Tucked away at the quiet end of Na Jomtien Beach, just a short drive from Bangkok city and Suvarnabhumi international airport, and a few minutes from the bright lights and non-stop nightlife of Pattaya, Ocean Marina Yacht Club is where to head when you’re looking to relax, party, explore, and indulge.
This is a large and stylish marina and yacht club which can hold its own against some of the best in Asia, offering luxury accommodation and a wealth of impressive facilities. One of the main draws has to be its location, surrounded by tropical beaches and idyllic islands, picturesque mountains and exotic countryside, and just a short trip to Thailand’s anything goes beach resort of Pattaya; infamous for its wild nights, fun atmosphere, and some first class shopping and entertainment venues.
Affiliated with Asara Villa and Suites in Hua Hin, you can be assured that this is a high quality resort which insures a stay centred on style, luxury, and comfort. Whether you are looking for a tranquil coastal getaway, a chance to explore the much talked about local beaches, islands, and golf clubs of Eastern Thailand, experience the party fun at Pattaya CIty, or all of the above, this is where you’ll want to stay.
A room with a view
The Ocean Marina Yacht Club is home to 51 boutique guest rooms with a variety of room types to suite your needs and budget. As well as offering epic coastal views, what’s most impressive of all is the concept and vibe of the hotel suites. Each and every room at the Ocean Marine Yacht Club has eye-catching decor with lots of teak wood walls, shining brass fixings, nautical portholes, and other class touches of marine life, making it feel like you are sleeping in a luxury suite on a big cruise ship.
While the rooms are extremely impressive and there is so much to do in the local area, what really make this luxury resort stand out are the incredible on-site facilities. Despite the temptation to explore the local area and cruise along the coastline, this resort has everything you’ll need and more for those times you just want to chill by the ocean side. The saunas, spa, and poolside decks may be tempting to many, but this is a resort which understands that coastal life isn’t just about soaking up the sun and doing as little as possible, and that many coast lovers prefer to keep active and full of energy (or need some fun ways to sweat out those late nights!).
To satisfy you sporty needs you’ll find the marina’s Grande Sports Complex which has 3 swimming pools, including an Olympic style 25-meter pool perfect for lane swimmers and splash pool for those who take their midday dip a little less seriously. Away from the water you’ll find well kept tennis and squash courts, a games room with billiard and pool tables, and a fitness centre and aerobic rooms for when you simply need a full on work out. The hotel also offers lots of private facilities and several rooms and halls available to cater for meetings, banquets, seminars, parties, and all kinds of events, so if you are planning something big don’t hesitate to contact them in advance and listen to their expertise and advice.
Don’t plan on watching the calories here, the culinary temptation is just too great, and you’ll want to be spending some significant time in the hotel restaurant overlooking the marina. Here one can indulge in some fine Asian fare and Western dining, while watching the many traditional Teak Thai boats pass in the distance to the juxtaposition of grand superyachts rolling in and out of this busy marina.
The smart choice
While the Bangkok crowds rush to the main city of Pattaya, navigating the bustling streets and booming bars of this popular beach resort, those with more class and wisdom simply head a short distance along the coast to the Ocean Marina Yacht Club, where you’ll find an alternative holiday haven offering a far more tranquil and stylish place to make base camp.
This is where the local elite and premier tourists head, experiencing the best of Thai costal life, within a short distance of everything which makes Thailand so amazing; tropical beaches, stunning scenery, first class shopping, irresistible food, and exotic nightlife.
The location is not particularly catering to gays, but welcomes people who wish to enjoy this.
