Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Hua Hin
... Hotel just around the corner which looked alright. So we would move there Saturday. Than we went to find our bus or mini bus to either the airport where we could get our usual bus to Jomtien or a bus to Pattaya or Jomtien. It took us quite a bit to find it cause as we know by now the Thai have no idea where they live and where's what !! Oh well, they can't be perfect :-) We finally found one to Pattaya for 800 for 2, so we would get a taxi there to Jomtien. ...
... a separate spa/bath and 'rainforest shower'. The rainforest shower head is about half a metre square and recessed into the ceiling. The ceilings are around 4 meters high so when you have a shower everything within a 4 metre radius has a shower. If someone is having a shower no-one else can use the open area bathroom. Although there is another bathroom / shower / toilet in the other wing of the villa. I say other wing as the villa consists of two separate areas that are accessed only ...
... I was more than ready to leave. Mid day I managed to visit a temple with me best mate in camp - Danny. Was OK - we wanted to be blessed by monks but no one spoke English. Went to Tesco to get medication for me cold too! Trained MMA in the eve. Friday trained Muay Thai in the morn and that was me done. My cold was getting better. Of the night 11 lads joined me for leaving drinks and food in local bar. Even the owner - Yohann came. Was a great night ...
... US", but most of the time I can't get a picture in time. Luckily I did get one this week, and it is posted below. It was a woman riding a motorcycle (scooter) whilst simultaneously holding her baby in one arm. It's actually not uncommon to see at least 4 or 5 people on one bike, and there are always kids sitting in baskets or standing where their parents feet are. Sometimes there are even pigs on the back. I'm trying to find a record the most people on one bike. ...
... out train times and things. Finally decided that we didn't want to stay more than one night here, so tomorrow we're heading further south. This is definitely a Scandinavian charter town - quite a change after the far less touristy Kanchanaburi province.
Ended up having a super dinner at Moo Seafood Restaurant in the night market in town. A steamed snapper in lime & garlic. Yum!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa
The Hilton is a fantastic hotel filled with the most lovely staff I've ever encountered in a hotel. From the moment your bags are whisked away by a porter and you are given a warm towel and refreshing herbal tea, I was in bliss.
Upgrade to a suite if you can, but all the rooms look over the water. Great pool with waterslide for the kids or bar for adults. The kids club keeps the youngsters amused so that it doesn't feel like the deck chairs are overrun with kids. It has tennis courts, cinema, snooker tables, squash courts, gym etc.
Great restaurants, very cheap, in fact on a par pricewise with local run restaurants in the street.
And the massages! The spa is divine.
Also the room service and breakfast cannot be beaten. 3 rooms of food at breakfast.
There is no where else to stay at Hua Hin! Enjoy!
I've stayed in a lot of Hiltons in my time and I'd say this was by far the best I have been at. The hotel is in a good place in Hua Hin next to a lot of restaurants. The hotels rooms are really nice, large with good views, great showers and bath. The pool is excellant too.
I think the service in this hotel is one of the best and friendliest I've seen. They have activities going on around the pool all day and are really helpfull at organising excursions or activities around Hua Hin. I'm not sure there is much to don in Hua Hin during an extended stay but if you want to chill out by a nice pool for a couple of days I'd recommend this hotel highly.
Lovely Hua Hin
My daughter and I stayed at the Hilton in Hua Hin last month. The staff is very accomodating and receptive to any concerns one might have. The hotel is beautidully kept lovely lobby and grounds, nice pool and very convenient to wqalking around town. Only a couple complaints:
the mattress was very hard (subjective, I know) but the front desk took care of it the very next morning by putting a down mattress topper on top which made it much better.
the linens were very clean but SHABBY. My towels were completely ragged the hems out and not fitting a luxury hotel and the duvet cover was also on threadbare and on the ragged side.
We each had two spa treaments which were lovely. I would stay again. Hua Hin is a quaint little town with nice people everywhere.
Beautiful Resort with A1 Service
We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this resort and it was everything your previous reviews suggested. We had a pacific suite which was amazing with living area, huge bathroom and double terrace overlooking the pool and beach. The location is excellent (right on the beach) and within 2 minute walk of shops, restaurnats and night life. The staff could not have been friendlier and although we did not have children with us, it was great to see how they looked after them with all sorts of activities (they even had a special easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday). Breakfast had everything you could want and was top quality. Would definitiely return to this resort.
Great hotel, shame about the beach
We woud have rated this excellent if the beach was as good as those found on the islands in the South such as Koh Samui & Phuket.
The hotel accommodation was excellent, we opted for the Gulf Room which was almost double the size of a standard room. We had 2 balconies, a massive bed, a huge bathroom and decor was both contemporary and modern. Staff very friendly/helpful and breakfast which could be eaten outside was superb.
Location was spot on being close to everything including night market and excellent restaurants where we were eating out for £5 for the two of us, including drinks.
