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 countrys 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 include:

 Hilton Pattaya: Located in the heart of this coastal city, overlooking Pattaya Beach, and situated atop the new Central Festival Pattaya Beach complex, with its 200 international-caliber shops, restaurants, cinemas and recreational facilities.

Millennium Hilton Bangkok: Standing on the banks of the Chao Praya River and boasting sweeping city views of the Thai capital.

Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa: The resort is set on Karon Beach and comprises 75 acres of lush tropical gardens.

 Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa: A 17-story tower in the center of 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 fishermans shack dating from 1923.

I think its 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 theyd pay in European or North American destinations.

Play and Stay options through Golfasian are available at some of the best courses in Thailand including:

- Banyan Golf Club in Hua Hin, voted top new course in Asia by readers of Asian Golf Monthly in 2009
- Chiang Mai Highlands Golf & Spa Resort, recently voted the top course in Southeast Asia by SEA Globe magazine.
- Muang Kaew Golf Club, a lush urban retreat in the heart of Bangkok.
- The Old Course at Siam Country Club in Pattaya, host of the 2010 Honda PTT LPGA
- Siam Country Clubs Plantation Course, host of the same LPGA event in 2009
- Thai Country Club in Bangkok, voted Best Championship Course in Asia, as voted by Asian Golf Monthly readers in 2008.
- Black Mountain Golf Club, just three years old but already a bona fide championship layout, having played host to the Asian Tours Black Mountain Masters in 2009.
