This should be called a service apartment. ”
Room was nice with good staff. However, I got several negative experiences. Firstly, I couldn't contact the resort before I arrived on Sat. All the phone number were wrong telephone number even though the number appear on their official website and some tel numbers were out of service. This made me afraid that the resort were permanently closed. Then, housekeeper tried many times to open my room on the morning for cleaning. This is because the front staff gave me a different room number from the list and they didn't tell each other that we were staying in the another room. Then, the housekeeper almost broke the door lock for getting in our room. However, apart from the issues, the staffs were very nice and polite. They came to us and explained the issue and took our feedback. I hope the resort would improve the management very soon.
Definitely not a resort ”
This place is definitely not a resort. Although the staff was very nice and service was good, the room was very basic and not very clean. Overall, the property needs a facelift, pool looks old and beach needs some cleaning. Whoever chooses to stay needs to make sure to bring food and kitchen stuff to eat and cook with. Bottom line- not a good value for money and definitely not what you usually get for that price in Thailand

Deserted, 2,5 hours away from BKK”
Hotel was very clean and the rooms were large. We could not see a lot of costumers and that is probably why we enjoyed our experience at the Oriental, the kids would go wild without complaints from others. The rates of the room are approximately the same than others hotels around but it is definitely a good deal when you are several families sharing the same condo or villa. Only downside is that the hotel is a little but isolated, you definitely want to be motorized!
Comfy room, good location and clean property”
Room was very comfortable and we got a great rate on agoda. Right next to beach and good pool. Very quiet atmosphere and perfect for relax. They have less staff as its mostly residential property but that's really. internet connection was also good and breakfast reasonable.
RELAX IN A PEACEFUL PLACE”
It's a good experience to be there! It's far away from town, @40 mins drive to town, @10 mins walk to nearby hotel with foods & massage. There's no 24 hrs services, from morning to 10pm only, have to find the security guard if necessary, we haven't been to a hotel like this. It seems silent & dark in the hotel area at night, no more night life but it's not quiet as it's located on the roadside, traffic was noicy at all. Staffs there don't know English much but they are nice & helpful, all they were trying there best to serve our needs. Breakfast can just feed our stomach, fruits are always with flys. Few set meals for lunch & dinner were the same with no hope. Hire a motorbike with net @5 mins back to the way to town, there were many local seafoods kitchens on the beach which were cheap & tasty. Swimming pool facing the sea was amazing, walking on the beach or hire a boat for fishing were enjoyable too. Overall the hotel is comfortable & valuable to stay!
This is another great hotel I used to stay”
Perfect. This is one of hotel I love most. Place is perfect. Room is so big and full of cooking equipment for party arrangement. Pool is so big and they have two pools which you can enjoy both. Pool for villa is connected to private beach. I want to spend more days here. Staffs here have great service mind. I lost my sun glasses and they help me hard to find it and finally I found it. I promise I will be back here again for sure.
Beautiful room and a quiet location.”
I really liked the room we stayed in, the room is quiet narrow but very modern and clean. We did not eat here so cannot grade the food. We arrived late at night so was checked in via security so did not really deal with the staff as well but security were very helpful. This part of Rayong is very quiet and a long way from the bars and restaraunts but we had a car so was not a problem for us. I would stay here again.
Not good value...”
Very disappointed for what I paid for...staff are not professional.not happy face.not helpful...wait long times for check in...room are very dirty ..every thing in that hotel very old and un maintain..not happy
Not a Resort”
If you want something out of the way and private then this is the place for you. It's not what I would call a "resort," however. It is a private condominium complex. The beach is small and clean with almost no people. The pool is a nice lap pool, no shallow end. The restaurant is small but good (no view), closes at 7 PM. The staff were very friendly and nice. It's best if you have a car. There is nothing close by and the condo complex itself has no facilities other than the beach, pool, and restaurant. We solved this problem by hiring a car and driver, $50 for 5 hours, which worked out fine. There's not much to do in Rayong but we found the Tamnanpar jungle restaurant and the Strawberry Town mountain fantasyland and enjoyed both places. We were disappointed in the lack of typical resort amenities at the condo, but the private beach was our priority so in the end we were satisfied with our stay.
