Five-Star Luxury, Five-Star Location

Built to the Thailand Hotel Standard’s Foundation’s strict requirements for five-star designation, Cape Dara redefines the contemporary Thai resort hotel. Yet at the same time, the resort’s owners, are a Thai family with local roots tracing back well before Pattaya became a major vacation spot. Thus the resort embodies true Thai hospitality combined with a keen awareness of what today’s traveller desires.

General Manager, added, “Once a privileged vacation and week-end destination for well to do Thai families, Cape Dara resort has most likely the best location to showcase Pattaya’s grandest views, whether to the South and South East,  to beach road, the main bay and Jomtien beach, or North towards Ko Sichang and Laem Chabang.  Lined up in front of the resort are all the islands that form the backdrop to Thailand’s most celebrated sunsets. Perched on the rocks of Cape Dara our resort makes the most of the rich, green surroundings and quiet neighbourhood, while being literally only one minute away from lively beach road. This heartfelt welcome and genuine hospitality of early days Pattaya has transcended to the ideals of service and friendly attention we want you to feel while staying with us.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Dara Resort and wish you a wonderful and happy future stay, whatever the purpose of your visit.”
