Grand Hyatt Erawan
494 Ratchadamri Rd., Bangkok, 10330, Thailand
Having grand in the name is not a misnomer. This enormous hotel in the Ratchaprasong Business District features nine eating and drinking establishments, a top-rated spa, a gorgeous outdoor pool, and more. High-end hoteliers will love the property’s attention to detail and service, as well as the location, which provides a gateway to the entire city.
The Grand Hyatt is attached to an entire mall. That's right, there's a whole mall literally attached to the hotel. So, shoppers, have at it.
Burberry-carpeted rooms come with free water, tea, and coffee. Views from most rooms are exceptional--especially towards the top of the 22 floors. Simple, yet elegant, the accommodations ooze sophistication.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Though basic Wi-Fi is free, if you want to stream Netflix, you may need to pay for the upgraded service.
Peek-a-boo bathrooms are fun for the frisky--but the prudish can close a divider just in case. June Jacobs products are standard, as are the separate shower and bathtubs.
The stunning atrium lobby soars above tasteful Thai art and design. Hardwood floors lead guests to eating spots hanging over running water features and beige rugs. Massive columns dwarf the surroundings and a majestic staircase provides landscape views of the exquisite design.
Teakwood slats surround the bulbous pool with black & white striped deck chairs. The Breezeway is the pool-adjacent restaurant and bar serving light bites.
The Breezeway has a great happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with two for one wine and beer specials.
A world-class facility, the I.Sawan Residential Spa & Club has nine treatment rooms with every kind of massage, facial, wrap, and more. Additionally, there’s a full-service salon for hair and makeup needs and a manicurists for any nail-related repairs.
Don’t forget to check out the locker rooms. Here there are sauna and steam rooms as well as hot and cold plunge pools to get your circulation going!
Body-builders will love the fully equipped gym with Technogym machines and ample free weights looking out through floor to ceiling windows.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The hotel offers daily classes from yoga and Pilates to Zumba and Tai-chi. Be aware that classes will run you 400 Baht per person.
Cuisine options run the gamut from Italian and Thai to steak and European. Spasso is their signature Italian joint worth splurging on and the Erawan Tea Room has one of the best afternoon teas in Thailand.
Bar@494 is the hotel’s wine and champagne spot that’s perfect for a romantic drink. After (and during) dinner, Spasso features a live band.
Attached to the Skytrain, guests can hop on at either Chit Lom or Siam stations and all are connected via walkway. If you ever want to get in a cab (we’d recommend against it), make sure you ride before or after work hours or you’ll be stuck in traffic.
Gaggan (7-minute drive) is a progressive Indian eatery and is consistently rated as one of the best restaurants in all of Asia. For something a little east-meets-west, check out Hyde & Seek Gastro Bar (7-minute drive).
One of the best rooftop experiences in Bangkok is at Red Sky Bar inside the Centara Grand at CentralWorld (8-minute walk). If you want to hob-nob with some foreign service workers, head over to the Diplomat Bar (7-minute drive) inside the Conrad Hotel.
WHY WE LIKE IT
This sophisticated hotel provides the best in service, quality, and amenities, and rightfully so for the price. The location is ideal with Skytrain access and any number of walking destinations. The spa is fabulous, the restaurants are mouthwatering, and the pool is relaxing.
