Very helpful staff

Stayed for 4 nights last month & enjoyed it immensely. The location could not be bettered if you are interested in visiting the old city. We found our room rather small but beautifully presented. Tea & coffee was available on the landing outside the room. Having breakfast overlooking the river was a very memorable experiance. […]

Oasis of calm in busy Bangkok

Surreal and beautiful place to stay, tucked away behind some unassuming gates this hidden gem of a boutique hotel lends a completely different perspective to Bangkok. Admittedly it is not for everyone, it is not large and corporate, there isn’t 24 hour room service etc. However, the staff are incredibly helpful, the rooms and grounds […]

Wonderful Oasis in the heart of Old Bangkok

“What a wonderful place. Bangkok was supposed to be a place where we adjusted to the time difference in Thailand – but actually loved our experience here – and much of it is thanks to our expereience at the Chakrabongse Villas. Now don’t get me wrong – I gave it 5 stars because I can’t […]

Unique in Bangkok, unique anywhere

I’ve been coming here since Narisa Chakrabongse opened her riverside palace to guests, and there is nothing at all comparable in Bangkok — an Italianate palace built as a retreat from court life by a Thai Prince. Opposite is Wat Arun, a short stroll is Wat Po. The staff, the service, the food wonderful.

Great ambience…amazing place..magic gardens

“We were invited to a private function at this amazing place on the river…you could see Wat Aron opposite…we are familiar with the area..but the view on the 7 pm..sipping champagne..was as close to heaven I was going to experience..the stars, and sights of the is beautiful city of Bangkok. This must be the […]

Paradise in Bangkok

This hotel is amazing with an outstanding view of the river and Wat Arun and a perfect location to explore the city. We enjoyed having breakfast and dinner just next to the river. If we had to leave before 8am they prepared sandwiches for us. The service was outstanding and they were so nice and […]

Stunningly perfect

My three day stay was such a heavenly treat. Behind the gate lay a tranquil escape from the exciting but tiring streets outside. Wonderful rooms with lovely staff and freshly cooked thai food to die for. All that and a midnight swim under a crescent moon!!

Off the Scale !

We arrived in Bangkok with a few hours to discover the city and enjoy the hotel. Wow – there are not enough words except to say Thank you Paul Walker at Secret – Retreats – what a place and what an amazing hotel. This is not a hotel its an experience and without doubt the […]

Perfect oasis in Bangkok

“I had a wonderful time staying at Chakrabongse Villas. I had hoped for a leafy enclave to get away from the bustle and pollution of Bangkok whilst still being well located to explore the city. It was that and much more. The private complex has an interesting history, and the setting gives views of the […]

Wonderful stay

We loved this place! It was gorgeous and calm, and the managers are extremely friendly and professional. We enjoyed falling asleep to the soothing sounds of the river right outside our door, and loved the excellent location right next to the grand palace and wat Arun. I’d love to come back at some point in […]
