Sammy Carolus, general manager, Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit

Sammy Carolus has been appointed general manager of the 273-key Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, which is set to open later this year on Sukhumvit Road.

In his new role, Carolus returns to Thailand to lead Bangkok's first Hyatt Regency branded hotel, having spent more than half of his 25-year professional career in the capital. 

Prior to this appointment, he was general manager of the 853-room Grand Hyatt Taipei, where he oversaw the hotel's landmark refurbishment as well as the opening of a brand new spa and two restaurants.

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 initiatives including the first residential-style event facility in Asia Pacific and Bangkok's first residential spa. 

Six years later, Carolus returned to Hyatt Regency Hua Hin & THE BARAI as general manager.

The 273-key Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit will be opening in the summer of 2018

Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit will be the fourth Hyatt hotel in Bangkok, opening its doors in the summer of 2018 in the heart of the Thai capital on Sukhumvit Road with direct sky-bridge access to Nana BTS Skytrain station.

The 29-storey property will be complemented by recreational facilities including an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, 24-hour in-room massage service, a ballroom as well as more than 1,300 square metres of meeting space.
