The design comes together with spectacular views of the bustling, energetic city from numerous outdoor terraces. What is important is what is on the inside and since the opening in 2017, this Park Hyatt in Bangkok is brimming with style that is understated and noteworthy in so many ways and there is always something stunning to admire especially in a luxury state of mind.
The main entrance of the hotel is located at the side of the building and from the ground floor you take an elevator to the 9th floor where the Park Hyatt experience unfolds, starting small and then getting bigger. You pass the lobby bar on the way to reception without knowing what lies within and on arrival at the check-in, you have views of a Bangkok skyline that juxtaposes lots of greenery along the leafy boulevard of Wireless Road and long known for being Bangkok’s most desirable neighborhood.
Our Park King Room was another revelation in minimalist sleek design, but offering every creature comfort you could possibly need, with the bedroom and bathroom offering the same park and skyline views. There was a walk in wardrobe on the left next to the entrance hallway, a separate toilet to the right as you walk into the bedroom; with a chaise lounge situated at the window to pass the time reading or admiring the views and a large ensuite bathroom around the corner that features a striking lotus bloom hand-carved into the creamy stone wall. A spacious walk-in rain shower is inviting as well as the free standing bathtub positioned at the window to also admire the views while having a hot bath with its bespoke bathroom amenities by Le Labo of New York that deliver a sensual touch.
The room interior design is all about neutral colours, chic, modern and contemporary urban living, as the real draw card is what lies outside your window, both day and night, as Bangkok never sleeps and even for those of us that have visited many times, the traffic, the views and the greenery never cease to amaze you, whether it is raining or basked in sunshine, such is the attraction of this “City of Angels". The lighting, materials, space and texture work as a whole and you get this sense of calmness of sensuality.
Of course, one needs to explore the hotel environs and what is outside of the guest room is just as important as what lies within. Wherever you walk internally, there is something that catches your eye, such as designer chair, a stunning staircase descending to renown food & beverage experiences, soaring spaces to accommodate local art that is not shy in grabbing your attention.
The upside down Pagoda Mirage also designed by Japanese artist Hirotoshi Sawada at Level G Ballroom evokes a Thai temple pagoda. This abstract art installation is composed of hundreds of small, conical, copper swirls suspended en masse. Poised in the well of the sweeping, minimalist staircase leading to the ballroom, it rains blessings on the guests as they encounter its aura.
There are a few more interesting paintings and installations to explore within the informative tour. We segued to an signature afternoon tea at the Living Room to savour some of the handcrafted delicacies from salmon gravlax, foie gras & quince paste, burrata cheese, crab meat savoury to some enticing Opéra, Mont blanc & blackcurrant, Matcha croquet en bouche, strawberry & vanilla and ice bonbons served with a premium selection of tea and coffee.
For further indulgence, Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé champagne to add on for the afternoon tea is an absolute delight.
