This was our first visit to Thailand, we had a fabulous stay. The staff were all excellent and so genuinely helpful.
We had stayed for 2 nights in the Anantara Bangkok and travelled down by taxi- quite a long drive, so we arrived hot and tired to be greeted with cold drinks and towels by a calm and polite receptionist who accompanied us to our beautiful sea view rooms.
The hotel is not central,traveling in to the town cost between 100-150 baht - good fun in a Tuk-Tuk!
Eating in the hotel is expensive, not unusual in my experience, compared to eating in town- we could eat for 4 in town for the price of one in the hotel.
Having said that we did eat in the hotel and the food was very good but as previously mentioned by other travellers lacking in atmosphere due to a lack of customers!
The breakfast choice was excellent,for the first time in my life I had noodles, rice and curry for breakfast! who wants cereals ever again...
The pool area was lovely with free towels- we can also recommend the snack menu for lunch and happy hour cocktails in the pool bar or lazing on the day beds.
My only complaints?- neither the reception area or main restaurant ( where we ate breakfast ) are air conditioned- there are fans, but not quite as cooling as it could be.
Robes , slippers and outdoor pool shoes are provided which is lovely but the robes are quite thick and heavy and the room slippers and outdoor pool shoes had obviously been used by someone else before us and not washed/ cleaned as they still had sand on the bottom of them, ( I have a thing about other people's feet!)
A minor point in which was the most amazing holiday, the Thai people are SO friendly and the Anantara staff were too.
We can't wait to go back.........
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The 187-room Anantara Resort Hua Hin is a distinctive Thai village-style property located on the sunrise coast of the Gulf of Thailand, around 220 kms south of Bangkok. Hidden amidst 14 acres of luxuriantly landscaped gardens and lagoon pools, the picturesque resort enjoys a beachfront location at the quiet end of Hua Hin's long sandy beach for only 5 kms. from Hua Hin town centre. A three-meters high terracotta wall cleverly cocoons the resort from the hustle and bustle of town. As you make your way along the landscaped driveway, a sense of calm descends. The sense of arrival is heightened as you admire a decorative wall adorned with a parade of elephants. A cool breeze drifting in from the beach floats through the open-air Lobby with the strains of a melodic Thai tune lingering. Polished timber floors and Thai-style salas (pavilions) heighten the ambience of an intimate tropical hideaway. ... more less
