Wave Hotel Pattaya

Pattaya's Beach Road is lined with tons of tourist accommodation. Unlike other upscale properties on the strip, this 18-room hotel boasts a very short distance between the guest rooms and the sea. Literally, it takes just a few minutes to walk from your bed to the beach. Soon after my latest visit to the hotel, the second wave of Covid-19 struck. Pattaya is now open to tourism once again, and so is the hotel.

Vala Hua Hin − Nu Chapter Hotels

Launched in the middle of September, this new boutique resort is a member of SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World). With a modern design that makes the most of its natural surroundings, be it the sunshine or sea breeze, this place is another commendable holiday haven in this part of the sandy coastline that runs from Cha-am to Hua Hin. The property is made up of 97 guest rooms and pool villas, ranging in sizes from 46m² to 107m².

Ozo North Pattaya

Launched in October, this new hotel in the Onyx Hospitality Group, which also runs Amari Pattaya next door, offers modish and convenient accommodation that is also good bang for the buck. The property has 406 rooms. The Dream rooms on the west side of the 18-storey building, like the one I stayed in, come with a sea view. I recommend you pay a little more for one of these rooms rather than the Sleep rooms on the city-view side.

Ban Rabiang Khong

When tourism in Chiang Khan started to bloom about a decade ago, the first-ever Ban Rabiang Khong was opened. Today, the hotel has three properties operating under the same name but located in different places on Chai Khong Road. I spent a night in the newest building which opened two years ago.
