The Siam, a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, is a five-star boutique hotel in Bangkok’s riverfront Dusit neighborhood. All-suite accommodations are steeped in luxury, and every room comes with a dedicated butler.
A lush urban oasis, the hotel is made up of 39 rooms and villas for an intimate atmosphere that feels removed from Bangkok’s fast-paced streets. It’s one of the top-reviewed hotels on Trip Advisor, and a favorite for couples, honeymoons, business travel, and families seeking a high-end stay.
I spent the first two nights of my honeymoon in a Siam Suite, which starts at $400, and think it’s one of the best hotels I’ve ever booked to date for the high-end service, rich design, and spacious suites.

I always have high expectations for hotels when I travel. It’s why I meticulously research, plan, and vet any property before I book.
So when it came to planning my honeymoon, the bar was especially high. After all, it was my honeymoon. The word alone carried such a lofty connotation to guarantee the trip would be memorable, luxurious, and nicer than anywhere my husband and I had ever stayed.
And no property carried that weight more than our first hotel.
My husband and I chose to honeymoon in Thailand for a myriad of reasons: we’d never been to Asia, luxury hotels are incredibly affordable in Thailand, and it’s a place where we’d be able to mix adventure with relaxing.
We planned to travel around the country, but our first stop would be Bangkok, and we selected The Siam Bangkok based on its strong reviews, luxury reputation, and gorgeous starter rooms. Despite arriving late at night, bleary-eyed, after nearly 24 hours of travel, I was set on waking up somewhere incredible, even if we only had two days.
The Siam did not let me down.
Popular with couples and honeymooners, as well as business types, and even a few well-behaved families, The Siam is an all-suite boutique hotel set on three lush acres along the Chao Praya River, close to historic palaces, museums, and temples. It’s a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a collection of unique luxury properties around the world. Preferred members also receive perks such as member-only rates, early check-in, and late check-out, and room upgrades, when available.
My husband and I spent two nights in the entry-level Siam Suite, which starts as low as $400 based on online searches at the time of publication, but more typically hovers between $550 and $700 at busier times. I did receive a discounted media rate, however, I would gladly fork over the money to stay here again. Honeymoon or not, The Siam is a hotel you won’t soon forget with incredible service, well-appointed rooms, and a memorable riverfront location.
