“Putahracsa Hua Hin hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Travelled from Bangkok to this hotel via taxi booked before we came cost £56 - (much cheaper to book when in Thailand, cost back £30 booked in town)

First impressions good met by the hotel manager, staff good and welcoming - was offered a drink and cold towel. Room was fairly near to the main reception first floor overlooking the pool on the opposite side of the road.

Room was large, bed huge and comfy - space for clothes none! no draws - big cabinet with tea and coffe in and a fridge that wasnt cold. a small wardrobe with 5 hangers, had to request more hangers - bathroom separate from sink, sink was stained - bathroom was worn and cracked and could do with a makeover, mould in corners of the bath - shower run cold and had to run for 10 mins (if busy time) to warm up thern would go very hot to cold! - air conditioning noisy and too cold. - lack of tea and coffee, no milk and had to ask a few times, towels were thread bare - always lacking hand towels. Maid was good and efficient all staff were pleasent and chatty.

Drinks over expensive especially with the added 7% tax and servcie charge of 10% which when tipping meant a very expensive bill - we only drank at the hotel and one room service and paid around £148.00.

Beware the glass scales - my other half kicked these coming out of the bathroom and they shattered - we was charged £36!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well......could have brought these in england and shipped back for less money a bit of a rip off, plus the fact they didnt work anyway, why would anyone want to weigh themselves on holiday - maybe should forget the scales & worry about better storage, more coffee, tea and milk in the rooms and towels that are not thread bare!! and revamp the worn bathrooms.

The breakfast was ample but not exciting the seating strange, too low inside and more like a coffee house, and plastic chairs outside and marble benches (which they sometimes forgot to put seats out) restaurant staff pleasent and chatty - tea and coffee takes ages to come and usually finished brekkie before it arrived self service would be more efficient. - beach bar small but nice, restaurant again nice but overally expensive compared to restaurants next to and down the road. Sun beds excellent and comfy with a fantastic view, with an infinity pool behind.


All in all a great boutique hotel, that lacks finish...but has excellent staff with limited facilities (no gym!!!! which was a bit of a blow) just out of town and easy to walk to and from - the hotel have a shuttle tut tut to take yout o your destination and 100 bht was the return rate.

Visit the elephant village 10 mins from the hotel - man outside in tut tut will take you there and back for 200bht and wait whilst you ride the elephants - cost £20 each for an hour. much better than going on long trips (as we did to bridge over kwai, river market and tiger temple, too much in one day whilst in Bangkok 6am - 7pm didnt leave bangkok until 9am left hotel at 6am after picking up people and traffic)

visit the bars and restaurants in Hua hin loads to choose from, see trip advisor for recommendations - fish restaurant over looking pier - in best of bangkok - great value loads of food great sea food, nice location. Find capones and say hello to jang! the staff are really good here and the drinks top notch, with clean toilets and a pool table at the back, great place to people watch.

by the sounds of it the villas were better with jacuzzi with bose sound systems non of that in our room. we only had a silk and whatsit room, we paid £1,300 for BB for 2 rooms for 9 days
not the cheapest especially in Thailand!!!!

Good hotel, clean with exceptional staff.......no entertainment but nice retreat...good beach location, great sunbeds, no gym (need to get a gym) bit overpriced for the room as large but not exceptional. 5 star in some ares. Spa over expensive better value down the road - would have used if not so expensive looked empty all the time, if prices were lowered in restaurants & spa I would expect they would be used more especially in low season.

Room Tip: Villa with pool, but very expensive - near to reception overlooking pool good location

This hotel is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of all that is going on in the markets and night life of Hua Hin. The villa units are excellent, lots of privacy, very quiet all the amenities anyone would need.
The rooms are very clean, bug free(outstandig) and well stocked with free coffee and water.
The staff is very courteous and will jump at the opportunity to assist in any way possible.
The free shuttle service to the clock tower is most handy and available to use as needed.

Room Tip: If you can , try to stay on the beach side, but OK on the other side. Also if you get to tour temple...

we booked pool villa and got upgrade to the room with jacuzzi and steam. it was a very private hitel due to number of room available, i also like the library and theres free wifi. eqipments in the room are top-notch. nothing broken, the sound system in our room was super cool. on to the dark side, service was a bit annoying, three person in our group, two slippers in room. waiting for hotel shop assistant for almost an hour. she was gone somewhere and nobody told her we were waiting (we asked the bellboy, receptionists and passing-by hotel staff, everyone said they would check for us. guess they were just lazy and said them things to get us off their back). we ended up meet with the shop assistance becuase she was in the seminar and came out to the washroom!!! imagine how long we would have to wait if she whadnt gone out! before we leave, we were using toilet and the receptionist came in and throw the mushy blacky looking water into the sink, and it stain the white sink! cant she do that at the back? not the guest wc? sigh! despite all the weirdness of it my mom still want to go back lol the food was nice and bakery was awesome too

Dear Valued Guests,

thank you for you for giving us your comments on trip advisor.

We regret that you had to wait for the shop attendant.

The guest’s comfort is of utmost importance to us and even though we always strive for perfection, invest in educating, training, and motivating our team members it occasionally happens that something escapes our control.

