Villas in Pattaya, Thailand

The city of Pattaya and its offshore islands – located off the Gulf of Thailand, is approximately 145km south of the city of Bangkok, surrounded by Bang Lamung District. Once a fishing town, Pattaya first boomed as a ‘Rest and Recuperation’ destination during the Vietnam War, later developing into a family-orientated seaside destination.

The main sweep of the bay has two impressive beachfronts: Pattaya Beach is the main destination, with many of the town's restaurants and nightspots to be found on the section from Pattaya Klang south to the harbour. Jomtien Beach in the southern part of the bay area consists of high-rise condominiums, beachside hotels, bungalow complexes, shops, bars, and restaurants. Offering watersport activities and small sail boat hire, this area becomes increasingly crowded at weekends, with many Thai visitors coming from Bangkok.

Walking Street is a pedestrian area south of the beach and a centre for nightlife. Boyztown and Sunee Plaza provide locations for the gay community, while Muay Thai (Thai boxing) matches aimed at tourists can be seen at several open-air beer bar complexes.

There are some good shopping centres in Pattaya, while other activities include a wide choice of zoos and theme parks, such as the Elephant Village, Crocodile Farm, Orchid Farm and Underwater World. Sports include golf – there are 21 golf courses within one hour of Pattaya, many driving ranges and even a beginner-level golf course.

As soon as we were whisked away from Bangkok airport by the villa driver on our two-hour journey to The Tamarind, we knew we were in good hands. Turning into the flamboyant tree-lined driveway of the Buraran Estate we totally got into the privacy vibe of the place and relished the fact that this enormous empty estate was virtually all ours.

Dining was an absolute treat and we looked forward to each meal like lions at the only watering hole for miles. The staff, being Thai, certainly know how to cook this (in our opinion) most tantalising cuisine the world has ever seen. That said, they still throw together a mean pasta, and an even better English breakfast, and will serve it up anywhere you like. We breakfasted by the pool, lunched by the lake and ate nibbles and sipped champagne on the rooftop Sunset lounge.

Each bedroom is a themed adventure to another country, and together they have been designed to cater to all combinations and permutations of guests. We slept in the Africa room, surrounded by leopard prints and animal skins which made us feel like we were on safari. We were lucky enough to spend four days here and were never at a loss for things to do. We swam in the pool, went for walks around the estate, played tennis, billiards and petanque and spent many hours reading, watching the huge TV, eating or just being horizontal in the myriad places provided for just such a position.

The villa driver is on call for 10 hours a day (at a very reasonable charge) so do take advantage of the service to get out and see the local area. We had a great time sightseeing, including an outing to observe some of the infamous ‘netherworld’ tourism that Thailand is famous for.

Note: Guests at The Tamarind can also use the facilities of the adjacent Buraran Clubhouse (unless already occupied) with its two tennis courts, 16 x 9.5m swimming pool, additional 9m kids’ pool, and seminar room with drop-down screen projector and WiFi. There are six bedrooms here, which can be rented by the room to accommodate any overflow of guests at The Tamarind, up to a total of 12.
