Parking
Combination of street and a car park around the back of the hotel.

Arrival
Receptionist was nice and there was help available with the bags.

Room
View was ok and could see the sea. Some drinks were complimentary and there were tea/coffee making facilities. Room was clean and tidy. It was nice to have a bath but it took ages to fill.

Breakfast
Was held across the road in the restaurant. Traditional Thai breakfast with limited western options.

Food
Dinner- Lovely carbonara and Steak meal.
Lunch- Nice burgers, strangely seasoned but tasted nice.

Pool
Lovely and clean. Plenty of toilets. Sun loungers are well worn and creak loudly when you move but are comfy to sit on.

Sun deck
This is just the roof of the hotel. Booking site showed sun loungers on the sun deck but there weren’t any when we went.

Sea
You can’t get to the sea as there are massive sandbags blocking the way. Also, wouldn’t recommend sitting on the sand due the ants. Not the hotels fault just an issue with the area.

It's not a surprise that this hotel ranks #1! The staff there provides superior service and the facility is immaculate. Make sure you make every effort to eat at the hotel as the food is superb. Eating breakfast there at the buffet is a wonderful way to start the day with many choices of dishes ranging from American to Thai and beyond. Dinner is a must as it is one of the finest around for Thai and seafood. Everything is so fresh and well presented (Some to beautiful to eat). Many of the locals frequent the restaurant for its fine food. One of their chefs specializes in European cuisine and the other in Thai food. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The staff there showed me the hotel suites that were almost completed. Each one was a different theme and a site to see. I hope to stay in each different suite on my future visits. The beach is only 40 meters away and has a very easy beach access. You won't be disappointed staying at this hotel.

I have been fortunate to have travelled to many countries for professional purposes, sometimes for leisure, and stayed in numerous hotels. I have read some of the recent reports on Cera Resort Cha-Am, particularly the detailed comments of Pencroft posted on 4 February 2014. Whilst I agree with much of Pencroft’s comments, of course I'd like to add my own opinions in praise of Cera.

My ideal resort/hotel for leisure is one which is unpretentious, peaceful, not too big, reasonable facilities, a location with some interesting features and easy access to local restaurants etc, comfortable rooms, and (very important) with a friendly staff who are obviously happy (ie. treated well by management), attentive, and helpful. I have stayed twice at Cera (6 days in each of November 2013 and February 2014,) with my Thai travel organiser friend (I don't speak much Thai).

Of course, what suits one person may not suit another. Some reports suggest that Cera is "quirky", and "soulless". I don’t agree. If you want real quirkiness, try Plaern Wan in Hua Hin; if you want real soullessness, try some of the big chain resort/hotels in the area. For me, Cera provides the ideal peaceful environment and location where I can relax, read books, sit poolside in the late afternoon/ evening (not lie in the blazing sun risking skin lesions or melanomas), go for long walks along the sandy beach (when the tide is out) to the fishing boats and local market (where only a few tourists go), stroll 300 metres into the village for a meal at one of the many restaurants (where staff generally remember you, such as at Tom Yum Gung), have a cocktail at the Blue Bell Bar (efficiently managed by May who does the best mojitos), and 7Eleven for snacks etc.

In both visits I stayed in the smaller poolside block of rooms. The first time the room was 3rd floor south facing with balcony; the second time was a ground floor south-facing room with direct access to a personal lawn and 2 loungers, and the sunny pool only 8 metres away. The Cera bedrooms and bathrooms are a good size, everything very clean, comfortable beds and bedding, power shower, separate bath (made by a local ceramics company), good range of TV stations, efficient aircon, armchairs, tea/coffee etc. In fact, everything you would expect of a decent hotel. I think the Cera room price range is very reasonable.

The breakfast certainly had plenty of food variety to satisfy me. If I had wanted or expected a vast range of foods from different countries, and numerous facilities, then I would have stayed in a far more expensive hotel. Cera's good-sized pool, outdoor table tennis, computer with internet access (many hotels now do not provide that as it is assumed everyone has a smartphone), with its seaside location and nearby village, happy staff, comfortable room, were just what I required for refreshing rest and relaxation away from the noise, traffic, and bustle of London.

