At first glance, you may wonder whether you’ve entered an art museum or a hotel. Well, the Park Hyatt Bangkok happens to be both with an unbridled art collection that rivals some the city’s finest galleries. This architectural masterpiece is a uniquely modern addition to Bangkok’s skyline, and no expense was spared in making this stunning hotel a marvel both inside and out.
The hotel offers art tours of the property.
Beds in these sleek rooms face the massive windows, as if looking out to the city is a work of art on its own. Like the rest of the hotel, off white tones are standard and you’ll find daily bottled water, coffee and tea makers, and electric blinds with black out shades.
Some of the suites include their own kitchens, while the highest-class rooms come equipped with private gyms.
Bathrooms are designed to feel like a spa experience. There are giant sunken tubs, separate walk-in rain showers, large, illuminated mirrors, and luxurious Le Labo bath products.
Mocha limestones line the lobby as does more art on the walls and ceilings. You’ll find lots of little nooks to hole up and relax like a small library, or the hidden lobby bar with cushy seats and city views.
The salt water infinity pool uses volcanic rocks to keep the water warm. The loungers are positioned with a front row seat of the skyline and first-come-first-serve cabanas and daybeds are perfect for lounging away the day.
The spa uses all organic Panpuri products and features eight treatment rooms. There's a large locker room with sauna and steam facilities and a giant Jacuzzi.
Open 24/7, the Fitness Centre has hardwood floors, TechnoGym equipment, and infused water and apples for guests. Yoga classes are available in the gym or by the pool.
Make sure you look up as you descend to The Living Room restaurant, you’ll see an endless art installation of a water dragon. Beyond the Living Room’s afternoon tea and international dining, there’s the Embassy Room, which focuses on seafood, The Pantry, a DIY breakfast joint, and the Penthouse Bar + Grill, with a stunning outdoor terrace.
The Bar off the lobby is open from 7 a.m. to midnight and serves classic cocktails. Walking to The Bar’s outdoor terrace, guests will find a smoker’s lounge with outdoor air conditioning blowing from the benches--it’s very cool (pun intended). The Penthouse Bar + Grill is the hotel’s hotspot. Red leather couches sit against floor-to-ceiling windows as daily DJs spin smooth tunes for a well-heeled crowd.
There’s also a whiskey room/speakeasy with 250 different single malts!
Hopping on the Skytrain is the easiest way to get around the city and you’re only a couple minutes away from the nearest station. You can catch a taxi here without any problem, but traffic is usually a nightmare. Luckily, you’re also walking distance to any number of bars, restaurants, shopping, and attractions and the area is perfectly safe.
Pasta-pounders will find plenty to love at Biscotti (13-minute walk) inside the Grand Hyatt Erawan. If you’re looking for a classic cut of meat, check out New York Steakhouse (9-minute walk) inside the JW Marriott.
Diplomat Bar (9-minute walk) is a classic joint where the foreign service world looks to schmooze after busy days of diplomacy. If you want to hobnob with Bangkok’s high-society folks, head over to Aqua (15-minute walk) inside the Anantara Siam Hotel--reservations necessary.