We are looking forward welcoming you back to show that these incidents were an exception and not the norm.

We have just returned from spending 8 days at the Oceanside section of the Putahracsa, lovely little spotlessly clean resort. Rooms were fantastic with good TV, Bose stereo, expresso coffee maker, fridge and safe. We had two rooms, one with private pool and jacuzzi and the other with private jacuzzi, and had a fabulous time.
All the staff were very friendly, efficient and polite, especially Toy and Kwang at reception. They helped us so much.
The food and drinks are 1st class.
We would definately return to the Putahracsa and stay in the Oceanside section of the resort again, as half of the resort is situated across a main road, although not a busy road, they do have a man to stop the traffic for you if you wish to cross the road to visit the other pool, spa and breakfast room. The pools are very clean and good sized, The beach is a short walk away and lovely fine white sand, the only drawback here is there being nobody to clean any plastic bags or empty bottles that get left on the beach at the end of the day.
Generally though, a lovely quiet idilic holiday resort thats definately worth a visit.

Room Tip: The Oceanside rooms with a pool or jacuzzi are very classy, and worth the extra money.

We would also like to thank you for your appreciation of the service provided by Kwang and Toy our Villa Hosts . They will be able to view your comments and I am sure it will serve as a great encouragement for them to keep up their good work.

The first thing our two pool boys usually do is clean the beach in the moring at 6 AM, thank you for the comments maybe we have to do "two rounds".

My wife and I just spent 12 glorious nights / 13 days and already planning our next visit. We stayed in a Villa unit and each day was spent on the Oceanside lying by the pool or walking along the beach. The 'in house' bakery at Putahracsa is a real bonus having spent every afternoon in the cafe having a coffee and danish.
The Villa unit is worth the extra charge especially on a long stay such as ours as we had space to relax in our room.
The resorts location is perfect, with an easy walk to the night markets or to restaurants.
As for the staff, they are all so keen to help with the minutest query.
Looking forward to our return visit.

We stayed in pool villa at the Oceanside. The room is well design, large and quiet.
The pool was large then we thought with a Jacuzzi and outdoor shower.
The location is the best. We can walk to the night market and that street are contain a lot of good street foods and restaurant and not too far for the fish market.
Service is also good here.

Room Tip: Ocean side is good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Putahracsa. It is well situated and the free tuk tuk into town is welcome on a hot afternoon! We stayed in a silksand room which is not oceanside but has the bigger pool. The room was modern, clean and spacious. The hotel provided welcome fruit on arrival, a nice touch and the coffee was proper filter coffee with free OHT in the fridge. Hurrah! It was a welcome break from coffeemate.

Breakfast was lovely...served between 7-11am... And a choice of sitting inside or out. It is buffet in style but the kitchen are happy to make any type of egg on request. They also do snacks from this restaurant ( sala monsoon) throughout the day. We had nice peach smoothies and a chicken sandwich one afternoon.

We cannot fault the service at this hotel. You are always greeted with a 'sawadee' and smile by every member of staff and they are prompt in response to any queries you have. We noticed that only one of our iPads had access to the wi-fi with the password we were given, but on speaking to reception they quickly gave us a second username so that we both could have Internet access.

We had evening meals at the hotel on our first and last night. The first night was 'mother's day' and they were happy to accommodate us without a reservation. Initially the drinks were a little slow.. However, service improved once we were seated at our table Oceanside. The food was delicious... Prices reflected a five star hotel, although it was a little irritating that they did not include service and tax in the prices on the menu. Would it not be easier for the customer to just provide them with a 'this is the price' menu? The menu at their sister hotel in Bangkok... Summit windmill golf residence has prices inclusive of tax and service.
We can highly recommend their cocktails and the seabass fillets which had a lovely caper sauce. If you fancy a change for hotel food... Rashnee restaurant, next door, do excellent Thai cuisine and at very reasonable prices with smiling service...

On our second day we paid for a private tour to kanchanaburi to see the death railway and the bridge. This tour is available with the hotel on a friday at a fairly reasonable rate or 2600 baht... However, we paid 7800 baht for a prvate tour for two people. This was because we were
Leaving on a weds. Unfortunately, Apart from the private mini van and guide we cannot see where our money went... The death railway ticket cost 150 baht each and the museum cost was minimal, the bridge was free and so was cemetary. Lunch was in quite an unhygienic restaurant and not particularly pleasant... Perhaps the hotel should take time to look at the quality of tours offered.

Housekeeping was good...although some days a little late. One day it was not done until 4.45pm despite putting sign on the door. Nice touches included the daily Bangkok Post newspaper and being able to play our newly bought DVDs on the player in the room. We also really liked Ob Oon, the patisserie next to the hotel and bought some lovely cakes to take with us to Bangkok.

The hotel were extremely helpful when our taxi back to Bangkok fell through and were able to contact a company outside of the hotel to take us for 2500 baht...which was only 500 baht more than our original taxi (FYI avoid www.huahintaxi.com as they do not respond to you)

We will definitely return to Putahracsa...please do not take any of my comments as criticism. If you choose this hotel you will have a great stay. I just want them to be aware how their service could become perfection.... It's very close already! :-)

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are a little more private but try to get a corner room if possible as these are appar...
