Hi,

I have stayed at the regent cha am on several occasions and shall be returning again on the 28th may with my family.

I would class this hotel as a 3 star+ a little dated but well kept and very clean rooms,helpful staff etc.

The regency wing guests have there own pool everyone else shares the main pool(always plenty of room).

The hotel has great restuarants(quite expensive) but we always had breakfast to the left of the main pool (looking towards the ocean) a small beach cafe costing very little.

At lunch time please go to Nees place on the beach to the right of the hotel were you will be really looked after very cheap beer,great thai food and a fabulous massage from "Deng" or "Ruby" other restaurants along the beach include madame toyas and many more.

Go out of the hotel main reception turn left and down that road you will find some other places to eat including the Bamboo corner which is excellent and shouldn't cost you more than ��10 for 3 courses with drinks for 2 persons.

On an evening we tend to travel into Hua hin by taxi it takes around 15 mins and costs 300 baht return (including a 3-4 hour wait) do not tip the driver(wait on the main road outside the hotel for taxis or ask reception.

In Hua Hn you will find a great night market and fantastic restuarants some jetting out into the sea with the best seafood ever.

HOPE YOU ENJOY YOU HOLIDAY

Could you also tell me if there is much to do there? We are a young couple that would be staying here, we're not after much nightlife, just as long as there is stuff to do. I've herad that it is a really quiet reosrt with not a lot going on.

Am very greatfull for all advise.

Cheers

Tony gives a very good flavour for the Regent and Hua Hin area. I have stayed in Beach Garden, Regent and Dusit in Hua Hin over 4 holidays. Regent is mid class. I didn't eat much in hotel - loved getting taxi or shuttle into Hua Hin and using the great seafood restaurants. There is also quite a nice Indian one for a change.

On last visit was a bit disappointed that storms had changed beach completely and a number of the lovely little beach shack restaurants were out of business.

Overall I think it is a lovely part of Thailand, not too commercialised and very friendly. I met good friends here - both Thai and visitors.

Enjoy your stay.

On tours I would wait until you get there. I went on trip to River Kwai booked through rep, and although probably a bit dearer than those booked in town, it was first class. We had a driver and guide just for the 2 of us, air conditioned people carrier, and went on boat trip on Kwai, and train journey over bridge. We could stop when and where we wanted as we had no tour group to please - maybe we were just lucky.

Most restaurants and bars will have staff keen to do a trip for you to make themselves some money on the side - I guess they may not be insured and safety may be an issue! One year a group of us (other tourists I met there) did go on a trip with a local bar owner and it was great - big 4x4 and we did temple, monkey mountain thing, and a boat trip to a great island for snorkelling.

Previous poster has told you all about the Regent, I belive there is a kids pool, as far as things to do outside of the hotel area there are a lot of nature trips like the trip to the Sam Roi Yot National Park, takes about 40 minutes from Hua Hin or 1 hour from Cha Am. There is also a day trip to snorkel at Bang Saphan, about 2 and a half hours south of Hua Hin. You can Elephant ride in the mountains overlooking the coast or go to Khao Takiab beach just south of Hua hin town center and Elephant ride. The Pala U Waterfall trip takes you into jungle astyle area, lots of butterflies, very natural. There's a Go-Kart track opposite Hua Hin Airport. In Hua hin lots of restaurants, bars and cafes, street stalls, night markets, shops and things.

When you go into Hua Hin go to Ken Diamond Tours opposite the Hilton, they are open late and they have a big choice of trips and things to do.

River kwai I forget to mention, as another poster said, if you are interested it's a great trip, though easrly start, if you have a couple of weeks there I would go for an overnight trip even if you have already paid for your Cha Am Hotel, it's not that much more and it is fascinating, lots to see and do.

You can take a boat trip to Koh Singto ( Lion Island ) from Khao Takiab beach and you can also do fishing, they are very organised ( e.g absolutely insist you wear life vest, nice to see safety taken seriously ! ), even the kids can have fun hanging their fishing line over the side of the boat, and yes, the Monkeys on the Mojntain at Khao Takiab, nice temples and excellent views. But do be wary of the Monkeys, if they know you have food they will follow and are quite persistant. There are no charges for seeing the temples and sites there, the Monks take care also of a lot of dogs so you can do something nice and take some dog food or dried dog food and give to the Lady Minks who feed the dogs, very tranquil place and relaxing views too.

IN reply to your question about nightlife there is next to nothing happening in cha am apart from 1 seedy little bar area in HUA HIN THERE ARE sevaral nightclubs and discos the most popular being the hua hin brew bar at the hilton hotel which has a live band every night ,another place worth visisting is the rockestra cafe you need a taxi to go there as it is about 10 minutes outside of town it has a live band and good thai food its best at the weekends,also if you are into a bit of the old rock/heavy metal there is a bar on soi bintaban called the gene pub it has a fantastic live band nightly 7pm until 1am on soi bintaban there are sevaral good beer bars with friendly staff i recomend the Celtic Bar (dedicated to the football team Glasgow Celtic) and the Toro Bar
