During our 3-night-stay we endured all 3 nights parties and festivities just beneath our windows.The hotel rents a part of its beachfront garden to groups that have festivities there. We had a sea-front-room close to that area, that is more expansive than garden view, but the windows are not isolated. So even with windows closed it was very loud and a nuisance. Fortunately it stopped at 22h30, but three nights in a row is too much.
The strong point of the Anantara hotels (we have already been to the one in Chiang Rai) are their beautifully styled grounds and tastefully arranged interiors and exteriors with love for details, unmatched by any other hotel. The gardens and landscapes of that in Hua Hin are just superbe. To my taste much more beautiful than those of the Sofitel Hua Hin, where we went for a coffee although difficult to compare. While the Sofitel is much bigger and sterile, the Anantara is a place to dream.
I agree with some other travellers that the rooms start to look a bit used, but just in some minor details.
Another negative point is the location: Sofitel is better located in the center of Hua Hin so you do not need transportation, whereas in the Anantara you have to take the hotel shuttle for which you have to pay (what is a bit petty), and that is not very frequent.
However, the overall beauty of the place is so strong that it compensates for the rest. I would recommend this hotel for garden and nature lovers.
- 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
