We originally booked to stay at the Anantara Hua Hin for 4 nights but were so impressed with this place that we extended to 8 nights.
Stayed in a Premium Garden View Room which was wonderful. Very large and comfortable room with a well furnished balcony offering great view of the jungle like garden where you enjoy the birds tweeting all day.
The customer service is excellent. There is a very high number of staff here and all the staff from management / front desk to housekeeping are eager to assist guests. English language skills are very good.
The clientele is overwhelmingly European (Scandinavian, German, British etc).
On the downside, the beach here is not the best in Thailand and tends to be too rough for swimming but the resort's pool is excellent. Getting a lounger by the sea presents the usual problem of people inconsiderately placing towels / possessions on the loungers to "reserve" them for the day but the staff will attempt to provide you with a lounger if none are available.
Location is some 6Km north of Hua Hin City but the resort provides an hourly shuttle van to and from the city (cost 50 Baht per person each way) where there are a multitude of restaurants and shopping opportunities.
We had dinner at the Sala restaurant one night and disappointingly found the food to be served cold and had to request it to be reheated.
Overall though, the Anantara Hua Hin is a brilliantly managed resort and everybody staying there seemed to be very satisfied.
We would certainly not hesitate to recommend staying here. You are unlikely to be disappointed.

- 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
