Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya

Siam@Siam Pattaya

Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya is siimilar to Siam@Siam Design Hotel in Bangkok, however it has a totally different vibe and look. Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya is decorated in blue colours consistent with the beach which is a few minutes down the road. I took the photo above at 6.00 am in the morning when the sun was rising. I'm giving my secrets away here; this pool gets pretty crowded during the day and night so if you really want to soak in this tranquil feeling get up early!

My room was fantastic. In the gallery below you will note the beautiful bathroom with a large bath and seperate toilet and shower, the King sized bed which was very comfortable, lounge and a fantastic Day Bed where you can sit and soak in the scenery. I loved this room it was bright and very comfortable.

As Siam@Siam Design Hotel Bangkok is full of interesting art and sculptures, so too is Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya. Everywhere I looked I found something interesting and quirky.

There are two pools plus two children's pools surrounded by plenty of deckchairs - some of them are actually in a shallow pool. The pool area has a bar for that cocktail to sip on when you watch the sunset.

The dining/bar areas on the ground and 6th floors are roomy. I dined for breakfast and dinner on the 6th level. It's buffet breakfast catering for both Western and Eastern tastes in food, and dinner was also buffet. You can choose meet, seafood or chicken and take to a counter for the Chef's to cook to your liking.

It's few blocks to the beach however if you want to go further watch out for the 'utes' - as you walk they will beep you and you can hop on the back and go around the area for around 10 baht. Just remember to ring the bell when you want to get off! This is a great little system because they are plentiful so you won't be waiting for taxis.

Speaking of traffic, Pattaya has its fair share too, and plenty of motor bikes. If you have never been to Asia be prepared to spot a whole family riding a bike and some without helmuts! Don't ever be tempted to hop on a bike without a helmut because accidents do happen so don't let your guard down.

For me, Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya is an experience I will always remember. It's a fun hotel offering great service, amenities and convenient location.

Pattaya Viewpoint (Khao Pattaya View Point) on Pratumnak Hill

One of the things I noticed in Thailand there are plenty of cats! Pattaya Viewpoint was such an unusual place full of cats and roosters! I have seriously never seen so many cats and roosters in my life especially living in harmony with each other! Maybe it's because of the tranquil lives of monks and that energy passing on to the animals? As I type this I'm chuckling to myself remembering it all.

The temple is a must see when you visit Pattaya not just for the roosters and the cats but for the stunning view. It's pretty crowded and I soon discovered I wasn't the only tourist in the area! There were people everywhere looking at the view and many of them climb up the steep hill rather than drive.

Siam Country Club

I'm not a golfer but I can tell a good golf course when I see one. The Siam Country Club is so scenic it's almost breathtaking. Without a doubt this is a golfing paradise with three courses: The one I visited and featured in the photos is called Waterside, and there are two more; the Old Course and Plantation. Waterside is an 18 hole course and as the name suggests, there is a lot of water to navigate! I was taken on a golf buggy around the course. It was a stifling hot day and I was in jeans so I struggled a little with that but it was worth every minute to soak in this amazing scenery.

Apart from the spectacular course itself, the Club House Facilities are exceptional. On my visit there was a charity tournament and golfers were arriving to be greeted by the recipients of the charities; one of them an orphanage. There were about 20 little kids all lined up for the greeting and this image has haunted me every since. Not that the children were unhappy, far from it, but when I remember their little faces and think they have no parents it's a reality check for me to be very grateful for the life I have. I wanted to sweep them all up on my arms and adopt them, but of course that's not possible. What is comforting is that the children are well cared for and fundraising, as was happening on this day, ensures these charities can continue their good work.

Glasshouse Restaurant

After my tour of Siam Country Club we headed back to South Pattaya to dine at Glasshouse Restaurant. I was actually flying home to Sydney that night as well so this was a busy day. Once I arrived at Glasshouse Restaurant I wanted to say forever!

The restaurant is huge with both indoor and outdoor dining and beautifully decorated. The inside is stunning and displays interesting Thai history. We opted to dine outside though because of the fantastic holiday feel and view.

Apart from the scenic location and that balmy Thai weather, the food was sensational. We dined on the following dishes:

Fried Shrimp with Black Pepper

Larb Salmon

Tom Yum Goong with Milk

Fried Rice with Crab Meat

Fried White Perch with Sweeten Fish Sauce

Orange, Pink Grapefruit, Lime, Cinnamon & Rosemary Mocktail

Mango Dessert

.... and my standout was the Fish! I chose not to add any sauce or even lemon to mine; it didn't need it.

If you are planning a trip to Pattaya please do put Glasshouse Restaurant on your list of things to experience. Even though I was about to hop back in the car for the two hour journey back to Bangkok Airport, I couldn't help but pretend I was living in this paradise!

My short experience of Pattaya was rememberable and next time I visit I'm going to make sure it's a bit longer.
