As part of a $100-million investment, Onyx rolled out a plan in early June to redevelop a site in North Pattaya, Thailand by early 2019. Co-developed with Orion Hospitality–a joint venture between Onyx and Singapore Hospitality Holdings–the new Ozo Pattaya hotel will be constructed next to the Ocean Tower of Amari Pattaya. As the 20-story Amari Pattaya Ocean Tower is being renovated, the JV will add the 49-guestroom Amari Pattaya Ocean Suites wing to the existing building. Orion Hospitality’s overall plan is to expand the Ozo and Shama brands across the region.
