This hotel marks the beginning and the end of our trip to Thailand as we stayed in Bangkok for one night when first arriving in Thailand and also our last night before we headed home. We stayed in the Grand Hyatt hotel in Erawan, Bangkok, and it was the perfect place to spend after/before a full day of travelling! When we first arrived in Bangkok it was around 7pm so we grabbed a taxi straight to the hotel and checked in, we showered and changed after a long flight and went to grab a quick bite to eat before getting some rest. Jet lag is so so rubbish as you want to sleep more than anything but you just can’t – we were so lucky to have such a beautiful room so we just relaxed in bed and watched some films until we fell asleep.
The rain shower in the bathroom was insane, it was so powerful and I could genuinely spend so long in there! Me & Rob have decided that we need to get one when we move out (and have become rich apparently?), we also had a lovely bath in our room and big fluffy white dressing gowns and slippers… pretty much sums up my evening haha. Our first night at the hotel was a flying visit as we had a flight the next day to Koh Samui so we got up and enjoyed breakfast before heading back to the airport. The range of food at breakfast was amazing, there was everything you could ever want from a cooked breakfast to muesli, fruit, cereal, pastries, eggs, yoghurts and the list goes on!
The lobby and dining area of this hotel was breathtaking (especially the staircase!) and my pictures really don’t do it justice! When we returned to the hotel for our second stay we arrived about 3pm so we headed to the rooftop pool which was so lovely – it’s so surreal being in a pool in the middle of a city but I actually really like it. Oh, and of course I forgot my camera so I have no snaps of the pool – doh! (Have a peak at the pool here though as it really was beautiful!). We stayed by the pool until around 6pm, we knew we had a long day travelling ahead of us so we wanted to make the most of the weather and relaxation before heading home and the hotels pool area was the perfect place for this!
We had to check out at 6.15am the next morning (ouch) as we had an early flight so we grabbed a quick breakfast and the hotel booked a taxi to the airport for us. The staff were so accommodating at the hotel and really went out of their way to ensure our stay was a great one – I also forgot my Kindle charger and wasn’t sure how I was going to get through the journey home without one but of course the hotel had one for me… amazing!
This hotel is located in the Erawan district of Bangkok which is a lovely area packed full of designer shops and lovely restaurants. We ventured out of the hotels for our meals but didn’t stray too far as we aren’t huge fans of Bangkok, it’s just so hectic! So this hotel was just a pit stop to get some rest before heading onto the next leg of our journey, I’d recommend this hotel as it’s great to enjoy a luxury hotel once you’ve just stepped off of a long haul flight and this hotel does just the job (and more!) It’s around 20 minutes from the hotel and costs around £8 in a taxi and is well worth the trip into Bangkok! If you’re staying in Bangkok then I’d definitely take a look at the hotel and you can book it here.
Have you been to Bangkok before? What did you make of the city?
