Hotel Reviews Art

The Park Hyatt Bangkok opened in May 2017, and is a hotel I’ve been eager to check out. Park Hyatt is one of my favorite hotel brands out there, and the fact that their properties are bookable with points is the icing on the cake. I generally consider Bangkok to be one of the best value cities in the world for luxury hotels, so that makes the Park Hyatt an especially exciting addition.

Booking the Park Hyatt Bangkok

The Park Hyatt Bangkok is a Category 5 World of Hyatt property. This means that to redeem points here you’re paying either:

  • 20,000 points (no blackout dates)
  • 10,000 points plus $125 using Points + Cash (which is capacity controlled)

Since we were traveling over Chinese New Year, the cash rates over our dates were $500+ per night. As a result, redeeming points was an exceptional value, given that I value Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each. There was Points + Cash availability, so Tiffany and I both ended up booking that.

In addition to being able to earn World of Hyatt points directly with The Hyatt Credit Card, World of Hyatt is also transfer partners with Chase Ultimate Rewards. This means that you can earn these points on cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® CardChase Sapphire Reserve® Card, and Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card.

Lastly, I’d note that often redeeming points here isn’t a good value. This hotel sometimes has rates of under $250 per night, and in those cases I’d say paying cash could represent a better value. You can potentially get even more value for bookings here by using Hyatt Prive, which offers complimentary breakfast, room upgrades, and a property credit with each stay, just for booking through a travel agent and paying the standard flexible rate.

Park Hyatt Bangkok review

We took a taxi from the airport to the Park Hyatt Bangkok, which only took about 30 minutes since it was the middle of the night by the time we were through immigration. The Park Hyatt has a great location within Bangkok (as far as I’m concerned), as it’s near many of the embassies, and attached to the Central Embassy Mall (more on that later).

The Park Hyatt has a stunning exterior, which almost looks more like a super-high end store than a hotel. I loved the decorations on the lawn in front of the hotel.

Like many luxury hotels nowadays, the lobby wasn’t on the first floor, but rather on the tenth floor. So on the ground floor was a modern minimalist room with some bellmen, who directed us up to the lobby.

There’s one set of elevators leading to the tenth floor lobby, and then another set of elevators leading from the tenth floor to the guest rooms.


Park Hyatt Bangkok elevators

The architecture of this hotel is simply breathtaking. Once out of the elevator we proceeded to reception, which was down the hall.


Park Hyatt Bangkok lobby

The reception area consisted of two large desks (one on each side of the room). At one desk were the front desk agents, and at the other the concierge.

Past reception was more lobby seating.

Then there was a staircase leading down to some of the hotel’s restaurants, as well as the pool.

The check-in process was efficient, and both Tiffany and I were informed that there were no room upgrades available, as the hotel was booked out. Fair enough, as that did indeed seem to be the case. However, we’d receive free breakfast, and this hotel also has a Globalist happy hour from 6PM until 8PM. So they do go above and beyond for Globalists, because that happy hour isn’t a published benefit.

I was given a letter outlining the Globalist benefits, which read as follows:

The front desk agent escorted me up to my room. The elevators to the guest rooms were down the hall from reception.

I was assigned room 1703, on the 17th floor.

For a standard room I thought my Park King room was gorgeous, though oddly laid out. The room had a long entryway.

Just inside the entrance and to the left was the toilet and a sink, which were separate from the rest of the bathroom. While this is the ultimate first world problem, I found it a bit strange that a brand new luxury hotel in Asia didn’t have a Japanese-style toilet.

Also to the left of the hallway was a good size closet.

Then to the right was the rest of the bathroom, which featured double sinks, a tub, and a walk-in shower.

Toiletries were from Le Labo, and were specific to the hotel, as is often the case at Park Hyatts — very nice!

Down the hallway was the rest of the room, which was nicely appointed. It featured a comfortable king size bed with two nightstands, as well as a daybed.

Across from that was a wall-mounted TV, a desk with a chair, and then a large minibar setup.

The minibar setup was similar to what I’ve seen at some other Park Hyatts, which I quite like. There was also a Nespresso machine.

The room had great views of the neighborhood, including of several embassies.

All around I thought the room was well appointed. It was a good size for a standard room, and I’d say my only slightly negative comment is that I found the layout a bit strange, in terms of the toilet being in a completely separate area from the rest of the bathroom.

Wifi in the room was fast and free.

