WOW! What a beautiful hotel. The room was amazing, we had a Sky Pool Suite. There have been many comments about no sun getting in the room and cold water, ignore all these negative comments. Due to the heat in Thailand, it was a welcome break not to have the sun in the room and the water was lovely and cool for a refreshing dip. The staff are so lovely and helpful, the breakfast is fantastic. As for the sun loungers, there was no issue, there was always a couple somewhere to take and if you didn't like that spot a new place would pop up. We stayed for 6 nights beginning of April, and would definitely return on our next visit to HUA HIN. I give it 10 out of 10

Overall this is a lovely hotel. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and the design is quite clever considering the plot size and design. To address a few niggles that previous visitors have raised. Pools The main pool and individual room pools are not cold. It’s true that garden view pools don’t get any sunlight as the hotel is built facing to the side rather than the sea (as the plot is a rectangular shape). Sun loungers There are more than ample to go around. Not once in the 2 weeks we were here did we find anyone out at 6:30am reserving them as one reviewer seems to suggest! Nationalities There was a mix of people from all around the globe. However, there are some bits that need to be addressed to make this a true 5 star boutique hotel. Manager - you need to be much more present, every day. Service - is ok, but not excellent; it’s quite slow both in restaurant and bar. The pool service is poor, with us resulting to having to go to the Pool Boys to ask for service on several occasions. The extras - previously when we have stayed in Boutique accommodation in the Far East, what’s made for exceptional has been turn down service. Mosquito plug ins, mosquito coils, lemongrass oil burners etc. The final thing that niggled - the main restaurant changes from day time set up to night time set up at about 4pm (they lay table cloths etc) whilst this doesn’t prevent anyone from having a drink by the pool after 4pm, we were left with the impression that the staff would rather you didn’t....

From the moment we arrived until the day we regretfully left this wonderful hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the staff are welcoming, the service is outstanding, the facilities are excellent and the food is plentiful and delicious.The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have had. There was a meet the management cocktail evening and we had a seafood and meat barbecue buffet dinner afterwards. Both were excellent. We will recommend Cape Nidhra Hotel to anyone visiting Hua Hin.

Had 5 nights at Cape Nidhra. Loved the room. Whilst the suite and pool had no sun, we loved this on return from the beach at 33 degrees. Walking to the night market and to Bluport mall is a lot easier along the beach, far cooler and safer during the day regardless of the occasional jelly fish and millions of tiny crabs burrowing in the sand-no injury sustained! Our food was amazing both evening meal and breakfast which was simply the best. Evident that all the staff work so hard to cater for us lazy holidaymakers, thank you.

The rooms are very large and comfortable. Of course, the built in pools are the most attractive proposition, and it was really fun being able to take a dip without leaving the comforts of your room. Service is amazing, and so is the lounge, fitness facilities and pool. They pay attention to every detail from start to finish. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

Yet another five star hotel you'd think... So not true. The service and whole staffs attitude was outstanding. The bed was one of the best I've seen anywhere. Breakfast was truly good. The small hotel (~60 rooms) was fully booked but everything just worked without any queues or delays during our ten days stay.

We have just got back from 10 days, staying at the cape nidhra hotel. A very nice hotel, we upgraded to a pool, garden room, but wish we hadn't bothered as the sun never came over the garden or pool, due to the position of the hotel, so where we thought we would sit out and swim, we didn't as no sun, and the pool was chilly. We felt we were the only English at the hotel, it was predominantly German, so we did feel a bit out of place, heard no English voices. We also never saw or met a manager, that was mentioned in previous posts that the manager knew everyone's names!! The hotel was very clean and the pool boys were always helpful. We just felt Hua hin was very much busier than where we'd been in Khao lak, Phuket, you took your life in your hands to cross the road. Although it was good to have easy access to the night markets, and places to eat, some of the places looked a bit seedy! It did make us laugh, our last day, waiting to be picked up for the airport was the only early morning we did, at 6.30 am, people were putting towels on sun beds!

