Directors, management and staff celebrate the Pattaya Marriot Resort & Spa’s 36th anniversary with religious ceremonies and merit-making.
The property in 1978 was just a collection of 30 bungalows, but grew into 298-room resort after being taken over by Minor International and operated under the Marriott brand by Minor CEO William E. Heinecke.
The Marriot Resort & Spa became popular for its luxury stays near the beach and a downtown location that still offers a cozy, natural environment. It also houses three popular restaurants with a variety of international food.