As Globalist members we received breakfast in the hotel’s Embassy Room restaurant, located on the ninth floor. Breakfast is served daily from 6AM until 10:30AM. The restaurant is located next to the pool, and has both indoor and outdoor seating.

We had breakfast outside every morning, since the temperature wasn’t too bad in the mornings.

Luxury hotels in Bangkok consistently have over-the-top breakfast buffets. This buffet was good, and featured high quality food, though the selection wasn’t as extensive as I’ve seen in some other hotels. Like I said, it was still very good, but I’ve seen better — I would have loved to see more Asian options (curry, etc.). I’ll let the pictures mostly speak for themselves.

In addition to the buffet, you could choose an item from the menu. The breakfast menu read as follows:

One morning I had the Thai style omelet.

Another morning I had the phad thai.

The third morning I just had a plain omelet.

The cappuccinos at breakfast were excellent.

The service was well intentioned, but at times not especially polished.

Right next to the breakfast area was the infinity pool, which had nice views.

In addition to the chairs directly around the pool, there was an elevated area to the side of the pool with more loungers.

The hotel also has a gym, which had a good selection of equipment.

As mentioned above, as a Globalist member there’s a complimentary happy hour, available nightly from 6PM until 8PM. This is at the hotel’s lobby bar, on the 10th floor. The bar is possibly my favorite space in the entire hotel in terms of design (which is saying a lot, because I thought the design was incredible across the board).

The bar also had a large outdoor seating area.

There wasn’t a printed menu for the Globalist happy hour, but rather you could just order wine or beer. It’s nice that they offer this at all, though it would be even nicer if they extended the drink options.

In addition to complimentary drinks, they also offered each of us a complimentary appetizer with spring rolls, chicken satay, and mini-burgers. The chicken satay and spring rolls were excellent, while the mini-burgers were disgusting, and I literally spit them out.

In addition to the breakfast restaurant and happy hour bar, another beautiful area of the hotel is the Living Room, which is right next to the Embassy Room. This is the hotel’s all day lounge, and was a great place from which to work.

While we were looking forward to eating our way around Bangkok, unfortunately I ended up getting sick while I was here (it later turned out to be the flu), so we had many of our meals at the hotel. I had a chance to sample quite a few items on the menu, including the curry, chicken satay, and a caprese salad. All were very good.

The night we arrived in Bangkok my first order of business was to have some phad thai and mango sticky rice via room service. Mmmm….

The first full day we were in Bangkok we also both got massages at the hotel’s spa. I got an hour-long massage, which was exceptionally good, and cost about 80USD. That’s a reasonable price for a spa at a luxury hotel in Bangkok, though it goes without saying that you can get much cheaper treatments on the street.

I’m not usually a mall person, but one other thing I’d note about the Park Hyatt Bangkok is that it’s attached to the Central Embassy Mall. OMG, this is easily the most beautiful mall I’ve seen anywhere in the world. I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was, as I’ve never seen anything like this in the US. There were also lots of great restaurants in the mall itself, in case you want to leave the hotel to eat but don’t want to leave the air conditioning.

Park Hyatt Bangkok bottom line

Bangkok is known for luxury hotels, and the Park Hyatt Bangkok is a phenomenal addition for points enthusiasts. Since we were staying over Chinese New Year paying with points was the better deal, though otherwise it could make a lot more sense to pay cash, since rates are often reasonable.

My favorite thing about the Park Hyatt Bangkok was the design. Park Hyatts in general have modern and minimalist design, and I loved the design of this hotel even more than most other Park Hyatts. Even though I didn’t get an upgrade, I still think the hotel has excellent Globalist recognition, given that they offer a happy hour that they don’t have to.

The service was well intentioned across the board, though in a few cases not very polished. That’s not a huge deal at all, but in terms of constructive feedback, I’d say service is the one area where there’s room for improvement.

Overall this is an excellent hotel, and I’d return in a heartbeat.

Comments

  1. the rooms are really disappointing- holiday inn express park hyatt edition? when i think about some of the standard rooms in other PH properties…

  2. Seeing this makes me content to see that we will continue to stay at our Peninsula Hotel Bangkok.

  3. A truly stunning property on what I believe was a part of the British Embassy and sold to the developers many years ago. I’ve stayed at this hotel a number of times and found the rooms spacious with excellent views, particularly considering the location. The amenities and service were excellent, as were the beds and bedding. My only criticism is of the hospital-like curtains in the hallways and the green carpeting. Otherwise the only other city hotel I’d rate higher is the Aman Tokyo.

