Set on the bank of the Chao Phraya River in the heart of Old Bangkok, Chakrabongse Villas provides a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle of the modern city and yet is within easy reach of all the major tourist attractions. Four individual suites with all modern facilities are set in a lush tropical garden with a spacious swimming pool.

Built in 1908 by HRH Prince Chakrabongse, Chakrabongse House was originally used when he attended royal ceremonies in the Grand Palace and also for picnics and excursions on the river. Today the grounds have been transformed into a magical boutique hotel by his daughter, Narisa.
