Beach destinations are always popular with business events delegates and few are as regarded as Pattaya, a unique bay on the Eastern coast of Thailand less than 90 minutes by road from Bangkok. With its magnificent beachfront location and lush gardens, it’s little wonder that the Amari Pattaya from ONYX Hospitality Group has been able to captivate meetings and conference guests for the better part of four decades.
Yet this popular beach resort is far from content to rest on its laurels and has recently embarked on a comprehensive renovation project that has seen not only its events facilities but also its leisure offerings given a revitalised look and feel.
Set to reopen in May, Amari Pattaya has been given a brand new 620-sqm ballroom capable of accommodating up to 1,000 attendants. Guests converge in a high-ceilinged, golden-hued pre-event space before heading into the grand pillarless ballroom, whose dazzling, wave-patterned lights and state-of-the-art technology are sure to delight delegates.
Smaller groups can also expect to see changes at the hotel’s four newly refurbished meeting rooms that have been outfitted with the latest technology. Meanwhile, those looking to enjoy the resort’s tropical setting can head out onto the 1,000-sqm outdoor events space, The Lawn, which is ideal for open-air film screenings and pop-up events.
Of course, corporate events are far from being all work and no play, and the Amari Pattaya certainly has the latter part covered as well with an all new infinity swimming pool. Delegates with kids can also make use of the children’s tree-house kids club and themed waterpark while they relax by the poolside eatery and bar, Aqua Eatery.
Amari Pattaya offers a total of 297 refreshingly contemporary guestrooms and suites, ranging in size from 49sqm all the way up to 119sqm. Guestrooms, along with the hotel’s Duplex Suites and Executive Suite Ocean View rooms, are located in Amari Tower, while the One- and Two-Bedroom Suites are situated in the separate newly built Amari Suites.
No event or beachside getaway is complete without food to match the stunning setting, and the hotel’s all-day-dining restaurant, Amaya Food Gallery, showcases a medley of Asian and International cuisine throughout the day. There’s even an outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy their meals under the sun.
