At the northern end of Pattaya Beach, this sprawling hotel has superb views. The beautifully kept grounds, with a lap pool and a free-form pool with a swim-up bar, are on the tip of a promontory. The rooms have comfortable sitting areas and private balconies, and the lobby is a light-soaked atrium complete with waterfalls. For a bit more you can book one of the larger "Landmark" rooms. The resort's good Cantonese and Italian restaurants have expansive bay views, and the
Bevarana Spa is a luxurious, cutting-edge facility. This retreat is only a short songthaew ride from Pattaya's attractions.
