drove with own car from our house in Bangkok to Hua Hin, after the stress of getting out of Bangkok, we received a refreshinhg and nice welcome drink at checkin. unfortunately didn't had the time to drink it all out as the checkin process is very smooth and efficient, followed with a butler showing us around.
we liked the hotel, the architecture of the garden and pool area, leading up to the beach is excellent.
i will defintely return to this hotel for a short break escape when in Bangkok.
visited the wine yard and the old royal summer residence by private hoteltaxi. a day well spend and good value for money.
areas for improvement:
1)my skin is very sensitive to sunburn, i can only expose before 10 AM or after 16h. the pool area have little areas that are protected enough against direct sunlight. However the pool staff was extremely hlpfull moving us around, no effort too big for them and more over on their own initiative and with a smile.
Thank you Diamond !
2a) Azure, fish restaurant. there is hardly any fish on the menu. from a sea side resport, i would look forward eating fresh fish, big lobsters (as in Pattaya for example). it was quite disappointing with nothing impressive on the menu.
2b) breakfast: is spread across different locations, a bit of a hassle to search for the combination of food you are looking for requiring multiple walks to and from your table.
2c) the Thai restaurant: being belgian, culinary experiences are part of my culture. when eating in Thailand, i look for an exotic journey of flavours and aromas throughout the menu in every dish i explore. Whilst the food is undoubtedly very good (we dined every day at the hotel) , missed the "wow" factor i find in European Michelin star rated restaurants.
Having said this, the overall standard is excellent and wil definitely return to this hotel;.
price wise, the food costs double of what i paid at Holiday Inn Pattaya. the price difference is not reflected in the "experience", But my benchmark standards are high.
