BANGKOK — The first Hyatt Regency in Bangkok is shaping up to be one of the city’s most versatile hotels for meetings, incentives, conferences and events.
Scheduled to open in the third quarter of this year on vibrant Sukhumvit Road, the 31-story Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit will offer an array of function spaces totaling 1,359 square meters (14,628 square feet), with natural lighting and the latest AV technology featuring in all.
The biggest space is on the 5th floor, where a pillarless ballroom has been designed to accommodate up to 1,000 guests or be divided into four separate venues.
Other attributes of the 5th floor include a lobby, waiting lounge, open communal kitchen, isolated smoking area and two more function rooms that can be partitioned into four.
The 5th floor is accessible via an elevator reserved solely for that level, or an escalator from the all-day dining facility on the 4th floor.
On the 29th floor, guests will find a sleek and spacious multi-purpose residential event venue imagined by internationally acclaimed interior design firm Super Potato from Japan.
At night, it will be open to the public as a restaurant and bar with lounges, a study and an outdoor terrace with sprawling city views. During the day, it will be limited to private gatherings or parties including intimate weddings for up to 80 people.
On the 30th floor, a rooftop bar will entice guests with more angles of Bangkok’s immense skyline, an exquisite selection of cocktails, whiskeys and tapas, and a DJ spinning tunes well into the evening.
Another bar will eventually go in on the hotel’s top floor as an additional option for private engagements.
“I’ve spent a good portion of my life in Bangkok and I can say I’ve never seen a hotel with so much to offer from a MICE perspective,” said Sammy Carolus, Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit’s general manager. “It’s going to be in a class by itself.”
Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit was designed by the Office of Bangkok Architects (OBA), a company that has conceived some of the premier hotels and resorts in Thailand.
When finished, the 273-room Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit will stand as the newest 5-star hotel between the Nana and Asok BTS Skytrain stations. Guests can access the Nana stop via a sky-bridge that connects directly to the hotel.
Other amenities include a landscaped garden and water feature at the hotel’s entrance, three food-and-beverage outlets, a 24-hour fitness center, a 23-meter outdoor swimming pool and a plush club lounge.
