New Three-Story Suites by Chao Phraya River: Bangkok Tree House

By BK staff | Apr 30, 2012

  • New Three-Story Suites by Chao Phraya River: Bangkok Tree House

Politician and hotelier Jirayu Tulyanont is expanding into the lung of Bangkok, in Bangkrajao (technically in Samut Prakarn). Unlike The Old Bangkok Inn (www.oldbangkokinn.com), his other property which celebrates the city’s heritage, Bangkok Tree House (www.bangkoktreehouse.com) is a cluster of three-story suites sitting by the Chao Phraya River, in very green surroundings. Despite the name, this is no homestay hut, though. The Bangkok Tree House’s clean-cut architecture combines mineral (metal, glass and lots of mirrors) and organic (wood and bamboo) materials to perfection. Ideal for a staycation, we recommend you book the rooftop deck of its Reflect restaurant, where you can sit on bean bags and order a high tea set while you enjoy the view. When we visited, you could still tell all the hallmarks of a newly opened hotel (a table needing a wipe here, uneven service there), but we’d still recommend you rush to check it out. Suites are B6,000, inclusive of breakfast, Wi-Fi internet, free ice-cream and bike rentals, great as Bangkrajao is Bangkok’s very best cycling spot.
