“relaxing, beautiful and a pleasure”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Myself and my husband spent the week from 3rd sept until 10th sept staying at the hotel for our honeymoon. We stayed in the Superior room and were given a room overlooking the sea. The room was spacious and lovely, the bed very comfortable and everything was clean and a high standard.
Hua Hin itself was beautiful and the hotel staff were welcoming and friendly and very helpful to first time visitors to not just the hotel but to Thailand, helping with everything from the best places to visit to bartering in markets and how much we should be paying for things.
The pools were all well maintained, the gardens lovely and breakfast was superb with an excellent choice. It was a lot more expensive to eat/drink within the premises compared to Hua hin-which is right on the doorstep due to hotel;'s excellent location.- but the food was high quality and there were happy hours and specials to always take advantage of.
We took advantage of the reduced price bbq on the beach and were disappointed when it was moved form the beach location to the railway restaurant due to forcast rain as we did go in rainy season. This of course was not fault of the hotel and we still had an excellent night and the staff were attentive and very friendly.
If we are lucky enough to visit Thailand again. i wouldn't think to stay anywhere else and would highly reccomend this hotel. We are already looking to come back for our wedding anniversary

Myself and my wife stayed at the Centara Grand Beach Resort, the hotel is really nice, opened planned and comfortable, our room was spacous and comfortable and clean. The only thing about the rooms is that WIFI is not free, Something Centara should look at if you want to be ahead of your competitors.

The hotel gardens and pools are very nice, plenty of sun lounges and areas to walk, the beach is not the best location in Hua Hin, big rocks that can be dangerous if swimming bear footed.

The Elephant Bar was fantastic for pre and end of evening drinks before walking the short walk, into Hua Hin. The staff where fantastic, in fact the staff throughout the hotel where fantastic, very helpfull and pleasant (True Thai).

The breafast station restaurant, was very busy, but the selection of food and availibility was top notch.

The hotel is well situated in Hua Hin short 5min walk to the restaurants, shops and bars.

Overall a very pleasant relaxing hotel, with great staff. Would recommend it

Room Tip: View the rooms, try and stay on the ground floor.

We stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and fell in love with it... So much so that we decided to hold our wedding here and bring our family and friends with us.

We stayed at the hotel for a total of 7nights in a dulux pool villa, which included club access. The pool villas are amazing and have their own private pools! The beds are extremely comfortable and the amenities in the room more than met our needs.

The hotel is now owned wholly by Centara but the level of service has not changed since it was part owned by Sofitel and the staff are what really make this place special. They cannot do enough for you, whether it is teaching you Thai phrases at breakfast or organising trips to the local vineyard, they go the extra miles. All the restaurants in the hotel are excellent and there is a wide range of food (European, Thai, Japanese, seafood) at reasonable prices.

There are four pools in the hotel, do it never gets crowded and the gardens are idyllic and immaculate kept.

Needless to say our wedding day was amazing and again the staff were superb catering for our every request.

We just want to say what a superb hotel this is and from start to finish we had a great week. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and all our family and friends have said what a great luxurious place it is (not easy to please that many people but this hotel did)

Thank you to all at the hotel and we will be back to celebrate our anniversary in the years to come!

Beautiful hotel set amongst stunning gardens and a very central beachfront location. Ideal for a peaceful few days with a great selection of restaurants and bars on your doorstep. The Deluxe Pool Villa room was very nice with a decent sized plunge pool to cool down. Club membership was worth it alone for the free daily cocktails,wine and tasty snacks although if staying at the Villas we would suggest having breakfast their as opposed to the walk across the road as it was quieter with very attentive service (the poached eggs were superb!). We will be returning on our next trip to Hua Hin for sure!

This is a very special and luxurious place. About a hundred years old, the hotel has been renovated with great care, combining the beauty and grandeur of its original style with the standard of a modern five-star place. Staff is exceptionally friendly, rooms are classy and the beach is just a minute away. Fully recommended.

On balance it was even better this time! We have stayed here many many times and it really does get better. The essence of the Hotel is the Thai hospitality combined with French cuisine and style in a wonderful old building full of character. (Don't look at the modern picture at the top of this page as it is NOT the Centara!)

The staff are quite outstanding and the new management has allowed them to take responsibility for the quality of the service they provide and the investment in people is paying off. Somehow there is an even keener effort to make sure that everything is right and the loyalty of the staff is paying off as it is always nice to see the same faces there each time we come and to be greeted by name.

The Club is better again this year and the offerings throughout the day are delicious and the choice of cocktails and wines is excellent.

The Hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the town, but is not at all noisy. The beach is directly on the edge of the property and it is possible to walk for miles on the sand when the tide is out. It wold be helpful if the low tide time was published in the hotel somewhere by the way.

The four pools are spotless and the pool staff are very attentive. The Elephant Bar provides superb service and an enjoyable atmosphere in the evening.

All in all, there is nothing to beat this Hotel - if you are a normal human being! Just come and be spoilt, relax and let everyone take care of you.

Room Tip: Any room is fine, but families might prefer the Villas. Obviously the suites provide more room and...

We are currently staying at the Centara resort Hua Hin, and it's amazing. Food exceptional,service and rooms first class. We have stayed many times in Hua Hin, and this is our first time in this hotel. We have already booked for next year, as we have had such a wonderful time.
We received a lovely basket of luxury goods and wine, on arrival. Every day the staff give us little cakes and flowers, it's so lovely. We have two weeks to go, and are so pleased we are staying here.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the beach are quiet.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin first opened its doors in the early 1920s at a time when Hua Hin was still a sleepy coastal village. This five-star beachfront resort was built along the classic lines of that era, with phenomenal gardens and beautifully spacious rooms and suites (up to 170 square metres) with high ceilings, polished hardwood flooring, period furniture, and the warm tones of Thai silk. The resort is also home to 42 single-storey villas that offer privacy and space (up to 120 square metres) and the choice of a Jacuzzi or plunge pool on the terrace. Beside Hua Hin’s gorgeous beach, a stone’s throw away, and a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy to the full, the resort also offers plenty of leisure options for adults and children: four swimming pools and children’s pools, a superb spa, a fitness centre, tennis courts, Muay Thai and Tai Chi classes, and two kids clubs. Plus, the town is outside our door, and some of the best golf courses in Thailand are within easy travelling distance. The dining venues include a colonial style café and all-day dining restaurant, a Japanese restaurant, a Thai restaurant located near the villas, and the modern COAST Beach Club & Bistro. With its setting on the beach and its elegant atmosphere, the resort also is the perfect setting for a dream wedding. ... more   less
