The newly opened Park Hyatt Bangkok is the first of its kind in the Thai city.
As with Park Hyatt hotels in other major cities, the hotel uses art as a focal point with two installations created by Japanese artist Hirotoshi Sawada. The hotel tower and adjoining luxury shopping mall form a three-dimensional figure eight (a symbol of luck in Chinese culture) when seen from above. The facade of the hotel is covered in aluminium tiles, forming a glistening patterned effect reflective of traditional Thai architecture. With an interior designed by New York-based firm Yabu Pushelberg, the space is intended to be reflective of Thai culture and customs.
The Park Hyatt Bangkok will offer lavish permanent residences and world-class restaurants all with traditional Thai influences.
