The pool is very big. You can swim and play around but the water is not clean.
Too much mosquito at night. The bed is quite comfortable but the curtain couldn't block the sunlight in the morning. So if you plan to wake up late, better prepare something to cover it. (Depends on your room location though)

If you room is very far, you have to call the operator and ask for buggy car.
The buggy car is not really enough for all the guest so you might have to wait for quite sometime.

If you drive there, the parking lot is not really enough for all the room and for the weekend, most likely you have to park outside the hotel but it was ok for us as we saw the security guard walking around and check.

Difficult to find the way to the hotel.
The sign are not enough and very small to notice especially at night.
Don't use google maps on your phone because most of the location that pinned are all wrong!

Apart from all this, I like this place if the location is not too far from the main road and at a cheaper price. But if you looking for a big pool in the pool villa, this is the place for you.

Stayed at AKA for 6 nights and it was absolutely wonderful. The villa was a lot more then what we were ecpecting. And their dinner menu is to die for. I would recommend their duck breast and lamb chops. Definatly coming back again.

The staffs were attentive and friendly to offer any assistance you may require. The food was just great both for breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was normally served on a -la-carte basis unless the hotel is packed on some weekends (they will serve buffet in that case.) Their egg benedict was just perfect to start relaxing day.

There was problem about cleanliness esp for the outdoor bathtub. LCD TV could be a good addition for in-room entertainment. The hotel also offers very nice spa but be ware of 5 stars price tag.

The hotel is located far from the beach and surronded by mountains. If you look for a place where you could just enjoy swimming in your private pool and good food in the property, this is the place for you. Otherewise, you may want to look elsewhere.

Ok you are not going to like this palce if you need a kids club, karaoke machine, or bingo night as part of your experience, but if you are a couple wanting a quiet place to hide for a few days, I am struggling to figure out what's not to like.

Firstly this review is for the Guti, not the main AKA which I have also reviewed and rated it pretty highly.

We were actually booked at the Seraton but checked out promptly after checking in and rang the Guti, looking for a quiet room. They took care of the rest.

We arrived, they knew who we were, they showed us a couple of rooms, we settled for a two bed with absolute privacy looking out over the Black Mountains, and we were relaxing in ten minutes with a beer next to our pool, while they cleaned the room.

We had room service dinner which was excellent, breakfast was bit limited but did have an egg station and freshly brewed coffee, so met our needs.

Some people have said the place is tired, clealry they have not owned a property in tropical climate. Basically what the Guti have done is blended into the environment, which means not slappimg glossy paint on everything, but letting the materials mix and fade as nature inteded. Truly a masterpiece in foresight and taste. I also loved the indoor outdoor flow of the villa.

The staff couldn't do enough for us, and I also loved the understated uniforms, simple black pyjama style, again class.

Sum up, if you are a couple looking for absolute privacy, in a place that has been exquisitley thought out, try it.

Tip, Plonk down a bit extra for a two bed on the front, and you can leave your swimming trunks at home.

I could easily find negative things to say about AKA but I don't want to because the whole was better than the sum of the parts. Our 1 bedroom deluxe pool villa was divine. The spaciousness and privacy with our quite large private pool was great. We had a compound with a large bedroom, spacious bathroom with outdoor shower and sunken tub, comfortable living room with wet bar and stocked fridge, second complete bedroom and bath in another bale (they call it the "spa room") and the pool with deck and lounge chairs and dining area. All of this is surrounded by a high privacy wall and planted with healthy, flowering plants. There is also a second floor lounge area with a view of the entire resort. The air conditioning worked perfectly and the bar was conveniently (and oddly) stocked with fairly priced pints of rum, vodka, etc. as well as water (complimentary) and soft drinks. The bathroom amenities were plentiful and nice quality. The staff was charming and very available and helpful. I don't speak Thai and appreciated the fact that most of them spoke some English. The resort provides a shuttle to Hua Hin which we found convenient for trips to town for dinner, etc. The breakfast was more generous than I require so should be good for those who eat hearty breakfasts. We ordered lunch delivered to our compound twice and ate one lunch at the restaurant. All meals were delicious and though not cheap like eating in local restaurants were good value for a hotel restaurant and room service. Cocktails before we went to town to dinner were well made and graciously served by the pool when we asked.

While it wasn't their fault that it was cold while we were there (really cold) they apologized none-the-less. The spa was okay--beautiful, but the staff was not particularly skilled. I had better and certainly cheaper treatments in town. There are some maintenance issues. The outdoor bath tub was not inviting--tired and grubby looking. The wooden decking around the pool is due for replacement or repair. The only real issue for me was what should have been a charming water feature within the compound of our villa--but the water was stagnant. While it didn't smell bad and there were not mosquitoes, it was not appealing. The same is true of some of the water features in the public parts of the beautifully landscaped resort. But really for what we got and the great price we felt it was extraordinary value and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: I think all deluxe 1 bedrooms are identical, but some are farther from reception and the restaurant, etc. They will always send a golf cart to pick you up if you call and ask.
