InterContinental Pattaya Resort

Exclusive ocean front location in south Pattaya

Standing on the low cliff of a headland jutting out into the blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand, InterContinental Pattaya Resort is less than two hours by road from Bangkok. The luxurious five-star resort occupies an estate of six acres of verdant land and has its own private beach.

There are 156 guestrooms,  with the option of rooms facing the lush green gardens or the ocean, with Koh Larn (Coral Island) on the horizon. Full-length windows let in a flood of natural light, the décor features cool white, grey and beige colours, and every guestroom has its own balcony or terrace from which to enjoy the fragrant sea breezes. All rooms have a spacious bathroom, with separate shower cubicle, and a bathtub in selected room categories. Amenities include flat-screen TV with DVD player, Wi-Fi internet access, tea and coffee maker, and private safety box.

Shade-giving trees surround the three lagoon swimming pools, while the quiet and privacy of the resort’s beach is ideal for bathing and soaking up the sun. The fitness centre is open 24 hours a day, with professional instructors available to recommend workout programmes. All stress, aches and pains can be soothed away in the resort spa, which has rooms for singles and couples, and spa journeys are available along with the menu of individual treatments.

Downtown Pattaya is within easy reach via the complimentary shuttle, a 10-minute journey. Once in Pattaya, the attractions are endless, with fantastic fun to suit all tastes and all ages. Every form of sport is available, from go-karting to horse riding, and parasailing to scuba diving. The concentration of golf courses in this immediate region probably has no equal anywhere. The shopping is unbelievable, the nightlife legendary.

A relaxing staycation spot

Bangkok, Thailand

During the recent Chulalongkorn day holiday, we tried a staycation in Pattaya. This was a departure from our usual staycation spots in either Hua Hin or Khao Yai but friends recently remarked how well Pattaya has developed for quick staycations since the new motorway was upgraded - the latter is true indeed. We used to love visiting Intercontinental Hua Hin but stopped several years ago for various reasons. This Pattaya branch was still the Sheraton resort when we last visited many aeons ago but we liked this quieter part of Pattaya when the Royal Wing was a favorite then. Although this stay at Intercontinental Pattaya was short, it felt sweet indeed. From the moment we arrived, all resort staff were welcoming and helpful. Khun Ekachon at reception made us feel very welcomed and informed us of an upgrade due to my IHG status, plus he confirmed a late check-out - nice! Our king-bed room was comfortable and sported a delightfully expansive view of the beautiful Gulf of Thailand. In the balcony, it was a pleasure to take in the stunning sunset and enjoy the resort's lush gardens teeming with song birds and squirrels. We enjoyed the Thai-made Harnn toiletries, which were so much better than the PRC-made junk meted out by Intercontinental Saigon. Our evening massages at the spa were a relaxing and soothing cap to our first day here. The breakfast buffet in the morning was thankfully a rather serene and unhurried affair as we seemed to have luckily not met any mainland tour groups then. Foodwise, the spread and variety was alright and the chefs kindly did their best with our egg orders. There were three swimming pools to choose from and all seemed fairly quiet that morning. We camped at the pool with the jacuzzis till it was time for a pool-side lunch and to toast to our welcome drinks. Of course, it was a wonderful staycation here, recommended! Tip: if you want to avoid the crowds, give the resort reservations a call to check their low occupancy dates a few weeks in advance of booking, and then enjoy your staycation! We know we did!

Excellent accommodation option in Pattaya with amazing quality and great service

Taiwan

When we have arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the bell persons, waitress, and receptionists. The welcome drinks were served the moment we started the check-in process, and indeed quenched the thirst. Receptionist details about everything we need to know about the hotel itself, location, facilities, and the offers available to IHG members. All the staffs from the drink server, receptionist, luggage carrier, buggy driver, restaurant staff, massage therapist, to all the housekeepers we met during our stay, are all polite, whole-hearted, considerate, and they all aim to make our stay and experience even better. We have been kindly arranged with an ocean view room on the top floor, and we would like to appreciate the arrangement of the receptionist. The room is spacious and tidy, and the view is amazingly good, particularly looking out from the top floor. The bathroom is also large enough for shower and bathing. We have selected the Spa Indulgence package during our reservation, and the 1-hour Aromatic Allure massage at the Amburaya Spa was the best one I ever had in Thailand. The massage therapist who serviced me, June, had the most amazing skills and particularly fitting touch to not only relieve the sore of my whole body but also provide comforts and satisfaction. It's just a treat in this 1 hour period, and she was indeed the most gentle and most skillful massage therapists I have met. There are three swimming pools to enjoy, from the one which is most suitable for kids to the one suitable for actual swimming, all perfectly blend in the resort. Happy Hours drinks are also available from 3 pm to 5 pm, where you can get two cocktails for the price of one. Drinking water was served immediately when we sit around the pool to relax, and the waiter indeed tends to our need right away. We chose to dine at Elements Restaurants as it mainly provided Thai cuisines, and there were also traditional Thai dance and boxing performances during the meal, and it's such an enjoyable dining moment with both food and shows to satisfy our palate and mind. Numerous dishes to choose from during morning buffet at Elements Restaurants, including Japanese, Western, Asia, and of course Thai. The dining experience becomes much enjoyable by taking outdoor seating with the amazingly beautiful ocean view and surrounding lovely songs from birds. In my humble opinion, I do believe that the varieties of morning buffet dishes can be increased to better reflect the luxury experience of staying in InterContinental Resorts. The overall stay experience is wonderful and great, and I will definitely recommend it to others who sat food on Pattaya.
