This recently opened resort of the Centara chain in Pattaya is high on my list of places to stay at in Pattaya, especially with children!
Besides a spectacular architectural design, looking in from the ocean, and having 555 rooms at your service, the main attraction is are the 5 differrent pools and the "Lost World" theme throughout the resort which features an extensive water park including swimming pools, children's pool, infinity pool, lap pool, lazy river, waterslide and waterfalls and other aquatic activities in the water park. All free to access by guests!
The pools as seen from a hotel window, your kids will leave this place with tears in their eyes! It will get me excited, that's for sure!
The resort is located on the Northern end of Pattaya you are on Naklua and Wong Amat Beach on 230 meters of fine sandy beach.
There are family rooms and lots of children activities in the resort; a large extensive kids club and a daily activity programincluding an indoor Cam Safari and games rooms for 3 to 9 years old while teenagers have a separate E Zone games room. A Pattaya dream come true!
All in all a fantastic deal if you visit Pattaya with your children.
Although I haven't stayed here yet, I had the opportunity to visit the Kata beach Resort on a couple of times, the last time very recently when I was in Phuket last month, December 2009, for a PADI Course Director update and we had the meeting in one of their conference rooms. Some friends of mine have also stayed at this hotel, which gave me the opportunity to check out some of their rooms.
It is very nice, big and luxurious and is set amidst lush tropical gardens and overlooks the Andaman Sea. The resort is only 15 minute drive away from Phuket town, and the popular Patong Beach. You can enjoy a range of Asian Western and Mediterranean dishes at one of the four restaurants. The location creates a peaceful and exotic atmosphere for total relaxation away from the crowd although you're still very conveniently at the easy going Southern corner of Kata.
The swimming pool is really nice and offers a great view over Kata Bay.
Facilities at the resort include boutique, baggage handling, car rental, salon, currency exchange, and an on-call doctor.
A great and quiet location with a medium ranged price tag.