    Great review Ben.

  4. Pañpuri is not the name of the spa, but rather a popular brand of Thai air fresheners (which, I suppose, furnished this spa).

  5. IT does indeed look like a beautiful hotel, but there’s something – dare I say it – generic about the place? From the pictures, I don’t get much in the way of a sense of place (other than from the pool), although I guess that’s partly what high end hotels are designed to do.

    But contrast it with, let’s say, some of the older Bangkok properties: The Oriental / Manadarin Oriental, the now demolished Siam Intercontinental, and the soon to be demolished Dusit Thani. None of them have the polished luxury of the Park Hyatt and its ilk, but you know – at every step – that you’re in Thailand, and the country’s culture permeates the hotel at every step. Just the number of locals who go to the Dusit Thani to drink or dine connects it to the city and country in a way that I find the Four Seasons / Park Hyatt / St Regis hotels rarely do.

    Not a criticism – each to their own – but I do wonder how these hotels will be placed in 49 years (like the Dusit Thani), or 130+ (The Oriental) in the fabric of the city…

  6. unless you have a lot of points to burn I don’t think it makes sense to stay at this hotel or most of the big US chain hotels in Bangkok which charge premium prices. The city has a glut of 4 and 5 star hotels that you can get for not a lot of money. Pay cash and save your points for more expensive cities. They might be local chains or independent, but they are every bit as good or better than the US chains.

    I would choose based on location first and foremost, especially given how horrendous Bangkok traffic often is.

  7. Panpuri is a luxury Thai brand of shampoo, candles, soaps, etc. They have stores in a lot of the high-end malls in BKK and even have airport stores at BKK, USM, etc. I’m sure they licensed the name to the hotel for the spa. Fairly common practice, but it’s the internet so it’s more fun to assume everything is bad and wrong.

  8. I had a four night stay in November, they managed to forget to service our room two days. First time we talked to the front desk at 6pm when heading out for dinner, second time we called them at 1pm, 5pm, and it eventually again happened while we were out for dinner.

    The hotel is really beautiful and in an excellent location. But the service is not up to scratch for a Park Hyatt, nor for a luxury hotel in Bangkok.

  9. Glad you liked Central. I went to high school with several children from the family that owns the Central properties in Bangkok. Most of them are now involved in running the business. They’re all great,a nd I’ve had great meals in a lot of the restaurants in the mall you reference.

  10. The whole hotel, including the room and common areas, look cramped and dark. That’s a $100 a nite room in any non-international chain hotel in Bangkok. As for Japanese loos…try any of the Grande Centrepoint, Somerset, or the Davis Hotel…they all have them and rates of less than $ 100. You paid daft foreigner rates to stay at your fav hotel chain.

  11. I stayed at this property for 3 nights in January on a Cash+Points award. Good experience all around, but especially up on the roof and in top level bars/restaurants at night.

    I’d stay there again, but Hilton is opening a brand new Waldorf Astoria Bangkok in July which I am aching to check out…

  12. The mall that’s a part of the hotel complex is sterile and dead. In fact, it more resembles a hospital than a lively shopping experience. We who live in Bangkok stay well clear of that monstrosity.

  13. I have stayed in the conrad white similar amenities and just as nice or nicer rooms. For $70 a night. This is super priced for Bangkok. Their are a ton of 4 and 5 star hotels for 50-80 usd a night many of them just steps from a bts station.

    But for those who are loyal to the brand I can understand wanting to stay. And the pool and living area are very nice looking and a good place to work/relax in lieu of having a suite.

  14. @Lucky, @Tiffany, @entire OMAAT team: many thanks for your years of expert advice. Based on this review, I thought “Hey, never been to BKK. I’ve got some Avianca LifeMiles…” and BAM! for ONLY 77,230 miles and USD 46.56, I was able to book a ANA FIRST Class IAD-NRT connecting to ANA J Class (787 service) NRT-BKK. I seriously thought I was never going to be able to use those purchased Avianca LifeMiles and miraculously, there was some availability. Wow. I can’t thanks you guys enough.

  15. It’s fine. Worth the money? Probably not, certainly not for a significant premium over GH.
    I loved the design, included the rooms ( although a bit too much traffic noise).
    Great breakfast and really nice eating options in the mall).

