“Very special gem right on the beach in Jomtien with fantastic service good local style rooms and excellent food”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

This place us all about the service attitude of the "Rabbits" who own and run this exquisite small hotel with great service food and most importantly a relaxed mixture where east meets the.
The hotel although needing a coat of paint in places offers many of the features which make small family run hotels so memoable in Thailand. All mod cons are available in rooms and all over the hotel with wifi good tv etc.
the restaurant on the beach offers excellent steaks and local seafood
With good local dishes and a good breakfast.
Both Deborah and Paisan go the extra mile by offering personalized
Service iffering to gelp euth directions to local attractions restaurants etc. The beach is outside the front door with its own private and comfortable sun loungers and it is a long clean beach with good tree cover and massage available on the beach.
Like most beach areas in this area
There are a lot if vendirs trying to sell you domething but they leave you alone if you ignore their advanced. I have been to Pattaya
Maybe 30 times since 1972 mistly on golf tours and wish I had found this place before. Jomtien is so much nicer than anywhere in Pattaya although not as convenient to North Pattaya for the many golf courses in the area but for me it would be worth the extra 10 min drive to relax in the comforts of this resort.
To be honest the rooms are my taste with lots of wood and Thai furnishings and a good sized balcony with good comfortable chairs but the style may not suit everyone paticularly the younger set BUT
It is just so peaceful with the bedt personalized service you can get
They truly deserve the very high ratings they have received over the years abd I will return
Thank you to the Rabbits Paisan and Deborah for making my stay so enjoyable.

Hi spinner47 - What a nice review thank you very much. Our land is the main reason people love Rabbit Resort. There is a special energy that creates a calm and serene environment. As most know my husband inherited it from his parents that bought it about 50 years ago. It has always had this unique quality of relaxation. We have lived here for 15 years and everyday it is a pleasure to be here at this magical location. We really appreciate you staying with us - Best bunny wishes Deborah Mrs. Rabbit

I totally enjoyed my stay at the Rabbit. The staff was friendly and helpful. Its location on the beach but slightly off the beaten path provide a place to relax, but with easy access to the surroundings.

I highly recommend the Rabbit!

Hello Vince Italy - We are off the beaten path away from the noise and congestion. However, we are a Hop away from Jomtien town (5 minute walk) or downtown Pattaya (15 minutes by car). We are very fortunate to be at this location, it is easy for our guests to visit other parts of Pattaya not too far from Rabbit Resort. Thanks for your kindness - Deborah Mrs. Rabbi

The Rabbit Resort on Dongtaan Beach is a gem. It is located next to a small road that is a walking street only from 10 am to 5 pm. The cottages at the resort are tastefully done surrounded by beautiful landscaping of plants and trees. In the center is a pool to be enjoyed by all or if you want, just cross the road and you are at the beach where you can sit on lounge chairs under umbrellas.
We find that the service is excellent and the staff to be very friendly. The buffet breakfast is one of the best in the area. One can sit inside in the air-conditioning or choose a table outside where you will enjoy the cool breezes from the ocean.
We highly recommend the Rabbit Resort. Try it out, you will love it.

Hello TomM, many many people have praised our breakfast buffet. Our chef is really good at changing the food everyday so you don't get bored. Also, if you have a special request for Vegemite or vegetarian, or anything else we will try to accommodate your request. We offer a wide array of hot dishes, homemade breads, juices, fruits, vegetables and egg station just the way you like them. If you didn't notice we have an organic garden on our hillside where we grow many of our vegetables that we use in the restaurant. Thanks again for your nice remarks - cheers from Mrs. Rabbit.

Spent Chinese New Year at the Rabbit Resort. A tropical, tranquil oasis hidden behind palm trees and flowers yet right in the middle of Jomtien Beach. Total privacy. And only 15 minutes to Pattaya Central. Rabbit's owners are hands-on managers, exremely attentive, making sure all guests are well taken care of day and night. They and their staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Great food, with a fully stocked buffet breakfast each morning, and very romantically lit outdoor dining at night. Our bungalo was gorgeous, opened right onto the adults-only swimming pool. What a treat! Full-service travel desk on site, they arranged all our tours and golfing, private cars, no catches. We'd go back to this place in a minute. They understand and exemplify the meaning of "service"! Highly recommend Rabbit Resort to anyone wanting to be "near" Pattaya but not wanting to actually stay near all the noise.