I like Rayong”
Love the pools in the hotel. It is in between Rumpung beach and Pae beach. There is plenty of sea food to eat. There is not much to do, but to sit and swim and read is a perfect vacation for me.
If you want a great apartment with a functional kitchen and an amazing view the Oriental is great value so long as you want to lounge around the pool. If you want to swim in the sea, forget it. Speed boats towing large, inflatable banana boats carrying 4-5 people roar up and down all day, PARALLEL TO THE BEACH AND LESS THAN 25M FROM THE WATER'S EDGE. As the driver of the speed boat is watching for people who fall off the banana they are likely to not see you in the water and likely to go right over you. It's crazy dangerous. The sea water is heavily polluted with oil (like most of the Gulf of Thailand) so you're not missing much. The fitness centre has a quite good elliptical cross-trainer, an adjustable bench (without rack) and pairs of hand weights from 10 to 30lb and a savage air conditioner - so you've no excuse to be totally lazy.
Rather disappointing, but nice views!”
Stayed here for the New Year holiday as part of a longer (5 week) visit to Thailand and this was without doubt the worst hotel of the eight we stayed in. On the positive side the rooms were superb and spotlessly clean, and we had a stunning view over the gulf of Thailand from the room. On the down side, breakfasts were a bit of a shambles and frankly not worth the money. We ended up not bothering and going down the road every morning to a little roadside restaurant. Although the location is right on the beach, there is a busy main road in back which can get a bit noisy. I can't comment on the chalets in the resort, which did look very well appointed, but I wouldn't go back to the hotel again.
Private resort not worth for what you paid. ”
My family 3 of us, we choose 2 bed room for comfortable. The resort just basics service, the front gril help me carry luggage. At night we are walk to the pool, no lighting on, no one there (it's open beach) quite concern for guest who stay at beach front. I stay at level 4 , whole level was dark no one switch on the light. Breakfast is terrible cheap juice , 1 thin slice bread for each guest. Fried eggs was use dirty oil , you can see the dark oil on the dish. They gave very little of Bf , 2 egg , 2 pcs bacon, 1 pc of ham (cut half) For me I can pay half price at other hotel to get this or full price those Novotel This property is not hotel its estate that owner each house let management office do daily rentel. I wouldn't return again.
Valueble of beach near BKK”
This hotel is like the service apartment or condominium. Wide room space with kitchen and living room for 1 BR deluxe room. The building is far from the beach , approx. 200 m , replaced by very nice sea view. BF is also nice , only comment about coffee , no fresh coffee served, And far away from any restaurants.
Not a as expected ”
Building just on the main road. No nice view. They advertise with 3 different names for the same condominium. It's not a real hotel. It's a condo. They understand no English. No towels for the pool are provided.
Nice Hotel ”
The Oriental Beach Resort has many types of rooms. We stayed in 3 bedrooms with 2 baths. Big kitchen and living room. The hotel was Condominium style. Small pool but very close to the beach. Breakfast was ok.
Nice Room/Nice Pool/Nice Sunset”
We are very enjoy to stay at Oriental Beach. The room is big and they has the kitchen to cook. We love the pool at beach fornt. The beach is lovely. The food is not much to eat. The staffs are nice but need to speak more English to forighner as out family has 3 forighners. Everything is ok.
Quiet and great holiday”
we booked the villa type B which has 3 bedrooms, living room and kitchen. The villa is not far from the beach, mostly we had nothing to much in this resort. the beach is not that clean, so it was just ok for walking. However, we love its pool cos it has good view for watching the beach. The breakfast has limited choice, but the boilded rice with squid is really delicious. its location is little bit far from the city, we must drive 15 - 20 minutes to the restaurant area and also pier to Koh-Samed. Anyway, the staff are very friendly, the room is very clean and comfortable. Good for relax, not noisy.
we love this place”
Smooth, easy best for those who lowe swimming and peacefull life. Around good restaurants if you like to have breakfast or dinner. You need to walk 250 meters to the left or 500 - 1000 meter tothe right.Enjoy this place !!!!
a good thing a bad thing at the same time”
there were not much good thing to memorize. Even though the room is large and new but ants were everywhere. in the night time the area was covered with stink wind. the swimming pool was far to cold to swim. the beach swimming pool is ok. the beach was dirty. there were stray dogs wandering around the area and especially inside of the hotel.
