If you believe the statistics, there are 74 hotels in the 5-star category in Bangkok and the number is rising.
To stand out among the mass offered, you have to be special in some way. Where beach resorts can offer special villas in special locations; the location in Bangkok is just...Bangkok, and let's face it: lower Sukhumvit, Silom or the riverside...a 5-star hotel is superb by definition, no matter where in the metropolis it is located.
New hotels offer exclusive design- ideas, some traditional ones already have excellent bars or the highest open air- restaurant in town...you name it.
Some have an excellent name, achieved by excellent work over the decades...and some just try to take traditional structures and turn them into something exciting and spectacular.
The Grand Hyatt Erawan is one of these hotels, where the managers came up with some innovative ideas, especially when it came to the new design of their meeting- facilities. But one of the most exciting ideas, was to turn the pool- area into a Spa- retreat like no other in Bangkok.
Grand Hyatt Erawan BangkokSix, so called Residential Spa Cottages can be rented for a very special treat(ment): you practically move into one of the luxurious cottages near the main pool, receive your booked Spa- treatment and just stay overnight, in your private bungalow, with a small garden area on the rooftop of the hotel. The interior of the cottages leave nothing to be desired, all amenities are hi- end.
Of course, the Grand Hyatt is also top, when it comes to the “normal” guest- rooms and other hotel facilities. But what makes it outstanding, is the Spa- cottages idea, that is also brilliantly executed.
Fact: located on Ratchadamri Road, many shopping- centers such as Central World, are in walking distance- other attractions are easily reached by skytrain, with the nearest station a mere 5 minutes walk away.
