Just back from seven night stay at this wonderful hotel/resort. This is the best hotel my wife and I have ever stayed at.
A nice cold face towel and refreshing drink await you on arrival and the procedure is done quickly and very welcoming.
we stayed in a standard garden deluxe room which was great, a nice size room with a massive bed, plenty of wardrobe space, bathroom was a bit on the small size. Be warned when we entered our room there was quite a few mossies in there which we had to dispatch! (see below)
All the staff were really good at what they do, any questions ask a guy called Alex he seemed to be the man with all the answers.
Food: three restaurants to choose from, an Italian, a seafood and a beach side area that held the BBQ's and lunchtime snacks. We ate at all three, the standard of food is brilliant with really varied menus. These restaurants are a bit more expensive than your usual Thai restaurants but we both agreed well worth it. Breakfast was unreal, every nationality was catered for, from fresh sushi! to eggs done to any kind of order, there was also plenty of fresh fruit to dig into. We paid about €50 each for the seven breakfasts, good value.
During the middle of our stay the hotel hosted a cocktail night at the beachside restaurant followed by a Bar B Q, this was a nice way of meeting other guests, mainly Thai, Japanese, Germans, with a few Russians, English and Irish thrown in for good measure.
Spa: this like most spa treatments was very expensive but a real treat, very peacful surroundings down by the deluxe lagoon rooms.
This hotel is set in wonderful landscaped tropical gardens with lagoons and ponds. This is obviously a haven for the little buggers. My wife and I were both bitten on our first night there, me eight times on one leg! You really do have to smother yourself in repellant, we found the Ben's brand the best. If you are prone to insect bites come prepared.
This would be our only gripe, be warned, on every food/drink item the hotel adds a 10% service charge and a 7% Government tax, on top of this there is an area of the bill left for you to fill in a tip, staff told us they don't get the 10% service charge. This can make things quite pricey when you realisticly have to add 27% onto everythin you buy. Surely one service charge is enough on any bill, we believe Anantara Manaement need to look into this or inform their clients that the service charge is not for the staff, as we didn't tip for first two days because we thought that it was included.
Overall a magnificent Hotel set in beautiful gardens, which we would highly reccomend to anyone, a great place to realax and concentrate on some serious loafing. Just watch out for the mossies though.!
- 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
