In recent years there has been a popularity growth to build stunning Chao Phraya apartments and condominiums, each developer seemingly keen to outdo each other in the use of land, the state of art facilities that comes along with the condominium, breath taking designs that makes it stand apart from the masses of current and incoming high rise residential buildings.

The Chatrium

The Chatrium units are larger than most modern Bangkok condos constructed in the last 5 years. A Grade A condominium development, each and every unit possesses a clear and unblocked view of the Chao Phraya river. With a massive range of facilities, The Chatrium can almost feel like a self-contained town on the side of the Chao Phraya River. Facilities in this exclusive Bangkok condominium development range from large swimming pools, gymnasiums and gardens, to tennis courts, shops and cafes.
With units on the large size, they are also more expensive to rent in comparison to many Sukhumvit and Sathorn condos. However, one may be surprised that it actually works out about the same price or even cheaper if we go according to per sqm. A large 65sqm 1 Bedroom condos in The Chatrium condominium will cost as much as THB 40 000/month to rent. Renting a Chao Phraya condominium may come at a premium price, but if one were to consider the fantastic range of facilities that come along with it, and not to forget the beautiful view of the River and Grade A finishing, the price will seemed justified.

The Watermark Chao Phraya is possibly the most extravagant Chao Phraya condominium development to date, with a list of facilities as long as any Bangkok condominium development. Some highlights feature tennis courts, volley ball courts, Infinity swimming pools, squash court, gymnasium, landscaped gardens, moon pool and waterfall. With the Watermark containing such large units at Grade A standard, prices and rental prices are also at a premium. For example a 2 bedroom condos at this Chao Phraya development would rent at 55 000 Baht/month.
But with clear river views, as many facilities as an Amusement Park and top class finishes all round it, it makes for luxurious living. Perhaps you have not got THB 40 000++ to spend to rent a Bangkok condo but still prefers the terrific view of the river, there are some less expensive alternatives which can be hunted down.
Supalai River Place
One such condo is Supalai River Place, a ChaoPhraya condo with units starting at just 12 500 Baht/month.
