Urban Explorer in Busy Bangkok to Pattaya Beach Bum in One Fun Trip
When planning your next vacation, think big, think more – you deserve it! Whether it’s your first trip to Thailand’s charming tropics or an annual tradition with your loved ones, there’s always something new to experience and countless reasons to stay a little longer.
First Stop: Bangkok
Bangkok is a renown holiday destination for travellers from all places. Whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, with friends or kids in tow, you’re guaranteed to make all sorts of fun memories here.
Why not make Amari Watergate Bangkok your home away from home as you explore Asia’s “City of Angels”?
Situated in Pratunam, one of Bangkok’s major shopping districts, you’ll be close enough to the retail and wholesale action. It’s also a cool 35 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, plus many popular attractions are conveniently within reach.
Gift yourself a leisurely vacation: Amari Watergate Bangkok offers spacious rooms with amazing city and pool views. Or, you can kick it up a notch with our modern Executive rooms and suites on higher floors with exclusive access to the Executive Lounge.
Start your mornings with a culinary journey through our international breakfast buffet at Amaya Food Gallery. There’s so much to choose from, many guests end up experiencing food comas. After recovering, we suggest a day of shopping and exploring both Bangkok’s modern culture and cultural heritage sites. Rather stay in? Then you’ll definitely enjoy the hotel’s excellent facilities including the free form pool, fitness centre, sauna and indoor hot tub.
Sunny afternoons are reserved for indulgent treatments at Breeze Spa (don’t forget to book your appointment beforehand). As the afternoon cools and you leave feeling energised, the Pool Bar will gladly serve you the tastiest happy hour cocktails and light snacks. Warmer days might warrant a visit to our lobby cafe, Cascade, for a cooling coffee or fresh-baked pastry instead.
Dining promises to be a fun-filled time with your entourage: kick off the evening with a “sharing cocktail” from Amaya Bar, or if you’re feeling fancy, select a bottle from the impressive wine cellar. Enjoy a wide variety of cuisines celebrating local and international favourites, cooked live at Amaya Food Gallery.
Located right in the heart of the city, you’ll find a wide range of places to play, dine and explore nearby:
- Platinum Fashion Mall (5-minute walk)
- CentralWorld (10-minute walk)
- Siam Paragon (15-minute walk)
- Grand Palace complex & Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) (25-minute drive), open daily 8:30AM–3:30PM
- Chinatown / Yaowarat area (20-minute drive)
- River City (20-minute drive)
- Asiatique The Riverfront (30-minute drive)

Next Stop: Pattaya
Pattaya is a comfortable 2-hour drive from Bangkok. You can rent your own ride, hire a private taxi from a local trusted tour agent or taxi service, or simply ask the hotel concierge and they will be more than happy to help you.
Originally a fishing village, Pattaya is now known as one of Thailand’s most famous tourist destinations. There’s something for every traveller here, from families to lovers or the solo explorer. We recommend at least 2 nights to appreciate this fun coastal city.
Occupying one of Pattaya’s most prestigious beachfront addresses, the glamourous Amari Ocean Pattaya is a classic among both kids and grown ups. It’s also ideal for travellers looking for a culinary experience or a great location for visiting popular nearby attractions.
For larger groups and longer stays, our newly opened Amari Residences Pattaya on Pratumnak Hill offers luxury serviced residences in a peaceful location. Or if you’d prefer a hub in the city centre, Amari Nova Suites Pattaya boasts studio rooms to three-bedroom suites. Both properties are spacious and include an equipped kitchen for your holiday convenience.
Kick the day off with a relaxing lounge by the pool, or a stroll down Pattaya Beach with a clear view over the whole bay. Reserve sunny afternoons for energising treatments at Amari Ocean Pattaya’s Breeze Spa, and don’t forget to grab an iced drink to enjoy by the pool.
If you’d rather stay in, why not chill in your modern yet comfy room? Once you’ve rested up and are ready for adventure, ask the hotel concierge to organise fun activities for you, like water sports, snorkeling excursions or island tours.
Wrap up your busy day by heading over to Mantra Restaurant & Bar for an elegant evening of international dining you’ll remember forever. Another must-visit spot for a lovely dinner is The Sky Gallery, just minutes away from Amari Residences Pattaya. Guaranteed gorgeous sunset views here!
With each hotel occupying an ideal location in Pattaya, you’re all set to begin your coastal explorations adventures:
- Koh Lan Day Trip (20-minute speedboat ride, 45-minute ferry ride from Bali Hai Pier)
- Walking Street
- Cartoon Network Amazone Water Park
- Art in Paradise
- Frost Magical Ice of Siam