The only negative about this hotel was that the Germans were doing their normal thing and reserving sunbeds at sunrise!!
We had an excellent holiday and would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of going to Hua Hin.
The hotel was very tidy and had a modern look. The rooms were very nice and large. Especially the bed was extremely comfortable and the view from the balcony was outstanding. The maids cleaned up the rooms 2-3 times a day, which was occasionally a little bit too much. However, the flowers on the pillows were a pleasant surprise!
The hotel offers the best breakfast I've ever seen, and you just can't be unsatisfied after it. There are also pool-side and in-pool activities such as pool volley ball etc. The pool area is very cosy and the ocean is a footstep away. The hotel is also situated at a very central point and has many restaurants and shops in the vicinity.
As the destination is almost only about sunbathing and golf, this hotel is the excellent choice for a perfect holiday. I'm just longing to get there again!
Lincolnshire girls don't lie
I actually met the girl from Lincolnshire. She and her friend were in reception at the Hilton waiting to leave as we arrived. The restaurant she mentions as being the best she also recommended to us and she was absolutely correct. It is called "The Jasmine" and it is about a half a block away. The food and the staff there were superb (they even gave us gifts on our departure)but really that just about sums up most of Hua Hin......superb. A great little place with a laid back atmosphere right by the beach. The Hilton is ideally located close to everything. The staff there are wonderfully pleasant and the rooms are very comfortable. I hope to go back to the Hilton in October 2005 so if you girls from Lincolnshire happen to be there again, I think I might owe you a cocktail or two followed by dinner at The Jasmine ....see you around 7.00pm ?
Stayed in the Hilton Hua Hin for a week in early October 2004. What a wonderful hotel. The whole place is just so lovely to look at. The staff are amongst the most friendly in any hotel I've visited. The room was spacious and clean and they bring you bottled water every day which is quite rare - you usually get charged for it anywhere else!!
You can't beat the location - right on the edge of everything. No taxis or travelling makes a really relaxing holiday. It's great to be in the middle of the resort. As two girls on our own we didn't find the streets at all intimidating although it's not really a 'girly' place to go if you get my drift!!! But having said that it is a shoppers paradise if you know where to look!!!!!!
The weather was a bit mixed while we were there but when it wasn't so bright we just passed the afternoon having a foot massage/reflexology - heaven!!! Go on treat yourself at approx £4-£5 a go you can't go wrong!!
The coffee shop is well worth visiting, you can't beat chilling out with a good cup of coffee and the papers or better still popping onto the internet to catch up.
Food locally is superb, but I must say the worst meal we had was actually in the hotel, but it was the buffet night and we were quite late but we did feel that there wasn't much atmosphere in the restaurant. It's much better to get out and about. Unfortunately we found the very best restaurant on our last night - I adore Thai food what a treat!!
I would thoroughly recommend the cocktails during Happy Hour - the real thing!!
Very good hotel
We stayed twice in this hotel and we weren't disapointed both times. The rooms are very spacious and have a great bathroom with seperated bath and showercabin. All rooms have side seaview with big balcony. The rooms on one site are overlooking the pool and the town. The other site are overlooking the tropical garden of the sofitel hotel. We stayed at both sites and we liked the Sofitel side the most.
The restaurant offers in the morning a very lavious breakfast. Very, very much choice of everyting you like. We went to many hotels in South East Asia, but this breakfast will beat them all! At night they split up the very big breakfast area in a Japanese, Thai and Italian section. The price is high but also the quality. We did the Japanese (wich is cheaper then at home) restaurant and the Italian and both very good. Because the hotel is in the midle of town with a very great choice of cheap and good restaurants on walking distance we did not eat much in the hotel. Try the superb fish restaurants on the seaside,very good.
The hotel has a very big swimmingpool. The beach in Hua Hin can't compare with beaches on Koh Samui or other beaches, but has certainly it's charm. It is very quit and clean. We walked every morning for an hour of two on the beach and that was very relaxing. The only negative point on the hotel is that they don't have a beautiful tropical garden. They have a small piece near the seaside, but that's it! The rest is concrete around the pool.
We liked the hotel and it's surounding very much (that's why we stayed there twice) Hua Hin on it's self is very relaxing not the very chaotic scenes like Pattaya or Phuket.
A truely lovely hotel...
If possible opt for a gulf view room, bigger, better balcony with table and chairs and a better view. Room service choice is fab and cheap, as are the cocktails. Pool area is suberb, tiny point; can feel a bit crowded at times as the beds are close together and close to the pool. Wouldn't rave about the beach but then who needs it when the pool is so nice. But the spa made it for me... reasonably priced, and really something special. The decor, atmosphere, staff, treatments, couldn't come more highly recomended. Also I think its in the best location in comparison to any other resort. It literally backs on to the streets of Hua Hin so no taxi's or hassle, and its bargin central but remember to haggle... Loved it!
