The 300 room property will have 2-3 restaurants (including rooftop sky bar), spa, gymnasium, huge swimming pool, meeting rooms, club lounge and a selection of deluxe rooms, suites and presidential suites.

Royal Tulip luxury hotels are generally described as being exceptional properties situated in extraordinary locations.  With a 5-star positioning, they provide elegant and luxurious facilities, highly personalized service, ultra-modern amenities and a deluxe level of comfort.

The Golden Tulip chain traces its roots back to the early 1960s, when the first Golden Tulip hotels opened their doors in the Netherlands.  Since then the chain has evolved and expanded across the globe, always in step with the changing needs and expectations of their customers.

Today, the chain operates three well-known brands, Tulip Inn, Golden Tulip and Royal Tulip, with a total of over 230 hotels in 42 countries, and is part of the Affiliate of Groupe du Louvre, which is owned by the Starwood Capital Group private equity firm.  Louvre Hotels Group currently has a portfolio of 6 brands, ranging from 1 to 5 stars.

After forging a strategic alliance with Golden Tulip Hospitality Group, Louvre Hotels Group has become a major worldwide player in the global hotel industry, ranking 2nd in Europe, with more than 1080 hotels in 41 countries.

This property will be Tulip Group’s second joint project with the operator, after last year signing an agreement for a Golden Tulip Hotel and Residence in Central Pattaya.
