A raised headland at the southern end of Pattaya Bay, Pattaya Hill is accessible by winding roads that lead to the top. Popular with families, it’s full of up-market resorts with luxury facilities, large gardens, fine-dining restaurants, panoramic sea views and a quiet, serene atmosphere. Those staying here may feel somewhat alienated from Pattaya’s brash action but are in fact only a few minutes’ drive from it. Shopping and nightlife are just downhill. More bonuses: resorts typically have lots of recreational facilities for guests to enjoy, and Jomtien Beach – a quieter alternative to Pattaya Beach – is close by.
