Attention all digital nomads, the deal you’ve been waiting for is finally here.
How would you like to spend a year working remotely in Bangkok at a gorgeous 5-star hotel with a plethora of luxury perks included like: daily cocktails in the Club lounge, swimming in the properties gorgeous pool, daily housekeeping, unlimited WiFi, food allowance and even massages? What if the price was only $91 a night?
The Hyatt Regency Bangkok hotel is offering guests the chance of a lifetime with their 1-year stay promotion called the “One Million Baht Club”.
Here’s the deal:
Guests pay 1 million baht (about $33,000) upfront for their 365 day stay, which breaks down to about $2750 USD per month, or $91 a day. The deal includes up to 2 adults and 2 kids, making it even more attractive for couples or families.
Now, while $2750 USD a month might seem steep for some remote workers who look to Thailand for a more budget-friendly lifestyle, the promotion actually covers more than you think.
Let’s break it down by monthly cost to see exactly what you can expect to get for your 1-year stay at the Hyatt.
$2,750 a month includes:
- Month stay in a gorgeous Club Room
- Daily housekeeping
- Daily continental breakfast
- Daily evening cocktails and canapés
- Daily dry-cleaning/laundry of 6 items
- $550 USD monthly food credit
- Gym membership
- Use of Club Lounge and meeting rooms
- Use of rooftop pool
- Unlimited Wi-Fi
Other perks over the full year include:
- Free parking if you have a car in Thailand
- Dedicated hotel’s concierge service
- A once yearly private rooftop birthday party at Spectrum for 20 of your closest friends with free-flow drinks for 2 hours
- Use of the hotels limo service 10 times a year, which can be used for airport transfers or just around the city
- 10 massages a year at the hotel’s spa partner “Let’s Relax at the Allez”
- A 10 night vacation at one of the other Hyatt Resorts Thailand – Hua Hin, Samui or Phuket, in the case you need to escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for a while
- One Executive Program Medical Checkup at Bumrungrad International Hospital with transfers
- A $6660 total food and beverage credit (which we show above as $550 a month)
The True Perks of the Million Baht Club:
No extra charges –
A couple could essentially stay in the hotel for 1 year and never have to pay for anything out of pocket except the upfront hotel charge. Since breakfast is included, along with evening canapes and drinks, plus the $550 USD monthly food credit, it would be tough to actually encounter a bill.
If you consider a couple living on $91 a day, with food, accommodation and gym included in one of the nicest cities in the world, it’s hard to not imagine making this your reality.
Remember, there are no water, electricity, cable, internet, or other types of bills on top of this amount.
Great for busy professionals –
You’d never have to lift a finger with the included laundry, housekeeping and concierge services, so you can spend more time on your business or with your clients instead of chores.
With unlimited Wi-Fi, you are always connected, and if you have issues the hotel is there to make it right for you. No more waiting for technicians to come to your house 9 days later to fix your home internet.
The lap of luxury –
The type of lifestyle you can have at the Hyatt is pretty incomparable to that of a normal apartment lifestyle.
You have access to meeting spaces that would cost a fortune in other parts of the world, take afternoon breaks on the 6th-floor outdoor pool, call the limo to take you to the airport, sip free wine while watching the sunset over the city, crush your fitness goals in the insanely nice gym, etc.
Let’s take a deeper look into the hotel itself, the type of room included in this deal, and some of the common spaces.
The Hyatt is a 5-star hotel with an amazing location with direct access to the BTS skytrain and within 1 mile of many markets and shopping malls, like the Emporium. It’s also quite new, opening in November of 2018.
The Club Room is a 376-398 sq ft guestroom, featuring a bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bathtub, workspace, and modern Thai décor with views overlooking the city of Bangkok.
- Walk-in shower and separate bathtub
- 55-inch TV with over 40 TV satellite channels
- Bluetooth-enabled JBL sound system
- Complimentary high-speed Internet access
- Universal outlet with USB port
- Coffee and tea-making facilities and coffee machine
- Floor-to-ceiling windows
- Minibar fridge
- In-room safe
- Pillow menu
- Digital newspaper
The hotel does mention guests can pay to upgrade to the Club Deluxe or Regent Suite rooms if they want something even bigger and more luxurious.
Regency Club Lounge
All guests in the 1-year stay program get daily access to the Regency Club, which is a 2,981 sq ft. indoor/outdoor lounge on the 27th floor that offers stunning views of the city through its floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Daily benefits to the lounge include complimentary continental breakfast, all-day refreshments, evening canapés, free-flow evening cocktails, and spaces to work or socialize.
Located on the 6th floor, our outdoor free-form pool is surrounded by lush vegetation with an outdoor whirlpool, shade/no shade pool chairs, a pool bar, lockers and steam room.
There are 3 restaurants on-site where guests can use their $550 USD/m credit.
- The Market Café (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
- The Lobby Lounge (evening snacks and drinks)
- Spectrum Lounge and Bar (dinner, snacks and drinks)
The Club Lounge also serves free continental breakfast and daily snacks/drinks.
We looked at the menu for The Market Café where guests would likely eat most of their meals to check and see if the prices were over-inflated, but considering they are at a 5-star hotel, they’re actually quite agreeable!
- Pad Thai = $9
- Truffle Scrambled Eggs = $9
- Arugula and Veggies Salad Bowl = $8
- Green Papaya Salad = $8
- Chicken Green Curry = $11
- Fried Sea Bass = $15
- Coconut Ice Cream = $8
While of course food can be found cheaper in the streets of Bangkok, spending your food credit within the hotel will actually take longer than you think!
All in all, the Hyatt’s offering is one that I am sure many remote workers and digital nomads will jump on and it sets the stage for many other hotel chains to follow, which brings much excitement for what’s to come in the travel world for 2021.
If I wasn’t head over heels in love with where I live right now (Mazatlán, Sinaloa) I would be on the first flight to Thailand to take advantage of this deal. As a full-time travel writer, I can hardly keep my Visa in my wallet as I cover this story. It’s one of the most enticing offers I’ve ever seen, especially as we’ve all been missing hotel stays. Sure you can stay in apartments in Bangkok for less, but nothing is quite like the hotel lifestyle.
