Transforming Pattana into a Leading Sports
Training Hub - Interview with EVP
The Pattana Golf Resort and Sports Hub in Sriracha,
Chonburi, Thailand is undergoing a major transformation.
The owners of what started off as an impressive
golf course and resort some 13 years ago, are looking to turn Pattana - just 90 minutes from Bangkok, into one of the leading
sports hubs in not just Thailand, but the region.
Juangroongruangkit family has big plans that include training
facilities for world-class football teams, an Olympic size
swimming pool, a dedicated 6-km cycling track around the perimeter
of their land, comprehensive training facilities for the world's
best triathletes, and even, perhaps, a brand new hotel specifically
designed for athletes, and much, much more.
And that's not all, Pattana has just opened FAME
- which stands for food, art, music and entertainment - a
destination in itself that includes a coffee shop, Japanese
restaurant with dedicated Teppanyaki stations, a sports bar that
serves pub food and a wide range of regular and craft beers, a
noodle restaurant, an art gallery and a piazza which is ideal for
product launches or a variety of other events.
With so much happening at Pattana, Steven Howard
of TravelNewsAsia.com sat down with Ms. Rujirapun
Juangroongruangkit, Executive Vice President, to ask her more
about these exciting plans and developments.
