First of all the good things, which are many. Very well maintained small resort with very nice rooms, well kept grounds and a very good location. It's slightly less than a kilometer from The Hilton which is where the centre of Hua Hin town revolves around. It's a 20-25 minute walk or 50 to 100 THB (100 THB = 3,40 USD) by Tutuk depending on how good your bargaining skills are and how keen the driver is for a fare. The hotel provides a shuttle into town but not the other way around. We got a upgrade from Sansky Suite to OceanBed Villa which is always a good way to start our stay. I suspect we got the upgrade because we booked directly with the hotel instead of through agents? (not sure if it's true) Breakfast is good - good quality and spread. On holidays and weekends, you can have ala carte breakfast at the Oceanside Restaurant which is less crowded. Buffet breakfast is served at the Sala Monsson. The Oceanside Restaurant was right by the beach which is rare for Hua Hin. And, also the breach is quite private - no touts or locals wandering around trying to sell you something which is what you will get on the other side. Although the beach is not the best in Hua Hin especially during high tide when the water comes right up to the bank.
Everyone was very polite and nice and service was excellent.
There is a road (2 lanes of traffic on each side) separating the Sansky/Silksand/Sala Monsson/Spa/Main Reception which is on the "street" side and the Oceanbed/Oceanside Restaurant side. There's a guide helping guests cross the road which is in any case not super busy so it didn't really bother us. Oceanside during out stay was less crowded and more private during our stay.
We came here to do tailor suites and a dress for my wife and after looking around decided on Milano near the Hilton. On an adjoining road to the left of The Hilton if you are facing the Hilton. Good quality, service and price. Bae was really good and not pushy at all. We found Mike and Co. too pricey although its the nearest tailor to the Putahracsa. Maybe clothe and quality may be better but it's twice the price of most tailors you can find near The Hilton.
For the tiny bits of improvement which would make this a 5 star in my books instead of a a 4 star. First I must say that being spoilt by excellent hotels in Asia, my standards are quite high. The wooden door leading to the patio in the Oceanside should have a small bolt so there's a little more privacy. I went for a early morning swim at about 7am when the attendents were getting the deck chairs ready and arranging the towels. Would have been nice if I was given a towel then or served a glass of water or something. A gym would have been a nice addition to the resort as well. A better finger food menu at the pool side (Oceanside) - not sure what's available on the other side - would have been good. We could find only french fries. No calamari or chicken wings or other snacks. Nuts or crackers were not served at the bar at night. Small things but they count. Overall very happy with the stay and very likely to be here again.
