Travelodge has signed a management agreement with C.A.T Opulence (Thailand) Company Limited to launch a new 150-room Travelodge Hotel in Pattaya, Thailand.
Travelodge Jomtien, expected to open in 2019, will include The Lodge, which combines a restaurant, bar, meeting spaces, business centre and lobby.
Approximately a 50-minute drive from U-Tapao Rayong-Pattaya International Airport, Travelodge Jomtien is strategically situated close to Jomtien Beach.
Chanchai Themsoontorn, managing director of C.A.T Opulence (Thailand) Company Limited, said: “Travelodge is a highly recognisable international hotel brand, especially in the midscale segment. Given the brand’s strong global footprint, we are confident that our hotel will be able to cater to the needs of both domestic and international visitors traveling to Pattaya.”
Jonathan Wigley, CEO of Travelodge Thailand, added: “We are delighted to announce the first of many Travelodge properties in Thailand with the announcement of the Travelodge Jomtien.
“Pattaya is an internationally recognised resort destination and we are delighted to develop our first Travelodge property in such a high profile location to service both the domestic and international markets. With Bangkok and Chiang Mai soon to follow this is a great first step.”
Aw Cheok Huat, chairman of Travelodge Hotels Asia, concluded: “Travelodge offers guests a consistent and uncompromising experience of the essentials – complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, high quality signature bedding, dine-in or grab and go breakfast options, multi-functional space of The Lodge and overall great value.
“Pattaya is one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations with plans to transform into a world-class sports and family destination. We expect Travelodge to be well-received in Pattaya and broadly across Thailand, and anticipate more new Travelodge hotels in key cities across the country in the near future.”
