"Thai bliss. Dusit Thani Hua Hin is THE place."
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.
