“So relaxing that we hardly moved from the hotel”
Reviewed 1 February 2011

"Relaxed" certainly is the description you will use to describe your holiday if you stay at the Rest Detail. This is a very laid back establishment - normally we would be looking to go on a trip / do something different after a couple of days - but not here - apart from eating in downtown Hua Hin everynight we did not move for the first four days!

Lovely pool - plenty of sun beds and chairs - with a pool side bar and restaurant. Menu would get a little limited if you stayed for more than a week - the restaurant, although offering a snack menu caters more for the big dinners - a greater selection of pool snacks would be nice. However happy hour by the pool - 1600 - 1900 was always appreciated!

There is also a nice man made private beach area - with nice sand and cabanas covering some of the pairs of sun beds - very quiet also. You can also sit under the trees and watch the ocean if you want.

Staff are always willing to please - again nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast had a variety of different dishes, both eastern (Sui Mai for example) and traditional western.

We stayed in Rest Spirit room - nice, large and comfortable - with positively the best shower I have used.

Location is a little off the beaten track. A trip in Hua Hin and its nightlife is around 10 mins by either shuttle bus (complimentary but not free....) or taxi.

If you want a real rest stay here!!

Rest Detail Hotel

Location:
It is a beach front place. In general, I find beaches in Hua Hin are nothing compared to those in Phuket or Samui. The water is murky. This hotel is not too close to the night market or other interesting places. Most guests seem to have their own car. I thought I had seen some hotel’s bikes and I assume that they are for guests to use.

Room:
Bathroom is functional, clean, and has plenty of toiletries. There are three water jets/heads in the shower, a great feature. Bed is comfortable but not the best and there are four pillows. Sheets are white. There is also a day bed. The whole place looks pretty chic, a bit of shabby chic. The room is mostly white except for a few things with a dash of color such as a chair. They lend out Ipod loaded with music as there is an Ipod dock in the room. I am not sure how many rooms there are in this hotel but it feels pretty intimate.

Common areas:
The lobby has a nice, open, and airy feel to it. There are few computers/internet stations for guests to use. There are magazines/books as well. Pool is quite large. Lounge chairs are comfy.

Service:
Excellent. Upon checking in, a porter took our bags to the room. They also gave us two souvenir bracelets. There was a welcome letter and fruit plate. We had breakfast every morning and it were great. There were Thai/Asian selections plus Western standard fare (bacon, bean, ham). I absolutely like the fruit and fresh fruit juices at breakfast. The service was very gracious and attentive and yet not stiff and fake like some other places I have been to. Could not fault them in any way. For down-turn service, they offered Thai sweets.

We also had dinner there one night. The food was pretty good in general except for the pasta. It tasted as though it just came out of a fridge. It was hard but not al dente type of “hard.” We had our own wine and no corkage fee.

We had a great time at a lovely hotel where nothing was too much trouble, where the staff were so friendly and where all the little touches enhanced our stay.
From the welcome drink and cold towels during a relaxed check-in to being shown to a lovely room and throughout our two week stay, this is a hotel that delivers on its promise of being a haven away from the pressures of modern life.
Upside - the rooms are lovely - we had one without a jacuzzi but it was big, well furnished and had a huge balcony. Each room has an ipod dock and they will lend you an ipod free of charge with music preloaded. Fantastic shower, lovely toiletries, and a delivery of fruit and home-made sweets every day. Wide range of DVDs to borrow - again free of charge.
The hotel has free wi-fi access and also provides 2 PCs to check email and find out the weather at home. The pool area is lovely although on one side you are exposed to the sun all day which is where the Danes and the Germans baked all day whilst the Brits preferred the shadier side.
Breakfast is excellent - lots of choice and the poached eggs with salmon were a particular favourite. Otherwise, the food is good but obviously pricey compared to eating out.
There is a spa but we didin't try it.
Downsides - very few other than the fact there is no beach at the hotel and a slight gripe at having to pay for the shuttle bus into Hua Hin. The other thing the hotel lacks is a bar where you can go for a drink at the end of the evening and if you're looking for a party every night, this isn't the hotel for you.

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel 2 weeks back.

Hotel has large pool and 2 restaurants but lunch and dinner is served in one restaurant only. Breakfast is quite OK.

I stayed on 4th floor of the hotel in Rest Horizon hotel that has lovely well furnished room, bath and big balcony that has lovely pool with jaccuzi.

Best thing is that you get clear ocean view from bed, balcony and pool. Fascinating to enjoy jaccuuzi and have clear ocean view.

Though I reckon view from 2nd or 3rd floor may not be as good due to trees.

Hotel is located about 3 kms from city center and hotel offers shuttle at 50 baht per pax. Private taxi costs 150 baht per trip.

Travelers preferring great ocean view can prefer this hotel and i feel view is better than most hotels incl Asara and Hilton but food is of very limited choice. Only one restaurant that offers total 17 multy cuisine dishes so you tend to get bored with the food. Ocean water hits the walls of the hotel so no sand around.

Hua hin has nice restaurants near city center very close to Hilton.

All in all good hotel for sea view ( perhaps the best in Hua Hin ) but food menu ( such expensive hotel should operate one multi cuisine and one full thai menu restaurant ), transportation ( shuttle should be free though it is inexpensive compared to cost of stay or trip )

Cost of room about 8000 baht per night with breakfast that includes 750 baht per night vouchers free for use on any facility.

I love this place! it has the the feeling of being in someone's very posh summer home.. Its so cozy and intimate, but its got class. Design wise, love it! Contemporary with a tiny tiny hint of shabby chic which I love. And its not expensive. The toiletries used are quite nice too, I wish I bought some at their souvenir store. High level of cleanliness, well trained staff. It has the same vibe/ service that you would expect from a 5star property.

The nice thing about is their attention to detail.. They have an i pod dock in the room, and lend you the ipod itself, if you didnt bring one, and its pre loaded with songs. I cant seem to remember all the other details, but anyway, when youre there, you wont be sorry. :P

Very nice place to spend weekend, have a massage, eat good seafood, take in some sun, if you live in Thailand. If you love the beach though, beaches in Hua Hin arent really the best...

Hotel is lovely! We had a standard room and were really impressed; huge bed and loads of space. They deliver sweet treats to your room every night which is a nice touch. Staff are very attentive; my husband had an ear infection during our stay and the staff telephoned the local clinic and then drove us there and back (no charge). The breakfast selection is excellent; we ate in the restaurant most lunch times and had a couple of dinners, the food and service were excellent!
Town centre is a 5 minute drive away, the night market is a must and the outdoor retaurants there are excellent and so cheap

This is the most relaxing place we have been to holiday.
It was nice away from noice and big roads, so you could just sit back and relax.
We had a Rest Horizon room with our own jacuzzi on the terrasse, and it was nice to just go in and look over the sea.
The beach is not nice here, but if you want white sand beaches dont go to Hua Hin.
The hotel breakfeast was very nice, but in the evenings the menu to choose from was not that big. But everything we got was very nice.
We recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to go away from a busy work, or just need to relax and get all stress away.
