was there for christmas and new year, very friendly staff, excellent pools, nice gardens, beautiful pools but way to cold!
great hotel for golfers couples and families with older kids. not much to do for young kids. ovation is perfect, right in town. the new years dinner was fantastic. the rooms are well equipped, large balcony. Don't expect to much from the beach. It's a small public and very crowded beach.

If you hanker after the grand European resorts of Pre WW1 Europe, in Venice, south of France , Brighton, then Centara is for you. What has disappeared from Europe or is out of your budget is located in Hua Hin, with the added benefit of Asian weather, a half decent beach and wonderful Thai service.
Centara does not disappoint . The building and grounds are superb and are a destination in itself. Hua Hin is just outside the walls but feels one hundred kilometres away.
There is plenty here. Plenty of space, plenty of pools, chairs,food,choices,smiles.
This is a grande lady indeed, still in her prime.

Room Tip: Every room has a balcony and a pleasant outlook.

Visited the Centara to attend a family wedding, held on the beach next to the hotel.
The hotel itself has a splendid colonial style and feels very different from the usual tower blocks. Staff very friendly and attentive, with added touches such as the harpist playing at breakfast.
Excellent pools & beautiful grounds with very large topiary.
Wedding facilities superb, including set up on beach & reception in the grounds.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights just before Christmas and enjoyed our stay. Beautiful room (deluxe) with large balcony with view on the colonial pool and the beach. I loved spending time there watching the many birds and squirrels on the branches just in front of our balcony.
Comfortable bed.
Good, well organized breakfast.
The hotel is large and surrounded by a beautiful, well kept garden. 3 Swimming pools. Only complaint about the swimming pools is that the water was much too cold so almost no swimmers there,
Wifi was free in the lobby and library but I think that for the price you pay for the room, wifi should have been free of charge in the room as well.
Prices of drinks in the hotel, at the swimming pool etc. are ridiculous. Much too high. Especially with so many much cheaper and good options in the immediate vicinity.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Location of the hotel was very good; right in the centre of Hua Hin, at the beach. Plenty of good restaurants and bars closeby.

First thing to say that this is a big hotel, but it covers such a large area that it is never crowded. The gardens are unforgettable with topiary that apparently is 80 years old. We were there for New Year when it was full but there was plenty of space and sunbeds were never a problem. There must be twice as many as there are guests. Breakfast was massive and good quality, Thai, Western,Japanese. In the Club lounge there were drinks and snacks all day including High Tea. The location is brilliant for walking out to other bars and restaurants. The smiles and the staff just made it unforgettable.

Fantastic location. Staff amazing. Food fantastic. Brilliant relaxed vibe. Loved our stay. Best breakfast I have had as a traveller so far. Nice little touches by hotel when spending time at the pool by offering wet refreshing towels, cold fruit. Little treat left in room every afternoon was much appreciated.

After six years, We've been back at this hotel for the second time and were once again not disappointed! It has the flair of an old colonial Hotel which one has to like. we find it calming and relaxing with excellent service.
There is no private beach but the pools are lovely and the public beach is right in front of the hotel and very nice. Spa treatment was excellent too.

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
