Pattaya is increasingly being described as a potential ‘Ibiza of the East’. With a gradual rise in the number of pool parties and venues to host them, it is a name the city is increasingly earning. It certainly has all of the necessary ingredients – a fun and lively crowd, a club and party atmosphere, great weather, beautiful sunsets and, most importantly of all, swimming pools.
As the number of pool clubs and beach clubs increases, the best amongst them rise in notoriety; their names appearing in the upcoming events feeds create a buzz amongst the locals and expat residents. Here we have listed the 5 Best Pool Parties in Pattaya, some of which are the home of wet and wild parties every day of the week.
A fairly new concept of venue for Pattaya, Fflic is similar in style and nature to some of the top beach clubs of Phuket. They have a daily DJ playing funky R&B tunes and a bartender show as well as regular and popular special events with big-name international talents. Being right on the coast in Phratamnak, it offers an uninterrupted sunset view from the modest-sized infinity pool. In a bit of creative design, those happy to get wet can still chat with their hydrophobic friends at the poolside and pool-level tables. The club can take up to 300 guests and also serves an impressive menu of international cuisine. Read More...

The modest infinity pool at the top of the Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya is usually for the general use of hotel guests and is a good place for a chill-out session most evenings. When it hosts a major pool party, though, it does so with style! The bar has two floors, one with the main pool and space around it for a bar, turntables and dancing under the stars while the lower level has a breezy terrace, shallow paddling pools and a barbecue. The only thing preventing The Roof being higher up our list of the 5 Best Pool Clubs in Pattaya is the sad fact that these special events are not more common! Read More...
