Amari Nova Platinum, Pattaya
Is located very conveniently on Pratamnal Road which is just a few minutes walking distance from famous Walking Street and near the road leading to Jomtien.
More importantly for me was the location near the Bali Hai pier, where the dive shop is located that I used for my wreck dive trips to Pattaya but also the close proximity to all other locations that I use for diving makes it very convenient.
The hotel has been freshly renovated in 2008 and is slightly more expensive than the average 1.000,-THB per night room that can be had in Pattaya. The Amari Nova Platinum starts around 2.000,-THB per night pending on special offers that can make the room slightly cheaper. Breakfast is not included though! On a recent stay in May 2010 the rooms were around 1.200,-THB per night + 10% service charge + 7% tax.
This Pattaya hotel has 78 guestrooms, featuring a 32” flatscreen television, a DVD player, free wireless Internet access and an array of modern facilities. Guests will enjoy a tropical garden, a large swimming pool, a jacuzzi and waterslide. The hotel offers all-day dining at Zia Restaurant, serving a great selection of delicious Mediterranean and Asian favourites. The pool bar also provides guests with refreshing tropical drinks and snacks.
I can recommend this hotel for your stays in Pattaya and the latest update after my stay in October 2009 is that there is construction under way which will see more rooms. That construction is almost finished, a new building has been completed already and by August 2010 a third building should be completed, where each room will have it's own PC.
