[HD video below] Exclusive HD video interview with Nikolaus Priesnitz, General Manager of the Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort and Spa.

In this interview, which was filmed on 1 September 2014, you will learn about the renovations which are currently taking place at this lovely resort, when they will be completed, what the work will mean for guests, what technology is being incorporated into the new-look rooms, and whether the room count will remain the same or not.

We also discuss the very first new-build Avani Hotel in the world, and ask how the two brands - Anantara and Avani - differ from one another. The Avani hotel, which is scheduled to open in October 2015, is located just behind the Anantara Bangkok Riverside. We discuss what the rooms at this brand new hotel will be like, how its target markets will differ from that of Anantara's, whether guests of one hotel will be able to use the facilities of the other, and what MICE facilities the hotel will have.

And, of course, as this hotel is in Bangkok, we had to ask how the political turmoil in the city has affected business and what the Anantara Riverside's forward bookings are looking like for the peak end of year season. We also ask which are the hotel's top markets and how Mr. Priesntiz's experience working in China helps him better understand the Chinese traveller, and what Anantara is doing to make them feel more at home, and their stay more comfortable.

You will also learn more about the luxurious and unique cruise options the hotel offers guests, how much they cost and how exclusive they are, and we also ask how Asiatique's opening two years ago has impacted the hotel and much, much more.
