Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen's Park: Vibrant downtown resort with endless activities for the whole family

Feed off the energy of buzzing downtown Bangkok at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen's Park, a five-star resort just a leisurely walk from the best family-friendly activities that downtown Bangkok has to offer. Guests even have exclusive admission to Benchasiri Park (a local favourite, featuring a serene lake, sculpture park, and a large sprawling playground), which connects directly to the hotel.

Float in the relaxing pool before or forget all of your worries at the luxury Quan Spa, while younger family members have a blast at the kids’ club, complete with its own children’s pool. Breathtaking views of the Bangkok skyline, from both your room and the 37th-floor Abar Rooftop, will mesmerise young and old alike. Meanwhile, the hotel’s seven bars and restaurants, serving curated cuisine including Chinese, Thai, Korean, and fusion dishes, are sure to please even the fussiest eaters.

Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort: Nature lover’s paradise within a stone’s throw of the city

An oasis within the city is waiting for you at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort. Surrounded by 11 acres of palm tree-fringed tropical gardens, swimming pools, and Jacuzzis, this tranquil resort sits on the banks of the Chao Phraya River with dreamy views of the bustling city.

Your family’s days will be packed with curated services, tours and activities. Wake up to a breakfast overlooking the river before stepping onto the resort’s complimentary shuttle boat taking you into the heart of Bangkok. Practice your form or introduce the kids to a new activity with an afternoon spent in a Tai Chi masterclass or a yoga session. Little ones will love the endless hours of fun at the Chang Noi Kids' Club, while you relax at the full-service Anantara Spa. Make use of the resort’s babysitting service and embark on a romantic Manohra Cruise, with the chance to savour Thai favourites while floating down the River of Kings on a wooden barge.

U Sathorn Bangkok: A five-star safe haven in the middle of the city

It’s hard to believe you’re surrounded by the teeming streets of the city when you're lounging poolside at U Sathorn Bangkok. The only sounds you’ll hear are the birds as you sip your complimentary welcome cocktail and take in the French colonial-inspired courtyard pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Your little ones will love splashing around the smaller kiddy swimming pool.

This resort pays impeccable attention to the smallest of details. Are you a family that likes to sleep in? No problem, the overflowing breakfast buffet is available 24-hours a day. Foodie families are in luck, as the U Sathorn proudly hosts the Michelin-starred J’AIME restaurant, where French and Asian flavours are effortlessly blended.

Villa de Khaosan: Old meets new in this stylish and energetic resort

Fun for the whole family, the lively Villa de Khaosan resort has it all. With the motto ‘East meets West’, the decor brings guests back to the 16th century, when the French and the Vietnamese cultures collided. Step into the rooftop pool and take in panoramic views of downtown Bangkok and the stunning Grand Palace, or lounge next to the water at the Sky Pool Bar, where you can taste a tropical cocktail or two while the sun sets over the city.

Rooms are modern and outfitted with everything your family needs for a comfortable stay. Although the infamously buzzing Khaosan Road is just a five-minute walk away, this resort couldn’t be more quiet or relaxing. Staying in for dinner? The opulently decorated Millionaire Club & Bistro​ serves up fresh food with refined taste. The friendly staff plans kids' activities, so they’ll never have a dull moment, even when you’re relaxing in the onsite spa.

Ariyasom Villa: For the family who wants nothing more than a private sanctuary

The friendly staff at the intimate Ariyasom Villa resort will make you feel like you’re at home the minute you step through the door. This family-friendly hideaway in the city maintains the 1940s charm of its inception, but with all of the comforts of modern renovation.

Spend a lazy afternoon soaking up the sun in the courtyard before pampering yourself with a wonderful oil massage in the open-air facilities of the Som Sen Spa. Your kids will love splashing around the rejuvenating pool and exploring the tropical garden. The on-site Na Aroon restaurant serves up all of your Thai favourites in the verdant courtyard. Soak in the Jacuzzi before turning in for the night.
