Continued from Part I - a bit about the journey from Bangkok to Hua Hin, Chatchai market (day time), Hua Hin Night Market, Asia Herb Association (for spa experience).
Amari Hotel Hua Hin (http://www.amari.com/huahin/)
As the focus of my Hua Hin trip is Cicada Weekend Art Market, I selected a hotel that's located the closest so that we may walk directly to the market instead of driving (and having to find parking). But ended up, we still drove there coz there's a big car park nearby the market :p
Anyways, back to Amari Hotel.
The hotel lobby is designed along the ocean theme; love the combination of clean and sleek looks together with the colour-scheme of blue, white and brown.
Aerial view of the swimming pool. Some blocks of the hotel are service apartments or residential property. The beach is quite a distance away, the hotel provides buggy service to and fro the beach at regular intervals or upon reservation/request.
Our deluxe seaview room. Likewise we loved the contemporary interior design and cozy furnishings of the room.
The lounge sofa has recently became my "must-have" piece of furniture when it comes to selecting a hotel/room of choice. Love lounging on the lounge sofa. LOL!
Complimentary snacks - sweets made from coconut and palm sugar and some nuts.
Hidden within the closet are the bar fridge, coffee/tea making set and crockery. As usual work desk, flat screen TV and luggage rack.
Decent size bathroom, no bathtub though.
Love the design of the wash basin area, clean and sleek.
Wardrobe with the usual bathrobes, slippers, straw bag and safe.
Small balcony area.
View from the balcony.
Buffet breakfast was included in our room rate, and served at Mosaic Restaurant located at ground level.
It was a weekend when we were there, so the restaurant was quite crowded.
Buffet spread was reasonable, with the usual salad bar, fruits, hot food, bakery section, egg station, cook-to-order noodle/rice station.
View of the hotel from pool side.
The pool looked great! Although we brought along our swimwear, we didn't manage to go for a swim as we were too busy exploring the various attractions. Next time!
A pity that I didn't get to explore the spa as well.
The spa was not opened early in the morning when I went, so had to take photos outside the glass door. Other times, I was out :(
The Reef Deli looked good too, but other than breakfast, we had all our meals elsewhere. Next time perhaps.
Overall, Amari Hua Hin is a nice hotel, we enjoyed our stay. Worth a re-visit should we return to Hua Hin again!
End of Part II.
Stay tune for Part III - Santorini Park at Cha-Am (located 30 mins before reaching Hua Hin.
