... We continue walking along the corridor, the darkness occasionally punctuated by a splash of color caused by the sun shining through red Perspex walls that indicate access to a courtyard swimming pool located on the other side of the Berlin Wall.'s big brother. We arrive at our "Pool Villa", number 702. Okay Joe I'll stop calling it a room. It is a 260 sqm.

... about 2:30pm, so I had missed alot. Although as you can see from a couple of shots there still was a wide range of seafood to be had. Lots of dried shrimp, squid, whitebait and other seafood. Nice looking fresh fish. I have never seen so many different types of prawns before. Bamboo bowls of steamed fish. Have a look at the bowl full of large beetles. The lady told me these are water beetles that come out after the rain. They catch them, crush them up and when you add it to the ...

We checked out of our hotel and caught a taxi to the South Terminal Bus Station. Deciding to take an air-conditioned bus to Hua Hin, we figured it would be a decent ride; only three and a half hours. Air-conditioned bus...it was an old, decrepit-looking bus, figuring we would be lucky to make it, we boarded anyways. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aleenta Resort Pranburi Hua Hin
I love Aleenta. I love everything about it, its uniqueness may not be for everyone. No TVs in room, no children policy. It gives me a chance to calm down and reconnect with my partner with no remote control excuse. The iPod and iDock is a great addition to the experience. We spent time on the hammock, eat, drink, sleep, lay by the beach, talk and recommect. The attention to detail is unbelievable, the most unique turndown service and thoughtful gifts. I guess your vacation is what you make it to be, Aleenta provides a perfect backdrop for me to paint mine.
Quite, cosy and stylish small hotel. Rooms are not quite convenient; especially a bathroom with a shower, but all expiates a direct kind on the sea from a huge swinging open doors. But at me the impression was made, that in hotel there was a change of a management. As original style of hotel (has especially liked original hotel music for relaxing massage, cd with which I have bought for memory) showed some discrepancies. After hospitality and kindliness of three Thai hotels from which I have arrived, Aleenta - has brought some discord.
I agree with all of what was stated in the last review. Additionally, the rooms are dated and my "Suite" at the "Palm Villa", which I paid extra for, turned out to be just a room with a bed and two small chairs -- not a Suite and definitely not a Villa. Aleenta's website is deceiving. Most rooms don't have privacy either.
My wife and I were booked in to stay at Aleenta for three nights this week. We left after one night. This was the first time we have ever left a hotel early.
The best holiday period we have experienced for a long time, with authenticity and charm, great food and service, your feet in the sand and Michael Bubble playing in the background.
Don't miss this place and make sure you are one of the few previledged ones that can experience this unique hideaway...
By the way try the new Frangipani Wing...worth the splerge!
A wonderful quiet place for a romantic holiday. The rooms are a bit close for total privacy but I would highly receommend the place to unwind.
We just came back from a great escape in Thailand and what an experience it was. We stayed at the small and intimate Aleenta resort and we were blown away. The service was the best I have experienced in a long time and I have stayed at the Amanpuri in Phuket and Four Seasons in Chiang Mai. Attentive, luxurious, detailed and a feel of home made us want more and more.
We stayed at Aleenta May 2005 for 5 days and would highly recommend the property. It was a great experience from start to finish. Emails were replied to prompty and the staff at Aleenta were helpful and first rate. We stayed in a Pool Villa beachfront and loved the fact you could fling open the doors for indoor outdoor flow. No TV, Perfect, let's listen to some music provided by Aleenta. We watched a buddist wedding on the beach, fab. Had lunch in front of our villa, set up under an awning right on the beach, a candlelit dinner served beside our little private pool. Tapas on our last night for dinner on the beach by lamp and candlelight. We booked a package via the website and it was good value for money. The rooms were exactly as advertised, the property beautiful. We enjoyed the green lights of the squid boats at night on the horizon and watching the local Thai dig for clams on the beach. This is life. The restaurant was very good with a different menu every night. Good massage at the spa. Our only small niggle was a bit more communication was needed as to exactly what you got with the package but this was easyily solved by asking some questions. We hope to return again next year.
Aleenta is a small but intimate hotel. We stayed at the penthouse room. We were therefor 5 nights and over the Valentine weekend. I loved that every night we came back to the room, there was an oil burner going with their special 'facial towels' scent. On Valentine night, there were rose patels on the bed. Aleenta organised 'floating the lanten' on the beach, the most romantic thing I had ever done. We had dinner at 'our balcony' of our room under candlelights one night, really enjoyed it.
This wonderful 10 room luxurious boutique hotel is still a well kept secret. We stayed for 3 nights in Nov 2004 and could have easily stayed for a month. The rooms are all different and we would recommend the pool suites as they each have their own plunge pool. The restaurant serves wonderful food that is a fusion of East and West. There are no real organized activities, so relaxation is the main reason to stay here. The main hotel pool lacks shade but is never busy. The hotel offers wonderful massages and the service is exceptionally friendly as well as being efficient. The beach is not the best as the sand is not a beautiful white colour but there are no beach touts and the water is warm and inviting.
