Hyatt Regency in Bangkok

When flying to Asia, one of my common first stops is Bangkok in Thailand. I find Bangkok to be a great launching point to other Asian destinations. Also, as I've mentioned in many other posts, Thailand is my favorite country, other than the USA.


I've stayed at a lot of hotels in the Bangkok area, But over time, my favorite has become the Hyatt Regency on Sukhumvit. It is my favorite for several reasons. It's in a great location with lots of great street food and street shopping. It is a great hotel with a fantastic club lounge to which I get free access with my Globalist status. I often get upgraded to these fantastic suites with great views of the city. This last one is the one I will post about now.

One of the good things about staying in nice Hyatt hotels in Asia, is there is not a lot of competition with other globalist members like there is in the USA. That means I'm more likely to get these incredible rooms such as I will feature in this post. On this particular day, I received a corner room suite on the 20th floor of this hotel.




Well, let's start with the room itself. I was gifted a corner suite on the 20th floor, room 2006. And what a great room!





The bedroom was surrounded by floor to wall windows on two sides of the room. All views overlooking the city of Bangkok. Some views from the hotel are better than others in this hotel, and I believe I had the best views of the city from this room.



Separate from the bedroom was a living area with an additional TV and a different view of the city. It also had its own private bath, separate from the large master bath.


But, to me, the master bathroom was the most impressive:



No, I'm not a bath person as I always take showers, but a view from this bathtub could change my mind. Fantastic views of the city while you're bathing. The windows are tinted so you can only see out and nobody can see you while you're bathing (at least that's what I think).



Again, views from both walls of this corner suite in the bathroom.




This may not be the best room I've had in my travels, but it certainly had a huge wow factor!


The hotel boasted a huge gym which was never crowded during my stay. I tend to go to the gym early in the mornings, when it is usually most popular, but I encountered no issues with crowding during this early time of day.




Near the gym, on the fourth floor of the hotel, is located the pool area. I never encountered any crowds in the pool area during my stay, or even in past stays.


The most impressive feature of the pool is the views of the city.




I like the way they added the greenery and landscaping to the fourth floor of the pool area.







Breakfast was complimentary each morning and it was huge! So many choices covering so many ethnic foods. Come join me for breakfast.









Ah, what to choose? I guess I'll just have it all!!!! Just kidding. Here's my choice today:



Not seen here is some wagu beef noodle soup I ordered off the menu. There is a limited menu that they cook to order in addition to the buffet, all complimentary for Globalist members.


Lastly, I'll cover the Club Lounge. This is also complimentary for Globalist members. It is possible to take breakfast in the club lounge or in the larger dining room area downstairs. When there is a choice, I always choose the larger downstairs versus the more exclusive club lounge, because the choices are so much more abundant downstairs. Technically, Globalist members are supposed to be restricted to the club lounge area, but this hotel allows the choice.


The club lounge offers complimentary soft drinks throughout the day. In the afternoon, starting at 2 PM, they offer light snacks, and tea. But it's the evening cocktail time where I find the most value. I'm not really a drinker, so I'm not there for the cocktails, but they do serve a complimentary dinner there. I take advantage of that every night.

This hotel delivers tremendous value at just 8000 Hyatt points per night. For the quality of the hotel and for the services provided, this is really an incredible deal for Globalist members. When I first started traveling to Bangkok, I used to stay at the Grand Hyatt hotel not far from this one. But because of the incredible upgrades I've been getting, and the lower point value required for this hotel, this is now my hotel of choice in Bangkok.


P.S. I just recently found out that the point requirement will increase by 50% to 12,000 points for this hotel starting Match 26,2024.

The pool doesn’t need to be heated in Thailand, it’s already hot enough! Thanks for comment.
