Hilton Hotels & Resorts Opens New “Floating” Luxury Hotel in Vacation Destination Pattaya, Thailand.

On Nov. 29, Hilton Hotels & Resorts opened one of the most spectacular hotels in the entire world. The five-star hotel is sleek and chic and…it “floats.”

The beachfront property in Pattaya, Thailand, boasts breathtaking panoramic views fostered by infinity pools that create the illusion that they extend directly out into the ocean. Aside the stunning 180-degree views that guests of the hotel will be treated to from their individual private balconies, the Hilton Pattay features state-of-the-art technology and luxurious amenities. And coming soon — a trendy rooftop restaurant Horizon, offering cocktail lounge and dining area along with the Hilton brand’s luxurious global spa concept, eforea: spa at Hilton. And if you’re traveling for business, the hotel also includes a grand event space along with four private meeting rooms.

The hotel is described as having “a contemporary, jet-set aesthetic that draws on an abundance of light, luxurious textures, an exquisite neutral color palette, and bold, unexpected design elements ranging from fantastical light fixtures and sculptural elements to porcelain bathtubs on private balconies.” Sounds perfect right? But I guess now you’re wondering, “Where is this floating palace!”

Pattaya, Thailand. The small city is one of the most popular resort towns in all of Southeast Asia. Overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is about 90 minutes from the country’s capital city, Bangkok. Not only is the weather ideal this time of year (sunny and warm), but the city is rich in history and perfect for sightseeing.

The hotel itself rises 34 levels above the new “Central Festival at Pattaya Beach” entertainment complex, the region’s largest beachfront shopping center complete with more than 200 shops and restaurants that include stores like True Religion, Swarovski and Topshop. Hotel guests will have direct access to this extravagant shopping haven through an exclusive ground floor entrance. In addition, Pattaya is also known for its extensive water sports, beach entertainment, golf courses, and music festivals, making it the perfect vacation spot for couples and families alike.

Hilton Pattaya is located at 333/101 Moo 9 Nong Prue Banglamung, Pattaya Chonburi, Thailand. For more information call 66.38.253000 or visit www.hilton.com.
