Video from a local news report captured the moment 18 men were rounded up with their female partners clutching them to hide their faces.
The British men were also accompanied by Americans, Germans, Canadians, Australians, Russians, Malaysians and Chinese party-goers, who were all questioned and released.
The Chinese hotel owner was arrested for running a hotel illegally and hosting sex parties.
Naris Niwapantawong, District Sheriff in the Banglamung area of Pattaya where the raid happened, said the men from many different countries ‘exchanged partners with each other’.

He added: ‘We received a complaint about the Tulip Hotel. We were told they organised sex parties at the weekends.
‘My staff co-ordinated with police, immigration and the military to strike quickly and accurately.
‘We carried out the operation while they were having sex and we shut them down.’
The Tulip Hotel in the Nong Prue district of Pattaya has 30 rooms over four different floors. It is split into several zones, with the one floor dedicated as the ‘play zone’.
Officers said that ‘almost all of the participants’ were in the play zone when the building was raided.
There were also three hotel staff, who were allegedly tasked with serving hot tea to the guests, cleaning up the rooms and joining in with the sex games.
Condoms, lubricants and sex toys were also found scattered around the building and collected as evidence.
The hotel owner Sheng Liao Yang, 53, from China was arrested on suspicion of running a hotel without a license and hosting obscene events.
Sheriff Niwapantawong added: ‘The site was hosting parties for those who prefer sex that involve exchanging partners.
‘To attend the event, participants had to register through a website. There was a rule that party members must be male and female couples. The cost per night was 1,500 baht per person.
‘Police investigated the claims first and gathered evidence and a warrant before striking the premises.
‘The men were found to be from many countries including the United Kingdom, America, Australia, Germany and Malaysia. Many guests had visited previously.
‘A prosecutor is now developing the case against the hotel owner.’
Pattaya on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand has become known as the sex capital of the world since American servicemen began visiting in the 1960s during ‘rest and relaxation’ time from duties in Vietnam.
A bustling night life scene grew and the area is now home to thousands of bars, strip clubs and massage parlours.
