Looking For A Jomtien Office or Jomtien Condo With A Jomtien Beach View

We're looking for a Jomtien Beach property to rent for 12 months. Over the weekend we went to see a Chaiyapruk property that is actually on Chaiyapruek 2 so a little too far back from the sea for what we want but we took the photos above because we liked it so much.

If you have any decent properties to view, our budget is up to 50000 Baht a month but we've seen some great properties closer to 10000 in The Village Shopping Centre (see below) on the Intersection of Chaiyapruk and Sukhumvit Road

Again, there's no sea view but we're open to brilliant ideas and a range of properties. That sea view though is kind of important as is a pool and a fitness room. We liked the gardens and two office spaces at The Village below.

Jomtien Beach Rainbows


This is the first rainbow we've seen from Jomtien and it was quite spectacular in real life. It was possibly the largest rainbow we can recall ever seeing, but either way it stretched over Koh Lam (or Koh Larn) island and stayed for about 20 minutes for the time we observed it. 

How long it was there before we saw it is hard to say but it was broad and deeply coloured. It felt like a new day, and today in our Facebook streams we came across this about rainbows.

Dragon Beach Resort - Тайланд, Паттая

Most visitors to Jomtien end up on the more crowded Northern side of Jomtien beach where the larger hotels are, but in terms of value and proximity to the beach there's a handful of hotels towards the Southern end of Jomtien Beach Road that represent much better quality than the better known names. 

Dragon Beach Resort is one example of these desirable hotels. It has a front facing complex on Jomtien Beach Road and a secondary building on Soi 16 close by. Both are elegantly decorated in a modernist and hip manner with Chinese customers usually seen to be on the beach front side and Russia guests residing in the non beach facing side. Our guess is this is done by the travel agents so if you have a preference you may wish to book direct, though in our opinion the Soi 16 side is more chilled out than the hustle of the beach facing hotel front.
