Client blog: The first Anantara

Only a few hours’ drive south of Bangkok, Hua Hin has been the seaside destination of choice for Thai royalty and aristocrats for nearly a century. It is also the setting of the first Anantara, a multi award-winning resort among Hua Hin hotels, that has inspired dozens more around the globe.

So when two of our wonderful clients, Nick and Lydia, were looking for a luxury getaway in the beautiful region, we knew exactly where to send them…

“What a fabulous looking hotel, very authentic Thai style set in the most beautiful manicured grounds with lagoon pools surrounded by small Thai-style villas.

We highly recommend the Junior lagoon pool villas, guests get access to the lagoon pool private area, including a pool bar, set in the most beautiful surroundings.

Also, from 10am to 4pm you have free non-alcoholic drinks, and from 5pm till 6pm free cocktails and canapés. All the staff go out of their way to make sure you are having a good time.

The food served at the lagoon pool at lunch time is out of this world, the tastes of Thailand and Indian food were incredible. The hotel has three restaurants and all were wonderful.

With the upgrade to the Junior Lagoon Villa you have four pieces of laundry per couple washed every day, and there is also a free shuttle bus that runs you in to Hua Hin every night from 4pm till 11pm.

The location is very good with a 10-minute ride to Hua Hin, where you can visit the night market and experience the fantastic atmosphere and Thai food.

We wanted to go to Monkey Mountain one day and the hotel was happy to arrange transport for us. We really couldn’t fault the service.

I would highly recommend this very authentic Thai style hotel where all the staff make extra effort to ensure you feel welcomed, relaxed and pampered.

Abbotts Travel provided an amazing service as always. A special thank you to Julie who arranged this perfect trip for us.”