Each day I particularly appreciated the genuine and warm smiles of greeting, and chats (in English) with elegant k. Boonream and her charming team on Reception Front Office (Duangjai, Natara, Bussaba)! Thank you k. Boonream and your cheerful team.

For all the above reasons I am happy to give Cera Resort Cha-Am top marks for the 6 relevant rating categories. I am certainly looking forward to returning to Cera Resort.

For those who don't like reading a whole report, this is a decent hotel, very clean and good for a stay in this great area of Ban Kwai village between Cha Am and Hua Hin. This isn't an area for night life, but it is a great area if you want the charm of real Thailand and some great eating places and small bars. For those who like to know a little more, read on.

This is a fairly new boutiquey type hotel which, as regular visitors to this area, we came across last year and liked the look of it so decided to give it a try this year. I toyed between three and four stars for the rating, but I have opted for four as for us it served its purpose. It has a quirky feel with colourful ceramics around the pool and in the rooms. A lot of the doors don't fit properly, but it all adds to the quirky nature of the place. There are two main buildings for accommodation and reception is at the bottom of the smaller block. All the staff seemed pleasant enough and were polite and efficient.

The pool area is very nice and with a good sized pool for the number of rooms with a shallower pool attached presumably for youngsters, although I'm pleased to say there were very few there whilst we were there ( yes, I'm getting old). The deepest it gets in the main pool is 1.6 meters and starts at 1.3 meters. It was rather breathtaking getting in, but once in, it was quite pleasant. One word of caution though, the steps into the pool are very steep and there is no grab rail, I saw several elderly (more elderly than me!) people go to get in and ended up virtually falling in the first time they entered the pool, I really think it's something the hotel should address before someone gets seriously injured. The gardens were well maintained and the sun beds were a very good size, more like a single bed. Towels are provided. The hotel is well geared for disabled customers and there is a large disabled toilet poolside. There is the usual towels on the sun beds syndrome to a small extent, but it never proved a major problem.

There is something of a pool bar which doubles as the main bar and evening dining takes place around this area. The bar area is open plan, so if the wind is blowing, it can get somewhat breezy within, but sometimes on very hot days that was quite nice. Breakfast is taken in the restaurant just over the road and again this building is open plan and at the time of our visit, the strong breeze made it quite cool at breakfast time.

For me, breakfast wasn't the best I've ever had on holiday. In fairness, we don't normally bother eating in hotels in Thailand whether it be breakfast or other meals and normally when staying in this area we go into the village to Harry's bar (see separate review) where you get an excellent breakfast for just 150 baht (£3) so despite having paid for breakfast at the hotel, this is what we did most days. The hotel breakfast had just cornflakes, no muesli or chocolate pops which is the norm in Thailand it seems and on the occasions I did have something hot, the eggs were always underdone with whites around the yolk not cooked, which always puts me off. No bacon, but you could have chicken in oyster sauce or salad, the fruit and strawberry yogurt were very nice. I note from other reviews that some felt the breakfast was good, so perhaps it's just me having been spoilt at Harry's bar!

The hotel has its own bakery on site so you can buy fresh bread and cakes each day, even at a weekend. There is no gym, but they do have a table tennis table and as it is pretty flat around this area, so I would go for a run most days.

There is no entertainment at this hotel (not a problem to us) but what I did find odd, was that the bar never seemed to stay open after people had finished dining, We came back to the hotel early one evening for a drink, about 9.30 only to find the place in darkness. I guess they accept that most customers will go to the village (2 mins walk) for their evenings entertainment and drinking. The walk to the village is along a poorly lit road, but is not a problem at all and we never felt unsafe and it takes no more than 2 minutes. If I have one criticism of the village and area in general, it is the number of dogs around, although in fairness, none ever bothered us and most just liked to sleep, often in the middle of the road!

Our room was on the fourth (top) floor of the smaller block and from our balcony we had a partial view of the pool area and view of the sea although partially obscured. It was a good sized room with a massive bed, two three quarter beds together so I guess they could have been split. One side of the bed had a quirky table with a lamp but my side had nothing and I did miss having somewhere to put my book or iPad after use late at night, but perhaps that's me being finicky. A large screen tv and a small fridge were included as well as a good sized safe, although that was within the open wardrobe just off the floor so with my bad back and poor eyesight, it wasn't that easy to use, but it did have a light inside which helped.

