Our family visited this hotel in January, 2014.
This is very very good hotel!
The hotel is located not far from the city of HuaHin. On the beach. The beach on the sea is very pure. Staff of hotel watches it. On a beach very beautiful view of all coast is opens.
I booked using the Dusit Club package, which provided great value for money in terms of meaningful "free" extras (breakfast, Club snack & pre dinner drinks etc. The hotel facilities are top class, both the accommodation (room size, facilities, cleanliness), grounds are A++++ in terms of the view, landscaping, amazing pool area, proximity to the beach. It was like paradise.
The staff were informal, thoroughly friendly and professional to the holidaying traveller. Nothing was too much trouble and that was from every staff member from supervisers to gardeners.
The location Hua Hin is 2 hours drive from Bangkok and is a place for couples, families, business get aways. The area has lots of resorts, so there's plenty of tourists visible but with a complete absence of the glitz of Bangkok or Phuket. It seems a strong European, Thai and Asian holiday destination.
Plenty of typical Thailand tourist tours to experience, including both historic and natural attractions.
If you want a wonderfully relaxing hiliday in the best possible surroundings, then look no further. If you want boozy nightlife and girlie bars, go to Bangkok or Phuket.
Veranda Resort & Spa is a wonderful hotel. Nice large rooms with furnished balcony where it is great to sit and relax in the afternoon. Privat beach with free sunbeds. Beach has a couple of nice small beachrestaurants where also massage is given. Big pool surrounded by sunbeds. About 20 min with taxi to Hua Hin. All in all great spot to stay and explore.
We booked for a 4 night relaxing stay by the beach and got just that.
We were made very welcome on arrival and shown to a great room in the smaller block above the reception area and overlooking the pool area.
I had read previous comments about walking straight into the bathroom area so did wonder what to expect. As you enter the room yes the bathroom area is to your right - a shower type curtain can be drawn across - and to your left is the wardrobe etc with s louver door in front of you leading to the spacious bedroom. Although unusual this did not cause a problem.
A large bathroom area with a huge walk in shower enclosure and most unique brightly coloured ceramic bathtub which was a lot more comfortable than it looked.
A well equipped room with the most comfortable of beds.
We used the restaurant a couple of times for dinner eating in the area set up around the pool - both the food and service were first class and we would highly recommend doing this.
Breakfast was served in a small open air restaurant behind the pool area and just across a small road. A great selection each day and again first class service.
Not close to the beach, you have to take the shuttle to their sister hotel in Hua hin, which is better to stay in that city. Everything is old and needs a renovation. The pool is dirty. We can't use the jacuzzis because of the water problem. It's far from everything, not even a 7eleven is near. The staff barely understands English and up until the last day, when we were leaving, everyone started to greet us.
