Where to Stay in Pattaya for Your Holiday?

Central Pattaya from Phra Tamnak hill.

Pattaya isn’t one big city. What’s referred to as Pattaya is actually an area on the Gulf coast of Thailand that includes Na Kluea, or North Pattaya, Central Pattaya, Phra Tamnak, Jomtien and Na Jomtien. Deciding which is the best place to stay in greater Pattaya is largely a matter of preference. Some people visit just to bask on the kilometers of beaches, some come for the nightlife and excitement, and many come to experience the golf courses and visit the outdoor attractions. We’ll explore the different areas that make up the region of Pattaya so you have a better idea of where to stay.

Greater Pattaya Resort Area

The greater Pattaya resort area also includes eastern Pattaya, which is filled with attractions, such as Nong Nooch Gardens, Khao Kheow Open Zoo, golf courses, lakes, and natural green areas. The entire Pattaya region offers a wealth of places to stay, depending on your interests. We’ll introduce you to the region’s main areas.

North and Central Pattaya

If your only impression of Pattaya comes from pictures you’ve seen, the images are probably of Central Pattaya. The northern area, also known as Na Kluea, is known for its high-rise condos along the beaches, upscale restaurants, and shopping malls. North Pattaya begins at the northern end of Pattaya Beach.
Central Pattaya, with its beach, walking street and thousands of restaurants, bars and nightspots, is the entertainment capital of the region. It’s also the location of the ferry pier transporting tourists and visitors out to Ko Lan, the nearby island in the Gulf of Thailand. The city has some of the region’s best shopping malls and outlets, including Terminal 21 Pattaya, Central Pattaya (shopping mall), Outlet Mall Pattaya, Central Marina, Royal Garden Plaza, and Mike Shopping Mall.

Phra Tamnak

Phra Tamnak is an upscale residential area that straddles the hill between Central Pattaya and Jomtien. It offers panoramic views of the gulf, cooling breezes, and many boutiques and restaurants. The area is also home to spacious condo buildings and a few hotels. It is known for its small and quiet beaches.


Jomtien is sort of a sister town to Pattaya over the hill. It offers a long beach with plenty of hotels, restaurants, bars, and condos. Jomtien also has a slightly slower, laid-back atmosphere. There are not as many lights and noises as in Central Pattaya, and it’s a popular choice among retirees.

Na Jomtien

Na Jomtien offers a quieter tropical experience.

It’s a not-so-closely-guarded secret that most experienced visitors don’t actually stay in Central Pattaya. These travelers have learned that further down the coast is the perfect place to book a room for a getaway weekend or more extended holiday. Jomtien and Na Jomtien are the favorite destinations for frequent visitors to the Pattaya region.

The area of lower Jomtien offers kilometers of uncrowded beaches close to a variety of eclectic restaurants and attractions and offers an easy commute into Central Pattaya for those who want shopping and nightlife. Na Jomtien provides all the attractions of Pattaya without the noise and traffic. The recent improvements to Pattaya’s Sukhumvit Road have enabled people heading for Na Jomtien to bypass the traffic of Central Pattaya completely.
