If you are looking for heaven on earth, this is the place to be! Why?
This hotel has some 300 rooms. During the week it is a very quiet holiday hotel, with no need for the towel race to the swimming pools 6AM! In fact most guests will be attending conferences. During the weekend the hotel usually will be fully booked with Asian guests.
The hotel is situated outside of Hua Hin. You will allways need transportation to leave the hotel. The hotel offers a shuttle for 50thb 1 way. In Hua Hin you will find plenty of taxi's to get you back, or you can return with the hotel shuttle.
In your room fresh fruit will be served daily. Wifi is free nowadays. Breakfast is lavish. Newspapers in english are available in the breakfast area and in the lobby lounge. You will always have 2 bottles of drinking water in your room, and 1 more will be left behind by the turn down service. Furter around 11Am and 2 Pm bottles of water will be handed out o guests at the swimmingpools. At 2 Pm there will also be an activity, such as ice carving, thai cooking etc. For children there will be different activities, such as kiting and playing with balloons.
Friday the hotel offers a Thai buffet (with show), Saturday sea food bbq buffet, Monday carvery buffet and Wednesday Italian buffet. Besides a la carte some restaurants have set menu's.
The hotel has a spa which is worth a visit. There are also stables for riding horses, a gym, there is a very affordable pool side massage. Steven Segals hair dresser Khun Yim has his salon at the Dusit Thani and I can go on and on and on. Just look at there website!
We visit Dusit for 10+ years. When our children were young we at first were afraid they might get or feel lost in such an immense place. But as most of the guest are there for business reasons the staff is always ready to keep an eye on their young guests. Even play with them, if they can find an opportunity. Up till today lasting friendships have developped!
Do we not have any negative experiences? Well, for instance, the ac was not working as it should. In this hotel something like this means you need to pick up the phone and maintenance will be with you in no time and usually they only need to clean the filter, or some minor thing like that. And things like this can happen, right! In other words what can be experienced as a problem in another hotel in Dusit Thani is just a little hick up or challenge to the hotel. No more, no less.
So, if you are looking for some quiet and calm, even with young children, no matter if you are a family or a business traveler, this place is to be recommended. The only reason I would not recommend it would be that I would like to keep it a bit secret....
