5 reasons to stay at Avani Pattaya Resort and Spa

I have tried to segregate my thoughts on what appealed to me at Avani Resort and Spa Pattaya under the following five headings and these are the reasons as to why I recommend the property as a stay option on your next family vacation to Pattaya in Thailand.

Location of Avani Pattaya Resort and Spa

Avani Resort and Spa is centrally located in the city of Pattaya. Within a walking distance of the property is the beachfront, the Pattaya night market, umpteen massage parlours for kids as well as families, food-joints and restaurants catering to a varied ethnic crowd from Indian to Srilankan to European, bigger malls and shopping arcades and boarding points to various island and city tours.

Avani Pattaya Resort and Spa

Only 90 minutes by car from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Pattaya is the closest major beach destination to Thailand’s capital. This vibrant coastal city is a must visit destination in Thailand as there is something for everyone. And, Avani is the best choice for family travellers.

In my opinion, there cannot be a better property at an affordable price which is so well connected with every attraction a city has to offer. There is a special gateway from the back to the beach from Avani Pattaya.

Avani Pattaya Resort and Spa

Located in the heart of Pattaya and overlooking the beach, the resort is only minutes away from the city’s hotspots and is connected internally to Royal Garden Plaza. This entertainment mall brings retail stores and family attractions and experiences together under one roof.

The Rooms at Avani Resort

We stayed in the executive suits of the hotel and they were well appointed and cosy. The ambience was soothing and I had a  little balcony as an extension to my room that overlooked the pool( oasis) inside the Avani Resorts and Spa.

Most of the basic necessities were provided for the guests from electronic safes to intercom. AVANI Sea View and AVANI Garden View Rooms have been redesigned to offer an improved use of space and a host of modern comforts. I was completely smitten by the classy drapes and bed covers. The design is contemporary and fresh and the neutral colour palette is subtle and stylish, creating a space that is restful and soothing.

Food and Dining Options at Avani Pattaya

I was bowled over by the food and dining options available at Avani Pattaya Resort and Spa. The management has gone to great extent to serve tourists from around the world. We were warmly served Indian food when we conveyed across to the Chef of our urge to satisfy the palate with some Indian cuisine.

The newly refurbished Garden Cafe Restaurant offers a tranquil respite for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The design style is organic, natural and uncluttered with warm textures and muted tones of plum, grey and shades of white. The varied buffet offers international fare and classic Thai dishes.

Ambience and Decor of AVANI

I was awestruck with the mini-tropical forest that thrived inside the premises of Avani Pattaya Resort and Spa. The joy was akin to glimpsing an oasis in a desert. Only that, there was a mini-tropical garden in contrast to the concrete jungle outside.

The hotel decor was chic and subtle yet with hints of traditional Thai artefacts, knick-knacks and influences. I super-loved this fusion!

The tranquil AVANI SPA offers a different approach to wellness, focusing on each guest’s individual needs rather than offering only standard treatments. The therapist conducts a consultation with the guest to accurately ascertain what treatment the guest really needs. Treatment options include Boost, Balance, Calm and Purify. Rejuvenating Boost treatments are the perfect antidote for those suffering from low energy and jet lag.

Balance treatments ground the body, mind and mood and Calm treatments release muscle tension, relieve anxiety and recharge the mind. Purify treatments offer the perfect detox. Guests can also enjoy outdoor treatments in the air-conditioned spa pavilions by the pool.

How to reach Pattaya?

Pattaya is just 90minutes from Suvarnabhumi airport, Bangkok and is well connected by taxis and buses. Bus fares usually start from 100 baht and a taxi ride starts from 1500 baht. Again, depends on the taxi driver and the prevailing charges.

What to do in Pattaya on a family vacation?

Family entertainment comes in the form of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, Museum of oddball finds, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, Ripley’s 4D Moving Theatre and Ripley’s Infinity Maze and Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum. And there’s more. Pattaya offers a wide range of entertainment for kids ranging from The Million Years Stone Park, Crocodile Farm, Upside Down House and Sheep Farm, along with the Cartoon Network-themed waterpark with over 13-acres of family raft rides, speed-racing slides and water-play fortresses.

Avani Pattaya Resorts and Spa

Pattaya is a water sports adventurists dream. From jet skiing to deep sea fishing, windsurfing, and wakeboarding, to parasailing and yachting, even flyboarding! There are numerous scuba dive centres with PADI dive training courses available for novices and experienced divers wanting to complete their dive master certification. The weather is fantastic all year round offering great visibility and diversity of dive sites and Coral Island is just a boat ride away, where the snorkelling and diving are amazing. For those who prefer a quieter beach experience should head for Tien Beach, Samae Beach or Naon.

Family stay option in Pattaya

Golfing enthusiasts will be delighted by Pattaya’s range and diversity of fairways and greens. Pattaya has over 20 championship golf courses and many of them have been designed by golf legends including Nick Faldo (Great Lakes), Jack Nicklaus (Laem Chabang), Gary Player (Sri Racha) and Robert Trent Jones (Eastern Star). The Siam Country Club is one of Thailand’s finest and most challenging courses and has played host to international tournaments on many occasions including the LPGA.

Apart from the above, the prime reason for recommending Avani Property is their hospitality and affable staff. With their able staff around, one can indulge in a stress-free family vacation at the resort.

Hope you too have a wonderful stay at this lovely property of Avani Resort and Spa at Pattaya in Thailand, during this festive season. Cheers!
