Historical Traveler Reviews Amari Garden Pattaya
Un desayuno estupendo
Me hospedé allí dos noches en abril, 2003, y no tuve problemas. El desayuno bufé fue diverso y bueno. La estación de huevos donde hacían tortillas era rápida, y eran atentos a tus pedidos. Con respecto al hotel principal, si no te agradan los escalones, agarra una habitación en un piso más abajo, ya que no hay ascensor. Estaban construyendo una torre, la cual tendrá ascensor. El restaurante separado que quedaba más cerca del agua también tenía buena comida, servicio excelente y entretenimiento en vivo.

Amari Orchid Resort: Good Hotel that will soon become a great resort
Because I was aware of previous construction during previous visits to the Amari Orchid Resort in April and July of 2006, I booked a superior room at a great rate expecting to hear some construction noise but was pleasantly surprised to hear no noise.
I stayed at the Amari Resort and Tower from March 8 through March 10. I was pleasantly surprised at the changes that were in progress towards making this good hotel into a five star resort.
The gardens have been renovated and an elegant lap pool has been added. Across from the lap pool, the construction on the exterior of Ocean Tower building looked nearly complete. Next to the first class Mantra Restaurant and Bar, a new fitness center/spa/business center was being constructed.
In the past, I had stayed at the Amari Orchid Resort for its quieter North Pattaya location, good room value, and easy hotel website booking but now I look forward to experiencing the luxury of a five star resort (Ocean Tower Rooms, Fitness Center & Spa, Business and Conference Center Services, and Fine Dining) in July 2007.
We stayed at the Amari and enjoyed the service and mainly the large pool. I've read the other review about the noise of construction from 2006 and it is actually still going on. There is a new building still in process facing the pool but it's just about completed. There's plenty of chairs for tanning and a large open area around the pool. Don't expect a big room for the US118+ a night because they are extremely small. The location is great cause it's about 5 minutes on the mini buses to pattaya beach.
DON T GO HERE!!!!
just got back from thailand...booked 3 nights at the amari orchid but left after one...
its a very run-down hotel...reason:they are building a very larg high-rise new one right next to it...nearly all of the gardens are gone and turned into a massiv building site....
view from the pool:15 storieconcrete new building....
work start at 7 in the morning with heavy vehicles and diggers...
hotel should have been closed down...dust and noise everywhere...
went with girlfriend...are bothfrequent travellers but never been to a hotel that sells condoms in the mini bar!!!!!!!!!
just dont go there....just a big dump at the moment cant see it getting much better in the near future....
Quiet gardens in busy Pattaya
The Amari's greatest asset is the large garden that insulates you from the noise of Pattaya. The location is good, with the 10 Baht buses passing by the front and back of the hotel every few minutes. A disadvantage is that only about 10 rooms (242 - 252) have a balcony, a major advantage in this climate. Buffet food was excellent, but there are many good value restaurants in Pattay.
A Great Place to Relax
My wife and I live in Bangkok and have stayed at the Amari Orchid Resort on three different occasions. I has become our standard lodging in Pattaya where we go for short breaks from Bangkok. It is a clean, very well maintained, low rise older property with a charm not present in most high rises. The open air reception area is lovely. The pool, as another reviewer has commented, is truly outstanding. And it is only a short walk down through the lovely gardens to the beach road and the beach where you can get a massage if you wish. I would recommend it for families because it is north of the tacky main beach area. When you do want something more lively, the main beach area is only a short songthiew ride away.
When travelling to Thailand, my girlfriend and I did not expect to have amazing services and facilities at our disposal. We had paid what we considered to be a very small amount of money for a five-star hotel. To us, the idea of 'five-star' in Thailand would be a lot different to Europe. How wrong we were!
The Amari Orchid is an amazing facility based at the end of Pattaya beach. Away from the hustle and bustle of Pattaya town, the Amari Orchid is a luxurious delight. From its pristine facilities to unbeliveable service, it was a highlight for us in a two month holiday around Asia and Europe.
The rooms are outstanding, decked out in dark wood, pristine white sheets and sparkling bathrooms. There is every facility you'd expect from a five-star hotel, including satellite television, air conditioning and regular cleaning services. There are a plethora of restaurants and bars serving delicious food (asian and european) at ridiculously low prices. However for me, there was another highlight - the pool!
The pool at the Amari is a wonder, a place that you just don't want to leave. With temperatures soaring, just jump in the pool and cool off. While you're in, you can grab a cocktail from the pool bar, served to you by the always smiling, always joking bar staff. If you've cooled down, you can then book an hour and a half Thai massage for something like US$5.
There are taxis that can take you into Pattaya itself, which is an antithesis of the Amari's calm and sophisticated demeanour. If cheap clothes and cheap sex is your bang, Pattaya's got what you want. However, Pattaya is definitely safe for families, far more so than Bangkok.
If you're planning a short break in Thailand, consider Pattaya, and make sure you get to the Amari Orchid. It is simply one of the best hotels you'll visit for such a low price.
FOR: Price, facilities, service, all round experience
SUM UP: Cheap travel at its most luxurious
A great hotel
I stayed at this hotel in July/August 2004, it was a good hotel at the quieter part of Pattaya. The staff were very friendly, especially 'Santana' who works at the poolbar, he made us laugh everyday.

... up to Pattaya, where I labored long to find my family hotel, Joy & Peter, close to Jomtien Beach, in the south, booked on Agoda for 15 euro per night. Now I go to see this place that seems to be a huge entertainment park and with decent beaches that tomorrow I will verify. Here it's already 8:30 pm, while you're having lunch ..... maybe good appetite and a warm greeting to all those who have followed me here so ...
We left Chiang Mai in the direction of Bangkok, stayed a night along the way, and then took the toll roads around the edge of the city. A little detour to the airport and we finally got our leftover Burmese money changed. It was hot and humid so we decided to head for the coast and reached Pattaya late in the afternoon.
The next day we visited the Floating ...
We had a shore excursion here called "Local Lifestyles" which took us to some quite large towns, walks through the dried and fresh fish markets, the obligatory shrine, an interesting stone masonry and sculpting yard and eventually to Pattaya Beach. We had a holiday in Pattaya Beach in 1979 and did not recognise the place, it now has a lot of high rise ...
Well looks like the Seismic Industry is picking up but very slowly so i have been offered some contract work. This is great news. Will be working in Dubai for 7 weeks in Dry Dock. this does mean a slight change in my plan but just a minor one i hope.
The Buddha pendant hanging on my chest is burning a hole in my flesh no doubt trying to warn me I`m on the wrong track. I`m not supposed to be here on this old and rusty boat with Little-****-Richard and Rob.
Still having a boat excursion around the canals of Amsterdam is every tourist's dream and even a hot item among the local populace.
