My wife and I have just spent the last week staying at the Putahracsa in Hua Hin and we had a wonderful holiday. the staff from the very outset were outstanding and the hotel has excellent facilities. Do not be put off by previous comments about the hotel being on two sites it was not a problem at all and at all times there was at least one member of staff on hand to ensure you crossed the road safely (although traffic was extremely light most of the time)

The manager should be commended for the quality of service the hotel offers. I cannot think of a single improvement the hotel could make to improve their offering.

Room Tip: The silksand rooms are good value but if you can stretch to it the Oceanside villas are very sumptuo...

We stayed in Sansky Villa 302, a nicely decorated, well proportioned, semidetached accommodation with a separate sitting area, walk in shower and separate bath tub. There was ample outdoor space including a huge daybed and a big roof terrace with a large sofa and coffee table where you can enjoy private afternoon tea, room service or even a private barbecue. There are 8 of these villas surrounding an attractive infinity pool shared by the villas and the whole area is quite shaded. There are always several gardeners around maintaining the immaculate grounds, tidying up leaves and watering the lush greenery. The hotel also had another communal pool nearby with plenty of sunbeds and there's a sandy area for beach volleyball. There is a road that divides the property in two and there are further villas, another communal pool, this time with a beach view, and the Oceanside bar & restaurant located on the beach side of the road.

Breakfast at Sala Monsoon was average and there was a reasonable selection but we have often had better at other 4 or 5 star hotels. We, like most guests, only ate breakfast at Sala Monsoon but the meals at the Oceanside bar & restaurant were good and the stylish beachfront setting is probably the best in Hua Hin. The hotel is located about 10 mins walk north of the centre or they offer a complimentary tuk tuk that will drop you anywhere around the centre. We found plenty of other good restaurants within easy reach.

The food, drinks, mini bar etc. were all reasonably priced for a hotel of this standard, especially as some prices are inclusive of service and tax, so you don't feel like they are trying to squeeze every last baht out of you. When we needed some laundry doing, I knew we could get it done much cheaper nearby and the tuk tuk driver recommended Dew's around the corner. He drove me there around 10am, I dropped off 7 items for a fifth of the hotel's cost, gave them my room number and the tuk tuk brought me back. When we returned to the room that afternoon my clothes were already on the bed, washed, ironed, smelling fresh and neatly bagged up.

One afternoon we did the hotel's 1 hour tuk tuk tour followed by afternoon tea for just 500 baht each. It was guided by a charming girl from reception, I think her name was Mew, and took us to a nearby Chinese temple, fishing pier and the Hua Hin train station. She took a photo of us at the start of the tour and later surprised us with a framed copy of the photo that was delivered to our room. The afternoon tea was very nice at the hotel's excellent patisserie called Ob-Oon that is also open everyday serving great coffee and fantastic cakes.

On the downside there were a couple of issues that made our stay less relaxing that we would have wished. Our villa (302) was next to an area where the gardeners congregated which was poorly screened from the sitting room. We kept the blind closed for more privacy but I sometimes found their talking a bit irritating when trying to relax outside on the daybed. At times we also had construction sounds nearby but I suppose this is a drawback when the hotel occupies a relatively small plot and doesn't have extensive grounds surrounding the rooms. Strangely, others hadn't mentioned the stench of sewage that regularly wafts past when you're sat outside. It's not uncommon for the roadside drains to stink in Thailand but the water treatment plant next door is the most likely culprit. Although it was visually attractive, these issues meant that sitting outside the villa was not quite the idyllic experience. It would also be fair to say that the bathroom areas in the villa are overdue a fresh lick of paint.

Although the hotel appears to be classed as a 5 star, it felt more like a good 4 star, but if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Hua Hin and want a more personal, smaller hotel experience with lovely staff and a quiet beach then this is still a great option.

Room Tip: Worth splashing out on a villa for extra space

Putahracsa.
I would like to thank you for your comments about the Landscaping and we already added additional Trees in this area just this morning after receiving your comments.
We also noted your comment about our Breakfast selection. Should you find the time, I would appreciate if you can let us know if there was anything in particular that you noted or missed as we usually receive many compliments on our breakfast but are always eager to improve as well if needed.
Your very positive comments about our team members are well received and we will share this of course with the two team members you refer too as I am sure it will make them happy to hear.

We look forward to a future visit and hope to see you again at Putahracsa.

Kind regards,

We spent 12 nights at the Putharacsa and were both very pleased with everything. Thanks to the friendly and helpful staff.
Good location near Hua Hin center.
Excellent setting, pool areas, rooms etc. Both sides of the resort were good and functional.
Very good welcoming, hospitality, service and housekeeping.
Very good breakfast and excellent food in restaurants though 2-3 times more expensive than the ones in town center. Food quality covers the difference.
Only minus was poor sound insulation in room doors, both terrace and front door.

We spent 6 nights at the Putahracsa and were very impressed with the resort. The rooms were comfortable and roomy. The breakfast choice and quality was excellent. We ate dinner at the resort two evenings and both times our meals were delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient. Putahracsa is very well run and has my recommentation.

We spent 11 nights at the Putahracsa and loved every moment. We have stayed in hua hin many times in bigger brand hotels, but the putahracsa is by far the best.

Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We had a great terrace over looking the pool.

The whole hotel is very well managed and the staff are genuinely caring and 'can do'. Everywhere is very well maintained and very clean. The rooms and hotel are tastefully and minimally furnished. The pool areas have plenty of sun loungers and the water temperature in the pool is just right.

Breakfast was always good with an array of various sorts of food to suit all tastes.

The Oceanside restaurant is brilliant. Fantastic location, right on the beach and the food is the best we have ever had in a Thai hotel ( including the Thai restaurant in the oriental hotel, bangkok). We had many lunches and dinners in this restaurant and tried almost all the Thai menu and every dish was really very good.

Hotel very convenient for the town centre - 10 minutes.

Gripes - pipped music ( not to our taste but some people must like it and we could block it out), mostly double sun beds ( not that user friendly and either in shade or sun with little flexibility to move) and bills included service but additional space left for a tip ( confusing - do staff get service charge? Why ask twice?). These are very minor and did not detract at all from what is a beautiful small hotel with excellent staff.

Thank you to all at the putahracsa!

Room Tip: All are good but we liked the ground floor for easy access to the pool.

Despite it does not have the big name like other international brand, it does not change the fact that it must be the best Hua Hin hotel. We, as a big family, spent the Chinese New Year there. The staff at the hotel, especially the front desk, are very helpful. They help plan every trip, including the trip to local night market, the Cicada market, the sheep farm and etc. They help contact the reliable driver to everywhere. We stayed at the villa which should have been described in every detail in previous comments. We highly recommend this hotel.
