Pattaya

Renaissance Hotels is planning to open its first resort in the seaside town of Pattaya in Thailand. Located in the attractive and tranquil Jomtien district, the low-rise resort will offer a fashionable beachfront retreat within easy reach of the town’s attractions. The property is scheduled to open by the September 1, 2017.

Stylish and vibrant interiors will wow guests at the 257-room Renaissance Pattaya Resort and Spa. With four room categories available, Renaissance Pattaya will offer some of the city’s most comfortable accommodation, including chic pool villas and spacious Family Suites. Recreational facilities will include two outdoor swimming pools, a kids pool, kids club and a luxury spa.

“We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with Marriott International to introduce the first Renaissance-branded property to Pattaya,” said Vipavan Mahadumrongkul, Managing Director of the Ninesotel. “We saw an opportunity to offer a non-traditional hotel experience in one of Thailand’s most mature tourism markets. The Renaissance brand is fresh and youthful and we feel confident that our location and product will be attractive to couples, families and business travellers alike. With an investment of $87 million USD, pioneering architectural and interior design and the brand hallmarks of Renaissance Hotels, we are optimistic that this hotel will be well received when it launches later this year.”

Inspirational gourmet choices will be available around the clock, as dining options at the resort are set to include 609 Kitchen for breakfast and all day feasting and speciality restaurant, Pebble Bar and Grill, for fine cuts served alongside hand crafted beverages, created by an expert mixologist. R-Lounge will create a relaxing space in the lobby area, where guests can unwind and soak up the buzz of the resort.

The design of the hotel is inspired by the serene beach setting of Na Jomtien and the local fishing village that Pattaya once was. Playful use of wood, veneer and metal finishes in organic earthy tones bring the feeling of the sand from Na Jomtien beach to each space, accented by marine shades of cobalt and gentian blue. The use of local Thai silk from Jim Thompson, cotton, chenille and jute complement the design scheme by adding texture and a feeling of real luxury.

The latest addition to Renaissance Hotels will reflect the brand’s signature approach to feed curiosity, fuel the imagination and excite the senses. Following the Renaissance principle of ‘business unusual’, where even meetings and events offer something beyond the unexpected, R.E.N. Meetings will offer groups a non-traditional experience, rooted in creative sensory meeting design and custom-curated local navigator excursions and networking events. With spaces that can accommodate meetings and events for up to 350 people, Renaissance Pattaya is looking forward to establishing itself as a premier destination for meetings and incentives in the region.
