Marriott prepares to open first Renaissance Resort in Pattaya, Thailand

Marriott's Renaissance Hotels & Resorts brand will open its first resort in the seaside town of Pattaya in Thailand. Located in the Jomtien district, the low-rise resort is scheduled to open by September 1 this year.

“We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with Marriott International to introduce the first Renaissance branded property to Pattaya,” the resort's owner, Vipavan Mahadumrongkul, managing director of The Ninesotel Co., Ltd said in a statement. ”We saw an opportunity to offer a non-traditional hotel experience in one of Thailand’s most mature tourism markets. With an investment of $87 million, pioneering architectural and interior design and the brand hallmarks of Renaissance Hotels, we are optimistic that this hotel will be well received when it launches later this year.”
The 257-room Renaissance Pattaya Resort & Spa will have four room categories available. The design of the hotel is inspired by the beach setting of Na Jomtien and the Pattaya's history as a fishing village. Wood, veneer and metal finishes in organic earthy tones bring the feeling of the sand from Na Jomtien beach to each space, accented by marine shades of cobalt and gentian blue. The use of local Thai silk from Jim Thompson, cotton, chenille and jute complement the design scheme by adding texture.
