My first visit to Hua Hin did not start off well. We were travelling with my elderly 85 year old mother and arrived in Bangkok airport at 5 pm. There were no representative and car from the hotel to meet us at the pick up point. We had to get assistance from the information counter at the airport to call the hotel and they will only do it from our mobile phone (this call costs me $30+).
After about an hour, we were on our way to Hua Hin and got there just after 11 pm. Hungry and tired, we found out that, everything was closed.
However, the receptionist was helpful and managed to get hold of their tuk-tuk driver who was still around to take us to a mini mart to buy some food.
Here come the good part. We got a full story in English regarding the problem about our airport meet and pick up.
The next morning, at the reception, the assistant manager, Bee, apologized about the delay at the airport. Apparently, the car broke down and they had to sent another replacement car.
The GM Bruce Kalili also came over to apologized and let us know that he will do his best to make our stay a pleasurable one. To make it up to us, a bottle of wine and a platter of deserts was sent up to our room in the afternoon.
Bee, the assistant manager is a very helpful and courteous lady. She sat down with me and arranged a car and tour for us during our stay in Hua Hin and transfer back to our Bangkok hotel.
Night before we left, there was a note from her saying goodbye as she was not available to do so in person. This was a very nice gesture.
To sum it all, we had a great stay and were really happy with the effort the GM and staff at all levels take to please their guests.
The hotel is right on the beach and being a long holiday weekend, the beach, which is also public, was crowded with tourists and locals.
There are restaurants all over the beach and vendors selling drinks and snacks.
Near the hotels is a 24 hour mini mart.
The hotel rooms & grounds are lovely and well kept, the orchids along the pathways are our favorite sights.
Our rooms are very spacious with a balcony overlooking the pool.
Breakfast was good with omelette station and enough selections to cater to different palates.
