X2 brings its "younger sibling" brand to the resort town

After the launch of a modern-retro villa in Chiang Mai, the Bangkok-based resort chain X2 is now moving to Pattaya. Or rather, Bann Am Por Beach, just south of Jomtien.

The sleek-looking X2 Vibe Pattaya SeaPhere is actually composed of a group of luxury condo units 100 meters from the beach, but they’re already plugging it as a resort as well, with nightly rates starting at B2,500 ($102).

There are only 65 rooms in total, mixed between one- and two-bed studios, the biggest featuring private plunge pools. Not to miss is the hotel’s rooftop as it features an infinity pool, kids’ playground, sky deck and a garden bar and barbecue area.

Bann Am Por Beach sits between the Pattaya Floating Market and Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark, about a half-hour drive south of town. 

The X2 Vibe brand made its debut in the Northeastern city of Buriram last year.
