Pattaya’s main gay scene is centered around Jomtien Complex and Jomtien Beach. While in South Pattaya, it’s worth visiting the hilltop temple (a 5-minute drive from Jomtien Beach), from which you can see panoramic views of Pattaya and its crescent bay.

Why this hotel: Fully-equipped rooms. Near the gay scene & beach.
We think that the Royal Beach View Suites will become a popular choice with those who want to stay in a relatively peaceful and chilled-out area, but still be with walking distance of the gay beach.
The Royal Beach offers 30 modern, stylish and very spacious one, two and three bedroom suites, that in reality are more like serviced apartments. Each suite has its own kitchen (with a microwave and fridge), lounge area and balcony. Other facilities include a flat screen TV’s, DVD player and free WiFi. Many suites have excellent sea views. The resort has its own relatively small swimming pool, jacuzzi and fitness area.
The beach is just a few steps from the hotel and the gay area is just about a 15-minute walk. There is a very handy 7Eleven just next door to the Royal Beach and the resort has its own car park. The nightlife in Boyztown can be reached by taxi in less than 10 minutes.

Excellent new hotel that has just about everything you want: clean rooms, modern amenities, a nice pool, a gym and free WiFi. April Suites is conveniently located in Central Pattaya, close to all the restaurants & bars and the gay nightlife in Boytztown, yet it is tucked away from the main road, on a quiet alley. Pattaya Beach and city center are only a 5-minute walk away. The popular transvestite cabaret show, Alcazar, is just steps away from the hotel. Great value and service too. Highly recommended.
