Diamond Cliff Resort & Spa
The first thing to strike you as you approach this pretty hotel on the gentle rolling hills of Patong is its traditional Thai design. From the gold-laden archways to the chic dark wood interiors with elegant touches of intricate detail, you’ll be immersed in an authentic and captivating setting. Its superb location near the centre of Patong makes it a hit with those that like to enjoy the vibrant local culture and nightlife, with somewhere peaceful and quiet to retreat to. Spend long, lazy days luxuriating by the pool or on the sands of Patong Beach before sipping a pre-dinner cocktail and heading downtown to experience the region’s unique nightlife.
There are two pools to choose from with plenty of space at each so you’ll never feel crowded. If you’re travelling with kids, the Grand Wing pool is the place to be. Not only is there a slide, splash zone and floating pool, but you’re not far from some great dining options when they’ve worked up an appetite. There’s even a swim-up bar to ensure that you’re always within easy reach of a refreshing cocktail as they play. If you’re looking for a more secluded spot, head to the Ocean View pool on the resort’s upper level. Set next to the all-day dining restaurant, the Ocean View Coffee Shop, it has a convenient location and superb ocean views, as well as a relaxing whirlpool.
From Italian cuisine at Franco Roma, to divine Japanese fare at Kiko and sublime Korean barbecue at Korean Hut, there’s a great choice of dining options. Reminiscent of a time gone by and evoking a sense of a traditional royal Thai dining experience, Thai Orchid immerses you in the authentic flavours of the region. Perched high on the hill, Ocean View Coffee Shop is the ideal place to enjoy breakfast and superb international cuisine. For something a little different, head to Diamond Hut and sit on the rocky shoreline as you listen to the soft roar of the ocean and indulge in fresh local seafood. In keeping with the style of the resort, the room choices are simple yet elegant with superb sea views from each. Choose from either a Super Deluxe Room with private balcony, or a more spacious and luxurious Diamond Suite.
