“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is the cheapest pool villa in the area. Like others have mentioned, the smallest villa has 2 bedroom with one living area and kitchen. The resort was quiet even during the New Year. The main pool is nice but not enough towels and beds. The private pool is lovely but it needs daily cleaning. The staffs are friendly. Overall, it's good for a big family.

The resort was in the back of Stamford university. So, if you drive there, just follow the Stamford sign and drive through the school, exit the blue gate and turn left.

A great palce to chill with your lover.the resort is far from the beach in middle of a farm.

Things i liked -

1. Away from the main city but connect to the main market through a shuttle service.
2.The Villas are huge and we were in a 2 bedroom villa - the ac in 1 bedroom dint seem to cool too well.
3.each villa has its own plunge pool with is great fun.
4.the kitchenette was well equipped and had a induction system.
The staff is very friendly specially the chef
5.the main pool is simply great and clean.

Thinks i dint like -
1.Poor Housekeeping
2.Poor quality of toiletries - please carry your own
3.Torn worn out towels
4.very bad breakfast - no variety of fruits, juices , etc
5.No telephone in rooms to call reception or housekeeping
6. No mosquito machines
7. the main guy at the reception - has an attitude and keeps smoking infact he asked us to buy him redbull from the 7/11.

Room Tip: all villas seemed the same

My friends were looking for a high quality massage somewhere between the top priced hotel spas and the cheapies on the beach and on crowded streets.
We booked this spa online. The Residence sent a shuttle van to pick us up. I had a traditional Thai massage, no oils and boy did this girl know her stuff! Not for wimps! My friends both had deep tissue massages and were very impressed. We also booked manicures and pedicures. The rooms were private, the service good. Definitely recommend. When we finished we wandered over to the bar for cocktails before being driven home again.
This place is a keeper for massage. middle of the road prices, (don't forget to tip the girls) and don't be afraid to ask them to massage more softly if you feel uncomfortable!

Not the typical hotels that are aplenty lining parallel to the shoreline of Cha-Am and Hua Hin, but more like a twenty over units of two and three bedroom villas cuddled up in the middle of scorched farmlands within the vicinity of a few also scorched hills. Getting there requires some intuitive navigation skills and some phone calls to the resort as cows passed by your car on the local roads that you will be lost.

The Residence Hua Hin, is located next to Stamford University. However, unlike the university that could afford a large piece of land thus the strategic entrance from the main Phet Kasem road, entry to The Residence Hua Hin is from Hua Hin Soi 6, pass a railway track and through many villages inland that requires some driving. The villas are single storey bungalows toned orange brown enclosed by bamboo fence that's too low for any privacy comfort. So one could not skinny dip into the small Jacuzzi so inviting out front of the every villa on a hot day's night. The villas are all very spacious, a few of which have three bedrooms with the rest made up of two bedrooms units. In fact it is so spacious that if your friends brings along their own sleeping bags, you could sleep well over ten just in the living room. However, the air conditioners have aged and took a long time to cool the room down. So for the first half of the night, your slumber will be an episode between waking up to scratch unknown number of mosquitoes bites and peaceful hibernation before one can finally snuggle fully into the so thick comforter shielding one from the abundant pest.

The Kings sized bed, is actually made up of two rather hard mattress. You gotta roll over the hard ridge in your sleep on the bed I think intended for people with back problems. It's too rigid for my preference and I truly did not enjoy my sleep at all, waking up a dozen time looking at the clock hoping morning will come soon. Breakfast, I wished they could have done better for the price that one has to pay. Limited in selection and equivalent to two star motel quality which I frequent on my upcountry work trips. Dinner, again a disappointment on my end. Fish & Chips - Cod coated in delicious batter served with French Fires and salad the menu stated. And so I ordered with high expectations on the taste of a true English Fish & Chips reminiscence of my childhood which I had so many. Now the batter was good, but the Cod is not a Cod. It was some fishy tasting thin slab of local shallow water fish. So, don't ever ever ever ever order the Fish & Chips here. It ain't chip either.

Showering in the villas expect some surprises. Well there's a huge bathtub one could onzen in the bathroom and that's a plus point. Water pleasantly heated will be available and the flow is strong so no minus points on that too. Draining the tub, my bathroom was flooded from the water oozing out from the other drainage hole driving up scores of black scum accompanied by an appalling smell which infiltrated into the bedroom. No more onzen for me after my first try. Maintenance on the clogged drainage had been neglected in the villas and I wonder if they knew. Big minus point.