The bathroom was a reasonable size, although it did at times smell of cabbage water! we couldn't really pinpoint why, but sometimes my wife found it quite strong. There is a quirky free standing bath and a good size walk in shower, designed so those with mobility problems can sit down and shower. Within the shower there was also a tub full of water with a plastic jug, I assume it was some sort of Thai thing although I have not encountered it before. The water temperature was always good and not too much fluctuation when it was on, so you won't scold yourself like some places we have been to. Complimentary shampoo and a half decent hair drier for you ladies. What we did miss was drawers, there are none and so we ended up keeping smalls etc in our suitcases.

There are some better rooms at the hotel I believe and a couple that are more like suites if that grabs your fancy.

There is free wifi throughout the hotel which worked pretty well. We ate at the hotel one night and the food was pretty good. My wife went European and had mushroom soup starter and sea bass with vegetables followed by creme caramel, she said it was very tasty and filling. I stuck with Thai and had a medley of Green Thai curry, crispy noodles, wonton soup, spicy Thai ground pork salad and steamed rice, a pleasant meal (the noodles were excellent) finished off with fresh fruit. In all, with two soft drinks and a coffee it came to around £19.

I do wish these hotels would put the actual price and not a lower pice and then add on 10% service charge and another 7% tax! personally I find it really irritating.

There were signs to say you could have a massage by appointment, but with so many places for such in the village and on the beach, I guess it doesn't get used too often. It seemed to be mainly populated with French visitors with a sprinkling of Dutch, Belgians, Germans and Brits. There was also the occasional Thai (at least I think they were Thai) and many who stayed were obviously making good use of the many golf courses in this region.

Over the past few years the sea has come in quite considerably and taken away large chunks of the beach particularly around this area and the Regent Beach Hotel. It was slightly better this year and you could actually walk along the beach both ways unless the tide was in or it was really windy which brought in the sea. But if you did want the beach you would have to walk probably about five to ten minutes if the tide was in, otherwise the two roads that run parallel to the hotel take you there in seconds.

All in all we had a good time whist staying at this hotel and would gladly return. For us it's about finding a base with a good pool that is clean and from where we can enjoy the atmosphere of 'the Village' and so this ticked most of the boxes.

Over the past 10 years we have stayed in a number of hotels in the village and nearby, but the Cera has certainly become our hotel of choice and after another stay of just over two weeks, I'm pleased to say that it still ticks all the boxes for us.
It is a fairly new hotel that has only been open for possibly 4 or 5 years and it has a quirky feel to it with colourful ceramics around the pool area and in the rooms. There are two main buildings for accommodation and reception is at the bottom of the smaller block. All the staff are very pleasant, polite, helpful and efficient from the boss Moonbeam down to the lovely old lady who helps to keep the gardens beautiful and has the most enchanting smile.

The pool area is very nice and with a good sized pool for the number of rooms with a shallower pool attached for youngsters. The deepest it gets in the main pool is 1.6 meters and starts at 1.3 meters. This year the temperature was quite pleasant, but it can on occasions be a little breathtaking when you first get in.
The gardens were well maintained and the sun beds are a very good size although i noticed that some smaller and less comfortable plastic ones were starting to appear as some of the wooden ones were starting to perish, I do hope they will repair these or replace them with like beds, as they are more like a single bed. Towels are provided. The hotel is well geared for disabled customers and there is a large disabled toilet poolside

There is something of a pool bar which doubles as the main bar and evening dining takes place around this area. The bar area is open plan, so if the wind is blowing, it can get somewhat breezy within, but sometimes on very hot days that was quite nice. Breakfast is taken in the restaurant just over the service road and again this building is open plan.

