Construction of the Avani Bangkok Riverside is complete, and the hotel will officially open later this year. An exact date for the hotel's opening has yet to be announced.
Overlooking Bangkok's legendary Chao Phraya, a.k.a. the River of Kings, the 26-storey hotel sits atop a retail complex called Avani Plaza, which will have 60 bars, restaurants, and shops.
The complex is located on Chareon Nakorn Road behind the Anantara Riverside Resort and Spa. While the hotel is not situated directly on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, all of its 249 guest rooms and suites are located on the 12th floor or above to afford spectacular views of the river.
The hotel is located directly opposite Asiatique The Riverside, a massive night market with hundreds of boutiques, food and beverage outlets, entertainment venues, and other facilities. The hotel will offer a free shuttle service across the river to the night market.
The hotel will have a roof-top infinity swimming pool, a fitness centre, 4,500 square metres of multipurpose space for meetings and events, and other facilities.
