“Tasteful, calm and service, service, service”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I'd read the 5 reviews and didn't quite believe them but Rabbit Resort really lives up to it reputation. We usually stay at Birds and Bees in Pattaya and it has the same feel, individual buildings rather than a block of rooms, lots of lovely gardens and family friendly but we'd actually give the edge to Rabbit Resort. The service was better. The rooms are more tastefully decorated. And I like Bird's and Bees.

Rooms were immaculately clean. They had plenty of kitchenware available. Sheets were lovely and although we didn't request it, there was a traditional Thai bed made up in our room that our son was able to use (and loved). There were two pools - one family, one adult only which is a great idea. Us families could make noise and splash about and play with the footballs they had thoughtfully provided while the adults without kids could enjoy their pool in peace. Breakfast was nice with plenty of options and homemade bread. Bread is usually dire in Thailand so this was a great touch. They could do with putting an extra teabag in the teapot but I couldn't go so far as to remove a star for this as when I'd brought my own teabags, they happily accommodated me too.

The staff were very friendly - even gardeners stopped to greet us. They kept smoking confined to areas where it couldn't bother anyone (and their areas were also pretty and included traditional furniture). The owners and management took time to say hello to everyone. My husband had asked for a bouquet of flowers for me. Not only did they provide the flowers, they also had an amazing "bouquet" of carved vegetables (which is a traditional Thai art) and a cake.

Pattaya can be very seedy but being here felt like you weren't exposed to it and could just enjoy being by the sea as a family. Oh - the pizza is really nice as is the green curry in the restaurant. We'd definitely love to go back.

Final p.s. - they're doing construction at the moment but they confine it to one part of the resort at a time. We were very worried about this before staying there but honestly never saw any of it while we were there. Its really not an issue.

I've been to the Rabbit Resort several times over the last 10 years and the principle of excellent service in traditional Thai houses and gardens is timeless and sets it apart from the the rest of the area. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you again - Tim and Tha

We came the 2nd time as we enjoyed the combination of a quiet well serviced oasis and Pattaya. You can just lay back and relax or find many interesting places like markets, seafood dining etc. close by.
We will sure come again!

I just finished a two week stay at the Rabbit Resort and my 4th time staying there. Once again, SPOTLESS grounds, my room cleaned and DISINFECTED everyday, everything EMMACULATE.
This place just cannot be beat by any hotel or place to stay in Pattaya. The owners have so much PRIDE in making sure this place is the best. The general manager - (Wendy-most BEAUTIFUL woman in Thailand) will make sure you are 100 percent happy and satisfied with your stay.
I have stayed at a lot of 5 star hotels in Pattaya prior to staying at the Rabbit Resort and NONE of them can beat this place!
It's a GREAT feeling coming back to the Rabbit Resort late at night and not hear loud music, SCREAMING AND YELLING. You only hear the beautiful ocean breeze and waves in a beautiful rain forest setting.
I personally like some of the night life myself, but there is a time for partying and a time for peace and quiet - and that's what you get at the Rabbit Resort.
The FREE breakfast in the morning is UNBELIEVEABLE. A HUGE spread of fresh fruits, cereals, juices, French toast, eggs, tea, fresh baked breads, coffee, you name it, they have it, and all prepared by a professional chef.
It just DOES NOT get any better then the RABBIT RESORT. Hope to see you soon.

My partner & I just spent 9 days at the Rabbit resort. It was our Anniversary, and upon check-in we had a lovely lunch at The Grill. At the end of lunch the Manager of the Resort, Windy, presented us with an Anniversary cake. So very thoughtful - thank you.
The garden setting of the resort is beautiful, with plenty of shady spots to escape the sun, especially around the adult pool. The pool is a great spot to read a book on one of the many sun lounges or lounge in the warm water.
The rooms were large and spacious (we stayed in an upper garden room), and with all amenities.
We noted that the resort is undergoing a renovation of rooms over the next 6 months, so I look forward to seeing what they do with the rooms. I also understand that they will be putting in a fitness centre as part of this renovation.
Situated right on the beach, the resort has its own set of sun lounges & umbrellas in its own section of the beach.
The staff were really friendly and greeted us each morning, including Mr & Mrs Rabbit, and the resort Manager, Windy.
The only thing that could be improved was the TV reception on some channels wasn't good, but this is a minor issue.
Thanks for a great stay.

We read the rave reviews, we looked at the photos, we were expecting something special, ... not for one moment were we disappointed. Having spent the most peaceful and stressless 13 days here with my 3 children, we are truly sad to leave this oasis of beauty, friendliness and fun. Mr & Mrs Rabbit along with their super friendly staff have created a resort that offers it all. A heart felt thanks to all the wonderful staff who made each of us feel so special.

Sawadee kha, hello guest from Dublin, Ireland. Our goal is to provide an oasis for guests while staying in Pattaya. Especially for families. Our rooms were purposely designed to attract this consumer group. Our two swimming pools also cater to couples and adults. We are all so happy that you enjoyed your visit, best bunny wishes to your darling family. Deborah Mrs. Rabbit

Just experienced our first stay at the Rabbit Resort. We had a 5 day stay at this great resort where we were treat so well by all of the staff. A special shout out to Windy who is just a little dynamo who never stops and your every need is attended to in the blink of an eye. Mr & Mrs Rabbit were in touch with their guests every day and this added to the personal touch. We enjoyed time around the poolside that is nipping clean as well as some time on the beach. Again we met an amazing old guy "Sam" who at the age of 74yrs served us drinks on the beach and enjoyed a bit of friendly banter. The beach is kept clean and tidy and was wonderful. The rooms are big and spacious and the food was a delight. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Pattaya and would recommend this resort to both couples and families alike.
One tip for the resort would be having umbrella's around the poolside & a fitness centre.

Room Tip: Choose upper rooms.

Hi JulieC thanks so much for your ideas and review. Glad you mentioned the fitness room, we will be adding this during our renovation stage this summer. My husband and I weight train 4 times per week. We love keeping physically fit and will offer this to our customers as well. When planning the landscaping we located plants so that umbrellas would not be necessary. However, we are happy to provide one anytime just let us know. We really do listen to our guests comments and always plan to incorporate their idea. We are always striving to be better. Thank you again cheers Deborah Mrs. Rabbit.
