Mandarin Oriental Bangkok

The Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok is a luxurious jewel rising over the banks of the Chao Phraya River. It's located close to the shopping centers of Silom, and the sky-train is only a few minutes away by one of the shuttle boats. 

This hotel is a piece of old luxury mixed with modern renovations that make it a comfortable stay. Also, it brings to mind the old luxury that made it a hit with many of the rich and famous over its long history.

The Hotel 

The Mandarin Oriental Bangkok was opened in 1876 as Bangkok’s first luxury hotel. It was originally just called the Oriental and was built on crown land to replace a seafarer's hostel. Moreover, the resort has seen many prominent guests, from royalty and heads of state to artists and authors. Wealthy industrialists and other famed travelers from around the world have also made their stay. 

Many famous authors wrote of their time here so that you may have read something inspired by a stay here. The style of the hotel features nods to traditional Thai textiles and style with floor-to-ceiling windows to allow you to appreciate the beautiful setting.

The facilities are numerous and include highlights such as the Oriental Spa that offers amazing views of the river. Numerous dining options offer cuisines from around the world. Over its long history, this luxury hotel has become renowned for its superb service and amazing facilities. This has made it one of the best hotels in Bangkok. 

Those looking for this legendary hotel's history will still find it even though it has been given a facelift in recent years. You can still enjoy the view that inspired countless authors over the years, even though Bangkok has changed much in the nearly 140 years since opening.


The hotel is set on each side of the Chao Phraya River, with each side accessed via one of the hotel's shuttle boats. It's located close to the business and shopping districts of Silom and has easy access to the sky train station. 

Besides, the Bangkok International Airport is only a short drive away. Easily visit shopping to pick up antiques, local arts, and silver work. It's also only a short boat rode away from the Royal Grand Palace.

Rooms and Suites

The rooms and suites are truly luxurious. The Garden wing rooms have an Edwardian style that harkens back to the origins of the hotel. Rooms in the more recent River wing have a more modern look. 

The bathrooms have a walk-in shower and a separate tub. Some rooms are split-level, with the beds on the upper floor and sitting rooms on the lower. There are also suites, one of which even has a private spa and gym. 

No matter which rooms you end up in, expect similar amenities that cover nearly anything you can expect from a luxury resort. 

The Spa

The Oriental Spa is across the river in a large, teak wood building. It focuses on physical and mental wellness with treatments to soothe your mind, body, and soul. This calming space has plenty of treatments and massages meant to help you relax and rejuvenate.

Expect special wraps, scrubs, and massages like one meant to help with jet lag. If you'd rather not take the shuttle boat across the river, there are a smaller number of devices and treatments offered at a spa in the main building. 


Those looking to focus on their physical fitness should head to the Sports Centre. You can enjoy the outdoor swimming pools as well as weight training, squash, and tennis. Besides, there are plenty of free activities like yoga and Tai chi. There is also a lap pool and a wading pool perfect for children next to the main hotel.
