Park Hyatt Bangkok opened its doors in mid-May, marking the first Park Hyatt hotel in Thailand. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of the Thai capital’s central business district. The hotel features contemporary architecture matched by luxurious residential interiors, expertly curated art, world-class food and wine and the refined service you would expect from such a property. Located within the luxurious Central Embassy shopping mall in Bangkok’s Chid Lom, the property opens two years after its first planned launch date. However, it appears the Amanda Levete designed building’s spiraling tower has been worth waiting for. The interiors are designed by New York design duo Yabu Pushelberg who also served as the designers of the brand’s flagship Park Hyatt New York hotel.
Two of Park Hyatt Bangkok’s most dramatic installations were created by Japanese artist Hirotoshi Sawada. ‘Pagoda Mirage’ incorporates hundreds of small, conical copper swirls, suspended en masse to evoke the reflection of a pagoda on water. Equally striking is the ‘Naga’ (Level 9), a series of batons suspended from the ceiling that resembles a mythical water dragon traveling between the pool and internal waterfall.
