Stayed at Anantara with six girl mates to celebrate one of our birthdays...what a delight this hotel is :-) We were warmly welcomed on arrival by the very friendly Darwan presenting cool towels and refreshing butterfly juice (I had to ask "real butterflies"??...but was reassured no ;-) ) which was great after a long flight from London and taxi transfer from Bangkok.
The rooms are clean and spacious enough to accommodate 3 adults in our room and the resort is beautiful with magnificent gardens and swimming pool which were the best maintained I have ever seen.The beach is not great and is the reason I have awarded 4 stars but that is because a good/pretty beach is important to me... as mentioned; the pool is excellent if that is your thing.
Breakfast was good with a generous selection of sundries
BUT what really makes the Anantara a special hotel is its staff.....they were friendly, courteous and charming...as we moved around the hotel they greeted us with smiles and a genuine willingness to please. A real credit to the resort. Because of the staff the atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant; the little touches of making up the sunbeds for you and of bringing cold towels/ fruit/ canapes to the sunbeds during the day are super special.
Manager Daniel deserves a special mention for helping with arrangements for our special birthday celebration at a nearby beach club which he recommended and then endorsed by being there himself to celebrate his wedding anniversary!!! He seemed very hands-on and approachable with all the guests.
Would definitely recommend Anantara if you are going to Hua Hin . Enjoy!!
- 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
