Whether you’re seeking a fun-filled outing with colleagues or a productive holiday, Pullman offers the best of both worlds.
Pullman isn’t your ordinary upscale business hotel. True to its mantra of “work hard, play hard,” the brand is the perfect match for Thailand-bound travelers looking to mix business with pleasure.
With its striking, sail-shaped facade, Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit makes a bold statement on the Bangkok skyline. High-end leisure and business meet at this convenient location just steps from Asoke BTS Skytrain station and Sukhumvit MRT: it’s an ideal venue for your next event or meeting in Thailand’s buzzing capital. Spread across six categories, the 325 rooms are stylish, well-appointed, and comfortable. The hotel is also a nomad’s playground thanks to creative dining destinations such as Atelier, an all-day venue serving up à la carte European and Asian favorites as well as lavish breakfast and dinner buffets; Tapas Vino for pan-Mediterranean sharing plates; and the cheery FLourWorx café for light bites, smoothies, and desserts. Looking to stay in shape? Head to the 24-hour fitness center, do laps at the pool, sweat it out at the sauna and steam room, or play ball at the new outdoor tennis court, where professional coaching and equipment rental are also available. A 40-minute flight from Bangkok in the heart of northeast Thailand, the city of Khon Khaen is home to Pullman Khon Kaen Raja Orchid. Rooms here are spacious and intuitively designed, with lighting, temperature, and entertainment functions all controlled from a remote console. The Pullman Khon Kaen also has all the facilities
one would expect in a five-star hotel. After a productive few hours in the multipurpose meeting rooms, you can unwind at the fitness center, outdoor pool, or day spa. Thailand’s first microbrewery in a hotel serves German beer made under the watchful eyes of the in-house brew master. There’s also no less than six restaurants and four bars, including Loong Yuen, an elegant setting for authentic Cantonese and Chiuchow cuisine, and the Orchid Lobby Lounge for afternoon tea or a refreshing drink. Travelers headed to Phuket have two Pullman properties to choose from. Perched on a headland overlooking the Andaman Sea, and a 10- to 15-minute drive from the airport, Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach fronts one of the best beaches along Phuket’s western coastline. Its contemporary Thai-style interiors were created by innovative Bangkok-based firm P49 Deesign, and the 227 guest rooms here include seven 170-squaremeter pool villas. Restaurants and lounges have indooroutdoor spaces that make the most of the ocean vistas; the all-day dining venue fuses the traditions of Thai and Western cuisines, while the main bar’s poolside sun deck is the ideal setting for conferences, functions, and parties. Three swimming pools, outdoor pursuits like beach volleyball, and traditional Thai massage and aromatherapy round out the leisure offerings.

Meanwhile, Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach Resort rises above picturesque Makham Bay on the island’s southeast. Sweeping Andaman Sea views are a feature throughout the 211-room beachfront resort, which is perfectly placed for team-building or leisure trips. Its 700 square meters of meeting space have five breakout rooms, and staff members are fluent not just in Thai and English but also Mandarin, French, Spanish, and Russian. Bars and restaurants include the contemporary Thai restaurant Tamarind and swim-up Edge Pool Bar, while guests can raise the fun factor with activities like giant chess, yoga and cooking classes, snorkeling, and kayaking. And if you want deeper relaxation, Talay Spa offers a range of Thai- and Chinese-inspired therapies.
