Our favourite of the pricier resorts that keep things quiet and clean towards the west end of Pattaya Beach, Mali’s Bali-style villas and simpler concrete bungalows are set around a lawn filled with palms and orchids.

Photo of Mali Resort
If your budget allows, go for one of the dark-wood villas with glossy wood floors, wall-size sliding glass doors, tasteful Buddhist-inspired art, vintage furnishings, vaulted thatch ceilings, decks and huge garden bathrooms with twin basin sinks and rain showers so that you never have to leave your sweetie’s side. In our opinion these are the classiest digs on Pattaya Beach.

Though lacking the elegance of the larger and newer villas, the cheaper concrete “garden” rooms are equipped with the same luxurious beds along with hardwood floors, LCD TVs, DVD players, safes, ceiling fans and air-con. These are stacked in two rows facing one another in a corner of the property, so no direct sea views unless you pay extra for a beachfront edition.

While there’s no swimming pool, Mali boasts dozens of wooden loungers along an excellent beachfront along with bamboo hammocks spread along the spacious lawn, a massage section and a restaurant/bar that’s happy to deliver straight to your villa. The same group also runs Mali Sunrise, a similar property on southern Sunrise Beach.

If you’re after something trendier and perhaps more luxurious, Akira Resort is just up the beach, though we’re not too fond of its concrete beachfront barriers. Otherwise, the much larger and blander Z-Touch, Bundhaya and Sita resorts all have stacks of rooms and swimming pools.
