Only one-and-a half hours’ drive from Bangkok, X2 Vibe Pattaya Seaphere Residence is a new hip hotel for you to step into a world of sunsplashed beaches. Come feel at home here – a chic, modern and stylish four-star hotel nestled on the coast in Na Jomtien, Pattaya.
SETTING THE SCENE
As gen X, the first impression I got as soon as I stepped into the hotel was ‘wow’. Not that huge in size, the hotel instead attracts you with its unique design and welcoming staff. There is a should-not-miss corner of the lobby with a fountain. It is a great spot for your Instagram photo! Other than that, the infinity pool and sky bar on the eighth floor is a perfect place to sip your cocktail and watch the golden sunset.
This hotel has everything for everyone. As a nature of generation Z, they like to explore. And here, you could easily do that as the hotel provides bicycles. You can ride around the hotel and absorb the local Thai feeling. It is the place for your ultimate holiday escape.
With 65 rooms in total, X2 Vibe Pattaya Seaphere Residence is space-efficient and stylish in its own unique way. The rooms here come in three types: One bedroom, One bedroom Sea View and One bedroom Premier. The rooms range from 35-55 square metres in size and feature cutting-edge designs. Even though it is a four-star hotel, X2 Vibe Pattaya Seaphere Residence’s amenities and service standards could be compared to many five-star resorts.
With the modern designed property and contemporary architecture, this place is a perfect beachfront stylish staycation for the generation Z and millennial travellers. Just like the slogan of the hotel says ‘STAY, CHILL, ENJOY’, guests can stay in this chilled-out hotel and enjoy many attractions nearby. Just in a short distance, guests can relish in local activities like Ramayana and Cartoon Network Amazone, Vineyards of Silverlake, Pattaya’s underwater world aquarium, Pattaya floating market, Buddha Mountain, the newly opened Swiss Sheep Farm and many more.
Indulge in an all-day fusion dining experience at the stylish 4K Café. The name is pronounced as ‘fork’ and you sure would not be disappointed here! Located on the eighth floor with the best service and taste, they are ready to serve you with a sumptuous meal including mix of Asian, Thai and International cuisine. Satisfy your appetite at any time of the day with the serene setting.
I had the mouthwatering Western Set Menu, which consisted of mild mushroom soup served with truffle cappuccino and homemade spaghetti with spicy seafood. I ended my meal with the chocolate mousse delight, which came with the set. It was delicious and satisfying. If you are more of a Thai food lover, they have a Thai Set Menu as well. It includes the tempting X2 Asian wrap, a tortilla wrap with spicy minced pork and egg. The main dish in this set is fried rice with local mackerel, chilli, garlic and shallots. Then comes the sweet tooth – mango sticky rice.
After you’ve soaked up some sun on the beach or enjoyed the nearby attractions, the poolside paradise awaits you. Vi Bar offers you the warm ocean breeze and a panoramic ocean-view poolside bar with the best beverages. Make sure to try the signature cocktails – X2 Vibe Delight, SeaPhere MOM and DNA.
WHY I’D RETURN
Why wouldn’t I? It comes at an affordable price and it is perfect for a long or short stay. Just like a condominium, it provides all the amenities and remains very convenient. Also, I love seafood and this hotel is surrounded by so many famous restaurants serving fresh seafood. I just really loved the first impression I got from the place and the overall atmosphere gave me the chilled-out vibes!
ONE OR TWO QUIBBLES…
Being a girl, I only found one quibble – there is no mirror on the dressing table! It gets a bit tricky to get ready in the bathroom with all your stuff lying outside, in front of the dressing table. Other than that, I enjoyed the stay as the overall atmosphere was fun and it gives you the holiday-at-home vibes.
