Jomtien before Pattaya

Hi folks, my wife and I (late 40's) visited Pattaya 3 yrs ago and stayed at the Hilton for 15 nights (fab)!!. We think its time to go back to Pattaya. But..............my wife doesn't fancy Pattaya for a full 2 weeks, (yes, i understand its maybe a bit too full on!, but she really does love it!!!!). We think we maybe want to do 4 nights elsewhere and 10 nights Pattaya. We were thinking of a relaxing 4 nights at the Jomtien area, would this be okay? Is there enough over here for 4 nights, ie, restaurants, bars, nightlife, etc, to suit our need before we hit party central. Oh, and recommend a hotel. Yes, we did love the Hilton Pattaya. Or is there some place else we can go on route from Bangkok airport, before Pattaya???

Jomtien should be fine. And, if you do feel like you need more excitement there are plenty of baht buses to take you over to Walking Street or 2nd street. You're just a short hop away.

Look over the website for the Rabbit Resort.

http://www.rabbitresort.com/

Royal Cliff Hotel/Resorts are popular and also in Jomtien. (Slightly remote area good for relaxing.)

Try Rompo Bar Complex in Jomtien there are lots of good bars there and the drinks prices are much cheaper than Pattaya . Also there is a very good bar with Live Music on Thappraya Road, Jomtien called The 3 Roses .

Ok thanks folks, and we are considering Jomtien for a few nights. But we are also wondering, are there any resorts on route from Bangkok that we could maybe spend a couple of nights, maybe a resort by the water / fishing village/ traditional Thai place??? Can anyone recommend a stop off on route to Pattaya from Bangkok, as i mentioned originally, my wife not keen on spending 14 nights Pattaya. Any help appreciated.

Jomtien is much more quiet, cosmopolitan, slower, and nicer than Pattaya, but still close- I recommend the Agate at Jometin Complex

Royal Cliff pool is amazing. Best pool of the hotels in this group.
