For those seeking a place to get away from chaos, SilverNeedle Collection introduces its two new luxury properties in which travellers can indulge the slow life and a picturesque view of the Chao Phraya River.

The recently opened Riva Arun boutique hotel offers 25 well-decorated rooms, ranging in eight types to provide a superior holiday stay. With a contemporary twist, an interior décor evokes a sense of Chino Colonial culture using curved wood and ornate ironwork to create a smart and elegant look.

It also has Above Riva rooftop restaurant from where customers can admire a beautiful backdrop of the river and the old city while having a taste of Thai cuisine. Settled in the heart of Rattanakosin Island, it’s a short walk to the historical sites like Wat Pho, Wat Arun, the Grand Palace and the Museum of Siam.    

A private boat ride away from Riva Arun is its sister Riva Surya boutique hotel in the lively Khao San district. A perfect base to enjoy the sights and sounds of the capital, it boasts 68 stylishly designed rooms, elegant dining options and an exclusive riverside swimming pool with other leisure facilities.

Many of the city’s key attractions are easy walking or cycling distance, while the hotel gives you access to the Chao Phraya Express Boat service to set off on sightseeing adventures. Check the room rates at
