The Secret Retreats difference makes your unique hotel in Bangkok experience unforgettable for all the right reasons.

Of course the luxury hotel Bangkok experience is world renowned for its high service standards, but it offers a far less personal, more corporate experience than a luxury boutique hotel Bangkok from the Secret Retreats collection.

Beyond the best luxury hotels in Bangkok and best boutique hotels Bangkok

Bangkok makes for a great start point to exploring Thailand, but don’t overlook the surrounding provinces, and the highlight of these provinces close to Bangkok has to be Ayutthaya. Around 90kms from Bangkok, Ayutthaya (the capital city of Ayutthaya province) was the capital city of Siam from 1350 until its destruction by the Burmese in 1767 when the capital was then moved to Thonburi (old Bangkok) in 1768. The remains of old Ayutthaya are preserved in a historical park open to visitors and give a great insight into Thailand’s history.

Secret Retreats’s The Bohemian’s Residence is 2 villa residences, with full service, set on the banks of a river between Uthai Thani and Ayutthaya. A stay in this private villa gives the visitor a unique experience of central Thai life, living amongst a small community, but with the luxury expected of Thailand private villas with a well appointed residence, friendly and attentive staff, private pool and your own private riverboat to explore the locality – check-in is by boat too!
