Having been a regular guests at various hotels in Pattaya, I decided to try out the services of the fairly new condotel in Pratumnak Hill called Cosy Beach View. Not far from the ever popular Pattaya Walking Street, burgeoning nightlife and shopping area of Beach road, it afforded a more quiet environment (I did not have noisy neighbours or blaring music from the contesting pubs and nightclubs) yet I had every modern amenities and more with the comforts of home.
I easily contacted the owner of the unit and made a direct booking. It was hassle free and straightforward. A housekeeper met up with me in the lobby to pass the keys, show me around the unit and facilities. The room was clean, well-kept and came with a kitchenette that had a fantastic fridge, oven, microwave where I could heat up food or make small meals if I wanted too.
I had a nicely equipped kitchenette which came in very useful for my little rendezvous with the fresh market at the Bali Hai pier on Beach Road and you can read about it here about fresh crabs from the market!
There was also a glass balcony with deck chairs and a partial view of the sea, it was very peaceful and nice to sit on the balcony in the mornings or evenings.
By the way if you are the active type and cannot do without your daily exercise routine, there is a great gym that is more than fully equipped with a great view of the Pattaya cove on the 14th floor while you exercise!
Included also is an open air basketball court on the 14th floor where it would be great if you could shoot some baskets while enjoying the view, but alas I am not such an active person and preferred instead the remarkable pool with jacuzzi which was a skyline pool so it gave the impression that it was connected to the sea.
There was even a sauna room and a jacuzzi with a view if you wanted to relax. One thing good about this unit was that it is a low density condotel so that means that you can almost have the whole place to yourself
I also had a game of pool at the recreation room which was nice as I did not need to wait inline for use of the pool table and could play as much as I wanted.
On the whole the room afforded a reasonable view, bedding were comfortable and it was fairly priced for a service unit in the upper class district of Pattaya.
The condotel is very near to places like the Chocolate Factory Restaurant where you can get some beautiful hand-made chocolates and food or the Sky Gallery Restaurant and bakery for some really great budget food in Pattaya. The Sky Gallery has a beautiful view, food is inexpensive and great for early morning breakfast as the sunrises or dinner during sunset. These places are just 5 minutes walk from the condotel.
Places that you can eat at nearby to the Cosy Beach View condotel. Articles to these places are in the links above
Thailand can be said to live on 7-11s so there is one in the condotel just at the back of the building where you can walk through. It has everything you could want including instant heat up food which you can get them to do it or use the microwave in the room.
There are a lot of budget seafood in Pattaya which you can either eat there or buy back to enjoy. About 10 minutes away is the Pattaya Tower night market where again you can get some really cheap street food to enjoy back at your condotel unit. That is the best part of a fully equipped service apartment!
Nearby attractions are the Pattaya View Point, which gives you a sweeping view of the Bay of Pattaya and the famous Big Buddha Hill. Both of which are famous attractions in Pattaya.
About 5 minutes walk from the unit is a nice stretch of private beach, you can access this beach via some stairs near the Chocolate Factory Restaurant. There are speed boats at this beach that can bring you over to Koh Larn or better known as Coral Island.
I found the services at this unit #415 at Cosy Beach View to be reliable, reasonable and a very well-kept unit. So if you are looking for a budget stay in Pattaya of more than 2 nights but with easy access to popular places(there are motorbike taxis, song teaw jeeps, car rentals and transfer services) it is quite easy to get around, this unit is a good alternative.
Do give the unit try, as for me I find this place very convenient especially with a rental car at my disposal to explore places in Pattaya as they have secured parking too! You can book the room directly from the details below.
