Rabbit Resort is located on Dongtan Beach in Jomtien. It is currently number 1 in the 400 odd list of hotels in Pattaya reviewed by Trip Advisor. It is not the most luxurious hotel in Pattaya but it is one of the best in terms of location and service.
Rabbit Resort is a 4 star hotel set back in a garden setting just a few meters from Dongtan Beach. There are no more roads or any commercial activity between guests and the beach. Part of the charm of Rabbit Resort is the quiet location, ideal for holiday makers looking to escape the loud brashness that is very much part of the Pattaya experience.
Accommodation at the resort consists of 49 villas in a garden setting. The owners are Mr and Mrs Rabbit (Thai husband and foreign wife) have deliberately avoided high-rise and high volume. Rather they prefer to focus on customer experience. All the villas are well-maintained with excellent facilities such as air-con, hot water, cable TV safety deposit box and fridge. Several of the villas have upstairs and some have kitchenettes.
The bedrooms are very spacious and have cool terra cotta floors. The furniture is not ostentatious but several of the pieces are antique; they have all been chosen with care. While the rooms don’t indulge in the modern fad for splashes of colour and don’t have all the bells and whistles of other hotels, they are luxurious and extremely comfortable.
Rabbit Resort has a popular restaurant and bar called the Grill House. It is located on the sand at Dongtan Beach. There is plenty of outside seating as well as shady seating for those needing to escape the sun.
The menu offerings at Grill House include pepper steaks, pork chops, grilled salmon, Thai soups, seafood platter, big burgers, curries, fresh salads and customised sandwiches. If you stay at Rabbit Resort you can opt for room and breakfast. Numerous comments on Trip Advisor and elsewhere complain about the same breakfast being served every day in hotels in Thailand. That’s just boring when you are on holiday! You can make requests at Rabbit Resort and they will try and get out your request for the following morning buffet. That is something that epitomises why Rabbit Resort is so popular.
