The shuttle boat ride, the refreshing wind, the colorful sky in the evening, to the Chatrium was the start of our weekend getaway. The weather was a bit cloudy but still nice. From the hotel boat dock we walk through the River Barge; an all day buffet restaurant with indoor and outdoor riverside seating. At the lobby, there was a huge crowd, the staffs were efficient and handled everything well.
Our room was the Chatrium Grand 2 bedroom suite on the 23rd floor with a large terrace facing the Chao Phraya River. The living area was very spacious; it includes a dining table and a full functional kitchen. The bedrooms were small compared to the living room but they were design to have very large wall to wall floor to ceiling windows which looks out to the river. Each room comes with a LCD TV.
One of the places we spent most of our time was at the pool. It is located on the 4th floor. The refreshing water, cool breeze of the Chao Phaya and light sun was a perfect combination for a relaxing day outside. It also offers a 180 degrees view of the Chao Phaya river.
In the evening it is best to stay at our room and catch the sunset and light change from day to night. We took the room service to our advantage and made the evening complete. The outdoor terrace is the perfect location to do just that. The occasional breeze, the vibrant Bangkok skyline, the lively river all made our short weekend gateway a memorable one.
