Stayed at the Centara Grand Beach Resort Hua Hin at the long Weekend during August with family and friends. What a great hotel where old meets new. The hotel is simply brilliant with great service good rooms and great value. The hotel is very colonial in its design but with all the modern features you need. With four swimming pools which includes the silent pool the amenities for all are excellent. The restaurants both in be main building and down by the beach have a wide selection of Western food with some Thai selections. The rooms are well furnished and suitable for families of four. Worth getting a room with a garden view as the gardens are delightful. The hotel is in the centre of the town and close to shops and bars. This has to be my favourite hotel as a retreat from Bangkok. Back in November. Simply brilliant with great memories. Well done Centara.

We have stayed at The Centara for the last 3 years now. Every time our holiday was perfect. It's very hard to pick fault with this place. Staff are wonderful and very hard working, rooms are spacious and comfortable and food is great. We have been researching for our next holiday and felt we should try somewhere different. We collected brochures for The Madlives, The Caribbean, Southern Asia. We did find a few places that looked suitable possibilities, but we kept thinking about this place and the people we have befriended in the town over the last few years. We have made our decision just booked our holiday for next year. We will be back in this beautiful peaceful haven we call our second home. Nowhere else in the world could meet our expectations like this place does. Keep up the great work there. You all do an amazing job and deserve all the recognition you get .

Just simply the best way to spend time in Hua Hin. I stayed in a basic room which was stunning. Old wooden colonial style yet very modern in repair. Awesome bed, great bathroom, large balcony. Good WiFi throughout the Hotel. The service from the staff was very friendly and it was my 50th birthday when I was there and out of the blue, a birthday cake was placed in my room on my birthday, how great is that? The breakfast was one of the best I've seen in a Hotel. The pool area was nice and the beach was right at the edge of the Hotel. The Hotel is literally a 5 min walk from the town centre but set right back from the road so there is never any noise in the rooms. Stunning!

Wow! Think that is an understatement this place is a 5 star hotel for a reason it is a very special place. You arrive and are greeted by the friendliest most helpful staff who give you the most delicious drink on arrival. Nothing is too much trouble and the little touches just make it even more special. Really can't speak highly enough about this place and will definitely be going back! 👌😁

This was our first experience to Hua Hin and the Centara was highly recommended and we were not disappointed. We booked a deluxe pool villa and on arrival a lovely lady called Pranee advised us we had been upgraded to a premium deluxe pool villa, it was simply stunning. Pranee and her staff were lovely, friendly and helpful as well as the staff at breakfast etc. The food, cocktails and accommodation was excellent. We loved the Centara so much that we have booked to go the same time next year. If you want first class resort and luxury it is worth paying slightly extra.

Put simply, a great hotel. We are just back from 2 wonderful weeks. If you are booked in, settle yourself, you've chosen well. The rooms are very well appointed. Great bathrooms, comfortable beds, great views of pools or gardens. We had a slight issue on first day but it was so well handled by a young woman called Pranee, it in no way took away from a wonderful experience. We had booked into the club class without really knowing the benefits. This was well worth the money. Club class entitles you to your breakfast in the club area either indoors in the small (air conditioned) lounge or outside overlooking the garden. Club offers free tea, coffee and canapés for most of the day. Nice soup, bread and nibbles at lunch time and free cocktails, beer and wine from 5.30pm to 7pm. The staff in Club are wonderful. The 3 pool areas in the complex are very well looked after. Towels and beds are of great quality. Pool staff excellent. The beach is close by and great for walking. There are 4 restaurants on site and all are also excellent. We really enjoyed this hotel. Excellent standards, with polite and very helpful staff. What more would you ask for? Simply great. For the golfer. The hotel arranges outings to a local course. Enjoy.

If you are looking for one of the most beautiful hotel at the best location, look no further. It's a historic hotel with only two stories but so well maintained so you don't have to worry that it will be too old. The landscape has made this hotel arguably the most beautiful hotel in HuaHin. The staff who have been working here for a long time take prides in what they do and it shows. Your presence make them happy and their smiles make you feel welcome.

This was our second stay at the Centara and we were not disappointed. We were in the Lotus Suite with Club benefits, all of which were of a very high standard. The staff were as efficient and friendly as they were last time and nothing was too much trouble. One thing we did not experience on our last visit were the number of children/ adults using inflatable toys in the Colonial pool. There is a childrens' pool and they should be told to use it and leave the other pools to their usual peace and tranquility. There is a sign in the jacuzzi stating "no children under the age of 12", but again, this was ignored. If you have rules, make sure people adhere to them. Apart from those tiny niggles, we had a most enjoyable stay and it was especially good to catch up with friends from Yorkshire whom we had met there last year. Thank you Centara, particularly Jan and Apple for your assistance.

We have just got back from a 9 night stay in a premium deluxe pool villa at the Centara Grand in Hua Hin. It was a welcome sight after a very busy and full on 4 night break in Bangkok. The villas are separated from the main hotel by a road and our first villa backed onto this. Unfortunately we did experience some problems with noise in the early hours of the morning but staff were able to move us to a different villa sited a little further in to the villa complex and this was no longer an issue. The accommodation was superb, a large airy bedroom, big bathroom with separate vanity area with wardrobes, a separate lounge with sofas (can be converted to beds) with TV, an additional shower and toilet and the outside area with spacious deck, sala and the pool. This level of room comes with 'The Centara Club' facilities and we would highly recommend this as it included breakfast at the villa complex pool, coffee and tea all day at The Club, coffee, tea and snacks at lunchtime, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and canapés and numerous other benefits too many to mention. Staff are a credit to the hotel and we especially say a huge thank you to Daeng at Suan Bua for looking after us so well (fingers crossed she gets the gold medal at the barista competition in Bangkok this year). The hotel is well located, taking only a couple of minutes to walk to numerous shops and restaurants and the night market. All in all, what's not to like - fabulous accommodation, wonderful staff, brilliant location, superb facilities. Go visit them, you won't be disappointed.

I'll start with who we are so you can see our perspective. We are in our early 50's and are not into extreme night life (AkA Kuta @ 2AM) more than once a trip. Centara Hua Hin is one of the original 'Holiday' hotels about 2 hours south of Bangkok on the beach in the heart of Hua Hin. From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed everything was excellent. The staff were friendly, courteous and very efficient. We stayed in a Pool Villa which was very reasonably priced (less than a reasonable hotel room in Australia). An additional bonus of a Villa we had all day tea / Coffee, afternoon 'high tea' and afternoon cocktails (5 - 7) which included significant delicious hors d'oeuvres. If we were going back to Thailand this is far better than the other obvious holiday destinations most people chose. If you are looking to relax, this is the place to do it.