  16. The menu says “Wanton Soup” – is that a misspelling or just a different (and possible quite intriguing) style of noodle soup I’ve never heard of?

  17. Another great review, loved the high-quality, extensive photos.

    Also, LOL about the mini-burgers. I don’t know why these were bad, but burgers in Thailand are still not quite what you’d expect when you come from the US. The most-consistently good burgers are to be found at the Hard Rock where, I believe, they are shipped in from corporate.

  18. There is no reason to settle for subpar service in Bangkok. So many outstanding properties, including great SPG and Marriott options.

    At least they didn’t stick you with the abbreviated “Globalist” menu for breakfast.

  19. looks cold and corporate to me, if nice enough but nothing about it says Thailand never mind Asia. Over the yesrs of travelling there I have noticed that the top 5 star hotels have gotten more expensive. Personally I always stay at the Sukhothai (amazing service/breakfast/pool/spa) and it is now part of Design Hotels (Marriott) so should be abailable on points – check it out next time you are in BKK.

  20. Agree with what everyone else said about the daft foreigner rates. And you could have got much better food at the basement food court of the attached mall – no need to leave the complex at all. It’s probably the poshest street food in the city so strikes a good balance.

    Btw what’s that pink drink from the spa?

  21. I stayed in an Embassy room (1807) last November and it was swank. Curved wall-to-wall exterior windows — basically an oversize, upgraded room, like an end unit. I’ve stayed at PHT and PHBA, and this new property ranks comparably, in my opinion!

  22. I stayed here in September of last year. My experience could probably be written down due to it being so soon after opening but it was horrendous.

    The design of the hotel is spectacular. To all those saying it looks bad – please go see it in person. It’s a stunning property.

    The first night I was there the mall was having some kind of party and the music was so loud I couldn’t sleep because I could hear it in my bedroom – at 11:30pm. This is especially impressive considering I am hard of hearing. None of the staff bothered to tell me about the music when I checked in or proactively offer ear plugs or offer to move me up to a higher room. After several complaints and calling the manager they finally moved me up to the highest floor they could (the hotel was still not finished at that point, so many higher floors were still under construction) and I could still easily hear the music. Apparently the hotel received many complaints from guests that night.

    I was not told about the Globalist happy hour, nor was I shown to my room when I checked in. I also had no idea that I could sit in a proper restaurant for breakfast – when I went down to get breakfast I went through the Living Room area and saw that there were some people eating breakfast there. None of the staff seemed to want to talk to me so I just sat down there assuming this was the breakfast area. Eventually someone came and brought me a menu and I ate there on the couch. Lastly, either the full breakfast buffet was not open or nobody bothered to show me the area near the open kitchen, but I only ever got food from that small area where they have smoothies.

    Overall – very beautiful property, but they need someone with common sense to step in and manage service.

  23. My wife and I stayed in the Grand Hyatt a couple of months ago and we were extremely disappointed that all of the street vendors had been driven away, which was what gave the area some character in the first place. Were there street vendors selling great food outside the hotel?

  24. As Neil S points out above, Panpuri is an international luxury brand.

    Their main site is here: http://panpuri.com – Sorry to yell, BUT DO NOTE THAT THEY PLAY SOUND BY DEFAULT SO EITHER DON’T GO TO THE LINK OR MUTE YOUR LAPTOP IF YOU’RE IN A CROWDED AREA.

    They also have a standalone location in the Gaysorn Village mall right across from the Grand Hyatt/Erawan shrine. It used to be on the second or third level, but now is on the lowest level. Great for picking up candles, diffusers, etc. Then upstairs they have a larger full-service spa you can see here: http://www.panpuriorganicspa.com <–That site is sound-free fortunately.

  25. This hotel is my new favorite in Bangkok. At the risk of stupidly complaining about luxury, the other two I’ve stayed at, the Mandarin and Peninsula, are both really dated, I don’t get the hype about them. I actually had phenomenal service here, they paid for my car to the airport as compensation for their getting the closing time wrong of one of the spots I was headed to, and I remember one of the bellmen walked with me for what was literally five minutes to the turn off to Gaggan (amazing, and leaving soon!) rather than just pointing me in the right direction. The rooftop bar was good too, even in a city obsessed with rooftop bars.

