I selected Rabbit Resort after other reviews and found it to be as good as I was expecting. When I arrived I was greeted very warmly by the owner and her staff and given a guided tour of the resort which comprises a number of separate and very private villas in little shady groves. I was upgraded for 2 nights in a delightful suite overlooking the adults-only pool and this was tastefully furnished with a king size bed, antique tables and chairs, a separate study room and a day bed. The only thing missing was a verandah but this was compensated for by the proximity to the pool and lanai.
The access road to the resort was difficult to find so I ended up having a fairly long walk with luggage from the Dongtan Police Station along the Jomtien beach road as this road is closed to traffic between 10am and 5 pm. First-timers therefore need to obtain clear directions from the hotel before they arrive to give to cab drivers.
The resort has a private area directly across the road on the beach with deck chairs and parasols and has two large swimming pools. The fact that one was reserved for adults only was a God send as it restricted the noise and allowed me space to do some serious lap-swimming.
The resort is a fair walk to the main road and shops but in the evening they provide free transport along the beach road so you can hop on a bus into Pattaya (about a 10 minute ride).
All in all I was very happy with my short time at the resort and would recommend it for all those who want a very comfortable short break close to the beach. The room rates are very reasonable and include breakfast for two. Don't go if you're looking for somewhere glitzy with lots of amenities and facilties.
