Pools in Pattaya

Post by rocket » Sun Aug 18, 2019 2:07 am

I swim everyday when in Thailand. Enjoy staying at Yensabai because of the great location and what I like about the pool is that the water seems warmer than other pools I’ve used. I think it’s because the sun covers it most of the day, and it’s only deep in a small area.

Having stayed at Unixx I can say I dread using their lap pool on the 6th floor, as the water is definitely cold. The larger family pool is better temperature wise because it’s in the sun most of the day, but it’s very crowded.

The View Taley 5 pool is not bad, but it’s in Jomtien.

Can anyone recommend a place that has a nice pool where the waters warm? Or just your opinion on any of the many pools in the Pattaya area?

In Jomtien, the VT5c is closed for 4 months for major repairs. All the other VTs (except Vt7) have large, shallow pools for lap swimming. Also Jomtien Beach Condominium has two large pools.

Rocket,

View Talay # 1 (Thrapraya Rd. just before Threprassit Rd.) has a great olympic size pool with decent temperature. It's been a while since I've been there but they used to charge non-residents 100 baht for a towel and a beach chair.

My favorite pool in Pattaya is at the Amari Orchid Hotel on Second Rd. just before you reach the Dusit Resort. Large irregular shaped pool, great ambiance, warm water and a floating bar. They also used to charge non-hotel guests 100 baht for towel and chair...cute waiters too.

You've probably been to Pattaya Park, but in case you haven't, they have the largest circular tidal pool in Pattaya with water slides and lots of eye candy. I could be wrong but I believe the entrance fee is 100-200 baht for the day and well worth it.

Splish...Splash!

Pattaya Park charges 100 baht per person for the whole day. If you want to leave for a while, they'll stamp your hand so you can reenter without being charged again.

Thanks for the replies. Up2u, I wasn’t aware that the vt5 pool was being repaired. I have a tenant staying there, hope they aren’t too inconvenienced. I remember a couple years ago when swimming there the tiles could cut your feet.

Dodger, the vt 1 and 2 pools look large and exposed to the sun all day, maybe I’ll rent a unit there. It would have to be in the A building closer to the road as the B buildings are more of a walk to the baht bus. I try to only use baht bus or motorcycle taxi as we all know how bad the roads are.They have crap balconies there but they did splurge a bit with the pools. I’ll absolutely check out Amari as I love that area. Too bad the gay bars are so far away from there. I like to have a drink at Siam Siam on occasion.

Yeah Undaunted, I have a friend who likes My View, I’ll have to check out that pool. It’s a bit further from Second Road though, might need a bike there.

Rocket, as you said you stay at Yensabai condo. My View is a 5 minute walk.

And how about good pools in Bangkok?

I sometimes stay at the Pinnacle in Bangkok, but their pool is a joke!

The MyView pool had an upgrade in the last 1.5 years and they have stopped doing the dive training there now
AFAIK it's a salt water pool (not sure if that makes any difference to any decisions)

On the Baan Suay topic I mentioned the pool. You don't have to stay there to use the pool. I don't know the fee, can't be much and I recall seeing adds for a special on Wednesday's that came with a pool side drink. It's a large pool and deeper than most hotel/condo pools. It's billed as a salt pool but perhaps just lightly salted.

On Second Road across from Central Marina is [email protected] The pool is on two floors on the roof. Again, you don't have to stay there to use the pool. I don't know the fee, perhaps more on weekends. Live jazz on Sunday. There's good food and drinks served pool side. Happy hour is now 4pm to 5pm.

What about Sansuk Sauna? It looks small from the photos. I like that swimsuits are optional. I don't know why Baan Suay does not have the same policy. Free willy.