  26. Ben, your review is pretty spot on. Couple of observations (building on the sentiments you shared in your post):

    – This property is stingy with Globalist upgrades, same experience as you here… Regarding room configurations, the odd shape of the property lends itself to strange room designs (not your cookie cutter layout as typically found in hotels)
    – I concur that the service needs some serious attention; it’s not up to par with its 5 star counterparts in Bangkok. I found that many requests got lost in translation.
    – While the physical property is over the top stunning, there is definitely a “cold” element to the overall experience. It certainly doesn’t offer the warmth of the MO or other Bangkok properties. I personally loved the former Four Seasons Hotel (now Anantara) as it had wonderful lushly landscaped outdoor spaces and a wonderful convergence of a city resort feel (which you don’t get IMO at PH Bangkok).
    – While the pool area is jaw dropping, it’s quite impractical in terms of location. The only entrance was off the (very formal) Living Room Area, which I felt odd walking down in my swimsuit. We also encountered quite a bit of wind, but this could have just been bad timing.
    – The mall is spectacular as you mentioned, although I still preferred the location of Grand Hyatt- that extra couple of blocks made a difference in terms of convenience

    All in all, this property can be a steal if timed right. Bangkok’s over crowded 5 star hotel scene makes this destination ideal for those seeking 5 star luxury at 3 star prices! I always love to compare the type of hotel experience you would get in the US for the same price (can you say… Hilton Garden Inn??)

  27. Nice review, Lucky! I had high hopes for this hotel! However, from what I could see not impressed. We were going to stay at this hotel last May, however opening was pushed back so we ended up at the St. Regis.

    Very happy with our standard room and the hotel was beautiful. Nothing like a $200/night St. Regis!

  28. Doesnt reflect much Thai personality to me, seems pretty sterile and basic. When in Thailand I tend to prefer more cultural hotels.

  29. Dear God those photos of the food. It’s 1am and I’m starving now!

    We stayed at the hYatt Regency many years ago in Bangkok and we were so impressed with the food in that hotel, but looks like the Park easily has it beat.

  30. I love the Central Embassy Mall. It is not as crowded as most Bangkok malls. The bookstore is just amazing. Bangkok has many malls that are much nicer than any malls in America.

  31. Wondering what other five star or better four star hotels in Bangkok are often under a hundred dollars, or close. Thank you

  32. @Andrew Berlin – plenty of choice in that category if you look outside the big Western brands. Personally I can recommend the Maduzi, a small boutique hotel. Much more luxurious than the official 4.5 star rating.

    For international brands, you can try the various Novotels ( the most convenient one is probably the Siam Square one ) or the Mercure/Grand Mercure.

    For a little more, say about 150usd, you will be spoilt for choice among 5stars, eg Renaissance, Conrad, Como, Pullman Grande.

  33. Technical and more general question. When the front desk staff walk you to your room, does one tip? (Assuming they are also not carrying your bags.)

  34. I wish I could afford to stay there someday. 😀

    I’ve only visited the hotel’s lobby when I was in BKK and I really loved every detail of it…

  35. @kimpossible

    No tipping. Not for the front desk staff walking you to your room, nor to the one bringing your luggage.

  36. This Park Hyatt is a very nice hotel but a hotel like the Park Hyatt Saigon is my preference. Taking an elevator to check in is a pain. And there is no lobby unlike the Grand Hyatt Bangkok. The standard rooms at the Park Hyatt are better than the Erawan hotel though.

    When I stayed there the breakfast buffet was in two rooms (again somewhat of a hassle), and I agree the buffet was not as extensive as many other hotels. The Park Hyatt also claims to be connected to the Chit Lom BTS station. That is a real stretch. It is easier to get from the Westin Grand to Asok, and the Westin makes no claim.

  37. @John
    The buffet still spans 2 rooms: the cold things ( bread, fruit, cold meats, yoghurt, juice, pastries etc) are in the smaller room; the hot things are in the larger area. So nothing has changed. I think that layout is a bad design choice.

  38. That mall connected to Park Hyatt is not even close to as nice as he mall under the Conrad Hong Kong.

    All Park Hyatt’s have the ultra modern sterile, boring feel. I did like the one in Sydney though. There’s a ton of amazing hotels in Bangkok. This one is a waste. Maybe good as a one time thing to check it out. Grand Hyatt has more Charachter. Even the new Marriott Marquis looks like it offers better food and beverage. The highlight of the Park Hyatt is clearly the pool.

    Also try—Okura Prestige Bangkok. Under $200 per night , beats every Ritz or Park Hyatt I’ve eve stayed at. Just stay in a club room.
