Three new projects announced

At the end of February, Tulip Group also announced they had purchased three new land plots in Pattaya with plans to build three new hotels and one condominium.

“We are delighted to have found these plots of land, we are especially happy with being able to secure the land on Pratamnak Hill, it will offer stunning views of the ocean, and has great beach access, it is a great area and we have plans for something very special on this land,” commented Jason Payne

The other plots are further north in Naklua area, in Soi 12 and Soi 16.  Tulip Group has confirmed that they are in talks with three high profile hotel operators, and hope to secure agreements for hotel management in the near future.

“Negotiations are progressing very well, our design teams are already in place and working on concepts for the properties that we have planned, we will continue our business model of only offering branded residences, as we believe the condominium hotel mix offers clients many more benefits, than just a standalone condominium “ added Payne.
