Earlier this week Expat Life was in Bangkok for official functions, a business dinner and a hospital visit and I stayed at the excellent Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit alongside Nana BTS.
The hotel is still relatively new at 4 years old but has rapidly established itself as a key destination hotel in the middle of Sukhumvit under the stewardship of Indonesian GM Sammy Carolus.
I arrived Sunday afternoon and on Sunday night the 30th floor night bar was throbbing to the beats of DJ’s and filled to the gunnels with 30 something Thai HiSo’s enjoying cocktails and the music of a Belgian private group called ….. that arrange one of the coolest parties in town every Sunday. Tickets are available at …..
Far too old for the likes of that Expat Life enjoyed some delightful views and perhaps one too many cocktails on the 29th floor but I slept like a baby whilst the youngsters upstairs partied the night away.
The following evening the top 3 floors were booked for a private wedding party. This is a GM that realising that room nights are down because international visitors are not yet coming to Thailand in any great numbers seems to maximise his hotels facilities.
I attended a private dinner the following night along with 3 top international businessmen from the famous Khao restaurant. All four of us were suitably impressed by the delicious food and the superb service provided by the hotels staff.
In my humble impression there is no other hotel in central Bangkok that rivals the Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit. I heartedly recommend it and know that you will be as impressed as I always am.
