CHECKING IN | HYATT REGENCY BANGKOK
Having opened its doors in 2019, The Hyatt Regency Bangkok is one of the latest additions to the luxury hotel group and stands tall in the city with 31 floors. Inside, the vibe is like a modern Thai house, dedicating its design to the golden Thai era through the colour scheme, furniture and decoration. There’s historical touches too, from old imagery of Bangkok decorating the walls to authentic coconut cutters used as ornaments in the restaurant.
The hotel has 273 rooms, which includes 21 suites, all of which come with epic floor-to-ceiling windows. We checked in to a deluxe king room on the ninth floor. Similar to the public areas the room had a modern luxe look to it, complete with a marble top bathroom and 55 inch TV. We were obsessed with our stand alone tub, which was huge and positioned by the floor to ceiling window allowing us to watch over the city whilst having a soak.
There’s loads of tech wizardry too, with blinds controlled by remote control and room doors opened with your phone! Rooms also come equipped with a smart phone, which you can use to explore the city during your stay.
Breakfast is served in the hotel’s Market Cafe and has a large spread to choose from. Not only do they have traditional food including pad Thai and egg fried rice, but there’s everything else you can imagine too such as ramen, Indian curries and British fry-ups. If you are looking to get your fix of vitamins then check out the make your own juice section, which allows guests to pick and choose fruit and vegetables from their market style counter and get them juiced by the resident juicer.
With Bangkok’s humidity and hot weather a pool is essential. Luckily Hyatt Regency have got a pretty mega one located on their sixth floor. The large infinity pool overlooking the city is surrounded by leafy foliage, has two outdoor jacuzzis and a pool bar. There’s also an indoor steam room and a 24-hour gym if you wish to make the most of your jet lag.
Right at the top of the building on the 30th floor is Hyatt’s Spectrum rooftop bar. Here you can escape the hectic streets and enjoy cocktails with a live DJ and stunning 360-degree views of the city. If you’re lucky enough to stay on an evening where the weather is clear then we’d recommend visiting at around 6:30pm and watching the sun set over Bangkok.
With its prime location, luxe rooms, and jaw dropping views of the city we would recommend you add Hyatt Regency to your list of places to stay in Bangkok. And as with most places in Thailand, 5-star luxury is a lot cheaper than other places in the world, with rooms at the Hyatt starting at around £200 a night.
