Amidst the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, discover a sense of tranquillity as Park Hyatt Bangkok envelops you in an experience that combines highly personalized service in a luxuriously artistic and sophisticated environment
Located in the heart of the Thai capital’s central business district, Park Hyatt Bangkok is a sweet escape from the perpetually congested streets and the constant clamour of the crowd.
Take it all in. The hotel creates a contemporary architectural experience by combining lavish Thai-inspired interiors, curated art, and world-class food and wine with impeccable service. This magical formula is then injected with specially and uniquely Thai experiences that reflect the country’s rich culture, gracious hospitality and colourful lifestyles.
With a heritage that dates back to the 19th century, the singular stone emplacement adjacent to this establishment’s entry is all that remains from what was known as the six cannon- shaped markers. For anyone passing by, it serves as a poignant reminder of history and an indicator of privilege.
Perched atop the luxury lifestyle mall Central Embassy, Park Hyatt Bangkok is housed in 27 floors above the retail complex. The two premises are fused together by a continual looped form that achieves an intuitive merging between plinth and tower. Looking at it from any perspective, you will find that the twisted coil-like structure is asymmetrical in nature and that it forms a 3D figure of eight. This is the brainchild of the collaboration between London-based architecture studio AL_A and Bangkok- based Pi Design.
As with any Park Hyatt hotel, art is considered intrinsic to the experience.
Consistent with this aim, the building’s external façade exhibits motifs and patterns found in traditional Thai architecture. Extruded aluminium tiles achieve the appearance of shimmering moiré-like pattern, especially articulated by the tantalising play of light and reflections along the varying profiles.
As you step into the hotel, the interior design will evoke a sensation of being at home, without discounting its sophistication. It unfolds in a succession of intimate, calm and stylish spaces to create a sanctuary that reflects Thailand’s brilliant culture and elegant hospitality.
There are touches and hints of artwork sprinkled throughout the Park Hyatt Bangkok. The ground floor alone showcases two of Chinese artist Gao Weigang’s thought-provoking installations, namely Up 3 (2016) and I Were You (2016).
A grand and stately abstract fixture Correlates in perfect harmony with Park Hyatt Bangkok. Japanese sculptor Hirotoshi Sawada’s Pagoda Mirage conquers the ballroom, conjuring a mental image of a Thai temple pagoda, raining blessings on the guests as they encounter its aura.
One ultimate and not-to-be-missed piece is situated in the hotel’s Living Room at Level 9, where guests are welcomed to relish in refined international dishes and local comfort food.
While embarking on a gastronomical journey, patrons are again blessed by Naga, another work of art by Hirotoshi Sawada.
Named after the mythical water dragon, it traverses the hotel. It’s graceful swirling, dance-like flow begins in bronze, sweeps into a dark-brown timber through the main Living Room, and settles into a vertical pattern of clear and frosted acrylic along the Veranda. Charming a protective aura over assembled diners, this is serenity in the form of a room.
