THAI CONNECTIONS The Marriott Pattaya Resort & Spa has just been rebranded as the Avani Pattaya Resort & Spa. Avani is a five-year-old brand owned by the Minor Hotel Group, which has owned the property since 1978, when it was first opened as the Royal Garden Resort. Former guests of the popular old resort will probably have no trouble recognising the new one its websites main page features a photo (also released to the press) that shows the Marriott with an Avani sign photoshopped on the front wall (above). Travel: glamping at Pattayas Wonderfruit festival; Banyan Tree opens Dhawa for millennials Minors other upmarket hotel brand is Anantara, which opened its first resort 15 years ago across the Bay of Bangkok, in Hua Hin ( huahin.anantara.com ). Both these Minor resorts will soon be within easy reach if reports that a new high-speed ferry service linking Hua Hin and Pattaya could start on January 1 are true. This would cut travel time between the two resort towns, which are currently linked only by road via Bangkok, from several hours (depending on traffic) to about 90 minutes. Details are sketchy, and theres no ferry website, even in Thai, but it looks like there will be one morning and one afternoon departure from each terminal, allowing for day trips in both directions. Watch this space for confirmation of the new route. For opening rates at the Avani Pattaya Resort & Spa, visit www.minorhotels.com/en/avani/pattaya .
