Designed by New York-based firm Yabu Pushelberg, the recently opened Park Hyatt Bangkok uses art as a focal point.
Located in the centre of Bangkok’s key shopping, business and entertainment districts, Park Hyatt Bangkok is housed in the top 24 floors of a twisted-coil structure atop the Central Embassy fashion, dining and lifestyle destination.
With two installations created by Japanese artist Hirotoshi Sawada, interiors reflecting rich Thai culture and customs.
Sawada’s art includes the ‘Pagoda Mirage’ in the ballroom and the ‘Naga’ which is a series of batons suspended from the ceiling resembling a mythical water dragon traveling between the pool and internal waterfall.
The building is a curvilinear, twisted-coil structure where the floor plan forms a figure of eight. The facade of the hotel is completely covered in aluminium tiles, forming a patterned effect reflective of traditional Thai architecture.
The Park Hyatt Bangkok also offers a garden terrace with a 40-metre saltwater pool.
The hotel features 12 different event venues including a pillar-less ballroom; five salons and The Apartment as well as high-end permanent residences.
Park Hyatt Bangkok houses 222 guestrooms, including 32 suites, all with unobstructed views of the capital.
The interiors have been designed to embody ‘liveable luxury’, featuring a backdrop of natural materials punctuated with Thai accents. The bathrooms have been conceived as a private spa, and feature a separate soaking bathtub and rain shower; an illuminated make-up mirror; and bathroom amenities by New York brand Le Labo.