New hotel, great view and room, - but too quiet”
reception staff very hospitable. everything of the hotel was satisfactory, especially the room view. However, the main drawback is when we went there were no other guests staying, so the atmosphere was too quiet, furthermore, there were no staff at the hotel at night, so sense of security is lower. I would come back to stay here only when more guests are present or if coming as a big group.

Room is old, and the beach is littered.
Good location but old”
The location is fine. But facility was not well maintenance.
Good environment, but it's to far away from Ban phe. If you just want to relax and stay in room, it's good place to coside!
Quite beach front condo. Good for family.
Good privet villa and excellent ambient, privet swimming pool, not peaceful.”
Difficult access in villa area by wheelchair but for other traveler is ok.
dont hestiate amazing facitiy”
Booked by chance on arrival could not believe the quality of the condo amazing views located within a private resort great value
Good atmosphere. Very calm and quiet. The room was very tidy and nice condition. Beautiful and large swimming pool. The sea view was very beautiful.
Clean and good”
The room is big and clean, staff were helpful and location is quite good but a little bit far from building to beach but if you are in pool villa is much more near
Large swimming pool with big space”
there are 2 swimming pools here and I love that the room is very big for family trip here.

Nice place for your vacation”
Great for a family with kids”
Very comfortable, with friendly staff
Nice place. Beautiful beach and swimming pool. ”
I'm happy with room and private. Nice to choose this place..
luxury hotel on the beach”
A very good hotel near the beach. Quiet beach as well as the hotel compound. If you look for evening activities near this hotel, you will be disappointed.
An excellent location to spend time relaxing and chilling out
very nice accommodation”
I went there with my family with my family and we such had a good time together
nice beach quite place ”
Nice and comfortable villa for family stay”
Very impressive stay, all other folks really love this place - will definitely come back.
Great accomodation, great view”
Good Service And Good Village”
พนักงานบริการดีมาก ที่พักสะอาด โล่ง กว้างขวางเหมาะกับไปเป็นครอบครัว จะหาเวลาไปอีกแน่นอนค๊า!
It’s a condo not hotel ...so amenities are at a low. The restaurant closed at 7 none of the staff knew how to make any of the drinks they had listed. WiFi was very difficult to get we spent a lot of time getting help with WiFi connection. But staff was great they got us food and medication when I got sick. The staff was very accommodating. But I won’t go back
In need of better maintenace”
We stayed in a pool villa which was very basic for the price. The villa and much of the rest of the resort is in dire need of some good maintenance. The villa had no shower screen or curtain in one of the bathrooms and mould around the bath. The aircon filters looked like they had never been cleaned. In its current state of maintenance it’s just not worth the money.
Great value for money ”
We wanted a quiet, relaxing holiday and it’s what we got. The rooms in the condominium are huge - three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lounge and kitchen area! So much better than a hotel room! The pools are lovely and there is direct access to a clean an empty beach! Old in areas and needing some tlc and renovation but this did not spoil our time there. The staff are mixed - very friendly on reception not so in the bistro. Breakfast was a lot better than we expected after reading reviews before leaving. It’s not a hotel as such as the villas and apartments are for sale, but honestly it was great value for what we got. The area is not at all touristic so no markets or shops, but this means it remains local and inspoilt. We had a fantastic time!
