Rates will start from $300 USD a night and will feature a variety of all-day dining and specialty restaurants as well as a lobby lounge and specialty lounge, a restaurant with panoramic views of downtown Bangkok. Additionally, the hotel will feature a 15,515 square feet of meeting space and hotel amenities including a spa, business center, fitness room and swimming pool.
“There is fierce competition, but the prime location among embassies and commercial areas will make it competitive with other hotels,” says Lary M.K. Tchou, managing director of Hyatt International Asia Pacific.
Designed by architect Amanda Levete of London, the building has developed a unique, twisting coil for the combined hotel and retail space, creating a “Stairway to Heaven” appearance.
