Hilton Hotels & Resorts have opened a new property in Thailand. It is a floating hotel in Pattaya. And predictably the hotel is called the Hilton Pattaya. It is a luxurious addition to the Pattaya beach front. The property is very smart, sleek and modern and has the advantage that it overlooks the Gulf of Thailand. The new hotel by Hilton offers a fresh and luxurious beachfront experience to the heart of the international beach resort of Pattaya.
The new hotel is located southeast of Bangkok and is just a 90 minute drive from the Thai capital. Pattaya was originally just another village on the Thai coast with the villagers involved in fishing predominantly. It first caught the attention of Americans as an R&R destination during the Vietnam War era. Since then it has evolved and grown into an internationally renowned destination for beachfront experience.
The Hilton Pattaya rises above the new Central festival at Pattaya Beach complex which is the largest beachfront shopping and entertainment facility in the region. It has over 200 shops and restaurants, 10 screen cinema and a 16 lane bowling alley. Guests of the hotel have exclusive access to the complex through a ground floor entrance. The 302 room hotel’s main lobby is on the 16th floor.
