From Ao Nang, we took a 90 minute flight to Bangkok DMK on Air Asia and hopped in a licensed taxi, which took us to the Grand Hyatt Erawan in Bangkok for about $7. I used a couple of premier certificates and got two connecting rooms for a night. The rooms were super nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.
Diamond Status 17th floor Lounge access made our stay wonderful – everything was lovely – from Lemongrass Tea to a good breakfast and appetizers and drinks in the evenings. There was also a good fitness center and spa on the 5th floor, and we took advantage of the hot & cold jacuzzis, steam and sauna rooms.
The hotel is central to a lot in Bangkok and next to the Erawan Shrine – where you can watch Thai traditional dances throughout the day. It’s also walking distance to the Central Shopping Center and night market – where there are tons of places to eat and shop.
The service at this Hyatt was very good and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Then took a taxi (475 THB, about $12) to BKK airport for our flights back home.
