The Sheraton Pattaya Resort located in the Phratamnak area, South Pattaya, is set to change its name for InterContinental Pattaya Resort, owing to a rebranding agreement recently signed between InterContinental Hotels Group and Amburaya Resort. The hotel will start operating under the InterContinental brand from 1 April 2016. This high-end beachfront resort offers a total of 156 guest rooms including luxury villas, and is well-known for its top-notch services. Situated within close reach of Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Center, it is an ideal choice for business and leisure travelers alike. The refurbishment program will be split into several phases, all to be completed within 2 years, by 2018. The project is aimed to enhance the amenities and introduce the Club InterContinental range of VIP benefits and privileges into the resort. At present, the IHG’s family includes three hotels in Thailand: InterContinental Bangkok, InterContinental Hua Hin Resort and InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort.