For me, breakfast is adequate, but In fairness, we don't normally bother eating in hotels in Thailand whether it be breakfast or other meals and normally when staying in this area we go into the village to Harry's bar (see separate review) where you get an excellent breakfast for just 150 baht (£3) so despite having paid for breakfast at the hotel, this is what we often do after having a drink and cereal at the hotel. The breakfast staff are very nice and very efficient. The hotel breakfast has cornflakes and chocolate pops, fruit juice, fresh fruit, salad, various types of eggs including omelettes or you could have chicken in oyster sauce and other Thai dishes, the fruit and strawberry yogurt were very nice.
The hotel has its own bakery on site so you can buy fresh bread and cakes each day, even at a weekend. There is no gym, but as it is pretty flat around this area, so I would go for a run or long walk most days usually first thing in the morning before it gets too hot.

There is no entertainment at this hotel (not a problem to us) and the bar doesn't stay open in the evening, but with 'The Village' so close by, they clearly accept that most residents will go there of an evening, which is exactly what we did. That said, the meals at the hotel are very good indeed.
The walk to the village is along one of two roads and is just over 100 yards away. The road to the hotels main entrance is a poorly lit road, but is not a problem at all and we never felt unsafe and it takes no more than 2-3 minutes. The other road is slightly better as far as lighting goes.
Our room was on the fourth (top) floor of the smaller block and from our balcony we had a view of the pool area and a partial view of the sea although partially obscured. It was a good sized room with a massive bed which I personally found very comfortable, two three quarter beds together so I guess they could have been split.

Complimentary shampoo and a half decent hair drier for you ladies.
There are some better rooms at the hotel I believe and a couple that are more like suites if that grabs your fancy. The air condoning unit, whilst effective, was a little on the noisey side, although we did soon get used to it at night and sometimes we didn't even need to use it.
There is free wifi throughout the hotel which worked pretty well although on occasions it could be frustratingly slow, but all in all a reasonable service.
There are signs to say you could have a massage by appointment, but with so many places for such in the village and on the beach, I guess it doesn't get used too often. It is mainly populated with French visitors with a sprinkling of Dutch, Finnish, Germans and Brits. There was also the occasional Thai particularly at weekends when they come down in numbers from Bangkok and some of those who stayed were obviously making good use of the many golf courses in this region. We did also have a party of Americans for a convention for about 4 days who were somewhat on the loud side, but I guess most are.

Over the past few years the sea has come in quite considerably and taken away large chunks of the beach particularly around this area and the Regent Beach Hotel. It was somewhat better this year and you could actually walk along the beach both ways unless the tide was in or it was really windy which brought in the sea. But if you did want the beach when the tide was in, you would have to walk probably about five to ten minutes, otherwise the two roads that run parallel to the hotel take you there in seconds.

All in all we had another good time whilst staying at this hotel and will gladly return. For us it's about finding a base with a good pool that is clean and from where we can enjoy the atmosphere of 'the Village' and so this ticked all of the boxes.
You can leave your postcards at reception and they will post them for you and they also advertise a taxi to Hua Hin, but this turned out to be one of the local taxi drivers from the Village and there was no difference in price, but it did tie you in time wise by using the hotel service. The price works out at 300 baht per person for a round trip.
See my reviews on places to eat in the village if you want some good Thai food.

Traveled by train from Bangkok to Cha Am. An enjoyable trip lasting about three and a half hours. Taxis were on hand at Cha Am station for the twenty minute trip out to Cera Resort.
First impressions upon arrival at the hotel were very positive. The place is exceptionally well cared for, spotlessly clean and displaying a flair for creative use of bright and cheerful ceramics.
Reception staff were efficient, cheerful and welcoming.
Upstairs, the high standards continued. The room was bright and airy and the creative use of ceramics was also evident in the bathroom with some delightful quirky touches.
The buffet breakfast offered a varied selection of Thai and International fare. Everything looked and tasted delicious.
Just one regret on the final day,- should have booked a longer stay.

Atfer a long flight and 2.5hr transfer we were pleased to be checked in with minimal to no fuss. Checked in to room 2206 (deluxe room) and the room was spotless and a good size. Storage space for your clothing was limited to one wardrobe with only 5 hangers and no shelving. Not great when you are there for 2 weeks. A set of drawers would have been a great addition to the room as there was ample space. When we woke the next morning (usual thai hard bed) and looking out the window to our seaview, we were really dissappointed, as it was at best, a partial view. Going to reception and telling them this, they then offered us to move, which we did to 2505. Much better. Swimming pool was a good size and the sunbeds were really comfortable and large. This was a really peaceful and relaxing area. Breakfast was tasty and the thai food was varied on a daily basis. The greeting at breakfast was a great personal touch and made you feel valued and special everyday. Needless to say the staff were fantastic. Dinner was very good and was not at rip off hotel prices. Overall this is a beautifully clean Hotel, with well tended grounds and great staff . A perfect place to chill out and relax.

