Hilton Hotels has joined the Thai marketing
cooperative Golf in a Kingdom: The Thai Golf Experience.
As new hotel partners, Hilton properties across
Thailand - in Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin and Phuket - are now
preferred lodging options, along side some of the country’s top
golf courses, in a variety of stay-and-play itineraries offered
and executed by tour operator Golfasian.
The four Hilton properties that have joined Golf in a Kingdom

of this coastal city, overlooking Pattaya Beach, and situated atop

Millennium Hilton Bangkok:

this coastal beachside town overrlooks the Gulf of Thailand and serves as
home to distinctive mix of dining options, including the Hua Hin
Brewery Company, a former fisherman’s shack dating from 1923.
“I think it’s instructive for traveling golfers in
Europe and North America to recognize that Thailand is equipped
with 5-star hotel brands like Hilton, and Marriott, along with
world-class golf, superb food, unmatched nightlife and a
first-world, modern transportation infrastructure,” said Mark
Siegel, CEO of Bangkok-based Golfasian.
“Of course, there is a difference - Thailand is tropically
temperate 365 days a year, and golfers can spend a week here for a
fraction of what they’d pay in European or North American
