We stayed in premium garden view room. Checkin and Check-out was very quick and smooth. On arrival they provided very refreshing drink (butterfly pea drink) and cold towel.
Resort was very big and gardens were kept very well maintained. Room was little bit small and very old furniture. View from the room is very nice. We had ground floor room so we were able to use front and back door which is very convenient. Lots of chairs are provided at the pool and beach. Chairs are always available at beach and pool. Drinks were reasonable at pool side bar. Don’t miss out on happy hour deals between 4-5pm at poolside bar and 9-10pm at Sala Siam. They also have live music at Sala Siam. We had cocktails at both bars and cocktails were very good.
Breakfast buffet was very good, wide choices for eastern and western dishes and very fresh. Location of the breakfast buffet (Issara Café) was also very nice located next to beautiful pond full with lotus. However I spotted black cat (pet cat) in the dining area (pet animal should not be permissible in food preparation and dining area). Black cat was walking on deck, under tables and throughout the buffet.
All three restaurants are well overpricing. They had Thursday night Thai dinner buffet for 1000 B (plus 17% tax) per person. We had a look around 8pm and only one table was occupied. At night time resort is not very happening place because everyone goes to town for dinner. Price of dinner at Anantara is not justifiable. You can get nice Seafood Dinner Buffet at Centara Garden for 1200B which is cheaper and a lot nicer than other option available at Anantara.
Anantara resort is like a small topical island. Property is full of mosquitos and Anantara charge you 320 B for use of mosquitos repellent, this is ridiculous management of this resort know that they have problem with mosquitos and they still not include this dirt cheap mosquitos repellent.
Location of the resort is not very convenient; it is located 5-6 kms away from the town centre. Resort provides shuttle mini bus/van service every hour for 100 B (plus 17 % tax) per person for return trip which I found ridiculous. I took shuttle bus service on the first day, on 2nd day I took tuk tuk (shuttle van) which cost me 10B from resort to the night market.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The 187-room Anantara Resort Hua Hin is a distinctive Thai village-style property located on the sunrise coast of the Gulf of Thailand, around 220 kms south of Bangkok. Hidden amidst 14 acres of luxuriantly landscaped gardens and lagoon pools, the picturesque resort enjoys a beachfront location at the quiet end of Hua Hin's long sandy beach for only 5 kms. from Hua Hin town centre. A three-meters high terracotta wall cleverly cocoons the resort from the hustle and bustle of town. As you make your way along the landscaped driveway, a sense of calm descends. The sense of arrival is heightened as you admire a decorative wall adorned with a parade of elephants. A cool breeze drifting in from the beach floats through the open-air Lobby with the strains of a melodic Thai tune lingering. Polished timber floors and Thai-style salas (pavilions) heighten the ambience of an intimate tropical hideaway. ... more less
