The Grand Hyatt Erawan is my hotel of choice whenever I visit Bangkok, and I’ve previously noted that despite the spaciousness, the decor of the rooms is looking rather dated.
I was hence excited to be upgraded to a newly renovated guestroom by celebrated designer Tony Chi during my recent stay in October. Having stayed there for a weekend, my verdict is that the refresh is incremental rather than quantum.
The layout is essentially the same as the old rooms–entrance foyer with bathroom to the side, bed, and finally study–expect that the furnishings are updated with designs that emphasize clean-lines, non-intrusiveness, and functionality.
So while the net effect is not jaw-dropping, perhaps the brief was for Tony Chi–whose projects include the Andaz 5th Avenue, Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou, and Grand Hyatt Chengdu–was to design a theme that is contemporary without being avant garde, comfortable without being boring, and modern without loosing the distinct Thai identity. These, especially the surfeit of the in-room amenities such as fine teabags with an Asian-accented tea set, fruit basket that was replenished daily, June Jacobs toiletries, as well as various objet d’art exuded a plush yet residential vibe.
