Reviewed July 8, 2014

What a wonderful place, so close to Bangkok but could be a million miles from the hubbub of the city. We stayed in the private villas with a butler at our service, the accommodations were sensational as was the butler and all the staff. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but if you want something really special stay at The Barai Suites and private vi...

Our stay here did not get off to the best of starts given that our expectations had been somewhat raised by information provided by our operator at booking stage.
The Hyatt Regency is a wonderful setting , impeccably presented with great facilities.
Set next to the beach the tidal changes will result in varying areas of sand being available for bathing but never a problem given the bathing facilities on offer around the lagoon pool. Separate man made beach on edge of toddler pool area is a great idea. We walked for miles on the beach either side of the hotel without any problem. Kite surfing , Horse riding , Jet ski, massage facilities etc are all available.The sea does have warning signs regarding jellyfish but this did not present any real problem during our stay.
The main hotel is very clean, the staff are very courteous and the food in Figs restaurant always excellent particularly the choice of food on offer at breakfast time.
Our first seven nights in the main hotel area were enjoyable , gym facility is open 24 hours , trips to town were easy using local taxis or Tut Tut on the return journey. The local night market is only 5 mins walk up the road and offers great food and craft sales but only open at weekends.
A trip to Hau Hin Fishing Lodge was a great day out for my husband.
Lots to see and do if you ever get bored of the Hotels great setting.
Now onto the highlight of our holiday spending our final four nights in the Regency Club.
Upgraded rooms set around a more private pool and relaxation area make for a special experience.
Complimentary tea ,coffee and soft drinks available all day with fruit and ice cream delivered to your sun lounger during the afternoon.
5.00 to 7.00 pm each day is time to enjoy the complimentary buffet , drinks including wine,beer and spirits really set the mood for the start of your evening.
We were made to feel very special in the Regency Club thanks to the manager Mr Sammy Carolas and his staff.
We are most grateful to Sammy for organising our marriage blessing with a Buddhist monk and the very special Valentines Evening meal on the beach at Mc Farland House.
The special touches in appreciation of our celebrating our anniversary and my husbands 50th birthday were really appreciated.
Our stay at the facility and the warmth of all the staff have helped secure some special memories and we look forward to returning at the first opportunity.
We would thoroughly recommend the Regency Club facility and all of the services on offer.
We also used the award winning Barai Spa which was amazing experience, excellent massages and foot reflexology.

Room Tip: Regency club rooms are a must at this hotel ! Excellent service in Regency club with complimentary s...
