The management of Movenpick Hotel and Resorts, on December 15, 2015, opened a new hotel known as Movenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya. Siam Motors Group owns the hotel. The hotel promises a new era of premium hospitality experiences on the pristine Na Jomtien Beach. The new hotel is ideally located since it is situated next to Ocean Marina Yacht Club and only about 75 minutes’ drive from the Suvarnabhumi airport. The 5-star hotel is the first of its kind to be developed in Na Jomtien. The hotel has 262 rooms in total. Andrew Langdon, Movenpick and Resort Senior Vice President for Asia, said that they are delighted to announce the hotel opening, which is so far the fifth facility they’ve opened in Thailand. He also said that they have a long and successful track record in Thailand, and are thus committed firmly to continue investing in the destination for a longer time. Phornthep Phornprapha, who is the Chairman of Siam at Chonburi Co. as well as the President of Siam Motor Group, expressed confidence and said that the facility would be an attractive draw especially due to the fact that the people managing it are Movenpick. He added that this was because Movenpick is a brand that represents quality – a hallmark of Swiss hospitality and one that goes well with guests. Phornthep said that Movenpick is an international brand of high quality and that in almost everything they do there’s always some natural sense of hospitality. Besides, he also said that Movenpick is situated in a perfect location adding besides having a unique culinary flair. The accommodation facilities at the Movenpick Hotel are exceptionally spacious, with all having a panoramic sunset view of the Gulf of Thailand. The facility also has three dining outlets. There are also signature culinary services that include the daily Chocolate Hour that features Swiss Chocolate that guest can enjoy. The function space of the resort has a seven-meter high ceiling and sea view that’s incredible. The reason for this is to establish a facility that suits both local events as well as international wedding planners and meetings. The resort has a banquet facility big enough to accommodate at least 450 guests in a theatre-style configuration or 350 guests when used for a gala dinner style. There is a very attractive outdoor lagoon pool that lies in the middle of a tropical garden. Alongside the pool is a wave spar where the guests can relax.
