Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya Ocean Tower has fabulous ocean views and beautiful grounds around the pool area. Add the wonderful Mantra to the mix and you will wonder why you would ever stay anywhere else.

It is May 2017 & a huge renovation is underway, the Garden section is being totally demolished & a new tower will be constructed in its place. Tavern by the sea on Beach Rd has been demolished.

Naklua Road

Naklua Road has lots of good restaurants and beer bars. Travel about 5 kilometres along and you come to the fish market, well worth a visit.

It is May 2017 & a huge renovation is underway, the Garden section (the grey buildings) is being totally demolished & a new tower will be constructed in its place. Tavern by the sea on Beach Rd will also be demolished.

Relax at the pool bar.

A beautiful setting swim up to the bar and order a cocktail.

Lap pool, I don’t think so.

I would struggle to swim one lap, I’ll stick to the other pool where I can order a Bloody Mary. 🙂

My brother Warren and his two beautiful daughters Elyssa & Laura plus my friend Bill Austin from Wiltshire in the U.K, we had just finished Sunday lunch at the Mantra and were feeling no pain at all. 🙂

Talking about the Mantra

Alaskan crab, Oysters from France washed down with cold sake. Sunday lunch lets you sample food from seven different kitchens.

Here is a video showing the seven kitchens

Room prices are quite a bit lower in the Garden section but you still have full access to the beautiful grounds. They also have an excellent property at Koh Chang which is around 4 hours drive from Pattaya.

It is May 2017 & a huge renovation is underway, the Garden section is being totally demolished & a new tower will be constructed in its place. Tavern by the sea on Beach Rd will also be demolished.

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ???? Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
