Hyatt Regency Hua Hin
Travel Blogs from Hua Hin
Hua Hin is 200km south of Bangkok, the oldest beach resort, the former getaway and holiday destination for the aristocrats and royal families of Thailand. Its a 5mile beach with world class golf courses, fishing ports, of 5star hotels, Resorts and Spas, Thai restaurants and shops.
I personally love the old charm of Hua Hin, its quiet, not …
Nice and relaxed environement, hotel is 2 min from the beach. 2 story buildings of the hotel drowned in lavish green of palms, among the long swimming pools.
getting ready for the conference. delegations arrive, but not sure how many ministers will show up. it seems that india, probably the most important country, is playing its own game …
Today we have an early flight from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. We ordered the taxi to come pick us up at 5:30AM since our flight was at 7AM. I would say the only draw back is the location from everything else (which is a plus sometimes), but they wanted 500Baht for the pickup (it was only 400Baht from the airport on the way over). Anyway, can't really …
Spent time trying to improve our World Traveller Plus seating online. No joy. Drove to BKK airport in about 3 hours and checked in. Then joy of joys we got upgraded to business class following my efforts to plead and cajole. Nothing is quite as joyous as being able to sleep for 10 hours of a 12 hour flight. Arrived in London feeling almost human.
Flew from Yangon International to Bangkok on Thai. It all felt a bit boring after the excitement of Burma. Got picked up by Bangkok Limos ( www.bangkoklimos.org ) in a leather seated Toyota with real suspension and drove the two and a half hours to Hua Hin. I'm sure the car was just ordinary but it felt like a Rolls Royce. Stayed at the Hyatt …

I truly enjoyed the spa and my daily yoga sessions. The location is good, less crowded than the other part of the beach.The rooms are nice, clean and simple. The tub is perfect for two. The facilities are fantastic. The Thai restaurant is great for dinner and special occasions. The lounge/bar at the beach is great for afternoon cocktails.Hoping to be back soon!

Go with the regency club
We went at the Hyatt in january after the tsunami. We were supposed to go in Phuket. Even if it was a second choice the hotel was astonishing. We got a regency club room. it worth every penny. because alcohol is very expansive in thailand, the club is very nice because you have a 5 to 7 with all drink included and hors d'oeuvre. So Nice!!!. the service is 5 stars and cannot say enough because thai peoples are wonderfull. the pool is superbe and the food excellent. When you're there go to the monkey mountain and get a nice cheap massage on the beach.
Stayed Early Feb 2005 for 8 nights in a Regency Club room, with a balcony.
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Hua Hin. The hotel is spotlessly clean and we stayed in the standard rooms. The rooms could be a bit more luxurious but at the end of the day you are only there to sleep and shower. The grounds are superb and the main swimming pool is fantastic, set in beautiful tropical grounds with a water slide which blends in with the surroundings. The breakfasts are great but we didn't eat in the hotel at night. The downside is the distance to the town but for 100 baht, a tuc tuc can be hired and there are always plenty waiting. Although we arrived early in the morning, our room was ready and waiting for us and the hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. The other downside is drinks at the hotel are expensive. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't want to be in the middle of the town but if you want the nightlife within waling distance, then this isn't the hotel for you.
Regency Club is wonderful
We stayed one night in Bangkok before taking the hotel shuttle to Hua Hin. There were only two of us in the shuttle and it became our private limo. We arrive at the hotel with a welcome drink and private check-in at the Club lounge. We strongly recommend stay at the Regency Club wing for all the extras. The exclusive club pool and the club area was a retreat for us especially during weekend when the hotel was full of guests. The free cocktail at the Club lounge every evening was really enjoyable given the quality of the food and the wine. The breakfast next to the Club pool in the morning was also very relaxing. We also enjoyed playing chess or reading books with a cold drink at the Club lounge during the hottest part of the day. The services at the Club lounge was unbeatable.
After 4 nights in Bangkok (at the Peninsula) we spent a week in the Regency Club rooms with our 2 twenty something year old daughters. We were so disapointed when we were shown to our very basic rooms - one of my daughters described the furnishings as Travel Lodge standard. We were advised not to open the patio doors to the balcony after dusk due to the mosquitoes and the rooms are so very small without that extra space. My husband was woken by the sun pouring into the room at 5.30am through the flimsy blinds and threatened to leave the hotel immediately. We moved to a larger room with no balcony on the ground floor which had an additional layer of window covering for privacy and which helped to darken the bedroom slightly.
We arrived at the Regency after a superb stay in Bangkok, and were disapointed to find that the room we had booked was a twin at the rear of the hotel with no views (and we are a couple).
A refreshing change of pace from the hectic Bangkok...very low costa and yet its of the class of the Hyatts in Hawaii...great buffet, great people, ride horseback on the beach....and Hua Hin is a pretty interesting place as well..
Stay the first night at the Hyatt in Bangkok and then reserve the shuttle from Hyatt to Hyatt for the 2 hour ride...saves a lot in cab fare for sure...
Mostly Finns and swedes at the resort
Wonderful hotel. Rooms are really nice and spacious. We had a room that opened directly onto the pool river that meandered thru the grounds. Pool is fantastic with really comfortable lounges. Only downfall is that the drinks and food are pricey by Thai standards and more children than at most Thailand hotels. This is a lowrise hotel and much more attractive than the highrise hilton downtown.
What a relief
We stayed at this hotel in Jan 2005 after being re-routed from our favourite hotel in Phuket due to Tsunami damage.
I arrived pretty intent on not liking the hotel, bitter at not being able to stay in Phuket.
How wrong was i, the hotel was fantastic. The facilities and, in particular, the service by every member of staff was exceptional. It was also well worth the very little extra to upgrade to the Regency Club Rooms.
I can highly recommend this hotel.
Very poor childrens club
we were there this christmas 2004, a hotel with lovely grounds but one of the reasons we chose this hotel was because it boasted a fantastic childrens club for ages 3 years and up, well that is a joke. they do not have a clue how to look after young children. The activities they did have for children was in a room called the "cyber zone" which was a computer room, not a play room. They have now changed the age they accept children which was from 3yrs but now 4yrs , but in my opinion any activities they offer are suitable for much older children.
The service in all the hotels restaurants was awful, which is a real shame because the food was good when it finally did arrive. Apart from this the hotel has lovely grounds which you can not fault.
