After looking through so many hotels in Hua Hin, my wife and I decided to book 3 nights (9 to 12 Jan) with Amari base on the previous great reviews. And we are glad to have book this hotel, it didn't disappoint at all.
We arrived at the hotel slightly late due to the travel time from Bangkok airport. And I informed the hotel about us arriving around 4pm just in case. Once we reached the hotel, the door guy was really helpful and help us with our bags and carried it to the hotel lobby. While we were checking in with the front desk, another staff came by with welcome drinks. We needed that refreshing drink as the journey from Bangkok to Hua Hin was around 3 hours. We were pleasantly surprised by the upgrade to Pool View on the highest floor (7th floor), thumbs up for that! The surprises did not end there, they even assigned one of the staff to walked us to our room. Once she opened up the hotel room, we all broke into laughter. They have actually prepared a piece of wedding anniversary cake for us, and even did some romantic decoration on the bed with towels folded as swans and surrounded with rose petals! Wow, impressive and how thoughtful. When booking the hotel, I actually did mentioned that we are on our wedding anniversary and did not think much that the hotel will go to the extend of preparing such a wonderful surprise. Very nice gesture indeed.
The rooms in great size, comfortable bed, the bathroom is clean and loaded with shampoo and shower gel. One thing is they missed out on the toothbrush and tooth paste but a call to the customer service and toothbrush and paste was send up right away in 5 minutes.
Wide selection for breakfast, we enjoyed our breakfast every morning. Breakfast is always a busy affair but the waiting staff are attentive and refilling our coffee without fail. Thumbs up!
The concierge staff good as well. We wanted to go visit some sights and asked the concierge to arrange for car to bring us to the 2 places. We paid 1,500 Baht to go to 2 places, reasonable and comfy ride.
Cicada market is just located nearby, about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We like Cicada market, very interesting venue with locals, artists selling their wares. And also live portrait drawings by artists there (around 60 baht per person).
There is also a very nice dessert, pastries cafe nearby the hotel. Can't remember what's the place call but they serve food as well as cakes and desserts. We didn't get to try the cakes but we did try the pasta there, price is reasonable (pasta 220 baht) and not bad as well.
Getting around to the night market is easy. Just walk opposite the hotel and wait for the green taxi. Wave and hop on for 10 Baht per person before 9pm after 9pm will be 15 Baht, took us about 15 minutes ride to the night market. Taking a tuktuk from the night market back to hotel cost around 200 Baht.
The hotel also provide a buggy ride to the beach front club. Nice place to chill and have some grill food in the evening or night. We even took a long walk along the beach to the mountain nearby with the big golden Buddha. It's a 2 hour slow walk to and back, very relaxing. Occasionally you can see horses walking along the beach and people doing some sea activities (banana boat, jet ski). On our way back to the Beach front club, we sat down at the club and ordered some drinks n food. Enjoying the sea breeze and soaking in the great night. While we were leaving the club and waiting for the buggy, we happened to bum into the GM and he offered us a ride back to the hotel. Thanks so much for that! :)
Overall, wonderful stay and great experience. Amari Hua Hin is the place to stay if you are looking for excellent service and relaxing stay.
Thank you so much, we will be back for sure!
