We arrived in Pattaya late at night after a short flight from Phuket and a 90 minute transfer from Bangkok airport.
Check in was very effcient and the receptionist had our paperwork ready and waiting. We had booked a one bed suite but we were advised that we had been up graded to a corner suite. The reception area although small was modern and tastefully decorated in a contemporary style. The bell boy took our cases to our room on the 6th floor.
On opening the door there were gasps of delight at the size and standard of the apartment. I had read reviews before booking but we were all blown away with the suite, absolutely amazing. We had a large lounge area with 40 inch lcd tv,massive L shape leather sofa and a single bed set up for our son. The lounge had access to a large balcony.
Our bed room was huge and also had access to a smaller balcony. The bed was massive and we had a 32 inch lcd tv on a stand. Our bedroom also had room for 2 seats and a table as well as a separate desk for working if required. We also had remotes for air con and tv. There was plenty of storage space and a safe as well as thoughtful items like an umbrella and emergency light.
The bathroom was also beautifully designed, spotless and finished to a high standard. There was access both from the lounge and from the bedroom. Massive shower area with 2 shower heads a traditional one on the wall and a drench shower on the ceiling. There was also a very powerful bidet hose.
The kitchen area was very impressive with cooker, hob, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave which all looked they had hardly beeen used. Cupboards were fully equipped with plates, utensils, cutlery etc
The roof top pool on the 8th was of a good size and had a jacuzzi at one end. Turning it on initially was a challenge till we discovered the switch on the wall to the right of the pool. The pool area was well served with good quality pool furniture and was always very quiet. There was also a well equipped gym which again was very quiet. The hotel also has an ice bar which was closed on the Saturday but we hope to visit tonight. Apparently it is 500 baht(£10) for unlimited vodka shots in 20 minutes
The suites are located about a 5 min taxi drive to the beach area and a brisk 20-25 minute walk. There is a hotel golf go cart which will take you to the main road. It is not on the strip but we found it ideal as the area was quiet but it did not take long to access the hustle and bustle of Pattaya. However ensure that you take a hotel business card from reception which has the name and address of the property in Thai. Make clear it is not the Amari Orchid as most taxi drivers see the name Amari and head for there.
The area has a number of Family Mart and 7-11 stores and there is an Irish bar close by.
Contrary to some reviewers comments wifi is free in the rooms and you can use 2 devices in each room at no extra charge. I was also baffled by a reviewer who suggests that the reception needs upgrading. Although small it is modern, clean and furnished to a very high standard
Overall superb accommodation for a great price. Cheaper than the Amari Orchid but with masses more room and home comforts. This was a superb antidote to the disgraceful Baan Yuree in Patong
