iudia on the River

Located off U-Thong Road to the south of the island, this small and stylish luxury boutique resort is set right on the Chao Phraya River and affords great views of Wat Putthaisawan on the other side.

All 13 rooms are different from the next, making this a true boutique, and each are named after prominent foreigners in Ayutthaya's history such as the legendary Hui-Chinese explorer, Zheng He, who visited the city in 1407, and Greek adventurer Constantine Phaulkon, who became a trusted counsellor to King Narai in the 1600s. Rooms themselves are as intriguing as their history lesson names suggest. Striking a tasteful balance between modern comfort and traditional Thai sensibility, the priciest riverview rooms feature high arched ceilings, silk couches with traditional Thai designs, dimly lit hanging chandeliers and lanterns, and window-doors that open onto huge wooden verandas. While not as dramatic, the cheaper rooms are also elegant and offer decent value for the money. All of the expected amenities -- WiFi, TVs, fridges, coffee/tea facilities, air-con, safes and bath robes -- come with all rooms. The resort also has two small pools that stay open 24 hours, a shared riverside terrace and a lovely cafe with a book shop where you can pick up titles like Rediscovering Spiritual Value. Breakfast and bicycles are also complimentary for guests. Just south of Ayutthaya hospital and near the roti vendors, the out-of-the-way location is suitable for those seeking peace and quiet.
