“Secluded Luxury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This hotel is comfortable from the moment you walk into its air-conditioned lobby. The front desk staff greets you courteously and the lobby, although small, is nicely appointed. The rooms are spacious and very functional, with very modern conveniences. Due to its out-of-the-way location, it is usually very quiet. The location is also about the only negative that I can identify. Taxi drivers have difficulty finding it, and many drove me past it on the first trip. But leaving the hotel to go shopping or to the beach is fairly easy. The hotel staff use a golf cart to take you to nearby locations - but not all the way to the beach. The pool is beautiful and boasts a waterfall at the end. massages are available by the pool or in the spa next door. In all, it's a very worthwhile place to stay.

This place is a shamble. Not only is it far away from the action (where most hotels are based) this lacks basics. Gym equipment hardly works. Swimming pool shaded and freezing dirty waters. No on site restaurant. And the buggy which was supposed to take one to the main street only works when the bell boys feel like taking you otherwise they say battery is flat!! The girl at the reception (for managers refence this is the only fair skinned girl you have at the reeption who works during the day) is the rudest and uninviting receptionist I have ever met. She speaks to individuals in the worst manner one could imagine. overall not satisfied. Toilets were never cleaned in the room throughout my 10 day stay. 4-5stars I doubt it. More like 2 stars if that!

The hotel was hard to find and far from the main attractions in Pattaya. The hotel was small but cute with modern design. I love the bedroom. Bed was comfortable and big. They used good quality beddings. Very clean hotel. It was very cheap and yet we got more than what we paid. The bell boy was very hardworking, helpful and friendly. We booked and prepaid for an executive room but got a superior room instead. We weren't told about the kind of room given to us. We wouldn't have any idea we were given a cheaper room if I had not seen the rooms on the internet. Of course I complained and was told that there was no available executive at that time. We were offered breakfast instead. Did we have any choice? The following day, I insisted again to get an executive room since we were not really interested in their breakfast....we like to wake up late. The following day we were given a triple room. Still small space but with bathtub.
This was the only thing I didn't like about it. A advice to them at the reception: If somebody already prepaid for a certain room, do not give that room to somebody else. They should be more professional in this aspect. Anyway, I like the hotel simply because it was nice and clean.

Room Tip: specify what kind of room have you booked before getting the room key.

Good hotel in a friendly area. We got an upgrate on 3 days stay. Very nice room. Very friendly Staff, Value for Money.

The Nova Gold is located a bit out of the way, but it is in a residential area, making it quiet and you get a feel for Pattaya away from the tourists. The welcome on arrival was polite yet warm, and they made my companion feel very welcome too

The bedrooms are clean and functional. The balcony is a bonus. a well-equipped bathrom, minibar fridge in which you could cool your own items, 40" TV, DVD player and mini-computer with free WiFi access throughout the stay. In short, it was excellent.

There is no restaurant, but food and drinks are available from the nearby another Amari Nova Property "Amari Nova Suites". Staff will serve you in your room or by the pool. The hotel is also surrounded by cheap Thai eateries, so keeping fed is no problem. There are also a Seven Eleven and a FamilyMart within 1 minute of the front door, which is convenient.

And all this for 1500 bahts per night, inclusive, through Agoda.

Overall, I like the hotel. I have stayed there twice and will undoubtedly stay there again.

Room Tip: 1. high floor, non-smoking 2. for Honeymoon couples, they will prepare special room for you on requ...

Nova Gold Pattaya is great value for money. We will stay here again when in Pattaya. Its rooms are between a 4 and 5 star with prices of a 3 star. This hotel has been reviewed pretty comprehensively by other reviewers so I will just give a few additional pointers:

1) Hotel has free drop off service 24 hours a day to the main street (about 5 to 7 minutes away) from where local transport is easily available. They pick you from the same spot if you call them, We called the hotel at 1 o'clock in the night for a pick up and the bugee was there in 10 minutes. Impressive!!

2) Swimming Pool is just a plunge pool and a majority of the pool gets no sun. So those looking for a great pool scene may avoid.

3) We loved the bathrooms.

4) Unlike other hotels, this hotel offers very competitive site seeing prices. Might not be the lowest in town but very competitive and very convenient.

5) Thai massage at the hotel is good. But there is a massage parlour right opposite the hotel which charges half the price.

6) I fell sick on my way to Pattaya. The hotel promptly organised a visit to the hospital.

7) Their menu does not have too many veg dishes (But then which hotel in Pattaya does??) But the Thai Curry and Rice was great.

8) Very quiet yet very Central.

Go for it. Cheers!!

Caution : Please note that the five star rating is based on the value that the hotel offers on the whole!! There are far more luxurious hotels in Pattaya if you are ready to pay that kind of price.

Room Tip: We booked the Executive Room. They upgraded us to the Corner Executive Room. More spacious and big...
