InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has debuted the group’s first hotel in Rayong, Thailand, the 288-room and 64-suite Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong City Centre. There are nine versatile meeting rooms and ballrooms in the hotel, plus rooftop dining at ELEMENTI, an infinity pool, fitness centre or executive lounge.
Situated along Sukhumvit Road, the 30-storey hotel is 30 minutes from U-Tapao Rayong Pattaya International Airport and close to some of Thailand’s major industrial parks and seaports, such as the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Park or Map Ta Phut Industrial Park. Rayong is also the gateway to island destination Koh Samet’s national parks, seafood, shops and beaches.
Leanne Harwood, vice president of operations, South East Asia and Korea, IHG, said: “Rayong is one of Thailand’s fastest growing provinces and a booming industrial hub. In the last few years, we have seen a growing demand for internationally branded mid-scale accommodation from travellers, who want a comfortable stay close to the industrial areas and ports.
“The launch of a Holiday Inn branded hotel right in the city centre enables us to cater to these travellers who want to stay with an international hotel brand that they know and trust, with quality accommodation that is comfortable and consistent.”
Ian Pirodon, General Manager, Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong, said, “We are proud to be the first internationally-branded hotel in Rayong and confident that our guests will value the comfortable, convenient and welcoming experience promised by the Holiday Inn brand. We anticipate strong flows of corporate guests mid-week, whilst serving as a popular weekend hotspot for Bangkok residents and its surrounding areas.”
To celebrate the opening, the hotel is also offering guests a special room rate from 2,555 THB++ for stays until 31 October 2017.