We only had 3 nights at this terrific hotel, but could recommend it wholeheartedly. Our suite was large and well furnished with a great bathroom. Food in the restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. Breakfast was top notch. The staff were uniformly excellent and helpful in any way possible. We loved it.

We were drawn to this hotel after reading a review on it in the Daily Telegraph and we were particularly attracted to it buy the smaller size, we don't like bigger hotels as they lose touch with the client. The Nidhra lived up to our expectations, I find it amusing that a recent review marking the hotel down came from the employee of a competitor, pity he didn't say who he worked for, no surprises there! And how daft to remark about clientele being overweight and over 55! Whats that got to do with anything, the hotel have no control over the weight or age of their clients and there were plenty under 55 during our stay. Wait till YOU reach middle age! We thought the breakfast were really good, plenty of choice and the orange (tangerine?) juice was great as were the smoothies. Liked the fresh fruit station, great idea and so healthy. Hot dishes were also to a great standard and good choice. Our room (223) was spacious and quiet, the plunge pool is a great way to cool down after a day on the beach. The one criticism I do have (and agree with the guy who moaned about the age of clients), was the room lighting. There didn't seem to be any logical on off position for the switches, I was constantly flicking them up and down to turn lights off or on. There were just too many switches. Shower was great and loads of hot water when you needed it. The main Pool was quite warm so didn't really help you cool off which was a pity as when we visited the sea was also very warm. The staff were very helpful and always polite, obviously well trained, unlike those in some other hotels I have stayed in and we do like the personal touch which you cant always get from other big chain hotels. Beach was great, sand very soft and clean, quiet at the point by the hotel but busier either side of it but far enough away not to be an issue. Sea seemed safe enough but there are some jelly fish at times but we didn't see any. Plenty of water sports but probably only suitable for the under 55's :-) Oh, and despite certain comments, I am well travelled and still thought this was a great hotel.

Just returned home following 12 wonderful nights stay at the Cape Nidhra Hotel and we wanted to highlight the excellence of this small luxury hotel. The hotel opened in 2010 and is a modern contemporary style with very high quality furnishings and finishes. The modest reception area belies this little gem. Prior to arrival, based on information from existing reviews on trip advisor, we sent requests to the Reservations Manager, Jurg, requesting both a king bed quiet room on a high floor. Jurg explained that he could not make any promises so we were delighted with his efforts to allocate us a room that met our complex requirements. We found ourselves on the fifth floor of block 1 in a sky pool suite with superking sized bed and, contrary to other trip advisor reviews, absolutely no traffic noise. The photographs on tripadvisor and other forums do not do justice to the quality of the accommodation at the Cape Nidra. The sky pool suites are classed as the entry level accommodation but do not disappoint in any shape or form. The first thing that strikes you is the space that is available in both the bedroom and bathroom areas together with the quality of the furniture & fittings. The high quality of the design and finish continues throughout all areas of the hotel. Tip: the library is worthy of a visit. The food served at breakfast is excellent including an egg station, cereals, cold meats and cheeses, artisan breads, huge range of juices, pastries, range of hot vegetables, rice and meat dishes etc etc... The hotel provides ample sunbeds in a variety of locations – poolside, garden, beach and oversized gazebo style adjacent to the pool. The location of the hotel is ideal, within easy reach of shops and, should you wish to explore options outside of the hotel, within walking distance there is a huge array of places to eat. Christian the General Manager was possibly the best manager we have ever met. He knew each and every guest by name and took time to chat with guests and ensure that the hospitality met individual needs and expectations. Furthermore, the team of staff at the Cape Nidra were without exception friendly, very efficient, polite and keen to ensure that guest expectations were exceeded. Throughout our stay we heard only positive feedback and high praise for the Cape Nidra, in fact a number of UK guests joked that despite trying to find fault with the hotel they had completely failed. The Cape Nidra has a number of sister hotels in Thailand and we overheard numerous guests commenting that, based on their stay at the Cape Nidra, they were hoping to make reservations at the sister hotels.
