Phra Tumnak Beach
BOOK DIRECT - the best way to get the cheapest hotel rates on Thai beaches
When you cut out agents the hotel saves money, and some hotels return savings to guests as discounts.
Thus we identify hotels that GUARANTEE, in writing, discounts for guests who book the hotel directly. See the list of GUARANTEE hotels by the Thailand map, and contact them via the e-mail box on each hotel page.
The very cheapest rooms on Thai beaches are also sold in this site as DISCOUNT ROOM VOUCHERS, but they are limited. Click here to see all Thailand deals. Or e-mail Jade for help: firstname.lastname@example.org

Phra Tumnak is the headland that cuts the southern end of Pattaya Beach.
There is a series of short beaches here that host a wide range of beachfront hotels., from 5-star international resorts to budget beach cottages and sea view rooms catering to the Thai market from Bangkok. There is no access along the coast, so you get here by driving up the big hill at the bottom of Pattaya South, then turning right near the top.
The beaches here are small and narrow, and not special, though they fill one exceptional function in a noisy, high octance place like this – they provide peace & quiet from the hustle and noise of Pattaya city. Guests here can venture out night or day to enjoy the many activities that have made Pattaya so famous – good restaurants, entertainment, conferences, sporting activities, family attractions, golf, shopping, bars or wild nightlife – then retire to the tranquillity of the beachfront resorts here.
The huge Royal Cliff Resort dominates a large part of he headland. It has been here so long the area is generally named after it in English, being referred to as Royal Cliff headland. This has a whole complex with multiple facilities. The Intercontinental Pattaya, opened originally as a Sheraton, is a villa & spa resort next doot to the convention centre. Asia Pattaya is another resort that arrived early and bought up an expansive area for beach gardens. The quaint Birds & Bees Resort, built by the famous condom king of Thailand, offers beach cottages that slumber in a lush tropical forest. Golden Cliff House is small, and a distinctly Thai beach hotel, somewhat off-beat, and suitable for... well, those who like it.
All resorts here face directly west, offering the opportunity to enjoy sunset drinks while watching the sun dip into the ocean. And the opportunity to be close to the many high-energy attractions of Pattaya, while sleeping in tranquillity, not traffic.
