Great place to stay. No one was there due to low season so had the pool and place to ourselves. Room Internet was good but only allows 2 devices. A bit stupid for a resort like this. Grounds were very lush and tropical. Didn't try any of the food because it was way too expensive. This is Thailand not Europe ! Reception were not very helpful after a long trip. We arrived early but had to wait for our room... over 2 hours.... yet the rooms were all empty. Not customer focused at all. Resort close to small village where there are plenty of good thai places to eat for good value.
We had booked B&B but after a long flight i arrive at the hotel to be told it is just room only.... The offer when we booked was actually free B&B i was so tired i couldn't be bothered to argue at the time thought i would sort it in the morning. The next day i go to the desk and after trying to explain (with great difficulty) they wanted £15pp for breakfast so we left it and decided to venture out and eat breakfast and found a lovely place in the village about 10 minutes away called J&K and that came to about £8 for both of us! The hotel was very clean and you couldn't fault the hotel and how polite the staff were but i felt like we were just a number where i have been to hotels previously where they know your name but there was none of this and the hotel was extremely large. There was only one restaurant open at the time called Saskuna which had great portions but got a bit tedious after a couple of days but the price was responsible but again no English speakers so everything took quite a while to try and explain. The hotel is in the middle of no where, there is a village about 10 minutes away but nothing really open. We did find a great 7to11 at the bottom where everything was so much cheaper than the Hotel Shop which brings me to my next point. The hotel shop is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and this tends to be when the hotel is full of Thai People holidaying there. We caught a taxi to Hui Hin night market which was full of tourists and you can get some great bargains and lots to eat etc the only bad points being small children begging which broke my heart and also English men with Small Thai Girls which made me VOM! We also went to Cha Am Night Market which is once a week but that is huge and mainly food. Taxis are very cheap but don't get them from hotel as they are twice as expensive as the rank outside the hotel. The rooms in the hotel are large and have everything you want even toothbrushes etc are supplied but the air con has a mind of its own. The pool is very large and very warm and there always seems to be plenty of sun loungers, The hotel also supplies pool towels. The beach isn't great the sand is hard and the sea looks dirty but we were warned that it is full of jelly fish so we never went into the sea. There is a restaurant just down the beach called the sea breeze so we ate there quite alot as the drinks were half the price than at the hotel and the food was great. I wouldn't go back but plenty of people do.
Very poor standard of service, language problem, non existent room service, below par air conditioning and walk a mile rooms from lift lobby. Dining options are limited as there not good restaurants either in this hotels or close by.
I went with my family for 2 night stay. I arrived a bit early before check in time. But not a problem as we would like to have lunch anyway. I asked the bellman to keep our 2 bottles of fresh milk for my son in the fridge: it needed to be cold. The bellman left them outside with our luggage : you can imagine for the hot weather by the beach, until we finished lunch. The room was pretty clean, but we found the broken glass (this is serious as I traveled with my little 3.5-year old son). I wrote the note for maid to replace the new glass, but they just took it out and without any apology. If you book the superior room - no bathrobe. Breakfast Buffet was full of choices....but no taste : plain / pale / and cold. We had to eat outside..even my son did not touch anything but juice. But the good thing was the pools ---- very large pools --- and nice beach And the best was Peppina by the beach....staffs were very helpful --- 5star Service --- Good food - delicious and fresh..... End of the trip...a man might be a manager farewell us ---- nice touch but not sincere
l stayed here with my 2 sons for 11 days. Best things were the pools and the New Manager Ben was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were very clean and serviced every day with lovely friendly staff. Mid range things were the rooms are a little outdated, beach was ok. Breakfast was ok, but always the same. The internet was sometimes slow or not there. Worst things was the Gym is hopeless, very small with only 2 machines of the 4 working. The Italian Restaurant is far too Expensive and uses MSG, so only ate there once. It is too far away from anywhere and you have to catch the shuttle bus from the Hotel that only leaves 3 times a day for 100 BHT one way. per person or a taxi that costs 350 BHT one way. There is a little village 10 minute walk away with a lot of little restaurants to choose from which were good, but nothing fantastic. The best place to eat and where we ate at least once a day was Sea Breeze which was on the beach right next to Cha Am Hotel. The food tasted great, big selection, great price, great view of the beach, fantastic sea breeze and lots of fans both fixed and moveable. The family that run this restaurant are super nice, helpful and friendly and make sure that everything is just how you like it. Nothing is too much for them. Great atmosphere. The SEA BREEZE was a life saver and made our stay at the Regent Cha Am much more enjoyable. Their traditional Thai dishes were authentic and tasty,( no msg) fruit smoothies tasted great and also western food available, which my kids loved. My favourite was the green curry and sticky rice with mango dish's. The Regent Cha Am is good if you want a quiet holiday to lay by the pool. l would not go back and would try another place.
The resort is good but the distance from my room is pretty far from a lobby(depends on room you'll get) .I have a wonderful thought about the pools because they are all nice,quiet and also have one per building. So far it's a great time in Cha-am!!!!
Stayed there for 3 nights last weekend. Ive stayed in many luxury hotels in Thailand over the past 3 years that Ive lived here and this is the best value for money I had. The resort is simply amazing, with a property that is much bigger than what you would guess by reading the reviews here. There is a big garden with lots of trees and birds and 2 huge swimming pools giving you a real holiday feeling. We stayed in the villas by the beach. The room and bathroom were spotless! It looked liked it was built last month. The bed was very comfortable with many pillows, and the bathroom had both a jacuzzi and a big shower. On the last night we took a deluxe room on the top floors overlooking the pool, which was brand new too. The breakfast was a bit pricy, 400 baht per person per day, but there was quite a lot of food to choose from. And the restaurants is by the pool with great pool/garden views. The new pizza restaurant on the beach, Peppina, is not cheap but their Bangkok branch being the trendiest and best pizza place, I wasnt really surprised. All the products they use are really good and the pizza were delicious! Really worth it. You can also order food at the hotel restaurant by the pool all day long, and have it delivered to your pool beds. The pool is big and very clean, with a huge kids section. Taxis to Hua Hin at the hotel lobby are really expensive, because they only have 9 people minivans, which cost 600 baht for a one way trip. There is a 7/11 10mn away, turn left when you leave the lobby. Service was great, but the staff at the lobby was not very friendly when we arrived at night. If you looking for activities I highly recommend to spend a day at the elephant rescue camp from the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (30mn by car). Mind blowing experience!
Booked a "superior" room. But in fact is the basic. Had trouble with checkin who originally gave us a room that was overlooking a stagnant pond. Complained and got changed. Lobby is not air conditioned and besides the restaurant no other place is air conditioned to cool down. Lovely pool. HOTEL IS MILES away from shops..it's more like a 3 star hotel.
The location of the hotel is great. The rooms are well maintained. It is a beautiful place, but since the rooms are well spread out, it may require a bit of walking from lobby to your room. The staff are friendly, and helpful. The coffee shop at the lobby has some really good snacks, but the coffee is just okay. The restaurant can be crowded, but the food is good, and reasonable.
We had a very enjoyable, relaxing 3 weeks at this Hotel, excellent service, great staff, very helpful. The new general manager Ben has helped the Hotel become even better than previously. Looking forward to a return visit next year.
