Five and a half years ago I made my first visit to the Park Hyatt Bangkok Hotel. At the time, it had recently opened and was very fresh and exciting. Fast forward to now and I was finally returning. I must say that I was excited to come back because my first stay went very well. I also wanted to see what had changed over nearly six years!

In case you didn’t know, Park Hyatt Bangkok is located above the Central Embassy luxury shopping mall. The building is also connected to the Phloen Chit BTS sky train station by a foot bridge. I find it very fitting that such a luxurious hotel is perched atop a luxury shopping mall. From the property it is incredibly convenient to move around Bangkok. That being said, with the amount of shops, restaurants, and hotel facilities inside the building, you honestly don’t even have to leave, unless you really want to!
The memory of the Park Hyatt Bangkok that sticks out in my mind the most is the design. From the exterior to the interior, the design is just flawless. Everywhere I turned I saw stunning beauty. It’s so modern and sleek! Overall, I would say it’s luxurious yet minimally designed with a variety of materials used that fit together effortlessly. Over the years, they have clearly done a great job at maintaining this gorgeous property.
Entering the lobby feels more like entering someone’s living room than a standard hotel lobby, in a good way of course! It’s very cozy and comfortable yet modern and elegant. I arrived in the early afternoon and my check-in process was fairly smooth. I was then escorted up to my 1 King Corner room on the 22nd floor. Everything was just as I remembered it!
1 King Corner
Once I closed the door after entering my room, I felt like I was in another world. A quiet and peaceful setting thanks to the great sound proofing and design. The room had lots of features to take note of including a king size bed, comfortable lounge area, modern outlets and light controls, tea and coffee station, electronic curtains, large working desk, and beautiful artwork.
It was a overall very comfortable place to spend time. The room definitely felt like home!
The master bathroom of this 1 King Corner room was very grand and featured a dual sink vanity, shower stall, bathtub, toilet stall, Bergamote 22 toiletries, and more. All the fixtures were of the highest quality. Just outside the bathroom was the room’s giant closet. I only came with a carry on luggage but could have easily fit a whole family’s possessions in there! The slippers were very soft and I may have taken a pair with me.
Upon entering the room I immediately took note of the strawberry tart welcome amenity! This was beautiful and tasty. In addition to this, the staff delivered a tasty treat each evening throughout my stay. I also noted that the staff meticulously cleaned the room during the normal daily cleaning as well as during the turn-down service. I was impressed!
The Park Hyatt Bangkok had many incredible facilities. One of the main focuses in my book was the rooftop pool located on the ninth floor. The pool was very long and great for swimming laps. As you would guess, it was simply gorgeously designed and also functional. Each time I visited I also noticed that the staff were very attentive to the guest’s needs.
The fitness center was quite well-stocked with all types of high quality equipment. During my stay, I worked out in the gym multiple times and found it always to be very well taken care of and had everything I needed for a great workout.
Pañpuri Organic Spa
During one of the afternoons of my stay at the Park Hyatt Bangkok, I went for a treatment at the Pañpuri Organic Spa. I went for the Thai Aromatic Oil Massage. Once again, I quickly noticed the spa was yet another beautifully designed part of the hotel. From beginning to end the staff treated me incredibly well. The massage itself was super relaxing and I honestly have nothing to complain about. Each stroke was done with intention and in the most gentle way imaginable. I actually was so relaxed that I fell asleep halfway through the treatment. Well done!
Breakfast took place in the Embassy Room one floor below the lobby which overlooked the pool. It was possible to sit both indoor or outdoor. Breakfast was offered in both an à la carte and buffet format. On the menu I found plenty of Asian and Western items to choose from. One of my favorites was the Croissant Benedict. I must say the items were diverse and very tasty accompanied with top-notch friendly service.
On my final day, just before checking out, I enjoyed afternoon tea in the Living Room. I honestly didn’t really know what to expect for this but have to admit that I was very pleasantly surprised. First of all, the Living Room’s interior was gorgeous. It had very luxurious seating options, high ceilings, and impressive artwork. I went for the standard afternoon tea set.
Once the food arrived I was a bit surprised by the presentation. Instead of opting for the traditional tall tower, they went for a shorter version. The food itself was glorious! In the savory side of things, there were lots of flavors and textures to bounce between. Once I made my way over to the sweets, I found the same to be true. All items felt very premium and I’d be happy to have this again! This was all accompanied with lovely service.
Penthouse Bar + Grill
Sitting at the tippy top of the Park Hyatt Bangkok is the Penthouse Bar + Grill. I still had fond memories of my meal there years ago and was excited to return. The interior was very cozy with its dark lounge atmosphere. Just as with my first visit in 2017, the dining room was buzzing with patrons and lots of staff. From the moment I approached the entrance to when I left, the staff did a great job attending to my every need.
As you would probably expect, the Penthouse Bar + Grill had a lot to offer when it came to the meat department. Of course they had other options but from what I tried I was most impressed with the Japanese beef, especially the Kagoshima Wagyu.
To finish off the evening I tried a few desserts, but the cookie dough dessert really shined through as a clear winner.
The bar extends up above the main dining level and has both indoor and outdoor seating options available. No matter where you choose it truly was a stunning atmosphere. You can’t go wrong with gorgeous rooftop bar like this!
Park Hyatt Bangkok holds up to my initial visit and review nearly 6 years ago. It has been gloriously maintained and is still one of the top luxury hotels in the city of Bangkok, Thailand. If you’re staying in the hotel, using the hotel facilities, and eating breakfast, then this hotel is perfect. The only area that I would like to see a little improvement is in the food and beverage department in some of the outlets for lunch and dinner. That being said, I would still highly recommend a stay at the Park Hyatt Bangkok!
