Rest Detail Hotel Hua Hin
Ranked #15 of 144 Hotels in Hua Hin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stayed four nights in Rest Detail Hotel.

LOCATION



The hotel is located about 10 minutes (by car) from the city of Hua Hin, in an area that is pretty remote. There is nothing really close to the hotel and you really have to go to Hua Hin for shops and restaurants. This is obviously an advantage if you are looking for peace and quiet, but it might not be the place for people looking for fun and night life. The hotel offers a shuttle service several times a day, but it is not completely flexible as you need to book your seat on the shuttle at least 30 minutes before. Through the hotel, we decided to rent a motorbike, and they were happy to help us with this request. However, if you plan to use taxis, note that a one way trip into Hua Hin is about 200 THB.


AMBIENCE


The decoration of the hotel is bright and airy, with lots of white wood. We chose one of the pool villas, and it really feels like a completely different place, a dozen of white villas overlooking a huge pool. A true tropical paradise! The beach however is not great, and we ended up spending our time in the pool rather than in the sea. It has to be noted that the maintenance of this hotel is simply incredible. Nothing is left to chance and the cleaning staff really does a thorough job of cleaning and making sure that absolutely everything, whether inside or outside the bungalow, is spotless and working perfectly.

Now for the downside… We stayed there during a school vacation, and there were a high number of families in the pool villas. While most of them were very respectful of the community, a couple of the larger families really made a lot of noise, with water fights and leaving huge rafts float all around the pool, not being picked up or looked after. Some couples actually fled the private pool every day to go to the common pool which, incredibly was more quiet. This could have been manageable, were it not for the ridiculous pool rules…! The pools at the hotel are open from 7am (great if you’re trying to sleep in..) to 6 (or 7pm not sure of the exact time anymore - but early!) pm. This means that when finally the kids desert the pool and adults could enjoy it… well, it closes. And I really mean it closes… Actually, towels even get picked up and chairs folded way before closure time which is not very nice if you want to enjoy the pool till the last minute. One evening, we were quietly sitting in the water on the front of our villa, when the phone rang and an employee accused us of swimming in the pool like we had committed some sort of heinous crime. I must say we were a bit shocked by her tone and very annoyed. But it gets worse.. The next evening, our neighbors were in the pool, making no noise at all, when an employee actually showed up through the garden with a light to order them out of the pool, even though nobody was even remotely bothered by them and most villas were empty with guests away for the evening. Felt like witnessing a bad cop show! At first, we were really not happy with this, but in the end, it just turned into a big joke, and we had huge laughs about it!


ROOM


The villas are lovely, mainly done in white wood and simple earth tones. They are huge, immaculately clean and extremely well maintained. The bathroom is also huge, with nice amenities. The bed was very comfortable with a lot of huge and soft pillows.



BREAKFAST & FOOD



The breakfast was quite simply amazing. Great buffet with a huge choice of sweet and savory foods, western and asian, as well as an ice coffee bar. It was truly very, very nice!


SERVICE


Very nice and friendly service in general, but particularly room service, which was exceptional. We also very much appreciated the nice gentleman in charge of the ice coffee bar at breakfast who always had a kind word for us and all the guests. However, room service staff need to improve their english. Invariably, when we called them for any small request such as getting more coat hangers or bath towels, they would cut us off and simply say that they would call us back, and then we’d have to wait a while until someone from reception called back to get our request.


VALUE


Nice property that does not come at a cheap price. Services that are not included in the room price also don’t come cheap. For example, we could not believe that you had to pay for a bucket of ice cubes…




IN SUM



It is really a lovely hotel, but contrarily to its promise, we did not get much rest during our stay there, as it was always quite busy and noisy. It was a major holiday though, so it was probably a unique situation and the hotel is probably much more quiet during the rest of the year. If we feel up to facing the pool police again, we might go back, but will be very careful to avoid weekends or school holidays. 


Room Tip: Choose a pool villa, but avoid weekends and holidays if you are looking for peace and quiet.

This is a great resort and we had a very relaxing time staying here for 5 days with a family of four.
The staff is friendly (although the level of English is not great, which makes discussing more complex issues a bit of a challenge) and the modern rooms are clean and comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is among the best I have encountered. Too bad the meals in the restaurant for lunch and dinner are overpriced.
This is a stylish resort that tends to cater to privileged local and international guests. If you are looking for some quiet time confined to the resort in its luxurious surroundings, this is definitely the place to go to.
Be prepared to be disappointed by the beach. As with many parts of Hua Hin, the beach is non-existent especially at high tide and jelly fish make it impossible to have a relaxed swim in the sea. The neighborhood of the resort is barren: nothing to do there. For restaurants, shopping or any other action you need to take the very convenient complementary shuttle bus into town.
A recommended very comfortable boutique resort, but personally I would not want to stay her longer than a week or so.....

Note to management: it is very annoying that some of your (international) guests find it necessary to reserve the best swimming pool sun beds and umbrellas by putting their towels on the seats very early in the morning and then only showing up around midday. You should not allow that: your resort is too stylish for that kind of behavior.

My wife and I spent one week in this hotel. We had the Horizon room at the fourth floor, the view was absolutely amazing, we could see the sea from the bed. The bathroom was spacious and the whole room was very clean, spacy and bright. The breakfast buffet had everything you could wish for. Everytime we got back to hotel from the city, there were some complimentary treats: fruits or baked goods waiting for us. The hotel is a few minutes drive away from the Hua Hin center, but there's a shuttle bus available that can get you to the clock tower or market village. Amazing experience altogether!

Husband and I stayed 2 nights in a pool villa. It was fantastic! Totally worth the price. Exactly like in photos but more. Rooms were well designed, clean, spacious and we loved the day bed in the room with pool views and private decking with access to the private pool.

This resort is divided into 2 sections, the main building with a pool, restaurants and other rooms then there's the pool village where we were. Access to this private pool is only for Pool and beach villa guests.

The staff are always accommodating and friendly. It really is the land of smiles here!

Room Tip: Get the pool villa, it really is worth it. Request for the room closest to the beach as you have und...

This is our second visit to Rest Detail and the quality remains. We are a group of 5 adults and 1 baby so we booked 2 beach village rooms. The rooms were nice, spotless, and spacious. The breakfast buffet quality was nice. The staffs were especially friendly and attentive. My mom forgot her shirt and within two hours, the hotel contacted us and send it to our home address.

The only negative this time was that we were not informed of the special price for the Thai travel event in 2014. We booked only two days before the event started but the hotel did not suggest us to wait to get the discount. Perhaps it was a misunderstanding.

Anyway, Rest Detail has become our favorite hotel in Hua Hin and we will definitely return!

This is a lovely hotel, rooms very comfortable and tranquil.
Calm white relaxing rooms with good attention to detail,
hotel small and private with great staff, fab breakfast with plenty of choice
And very fresh. Good happy hour at the bar... So all in all a relaxing stay.
The only real negatives would be the location,a little far out from centre,
They do offer bikes but not much too see unless you hit the main road.
This hotel does not have a beach which was a disappointment, just a seafront wall.
