Spread across 14 acres, the burnt umber of the teak pavilions at Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa contrasts with the green-blue lily ponds, the fuchsia bushes and the blue Gulf of Thailand beyond the white sand beach. The alfresco lobby features a colorful tapestry, ornately carved teak lanterns, polished wood floors and oversize furniture. After dark, tiki torches light up the walkways connecting the lagoon area and pavilions to the seven on-site lounges and six restaurants, which range from classic Italian to contemporary Thai.
Bed and Bath
The sleek template of the public spaces extends to the 187 rooms, which feature sweet teak and reed furnishings, high ceilings and a wall of floor-to-ceiling sliding windows opening onto a private patio. Traditional Thai silk adds pops of color to an otherwise soothing nude palette. Premium Sea View Rooms have the bonus of jetted outdoor tubs, and the enormous Anantara Suites have arched teak ceilings, dining areas and double-size verandas overlooking the lush gardens or the Gulf of Thailand. Bathrooms are done in dark wood and chunky stone, and some feature giant stand-alone tubs.
The resort is surrounded by five distinctive gardens created by renowned landscape architect Bill Bensley, and they provide the right mix of exotic flair and natural privacy. The beach is just steps from the resort, but it’s worth noting that Thailand’s mainland beaches lack the postcard-perfect wow factor of tropical islands such as Koh Samui and Phuket. Anantara resorts, however, are about more than just beach time, and the Hua Hin offers a long menu of activities, from instruction in Muay Thai to group elephant polo lessons. The spa offers traditional Thai treatments in an open-air pavilion.
How to Get There
Me, my family and close friends has been staying in Anantara Resort since it opened (different name then) decades ago. We especially admire the tasteful Thai decors and design, the well kept green environment in the garden and surroundings - old trees shrubs, the truly unique Thai theme through out the resort, the courteous staff, high quality foods especially the buffet breakfast, the room decor/design details etc. However, end of November (last month) we went through Hua Hin and stopped for the buffet breakfast and were extremely disappointed of the quality and the way the buffet breakfast layout plan was - confusing! We also noticed the plants around its pond by the Rim Nam restaurant has been removed and became more concrete, the non-existing of the water lily in the pond with little fish and water greenery. The green between beautiful Lobby along the bar going down to Rim Nam restaurant has also disappeared. It saddens us that the current General Manager seems to not appreciate the natural and green unique environment this resort has been renown for..... With the climate change and all, we thought he should encourage as well as try to maintain/protect the natural environment in this resort rather than destroying them! The staff has been very efficient, kind and conscientious in providing memorable service from the concierge/front office through out.... Thank you!
We have always highly recommended our friends/family who visiting Thailand that Hua Hin especially Anantara should be included on their place-to-stay/visit but now we have had second thought.....
I stayed at this hotel with my wife for 2 nights in Junior Lagoon view room. Staff were excellent; extremely polite & helpful!! The room were beautiful, clean and full of amenities. Here is some advice to the hotel to improve about the internet wifi connection and cleanliness around the lobby area but it's okay for us. Thank you Mr.Lee for everything. Your smile is so radiant, hope to see you soon :)
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is considering going stay. I will never forget and will be returning very soon!

It's a beautiful hotel. The Club lagoon is a haven of peace and tranquility. What stood out most was the excellent customer service led by the manager Jean-Pierre and his staff. They expertly resolved an issue that we had which made all the difference to our stay.
