Thailand-based Onyx Hospitality Group is investing US$100 million to redevelop its North Pattaya site, which will feature the new 406-room Ozo Pattaya hotel, an all-suite Amari wing and the refurbished Amari Pattaya when completed in early 2019.
Located adjacent to the existing Ocean Tower of Amari Pattaya, Ozo Pattaya will be positioned as a mid-scale hotel with the brand’s hallmark Eat and Eat2Go dining outlets, a paperless front desk and interactive kiosks offering destination tips. It will be co-developed by Orion Hospitality, a joint venture between Onyx Hospitality Group and Singapore Hospitality Holdings.
Meanwhile, the 20-storey Ocean Tower of the 45-year-old Amari Pattaya will undergo an extensive refurbishment to offer brand-new guestrooms and suites, an enhanced lobby and arrival zone, upgraded Horizon Club executive lounge and Amaya Food Gallery – a market-style dining concept inspired by Asian street food.
Amari Pattaya Ocean Suites, located adjacent to the Ocean Tower where the Garden Wing of Amari Pattaya once stood, will feature 49 suites in a newly constructed building. Each suite will feature spacious layouts with connecting options, direct sea views, plus residential-style amenities including fully-equipped kitchens and large balconies.
Upon completion, Onyx’s North Pattaya site will comprise three hotels with a total of 752 keys, a new state-of-the-art ballroom, a range of recreational facilities and dining options, enhanced pool areas and re-landscaped gardens. The site is situated a five-minute walk away from the upcoming Terminal 21 Pattaya shopping mall.
