For those looking for a new Meeting Room in Sukhumvit, the news of the Hyatt Regency Bangkok being built was worth paying attention to. As the hotel’s September opening nears, the general manager of the property is working on rounding out the staff for the operations.
General Manager Sammy Carolus has been busy in the past couple of months, having named Maria Sitanggang as the hotel’s Director of Sales and Marketing, while WuthivetVetchabutsakornwas named Director of Finance. Both of these appointees are veterans in the business, each with at least 2 decades of experience in their field.
Before joining Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, Sittanggang spent seven years as Director of Sales and Marketing for the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin&TheBaria, as well as also spending time working for Hyatt properties in Bali.
Sittanggang, who started her career with Hyatt back in 2004, says that it’s always been a goal of hers to lay the foundations for a new Hyatt property. She notes that she’s particularly excited for the Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, the first of its ilk in the Thai capital.
Vetchabutsakorn says that he’s excited to work for Hyatt, saying that, when he thinks of the company’s name, he thinks of a company with a strong reputation for respecting and caring for their customers and staff. He explains that that reputation for prioritizing people played a major role for his decision, on top of getting the chance to work in the Thai capital, a city known for being dynamic.
More than just a new Meeting Room in Sukhumvit, the Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit was conceived by OBA, an award-winning, Bangkok-based architectural firm. The hotel holds 273 rooms, with 21 elegant suites designed in contemporary Thai aesthetics, with three dining venues, at least 1,300 m2 of meeting space, as well as a range of recreational facilities for guests, like an indoor-outdoor swimming pool.
The new property is located at the centre of the Thai capital, on Sukhumvit Road, and comes with direct access via Sky bridge to the Nana BTS Skytrain station. It’s the first Hyatt Regency in Bangkok, joining three other Hyatt hotels in the capital; the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit, and the Park Hyatt Bangkok.
