Rabbit Resort
Ranked #3 of 456 Hotels in Pattaya
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Honestly the best place i've seen in years. This small and traditional thai style resort is right next to a wonderful beach. 10m from the hotel, just across a walkway. Not that you need to use the beach since the hotel has several small and quiet pools all nestled in between the 2 storey wooden resort buildings. The rooms are spacious and clean with elegant interieur. This place is actively owner operated and they spend a lot of attention at the well being of their guests. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful.
For me this business trip to pattaya turned into a very positive experience since i picked the right and quiet place adjacent to the city but also far enough from the entertainment areas. Thank you, Rabbit-Team for this experience!

Stayed: April 2014, travelled on business

Dear Lovely German Guest - Location for a hotel is very important. We are very lucky to have the perfect location for Pattaya. We offer travelers the best of both worlds: A serene quiet environment directly on Dongtan Beach that has lush landscaping and an abundance of nature. The flip side is we are 15 minutes away by car from downtown Pattaya where the action is. In other words, you can experience a quiet oasis until you choose the nightlife. Most of our guests are so happy to return to Rabbit Resort after venturing out. Thank you so much for highlighting this point in your review. Cheers from Rabbit Resort, Mrs. Rabbit Deborah

Just retutned from spending 11 nights at Rabbit Resort what an experience resort far enough away from hustle&bustle of Pattaya but close enough for the the odd lively night.Staff at Rabbit were friendly very efficent and helpfull nothing was to much trouble,from the cleaning staff right up to owners Mr&Mrs Rabbit not forgetting the manager Windy always around tending to guests needs with a cheerful smile. On the food side plenty of variety at Breakfast and well prepared,over the 11 nights we stayed we ate at the Resorts Restarurant "The Steak House" on 3 occasions reasonable priced and food prepaired to a very high standard.My wife and I do'nt write reviews on hotels we visit but with Rabbit we felt we should share our pleasures.Rabbit fully deserves i'ts rating as No1 in Pattaya if you should ever see a negative review about Rabbit Resort take it with a pinch of salt as this is one of the best and most pleasurable Hotels we have stayed at well done Rabbit.

Dear Harry 1948: Wow thanks for the glowing remarks and happy thoughts!! You are right, our resort is not just the management, Mr and Mrs. Rabbit and Windy. It is the entire staff that make the difference here. It's our hardworking 4 gardeners that keep the forest and tropical garden lovely.
Our 5 guards that also help with luggage - multitasking guys. It's our 3 engineers lead by "A Everything" - we call him that because he really knows everything about the resort. Our darling maids that care about every room, and our front office staff 24/7 that try their hardest to make sure everyone is well taken care of. Lastly the restaurant staff - Yummy food lead by Chef Srichart. It's everyone all 60 persons, not just one person that makes our resort special. Thanks again and hope to see you next time - Deborah Mrs. Rabbit

A small and very friendly resort set in an area of tropical vegetation that provided a quiet relaxing time after our stay in Pattaya. A warm welcome from the owners and showed to our "pool view" room. The rooms a very "Thai" which we liked with full facilities - except no bath but that was the same for 3 of our 5 hotels this trip.
Although there were beds available on the beach we tended to spend our days by the adult only pool. The beach was better than Pattaya's main beach but still very crowded with sunbeds (but few occupants) and the water was not welcoming.
There was a much better selection of restaurants including the Rabbit's than at Pattaya and we had some really good meals. Breakfast had a good selection with coffee made to order.
The hotels arranged a trip to see a show for us and that went very smoothly.
The only gripe we had was they arranged our transfer back to Bangkok - slightly more expensive than if we had done it ourselves but after a difficult trip from Bangkok we thought we should play safe. In the event we had a fairly old car with poor air can and a driver who spent most of the time with various instruments cleaning his ears.

We have informed the car company we used to follow your comments. At Rabbit Resort, we have already put in place additional policies to make sure this doesn't happen again. Thank you so much for letting us know. Glad you enjoyed your visit and thank you very much. Deborah Mrs Rabbit

We (Family of 4, with 8 and 12 Year Old kids) spent a lovely week in Rabbit Resort, I can summarize our visit wit a definite, we will come back.
Despite a little incident with the pre-arranged transportation from Bangkok airport, our stay was perfect. Is worth to mention that hotel staff promptly worked out the transportation "issue".
Main highlight for hotel is the people all the hotel staff (Housekeeping, reception, kitchen, maintenance..) is warm and welcoming, always smiling and looking forward to provide any help or any service you may require.
Second highlight is the location, Rabbit is like a little oasis in the middle of packed touristic destination. All the rooms are surrounded by tropical vegetation, it is just right on the beach, which is a plus in Pattaya area, most hotels are "by the beach" or "close to", but Rabbit is just right on the beach.
Food at restaurants is very good at a very fair prices. The menu is good, and staff is always happy to attend any special request you may have.
If you are used to big chain resort vacation, keep in mind this is different, this is much better, you get everything you need, but in a very friendly environment. We think that the permanent presence of Mr and Mrs Rabbit supported by Windy and all the hotel staff makes a great difference.
This hotel can be defined like the right place for a peaceful holiday retreat in the outskirts of the crazy Pattaya.
Last but not least, it was my daughters birthday on our checkout day, and they offered her a very nice birthday cake during breakfast. It was a great surprise we all enjoyed a lot.

