Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa

Reviewed October 9, 2013

The rooms, staff and pool are truely outstanding. The restaurant and bar staff are a part of the "caring" department and they do try to show this. A favourite of ours was the beach bar, and my partner ended up behind the italian pizza oven showing the head chef how to make dough balls - an evenings entertinment for all and much appreciated by the staff.
The pool is just brilliant, as it travles around the whole complex so you can choose to do long laps if you wish. Free wi-fi and its good to join the SPG program to get a complimentary paper and fruit each day. After the ambivalence of bankok hotel staff even at 4 & 5 star hotels, it was a true delight. The only thing, and I did talk to them beforehand after a trip advisor review had shown it up, is that its not a beah holiday.
There IS a beach, and we enjoyed watching the fishing boats out each night, but the sea comes right up to the boundary wall about 4pm in August, and its very shallow, rocky and a bit industrial. So you can swim and be on the beach but you wont be walking hand in hand for miles. There's no watersports due to the rocks or other activity on the water, except some hopeful local junks and jet skis to take you along the water.
The hotel is not in Hua Hin, even though ts named that way, it's actually in Cha Am, so you have to get the shuttle bus in, for which they charge. Something that should be free really considering that Sheraton try to make it seem they are in Hua Hin. There is a Tesco Lotus in town to get staples and alcohol at reasonable prices.
We stayed in a garden room and that's all you need unless you really want a pool room, which is what we'd go for otherwise. But the first floor rooms are more private as people can't see in.
We had some suits, shirts and a dress made at the tailor there. A bit hit and miss. The shirts were great and they will negotiate a long way on price. The dress was good too. But with the suits, you are trying to be forced into a stock, asiatic shape, even though it says a Hugo Boss etc template. So be cautious. The ladies suits still didn't fit after 5 fittings, as they made it too tight but they did acknowledge it and offer not to have it or give us extra fabric, so with gentle confidence about not being as it should, you should get a satisfactory compromise. the red fabrics all ran though, so be warned and don't get talked into white cuffs on reds.
The spa is ok. If you want sports massage or have an injury, they just don't have enough knowledge nor skill, even though they say they do understand. As a beauty treatment place, its just like any other.

Room Tip: Choose garden first floor to minimise cost and it is better than less private poolside. Join SPG pro...

lovely hotel and great for the family. the huge pools are really nice. all very clean. we had a room with pool access which was especially nice for the grandparents to watch the grandkids swim around without having to sit out in the pool area if they didn't want to. enjoyed the cocktail hour before dinner each night. Would be perfect if it was a little closer to actual Hua Hin but then you probably wouldn't get a resort of the same size. Rooms are very big.

Room Tip: go for one with pool access

Located about 10 min drive to downtown Hua Hin, the hotel comprises of 8 buildings connected via swimming pools. Several 1st floor rooms have direct access to the pools. Booking two garden view rooms, I was fortunate to get upgrade to one ocean front room and one ocean front suite as an as SPG platinum. Both rooms have a small private porch and gated garden with a lovely view of the ocean and lawn. The swimming pool is just a few steps away. I am not a big fan of swimming pool but I really enjoy the interconnected pools here. The complimentary breakfast buffet is decent but I like the one at Anantara resort better. There are several good seafood restaurant nearby including Sang Thai and La Mer.
A bit further away, Hua Hin Hill Vineyard restaurant has a very lovely view but average and overprice food.

Stayed at hotel for 7 nights and had a fantastic time !
The hotel is well run and the staff are friendly polite and courteous. Stayed in Lagoon View Room this time - had stayed in Lagoon Access previously. To upgrade to LAR was going to be an extra 1700bt per night. Lagoon view room on first floor actually offers more privacy as access rooms at pool level have procession of swimmers at your window so need to keep the blind closed for added privacy whereas not an issue on 1st floor LVR.
If you have young kids I'd definitely opt for LAR as great for little ones to jump straight into lagoon. Nice beach but lots of jellyfish prominent so more than a little off putting to go in for a dip in the sea.
High quality of food at all restaurants & reasonably priced. Only item that is pricey is wine due to the import duties. House wine bottle from around £25 (1200 baht) although more selected bottles over £40.
Overall would thoroughly recommend hotel and will definitely stay again !

The Sheraton Resort & Spa is firstly not really in Hua Hin. It is in a place called Cha-Am which is an area before you head in to Hua Hin.
The resort itself is definately 5*. Very large open air reception with fantastic views of the hotel grounds. Numerous swimming pools, great garden areas with lots of seating. Childrens play area and many many restaurants.
The hotel resort is massive and takes a good 5-10 minute walk from reception down to the beach (depending if you stop and look at the wonderful views).
The rooms themselves were very large and tastefully designed. The rooms included everything you would expect! The bathroom included a bath and seperate shower area.
There are some nice restaurants within this hotel and are not really to expensive compared to other 5* hotels in the world. The breakfast was unbelievable!! The restaurant is huge!! The morning buffet catered for every breakfast food you could think of!! It will set anyone up for the day ahead.
I would definately recommend this hotel for anybody who wants a luxurious relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle.
The only downside is that the resort is a 15 minute car ride from Hua Hin and there's really anything else in the area. This meant we had to rent a car if we wanted to go anywhere. However, the hotel do offer a shuttle bus into Hua Hin for 100Baht each.

Returning visit after a year, many things had changed. Some were better though others were bit down. I stayed on the first floor room again with direct pool access from balcony. Hotel area was quiet. Renovation had made environment and rooms better, room was clean, neat and had all necessary amenities. Bathroom was quite spacious with separated shower room and standard bathtub. Sheraton's bed is the best!. It's soft but had adequate support, pillows, bed sheets and blanket were awesome. You would definitely get a good night sleep in it. Pool was huge and awesome. Kids would love it. Service was good. Restaurant was spacious and can accommodate large crowd of guests on long holidays. Breakfast was very good. You will see many choices of food to try.

Last visit I didn't get Wi-Fi here (hefty charge), this time it was complimentary. Parking and lobby access was still akward, esp when you stay on the 1st floor. You had to go upstairs to lobby area, in order to walk downstairs again in front of the lobby to your car. Otherwise, you had to make a detour outside the hotel building. Hotel now had more club cars to help you travel from place to place. This was because the big building construction near hotel conference center was going on so most guests had to park at temporary lot outside hotel area which was accessible by club cars. I expect the parking lot would be moved back soon.

In conclusion, Sheraton offer a great experience to stay.

We went here for our 1 st ever visit to thailand, well staff at this hotel are fantastic. Rooms so clean and spacious! Lovely flowers & wine given for our anniversary. Pool lovely though very small beach not brilliant but didn't bother us. If you do go onto beach from hotel on left there was lovely massages for such a bargain price. Though hotel spa maybe little pricey in comparison but well worth it. Amazing spa & treatments!! Hotel provided a shuttle into hua-hin, which was great to eat out in the evenings. Food was lovely, ate for breakfast & lunches...on our last day they even provided a " breakfast box"?! Amazing!! And the hotel sent me home with flowers that made it all the way back in their box to the uk past all customs too?! Lasted aweek back home! Brilliant stay!!

Hua hin itself isn't the most scenic I feel in Thailand but I've never met such friendly people! Adjusted to their culture, & food is amazing and so cheap too! Out of all many restaurants we went to " on on corner" amazing staff & food!
Also hire a driver from hotel for excursion, felt like a VIP and was approximately £20 for four hours?
Will definitely return.
We preferred staying out if town, taxis so cheap too.
