A very lazy day today. Paul and Imogen went for a pre breakfast swim whilst Ella and I lounged around in bed. Breakfast was good – on a par with the Sheraton breakfast in fact, which is praise indeed. We all ate far too much including fresh waffles and loads of fruit and a proper latte (something which has …

... couples travelling Asia and it was comforting hearing their accents and their stories. We boarded the train and to our horror saw a squat toilet. On a moving train. What is this perverse circus act? Sitting down for a minute I started writing my post cards and then bang, power cut. So now we have a squat toilet, in pitch black, on a moving mode of transport. In that moment a beetle started crawling towards me as Nikita's arm rest broke off, what is life. Later on, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin

    Step back into the past


    When you arrive at this colonial style hotel, situated in the middle of Hua Hin, but directly on to the beach, you feel you are stepping back in time - not as far as the facilities or service is concerned, but as relates to the environment - it is almost colonial. When we stayed there recently there were number of vintage cars parked outside the front door.

    In all respects, this is a wonderful hotel, superb food, attentive staff, immaculate service, and if you are a golfer as we are - an excellent golf desk, taking care of everything, even packing up the clubs for our return journey.

    Wondeful hotel


    My wife and myself find this hotel wonderful we have returned every year the rooms are very comfortable the staff friendly and warm the breakfast buffet is a feast the 3 pools are fantastic there is plenty to entertain us during the day and a wonderful white sandy beach in front of the hotel we have stayed here 4 times and is the only hotel we have returned to more than 1 time it is excellent we have never had 1 complaint about anything a real 5* hotel with great facitities relaxing grounds good food lovely swimming pools all in all our favourite beach hotel this is a hotel which we recommend to our friends and familys who visit us because everybody who stays here comes back

    I can't say that; this is excellent hotel!


    I reserved this hotel for my wife.

    Excellent as usual


    We have stayed here several times - one of the very few places we keep going back to. Everything was excellent again. The deluxe rooms are spacious and well serviced. The staff are extrmely pleasant and helpful. The restaurant is superb. Breakfast is a feast of variety and quality, and the Thai buffet diner at the poolside, with Thai music and dancing was brilliant and great value. We will return!

    This place is amazing!!


    The sofitel is in a great central location and set in beautiful gardens that hide the hustle and bustle of hua hin. We spent most days by the garden pool which was really quiet and peaceful. There are other pools for families which are shallower etc.

    The service is fantastic and the room was fine although it seemed a bit dark due to all the wood.

    Beautiful resort


    I truly enjoyed the Sofitel Resort Hua Hin. The lovely hotel is beautiful and the grounds are whimsically manicured. The trees and bushes have been shaped into all different animals. We had two deluxe rooms with large balconies. The rooms are elegant, well-appointed and the service is good. This is a colonial hotel that has been kept up very well. Our rate was about US$135 per room including tax and breakfast; an excellent deal considering the level of this hotel. It's much more interesting than say the Hilton or Hyatt. Plus the location is excellent for wandering around this relaxing seaside town.

    Just like paradise!


    We are dealing here with the Sofitel hotel and not the central village, although the central village is a part of the Sofitel hotel, it can't compare to the hotel.

    Lovely Hotel


    The Sofitel at Hau Hin was very nice, but a long way from Bangkok (3 hours) although we booked a sea view and they gave us a garden room. the hotel was set on a very busy beach with horse riding, massage and food all thrown in. I recomment the beach massage very cheap. The hotel itsself was very pretty with beautifull gardens. The food was excellent, especially the afternoon tea (tradional English). The entertainment on Christmas Eve and New Year Eve was supurb as was the food, our only complaint here was they spent days setting it all up in the hotel grounds which made it very noisy (banging etc). After the Tsunmi they did there best to ensure we had a good time. The Tailor at the hotel Classic Collection gets five stars, we had loads of clothes made, they were patient, understanding and very reasonable, everyone has commented on the items we have worn. This was out fourth visit to Far East, it is real value for money

    A world class hotel in every way.


    From the time you arrive in the beautiful lobby and to your wonderful room with French doors to your very own private garden balcony you are taken care of in every way. 3 pools to chose from and shopping as soon as you leave the gates. The beach was nice too. I will be back for sure. I was originaly at the Marriott, but checked out becuase it was old and way to many kids. The only other Sofitel I have ever stayed at was the Beverly Hills Sofitel. What a great hotel chain it is.

    Not much to complain about!


    WHY THE SOFITEL? We actually had a small house in Hua Hun, that a friend of ours lended to us. But it was not really what we expected (the beach is not very nice in Hua Hin, our house was far from the sea, and so on.)
