“Friendly family run resort away from it all and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

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.

Hello Port Moresby: So happy you liked room R-6. It is a pretty room, old wood floors and nice view of the pool. The windows are so big it is like you are living outside. We are very difficult to find and if you are planning to stay with us it is important to take our map with you, along with our phone number. Please call us if you can't find us. We have 2 entrances, one the small beach road (closed 10am-5pm) another back entrance which is hard to identify. There are no signs on the road to follow. Once you arrive you will understand why we are so special, we are hidden away and quiet. A real oasis in the midst of high rises. It is hard to find us, but well worth it! We are only 10-15 mins by car to the center of Pattaya. If you like nature and lush landscaping, plus direct frontage on the best beach, Rabbit Resort is the choice. Thanks again for the review. Mrs. Rabbit

We chose to stay here from other reviews we have read here. And it's true, the rabbit resort is one of the first locates on this beach (dongtan = palm forest). The resort has very nice yet modern Thai style surround but nature, with a large area. The best part is there are 2 pools, where one does not allow children so it is very relaxing and quite. The food and service is just great, seems that every personel is very helpful. A bit drawback is that wireless internet works only around pools and reception, and not in the rooms, as well as when you check-in you need to sign and accept many term and conditions which some might feel offend by that, but remember that there are many things go on in Pattaya.
We will definitely come back and stay much longer next time.

Hi Copenhagen! It's a lovely day at Dongtan Beach - just perfect for swimming in our two pools. Yes, we built 2 pools so that all guests could enjoy their holiday. One pool is for adults only - it's our relaxation and quiet pool. You can read or take long naps. Our other pool is for fun and play. The family pool is a happy pool with fountains, jacuzzi and infant area. Both pools have handmade celedon tiles. Both also feature a darling tile rabbit at the bottom. Look for "Chalong" taking care of the pool every morning at 6:00am. Chalong and his family live at the resort and have been with us for 11 years. They helped us plant the landscaping at the very beginning. Have a great day today - Cheers from Mrs. Rabbit.

This was our first visit to Thailand and the hotel we chosed, Rabbit Resort, met all our expectations. Location is excellent, very pleased that the hotel is surrounded by trees and flowers. Two very beautiful pool, for families with children and adults..in 2nd we spent too much time :-)
The hotel staff is very friendly, always ready to help. Rooms are cleaned daily, every day after cleaning we found flowers in our bed, it was so cude.
I recommend to choose this hotel for those who wants to relax and spend time far away from the town noise.
Dear Mr&Mrs Rabbit/ Hotel Team,
Again thank you very much for the wonderful week we spent in your hotel.
Hope to return again to this hotel!

Hi Turkmenistan: It was a pleasure having you both here. Happy you loved your upstairs room near the pool. You are right, trees and flowers are important to us. We are all about nature. I am sure you saw a few squirrels chatting in the morning and lots of colorful birds. We really appreciate you staying with us and love to have you again next time. Everyone at Rabbit Resort says hello! Mrs. Rabbit.

Hello Nakorn Ratchasema: Thank you for the kind words and nice review. Our staff is always doing their best to make sure you are happy on your holiday. Look for "Ong" while you are here. She is the Head of Housekeeping. You can't miss her, very small little lady but a powerhouse. She was our first employee 12 years ago and now oversees our 8 maids. Her son, niece and nephew are also employed here. Our housekeeping staff are very caring ladies and are delighted to help you in anyway possible. Thanks again for staying with us. Best Bunny Wishes from Dongtan Beach - Mrs. Rabbit.

Staff (including the owners) very friendly and helpful. Hotel area has try to built a comfortable and cozy. Rooms (bungalows) are clean and good. Swimming pool areas are well maked. Hotel's own their own beachchairs by the sea which is nearby (but the sea looks like polluted) Breakfast is good and varied.
From hotel is a long way to walk to the Jomtien beach, etc.
Some usually drunken and so arrogant Russians roars in RR too (as anywhere else they do)
A very good and highly recommended but perhaps not the best of Pattaya?

Thank you so very much for your comments. We are always striving to be better and improve. We are known as a very, very quiet resort and our staff is trained to immediately take care of any disturbance. I am sorry you encountered a problem. Jomtien Beach is a 4-5 minute walk and we also have a free songtel "little car" that is available to take all of our guests there before 10am and after 5:00pm. In between we have a back entrance that we can also use. I remember your lovely family and friends. We really appreciate you staying with us and thank you again for your comments. The Rabbit Resort staff says hello to all of you and best wishes too!

This is a very nice place, in fact it might be the best I have ever stayed at. It is not 5* but the staff is 5*. It was a nice mixture of different nationalities. Mrs. Rabbit holds a firm hand over everything ensuring that everything runs smooth (and no we were not offended that you pointed out where to sit and not during breakfest).

If this is resort is top notch, that can not be said about Pattaya. There are so much better places to go in Thailand. But if we ever would come back our choice would be Rabbit Resort.

Room Tip: WIFI in rooms if they are close to pool.

Hello Sweden,
Really appreciate your kind review, especially "where to sit". It was great having both of you here and happy that you liked our resort. Our staff of 50 always do the best possible job and really care about the guests. From "A" our head engineer-all around top IT guy to Pra-gop (means frog in Thai) who hands out cookies in a basket everyday at the beach and pools. We all try very hard to do our best. Hope you had a fantastic time in Borneo!! Cheers from Dongtan Beach and Rabbit Resort!! Thank you Deborah

3rd Visit to pattaya. First stay in Rabit resort.
This time was on a luxary trip to thailand with family so plan to choose the best rated hotel. As the other feedback says- Rabbit Resort is a GEM indeed.
Friendly staff, peaceful location, everything magnificent.

Another thing which you can't miss when you come over to pattaya is to get your self a couple of nice tailored suits.

Last time didn't had a good service from the tailor I tried.
This time got a recomendation from a good friend about New Look Collection tailors. He told me that they are located inside a hotel named Areca Lodge and in short, we were pleased with the service and the quality stitching.

Coming back to resort, the food is delicious and "Deb and Paisan" are more like family now.
All in pattaya a great travel destination.

Room Tip: stay near adult pool/reception area for good internet
