    I can just confirm that it is closed. Had a walk by a few days ago. There is a "Temporary closed" sign on the door. No information if/when to reopen.

    The bars are now all open. New bars have opened in Jomtien.
    The Gogo bars have reopened.
    The Thai Pass is revoked next month.
    All quarantine finished.

    As mentioned above nothing on the website, except a promise to reopen last November which obviously never happened.

    I fear the worst

    It would be a loss. That area is being developed with up-market apartments. It's a bit like Babylon in that the site must be unusually valuable.

    I feel sorry for Punya if it does close; he put a lot into the venture and created something special.

    He made a huge area on the second floor right in front of the sun terrace with several empty rooms that were never used for anything. I guess it was a lot of money. I never understood why he did it. I think I saw Punya in one of those Beach Road Pride videos, he looks upset.

    The down-turn began before Covid. The improvements (including an excellent-I'm told- fitness room and the massage rooms) were underused just as BT was dying.

    My worry was that the pricing for entry was such that younger Thais couldn't afford it. Falangs will go to a venue where the cute guys are, not to ones where they can only engage with other falangs. When it opened , Sansuk allowed free or reduced entry to the under twenty-fives. And the falangs followed!

    However, the swimming pool and the restaurant certainly remained a draw for me.

    Me and my boyfriend stayed many times in Punya's gesthaus between 2017.-20.and were very happy there. Wanna to return to Pattaya in this Winter but without the Sansuk not the same... Maybe who stay now in Pat can to have more information, please.

    Hate to say it, but the first iteration of Sansuk was the best, imo. The more he added to it, the worse it got. At the very beginning, the pool area was beautiful and peaceful, the clientele was awesome, young college boys from Bangkok even came to visit on the weekends..it was paradise. I guess this was 2008-ish? not sure. The huge hotel building never made any sense to me; I'm SURE Punya never had 100% occupancy even once. The old steam room area, dark room, and...other areas, were tons of fun (some later removed or just aged to disuse). i never understood why he made the decisions he made. Who knows. At any rate, I have no idea if/when Sansuk will reopen, but I will be back in town in a few weeks and will certainly go over there to investigate.

    To digress a bit about the college boys from Bangkok. Apparently there's a Thai dancing academy in Bangkok somewhere that offers college degrees. Some boys from that school (sure wish now I knew what school it is) used to come to Sansuk on the weekends. They were as beautiful as you could imagine they would be, graceful, and funny. Very entertaining at the pool.
