Bangkok has a new kid on the block, or more specifically on the riverbank, in the form of The Siam hotel.
What’s the story?
Thai pop singer/film actor Krissada Sukosol Clapp has returned to his family’s hotelier roots with the help of starchitect, Bill Bensley. The artiste turned design director had the vision to transform a three acre stretch of land on the banks of the Chao Praya in Bangkok owned by his mother into a luxury 39-suite hotel. After seven years the result – The Siam – opens fully this month.
