Having spent two nights in Bangkok on arrival from UK, we travelled on to Anantara Resort Spa Hua Hin in a private taxi (Oriental Escapes Taxi Service) on 28th April 2013 as part of our 13 nights stay in Thailand.
We had reserved a Premium Sea View for our 8 night’s stay which turned out to be the best option. The room was on 2nd floor (UK 1st floor) and right on the seafront with beautiful tropical plants and trees around. The best feature of this room is the balcony. On the balcony was a patio table with two chairs and a lounger bed. You don’t really need to venture out to get a sun bed on the beach because the lounger bed on our private balcony was better than being on the sun beds on the beach – well sprung and with plenty of cushions. One could observe other guests looking up at us (somewhat enviously?) as they went around placing towels on sun beds early in the morning in order to reserve them.
The gardens are a real treat to walk around – all those tropical flowers, bushes and trees being lovely cared for by the squad of gardeners. The pool is nice and clean and appears to be well maintained. There are sun beds and umbrellas (see photos attached).
The staff are very pleasant and helpful – service with a smile! There is a good select of food and beverage and the prices reflect the hotel’s star rating.
Wish we had stayed on instead of returning to Bangkok for a further two nights stay before returning home to UK>
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The 187-room Anantara Resort Hua Hin is a distinctive Thai village-style property located on the sunrise coast of the Gulf of Thailand, around 220 kms south of Bangkok. Hidden amidst 14 acres of luxuriantly landscaped gardens and lagoon pools, the picturesque resort enjoys a beachfront location at the quiet end of Hua Hin's long sandy beach for only 5 kms. from Hua Hin town centre. A three-meters high terracotta wall cleverly cocoons the resort from the hustle and bustle of town. As you make your way along the landscaped driveway, a sense of calm descends. The sense of arrival is heightened as you admire a decorative wall adorned with a parade of elephants. A cool breeze drifting in from the beach floats through the open-air Lobby with the strains of a melodic Thai tune lingering. Polished timber floors and Thai-style salas (pavilions) heighten the ambience of an intimate tropical hideaway. ... more less
