I know everyone has differing opinions but it always amazes me when I see very negative comments about this hotel. We are here again for the third year in a row and it feels like coming home. It's comfortable, everyone remembers you and greets you warmly. So many guests here return year after year. Personally having stayed at other hotels...

Our third visit to this hotel. We just love the tranquility, colonial style, the beautiful gardens and the service. A 5 star hotel where you have a feeling of history but still all you need expect in a moderne facility. Favorite .

This has traditionally been our favourite hotel in Hua Hin but unfortunately the standard of service is slipping. On our first evening we ate at the Coast Restaurant and the waitress was rude, bordering on being racist. Several times, my wife (who is Thai) thanked the waitress when she brought something to our table and not once did she respond...

Under normal circumstance this place would be a 5 star review. We booked a pool villa 8 months ago for 5 nights. After an interesting drive down from Bangkok (hint - don't hire a car, arrange for a transfer instead) we checked in. The hotel is lovely and the room itself is well appointed with the amazing inclusion of our...

After a 13hr flight and a 4.5hr drive out of Bangkok this was the best place to arrive at. The staff were amazing as was the golf cart transfers to our pool villa.

A great hotel with plenty of facilities for all the family with the added bonus of the beach adjoining the hotel grounds. The gardens were superb with wonderful animal and bird topiary.

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, and 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