The hotel is very lovely, we got deluxe room with very nice sea view. I recommended that you should book deluxe room if you love sea view or else you may get road view or parking lot view. This hotel is very near Novotel and Regent Cha-am so it located at a very comfortable area; restaurants, convenient store, shop, quiet pubs and bars. So if you love night life that is not too noisily, you will not be disappointed with this hotel. My friend and I drove to Hua Hin which is not too far.

Warm welcome and drink on arrival. Large room with balcony, cleaned daily.
I would highly recommend this hotel, the food is consistantly good, and the staff are really helpful and friendly. It is a short walk from local bars and restaurants.
The hotel can arrange a taxi to take you on any excusions, that you wish to go on. We visited Hua Hin - several times, it is like a mini Bangkok. Go to Cicada market there are lots of nice stalls and street food in very modern surroundings. Big Budda is also worth a trip and Elephant trekking. We booked a trip to the Island of Tula, via the hotel which was paradise !
We had an amazing trip, and would love to go back soon !

On reaching the Cera resort, we were greeted by the manager and other staff with these exquisitely woven flower bracelets which were so thoughtful, colorful and pretty. Cera Resort is newly opened, but the staff and management are efficient, friendly and warm. I like the spaciousness of the entire premises, the garden and the pool area are very relaxing to sit by or eat meals and soothing to look at atop from the room balconies. We had the grand suite on the 6th floor, which gave us an excellent view of the coast. Sunrises and sunsets were beautiful to watch. Each grand suite has a different theme, ours was modern and the walls were somewhat charmingly rustic. I believe others were Moroccan, Chinese, etc. It was so sweet of the housekeeping to make a twin swan-shaped towel decoration in the form of a heart sign on our bed. Additionally there was a refreshing fruit platter with a skilfully carved pineapple and the room had beautiful flowers in small nooks and corners.

Its a great place for a family, couples or singles looking for a quieter town away from the crowds of tourists. Hua-hin, the bigger town ( the King's summer retreat) is closeby ,30 mins, and is easily accessible by car. We were sad to hear of the global warming, which caused the beach to disappear by the resort, otherwise its just a 2 min walk to the coast.

Cera resort's restaurant is excellent. All the dishes are really good and I recommend it to eating outside. You can see that the see through kitchen is clean, modern and the fruits are organic grown on an estate close to the resort, just a few minutes away. The restaurant has an open deck structure( Thai style) which allows for a cool breeze to go in and out the entire space. Breakfast is really good, and the baked goods are delicious, made in their own bakery. Try the mini croissants!

If you want beautiful, spacious rooms with good service, good food and a good time, this is the place to stay!

Hi, we have stayed at the Cera many times now and love it there, we have stayed at the Regents in the past, but much prefer Cera as it’s quieter and more Thai. Haven’t stayed at the Nova as it’s too noisey for us and set to get noisier as it now becomes the family hotel of that part of Thailand 🥴. Breakfast has always been adequate for us, cereals, fruit juices, salad bar, eggs any way you want them, and plenty of Thai style food If you like that sort of thing. Staff are lovely and very accommodating. If ever we fancy a good old English breakfast we go up to Harry’s bar, I’m sure you’ve been there, by far the best food in the Village, although you would struggle to get a bad meal anywhere. If you are there in January we will undoubtedly see you there as we go for three weeks from about mid Jan. Anymore questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, like us, you have clearly found the magnetism of “The Village”. Stay safe👍🏾

I think the hotel can arrange a transfer. However, we used Thai Happy Taxi company, and they were excellent. It cost 2200 Baht for the trip to Cera. They were very efficient.

Yes, it was still there in December and going strong. The village is largely unchanged during the last couple of years, The Family Restaurant has moved to new, more modern premises next door to where they were but most other things are unchanged.
