“Beautiful and Charming”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We stayed here for 5 nights and found it surpassed our expectations for its beauty and charm.
The rooms were great. We found the immmaculate grounds with their beautiful hedged sculptures really added to the calm and peaceful ambience of the place. The colonial look and feel made you really feel you somewhere grand!

The beach to the back of the hotel is quite nice on a good day but with 3 pools to choose from and great service in being looked after around the pools, we spent much of our time relaxing their as much as possible here.

They serve one of the best buffet breakfasts we have experienced - food was various, copious and outstanding. The service too was 5 star.

I would also the add the gym/fitness centre they have here is also more than adequate for serious fitness enthusiasts.

I have stayed in four of the Major large chain hotels in Hua Hin in the past year and I have to report the Centara Grand has stolen my heart.A big beautiful property with lush gardens allowing you to ramble over the whole property.We had a deluxe room overlooking the beach and it was just divine.Every morning I would sit on the balcony with my coffee and watch and listen to the waves gently crashing on the beach.Every morning at Sunrise the staff would be on the beach cleaning up the plastics and coconuts that had deposited there during the night.It is a very popular beach and one can sit at the beachside open air hotel cafe having lunch or happy hour drinks watching people swimming,sunbaking,riding and or falling off horses.A security guard is on the steps of the beach stopping the many who want to come in for a swim,shower use the toilets or just look around.The hotel which is 90 years old this year has huge majestic trees around the swimming pools and this allows many pool lounges to be scattered around on the lawns in shade or semishade with dappled light.The air around the pools is nice and cool because of the massive gardens.Pool boys will rush over to give you your towels and spread them on your lounge for you and erect your umbrella to your desire.
Friday night saw a seafood BBQ at the beachside restaurant and it was well patronised and good food.On Wednesdays they have a French Buffet at the railway restaurant and though expensive it is well and truly worth it.They have genuine Northern hemisphere lobster with claws,Alaskan crabs,French oysters,New Zealand mussels and of course lots of French food (yummy cheeses ).We foolishly didnt try the spa untill the last day and we would have visited it a lot more if we had of gone earlier.It is near the beach and the wave sounds add to your treatment and enhanced relaxation.There is a child care/ kids club between the two beachfront pools and my niece constantly wanted to go there she had so much fun.Breakfasts were great and not seriously overcrowded.Hotel is right in the centre of town so easy to get out for meals or stores.I live in Bangkok and have now made the Centara my new holiday home.
The only negatives In room internet didnt work and no drinking water is offered around the pools .

This was a fabulous girls trip to thailand, after 3 nights in Bangkok Hua Hin was just what we need. The hotel was amazing and beautiful only wish we had more time to explore. It took us a long time to get to Hua Hin from Bangkok but on arrival they gave us wet cloths to wipe down our faces and hands which was very refreshening. Staff where amazing. Even though we booked a triple room our room was not made on arrival even though we arrived hours after check in, nonetheless staff where willing and happy to deal with the matter of a third bed. The pool was amazing and we where so close to the beach. What was strange was the stares from other guests, I didnt know what to put this down to, 3 young black women in such a hotel or another reason. Overall good stay and will consider staying again.

Room Tip: A very mature crowd, if you plan on going out, ask to be in a room a way from people that are likely...

I was dismayed to read a review that was seriously negative regarding this hotel, and had to see for myself. I could not disagree more with that finding.
I address the service in the bar area/lounge where we had drinks before dinner. The attentiveness of the staff and the overall ambience was superb. Our little snack dish was never empty and our drinks were refreshed promptly. Very courteous service all around. I hope to spend more time there next visit to Hua Hin.

Exceptional hotel. Top service yet not pretentious. Beach is great. Fantastic swimming and perfect for young kids. Lots of things to do in the hotel. It never felt crowded in the hotel or on the beach.

The location near the city centre shopping is great. There are lots of eating options in town.

Breakfast was top quality

Overall unforgettable experience. Congratulations to the management.

stayed in november 2012 for 10 nights in pool villla, liked pretty much everything about hotel and would recomend to anyone thinking of staying in Hua Hin.

Location of hotel is good with most places yo would want to go to in town in walking distance, everything else is a short tuk tuk ride away. Easy to get to bars, local restaraunts, Temple, railway station,Mcdonalds/burger king, shops, Night market, Market Village shopping mall etc. Easy to get taxi or Tuk Tuk to anywhere you cant walk to. Hotel on Beach, which is average by standards elsewhere. Grounds of Hotel on other hand are trully amazing, with a great deal of care and hard work put in to keeping them that way. Toppery animals, birds etc were very impressive.

Our room was a pool villa. Was great having our own space and pool as well as having option of using the other pool areas in hotel. Villa pool was great for a quick dip to cool down, or to just relax in but not really big enough to swim about in. Was nice to have our own private sunbeds as well. Villa room was very nice and comfortable, good fan and air con, powerfull shower, comfy bed. Loved the whitewash colonial style. Watch out for the slightly mad squirrells that swing about the trees in the villa side, very entertaining.

Food at hotel was very good and we ate at several of the eateries. The villa side thai place was only open for the first few days during which we ate there for breakfast and also Dinner twice. Excellent service and very nice food. The club at the main hotel was a nice perk, and all the included snacks and drinks were nice. Went to the railway for breakfast (very nice) and for the steak buffet. The "night market" buffet and show is very good and it was great to try such a variety of differnt thai foods. Would highly recomend the seafood pavilllion for dinner, one of the nicest meals iv ever eaten.

service at the hotel is fantastic as is the cleanliness of the hotel. Staff are fantastic, all had good english skills and were very helpful. I tiped not because like in other parts pf the world it is expected for good service, but because the workers in hotel are paid a pittence for long hours and hard work, and they still smile. Id be as grumpy as ...i am now that im back home in the dark cold scottish weather!
.
From hotel we also

- went on siam pearl boat cruise to national park
- went to "monkey mountain"
- Night market, Market Village, Hua Hin temple, Cicadia Market
- Went to Elephant "foundation" (dont if like me you care about Elephants)
- ate at Rashnee at Thai silk village twice- best thai food iv ever eaten!
