Next to the Avenue Mall and a block from the beach, the Hotel Baraquda is a contemporary crash pad with a super-central location in Pattaya. The 72 guestrooms are bright and breezy, with a turquoise and sand color scheme, and all come with iPod docks, DVD players and tea- and coffeemaking facilities. Splurge on a Baraquda Suite for a separate living room and a Jacuzzi. There’s an impressive array of facilities given the low room count, including a spacious outdoor pool, a rooftop bar and restaurant, and a serene spa with a modern fitness room. The Sea restaurant is a split-level all-day dining spot overlooking the pool, and the Sunset Lounge serves light bites and cocktails up on the roof.
In the Area
Pattaya’s main attractions include the Nong Nooch Tropical Garden elephant show, the spectacular Tiffany transvestite review and the Floating Market. In nearby Wong Amat don’t miss the massive all-wood Sanctuary of Truth Temple. Beach Road in central Pattaya is lined with bars and bargain markets, while south Pattaya’s Walking Street is a unique and noisy zone of adult go-go bars and eateries.
How to Get There
I have been many times in Pattaya, and stay in Baraquda hotel 3 times already. Everything is the best always. Hotel near walking street (about 10 mins walk) and near many interesting places (like Avenue, Night Bazaar, etc). Staff is very friendly. Very good service. Thanks a lot. See you next time :)
I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was very good. I got upgraded to a suite and the room was cool. It was very big and I liked that they had a jacuzzi in the room.
i was really looking forward to see the top bar but it was unfortuantely under renovation when I was there. So I bet that top bar will be great when it´s finnished. I think the pool area was nice to.
The staff was very friendly and helped me with everything I asked for. They even opened up the spa area that had closed for the day where I could use the shower/change before I left the hotel late in the evening. Thats great service.
I have stayed at this hotel every time I have visited Pattaya and each time the staff manage to exceed my expectations. I would like to personally thank Gaf Gaf, Pete, Jack and the rest the team for making my stay great. The staff make an effort to know you and are really helpfully, going out of their way to get things done for you. A special shout out to one of the bellboys whose name I just can’t remember but he went way beyond his duties to help my friend with a personal problem.
Pros - Location, cleanliness, professionalism, safety, attention to detail and staff always with a smile.
Cons - The rooms have started to show signs of wear and tear and need to be renovated. I have heard that they have started renovations but to my bad luck did not get a renovated room.
Also asked for connecting rooms when making the booking and again two weeks before my trip started but was informed at check-in that none were available during my stay. That was a bummer.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and look forward to returning back to this hotel during my next visit.
