery and design elements.
From the top of the 26-storey hotel at the rooftop bar and pool, to the lobby, AVANI Riverside Bangkok provide open plan designs in the reception, lounge, meeting, chill out and restaurant spaces. The interiors are spatial, the driving ethos is modernity, fused with comfort and great craftsmanship.
ATTITUDE, on the 26th floor, is Bangkok’s newest rooftop hot spot to see and be seen. During the day, the rooftop terrace is the ideal place to enjoy uninterrupted views of the city while relaxing at the impressive infinity pool. A multipurpose sunken lounge located in the middle of the terrace has a retractable roof, which provides sunlight or shade, depending on the weather.
All of the property’s guest rooms and suites are river-facing, with expansive views of the Thai capital. The neutral décor is a blend of comfort and modernity, natural materials and high-tech equipment, with black-out curtains and rain showers.
AVANI River View Junior Suites offer nearly twice the space as the AVANI River View Rooms and include a freestanding bathtub set beside a full-length river view window. AVANI River View Two Bedroom Suites offer an open plan lounge and dining room, along with a kitchen and laundry area.
AVANIFIT focuses on lifestyle elements that promote a healthy body and healthy mind, and the gym, with a scenic view of the river.
The hotel is also home to one of the most versatile offerings in all of Asia for meetings and events. The new multi-purpose events complex on the 10th floor offers over 4,500 square metres of flexible space including the Grand Riverside Ballroom which can accommodate 900 guests banquet style, 1,200 guests for a staged performance and 1,500 guests theatre style. These impressive ballroom capacities are further accentuated by an open showcase kitchen, an 11-metre high ceiling and natural light. In addition to the ballroom, the complex also offers 11 state-of-the-art meeting rooms, generous pre-function space and an outdoor terrace, with much of the additional meeting space offering a river view.
Dillip Rajakarier, Chief Executive Officer Minor Hotels, said: “We are excited to add the first purpose-designed AVANI hotel to the brand’s portfolio. AVANI appeals to millennial minded travellers and AVANI Riverside Bangkok effortlessly taps into their needs by offering affordability, a good night’s sleep, free WiFi, communal social spaces and imaginative F&B experiences.”
