My cousin who knows the city well had a discount and offered to make reservation. This resort simply exceeds expectation. The fact that it is right on the beach made it a prime location. And, it is near the HuaHin market which is rather convenient. What is most impressive when you walk pass the lobby along the path to quest rooms, you'll first notice a pool which is a master piece. From big trees in the middle of and on the side of the pool near kids' corner with wading area; two kinds of fountain, one of which you can sit around in the middle of the pool. Every morning, I took my favorite spot around the pool facing the beach, enjoying a cup of coffee. It's marvelous. And, if the sun is too strong, you got a shady area too cool off. There're cozy lounging sofa and chairs everywhere.
The room is cozy and clean; a bit small but snug. A bathroom door is somewhat challenging as it is a huge sliding door. Otherwise, it's satisfactory. Breakfast and lunch buffets are excellent. Many choices from local Thai food; Asian fusion; to European (I daresay there was a delicious French orange duck dish one day!) Lots of choices of bread, pastries, fruits, and beverages. Staff are cordial and efficient. We did not have dinner at the resort since we wanted to explore the market at night time.
The spa experience is fantastic. The ambience itself gave me the feeling that I'm in a world-class spa: spacious and luxurious. The massage room I was in was beautiful; it also has a built-in shower that's a size for 3 people. My first Balinese massage was out of this world; the little touch like a bow of lotus on the floor right where I'm facing down made all the difference in class and style. If you are into pampering, you can't miss a spa time at this resort. The price is on the high end, but it worths every penny.
Note that it is a family/kids-friendly place. Therefore, this might not be ideal for a romantic getaway. Still, a couple may enjoy walking along the beach at sunset. Just stay away from the pool when you need a quiet time.
