Royal Cliff Grand Hotel sits up on the well-paved road on the hill called Phra Tamnak Road, appearing to be the greenest, as well as exuding the most formal vibe. It is the perfect base for those seeking a corner in Pattaya to be more secluded and relaxed.
The concept ‘Formal Luxury’ is a guide to the guestrooms’ design. The 19-storey tower comprises 372 rooms and suites; most of them are the Club Sea View Rooms. There are tons of things to do at the hotel, including a great spa experience. The special feature is the Spa Cafe, where healthy and nourishing cuisine can be ordered.
The hotel also provides an indoor space for kids called the Funtasea while adults can do many sport activities at the hotel. My favourite is a lighter activity like Nah Pah or Thai cooking lessons. A lot of guests attended the class and were always impressed.
At the Royal Cliff Grand Hotel, you’ll find four main restaurants offering different types of cuisine. The Chrysanthemum is a Cantonese restaurant, open for dinner only. A dinner can also be Italian at Rossini, but remember that it is closed on Wednesdays. Japanese food lovers can find premium sushi at Chamu all day. But if you are crazy for Thai food, Larn Thong is definitely your target. Note that the Thai restaurant has a special grand barbecue on Saturdays too. By the way, l like the name ‘A Little Beach More’, the hotel’s bakery. The cakes and coffees won’t be massively disappointing.
WHY I’D RETURN
The buffet breakfast dazzles with myriad choices of food is a good start in the morning. Plentiful dining options and the hotei’s enormous sports complex make it a desirable stay.
