Hilton Hotels & Resorts has opened a floating hotel in Pattaya, Thailand. Called Hilton Pattaya, the sleek and modern property offers a fresh, luxe beachfront experience to the heart of the international beach resort of Pattaya, which overlooks the Gulf of Thailand and is about 90 minutes southeast of Bangkok. Pattaya is a once-sleepy fishing village that first captivated Americans as a R&R destination during the Vietnam War era.
The cosmopolitan, full-service hotel rises above the new "Central Festival at Pattaya Beach" complex that is Southeast Asia's largest beachfront shopping and entertainment facility with more than 200 shops and restaurants, a 10-screen cinema and a 16-lane bowling alley. Guests will have direct access through an exclusive ground floor entrance, but the hotel's main lobby is on the 16th level.
Hilton Pattaya enhances its prime location on Pattaya Beach with 302 stylish, Zen-inspired guest rooms and suites located between levels 19 and 33 that offer panoramic ocean views from private balconies. Rooms are light and relaxing with elegant, modern furnishings done in whites, beiges and light woods, while spacious bathrooms come with separate a rain shower and deep soaking tub. Each room is also equipped with a Serenity Bed Experience, LCD TVs and high-speed internet service. Suites offer floor-to-ceiling windows and separate living and dining areas, while many feature outdoor bathtubs on private balconies. The hotel's infinity-edge pool, which is set amid lush, landscaped gardens, offers sweeping sea views from the 16th floor.