Resort needing convenient maintenance”
The Resort is pleasant, with a nice Architecture, and conveniently placed near the beach. However, the maintenance and cleanliness, along with support given to foreigners, needing to be improved. The decks around the beach and pool are in poor conditions and the maintenance being done is awful, which is extensible to many facilities. Even after accidents - as happened to my mother when stepping over a broken board - nothing is done. The cleanliness is poor, namely on the apartments. The assistance we can get from staff is bad - they do not know English and are not really trained to help. For instance, I couldn't get one simple plug adaptor, for an extra blanket they wanted to charge.. Around the Hotel, not many facilities. We need to walk on the main road for 5 min to get to a restaurant. The Resort has two restaurants: one closes at 5pm; other, smaller, near the beach, closes at 7pm. This last one is requiring convenient maintenance and renovation, but staff is nice and food is good.
Recommened for spend time with friends”
The hotel location is quite on private beach and not too far from morning fresh market .Room clean I stay deluxe sea view family,3 bedroom our room have big refirgeration,microwave,modern kitchen and big terrest it good for spend time with friends. We had cooked together it was fun. For breakfast is OK. have not so much choice.
Pak Ping Ing Tang Boutique Hotel 39-40 19 Ngam Wong Wan Road Tambon Bang Khen, Bangkok 11000, Thaila”
Room was not ready. Area was dirty. WiFi did not work. Little food was available at the breakfast. Drain in the shower would not drain due to being clogged with hair. Front desk staff accused me of stealing a hanger on departure. I did not and challenged them but they quickly said not to worry about it. I won't stay there again
Unauthentic, falang residences, unqualified service desk”
It's not a resort to me but a Falang village that has some rooms for rent while they're away. It results a place without souls, no good energy, a disappointed service and a poor breakfast buffet. Pools and private beach were clean, though. That's the only positive thing I've taken away. Being used to Thailand and Thai people, I'd not recommend this place at all.
The large room with seaview”
The resort is getting old but the room is still in good condition. Staffs are nice and friendly. Breakfast is not spacial. Internet is very good but television has only a few chanel. Resort is far away from town...without a car it will be difficult to take to town.
The room was great, the pool on the beach was great, and having a beach was great. After that it was just ok. The food was poor at best; expensive for just an adequate taste (lived in Thailand for over 4 years now and know how many dishes should taste). The location was just ok. If you did not have a mode of transportation, you could be easily bored to death (fortunately we have a car). The facilities are minimal outside of the two pools and one poor restaurant. I would give our experience a 7 because the room was wonderful for the price, and because we had a vehicle. If I did not have a mode of transportation, it would be in the 5-6 range for lack of food quality and other facilities.
Poor quality buildings and finish.”
Not a very good hotel, furnishing and general fitout poor quality. Door locks, lights not working . One pillow case had two stains on it, furnishings curtains and lounges in white will soon look very dirty, walls marked already, a low quality building. Food was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We stayed at 3 rooms apartment. Spacious but quite standard. We had a problem with leaking air conditioner right above our bed and the front desk stafft suggested that we had air-con too cold (23 degrees) and should increase the temperature!!!! Don't think they are trained to do the job in service business and they hardly speak any English. Breakfast was far from good and staffs were not keen to fill up the "nearly empty" plats. No pool towel and the facilities around the pool are in bad conditions. The Manager (not much English spoken) was anyway trying to help with smiling face and good attitude so that's a plus!
Too far from everything”
Had to drive about 10 kilometers for a decent restaurant. Very limited breakfast, No refill!! It supposed to be a hotel but just a room with basic services. No bath tub! No service at the pool, had to walk half a mile just to get a bottle of water
A quiet getaway”
This is a good place to get away from the city. It's very quiet so don't expect any nightlife. The property is on a long, nice, quiet beach. You pretty much need your own transportation if you want to go to store or other restaurants. Staff was courteous and friendly.
Not a "hotel", but a great place to relax.”
