280 kilometers south of Bangkok, Hua Hin, is the oldest beach resort of the country and is still very popular. Some say Hua Hin has the lowest humidity among beach cities in Thailand so it is a perfect place for relaxation. Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas Hua Hin was my destination.
Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas Hua Hin is one of Thailand‘s most romantic resorts. Located right in the heart of Hua Hin, this luxurious hotel offers charming coronial style low rise architectures with world-class facilities.
The resort was opened in 1923 as the Railway Hotel and currently boasts 207 luxurious rooms, suites, Sofitel Club rooms, 4 pools, and an excellent beachfront location, making it a destination of choice for the discerning travelers. Deluxe Pool Villa was my choice to stay in Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas Hua Hin.
With the living space of 76 sqm., this unit has been complemented by an oversized bathroom where the large stone bathtub and a separate rainshow are located in an outdoor environment (WOW!!!). Additionally, the villa has a 5 meter marble pool within a private walled and furnished garden (max occupancy 2 adults). Flat screen TV and DVD player in all villas. All surrounded by vibrant tropical gardens and flowering trees.
Two putting greens, three swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness centre and a fully – staffed Kids Club are available at the hotel. The resort’s SPA Cenvaree is open daily with an appealing selection if treatments and massages
The staffs were fantastic and I was always looked after well. Sofitel Club was just awesome .This facility is really worth having with breakfast (6:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.)
coffee tea and mid morning snacks (10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m) , Hi tea (3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.) and cocktail hour provided in a more exclusive environment.
Ultimately, the hotel provided me a spacious, stylish, luxurious environment in which to enjoy some of life's better moments. Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas Hua Hin is must stay place for those who wants to experience the tradition of this resort town in superb modern convenience. This resort is really five star plus.
