Onyx Hospitality has signed a management
agreement with Ratanakorn Asset, a Thai real estate company, for
three new hotels in Pattaya.
The hotels will represent all three
of Onyx Hospitality’s core brands - Amari, Shama and OZO - adding
773 rooms and suites to the company’s expanding portfolio.
The planned new-build hotels include a 400-key
Amari Jomtien Pattaya, a 250-key Shama Wongamat Pattaya and an 123-key
OZO Pratumnak Pattaya.
Amari Jomtien Pattaya will
occupy a mixed-use beachfront site in Na Jomtien towards the south
of Pattaya city, with direct access to a community retail mall.
Located in a 30-storey tower with contemporary Thai-inspired
design, this hotel will offer all the signatures of Amari
including the market-inspired Amaya Food Gallery and a Breeze Spa with
treatments featuring iconic local botanicals. Other facilities
include a specialty restaurant, executive floor and lounge, and
beach club. Scheduled to open in 2024, the hotel will also offer
extensive events and meetings facilities, including a ballroom for
up to 1,000 people
cocktail-style supported by a variety of smaller function rooms.
Shama Wongamat Pattaya, located
in North Pattaya, will feature 250 residential-style units in
studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment configurations. The
property will feature an all-day dining restaurant complemented by
a guest lounge, pool, garden and gym. Shama Wongamat Pattaya is scheduled to open in 2025.
OZO Pratumnak Hill will open in 2022 as an 123-room hotel
designed to offer a lively ambience in the public areas, and peace
and quiet upstairs.
