The seasonal a la carte menu of international food is certainly one of the attractions of the rooftop restaurant at the Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya, but it is far from the main one. The 360-degree views of Pattaya and Naklua are exceptional, as is the rooftop infinity pool, but the really unique features of The Roof Sky Bar include the paddling pools to cool your feet in while enjoying the down-tempo beats, the grass-like floor of the dining areas and the evening movie screenings under an open sky.

Despite being one of the lower rooftops on Phratamnak Hill – a mere nine storeys up – the view out across the Gulf of Thailand to Koh Larn is uninterrupted and magnificent. There are taller buildings around the Centara Grand Phratamnak, but none can boast a first-class poolside Italian restaurant and lounge bar like Ruffino. It has a chic design (including large jellyfish-filled fish tanks), a laid-back and friendly atmosphere and regular special events including barbecue buffets and evenings devoted to some of the excellent vintages from the walk-in wine cellar.
