Pause in Koh Larn.....


When things get to hectic, we really should PAUSE for the moment, chill out and get our bearings and sanity back...

With that being said, I came across a very picturesque and charming little resort on the island of Koh Larn in Pattaya.... it was definitely different from all other resorts or budget stay.... Come check it out...

Created with the idea of giving travelers fun and relaxation, PAUSE Resort & Bar is like a haven from the hustle and bustle of the lively city, and some of the crowded beaches on Koh Larn.. 

From U-Tapao Airport, you can just take the airport shuttle to the Bali-Hai Pier, then take a 30 min ferry to Koh Larn island. From there, the staff from the resort will pick you up. Correspondence with Pause via their Facebook is noted to be very reliable.

Once on Koh Larn, we should just PAUSE our hectic life and simply flow with the surroundings. Koh Larn is a charming island with a small town, the pier is where most of the shops are located, there is only ONE 7-11 on the whole island, and there are no buildings taller than 2 storeys sanctioned to protect the island and its inhabitants. Be prepared for laid back village experience.

There are only very few rooms here at PAUSE, which are basically a mini enclosed concrete building with a window, its own mini-garden and bathroom.  

The concept is pretty unique, and with the exception of the bedroom and toilet, there is open ceiling that lets nature, sun and rain come through. It is very much like camping in nature but with all the comfort you need... 

Imagine taking a shower under sunlight, errmm... making love under the moonlight (ok, getting ahead of myself), enjoy breezes and even wildlife (though it can be a pain too.. because since it is open air.. you can expect unwanted guests like mosquitoes, lizards, geckos, etc...). It is however very much a sanctuary.

Hotel accommodations have been carefully appointed to the highest degree of comfort and convenience. In some of the rooms, guests can find non smoking rooms, air conditioning, desk, television, satellite/cable TV. 

No effort is spared making guests feel comfortable at PAUSE Resort & Bar. This unique mini resort hotel provides pretty awesome services and amenities. You can get free Wi-Fi in all rooms, Wi-Fi in public areas, there is a car park, BBQ facilities, and a lovely restaurant that set PAUSE apart from other hotels around. 

The common rest room outside...

The hotel offers fantastic facilities, including a lovely garden, and hey, even a hammock or two to help you unwind after a busy day checking out the city.  

PAUSE Resort & Bar is an ideal place of stay for travelers seeking charm, comfort and convenience in Pattaya.

Take the time to enjoy yourself, chill out, let the world go on for a little while while you PAUSE here and unwind from all those daily stressors of life...

So there you have it, I have shared this little gem of a mini resort on Koh Larn island.... so what are you waiting for? Do check it out... 

There is even a slide for those brave or playful enough to try it out...

Address: 180/3 Moo.7 Ko Lan, Na Klua, Bang Lamung, Chon Buri, Thailand

It is located at the three way intersection about 1.2 km from Na Ban Pier on the way to Nuan Beach

Wondering how to get there? AirAsia is the only airline that connects Pattaya, Thailand to Kuala Lumpur directly with 4 weekly flights, Pattaya to Singapore  and Singapore to Kuala Lumpur daily
