Why Park Hyatt Bangkok is One of the City’s Most Photogenic Hotels

With art and design at its heart, the 222-key property brims with Thai hospitality and modern aesthetics.

Calling Park Hyatt Bangkok a work of art wouldn’t be an overstatement if you consider the long list of accolades recognizing its stunning design — it even made DestinAsian’s Luxe List 2017.

Occupying the top 27 floors of the Central Embassy retail complex, the 222-room property prides itself on contemporary design coupled with a warm, residential quality that will immediately put you at ease.  Given its location, you can be sure to capture one of the best views of the Bangkok skyline.

Upon entering the hotel, you’ll notice that design and art are truly at the heart of the property’s intimate spaces. Conceptualized by London-based AL_A and Bangkok-based Pi Design, the hotel is a one-of-a-kind landmark beautifully bound to the luxury mall in a twisted, coil-like structure that forms a three-dimensional figure of eight, representing good fortune in Chinese culture.

Take the opportunity to experience the hotel’s numerous outdoor terraces and witness spectacular views of the Thai city, which are framed by motifs and patterns found in traditional Thai architecture — think: eye-catching façade clad in extruded aluminum tiles.

Love art? You’ll feel right at home here. As the first Park Hyatt hotel in Thailand, the property stands out with dramatic installations that reflect the hospitality brand’s passion for creativity. Be sure to whip out your cameras for “Pagoda Mirage”, an artwork that incorporates hundreds of small, conical copper swirls, suspended en masse to evoke the reflection of a pagoda on water, as well as the “Naga” (situated on level 9), a series of batons suspended from the ceiling, resembling a mythical water dragon traveling between the pool and internal waterfall. Both of which were created by renowned Japanese artist Hirotoshi Sawada.

Aesthetics aside, comfort is top-notch.

Aesthetics aside, comfort is top-notch. Guests will find themselves spoilt for choice by the 222 guest rooms, which embody a sense of “liveable luxury”. We recommend the premier suites, where floor-to-ceiling windows draw in natural light and panoramic views — they are also considered one the most spacious room categories in town. Each room offers a strong sense of locality, reflected through natural materials and Thai accents.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or new to Bangkok, consider making use of Park Hyatt’s concierge services, which offer an exceptional range of services. Apart from limo transfers, buggy service, fast track, and in-room check-in, the hotel staff is also well equipped with great dining suggestions and knowledge of local hidden gems. If you fancy fresh seafood as much as we do, head to the elegant Embassy Room. For refined comfort food, afternoon tea, and canapes, make a beeline for the light-filled Living Room.

Artwork all around.

Party animals will be delighted by the Penthouse Bar & Grill, the hotel’s signature entertainment complex. Spanning the topmost floors, the Penthouse is a unique collection of six venues including The Grill, Chef’s Table, The Cocktail Bar, Whisky Room, The Mezzanine, and Rooftop Terrace. Consider spending an evening with a hearty dinner at The Grill before grooving the night away at the various bars above.

Blessed with easy access from the nearby BTS Ploenchit Station, and in close proximity to malls, art galleries, night markets, nightlife, and more; Park Hyatt Bangkok makes a lovely base for rediscovering the Thai capital all over again.
