IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) has partnered with Asset World Corp Public Company (AWC) once again to launch its second Kimpton property in Thailand.
Opening in early 2028, the 193-key Kimpton Pattaya will be located in central Pattaya, just a 30-minute drive to U-Tapao Rayong Pattaya International Airport and 60 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
Facilities include four restaurants and bars, meeting venues, fitness centre, spa and pool with easy links to a community mall.
The hotel will be a part of the Aquatique, a concept devised by AWC which will be a first-of-its-kind in Pattaya offering a variety of attractions and comprise an array of commercial spaces including a shopping mall, hotels, a theme park, performance art space, and F&B seafood market, located nearby Pattaya’s beach.
Rajit Sukumaran, managing director, South East Asia and Korea, IHG said: “This will be the fifth Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants property signed in Thailand which shows the confidence owners have in the brand. Together with Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, Kimpton Kitalay Samui and the upcoming Kimpton Khao Yai and Kimpton Hua Hin, the brand already has a strong following among affluent and discerning travellers.”
Wallapa Traisorat, CEO and president, AWC said: “Located in AWC’s mega mixed-use project in Pattaya, as part of the Aquatique, the Kimpton Pattaya will help elevate the area to a new level of luxury with a world-renowned hotel operator, and a variety of activities in the complex, to help create long-term value, and enrich the surrounding communities and society.”
