Pattaya Beach Resorts

Pattaya beach resorts are located less than two hours from Bangkok and you can easily get here for a weekend break.

There are many convenient ways to reach Pattaya.

There is a regular bus to Pattaya from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport or you can take a van from Mo Chit Bus Station or your hotel will be able to arrange a car for you for around 2000 baht.

Centara Grand Mirage Beach Pattaya

The Centara Grand Mirage Beach is located in the north of Pattaya in a place called Naklua.

The hotel is away from the noise and traffic of Pattaya and comes with its own pools and water features that make it great for all the family but particularly great for those with small children.

Relax on the beach chairs that dot the sandy beach and sip on an iced drink and look out over the Gulf of Siam as the small waves gently lap the shore.

Rooms are sea facing and there are some great views over Pattaya Bay from the higher floors.

You can even see Koh Lan in the distance.

Located close by is the most popular and famous Temple of Truth structure.

Carved solely from wood and overlooking he Gulf of Siam, this masterpiece is well worth visiting, but don't forget to take your camera if you go.

What to do in Pattaya

These two Pattaya beach resorts are located directly on their own stretch of beach, so if you like to be near the water but away from all the activity of Pattaya then these are two quieter options that are suitable for families.

Pattaya also has a number of attractions for all the family including:

  1. Pattaya Beach: It is a great place to grab a deckchair under the umbrellas and order some Thai food. The beach is also the centre for water sports such as jet ski, banana boat rides and parasailing.
  2. Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Gardens: This is a large botanical garden located outside of Pattaya, featuring well designed gardens, lakes, cultural shows and elephant riding.
  3. Sanctuary of Truth: A 105 metre carved wooden temple, which is  a work in progress.
  4. Pattaya Floating Market: This is a tourist attraction frequented by many bus tours, featuring traditional Thai style boats loaded with colourful stalls selling all kinds of merchandise, souvenirs and street food.
  5. Ramayana Water Park: An exciting water park with features for all the family. Although Ramayana is the most recent waterpark, there are also, Pattaya Park, Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark, Splashdown Waterpark and Dream World Pattaya waterparks to choose from.
  6. Jomtien Beach: Less commercial than Pattaya and over on the quieter side. Jomtien is a good place to relax and just sit on the beach and watch the water activities.

No matter which Pattaya beach resort you select, the tourist attractions can be readily accessed from your hotel.
