Intrepid food critic and traveler Babe journeys outside of bustling Bangkok to give you a review of the beautiful and tranquil Rayong Marriott Resort & Spa in the seaside town of Rayong, Thailand.
Rayong Marriott Resort & Spa Website
Rayong is an eastern Thai province on the Gulf of Thailand, known for its national parks and beaches. On its south coast, the beach at Ban Phe is home to a fishing community and is the gateway to Koh Samet island, part of the Khao Laem Ya - Mu Ko Samet National Park. To the west, the long, flat Mae Ram Phueng beach offers panoramic views. Farther east, Laem Mae Phim beach has small waves and beachside restaurants. Rayong is only a easy 3 hour drive from Bangkok and is jumping off point for the popular Samet island a long standing favorite weekend getaway spot for Bangkokians.

This was Babe’s first visit to the Rayong Marriott Resort and Spa in quite a while but she says it is just as beautiful as it was the first visit. In addition to spacious rooms and sweeping grounds the Resort features HUGE main swimming pool with two waterslides, there is also a seaside island view pool right on the beach, a very large kid’s center, fitness center, and a host of restaurants to suit your every taste.
