Dusit Thani Pattaya plays host to two world-renowned sport events
During 6-13 February 2011, Dusit Thani Pattaya will once again be the host hotel to the PTT Pattaya Open 2011, one of the most renowned WTA tournaments in Asia as it is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the five-star resort this year. Pentangle Promotions Managing Director, Mr Geoffrey Rowe recently announced that the 2010 PTT Pattaya Open was voted as Tournament of the Year by the WTA players, citing reasons such as the unique Thai cultural experience they had in Pattaya, as well as the relaxed atmosphere at Dusit Thani Pattaya and the welcoming hospitality of its staff and management. This year’s PTT Pattaya Open features a star-studded line up as it brings together former world No 1 and Grand Slam winner Ana Ivanovic, Russian Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Tamarine Tanasugarn and last year’s champion, Vera Zvonareva.
Another internationally-acclaimed sport, the Honda LPGA Thailand 2011 will take place during 13-21 February 2011 at the Siam Country Club Golf Course. For three consecutive years now, Dusit Thani Pattaya will also play host to this golf spectacle in which the top 50 world-class players will be participating including Jiyai Shin, Cristie Kerr and last year’s winner Ai Miyazato from Japan. They will be competing for the trophy along with other international players such as Na Yeon Choi, Suzann Pettersen and Paula Creamer.
The PTT Pattaya Open 2011 and the Honda LPGA Thailand 2011 are expected to boost the tourism business in Pattaya as both events have a wide following, thereby giving the resort city the elevated recognition of being a great sports destination and Dusit Thani Pattaya the recognition as the home for such world-renowned tournaments.
