A must visit 1st class hotel

Reviewed 5 december, 2021

The hotel is steeped in history of a colonial style with the most amazing grounds and gardens. The hotel is central to all the action in Hua Hin such as shopping bars restaurants and spas so if you want to leave the oasis of the hotel all this is a couple of minutes away. As the hotel is directly on the beach you have access to a 4 mile long golden sand beach which is awesome first thing in the morning fir an early walk. What makes this hotel stand out from the crowd is the staff and how they treat you. Nothing is too much trouble all you need to do is ask and it happens. You must eat at Coast restaurant which is directly on the beach so the views as you sip your wine and enjoy fabulous food is awesome. Top tip is to have a Club room which are spacious and give you access to the club lounge. Some of the benefits of club inc afternoon high tea, al a cart breakfast on the terrace and of course evening cocktails where you get to meet lots of lovely people whilst enjoying extensive canapés. If your coming for a few days or more ask about the Baht boost which gives you added money when you buy into the scheme, we’ll worth it. As far as cleanliness and attention to detail this hotel has impeccable standards, even down to the manicured gardens, which are beautiful. If your looking for somewhere with class and style that got bags of character this place is a must. Highly recommend to all.


Wonderful colonial style hotel

Reviewed 30 november, 2021

We loved the style, the atmosphere, the location, the wide area of the hotel, the view from our room, its furniture - summarized it is the place to stay when in Hua Hin. We also need to mention some smaller organizational topics which have been addressed to the management already and accepted in a very professional way.


Bad experience for the breakfast.

On 7 Nov-21, After i had morning breakfast at the hotel. I felt that French Salad sauce go bad. I had diarrhea in the evening until the next day. Then i went to the hospital from this cause. I didn’t had too much during the day. I am really sure that came from Salad sauce. The environment and service are good. But this is my bad experience for me. So not recommend.


Blast from the past: 19th Century Hotel with Stunning Garden in Modern Environment

Reviewed 3 november, 2021

After a very long Covid lockdown since 2020 to 2021, I finally have an opportunity to conduct leisure travel. As I usually visit Hua Hin annually. I decided to stay at the Centara Grand Beach Resort for this visit. The hotel is one of the oldest hotel in Southeast Asia as it was founded around 100 years ago. The building still maintain the 19th Century to early 20th Century style of architect. The reception area is an open air with the beautiful garden view. Upon arrival, the hotel assistant manager by the name of Mr. James greeting us. He is exceptionally nice and polite gentleman. As we booked for the Deluxe Suite, the assistant manger offered us to wait for our room (as the room still cleaning upon our arrival) to wait at the Club lounge. The Club lounge is overlooking the beautiful garden with the trees being cut into the shape of animals such as Peacock, Elephant, Deer. After the room is ready, we founded that the room is exceptional. We got the Deluxe Suite with the clear separation between the living area, dressing area, working area, and the bedroom. The room is decorate with the real wood that brought us back to the 19th Century style of decoration. The balcony is overlooking both garden and the ocean. The walkway around the balcony remind us of the long corridor from the classic mansion. Throughout our stay, we have exceptionally good time. The services are excellent. The hotel decorations, the services, and the facilities including the fitness and the spa services are top of the line. We spend most of the time in the hotel. The garden, the lounge, the coffee shop, and even the restaurants are well decorated and giving us a great imagination of what happened in Hua Hin 100 years ago. Importantly, the staffs at this hotel dress in 19th Century fashion that gave us even better feeling. The only downside is the lack of parking space within the hotel area. But I cannot complain much, as we came during the long weekend. So, this is an expected problem.

Great hotel, great service

We love the historical touch of Centara Grand Huahin, which started out in the 1920s as The Railway Hotel. The colonial-style buildings and rooms are beautifully maintained (rooms sanitized and sealed with a health sticker in current Covid times). We enjoy the expansive lawns dotted with a topiary garden, a jumbo chess set, a maze, and even an outdoor stone ping pong table. Centara Huahin was our first choice for a quick beach get-away during the pandemic last year. We've returned multiple times since then, including a stop on our drive back to Bangkok after completing Sandbox quarantine down in Phuket. The breakfast buffet included with our stay was terrific. Again, Covid hygiene is observed, with hand gel and gloves provided to diners in the buffet line. Snowfish at the Coast restaurant is really superb. Hats off to Manager Jan Weisheit for the excellent service provided by his entire staff. Centara Grand Huahin is a 10/5 for us.
