MERCURE REVEALS NEW AND TRULY AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES. WITH DEEP CONNECTIONS TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND A PASSION FOR HOSPITALITY, ITS HOTELS HELP GUESTS DISCOVER THE HIDDEN SPOTS AND SURPRISING STORIES ONLY THE LOCALS KNOW.
In one-of-a-kind hotels in Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and beyond, guests enjoy a strong commitment to quality, learn what makes each destination unique, and create special memories that can last a lifetime.
Mercure Pattaya Hotel is an oasis of fun. Freshly renovated, its new Pool & Aqua Bar zone is a mix of water park, nightclub and restaurant. Guests can relax poolside in Thai salas or beach-style cabanas, play a game of beach volleyball, or enjoy the breezy outdoor cinema while sampling light Indian or Western dishes and Gâteau Maison’s freshly baked artisan bread. By taking a short trip down the coast, travellers can also add a spiritual element to their seaside holiday. The Sanctuary of Truth is an elaborate teakwood building filled with Buddhist and Hindu carvings. Commissioned by a local businessman as “a reflection of the ancient vision of earth, ancient knowledge, and Eastern philosophy,” it’s one of Pattaya’s finest cultural attractions and a fantastic tribute to the skills of Thai craftsmen. As the sun rises over Mercure Hai Phong, guests head to Flame restaurant for a sublime dining experience featuring flavorful seafood and fresh garden vegetables. When the sun sets, the sky bar is an excellent place to unwind with views across the city, the stars reflecting in the swimming pool and a wine list sure to impress connoisseurs. For a very different kind of reflecting, the sacred Ba De Temple is a popular spot at the foot of Doc Mountain. According to legend, there was once a young girl named Dao Thi Huong who was smart, beautiful, and had a stunning singing voice. As often happens in these stories, whispers of an alleged scandal led to an unfortunate end for our heroine, and Lord Trinh Giang built Ba De Temple as a testament to the young girl’s innocence. Today, the temple attracts visitors from near and far who make the pilgrimage seeking special fortune in the afterlife. Set in 12 acres of lush park-like grounds, Mercure Mandalay Hill
Resort offers a touch of old-world style in the former capital city of the Myanmar Kingdom. Spacious rooms offer timeless design and modern comforts, with the exquisite Mandalar Suite recreating the best of luxury travel from a bygone era. With not much more than a beautiful moat separating the hotel from the Royal Palace, this is a beloved destination for historical and cultural travellers. As home to the Kuthodaw Pagoda, it houses hundreds of marble slabs inscribed with Buddhist scripture, including the world’s largest book. All of this is further enhanced by the fun-loving hospitable people of Mandalay, the majestic Irrawaddy River and the many ancient monuments, historical sights and glorious cities of the past.
