Bangkok – June 18, 2019 – Best Western Hotels & Resorts celebrates the signing of a full management contract for Bluphere, BW Premier Collection by Best Western, which will become the first newly-built BW Premier Collection hotel in Asia.

As a result of the PSA, Bluphere, BW Premier Collection by Best Western will now benefit from Best Western’s 70+ years of hospitality experience and expertise, with full operational support. This will include day-to-day management, global sales, marketing and distribution, revenue management, state-of-the-art technology, human resources, training and much more. The hotel will also join the network of Best Western Rewards®, the company’s industry-leading loyalty program.
Bluphere, BW Premier Collection by Best Western is located just 100 meters from the beach, a few minutes from the attractions of downtown Pattaya, and about 1.5 hours’ drive from Bangkok. Scheduled to open in Q2 2020, the hotel will feature 195 contemporary suites, ideal for family getaways, weekend breaks and couples retreats. The eight-story property will also offer an array of upscale facilities, including a stylish rooftop swimming pool.
