Checking into the Park Hyatt’s new presidential suite is all about customised food and luxe details
A brand known for offering understated luxury, Park Hyatt recently opened its presidential suite — the last surprise in store at the property. “This is a chic 180 sq mt urban loft designed by Manhattan-based designer boutique George Wong Designs. We are extremely proud to have had world renowned pianist Yanni inaugurate and stay in this suite, besides also appreciating it greatly,” says Christian Wurm, general manager of the hotel.
Located on the eighth floor of the hotel, this suite offers a beautiful view of the greener side of the city. Step in and you are welcomed by beautiful 3D art, leading in to the living area, which is streaked with silver travertine, accents of royal blue and deep purple. The suite is more like an apartment, with a separate living area, a dining area that doubles as a meeting room, complete with a separate entrance for butlers. Given Park Hyatt’s strong leaning towards art, ther is a lot of it on the walls. The living area has a huge painting of what looks like a fish from a distance, but turns out to be a collage of symbols. This is part of Baiju Parthan’s collections.
“The whole idea of this suite is that you enjoy all luxuries within this place — from delectable cuisine, to meetings, to a relaxing massage — you just don’t need to step out for anything. We have televisions in both the bedroom and in the spa. The guest can enjoy watching a show even while soaking in the stone plunge,” Wurm informs.
Yanni, the first guest to use this suite, which is priced at Rs. 1 lakh a day, gave it a big thumbs up when checking out. After an hour spent in admiration, we’d say he was in the right place.
What to expect
All luxe: The bath sees contemporary stainless steel sanitaryware, complemented by the luxe Miller Harris range of amenities.
On call: Your wish is their command. Yanni, we learn, had asked for biryani, and executive chef Balaji had pulled out all the stops to make it memorable. That said, the team, including a dedicated butler, is ready to cater to every culinary requirement. And everything in the well-stocked mini bar is complimentary.
A tub with a view: The 42 sq m in-room, spa completes the experience with steam shower, massage plinth and oversized stone plunge. Guests can soak in a therapeutic bath as they ruminate over the green canopy of Guindy National Forest pleasantly visible across the oversized windows.
