“Excellent well priced great view hotel”
Reviewed 21 February 2010

My Wife and l stayed here for 3 nights at the start of Feb.The hotel is still not even a year old and is located right next to Lets Sea hotel.It is a short walk to the beach maybe 2 mins.The hotel is about 10 mins taxi ride 150 baht each way to hua hin town where some of the best seafood in Thailand is on offer all at reasonable prices.This hotel is really great for familys,has a great pool,excellent food and is just far enough out of town to be a lovely retreat.Our room was on the 5th floor and had an excellent view of the ocean.

We just got back from Hua Hin Mantra for a 3D2N stay. It was a 3 hr car ride from BKK to Hua Hin. We chartered a car that cost about 2200 Baht 01 way, from a nearby travel agent at the hotel we were staying in BKK. There is a cheaper way to get to Hua Hin by Mini bus that cost about 400baht for 01 way. My hubby & I decided to pamper ourselves for once & opt for the luxury ride to Hua Hin.

Hotel
The Mantra Hua Hin is exactly what you see in the website. We booked Deluxe room, got it for 2700baht including breakfast.
Deluxe room was about 35sqm comes with 2 queen bed, nice rain shower & fixtures were still new. I've always liked staying in hotels that are lesser than 3 yrs old. Do Note: It is NOT located on the beach, however there is a private access walking path that leads you right to the beach, it's only about 2mins walk to the beach. So, that was alright for us. You would have to pay tripple the price if you choose to stay at other hotels facing the beach, but even then, I noticed most of the beach facing hotels rooms are not beach facing,unless you got the suite or the family villas. I gathered you're better off staying at other boutique hotels along the same stretch.

Beach
If I were to categorise, I'll rank Hua Hin beach 2nd after Phuket, followed by Pattaya beach in 3rd Placing. It was clean, pristine sandy with good waves, you could go horse riding, kite surfing or jet skiing at Hua Hin Beach. What i really like about Hua Hin, is that there were no street peddlers along the beach, unlike in Pattaya where there were peddlers at every step you take, sun bathers umbrella squashed together, massuese coaxing you for massage, hair breading or trying to sell you stuffs. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that you would not see the same thing in Hua Hin as to Pattaya. It's a good getaway from the hustle & bustle of Bangkok City for couples & families.

Nightlife
Other than a few scattering pubs here & there, Hua Hin is not the main hub for your vibrant nightlife with glitzy neon lights or your typical Go-go bars.

I'll definitely, go back to Hua Hin again if a I have a couple of days to spare over the long weekend away from Bkk.

I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor Review and am not disappointed. We traveled by air-conditioned express train and that was a lot of fun mixing with locals.

Room: The room is spacious, well decorated with two queen beds and nice pillows. The bathroom has good strong shower.
Beach: The hotel is not on the beach. You need to walk on the private road for about 100 meters. The beach is wonderful with soft sand and relatively clean water. The ocean along the gulf of Thailand is not famous for blue clear water. However, the time I visited Hau Hin (December), it was very good and I enjoyed the salt sea and the sand immensely.
Location: It is about 5 km from downtown. So, the place is quiet and peacful and I like it. Our family walked along the beach to downtown and it took us about 1 hour, but it was a very nice strolling along the great beach with many beach activities along the way.
Food: The food is very good, a bit on a high price but good quality. Happy Hour is at 5-6 pm and you buy 1 get 1 free.
Overall: A good place if you like the quiet atmostphere, away from the tourist areas, but still accesible.

The Mantra Resort is a newly opened (April 09) boutique hotel with 49 rooms – it was beautifully decorated and designed. The room was fantastic. All the staff were incredibly polite & friendly and nothing was too much trouble to them – we received 5* treatment throughout the duration of our stay.

The beach is on the doorstep and whilst it was nice enough I did not see anyone swimming in the sea and there were plenty of signs warning of jellyfish (we were there during the rainy season).

On arrival at the hotel we greeted with a warm welcome, an ice cold drink and chilled towels – a nice touch after a 2.5 hour car journey from Bangkok. The food was excellent. There was plenty of choice at breakfast: tea & coffee (continuously topped up!), cereal, fresh fruit, breads, croissants, bacon, eggs, frankfurters ... or you could opt for an Asian style breakfast - noodles, rice dish, soup, etc! Evening meals in the hotel were fantastic too although we generally dined out in the town centre as there were so many great restaurants that were incredibly good value (3 courses & a beer for 2 people for approx £10!).

Complimentary towels were available at the pool. There was also a pool bar where they made wonderful cocktails - the mango and banana daiquiris were amazing! The only slight draw back was that the hotel was about 4 or 5k from the town centre (too far to walk) although you could get a taxi in for 150 bhat (£3) and sometimes we shared taxis in with other guests. However, this would not deter us from returning to this hotel as we loved it so much!

We had a fabulous holiday and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to everyone!

My wife and I went to the Hua Hin Mantra as first timers to Thailand. The hotel was amazing, staff were excellent and nothing was too much of a problem. The owner and his wife met every guest making them all feel welcome. The hotel is absolutely out of this world, the rooms are fabulous and have every amenity possible, sat TV, DVD players for the excellent copies from downtown. The beach is 40 metres away from the hotel and was deserted, absolutely fantastic, warm water clear skies. Only a 15 minute walk up the beach to monkey mountain and Thai temples. The town of Hua Hin is 10 minutes away by Tuk Tuk or Taxi and only costs 150 bhat or £3 (cheap as chips). You can get a shared taxi or bus into town for 40 pence. The food is cheaper than anywhere we have ever been, full red snapper, king prawns, lobster for under a tenner for 2 including beer or wine. If you like your cheap quality fakies Thailand is the place, there is nothing you cannot get at less than a tenth of the price of the original. And cigarettes are only £9 for 200 and they are not fake. All in all a fabulous holiday and hotel, we will be going back again.

Myself and husband spent our honeyoon an the Hua Hin Mantra, it was perfect.

The staff are friendly and the hotel really lived up to what we thought our honeymoon should be like.

It was exactly like the brochure. sometimes when you visit places you can see how the photos have been adapted to make it look better than what it is.....but that is not the case for this hotel.

If you are looking for a relaxing time away then go here!!

A really pleasant hotel. Would recommend upgrade to pool room (Its only £4 a day more) and these rooms are spacious, clean with nice touches. The pool was lovely, not really for children, not massive but classy! Breakfast was good, the staff were really friendly, as we found almost everyone in Thailand.
It's a 1 minute walk to the massive beach, which was always quiet in July.
It's about 5Km south of Hau hin which is 20bt in bus or 150bt (£3) in a taxi so not bad at all.