Hello dear Oscar 1972:
Thanks for the great review, so happy your daughter enjoyed the special birthday cake. Our staff always sing "Happy Birthday" and tries to keep the candles from blowing out - sometimes difficult when you are on the beach with lovely breezes. Most guests are very surprised we remember their birthday, we always check their passport at check-in to make sure we don't forget. Of course, it's a "low calorie" cake (not really) lovely and scrumptious. We try our best to please all guests at all times. Today one room really wanted to have fresh mango and our chef Srichart was happy to order a special selection for their dinner tonight. That's service = kindness, our motto. Thanks again and happy traveling from bunnyland. Deborah Mrs. Rabbit

The Rabbit Resort is quite accommodating and the facilities first class. My partner and I often get away to Dongtan Beach for some privacy and frolicking on the beach.

The abundance of masseurs on the Dongtan beach make for a fun afternoon and the hotel is guest friendly with no surcharges for our overnight guests.
I highly recommend the nearby Jomtien Complex as it has a great cabaret and an ample scattering of bars/restaurants.

Hello Khun Suteetat, Sawadee kha:
You are right - Rabbit Resort is perfect for a weekend holiday away from busy and noisy Bangkok. We often have guests stay with us who live in the Bkk metro area. Jomtien town is just a few minutes walk from the resort where there are hundreds of restaurants and shops. We have a perfect location, the best of both worlds. Tranquil and quiet at the resort (no discos or bars near us) just the soothing sound of the ocean. When you want action, it's a short 5 minute stroll to the corner and you are in the commercial center. Downtown Pattaya is only 15 minutes away by car. Thank you and hope to see you again soon. Deborah Mrs. Rabbit

A “relative” oasis from the happening’s of the Pattaya area which provides some degree of normality. The resort has a very much rabbit theme (no live rabbits mind you!), while the owner Mrs Rabbit has a hands on day-to-day presence. Mrs Rabbit and manger Windy are very proactive to work the resort, they communicate with guests and make you feel welcome; rather impressively, they knew our names as we arrived to breakfast even though we checked in at midnight. Breakfast is buffet style, overlooks the sea front and with a good selection.

Rooms are cottage style, all with balconies, with each having two separate units (ground and first floor), all come with a small kitchenette. The cottages are located inside a mature garden, which leads out to the beachfront where the resort has their own beachfront umbrellas. This area of Jomtien beach is quiet; the access road in front of the hotel is closed to traffic between 10am-5pm. There are two swimming pools, an adult only and a kid pool.

In general, we found the staff for the most part very switched on throughout with most offering a friendly greeting when seen.

Wi-Fi is available within the restaurant and swimming pool area but not the cottages; generally, we found it very fast although some days it seemed not as good.

The resort arranged a car pick up to and from Bangkok airport, transfer time from Bangkok old airport (Don Mueang) was two hours while most of the route is via expressway.

Clearly, the Rabbit Resort is very popular amongst families, couples and singles. There are many other resorts to choose from within the area but most are very mediocre (have stayed in some), therefore even though this resort is pricey, it is worth paying for.

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to the swimming pool

Stayed two nights this past weekend and really enjoyed everything about this hotel. From the location, to the delightful owners, to the two pools, the restaurant, the wonderful bungalo and especially the warmth and hospitality of the staff. A real gem! Totally recommend it especially if you want peaceful quiet in the madness of Pattaya around you, want to be near the gay beach and if you enjoy lots of greenery around you. Loved the fact that it has its own access and part of the beach with umbrella's and chairs, loved the adult pool and the restaurant right on the walking pedestrian pathway. The rooms are very spacious and have all the amenities. Lots of channels on TV too. Thanks for a great weekend. Will be back to your place if I come back to Pattaya. And thanks for the stuffed pink rabbit gift!

Room Tip: I like the second floor as you have a nice balcony and view...

Wow - you covered everything in your review. Thank you so much for remembering all the details. We are lucky to have our own beach area right in front of the resort. Pragop - our Beach Boy is well trained and provides excellent service at the Beach. We offer all drinks and food from our varied menu - Thai and Western. Pattaya is a big city now, but our guests have their own slice of beach heaven at our Beach area. Of course you can also select one of two pools - adult or family. Thanks again for your kindness - Deborah Mrs. Rabbit
