Hilton to strengthen Thailand presence

PATTAYA, December 3, 2019

Hilton has announced the upcoming entry of its Hilton Garden Inn brand in Pattaya through a management agreement with Honour Hotel and Retail Co. Ltd.

Hilton Garden Inn Pattaya City is expected to make its debut in 2022.

There is currently one hotel managed by Hilton in Pattaya, operating under its flagship Hilton brand. This is the second Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Thailand signed this year, following the announcement of the upcoming Hilton Garden Inn Bangkok in June.

“Thailand has always been top of mind as a travel destination, and with a fast-growing middle class in Asia traveling even more within the region, we see a huge opportunity to expand Hilton Garden Inn’s footprint in the country,” said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, Development, Asia & Australasia, Hilton. “Coupled with its strategic location in North Pattaya, a popular destination for meetings and events, we are confident the hotel will draw both business and leisure travelers alike.”

Situated in North Pattaya, Hilton Garden Inn Pattaya City will be part of a mixed-use development featuring more than 2,000-sq-m of commercial and retail space as well as an adjacent 427-unit residential tower. Located close to Pattaya Beach, a four-kilometer crescent coastline packed with a variety of beach activities, including parasailing and jet skiing, the hotel will also be a short drive from the new Terminal 21 mall and Central Festival Pattaya, the city’s flagship shopping mall, which is home to more than 370 retail stores, restaurants and bars.

Hilton Garden Inn Pattaya City will feature 315 rooms ranging from 26-sq-m to 52-sq-m Two Bay Suites. Guests will have access to an all-day restaurant, bar and fitness center, along with on-site parking.

“A familiar name to many travellers and developers, Hilton is synonymous with solid performance and a strong track record, and it is a pleasure to work with the global hospitality company to launch a new Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Pattaya,” said Chris Cherdsuriya, President, Honour North Pattaya Co., Ltd. “With their experience operating world-class hotels, we are confident that Hilton Garden Inn Pattaya City will deliver extraordinary experiences to our guests.”

“We are thrilled to launch our focused service brand in another key location in Thailand, one of our fastest-growing markets in South East Asia today,” said Paul Hutton, vice president, operations, South East Asia, Hilton. “Pattaya is regarded as one of Thailand’s primary tourist destinations, and with the expansion of the U-Tapao Airport set to boost inbound tourism from 800,000 to 5 million tourists post-2020, we have an opportunity to cater to the projected increase in arrivals. We are confident the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Pattaya City in 2022 will be a welcome addition to meet the evolving needs of these savvy travellers.”

Hilton Garden Inn is part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty programme for Hilton’s 17 distinct hotel brands. - TradeArabia News Service
