One Million Baht Club

Super tempting deal for 12 month stay at luxury hotel in Thailand.

Since the pandemic struck, hotels around the globe have been getting creative when it comes to attracting guests amid harsh travel restrictions. Even entire islands got involved - like Bermuda and Barbados - in an effort to lure digital nomads.


The latest innovator is a property in Thailand, which is offering a package that allows guests to stay for an entire year. Launched by the Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, the One Million Baht Club includes housekeeping, breakfasts, light snacks, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, plus complimentary parking and club lounge meeting room use - all for one million Thai baht (£25,000) - and there are lots of other perks for year-long residents to sweeten the deal, such as:


The hotel will host a rooftop party for up to 20 people on guests’ birthdays, with two hours of free drinks thrown in. They’ll also get 10 complimentary massages at the neighbouring spa; 10 limo trips within Bangkok; a Viz Black Card membership, which gives discounts and exclusive perks at the best shopping malls in Bangkok; and an “executive” medical check-up at Bumrungrad International Hospital.


On top of all that, 20 percent of the package price gets given back to guests in the form of credit for use in the hotel’s restaurants and bars - around £5,000, or £415 a month.


And for those who get tired of the city, 10 nights at Hyatt’s properties in Hua Hin, Phuket and Samui are also included in the package.


At present, Thailand is on both the UK’s list of travel corridors, meaning arrivals from there don’t have to quarantine for two weeks, and the Foreign Office’s list of low-risk countries.

However, the caveat is that the entire country is almost entirely off limits to international tourists until further notice.
