“Very tasteful in design and in breakfast”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

One of the first things that draws the attention in this hotel is all the shapes of the hedges in the garden, cut in shapes of all kinds of animals. It makes a walk in the hotel grounds an adventure like visiting a zoo. Sea and beach are just behind the hotel and very clean.
The entrance of the hotel is really nice, light and transparent, nice colonial designs, very tasteful. Giving a sensation of space and atmosphere.
The room is very nice, as well as the bathroom, choice of bath and or shower, nice soaps and nothing really left to wish for. Flatscreen TV of course with plenty of international channels.
And then of course the best treat is the breakfast. The buffet has so many compartments, from all the continents and all the different types of breakfasts in the world. Juices from Orange via Mango to Kiwi, eggs in all its varieties of course, muffins, pies, breads, cheeses, sausages.
Anybody from any part in the world could eat their favorite local breakfast that they are used to, or of course, try something new, or try all, like I did :) As you can imagine I felt like rolling out of the room again instead of walking...
Altogether a wonderful experience that I can recommend to anybody willing and able to spend a bit money for an overnight in this place.

The hotel facilities are first class and it's central location is a added bonus, I would choose this hotel even if it was in the middle of nowhere

I really would struggle to criticise the Centara, it was quiet and refined without being stuffy, the rooms are simple but beautiful, very comfortable and immaculately clean, Staff were attentive but unobtrusive, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast choice was phenomenal, I can't think of anything that was lacking we really couldn't have asked for anything more. On a very minor Ievel, I personally found the sheets were a bit hard and that the poolside towels were bigger and fluffier than those in the bathrooms. The service was first rate in all areas, room service, the spa, restaurant and poolside. I was disappointed however as we were leaving, our 5.00 am wake up call coming at 5.30 for starters, fortunately we were up and ready. Checking out was painful, the night receptionist didn't seem to have a grasp of the systems and it took more than 20 minutes - to complete which was irritating as our airport taxi was waiting. I left in a hurry, without a receipt, feeling dissatisfied and annoyed which is a real pity as until that moment I was more than delighted with everything.

What can I say other than you have to experience this hotel. We stayed 4 days in superior room with breakfast we enjoyed it so much we hardly ventured out and did not get to explore Huahin. It is visually beautiful and interesting. Outstanding staff every well run hotel that is immaculate everywhere. The spa is fantastic and again beautiful had beauty treatment and massage. The restaurant is world class. What I love the best overall is the attention to detail. Next time we will try to see Huahin.

Room Tip: The Villa should not near the sea because you cannot see it and it is very long way to the club loun...

We have stayed at this hotel five times over the last ten years or so, which obviously means we like it! From its attractive "colonial" appearance and gardens, the comfortable and well furnished rooms and general facilities and its location on the beach in the centre of town with bars and restaurants on the doorstep it has everything you could reasonably expect from a smart resort hotel.

Although in the middle of town you are not really conscious of this apart from an occasional glimpse of the nearby multi storey Hilton Hotel rearing it's ugly head above the trees and the loudspeaker vans driving around touting for the latest kick-boxing evening (well worth a look).

Don't expect an idyllic tropical beach though. Although the sand, sea and sky look wonderful it is a public beach with all that entails, so the hotel does not provide beach beds etc. They are in fact not needed as the hotel has plenty of these around its swimming pools and grounds.

The breakfasts are good and generous, the various restaurants are excellent, particularly their themed evenings, and those in Club rooms and Villas are able to enjoy drinks and snacks throughout the day. Evening drink time in the Club bar is very popular; the hotel needs to take more steps to prevent non-Club guests from gatecrashing this.

This year we treated ourselves to a stay in a Deluxe Pool Villa. These are located away from the main hotel, separated from it by the small public road leading down to the beach. The area has a very exclusive feel with its own pool and breakfast, bar and reception area, as well as a very good small tailoring outlet for guests. The Villas themselves are characterful and truth to tell, apart from the Premium Deluxe Pool Villa, which we saw, are not furnished to the same standard of comfort as the rooms in the main hotel, but this is made up for by the private pools and gardens and general atmosphere.

A very nice hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin first opened its doors in the early 1920s at a time when Hua Hin was still a sleepy coastal village. This five-star beachfront resort was built along the classic lines of that era, with phenomenal gardens and beautifully spacious rooms and suites (up to 170 square metres) with high ceilings, polished hardwood flooring, period furniture, and the warm tones of Thai silk. The resort is also home to 42 single-storey villas that offer privacy and space (up to 120 square metres) and the choice of a Jacuzzi or plunge pool on the terrace. Beside Hua Hin’s gorgeous beach, a stone’s throw away, and a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy to the full, the resort also offers plenty of leisure options for adults and children: four swimming pools and children’s pools, a superb spa, a fitness centre, tennis courts, Muay Thai and Tai Chi classes, and two kids clubs. Plus, the town is outside our door, and some of the best golf courses in Thailand are within easy travelling distance. The dining venues include a colonial style café and all-day dining restaurant, a Japanese restaurant, a Thai restaurant located near the villas, and the modern COAST Beach Club & Bistro. With its setting on the beach and its elegant atmosphere, the resort also is the perfect setting for a dream wedding. ... more   less
