Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed a management agreement with Apex Development Public Company Limited (APEX) for a futuristic tourism project in Pattaya, Thailand. The exclusive 5-star Mövenpick Resort & Spa Pattaya will comprise 300 rooms and suites and is scheduled to open at the end of 2010.
The upscale holiday resort is situated on one of Pattaya’s typically white sandy beaches, 60 minutes from Bangkok International Airport and five minutes from the centre of Pattaya.
Each of the 300 modern rooms and suites at the Mövenpick Resort & Spa Pattaya, which is an integral part of this high quality tourism project, offers unrestricted views of the sea. A second high-rise with 303 luxury condominiums is under construction next to the hotel. The resort facilities include a main restaurant, featuring the popular and much-praised Mövenpick buffets, two speciality restaurants and an entertainment centre.
Resort guests will be able to enjoy a wide array of leisure activities, including an extensive spa and wellness area, a fitness centre, swimming pools, tennis courts, water sports and a Kids’ Club. The Phoenix Golf & Country Club, a 27-hole golf course, is only five minutes’ away. State-of-the-art conference facilities for business travellers are available on 1,500 sqm.
“We very much look forward to the partnership with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts,” says Pongphan Sampawakoop, Chairman of Apex Development Public Company Limited. “With its Resort in Phuket the Swiss hotel group has demonstrated that Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ philosophy is also very well received in Thailand.”
“Pattaya is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Thailand and it is currently investing heavily in its infrastructure in order to firmly position itself as a leading tourist destination,” explains Jean Gabriel Pérès, President & CEO Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. “We are proud of the fact that as of 2010 we will be represented in Pattaya, and we firmly believe that, with APEX, we have found the right partner for this unique 5-star project.”
