My wife and I stayed at the Rabbit Resort for three days R&R following a demanding three week trek in the Himalayas. Our stay was far too short, but wonderful and recuperative while it lasted. True to its name, there is an omnipresent "rabbit" theme to this resort that you would have to be blind to miss. Kitschy, but it works. There is a definite charm to the well-manicured grounds infused with bunny-paraphenalia of all sorts, fronting a quiet section of Jomtien Beach with two relaxing pools (one exclusively adult; one for families and children), multiple comfortable and spacious Thai-style bungalows, and a first-rate beach-front restaurant. The resort is tucked into a surprising verdant portion of the city between Pattaya town and Jomtien Beach that you could easily mistake for a top-notch tropical resort in the more upscale resort towns of Phuket or Krabi. You would not be faulted if you were to spend your entire vacation on the Rabbit Resort premises and never venture out to explore the town. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating, and genuinely intent that every patron have the best experience possible during their stay. Be sure to ask about the origin of Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit's name, and don't forget to try the delicious and reasonably priced young coconuts by the poolside. If I had one complaint about our stay, it would be that the bar has not yet concocted a libation to be served up in these coconuts with a colorful little umbrella sticking out. BTW, there is no spa on site, but an excellent nearby one recommended by the owners that will pick you up if (like us) you are too lazy to walk. Reasonably priced roundtrip shuttle between Bangkok airport and the Rabbit Resort can be arranged when booking; travel time 1.5-2 hrs each way depending on traffic.
