Park Hy­att Bangkok

DestinAsian - - FLASHBACK -

Oc­cu­py­ing the up­per 24 floors of the sin­u­ous Cen­tral Em­bassy tower, this Yabu Pushel­berg–de­signed prop­erty (the first Park Hy­att in Thai­land) is the epit­ome of un­der­stated lux­ury. Its airy, min­i­mal­ist checkin area, in­ter­rupted only by state­ment pieces from lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional artists, pro­vides a wel­come refuge from the chaos of down­town Bangkok. The 222 guest rooms and suites evoke a sim­i­lar feel­ing, and a med­ley of neu­tral col­ors and nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als pro­vides the back­drop for a re­lax­ing stay. Touches like berg­amot-scented Le Labo toi­letries and fresh blue­ber­ries as a wel­come treat re­in­force the idea that op­u­lence can be found in the small­est de­tails, a mantra that re­peats it­self through­out the ho­tel’s de­sign and ser­vice. The semi-au­ton­o­mous Pent­house Bar + Grill, de­signed to re­sem­ble the swanky pad of a well­trav­eled bach­e­lor, brings sev­eral ex­cit­ing din­ing and drink­ing op­tions to the top floors of the ho­tel. With New York–based de­sign firm AvroKo tak­ing the lead in its cre­ation, the highly pol­ished and over-the-top look of this three-level en­ter­tain­ment space would make Jay Gatsby blush; menu prices, how­ever, are sur­pris­ingly rea­son­able for a ho­tel of this cal­iber. —66-2/012-1234; bangkok.park .hy­; dou­bles from US$226
