Leave it to a rock star to build Bangkok’s next great resort. Thai-American musician Krissada Sukosol Clapp spent seven years obsessing over the details of his dream hotel on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. He hired renowned architect and designer of hotels Bill Bensley to channel Old Siam in the rooms and public spaces, acquired traditional Thai teakwood houses for the restaurant and spa, and combed through markets in Southeast Asia, Europe, and the United States for eye-catching objets (18th-century Chinese ceramics salvaged from shipwrecks; vintage Pan Am posters of Thailand). And while this retreat is bound to impress design aficionados, it also has the sybarite in mind: the 39 suites and villas, which start at 860 square feet, offer an escape from the city with deep soaking tubs, bamboo-shaded gardens, and enormous beds with nap-all-morning appeal.

Room to Book:

Any of the six Riverside suites on the top floor of the main residence.

Insider Tip:

The gym has a mini Muay Thai boxing ring, and experienced trainers are at the ready for those interested in the ancient martial art.
