Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ expansion in Thailand has taken a significant stride forward with the opening of Best Western Plus Nexen. The property is the brand’s first hotel in Pattaya, the vibrant seafront city on the country’s rapidly emerging Eastern Seaboard.
Slated to open on 1 October 2020, the property is a stylish new midscale hotel nestledin the Naklua district of Pattaya. Ideal for both corporate and leisure travellers, the hotel is located within a short distance to the beach and business centres, as well as impressive attractions such as major shopping malls, championship golf courses and world-class water parks. The hotel’s 164 contemporary rooms and suites are fully equipped with comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms with power showers, flat-screen smart TVs, mini-bars, working desks with universal power sockets and USB ports. The outdoor swimming pool, children’s pool and fitness centre allow guests to unwind, while business services are available in the lobby.
“We are delighted to introduce Best Western’s trusted brand and service standards to Pattaya, one the most essential cities in Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard. Just a short drive from Bangkok and home to a wealth of activities, this seafront city is a great option for weekend breaks and extended vacations. With the industrial zones just a short drive away, this is also a great option for business travellers,” said Olivier Berrivin, managing director of international operations in Asia.
The city of Pattaya is only two hours’ drive from downtown Bangkok, 1.5 hours from Suvarnabhumi Airport, and about 40 minutes’ drive from the expanding U-Tapao International Airport. The area will also soon be connected by a new high-speed rail link.
To cater for the rising demand for accommodation in this up-and-coming region, Best Western is planning to launch a series of new properties under three distinct brands. Following the opening of Best Western Plus Nexen, Bluphere, BW Premier Collection by Best Western and Best Western Premier Bayphere Pattaya are on track to make their debuts at the end of 2020.