Dear DiamondJim007 - Many people ask us about our service - why is it so different, so personal. Very good question. Looking back over the last 14 years it would probably be the passion and love of Rabbit Resort that makes the service special. It's not a job for those working or living here it is their life, their home and their desire to make sure they do the best possible job for the guests. Our staff are not college graduates or have higher education. They are sweet Thai people that care about doing the best job possible. As mentioned before - most of our staff have been here over 5 years, many since the very beginning. Thanks for writing and appreciating our service, we all try very hard to provide an excellent experience for each guest. - Deborah Mrs Rabbit

Rabbit Resort is really something special. The difference is the personal attention of the owners ('Mr and Mrs Rabbit') who have clearly worked enormously hard to create this relaxing retreat tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Pattaya. The resort is in a very quiet location, yet right on the beach. The accommodation is in traditional style, two-story Thai houses authentically furnished yet with all modern comforts. The gardens are beautiful - the lush trees and vegetation providing welcome shade from the tropical sun. Every detail of this very individual property has been carefully thought through by 'Mr and Mrs Rabbit' who personally greet their guests on arrival, each morning at breakfast and at other times during the day. The staff take their cue from the owners and are unfailingly friendly and efficient. The restaurant is also excellent with a high standard of Thai and Western food at similar prices to much inferior places up the road in Jomtien. We were made to feel exceptionally welcome in this beautiful, relaxing resort. Highly recommended! Nigel de B.

Room Tip: We paid a small premium for a room nearer to the pool. This was worth the extra for the lovely view...

Hello Perth Guest - Thanks for mentioning our landscaping. We have 4 acres of land and most of that is lushly landscaped. We have 5 full time gardeners diligently working to keep the forest and gardens looking lovely. When we started the resort we hired a Professor from the local University to help plan the landscaping. Lucky we did, he was familiar with plants that thrive along the beach front and can handle the salt air and the periodic brisk breezes. The gardens and forest of Rabbit Resort are the combination of many peoples hard work. We are thankful to everyone. Best bunny wishes - Deborah Mrs. Rabbit

Just had a 17 day stay at the Rabbit Resort. After 1 day we quickly realised why this was Trip Advisors number 1 rated resort in the area. Here are some of the reasons:
- The owners are with you almost 24/7, not in your face, but quietly in the background, ensuring that your stay is a pleasant one.
- The staff are extremely courteous and well trained.
- The accommodation was extremely pleasant and in a very private, tropical surroundings.
- The location is literally right on the beach within a 15 second walk from the resort and if you don't fancy the beach, there is an adult and childrens pool.
- The resort provided transport at your convenience to take you to shopping and alternate transport connections to the main area of Pattaya.
- A buffet breakfast is provided and if you wish the restaurant provides high quality meals throughout the day.
- Nothing that we asked for was ever too much for them to accommodate.

We will definitely return to the Rabbit as it is by far the most pleasant place we have stayed at and again that is mainly due to the owners, who lead by example and the staff who are extremely friendly and helpful.

You can't go wrong if you pick the Rabbit Resort for a holiday.

Dear Wasaga Beach, Canada guests - one of the best things about owning a resort is the great people you meet along the way. We are always exchanging stories and adventures with our guests which makes it so much fun. One minute you talk with people from England, the next from Canada and then Australia. All in a matter of 15 minutes. It is fantastic, we love meeting everyone.
Thank you so much for staying with us we really appreciate you choosing Rabbit Resort. Best bunny wishes - Deborah Mrs Rabbit

I booked this resort because of its name - " Rabbit Resort" as my baby boy was born in a rabbit year. We stayed 3 nights there in a room deep in the jungle, which is a bit far from the beach. The service there is guaranteed as Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit are actually actively involved in daily management of the resort and supervise the staff. You can expect a very nice environment, tastefully decorated and spacious rooms, friendly staff and good location. The only inconvenience I encountered was the WIFI signal, it was nil in my room and I had to go to the reception every time I wanted to surf on the internet, I understood from the couple that they were trying their best already and I even received a voucher for the restaurant from Mrs. Rabbit for the WIFI problem which was a nice surprise.

Hello Ms. Hong Kong: Thank you so much for the kind review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. While you were here we were in the process of upgrading our internet system by adding a few additional antennas so it could reach all of our rooms. Unfortunately, the wifi was not working perfecting for a couple of days during that time. However, our free wifi is working great now and can be used in all rooms and the entire resort area including at the beach. Happy wishes to your darling baby bunny, thank you again.
