LOCATED on a headland overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, InterContinental Pattaya Resort (formerly Sheraton Pattaya Resort) is well known for its stunning views, lush tropical gardens, and luxurious accommodation options, ranging from well-appointed classic rooms to sprawling, opulent oceanfront villas.
The resort’s dining venues are equally buzzworthy – especially Infiniti, overlooking the beach, offering a wide range of contemporary Mediterranean culinary delights.
Alfresco or shaded, comfortable seating on the terrace boasts a lovely view that takes in nearby Koh Larn (Coral Island) and its surrounding waters. This light, airy and welcoming venue provides the perfect setting for a long, leisurely meal with family and friends.
Heading up the culinary team at the resort is Executive Chef Pichit Plaibua, a well-seasoned chef whose extensive experience includes stints working at top hotels in Thailand.
Other popular choices include Roasted calamari, black ink lentils and mushroom cream (B650++), which is succulent with an earthy finish; and 48 hour 1824 short ribs served with asparagus and roasted carrot purée (B890++), which melts in the mouth and is rich with flavour. To end a meal, Infiniti's signature Tiramisu (B320++) and Salted Caramel Budino (B320++) always go down a treat.
Visiting for dinner? If the night is still young when you finish your meal, head to the resort’s Latitude Lounge, where you can sink into a plush sofa and sip innovative cocktails. The Tropical Sunset (B320++), a fruity concoction built around vodka, is just one of the highlights.
