“Another fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Just back a few days from 2 weeks in Hua Hin.
This hotel is a hidden gem as people have said before.
Rooms (I always stay pool side, rather than ocean side) are lovely and spacious....everything you could need.
They've now (last time I visited was 2 years ago) also have a nespresso machine in the room...which is a nice touch.
Still the little touches like the turn down service etc are great - that's what sets this place apart from other hotels in the area...the attention to detail.
Breakfast is fantastic, a big choice and the best pastries I have eaten for some time.
Pool is lovely, plenty of sun loungers and the pool attendants coming round with towels, water and Ice Lollies at the weekend is great....all complimentary.

I've never found the staff pushy, in fact usually the opposite.

Happy hour is great, although I usually choose not to drink till later.

Dinner in the restaurant is fabulous, lovely food and a great setting...basically on the beach, I think it's one of the best views from a restaurant in Hua Hin.

We did a couple of things with the hotel this time. The cookery course is well worth doing, included going to the market to look at the ingredients with the head chef.
Was fascinating, especially as my son wants to be a chef.
Then cooking great Thai food with the chef again....photos and all details so you can try again at home are given....can't recommend enough this activity.

All in all, had a lovely holiday....yes you probably could stay somewhere cheaper, but this isn't about cheap...it's a holiday and I personally like to stay somewhere that's a bit more classy and has all the comforts you like.
In addition it feels more comfortable than say the hilton (which I'm sure is fine) but it just could be any hotel in the world....and I use plenty with work!
Seriously, try this place...you really won't be disappointed.

There is so much I could say about this place - it really is a little gem in the crown of Hua Hin! Everything just went so well in the 10 days we stayed. We are already planning our next year trip there. The location is great and you can walk into town in 10 mins, if that is too much or too hot, the tuk tuks are a wonderful free service provided. Probably the best thing about Putahracsa is the staff! Everyone is so helpful, so smiley and will go out of their way to make sure you are having a wonderful holiday. There were so many wonderful people there that spoke to us but Ton & Ave were so helpful. As is the lovely man who stands outside in the boiling sun to make sure you cross the road safely if you need to get to the other side. Our jacuzzi sea view room was very contemporary, peaceful and HUGE! Plenty of room for 2 adults and 1 child. We loved sitting outside at night on the terrace and enjoying a drink and my son absolutely loved the jacuzzi. The pools are wonderful at the resort, the big one across the road is better for kids as it is more shallow if the kids are young. Pool service around the room was great, bottled water in coolers were delivered and in the weekend we had home made fruit ice lollies brought over. Breakfast is served during the week across the road but in the weekend if you are staying ocean side it is served at the Oceanside Restaurant. Personally, I think the breakfast is much better there, as there is way more selection! We were so sad to leave and I can't wait to go back. I am so glad we choose Putahracsa in Hua Hin. Well done Putahracsa, you made it a very special trip for us to Hua Hin.

Room Tip: I think staying ocean side is better but I preferred the pool on the other side.

Stayed here at a villa and can only cimpliment the resort on service-design-friendliness.
Compared to other branded 5 star resorts, putahracsa feels more authentic . We ordered some items from the restaurant menu at the beach club and food was really creative and of great quality. Keep it up putahracsa!

I booked a pool suite for 6 nights based on the reviews..Staff just being pleasant doesn't equal 5 star service.We have stayed at many 5 star hotels and this is well below par.
Yes the staff are pleasant but do they ensure everything is top notch,no they don't.
The room
Pool Suite 403
A nice room with private pool and Jacuzzi and private relaxing area.Spolied for us by the next suite being renovated for 4 of the 6 days we were there.Surrounded by workman including one up a ladder who kept staring at us in the pool.From 9am to 4pm each day they were hammering,drilling etc.
We booked this as I was recovering from surgery and not up to going on excursions so we really used the room and the facilities but it was spoiled by all the noise.

