Many Thai resorts can boast of beachfront access and spectacular views, but not all of them take proper advantage of these features. With design that highlights the scenery and expansive grounds of natural beauty, Rayong Marriott Resort & Spa achieves this.
The decor at Marriott Rayong is understated, allowing the beautiful surroundings to do the talking. You can tell that real care has gone into the design and layout to make the most of the incredible mountain and sea views in every room, and this makes them feel incredibly pleasant and refreshing.
The resort has two adult outdoor pools, including a jaw-dropping Island View pool from which you can watch the sunrise and sunset. However, it’s the huge lagoon-style swimming pool complete with slides, tropical aquarium, and plenty of private sun lounger space that really makes this hotel stand out. You also get direct beachfront access to Wang Kaew Beach, in case you prefer sunning in the sand.
The hotel’s main all-day restaurant has a great position overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, so you can start your day with a tasty breakfast and a world-class view. The Fish Bar serves fresh authentic Thai seafood dishes, while the cafe and pool bar keep the refreshments coming throughout the day.
Mariott Rayong is located about an hour and a half’s drive away from Pattaya. This hotel is a great choice if you want a Thai beach holiday without going too far from Bangkok, and are interested in checking out Dongtan beach for a day trip. As long as you’re ok with skipping Central Pattaya nightlife (or are happy to pay for a long taxi), Marriott Rayong makes for an exceptional stay.
