“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

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.........

Having read other reviews about this hotel, I was a little apprehensive of what to expect.
On arrival after 2 hr taxi from Bangok, cold towel and welcome drink. Shown to my room which was in the Palm garden on the 1st floor.Big room, great beds air conditioning excellent. I have nothing t
bad to say and those people who critise the breakfast, or any other restaurant then they should simply spend their time away. This is not my first visit to Thailand but my first to Hua Hin, and I will come back here. Even the 50 baht that somebother guest moaned about, it is still cheaper than the 150 or 200 for the taxi to get to town. I started walking not knowing the distance but after abkut r15 min caught a motobike taxi for 100 baht.Pool and poolbar great.

Room Tip: Palm Garden on 1st floor?

We stayed in premium garden view room. Checkin and Check-out was very quick and smooth. On arrival they provided very refreshing drink (butterfly pea drink) and cold towel.
Resort was very big and gardens were kept very well maintained. Room was little bit small and very old furniture. View from the room is very nice. We had ground floor room so we were able to use front and back door which is very convenient. Lots of chairs are provided at the pool and beach. Chairs are always available at beach and pool. Drinks were reasonable at pool side bar. Don’t miss out on happy hour deals between 4-5pm at poolside bar and 9-10pm at Sala Siam. They also have live music at Sala Siam. We had cocktails at both bars and cocktails were very good.
Breakfast buffet was very good, wide choices for eastern and western dishes and very fresh. Location of the breakfast buffet (Issara Café) was also very nice located next to beautiful pond full with lotus. However I spotted black cat (pet cat) in the dining area (pet animal should not be permissible in food preparation and dining area). Black cat was walking on deck, under tables and throughout the buffet.
All three restaurants are well overpricing. They had Thursday night Thai dinner buffet for 1000 B (plus 17% tax) per person. We had a look around 8pm and only one table was occupied. At night time resort is not very happening place because everyone goes to town for dinner. Price of dinner at Anantara is not justifiable. You can get nice Seafood Dinner Buffet at Centara Garden for 1200B which is cheaper and a lot nicer than other option available at Anantara.
Anantara resort is like a small topical island. Property is full of mosquitos and Anantara charge you 320 B for use of mosquitos repellent, this is ridiculous management of this resort know that they have problem with mosquitos and they still not include this dirt cheap mosquitos repellent.
Location of the resort is not very convenient; it is located 5-6 kms away from the town centre. Resort provides shuttle mini bus/van service every hour for 100 B (plus 17 % tax) per person for return trip which I found ridiculous. I took shuttle bus service on the first day, on 2nd day I took tuk tuk (shuttle van) which cost me 10B from resort to the night market.

Room Tip: Get a deal with breakfast buffet and bring electric mosquitos repellent or coil

We chose Anantara in Hua Hinn to celebrate our parents golden jubilee this year in june. The journey from the Bangkok airport is quite a distance...as the resort is quite far from the main town. However the ancient and warm ambience as you entered the resort took all the fatigue away! The lagoon rooms were breathtaking....the breakfast buffet was lavish and the menu at all the three retsraunts was amazing...though a bit over prized at times. What makes it an unforgettable holiday was its spa!! One of the most luxurious and magical ones that i have visited. The therapists were cordial and warm and explained each service really well but the whole setting and atmosphere transferred you to a land in heaven! Kudos to the management and staff for maintaining such a beautiful landscape and especially for the beach bonfire buffet staff which mesmerized each one the guests . Personal attention by the housekeeping staff as to keep a goodnight token for each kid with theirnames got them brownie points and the beautiful arrangement they did to celebrate our memorable occassion would never be forgotten. Thankyou

Room Tip: Choose this resort if you our a nature lover and want to spend some quite time away from the hustle...

Very good resort with fantastic staff. The Italian restaurant was awesome! Very effective roomservice. The SPA was very far from the massageplaces you see in Pattaya and Phuket :-) At Anantara they are very serious about their treatments. The resort is located a little too far from the city center, but they offered shuttles (for a reasonable fare) to and from the hotspots.
Altogether a very good place. I recommend it!

FOur fun filled days at the Elephant Polo event. Check in went well, except for a minor glitch involving shirts that the front desk fixed quickly. The room overlooking of the ocean was wonderful. Restaurants were great, the grounds lush and very tropical.

All that the hotel advertised such as meals, spa and shuttles to the event was wonderful.

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
