“From Riches to Rags”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Based on my first visit to Aka (both the properties) in 2009, we decided to visit again this year with our family. We were there in the month of October, 2012 and as soon as we entered the resort, the same feel the same vibe was missing. There was only one Receptionist it take phone calls and to assist guests and she took ages to attend to us.
After we checked in, the Two Bed Room Villa looked quite worn down and badly maintained. The biggest disappointment was the food. There was almost nothing to eat for us in the Veg Options and the staff did nothing to satisfy our basic Veg Food Needs. The Breakfast was an even bigger disaster. They didn't even have Cheese or Baked Beans on the buffet although on the second day the chef finally made some veg options for us, but it was too late.
We really do not recommend this place anymore simply because it lacks the feel and freshness which it had earlier. Vegetarian's, please think of other options....

Room Tip: Try taking a room close to the Spa, as its closer to the Main Area and you have the option of either...

Helps if you've some experience of Asia, you need to be aware that there are going to be mossies and deal with it. The hotel is not exactly close to anywhere so if you have not got transport you are pretty much locked in. Friendly reception, pool villa clean but, as others have noted, maintenance doesn't sit high on their list. Broken chairs, wooden decking rotten in places. Nevertheless, you could shut yourself in and call for room service and have a perfect private weekend. Weirdly 50% of the wall sockets broken, which didn't cause a problem but was odd. Four poster bed with nets was nice and we slept well. Big outdoor drencher shower was a treat.

Food, room service or cafe, is good but not special and not cheap. Seafood BBQ on Saturday night was the only seafood BBQ I've ever been to with no fish. Only thing close to piscatorial was a few overcooked prawns. Everything else, meat, pasta, salads was ok, but you wouldn't go to Aka for the food.

Room Tip: Didn't get to check everything out, but pool villa is the way to go if you are looking for priva...

The overall impression at AKA Resort Hua Hin is very nice. The staff are friendly and well-trained. The price is reasonable, especially when you come in a group and share it among your friends. The food here was okay, but he atmosphere was very good. The room was clean, but private pool is my most favorite! LOL Really, anyone shouldn't miss a place like this. Chilling and relaxing experience at affordable price and good services!! I'll definitely come back!
