Life is beautiful, inside and out when you are residing at The River, a creation by Raimon Land. Amidst the riverbanks, is this charming residence straddled in the heart of Thonburi. The greenery of the open-air spaces and the natural aesthetics of the Chao Phraya River speaks for itself. It’s a peaceful escape from urban city life and a vibrant community evolving to be the next city-centre of Bangkok.
What it’s like inside?
Stepping into the residence, you will find elegant architecture by HB Design Pte Ltd inspired by the ying and yang philosophy. Bouygues-Thai’s textured expression and sculptural façade boast an innovative approach towards an upscale lifestyle by the river. The contemporary-styled furnishings and decoration add a touch of sophistication, offering residents an exquisite taste of The River. Its timeless, iconic design and spacious rooms beat all the new high-rise condominiums emerging over the riverbanks. This luxury condominium houses two building (42 and 71 storeys) offering breathtaking views of the River of Kings and the city’s skyscrapers for all residents.
The River comprises a unique range of units, from one-bedroom to three-bedroom, duplexes and penthouse. The property’s world-class facilities offer every level of comfort and luxury: a state-of-the-art fitness centre, riverfront infinity pool and a 50m pool, a multi-purpose sports court, a stunning sky garden and ample parking. You can travel off to Taksin BTS station by the shuttle boat service offered by the residence, which is potentially the best way to avoid all traffic.
What really pulls us to want to live on the riverside is the unparalleled beauty of the Chao Phraya, green lush surroundings, and the relaxed atmosphere which you wouldn’t find in the centre of Bangkok. The River gives a real feel of the Riverside community on the Thonburi side with a gesture to urban living.
When it comes to choosing a place to call home, we want to assure ourselves that we are living in the best area that pretty much has everything we need. By the river, you can see yourself living a more active lifestyle by strolling around the sidewalks of the river or even using the residential amenities to fulfill your daily exercise. It’s worthwhile to note that Thonburi has less polluted air and traffic congestion, which means you are breathing more clean air than you would in Bangkok. Bangkokians can really cherish the tranquil nature of living at the western edge with greater privacy and don’t forget, the picturesque view of the river.
The River is located on a 12 Rai site which enjoys 120 meters of direct river frontage and conveniently located near many five-star hotels, hospitals, international schools, and public transportation. The newly-opened ICONSIAM shopping mall is just walking distance, with proximity to Peninsula Hotel, Millennium Hilton Bangkok, Shangri-la Hotel, and Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The highly esteemed Shrewsbury International School is a mere 20 minutes away and can also be accessed easily by boat, while St Louis Hospital and Bangkok’s notorious BNH are close by.
The increasing mass transit lines (BTS and MRT) have made connections between Thonburi and the Central Business District so easy, making things more accessible than ever. So, without any hassle, you can travel to and from the city centre in no time. Numerous sight-seeing attractions like Wat Arun, Santa Cruz Cathedral, and the Royal Barges Museum, are the treasure troves of the district enriching Thonburi’s cultural roots and history.
Thonburi is regaining its glory days and this gives us more reasons to choose to live here. It’s no surprise that investors are moving to the other side of the river, and it’s certainly an already desirable and up and coming district. The vibrant night scene offers a variety of choices with riverside restaurants, rooftop bars, and poolside terraces which are the benefits of living by the river.
Being the first luxurious residential project on Krung Thonburi does come with high expectations, but The River seems to be on top of its game, being recognised as the ‘Best Luxury Condo Development (Bangkok)’ along with ‘Best Condo Development (South East Asia)’ which it was awarded in 2012. The River by Raimon Land is one of the few places that feel like home – for all the right reasons.