This slightly isolated "serviced condo" can be a very nice quiet place to stay, once you greatly lower your expectations of the "front desk", and simply do not ask them anything. The ghost-town-like restaurant is simply closed on some days, and they canceled the advertised Saturday night beach BBQ. Not to worry, the JEED cafe nearby serves up fantastic food, and is only about 2 minute walk to the right when you exit the property. Or, you can rent a scooter for 300 Baht / day (ask the groundskeeper, not the front desk!) and go to more restaurants 3 km farther down the same direction. Alternately, Ban Phe is about 10 km north, with numerous eating options along the way. The condo units have kitchens, so it is a smart option to bring your own supplies, relax in your own condo unit, and cook yourselves. The swimming pool near the beach is very nice, and the front gate security staff are excellent. Just don't think "4 star hotel" service, and you will enjoy your stay!
Comfortable but far from the city”
We were six of us. It is far away from the city center. There is no taxi. Pick up vans are treated as taxies highly priced. They demand exorbitant price. Since there is no restaurant around we went to the city center to buy the supplies. It was quite a hassle. After loading the fridge with food we were comfortable. We cooked our meal and enjoyed rest of the day leisurely.
I stayed this reosrt 2-3 times , it is Ok ”
I just reserved and stay at The Oriental Beach Resort 3 rooms 1 night on 7-8 /11/2014 , floor there is alot of water leakage from upper floor of my room , water on the floor in bathroom and bedroom on night time , water leak from above bathroom ceiling and downlight short circuit. A lot of water leak from shaft door in fron to corridor In the morning at 8.00 AM we check out and inform the lady at the reception officec. Could we cliam back payment , she called me inthe afternoon that she will contact head office in bangkok and will inform me later.
Private and relaxation”
We stay in villa ,the facilities in villa are new modern but some bedroom have bathroom smell and some restroom have problem of water leakage on the floor .when we report resort officer at that time ,the maintainance came to fix at proper time. The environment around resort is nice place but the pool near villa should be more clean and maintaining as same as the pool of condo. Overall this villa is comfortable and quiet place for relax
one time is enough, no more”
breakfast is so limited food so we can't have enough breakfast. and when we have breakfast we want one glass of drinking water, have to pay 20 baht so how you impression to pay .Staff in restaurant, she is not service mind, always having bad mood on her face so please be smile to the guests for 4 stars hotel like this.
It's very quite location, breakfast bad.”
It's not valueable for the money I had paid for this room type. I'll not go back to stay at this resort because It's condominium and the owner er not ready to rent out, missing sofa on The terrace etc.
Lovely swimming beach.”
The location is very nice, right off a nice swimming beach. The pool is lovely for sitting and swimming. The 'village' house we stayed in was large and well designed, a little ways in from the beach and several houses away from the pool. There is no good dining on the grounds, but a short drive down the road there are good local restaurants and good international dinning at the several 5-star hotels nearby. The hotel service is very minimal, with the place managed as a condominium, expecting visitors to fend for themselves. No cleaning, no pool towels, no additional soaps or shampoo, no room service, some general disrepair in the grounds and failing AC, not much of a breakfast at all (half a pancake with an egg), lousy internet connection. Be self-sufficient, though, and it'll be great!
Big rooms and brand new”
The resort is closed by the beach, new and nice but was marred by bad service from the people who run it. We were greeted by the manager, who arrived slightly later, not by "sawadee krup" or "good afternoon" but "hey you can't smoke here" although the lobby is open air and no sign of "no smoking sign" We arrived at 4 pm to be told one of the two units is not ready for check in yet but would only be available in one hour. Inspite of this, we were told we have to check out by 12 pm the next day. Although breakfast is included with the rooms,the restaurant still charge for coffee and orange juice. Breakfast only include a bowl of porridge and a glass of water!
Will be nice...when it is finished! ”
I would recommend this place in about 6 months. It really is not finished yet! Construction on the condos and some of the houses in the village is ongoing and not so relaxing. The owner was incredibly generous and changed us to another house at the next-door property (which he also owns) so we ended up very happy. Once it is done, it will be nice....lovely views of the beach with spacious and modern condos.
Nice room with a good view”
Nice place, very quiet, close too the ocean. But far away from city.
The hotel is beautiful but it is not functional.
Would never recommend this place. It is an service condominium, not an hotel or resort.
