SINGAPORE - Hilton is eyeing Singapore travellers when
it opens three new resorts in southern Thailand and adds a
city hotel in Bangkok by early 2006.
This brings Hilton's total room count in Thailand from 296
The hotel group is targetting the untapped potential of
Singapore for short-haul breaks and the MICE market
"We will work with our travel industry partners to
increase our share of the 45,000 Singaporeans who have
visit Thailand in a month," said newly appointed director
of sales, Angelia Chew.
She said all of Hilton's Thai properties are within a
two-hour flight from Changi Airport and within easy reach
of the weekend traveller.
The group plans to aggressively promote the Thai
properties to Singaporeans. The 695-room Hilton Phuket
Arcadia Resort & Spa is set to open this October.
