PATTAYA, Thailand - Pattaya, the sleepless beach city, is located on the eastern coastline of the Gulf of Thailand. Only one and a half hours drive from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Pattaya is a convenient destination for all – from business travellers, to couples on their honeymoon and families and friends seeking an exciting beach getaway. It is a popular beach resort, as well as a centre of entertainment with vibrant nightlife and extensive shopping. Outdoor activities such as golf, horseback riding and bungee jumping are also highlights of this lively destination and for those who love the water, Pattaya offers scuba diving, jet-skiing, windsurfing and more.

Pattaya Beach, one of Pattaya’s most popular beaches, whose white sands stretch for three kilometers, is pulsating with life and just across Beach Road hotels, bars, restaurants and shopping malls occupy prime locations along the beach front. South of Beach Road is the famous Walking Street, renowned for its nightlife, the street comes alive with music and people as the sun goes down over Pattaya.

For those seeking a fashion fix the Central Festival Pattaya is Asia’s largest beachfront shopping complex and lifestyle destination. Adjacent to Hilton Pattaya and with 250,000 square meters of retail space fronting 111 meters of beachfront in Central Pattaya, the complex features an entertainment facility, a 7-floor cosmopolitan shopping mall featuring a 23,000 sq meter Central Department Store, more than 300 international retailers and several beach-themed restaurants and bars. The entertainment complex is also home to a 25 lane bowling alley, ten screen cinema and an outdoor cinema.

Towering above Central Festival Pattaya is the newly opened Hilton Pattaya which offers an enticing variety of dining and entertainment options. Five new food and beverage destinations located within the hotel provide guests with an unmatched dining and entertainment experience. One of the unique offerings is the only rooftop venue in Pattaya - Horizon. Located on the 34th level of the hotel and due to open in early 2011, Horizon will be serving the latest cocktails and showcasing resident DJs, as you take in the breathtaking views of Pattaya Bay and the bustling city below.

To support the growing demand for quality MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) facilities and services, Hilton Pattaya has been designed with extensive banqueting, ballroom and meeting space equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The hotel boasts a 635 sqm ballroom, with a private balcony and an abundance of natural light, as well as stunning views of the beach. Hilton Pattaya also provides media-ready meeting rooms – furnished with ergonomic chairs, executive safes, compact refrigerators, WI-FI and data plugs. When the meetings are finished and the work complete guests have the option to entertain clients at one of Pattaya’s 20 international golf courses – all in close proximity to the hotel.

“As a popular tourist destination, Pattaya is known for its scenic beachfronts and highly charged nightlife, said Harald Feurstein, general manager, Hilton Pattaya. “Pattaya caters to those travelling for business or leisure and in many cases guests choose to make the most of their trip to Pattaya by attending corporate events as well as enjoying the lighter, laidback part of resort life. We are confident, with the opening of Hilton Pattaya, this resort town will continue to grow as a dynamic tourism hub for all travellers.”
