While Pattaya is often overlooked as a luxury destination, the seaside town is gradually cleaning up its image with more high-end hotels and attractions opening up in recent time, attracting events like the Thai Polo Open and Wonderfruit Music Festival.  The town located just a couple of hours outside of Bangkok makes it an ideal destination for a quick weekend getaway or a place to host functions, especially since getting a new luxury beachfront retreat right in the tranquil Na Jomtien district.

Renaissance Pattaya Resort & Spa is set to open its door on September 1 with 257 rooms on offer, including lush pool villas and family suites. The low-rise resort’s design draws inspiration from Pattaya’s historical roots as a local fishing village, using a colour palette of earthy and marine tones and accented by wooden and metal finishes. The hotel’s architectural concept is reflective of the Renaissance brand’s attempt to appeal to a younger, design-oriented market with more youthful and experiential elements, while still retaining the feeling of luxury.
