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.