The room comes with a 'butler'.You need to contact them and when we did we had mixed results.
They fixed our Jacuzzi quickly and efficiently.However when we wanted to arrange a boat excursion for the following day to escape the noise, they couldn't come up with anything and we never heard from them again.We ended up organising something with a tour company.

The Breakfast
A very strange set up ,where one has to sit on low stools with small tables, in a very busy room which is clearly not big enough to cope with number of guests.The quality and selection is poor.In Thailand you can get marvellous fruit but their selection was always poor with unripe fruit.
Amazing for Asia but they do not offer green tea only English Breakfast and Earl Grey.I had to resort to buying in supermarket and bringing my own.Hardly 5 star.

The Beach area
They have a deck area overlooking a very scruffy beach,The pool is nice but the area is small and all the beds are right next to one another,there is no privacy.They are however very comfortable and the service from the pool bar is good and the selection of cocktails awesome.

The Restaurant
We were really looking forward to this as the reviews were good.What a disappointment when we ate there the first night.The food was bland and boring and not worth a quarter of the price we paid.I had Baked sea bass with not an ounce of flavour or seasoning and my partner had salmon that was overcooked and tasteless with again no seasoning.
We ate out every night after that and had wonderful meals everywhere we tried.I can only assume people enjoy paying over the odds for very average food, just for the location.

In summary we regretted that the Centara was full (which was our original pick )and we should have stuck with one of the other International ones in Hua Hin such as Hilton and Hyatt.We met folks who were staying in both and they were all very happy.

I would come back to Hua Hin but not at Putahracsa.

During my research, I realised that there were several boutique hotels in Hua Hin. I choose for Putaracsa based on the reviews and its strategic location which is in the town. Surprisingly, I found the hotel is very near to those famous restaurants in Hua Hin, e.g. Koti (Thai cuisine), the sukiyaki style claypot and Baan Krai desserts! Walking distance to the night market as well.

I like the lemongrass theraphy oil in the room and the bubble bath! The breakfast was nice with variety food and fresh juices served as well. There was also free shuttle services to the night market.

We went to the Ocean side restaurant for dinner as well. It took quite some time for the dishes to be served. However, we were enjoying the tranquil and relax environment by the beach. When we back to the room, we just realised we had left the camera cover on the sofa bed. Next morning, we went back the restaurant and look for the cover. Glad that the staffs were aware the missing item and help us to keep the little cover. Thanks and appreciate. Else we will need to buy a new camera front cover again =))

The only issue during our stayed was the air-cond in our room. It will automatically turn off and the switch was blacked out which we couldn’t press any. After some time, it will automatically turn on again.

We spent our 6 nights in the oceanbed villa with jacuzzi. room 413. Room was very nice and also the lounge area outside (you can order your breakfast with no add up) was great for breakfast. The lounge area (sunbed etc) was facing the east side, so you can see the ocean and the sun is welcoming you. much better than the breakfast room, too crowded and many mosquitos. the restaurant at the beach and the happy hour are great and give this hotel many many plus points. Certainly the prices are five star but you get great quality in food. if you come with kidz, the pool is okay but not great for that. overall more a romantic hotel than a family hotel. If you come from BKK airport calculate 3 hours travel time without traffic jams. the service was fluctuating. some were trained very well, some maybe fresh, but all tried very hard. great is that you have an espresso machine (illy coffee!) and a bose soundsystem to connect your ipod.

Room Tip: would definitely choose the ocean side / not the garden side.

We celebrated our Anniversary at the resort. We stayed at the ocean bed pool villas which huge and spacious. The Hotel staff have prepared everything for us before our arrival and we had an express Checked in at our villa. All the staff at the Hotel are very attentive and friendly. The staff at this hotel look into small extra details to make sure we had a good stay. Like the staff called us early morning to check what time we expected to reach and IF the room are ready before we could have an early checked in. The breakfast was great, I loved their egg Benedict. and their Blue berry yogurt. Overall we had a great weekend at the hotel and we are definitely going to come back.
