THE INDUSTRIAL district of Rayong, on the east coast of Thailand, near Pattaya, will get its first Marriott property by October.
Rayong Marriott Resort & Spa will be the first new international hotel in Rayong in a long while, according to Marriott's Luxury Hotels & Resorts (Thailand) spokesperson Anchalee Chamroontaneskul.
The resort will have over 300 guestrooms, large ballrooms that can be divided into small spaces, spacious foyers and open areas that can accommodate private events, as well as a waterpark. Plans are underway to seek partners to offer teambuilding activities and sports to resort guests.
The resort will target holiday-makers and MICE groups, as well as corporate travellers who have business in the automobile companies located in Rayong.
