We have just returned home from our amazing honeymoon spent at the Rabbit Resort. The hotel is a beautiful peaceful oasis about 3 miles away from the bustling resort of Pattaya although it's only a 10 minute walk to the less frantic Jomtien beach road area where there's plenty of bars and restaurants. Baht buses are plentiful to take you into Pattaya and cost 20Baht, about 40pence and drop you off 2 minutes walk from the bustling walking street area in Pattaya.
The service at the Rabbit Resort from the staff was first class. Even though we arrived early, we were checked in quickly and efficiently and shown to our room. We stayed in one of the resort's 'antique' rooms, a ground floor spacious room which was a fantastically appointed room. We had a big lounge/kitchen area, a separate bedroom with a king sized bed and a large bathroom. The air-conditioning and ceiling fans worked well to keep the temperature in the room ideal for us. The adult only pool area was a god send and a lovely quiet area of relaxation. There was a child friendly pool on site too.
The bar/restaurant is next to the beach road, which is closed to traffic between 1000 and 1700 but is still quiet even when the road is open. The bar is well stocked with an array of beers, wine, spirits and cocktails all reasonably priced. Breakfast was buffet style and there was plenty of hot and cold food available which was replenished on a regular basis.
The lunch and evening meals served up were of a very high quality and also very reasonably priced. We wished we'd eaten more at the hotels restaurant during our stay.
The staff at the hotel are so friendly and courteous and nothing is too much trouble for them. A special mention though has to go to the hotel manager Windy who works tirelessly to make sure everyone is looked after. Everytime we saw her, without fail she would ask us if our room was ok and was there anything she could do and when we did need something she sorted things for us quickly and with the minimum of fuss. She is by far the most attentive hotel manager we've ever met and an her enthusiasm and tireless work rubs off on the rest of the staff.
Windy, We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our honeymoon perfect. The owners should be very proud with how you run their hotel, you truly are a fantastic lady.
In our opinion, the Rabbit Resort is well worthy of it's rating of being Pattaya's number 1 rated hotel on trip advisors. We can't recommend it enough and we'll be definitely returning there in the future.
