Royal Cliff Beach hotel at Pattaya can be an ideal location both for business and for leisure. You will like the ambience of the hotel.
Introduction - I stayed at the Royal Beach Hotel, one of the four 5-star hotels within the vast complex of the Royal Cliff Beach Resort.
First Impression - from the bellhop to the receptionist, every single staff was very pleasant and greeted me with a 'wai' and a smile. The check-in was executed proficiently and professionally even though there was a line of about a dozen different families arriving at about the same time. The bellhop who escorted me to my suite took time to show me the different features of the room including the view of the swimming pool.
Room - my mini-suite was well appointed and decorated in pastel beige and cream which I like very much. There was a small sitting area looking out to the swimming pool. Definitely was more than sufficient space for one person occupying the room.
Breakfast - the buffet spread was of very high quality with one section featuring local Thai fare.
Location - in a very private corner of Pattaya atop a cliff overlooking Royal Cliff Bay. There is no public transportation to the hotel. You need to get a cab there. It appears that the local tuk-tuks are also not permitted to enter the hotel which is built on private estates.
Unique Quality: A complex of four different 5-star hotels within private estate with an almost private beach.
Only hotel in Asia to be inducted to the Travel Hall of Fame by Travel Trade Gazette and PATA.
School of Thai Culinary Arts offers lessons on Royal Thai cuisine.
Cliff Spa overlooking Royal Cliff Bay offers different spa packages at two of the hotels within the complex.
Royal Cliff Wine Club with a walk-in cellar housing nearly 1000 variety of premium wines.
You know what people say about Pattaya... It's probably Asia's biggest cluster of go-go bars, sex peddling and Gawd knows what. Anyone can accuse me of being a prude (I am not, but Pattaya just brought out the schoolmarm in me) but I was actually scared to death of going to this city. So when the company sent me as a representative for an industry convention and got me to stay at Royal Cliff, I was relieved.
Royal Cliff is waaay, waaay off the street where all the bars are. It's a quiet enclave with its own beach cove, so at least I didn't get bothered by junk peddlers, female street walkers. To people who might be offended by this statement, I know they have every right to hawk their "trade" and make a living, but seeing women offer themselves on a daily basis is not my idea of cultural immersion. Many tourists and officials have turned a blind eye on this, but for me, its extremely painful to take a break knowing a sex trade is happening 10 feet away.
Anyway, going back to Royal Cliff... What's great about it is its fairly secluded to everything. Its the more affordable version of Royal Cliff Grand, so you get a sense of exclusivity. Plus the cafe food is not bad either. The Royal Cliff Spa is also very good (but being Thailand where you can get good massages anywhere, this place is quite overpriced... If you don't feel like paying 1500 baht for a massage, then I suggest you hie your massage-hungry bum somewhere else.
We stayed at Royal Cliff Beach for our honeymoon and it was an amazing experience.
The hotel and resort are fantastic, set on a cliff overlooking the sea, and just 5 or 10 minutes from the centre of Pattaya by car. It will cost about 100 baht to get to town from the hotel, which has a great limousine service. There is a private beach for the resort which is great, and so relaxing. Water sports are available from the beach and can be booked locally.
There are many restaurants in the hotel, from traditional Thai to European and Chinese. All are well worth a visit, and although listed as the most expensive restaurants in Pattaya they are still only about €40 for a couple for three course dinner and beers! So much cheaper than home!
The pool area of the hotel is great, with loads of space for guests. The swim-up bar is great for refreshments and the staff are extremely attentive.
This hotel comes highly recommended. We're going back this August so will post again!
Unique Quality: The most amazing hotel and staff in the world! Amazing views from all rooms in the hotel, and a great choice of restaurants and things to do.
The staff are the best ever!
Directions: Quiet setting overlooking the city of Pattaya
If you're not here to sample some of Siam's sinful secrets then you can also treat yourself to less indulgent hedonistic pleasures right at the resort.
At the Cliff Spa you can relax with massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs.
There is also a Wine Club with it's very own walk-in wine cellar where you will find over 500 varieties of premium wines from around the world.
And then there is swimming, skiing, sunbathing, squash, sundowners and lots of other activities starting with "S" that do not necessarily include sin.
The Royal Cliff Beach Resort is set in a 64-acre tropical estate overlooking the Gulf of Siam. There is a choice of four hotels within the complex each with its own distinctive style from basic to luxurious accommodation.
There are ten restaurants to choose from so you are spoilt for choice dining here. Some cuisines include Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Italian, and various European dishes.
The Resort also has five bars offering beer and wines from all over the world. I can still remember the look on the barman's face after he poured me a Chimay Blue.
I don't think he believed beer could be so dark in colour. I was worried thatt he would tip it out as beer that has spoilt in transit from Belgium.
Unique Quality: The Royal Cliff Beach Resort also offers leisure facilities with 5 swimming pools, 7 tennis courts, 2 squash courts, a jogging trail, fitness centre with sauna and steam room, games room with a children's playground, private catamaran and 4-hole putting green and watersports.
It was fantastic!!! It was our honeymoon so we had big expectations!!!
I would definetly recommend this hotel. Service was excellent, it was very central to everything - only 100 Baht for a taxi to the centre. Food was out of this world. They have their own bakery. Restaurants to cater for every taste, chinese buffet, traditional thai, European, Italian and much, much more.
I would recommend eating out of the hotel, as it is much cheaper (hotel prices are far less than in the UK anyway!)
Unique Quality: There is an excellent tourist desk in Royal Cliff Hotel. Nothing is too much for the staff in the hotel and they will go out of their way to book any tours, trips etc for you.
Excellent pool which is located right on the edge of the beach, so if you fancy sand you have only about 100 yards to walk.
The hotel is stunning!! When you first enter through the doors you are greated by a fantastic marble lobby area and it takes your breath away.
This hotel offer 4 different buildings, i stay in the main building dating from 1974. The room are large and the bathroom are with marble, concrete terrace offer wonderful seaview. Service is good and the choice of pool and restaurants are illimited.
Unique Quality: Great service, large choice of pools and restaurants.
Directions: A landmark in Jomtien it's not difficult to found

hi my boyfriend and i are staying at the hotel above can someone please tell me what this hotel is like. we are going in august can you please tell me what the weather is like at that time of year we are also looking into going to patong beach for a day and would like to know the cheapest way of getting there and how long it will take cheers
It's the best hotel, or hotel complex, in Pattaya, You'll have a great time. There's a Tip and some photos on my Pattaya page, and for more info their website is www.royalcliff.com
It's on a hilltop outside the town - it's a bit of a walk but you can easily get a tuk tuk. Bargain on the fare, they try to charge tourists extra so you need to haggle.You either get one to share, so it's cheaper, or on your own and that's a bit more. When we were last there we didn't pay more than 30 baht for one to ourselves, but it may have gone up so check with the concierge at the hotel for the current rate.
If you just want the beach, use the hotel's private beach, it's very good.
Patong Beach is on the island of Phuket, the only way you could do a day trip there would be if you fly from Utapao Airport (near Pattaya) I think Bangkok Airways do this route, but I maybe wrong. The flight will be just over 1 hour and patong is about 30 minutes from Phuket Airport. Having said that August can be one of the wetter months on Phuket, it would be a pity do the trip just to sit in the rain. However you can fly direct to Samui and Chaweng beach is nicer than Patong and the weather there is better in August. the journey times will be about the same.
Royal Cliff is a large and quality complex and it's depending on wich bulding you go. Royal Cliff, Terracce or the best Royal Wing. Sheraton hotel, next door is certainly better.
On a another style Sugart hut bungalow is really thai atmosphere.
