The Royal Cliff Hotels Group showed off the results of five months of renovations to its Grand resort property with a “Grand Sea-lebration” for invited guests and community leaders.
Group Vice President Vathanai Vathanakul opened the Jan. 10 party at the hotel’s new Grand Infiniti Pool, welcoming clients, supporters, media representatives, and business partners and thanking them for their support and cooperation during the lengthy and extensive renovation.

As guests enjoyed canapés, free-flowing drinks and live jazz music, Executive Director Vitanart Vathanakul outlined all the changes and additions brought about over the past five months.
All of the Royal Cliff Grand’s 372 rooms were remodeled with Thai-inspired décor complemented with contemporary features, including a centralized room-control system that manages lighting, room temperature and motorized blinds. Bathrooms were overhauled, decked out in marble with separate walk-in showers.
The hotel now offers 142 grand sea-view “plus” rooms, seven junior suites, 16 one-bedroom Regency suites and 13 two-bedroom Royal suites. The selection, executives said, provide choices for tourists, “new generation” businesspeople, or families.

The Grand’s Chamu Japanese, Chrysanthemum Chinese and Larn Thong Thai restaurants were redesigned. In February, the Rossini and Cigar Lounge will reopen with its all-new design.
The crowning piece of the renovation was the addition of the Grand Infiniti Pool built on two levels with a heated section, edge-to-edge design and panoramic view of the Gulf of Thailand.

Vitanart said renovations touched all corners of the resort, with redesigns meant to accentuate the hotel’s unique architecture and blend it with the seascape surrounding it. Changes include a new, exclusive entrance and driveway set amidst a seaside backdrop to greet guests upon arrival and an entry-way retouched with a richer tone of color.
Other existing features include Wi-Fi and Internet Protocol television, and the ability to use the screens to order foods or services. There’s also the Cliff Spa, a Thai-cooking school, the Funtasea Kid’s World, The Verge, an activity zone for children and youth, fitness center, private beach, meeting rooms, party rooms, and the Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Hall.
