From Horizon to Horizon

Dining by the sea with starlight above and city light below, Wynn A. Bay has found the perfect place to enjoy Pattaya city at nighttime.

From Horizon to Horizon


November 10th, 2014

Considered the best venue to embrace the night scenery of Pattaya city, Thailand, the Horizon restaurant and bar designed by DWP is a world of its own on the rooftop level of the 34-storey complex of Hilton Pattaya Hotel.


Hilton’s pursuit of the sophisticated experience – their vision of the ‘Hilton moment’ for visitors – is genuinely reflected in their commitment to interior design within each space. Each facility delivers strong aesthetic presentation from different award-winning designers.

Though all the facilities in this vertical seaside resort share the mutual theme from the sea, Horizon sets itself apart as the place with the experience of overlooking the panoramic view of the bay from an exclusive cliff pedestal, one that is high above all without any backdrop obstruction.



To get to Horizon, one exits the hotel elevator and takes the path down a long corridor, which has only enough illumination to navigate safely to the restaurant entrance. This gives a silent message as to what the eyes should fix upon, which is certainly no longer the interior, but the glittering bay view outside. On the other hand, the series of vertical wood paneling on the interior wall in this area serve to remind one of its exterior form.



Horizon functionally divides itself into three zones: the interior dining, the exterior mixed-use, and the cocktail viewing deck. The cherry-on-top of this already impressive display of Pattaya city’s lightscape is in the design execution of the exterior space. This space is dominated by a large circular opening filled with cool-blue lighting on the ceiling, and the atmosphere of dining under the stars is simulated via LED lighting.


Through its thoughtful design, the Horizon without a doubt has gone all out to celebrate the beauty of Pattaya city when night falls.
