Review: Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa

Hilton Hua Hin Resort

Located in Hua Hin coastal town, Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa is a well-known beachfront resort on the Gulf of Thailand. The 15-storey building has 296 spacious rooms with private balconies facing the beach; a popular choice of stay if you’re visiting the beachtown.

How to get to Hua Hin

Hua Hin is 3-hour drive from Bangkok. The quickest and comfortable way is by car. I booked a private transfer from Suvarnabhumi Airport via Hua Hin Cab for 2000 Baht. The driver will make a quick stop at the petrol kiosk for toilet break in between the journey.

Lobby

After 3 hours, I arrived at Hilton Hua Hin open-air lobby and eager to check-in. With close to 300 rooms, there were only 3 staff at the front desk. Unfortunately, my check-in experience was muddled and slow.

Plenty seating area and nice view of the swimming pool from the lobby.

King Classic Ocean View

I booked the King Classic Ocean View Room, the lowest room category. It was like a throwback to the 90s with everything just dated and tired. The higher room categories has been refurbished while the rest of it is still underway.

Living area and I do feel that the TV is too small!

The view from the balcony are the best that you can find in town even though the room is located on Level 3.

Dated bathroom with basic amenities. Toothbrush is only available upon request.

Fitness Center

The 24-hour Fitness Centre is huge. You can even find 2 tennis courts and 2 squash courts!

The Market Restaurant

The Market Restaurant is a everyday dining located at the lobby level. I had my daily breakfast here and the food selection was impressive. While indoor seating is available, the al fresco terrace area is recommended for early mornings.

Lagoon-style Swimming Pool

The pool was true to the photographs at the resort’s website. Huge, well-maintained and plenty of sun loungers to go around. However, it will get extremely difficult to find a sun loungers in the late afternoon.

I particularly enjoyed the water slide.

Direct Beach Access

Guests will get direct access to the public beach. Hua Hin sea is not exactly ideal for swimming, but the beach is charming nonetheless.

In a nutshell

There are several luxurious hotels in Hua Hin competing and Hilton Hua Hin Resort is still no where near a five star resort.  The location is perfect and close to the centre of the coastal town especially if you are here for only 2 or 3 nights to unwind. Manage your expectations and you will definitely enjoy your stay here.

Pros

  • A beachfront paradise located right in the centre of Hua Hin town
  • Plenty of restaurants and cafe (including halal food) near the resort
  • Walking distance to the Night Market and tuk tuks are readily available at the dedicated “Tuk tuks stand”
  • All rooms and suites with private balconies overlooking the Gulf of Thailand

Cons

  • Traffic in front of the resort can be very busy during peak hours
  • Outdated interior
  • The resort is popular among tour groups
