Secret hotel deals offer an opportunity to book hotels at massively discounted prices. The reason for these secret deals is hotels need to fill rooms, and for the sake of its reputation the hotel would rather not publicly advertise such drastic discounts, especially on their own website. What this means for me and you is an affordable luxury hotel which would otherwise be out of our price range. There is a growing number of hotels in Pattaya offering secret deals, usually ranging from 3 to 5 star hotels.
Given the sheer volume of rooms and the competitive nature of the hotel industry in Pattaya, it’s no surprise to see hotels take this opportunity to sell rooms at rates well below those advertised on their own websites.
What’s the catch ?: you’re going to need a sense of adventure, because this process is a little like a lottery. Sure you are going to get a fantastically cheap hotel deal, but until the deal is done the hotel name and exact location will remain secret. It is also important the you read the terms and conditions of secret hotel deals very carefully, most are non refundable if you cancel, and payment must be made in advance.

How to find Secret Pattaya Hotel Deals
The best way to find secret hotel deals in Pattaya is start on the Agoda.com Pattaya hotels page. Enter your search dates, then from the top menu select “Deals”, if you are signed in to Agoda you will see options for “secret deals” and “insider deals”, if you are not signed in you will only see the option for secret deals, click on the “secret deals” option. All the available secret hotel deals in Pattaya will now be visible at the top of the page. The name of the hotel will not be shown, instead something like “5 star hotel in North Pattaya area” will replace it. You will also notice the review rating is vague, and the exact number of reviews is replaced with a more rounded up figure like “based on 990+ reviews” instead of “Based on 996 reviews”.
Viewing a Secret Hotel
Clicking on a selected hotel, for example you decide to click on “5 star hotel in North Pattaya area” will open the hotel page where you usually view the hotel reviews, amenities, photos and map location. Still the identity of the hotel remains secret, there are no photos, no description, no reviews, and the map only shows you the area in Pattaya, instead of the precise location. Only when you actually book and pay for the reservation will the name and all other hotel details be revealed.
Is there a way to find the name of the secret hotel before booking: There is no guarantee that you will reveal the identity of the secret hotel. But say the secret hotel is a 5 star hotel in North Pattaya, with a review rating of “Fantastic 8+” and “based on 4130+ reviews”, simply make a note of all those details. Now deselect “Deals” in the search filter select 5 stars, North Pattaya, and “Fantastic 8+”. Now Look for 5 star hotels with a Fantastic 8+ rating, next look at the review count, if you are lucky there will only be one hotel with a view count close to the secret hotel’s count of 4130+, you might even notice the room types are the same. I can’t say this is foolproof because I have never booked a secret hotel deal, and therefore I can not guarantee this is 100 percent accurate.
