Rose Garden Riverside is a family-run property just 30km west of Bangkok. Back in 1964, the business started as a supplier of roses to the Bangkok flower markets. Since then, it has grown gradually to a 70-acre riverside property where visitors can experience authentic Thai way of life and learn about our local wisdom. Rose Garden Riverside is more like a community than a 'typical' resort. Our facilities in the property include a 4-star riverside hotel with 160 rooms, 6 antique Thai houses around a serene lake, Arusaya Spa, restaurants and meetings rooms. Dining is considered an art at Rose Garden Riverside. At Inn Chan in particular, our menus are true to traditional Thai styles of presentation.

Sorry, there isn't any nightlife within walking distance of the property as we focus more on activities related to Thai culture and way of life.

RGR, nightlife is certainly an organic part of Thai culture and way of life, but I get your point. I ride anyway, so if I came out, I could ride to a club in the evening. My daughter and I both like elephants a lot. They're cool animals. And my daughter loves river cruises.
