Review – Park Hyatt Bangkok

From the onset of our trip planning, we were already amazed by the architecture of the Park Hyatt Bangkok. Coincidentally, the hotel was set to be open during our time in Bangkok, so we were pretty determined on staying here.

From the airport, it was about a 40 minute taxi ride to the hotel entrance. Bangkok traffic is just insane! As soon as we stepped out of the taxi, we were greeted by no less than three hotel staff who were as friendly as could be. We were led inside while our luggage was taken care of, and we were given a luggage tag for check-in.

The ground floor of the hotel reminded of a high-end art museum. The actual lobby and reception are located on the 10th floor, above the connected Central Embassy Mall. We were directed to a set of elevators and escorted up to the lobby floor, where we were greeted by more friendly staff at the check-in desk.

Park Hyatt Bangkok Standard King Room

After a quick confirmation of our reservation, we were led upstairs to our room 2208, which is a standard King room, where we finished up the check-in process and were given a tour of our room and room features.

Upon entering the room, on the right side was the king bed, flanked by two side tables. Behind a divider wall (which had beautifully decorated glass panels) was a walk-in closet area.

A large TV was mounted on a pivot stand, while an arm chair and ottoman sat beside it in the corner. Large, full length windows lined the entirety of the room, making it feel that much more open. The view from the room was alright – it was mostly filled up by the two tall buildings on the other side of the street, one of which was The Okura hotel, which we initially considered staying at.

Further into the room on the left was an extremely spacious bathroom. A double sink was available which is always appreciated. A free-standing bathtub sat to the side, featuring Le Labo (Bergamote 22) amenities.

The toilet was found in its own stall, and beside that a large walk-in shower was available as well, complete with a rainfall shower head.

In the evening, one of the hotel staff would come to the room to offer turn-down service. This included setting up the bed, placing down new, comfortable slippers, and stocking up the side table with fresh bottled water and a glass. It was a very simple service, but felt very personal and thoughtful.

Breakfast Service

Our room rate didn’t include complimentary breakfast, but we decided to try out the breakfast buffet the first morning. The breakfast is held on the 9th floor restaurant, just down these beautiful set of stairs from the lobby (of course you can also get there via elevator).

The seating area was really beautiful, featuring tall ceilings and interesting hanging art. Some of the following shots were taken the night before, but during the morning the area was naturally lit, which I always appreciate.

You could also choose to sit outside in the patio, which was equally nice.

We gave our room number to the host and were directed towards a 2-seater table very close to the hot foods buffet area. You could either pay 850 Baht (~$34 CAD) for “The Park Breakfast” which includes the full buffet and your choice of one à la carte option (see menu below for full choices), or you could skip the buffet and just order from the menu itself. We opted for the buffet, and selected the Pad Thai specialty dish.

The hot food items consisted of pretty standard choices, such as bacon, sausages and stir-fried chicken and veggies, along with some dimsum. Personally I enjoyed the cold food selection more, which included choices like smoked salmon, a variety of salad bowls, cereals, a huge assortment of pastries and bread, several types of cheese, ham and salami and a diverse selection of fruits. There was also a smoothie bar where you could customize your perfect smoothie blend!

Infinity Pool

Directly outside from the restaurant was the swimming pool. There were a bunch of lounge chairs right in front of the pool, and more along the side on an elevated area, which also included a couple of cabanas. The pool provided nice views into the surrounding city.

Fitness Center

A fitness center is available on the 11th floor. I don’t frequent the gym much, but it seemed pretty well equipped.

Rooftop Bar

On the top floor of the hotel there is a rooftop bar where you can enjoy drinks and snacks while enjoying views of the Bangkok skyline. There is an air-conditioned indoor area that contains booth seating and bar seating, as well as an open-air upper floor. We chose to stay indoors as it was still quite stuff outside even at night.

Central Embassy Mall & Accessibility

The Park Hyatt Bangkok is connected directly with the Central Embassy Mall as well as the metro station, making it super convenient. The mall is a bit on the higher end in terms of shopping, but there are plenty of affordable food options including restaurants, cafes, bars, as well as a very trendy food court area on the top floor. Throughout our three day stay in Bangkok, we ate in this mall several times.

In Summary

My experience at the Park Hyatt Bangkok was nothing short of exceptional. Every inch of the hotel was beautifully designed and furnished. The standard King room exceeded my expectations in terms of the layout, decor and amenities. The service provided by the hotel staff was among the best I’ve ever experienced at any hotel. While the breakfast buffet could have had a bit more variety, everything tasted delicious and fresh. I loved the infinity pool area, as it was the perfect place to sit back and unwind. The convenience provided by the connected mall and the accessibility of the metro was great. I can’t recommend this hotel enough if you are travelling through Bangkok.
