Ocean Marina Jomtien is among a handful of international standard marinas in Thailand and the only one located on the Gulf of Thailand’s east coast, offering a vibrant, inclusive environment where visitors can enjoy a wide range of nautical lifestyle opportunities and leisure activities. Within the complex, there is also a 51-room boutique hotel, restaurant, meetings and seminar facilities and a sports complex. The all-inclusive marina is a second home for the region’s yachting community and a go-to-spot for visiting yachties and affluent visitors.

“The Gulf of Thailand is an all-year-round destination that has steadily become a must visit for superyachts visiting Asia”, reports Captain Charlie Dwyer, co-founder of Asia Pacific Superyachts. “After departing the warm hospitality and 5-star dining and pampering of Koh Samui, it’s on to Pattaya and the Ocean Marina Jomtien. The marina offers close proximity to Bangkok International Airport, reliable suppliers and superyacht maintenance.

Supported by fantastic weather throughout the year, optimal wind conditions and calm, turquoise waters, yachting visitors can enjoy exploring a number of beautiful, largely undeveloped islands just a short boat ride away. The beach town of Pattaya offers magnificent clear waters, white sand beaches and a kaleidoscope of marine wildlife, with many hidden gems right at the doorstep of the marina.
