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.

Jomtien Beach by Pegas Touristik

Pegas Touristik are probably one of the largest tour operators in the Jomtien Beach destination for the inbound Russian market in Thailand. Their coaches can be seen 24/7 during the peak season, and from time to time during low season around the Pattaya and Jomtien area. 

Their video above is a recently posted promotional scene of Jomtien Beach that they published on their Twitter Account. 

It's not bad and we'd like to get to know them even just to say hello.

Thursday, 21 August 2014 - Thailand Holiday Villa Rental - Based in Jomtien

One of the most successful businesses in Jomtien is an online luxury villa rental business for holiday makers run by a friend of ours T Fernandes have the largest selection of luxury villas across Thailand in all the major destinations including Phuket, Pattaya, Koh Samii, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Krabi.

TVillas' customers come from all over the world including Hong Kong, United States, Taiwan, Russia, China, India, Europe and Australia. They book online and usually travel in groups such as family or friends. The cost of renting a luxury villa has a competitive edge over hotels, as the price per person diminishes the more people that book together. 

Couple this price value with the private pool that comes with 90% of the villas, the daily maid service and the optional kitchen chef as well as hired car, and a luxury villa starts to look a little more private and exclusive than some of the top and leading hotels you care to mention. In addition to the website deals TVillas also have some offsite  specials for extra discerning customers. The property below is an exclusive Phuket deal so if you wish to contact T, please do so directly as the property is not listed on
