Pattaya’s very first Hilton opens on top Central Festival Pattaya

When it comes to beach hotels, Pattaya, dare we say it, has it down pat. Now the Pattaya Hilton (333/101 Moo 9 Nong Prue Banglamung, Pattaya Chonburi, +66 3825-3000) has arrived. The 5-star hotel occupies the top 34 floors of the Central Festival Pattaya, Asia’s largest beachfront shopping complex with its array of fine dining, nightlife and shopping options. Forget the stereotype of a fuddy-duddy Hilton joint, this new address is ultra modern with its sleek-lined design and furnishings. The 300-room hotel boasts million-dollar views of the seafront and rooms come stocked with a host of amenities. There’s also a stunning rooftop bar that’s just perfect for admiring the glorious sunsets over the infinity pool. To mark the opening, some rooms are going for as low as B2,000 ($87) per night. This is for a limited time only, so hurry and log on to to book now.
