A luxurious and meticulously presented boutique resort within walking distance to some of Hua Hin's busiest streets but far away enough for a quiet getaway. We stayed at the Sansky villa and absolutely fell in love with the place. I don't like boutique hotels that are too small and cramped so this was just what we were looking for. The villas have their own plunge pool, separate from the Silksand rooms and each villa comes with a huge sun bed and roomy upstairs terrace with comfy daybed sofa.
I found the inside of the Sansky villa to be much nicer and more spacious than the website picture makes out. Whitewashed walls, white furniture and fittings combined with solid wooden floors, doors and accents give the room a very natural, clean feel. The bed was nice and soft. I found the pillows a bit wimpy, I prefer firm pillows, but my husband loved them. The bathroom is huge and I loved how the bathing area (tub, rain shower), hand basin/vanity and toilet are all separate. The only annoying thing is when one person is running a bath you can't shower because the water pressure goes down so there's no hot water.
Coffee and tea making facilities adequate, didn't touch the minibar - daylight robbery prices. There are plenty of towels and shampoo, bath gel, lotion are refilled twice a day. I love that they also clean out your room twice a day!
We had a lot of seafood takeaway from the local market and they would bring us plates, cutlery, glasses for our own wine and then clean up for us afterward. The staff will even peel and cut up any fruits you buy from the market beautifully and bring it to your room complete with plates and forks! Turn down service is fantastic, they will plug in the bedside mosquito repellent and light some aromatherapy oils for you.
Spa facilities are first class and beautifully decorated. There was a happy hour promotion - buy one, get one free - so I happily booked a session for myself and my husband. We did the oil massage and body scrub, the oils have the most heavenly smell. I also took the manicure/pedicure package and my nails were very well done. If you have a chip or a smudge you can even go back and they will redo them for you!
The best part must be the staff, they are amazing and we ended up being spoiled silly by the end of our stay. They were helpful, attentive, courteous and made us feel like stars.
The beach is wide enough for a stroll or jog in the evenings and plenty of sea shells and crabs to chase after. I didn't find the sea as dirty as I thought it would be. The water was clear enough for me to see my toes when I was wading knee high so much better than Pattaya. Too windy to swim in the evenings although a few hardy souls were braving the surf.
The only thing preventing me from giving this resort 5 stars is the food. Breakfast was set up beautifully but lacking in taste and quality. Same menu every morning gets boring when you're staying for a longer period. The fried rice was hard and bland, the salad selection poor, rubbery sausages, bread was ok. Overall not half as good as the Hideaway, a 3 star resort! Despite our misgivings over breakfast we decided to take a chance and try the Christmas menu - big mistake! The prawns salad consisted of one prawn, sliced in two. My sea bass was hard, dry, overcooked and tasteless. The mashed potato it was served on was the only redeeming feature. Christmas log dessert was like eating sponge smothered in artificially colored cream. Yuck.
