    Accommodation - Nature View Hotel

    The 1 year old 6 storey Nature View Hotel is centrally located on Soi Buakow, a few minutes walk from shops, bars and nightlife. Website: >click here<



    We had a 950 Bt 'grand view' room on the 5th floor - modern, clean and spacious with king-size bed and balcony overlooking Areca Lodge and The Avenue shopping centre.



    NVH has a beautiful pool, free wifi internet in the lobby and although lacking a good restaurant I would recommend it as a quiet, clean and comfortable hotel. There’s a 7-11 opposite and many café’s and bars just a few doors away.

    Highly recommended!
    Cheers, Rob.

    Looks nice Rob. How does it compare to Areca Lodge (Evergreen Wing) and Pattaya Bay Resort?
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    We walked past Evergreen, it's only 150m from NVH, but never went in. At over double the price, Areca would have to be pretty darned special!

    I know! From the pics it looks nice... and Evergreen is my usual hotel in that area.... so I wondered. Might have to try NVH.

    The name makes me think its maybe a Nudist Hotel. Oddly, there is absolutely no mention of it on tripadvisor. Looks like a very nice place.

    You can run around in the nude if you want to.... lol. It's only fairly new, perhaps I may do a report on TA.

    The building structure and the environment. Four and a half building the hotel wall structure is cut by hand, and local stone marble floor is the best. Each floor has its own hall, surrounded by very spacious balcony for additional views. Each room has its own balcony.

    We stayed at the Areca Lodge on our trip to Pattaya.

    Here's a couple of shots of the rooms in the Areca. No comparison as you will see

    Pic. 3: Corona double.

    .Pic. 2: Evergreen Double , all new facilities..

    Pic. 1: Sample of hotel food, excellent (eaten by the Pool)




    We paid 300baht extra for the Evergreen wing. Pic. 1. As you can see it was worth every penny.
    I will say if the Nature View is a good few Baht cheaper it will be worth a look. We paid 1850Baht per night so definitely worth pricing both to compare


    Sorry everyone. Computers not really my thing!!! Photo's in reverse order.

    No comparison between Areca's 2 wings although Evergreen is 1000 baht dearer than Nature View. Food looks good!

    I would definitely check out the hotel you have posted about. Great price, I wonder how long the rates will stay like that.

    The pictures look great and you said the pool was nice.
    Just to confirm it's location. Is it near Areca?? We did like that location.

    Walk out the back(?) of Areca Evergreen, where the shopping centre carpark entry is, and look left up the soi... that's NV at the other end! Check current rates online.
    Cheers, Rob.
