Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit opening in Bangkok with Sammy Carolus as general manager

The Hyatt Hotels is opening its first Hyatt Regency in Bangkok later this year, and Sammy Carolus, a veteran Hyatt professional and seasoned hotelier, is in charge of this groundbreaking new luxury hotel property in Thailand. We're lucky to have caught up with Sammy in different luxury hotels around the world, including at The Barai in Hua Hin and at the Grand Hyatt Taipei

Sammy Carolus has been appointed general manager of Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, set to open later this year on vibrant Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok. In his new role, Carolus returns to Thailand -- a place in which he has spent more than half of his 25-year professional career -- to lead Bangkok’s first Hyatt Regency branded hotel

Prior to this appointment, he was the general manager at Grand Hyatt Taipei. “After an extremely rewarding experience in Taipei, I am excited to be returning to the Land of Smiles,” said Carolus, who first moved to Thailand in 2003 as director of marketing for Hyatt Regency Hua Hin & THE BARAI. “The new Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit is set to be the jewel in the Hyatt Regency crown and I look forward to welcoming our guests at the grand opening in the summer of 2018.”

Sammy Carolus began his career with the Hyatt Group in 1992 as a sales associate at Bali Hyatt in his home country of Indonesia. He later served as associate director of business development and director of business development at Grand Hyatt Bali. In 2004, Carolus was transferred to Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, where he helped launch several cutting-edge initiatives, including the first residential-style event facility in the Asia-Pacific region and Bangkok’s first residential spa

Six years later, Carolus returned to Hyatt Regency Hua Hin & THE BARAI, this time as the general manager and with the coveted Jay A. Pritzker Award for Leadership, which honours associates who have consistently demonstrated their ability as leaders and mentors at top-performing Hyatt hotels



Set to open in the summer of 2018, the Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit will be conveniently located in the heart of the Thai capital on Sukhumvit Road, with direct sky-bridge access to Nana BTS Skytrain station. Created by the award-winning, Bangkok-based architectural firm, OBA, the 273-room property will feature 21 elegant suites including a presidential suite, designed in a contemporary Thai style.