If it is a quite place one is looking for to be with a number of friends to get away from Bangkok, then The Residence Hua Hin is one good idea. Since it is spacious and large, taking on a three bedroom unit will allows for six or more guest. Chilling out to wine and snacks chattering the night away. Holding that cold beer in the Jacuzzi amongst laughter of friends soaking. Away from the packed beach pubs and noisy hotels lining the shoreline, this will be the place for you. However, if you come along with great expectation on the F&B, the quality of sleep matching the price, then one will truly be disappointed. Impression neutral I have, but nevertheless over these New Year holidays, rested my mind somehow I had.

We arrived with my husband on Hua Hin residence after being picked up in Bangok AIrport by the Hua Hin residence pick up service.The vehicle that they sent was in perfect condition and the driver expremely polite and spoke perfect english.The drive was very smooth and pleasant and since it was out first time going to Hua Hin for us the drive was very enjoyable.

The Hua Hin Residence is in a quiet spot close to some beautiful hills and the amazing Palm hills golf course. The place is serene and peacefull full of green and vegetation. We rented one of the two bedroum villas which was vary spacious with two huge on suite bedrooms. The living com kichen area was also very spacious and nicely decorated with wide screen tv and dvd equipment.

Our outdoor yard with the plunge pool was also amazing ,not to mention the common huge swimming pool with three palm trees inside.

The staff were very friendly and always smiling.The villa was cleaned daily for us.

Dont miss trying the amazing small estaurant at the residence and try especially the home made spring rolls,chicken and cashew nuts and the burger!!!

Dont leave before you try the spa and the 2hr massage treatment from heaven.

The residence also offers free shuttle to Hua Hin center (less than 10min drive)several times a day plus you can have free bikes to go for a ride around the countryside.

Room Tip: All villas had privacy

Stayed here from Sep11th- 13th'11. We booked 2 villas with 2 bedrooms through Golf of Siam package. The villas were tastefully decorated size of approximately 120 sq m, sufficient amenities, a simple kitchenette with dining and comfortable living area. Rooms had split unit air conditioning unit, dining area had a 2hp air conditioning unit, therefore the whole villa was kept cool. Had a nice little jacuzzi in each villa, housekeeping staff kept the villa well maintained. Beds were comfortable, only setback was the pillows were too high and soft (synthetic filled). Tropical countries are always prone to mosquitoes, best way is having scented oil fragrant like lemongrass or eucalyptus applied on tissues in room or toilets preventing mosquitoes in the evening. Windows should be kept closed during dusk.
Swimming pool was well landscaped, lots of palm trees to keep swimmers in shade. A nice and small restaurant with simple menu to whet our appetite after a tiring day. Breakfast was a la carte, basic but sufficient to fill our stomachs as most guests here will tee off early morning.
The staff of The Residence were all friendly and helpful, especially the kitchen staff were very accommodating, assisting us to heat up our food bought from a Muslim stall in town.
Location of The Residence is off the town area, arrangement with front desk for shuttle van can easily be arranged for send off & pick up from town which is about 20 minutes away.
We had always preferred staying in resorts away from crowd. However accessibility of courtesy transport available will not pose any difficulties. This place is very suitable for a quiet & peaceful holiday, yet you can stroll Hua Hin town by courtesy shuttle van.
Hua Hin has some real good and reputable golf courses, it was certainly an experience for golfers to enjoy their tee off the beautiful green carpet grass, an expression they can only feel.
Tip for Muslim travelers - inside Chat Chai market there's a simple and basic stall Muslim food stall opened from morning till 4 pm. Lynn and Arif served the tastiest seafood fried rice that I had tried. You may buy seafood ( clams, prawns, fish ) from the market and they will cook for you for a nominal fee. It is best to take-away and enjoy the meal at the comfy villa. Try the Mango and sticky rice is available in this wet market, it's really tasty and addictive.
The ever helpful staff and friendliness shown, will keep us returning here @The Residence Hua Hin.

Organised by a good friend of mine as he is a regular visitor to this property.

Location
A bit far from the town centre and the beach. A 18 hole golf course, a university campus next to the property.

Room
Spacious, Clean and the bed is good. Make sure all windows are closed when sleeping. Mosquito is a problem here. My brother and I had more than 10 bites in 1 night!

Each villa has its own spa - very relaxing.

Internet
The wireless did not work during the 2 night stay. No staff has a clue on how to make it work.

Breakfast
Choice of Western or Thai. A buffet breakfast is served if more guests staying in the property.

Amenities
Gym equipment looks new (didn't try). Cycling nearby is a treat. The villa can lend you a bike for free but I don't think they have many.
