We stayed there for 4 nights in June. On arrival we were booked in an ocean view rooms. They are quiet spacious and very nice, but very dark (at least the ground floor ones). We came with another couple. When we go to our rooms, there was a terrible smell in both of the rooms, coming from the sink or the toilets. Even the staff member who had accompagnied us, when she walked in the room, she went straight to the sliding door to open it. When we mentionned the smell she said it was normal that she couldnt smell anything. We ask to change the rooms, and they told us they would check for availabilities. Our friends told us later that they had been changed and upgraded to the lagoon rooms. We still hadnt heard from the reception. I had to go back there and ask. They told me they would show me the new room. It was the exact same room with the same smell, just in another block. I told her this wasn't good enough, and asked why they had offered a lagoon room to my friends and not to us. Then straight away she said they can give me the same room if I wanted. I still don't understand why we had to go through all this hassle, and why they don't offer the same arrangment to all the clients. I would have been fine with another ocean view room if they didnt offer me the room with the same smell. This didnt give me a first good impression.
After that the stay was good though. I think its worth upgrading for the lagoon view rooms. They are nicely decorated and you get access to a nice private pool. The bed is very comfortable. The room was very clean and they were even coming back twice to do it. The room would be cleaned while we had breakfast, and in the evening when we would come back, the bed was fixed again and they left a little personnal good night handwritten note, which I found to be a great touch. The room itself was very clean, but on the first day, the room next door had left outside of the door plates and glasses from room service. It stayed there for our whole stay, nobody ever took it away, it didn't look great. The hotel itself is very nice, peaceful and the gardens are beautiful. The breakfast was absolutely great, a lot of choice and fresh products.
- 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
