Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok will unveil the first batch of its renovated guestrooms in August.
The hotel, which opened in 1991, has undertaken an extensive, two-phase re-modelling programme of 374 guestrooms and suites, as well as the club lounge.
The first phase, which involves a total of 197 guestrooms, started in March. Eighty-three of these new rooms will be ready to welcome guests next month, and the rest will be unveiled in October. The second phase will run from April 2013 until the following September.
The revamp, under the direction of American interior designer Tony Chi, follows a contemporary style, with classical touches and distinct Thai flavour. As the property is located in the main business district of Bangkok, the refurbishing has also put emphasis on the hotel rooms’ work area, which is functional, stylish and whimsical. The Ottoman-shape design of the desk allows for concentrated study as well as comfortably seating three people for casual dining. Elephant (erawan) and frog sculptures placed in the room add a touch of lightheartedness.
