Park Hyatt Bangkok

The Thai capital's art-filled haven

Occupying 27 floors directly above Central Embassy, one of Bangkok’s newest luxury shopping malls, Park Hyatt Bangkok has a commanding presence in the city’s downtown area. Even with its prime location, it manages to maintain an intimate feel throughout, thanks to a tranquil design by renowned London architecture firm AL_A, which was asked to replicate the privacy and calm of a residence.

This is clear from the moment you enter the petite lobby or start exploring the hotel’s many nooks, where pieces from the property’s impressive art collection can be found. From huge installations by Japanese sculptor Hirotoshi Sawada to colorful silk pieces by Thai artist Chatchai Puipiato a stainless-steel meteorite by Chinese sculptor Zhang Wang, this collection is so extensive the hotel offers in-house art tours. (And the building itself also is a piece of art: an aerial view reveals its shape resembles a 3D figure eight — an auspicious number in Chinese culture — and it’s covered in shimmering aluminum tiles, a nod to Thai design.)

These pieces are great conversation starters while sipping cocktails on the air-conditioned 10th-floor terrace of The Bar or savoring breakfast and skyline views in the elegant Embassy Room.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Park Hyatt Bangkok’s local design touches are subtle, from traditional Benjarong pottery to Thai motifs in wallpaper. The art, of course, is also a standout with pieces from Thai and international artists.
  • The luxury hotel’s light and airy spa is operated by Panpuri Organic Spa, which is renowned in Asia for using all-natural materials and ingredients for its bathrobes, sheets, towels, scrubs and creams.
  • Wait until sunset to make the most of the extraordinary city skyline vistas from the property’s 36th-floor rooftop terrace bar. If the weather isn’t cooperating, don’t worry, there are four other on-site lounges that serve libations late into the night.
  • In the searing heat of Bangkok, it’s easy to be seduced by the luxury hotel’s 131-foot infinity-edge swimming pool on the ninth floor.
  • The most luxurious place to stay is the Presidential Suite, which boats its own pools, a spa, a gym, a home theater, a kitchen and a fantastic terrace overlooking the city.

Things to Know

  • Next to the lobby is a small but well-stocked library with glossy books on architecture, design, food and travel for your to peruse at your leisure.
  • You can reserve a session with Park Hyatt Bangkok’s personal trainer at its well-equipped 11th-floor fitness center, which is open 24 hours a day.
  • On the bottom floor of Central Embassy is one of Bangkok’s best food courts: Eathai. The mall recruited some of the city’s most-loved Thai street food vendors to operate here.

The Rooms

  • Uncluttered, contemporary design is the central theme across all of Park Hyatt’s rooms, which range from the 516-square-foot entry-level Park King and Twin rooms up to the jaw-dropping 4,101-square-foot Presidential Suite.
  • Bose stereo systems, TVs in the bathrooms, USB sockets and Nespresso coffee machines are modern comforts in each room.
  • All rooms offer a walk-in closet, a powder room and huge spa-style bathtubs, ideal for a post-sightseeing soak.
  • Each sleek bathroom is stocked with bespoke toiletries by Le Labo of New York.

Nearby Attractions

  • Park Hyatt is close to Bangkok’s premier green space, Lumphini Park, a fine picnic spot that boasts a charming library, a timeworn Chinese pavilion and a monument to Thailand’s beloved King Rama VI.
  • Thailand’s top shopping precinct, Siam, is about a mile from the luxury hotel. Here you’ll find popular malls, including Siam Paragon, Central World and Siam Discovery, where many major international brands sit alongside Thai lines like Rajdamri Gems and Jim Thompson silk products.
  • For a dose of local culture, head for Bangkok National Museum. A 15-minute drive from the hotel, the gallery is one of the largest in Southeast Asia, showcasing a wide variety of Thai art and artifacts.
