Trav­el­ers seek­ing out a tran­quil oa­sis amid the bustling Thai cap­i­tal should look to the much-awaited Park Hy­att Bangkok, which opened its doors on May 12. The ho­tel is housed in a 27-story tower at the Cen­tral Em­bassy re­tail com­plex, an eye- catch­ing curvi­lin­ear struc­ture whose fa­cade draws on mo­tifs and pat­terns found in tra­di­tional Thai de­sign. Ac­cess is a cinch, thanks to its lo­ca­tion in the heart of the down­town area and a di­rect con­nec­tion to the BTS Sky­train at Phloen Chit sta­tion. Thai­land’s warm and gra­cious hos­pi­tal­ity finds re­newed ex­pres­sion in the ho­tel’s dis­creet ser­vice and a per­sonal level of care, which al­lows for ul­ti­mate re­lax­ation and peace of mind. When a guest comes to stay at Park Hy­att Bangkok, the team of hosts wel­come them as they would a vis­i­tor to their own home. Guests here can look for­ward to some of the largest ho­tel rooms in the city. En­try-level rooms mea­sure in at a gen­er­ous 48 square me­ters, while the ma­jor­ity of deluxe rooms range from 68 to 177 square me­ters in size. What’s more, the so­phis­ti­cated in­te­ri­ors have been de­signed to cre­ate a calm­ing, in­ti­mate en­vi­ron­ment. High above the teem­ing streets, the spa­ces com­bine clean, modern lines with art­work and fin­ishes in­flu­enced by tra­di­tional Thai craft. Floor-to- ceil­ing win­dows of­fer un­ob­structed views of the sur­round­ing cityscape and let nat­u­ral light into the quar­ters, whose pri­vate spa– like bath­rooms add an ex­tra touch of com­fort to the ex­pe­ri­ence. Re­lax­ation is also the name of the game at the leisure fa­cil­i­ties down­stairs. The ninth-floor pool deck is an ideal place to de­com­press af­ter a long day of sightseeing or busi­ness pur­suits, thanks to the pres­ence of a 40-me­ter out­door salt­wa­ter pool, clad in vol­canic stone tiles from the Philip­pines and sur­rounded by sun loungers, ca­banas, and ter­raced gar­dens. Else­where in the prop­erty, a spa and 24-hour fit­ness cen­ter round out the of­fer­ings. Gour­mands have plenty to sa­vor as well. Seafood en­thu­si­asts should dine at the Em­bassy Room, while the light-filled Liv­ing Room, with its eight-me­ter-high win­dows and out­door ter­race, draws pa­trons for its com­fort food, af­ter­noon tea, and canapés. And with its range of din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment venues on the top three floors of the ho­tel, Pent­house Bar + Grill is a se­ri­ous con­tender for one of Bangkok’s top evening des­ti­na­tions.
