TWO years after the opening of Rayong Marriott Resort & Spa (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 26, 2011), more international-brand hotels are expected to launch in the province of Rayong, an industrial hub located on Thailand’s eastern seaboard.
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Felicity Asset have signed an agreement to build Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong City Centre, the first IHG hotel in Rayong, adding to the 16 existing IHG hotels in Thailand.
The 300-room property will be situated in Rayong’s city centre adjacent to the Laemtong Shopping Mall, located within close proximity to 10 of Thailand’s major industrial parks, including the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Park and Map Ta Phut Industrial Park.
The hotel offers a combination of 240 guestrooms and 60 suites tailored to guests staying for longer periods. Other facilities include an all-day dining restaurant, a rooftop signature restaurant and bar, meeting facilities, a swimming pool, pool bar and fitness centre.
Pattamaporn Nokhong, managing director, Felicity Asset, said: “Rayong attracts a large number of business travellers due to its close proximity to some of Thailand’s major industrial parks. The hotel, situated in the middle of the city centre, is a perfect location for those staying overnight or longer.”
