The Bear Travel  Fun Fact!

The Baan Sukhawadee in Pattaya is beautifully set across the beach and provides some soul calming views. Visitors enjoy a delicious buffet in the main hall and watch Cabaret & Thai dance on the stage. This place also offers an insight into Thai Culture and Traditions.


The Sukhawadee Mansion

Most tourist attractions in Thailand are very similar such as something to do with wildlife, activities, or cultural hotspots like temples. One of the Pattaya region's most exciting and unique attractions is the intriguing Ban Sukhawadee Mansion. This stunning mansion on the shores of the Eastern Seaboard offers something completely different from other attractions in the area. 

The Sukhawadee Mansion is located just outside Pattaya. It is owned by Panya Chotitwan, the owner of the famous Saha Farm, which is apparently one of Thailand's most prominent and biggest exporters of agricultural products. Although major international companies have swallowed up many agricultural businesses in Thailand, Mr. Panya’s business is still homegrown and Thai-owned. 

The idea for the mansion first surfaced in the year 2000 when Thailand was experiencing difficult economic times. Mr. Panya decided to build the sea-view mansion with over 100 people working together on the project to attract visitors and promote unity. The mansion covers an area of 80 rai, which breaks down as 128,000sqm, and is located at the 129-kilometer stone on Sukhumvit road. The house enjoys a 400-meter beach frontage and offers mesmerizing views for all visitors. The stunning surrounding gardens are beautiful places for contemplation and are ideal for a pleasant stroll. 


Around the Sukhawadee House

There are a few different buildings on site, such as the main Sukhawadee House and the Guan Yin Residence, which is the home of the Chotitawan Family. The main house is massive and has function rooms big enough for 500 people. You will find some stunning images and artwork in this part of the main house, alongside lots of precious gemstones. 

Another one of the most visited areas of the grounds is the beautiful Buddha Tower, which is home to several Buddhist artifacts and holy images. There is a gigantic 9.28-meter image of Buddha in the central area of the tower. The Buddhabaramee Building is another very important part of the grounds, a luxurious convention hall with lots of painted murals by a team of artists from the Thailand Department of Fine Arts. 

Here you will also find the largest carpet in the Asia Pacific continent. This building has many meeting rooms and is the office of the Saha Farm and its other businesses. This is an excellent option if you book a convention hall for a party or exhibition. 


Other Activities at Sukhawadee House

There are other things to take advantage of while you are here, such as the leading tourist shop where you can buy lots of Saha Farm products and other souvenirs that will bring back lovely memories of the mansion. The opening times at Sukhawadee House are daily from 8:30 am to 6 pm. If you are Thai, the entrance tickets cost 100 THB for adults and 50 THB for kids. If you are a Western visitor, tickets will cost 300 THB for adults and 50 THB for kids.

How to Visit Baan Sukhawadee in Pattaya?

Baan Sukhawadee is located outside the city heading northbound towards Laem Chabang. If you want to visit Baan Sukhawadee Pattaya, we recommend that you catch a taxi, as you will get one for approximately 500 THB return. The attraction is well known and popular, so any taxi driver should already know of Baan Sukhawadee and be able to transport you there with ease. 

Alternatively, if you want to drive to the venue yourself, we would suggest you enter Sukhumvit Road northbound from Pattaya Klang or Nua and drive past Bangkok Pattaya Hospital for another 2 km until you get near Chol Chan Hotel and Bang La Mung District office, and this is where Ban Sukhawadee is located. Because Sukhawadee is just a 10-minute drive from downtown Pattaya, this is the ideal place to visit for a couple of hours in the morning or afternoon when you want to find somewhere cultural and unique to visit. Hope you have a great and wonderful time while making the best of your moments in the Pattaya region.
