The Five Star Vagabond

Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

February 19, 2017 by David Herd

Sunday lunch at The Edge

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

 Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant is a wonderful dining experience particularly on Sunday. It is in direct competition with the fabulous Mantra at the Amari hotel. Further on in this review I will endeavour to make comparisons between the two.

Fresh seafood

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Fresh seafood is of course the star of the show, however there are many more special offerings guaranteed to delight you.

An impressive choice of Oysters

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

There are 4 or 5 variety to choose, mainly from France.

 My first course

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

 Oysters, crab, prawns, caviar & fresh white bread, I always find it difficult to get past the seafood counter. 🙂

Did I mention caviar?

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Certainly one of my favourite delicacies, salmon Roe.

 Lots of sushi & sashimi

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

As I said before, it’s hard to get past the fresh seafood. 🙂

Sushi

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Too much sushi is never enough. 🙂

I travel to Japan every year and the Hilton sushi is certainly high quality.

Outside seating

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Catering for smokers & those who want to get closer to the view.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

A beautifully designed kitchen & restaurant.

Check out my review of the Hilton Sky Bar. 

BBQ duck & ribs.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Funnily enough the six baskets contain 6 different variety of Chinese buns, a little bit of overkill I feel. I would much prefer to see some Shumei & prawn dumplings similar to what’s on the menu at the Mantra.

BBQ seafood station

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

You really need a big appetite to cope with this fabulous buffet.

 Hardworking chefs

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

This is one of my favourite photos from Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant.

 Pizza

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

No matter what you fancy it is all here. 🙂

The Bakery

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

The bread here is excellent.

An excellent cheese selection

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant I was at Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant on Sunday February 19, & sadly I overindulged & could not fit in any cheese. 🙂

An amazing choice of deserts to finish.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Put this great buffet on your list, & many thanks for visiting my Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant photo blog.

I have given a lot of thought to which is the best buffet, the Hilton (with the salmon caviar) or the Mantra (with the Alaskan crab), & the verdict is Mantra by a short 1/2 crab claw. 🙂 

However I have noticed they now serve the clawless variety of Alaskan crab, please Mantra bring back the claws. 🙂

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

January 14, 2017 by David Herd

Pattaya sunset 

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

 Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar is the perfect place to watch the sunset. Happy hour is from 5 to 7 pm offering a range of cocktails for only B330 for two or around $9 usd.

Big crowd

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

Three reasons I guess, it’s happy hour, it’h high season in January & i’ts an amazing view of Pattaya.

Hole in the roof to watch the stars.

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

Once again I’m guessing that’s why they put the hole in the roof. 🙂

From a different aspect

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

All through the Hilton the design & architecture is fabulous.

Electric blue mini bar

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

What a magnificent colour.

 Looking north

Beautiful sunset

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar

We are so lucky living in Pattaya, we really get the best sunsets, storms as well as magnificent clouds that float across Pattaya Bay.

Looking west

A few minutes after sunset the view is breathtaking looking towards Koh Larn island.

Full house

It’s certainly a good idea to book a table in the high season.

 Aussies in paradise

Hooters Pattaya opening night

January 4, 2016 by David Herd

Very sexy Thai & Russian babes

Hooters Pattaya opening night

Hooters Pattaya opening night 

Hooters Pattaya opening night was on New Years Eve 2015 so we decided to make it our first stop when seeing off the old and welcoming the new year.   

Check out those gorgeous eyes

Hooters Pattaya opening night

 It’s probably lucky we don’t know what she is thinking. 🙂

From another perspective

Hooters Pattaya opening night

Here is a test can you see the very large bottle of Absolut Vodka? Vodka, what Vodka? I don’t see any vodka.

Great room with an upstairs sports bar

Hooters Pattaya opening night

 The are lots of seating alternatives here including outside overlooking Pattaya Bay.

Ride the wild bull at Hooters Pattaya opening night

Hooters Pattaya opening night

 

Call me old fashioned but I prefer to sit quietly at the bar with a cold Asahi draught and take in the eye candy.

