Pattaya has some great hotels with new ones becoming available all the time to cater for the influx of tourists coming predominantly from China, India and Russia. In the last 12 months, even after the opening of Centre Point at Terminal 21, we have seen the opening of several new hotels across Pattaya with many more due to open in 2020. Here are just five of the notable opportunities.
Holiday Inn Express, Soi Buakhao
Soi Buakhao and the surrounding area is one of the most popular places in Pattaya, particularly amongst western tourists. It is ideal for the local nightlife, and it is easy to get to other areas of the city from here with taxis, motorbike taxis and baht buses being plentiful. The Holiday Inn Express, thanks to its branding, means visitors know what they are going to get from this global brand. The facilities are excellent, and the service is just what you would expect, making this an obvious choice for those wishing to stay in the heart of the city.
For a long term rental, you can rent a brand new studio in a 5* development on Naklua 18
LK Emerald Beach
The LK Emerald Beach can be found at the very bottom of Naklua Soi 20. It is a quiet location but is close to restaurants, bars and shops with the Dolphin Roundabout being just a few minutes’ walks away. The hotel is officially classed as 4-star, but most would argue that it is close to many of the 5-star hotels in the area. The views from all rooms are great, and the facilities are excellent, especially considering this is a relatively small hotel.
Centara COSI is located across from the Centara Grand Mirage on Naklua soi 18. This impressive-looking building is exceptionally modern, having opened in September 2019. It is unique in that regards itself as a “social hub”. It is just a few moments away from Wongamat Beach and has an in house bar, restaurant and café as well as the regular features. It is ideally situated for getting to other areas of the city and is considerably cheaper than its sibling.
In the centre of Pattaya 3rd road, modern 1 bedroom for rent in a new project
Although not a new hotel, Lets Hyde on Naklua, Soi 18/2 underwent extensive renovations and reopened under the new name. The hotel now has a far more modern feel and has been one of the few survivors in the area along with the neighbouring Lek Villa. The hotel has excellent facilities, is close baht bus routes, restaurants and bars and is ideal for those looking to stay somewhere quieter but within easy travelling distance of the main attractions.
Best Western Plus Speech Pattaya
The brand new Best Western Plus Speech hotel on Pattaya 3rd Road only opened its doors in November and is located in the heart of Central Pattaya. It is excellent for the popular Soi Buakhao and LK Metro. It is a relatively quiet location that will undoubtedly be one of the most popular in the area thanks to in superb modern facilities.
