Reviewed December 3, 2012

We stayed here for a week a fortnight ago and had an amazing time! So relaxing and indulgent.
Positives:
As mentioned by people before the maid and pool boys were lovely and I really can't fault the service at all.
Breakfast has a fantastic variety and we stuffed ourselves daily - total bliss!
Even though some people had an issue with the road betwen the pool and the beach - we really didn't notice it and it's really quiet.

Slight negatives:
The gym could do with an update or two. The treadmill and cycles in particular could do with being replaced - the treadmill switched itself off twice during a run and the cycles have a grinding sound as you cycle.
Check in - make sure that your travel agent makes it clear you will be arriving early if want to avoid waiting - we were left hanging out in the bar for an hour after a 13 hour flight and 4 hour tarnsfer.
Return transfers - Don't believe them when they say pick up at 730am to get to the airport for a 1.30pm flight. The toll system creates enormous traffic jams and we spent at least an hour crawling on the 'express' way. A very stressful end to a holiday. I should have insisted on the 630 pick up I wanted.

Facilities outside hotel:
Tthe massage people on the right are really great and 300 baht for 90mins is a total bargain - just make sure you have anti mosquito spray on if you are having a massage at dusk as you are essentially a captive meal for insects then!
Hiring a taxi to hua hin is 700 baht and 30 mins journey
Theres is a Tesco in market village for all major shops and cheap clothing (flip flops etc). Market Village also has an extensive food court which could be handy.
Make sure you have a fresh fish meal at a restaurant on a pier or in the night market
Tthe Cicada night market is a more civilised affair that the night market in centre of town. It has a craft and art focus, food is bought on a voucher system - great variety and tasty. Reasonable too. We were pretty stuffed on £10. Friday- Sunday evenings.
If you're feeling brave, hire a moped. 150-250 baht depending on motor size.
A short trip down the coast takes you to a forest park and cool temple. If you want a decent beach as opposed to the one opposite the hotel, there is also one there.
We took our moped on the long trip to some Outlet stores north of Hua Hin (FN outlet) and north of Cha Am (Premium Outlet). Both are worth a trip if your bottom and nerves are up for it.

Restaurants outside the hotel:
The restaurant after windy bar (with a boat masthead outside) is quirky and service is good. Food is reasonable.
The Very good rewstaurant is in fact ok. Great free meal ending - fruit and sticky rice. Yum.
The Good view restaurant - go early to get a table with a good view which we never managed. The food is great, probably the best outosde the hotel but service is dreadful. Prepare to be patient (Not one of our skills)
The Thai Restaurant in hotel. Amazing flavours, no MSG, divided by region, a real experience, if you only go once then save it for the last day so the other restaurants nearby aren't ruined by comparison because this is the best we've tried

Dear Kschlenzka,

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review with loads of suggestions from your recent visit. I'm really glad that you tried everything in and around the resort and I'm sure the F&B team will be happy to hear that you enjoyed the resort Thai restaurant the best! It's great eating your way around Thailand in that restaurant - you can try things you don't usually find on a typical Thai menu.

I'll share your comments with the rest of the team for their information and action where necessary. We have some resort enhancements planned in the near future so come back and visit us again when you are ready for a chill out and relax again!

Wishing you Season's Greetings!

Regards,

Jamie Crisp
Director of Sales

Relax, clean and comfortable resort in Hua Hin.
The staff there are friendly and helpful.
But it's a little bit far from Hua Hin town.
Around 30 mins travel by Resort shuttle bus to town.
All in all, Six Senses Hideaway Hua Hin is excellent for relaxation.

Very nice rooms, little details and resort. The breakfast was actually one of the best selections in Thailand and also very well presented. The staff are freindly and have a lovely comfortable uniform (the maintanance staff all look like Bob The Builder :)). Main criticism are the TV's in the room are a good 10 years old, our TV's volume didnt work at all, by the time we got back to the room it was too late to do anything about it. The bath / shower is of a standard home pro type and health and safety nightmare...especially if you have a 7 month pregnant wife! The resort is also very dark at night time, it rained when we were there so it was also very slippery (I went flying on my &^%$ and trashed a pair of white linen pants). However, we would definetely go back again (after the baby), there are lots of facilities there including tennis courts. The food was very good and service excellent, as I said, just some silly design flaws.

Dear AdamBKK290,

Thank you for taking the time to drop us a line. I'm happy that you had a good time. I will be sure to pass your comments on to the team. I keep promising but new TVs are on the way, it's just that we need 300 so it's a big order to place. But... coming soon for sure!

Congratulations with the birth of your baby and we look forward to welcoming the whole family back in the future.

Warm regards,

This was our first visit to Thailand but will not be the last. We found the hotel to be lovely. We had a lovely seaview room which was close to the pool and the restaurants. The staff at the hotel were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. We got waited on hand and foot which meant for a lovely relaxing holiday helped by constant sunshine. We had opted to go all inclusive and were pleased we did and we really got our money's worth. Unlike some all inclusive holidays the only restriction was that the beer was local but fortunately Chang is very good and we could eat in any of the restaurants. The buffets on a Thursday and Saturday were particularly good. Our thanks go to all the staff without exception who made our holiday so enjoyable and were so friendly and helpful. Hopefully we will see you again next year.

Thank you for your lovely review and I am happy to read that you had a great time in the resort. I'll be sure to copy your mail to all of the teams to pass on your thanks. Not only do the Sea View Studios have a walk in shower, so do all of the rooms in that building as well as all 95 Pool Villas!

Our second visit to this hotel. Everything about the place is calm and unhurried. The surroundings are wonderful, the plants are amazing.
Get on a bike and explore.
A third visit is planned for next year. Hopefully with the same 35c and sunshine every day :-)

i would not say this place is 4 star it is very dated the rooms are very nice but very old style tv bath needs to be updated the pool is very nice but the decking and sunbeds need replacing. It is over 30 minutes drive to take you to Hua Hin and you have to pay 400 barts per person return where a taxi is the same price. Had a fire in one of the kitchens when we were there and the staff where very unsure what to do they where lucky the roof did not catch fire. The bech is across the road however it is very rocky and difficult to get on to. Quiet place staff helpful pool staff do not do a lot just stand and watch do not appear to clear away plates and glases just clean your sunglasses. The breakfast very good all fresh and home baked bakery

Dear dale w,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay. I have passed all of your comments to the various departments for their review. We have the intention to completely replace the pool decking however it will mean closing the entire pool area so will likely reserve this for low season.

Thank you for your comments though, it gives us a good indication in which areas we are not meeting expectations.

Warmest regards,
