As of 1 April, the amount of time spent in quarantine for those visiting or returning to Thailand was reduced from 15 days to 11 days. It is anticipated that it will be reduced further to 7 days from 1 July for anyone who has proof that they have been fully vaccinated using one of the recognised vaccines. It has been possible to complete quarantine in Pattaya for several months, making it far easier for those who live here. With an increasing number of hotels now offering ALQ options, here are just a few that you could consider.

  1. Siam Bayshore

The Siam Bayshore Hotel is located at the southern end of Walking Street overlooking Bali Hai Pier. It is a 4-star hotel, and one of the benefits of this option is that their garden wing rooms have their own terrace. With guests confined to their rooms until after the first COVID-19 test has returned negative, the balcony may be your only chance to get fresh air in the first few days.

  1. Best Bella Pattaya

The Best Bella is located next to the Dusit Thani Resort in North Pattaya and was the first hotel to offer ALQ facilities in Pattaya and has been popular with those returning to the city ever since. The hotel represents excellent value for money and is well-suited to those who are looking for a pleasant quarantine experience at a fair price.

  1. Avani Pattaya Resort

The Avani Hotel is located on Pattaya 2nd Road, close to the junction with South Pattaya Road, and is one of the more upmarket options in Pattaya. The modern and slightly more spacious rooms make for a more relaxing experience during the first few days of your stay and ease any feelings of claustrophobia.

  1. Hotel J Residence

The Hotel J Residence is ideally located in Central Pattaya and is one of the few options with a balcony in every room. Naturally, having the opportunity to sit outside and get some fresh air is a welcome change, even if the balconies are relatively small.

  1. Sunshine Garden Resort

The Sunshine Garden Resort is a surprisingly quiet location in Central Pattaya. The rooms either offer pool or garden views, and each has a small balcony. It is another option that offers excellent value for money and has received plenty of praise for how they handle the quarantine experience.

  1. The Green Park Resort

The Green Park Hotel is set in a tranquil location in North Pattaya and has lush and mature gardens. The rooms have small balconies where you can relax. It is an excellent option for those looking to unwind before life gets back to normal or their holidays begin!

  1. Ravindra Beach Resort & Spa

Perhaps the most upmarket option on our list is the Ravindra Beach Resort which offers superb accommodation and Thai hospitality. The rooms are designed in a “Thai-style” and have private balconies overlooking the gardens, pool or offering sea views.

  1. Ambassador City Jomtien Hotel

The huge Ambassador Hotel is an option for those looking to stay to the south of Pattaya after their quarantine period has finished. The rooms are relatively spacious and with good views, while some rooms also have a balcony.
