I’ve lived in Pattaya for six years now and am ashamed to say have never visited The Sugar Hut. I’ve passed by the entrance on Thappraya Road by the traffic lights turning to Pratumnak many times but never ventured in. Therefore I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet with Khun Miew and be shown around.
The first thing you notice as you travel down the tree clad road is that despite the fact you are only a few metres from the general hustle bustle and traffic of Thappraya road you feel that you are in fact miles outside Pattaya somewhere deep in the Thai countryside. There are exotic plants and trees gathered from all parts of the world, a cooling breeze and even parrots and peacocks !
A blend of East meets West the Traditional Award Winning Thai restaurant and charming villas surround a beautiful and very refreshing looking swimming pool. It really is a great place to stay and relax so it comes as no surprise when Khun Miew tells me that as well as couples and families Sugar Hut is very popular with companies. For example many Corporate Japanese bookings are made rewarding hard working sales teams with a couple of days of rest and relaxation in these wonderful surroundings.
For those lucky enough to stay in one of the traditional villas you will continue to find a pleasing mix of East meets West and the best of both Modern and Traditional facilities. For example there are modern shower fixtures in a traditional bathroom surround and a really beautiful bed set into wood to give excellent spine support and promote a really good night’s sleep as well as looking extremely attractive.
There are plans for a new area to open later this year as can be seen from the buildings being put in place further towards Thappraya road. These are still very much in keeping with the traditional Thai surrounds and even include a raised outdoor area which will be available for jazz concerts as well as including places to enjoy the food and calm surroundings
Watch this space as we keep you advised of the progress !
