Dusit, Amari Or Holiday Inn

Recommended Posts

Mrs Thinkingallowed and I are spending four days in Pattaya at the beginning of April. Our plan is to spend the first two nights somewhere like the three hotels mentioned in the title and then the second two in the Areca Lodge.

What I'm after is a club room and not thinking of leaving the hotel for the two days. So restaurants, bars, pools etc are important.

Anyone advice on which might be best for this.

Only been in the Dusit which is fine but by no means up to the standard of some of the Dusits I have visited. Rooms are not stunning and the hotel seemed to be a bit dated in a 'needing refurbishment way' as some of the Dusits have age and decor as part of their charm. Holiday Inn is newish, only been in the lobby for a meeting with a friend, nothing special downstairs in the lobby which appears clinical. Amari are a relatively good chain and in their Sukhumvit Amari did one of the best breakfast buffets I have had. Then again I was disappointed with the Don Muang Amari which had a Henry J Beans which was taking the piss on price and portions.

Have you thought of the Sheraton or Pullman, meant to be good resort style hotels, maybe others have a view of those two quality hotels. Of course the Hilton might have a relatively nice view, similarly the Royal Cliff.

Have a nice time. I will stick to the Royal Wing at LK, not Royal Cliff.

If your looking at not moving from the hotel Centara In Naklua may be worth looking at as it has better facilities than the 3 hotels mentioned, which are all very nice though

Dusit club probably just pips it for service but it's been a while since I stayed there. Amari was fairly good too. Now I generally stay in the holiday inn each visit which is great if on the front with a sea view.

Their website says "from 1,890 Baht per night".

Thank you all very much for your input.

Those that suggested hotels like the Pullman, Centara, etc. I am inclined to agree but I've to try keep Mrs Thinkingallowed happy too. She may be a fine buxom wench but wasn't at the front of the queue when brains were handed out. I did explain the idea of being based in the hotel for a two day wind down period and my first suggestion was the Centara Grand Phratamnak. She said no too expensive taking taxis everywhere. But we aren't going to go anywhere darling. Yes I know but it will be expensive when we do. After going round in a couple of circles I suggest the hotels at the end of Beach Road and everyone is happy.

Presently I'm inclined towards the Amari Ocean but still unsure.

Looks pretty good but their cheapest room for my dates is 4000 per night with breakfast.

Unfortunately they don't do club rooms and that is the type of experience I'm after.

Well ended up booking two nights at the Amari Ocean in an Executive Club room at 6500 per night.

On arrival we were upgraded to a duplex suite which is fantastic. Not sure what this would have cost booking in advance but the walk in rate is nearly 23,000 for the two nights.

Cocktail hour begins shortly, for two hours, and I'm off to attempt a world record for free G&T drinking.

Oh I jolly well am Matt. The G&T world record is on hold as I've been side tracked by some very pleasant chardonnay.

Careful not to get shteaming before you end up in the Rockhouse until the wee hours despite prior plans :fun:
