Hyatt is to open its first property under the Park Hyatt brand in Thailand, located in Bangkok’s central business district.
The 222-room Park Hyatt Bangkok will be housed within a mixed-use building featuring a “spectacular ‘twisted coil’ exterior”, with facilities including 49 suites, all-day dining and speciality restaurants, a sky bar and restaurant, 1,440sqm of meeting space, a business centre, spa, swimming pool and fitness centre.
The hotel will form part of the Central Embassy complex, the name having been inspired by the former British Embassy which stood on the site at the junction of Wireless Road and Ploenchit Road.
The building will feature 150 stores, including an “ultra premium cinema complex”, retail outlets, restaurants and a spa.
Park Hyatt Bangkok will join the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok (located on Rajdamri Road in the city's Ratchaprasong district), as the second Hyatt-branded property in the Thai capital.
