Hyatt has announced the opening of Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, marking the Hyatt Regency brand’s entry into the capital of Thailand. Located on the bustling Sukhumvit Road, the hotel is connected to the Nana station of the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) via a sky bridge and offers guests convenient access to nearby shopping malls, office buildings and tourist attractions.
“We are pleased to celebrate the launch of Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, which marks both the brand’s debut in the Thai capital and the successful fruition of Hyatt’s first collaboration with Grand Asset Hotels and Property,” said David Udell, group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “As the fourth Hyatt hotel along the Sukhumvit BTS train line, our strategic brand expansion in Bangkok caters to the growing number of international visitors to the city who are seeking premium accommodations and memorable travel experiences.”
The hotel is located near the Nana neighborhood – meaning “meeting place” – which has traditionally been a multicultural marketplace where people from around the world connect and exchange ideas. Today it offers travelers an immersive experience of Bangkok’s vibrant street markets. The hotel is also easily accessible, as it is only 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) from Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport and 20.5 miles (33 kilometers) from the Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