Girls were busy at Hooters Pattaya opening night

Hooters Pattaya opening night

The girls all looked great in there Hooters outfits, there seemed to be an even mix of Russian & Thai girls.

If I had to pick a favourite

Hooters Pattaya opening night

 

It would probably be this beautiful lady.

Booze delivery

Hooters Pattaya opening night

I don’t think we will run out of booze ant time soon at Hooters Pattaya opening night.

Forget the booze, show us the girls.

Hooters Pattaya opening night

Ok, I know where your preference Lies.

 And the beat goes on

Hooters Pattaya opening night

Pour me a drink & I’ll tell you some lies. 🙂

Main bar downstairs

Hooters Pattaya opening night

The décor is excellent, my only complaint is the food is rather expensive. I’m guessing management will soon discover this and make adjustments.

Hooters Pattaya opening night band

Hooters Pattaya opening night

The band and the selection of live & recorded music was excellent.

Did I mention the girls?

Hooters Pattaya opening night

 

Well my friends as you can clearly see the girls were excellent as well at Hooters Pattaya opening night. 🙂

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

November 11, 2015 by David Herd

Looking north to Wongamat

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

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

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

 

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.

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

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

Lap pool, I don’t think so.

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

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

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

One moment sir while I check for vacancies

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

Friends of mine who are regular Amari customers always comment on the excellent staff, they certainly give their guests the five star treatment.

For a great rate use this link to book the Ocean Tower.

Four of my favourite people

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

Markland Hotel Pattaya Beach Road is in the very best location in Pattaya, I should know because I live there. The 27 floor building has 4 floors of hotel, all the other floors are condominiums.

Opposite the beach

Located on Beach Rd just 10 Baht on the bus to get to Walking St. 🙂


Two bedroom apartment

Dusit Thani Hotel North Pattaya

The hotel entrance is beside the Dolphin roundabout at the start of Naklua Rd where there are many good restaurants.

The 2nd pool

Dusit Thani Hotel North Pattaya

 

The pool area and others sections have just been upgraded. I often use this as a short cut when I walk to Wongamat as the pathway around the waterfront has collapsed.

Beach Rd view from the Dusit.

Dusit Thani Hotel North Pattaya

 

The building next to the Holiday Inn is Markland condos, I have lived on the 17th floor on the south side since 2011. In my opinion I have the best view in Pattaya.

Yum Cha at the Peak Restaurant

Dusit Thani Hotel North Pattaya

I am a regular customer here for their fantastic Yum Cha, the restaurant is quite hard to find, take the elevator near the pool to the 9th floor. The food is fantastic and the service is excellent.

More of my favourite dishes

Dusit Thani Hotel North Pattaya

For a five star hotel the dim sum lunch is reasonably priced, about B550 for 5 baskets, plus the quality is exceptional.

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

July 21, 2015 by David Herd

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

 Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel is in a great location in beside Big C shopping mall in north Pattaya away from the madness of Walking St. Yet it is only a 10 Baht 10 minute bus ride along the beach to get among the action.

My favourite room 311

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

I stayed at the Sabai Resort many times from 2004 until I moved from Australia to Thailand in 2011. I still often book friends in when they visit Pattaya. There are 3 pools and many different room styles, the average price is around $60 usd per night, you will get the best rate possible through this link. If you would like to compare other alternatives check out my budget hotel post here.

Don’t walk away Renae. 🙂

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

There are thousands of hotels in Pattaya to choose from, if 4 or 5 star is more to your liking check out my suggestions here.

Atlantic Bar

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

Just across the road are some good beer bars, in particular the Atlantic bar is very popular indeed, in July 2015 they increased to the size by 50%, check it out here.

Cherry Bar

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

Almost beside the Atlantic is the Cherry Bar another one of my favourite haunts since 2003.

Otherwise go next door to Big C where there is a great choice of restaurants and Cafes. Please note Big C is closed for renovations until Xmas 2016, however the supermarket is still open.
