Wora Bura Hua Hin Resort & Spa
What We Love
- An elegant five-star resort just moments from a white-sand beach, including breakfast and extrasThe aroma of Thai herbs in the blissfully tranquil Wora Spa
- Dining on the open-air terrace of Rak Talay Restaurant
- Taking a short stroll to Cicada Night Market to try the local street food
What To Know
- The hotel runs a free shuttle in and out of central Hua Hin
- There's not a ton of places within walking distance, but it is located across from the popular Cicada market
- WiFi is poor
Sharp lines and conceptual furnishings have been eschewed for a more romantic, old-world aesthetic at the five-star Wora Bura Hua Hin Resort & Spa. Though this luxury retreat was opened in 2005, it’s reminiscent of 19th century Thailand, with intricate architectural details and a peaceful garden setting.
There are 77 rooms, a choice of restaurants and bars, and a quiet spa where Thai and Western techniques are fused. Relax by the freeform pool or under the shade of a frangipani tree with a good read in hand. Should you wish to get sand between your toes, you won’t have to wander far; the powder-soft Hua Hin Beach is visible from the resort and a mere few minutes’ walk away.
How to Get There
Beautiful hotels, service is unique and incredible. I went there with my family. The beach is stunning and nice sand. The breakfast is awesome. There is a kid pool and kids club thats very suits my child.
Wora bura never crossed our mind initially but well, we gave it a try as it seemed to have nice photos and good reviews.
From my personal experience, I can say that out of 10, I would say a 6. I was happy with the room / pool and overall facilities. But, what I felt that it was unpleasant was
1. Bar at the pool had no staff available. I was there around 5pm which was a happy hour period. But I didnt see anyone at the bar. People were looking at where / how to order drinks. I finally found one guy whom I believed that he was not in charge at the bar as he was trying to take order but he had no idea about the drinks we ordered. Well, thanks for his services. It took a while until the drinks arrived.
2. The staffs at morning buffet restaurant were not trained and quite no clue. This was upset me!!!!
Our trip was unplanned so we just booked our room via agoda the day we checked in. And our booking didnt include breakfast. I was fine with that as I think that I can order a room service and had a breakfast in my room. Well, before I went to the restaurant, I called a front desk and asked whether we could order A La Carte and the front desk said I could. So, I walked to the restaurant and when I arrived around 8am, a lady who was at the front of the restaurant said I cannot order A La Carte. I had to wait until 11am. And, I said what about a room service, she said I also had to wait until 11am. I told them that I asked the front desk before walking here and they said I could order A La Carte bababa and then the lady was asking other 2 senior colleagues to come out and talk to me. One of the ladies said that room service started at 6-7am (not sure) and I asked her, can I order and eat here at the restaurant since I already walked here???? She seemed to confuse and kinna say sth like room service has to be in the room. I said OHHHH ok, and then I asked where the food is cooked for room service? She said same kitchen as morning buffet kitchen.
I said since I already was here, I saved your time of walking / delivering the food, Can i eat here and you could charge me same price as room service (if any different)??? She said they did not have menu for room service.
OMGGGG, it was too difficult to just have a breakfast where we were willing to pay whatever. After they talked, they were ok to let me eat at the restaurant. But you know what, I had no mood to eat anymore. It was too hard and it made me feel like I was begging to just have a breakfast. And staffs were not that pleasant and felt so confused and didnt know how to handle it. They probably did the same thing everyday and no idea how to handle new tasks / questions.
BTW, I have a 2 year old baby with me and she just needed to quick breakfast and she was hungry. And, I didnt like eat a buffet in the morning and the buffet line was not worth the price.
Eventually, I took my family somewhere else (another 5 star chain hotel) and it was nice there as always.
Anyway, I enjoyed my deserts (room service) my first night. It was good.
Wora bura is truly a enchanting place to be in . The location is awesome with best hospitality in the town ,staff is quik and cordial.pool area is beautifully located alongside the beach.overall a great experience.
I stayed there back in 2016, 31st May. Sea was clean. Weather was ideal. Room was comfortable but my 6months baby cried whenver we went to use toilet due to window of washroom in bedroom.
Food served in breakfast was good and plenty. The standard of the food served by resort's resturant was also good. Swimming pool is the best of all view of sea from it was amazing.
When I booked this Hotel, I was expecting a great experience. I am travelling for more than 20 years in Thailand/Asia. We booked 5 nights and were looking forward to stay there. But......unfortunately, the first impression at arrival and check in was immediately bad: unfriendly staff, no help to carry the luggage on the stare case...
The breakfast is so so with a small choice. When you finish your meal, wait 10 minutes before stuff is removed from your table.The staff is only focused on asking you the room number. At the swimming pool, there is a bar where it it takes you 20 minutes (!!!) to get a cocktail (only 1 staff is there and has to go to the restaurant to get your order!). Happy hours from 4PM to 7PM but again you can wait 10-15 minutes to have staff on site. When leaving for check out at 5PM, we called the reception to get staff for luggage (the way to the room is long). After 10 minutes, a guy came but went away for another 5 minutes, so we went by ourselves, faster :-). Seems that no management is on site. Honestly, the badest experience I ever experienced in Thailand. So many hotels and resorts in Hua Hin. Good looking place but terrible customer service!!!
