Centrally located, Baan Laksasubha is within walking distance (or short Tuk-Tuk ride) from most of the sites, shopping areas and restaurants. The staff was superb. They re-define the "Land of Smiles" to the "Land of GENUINE Smiles". Atmosphere is very peaceful, whether in the room, on the foot paths, or at the beach. The landscaping evokes the feeling of walking through a rain forest and frogs add sound effects after morning rains.
The beach area is very nice, but we were a bit disappointed that there was quite a bit of debris in the water (or on the ocean floor) during our wade out to deeper water. Also, had to be alert for jelly fish which we saw but, to our knowledge, no one was stung by jellyfish during our stay.
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.
"Excellent hotel with first-rate service and rooms"
We were very pleased with the hotel. The beach and swimming pool are first class, and the complementary breakfasts include both Thai and Western food, are as good as you can find anywhere. The rooms were excellent - clean and with good water views. We'll definitely return.

I found this hotel excelent value for money. The staff we're very friendly and helpful. The rooms we're very comfertable and cleaned every day. The breakfast was very good. The only thing which was dissapointing was the swimming pool. It was ok but they never cleaned it very well, otherwise its a good hotel and very close to everything.
I have stayed in Thailand 15 times before and have never had to critisize the quality of breakfast. Never any bacon, with hotdog sausages and processed ham floating in hot water? Staff stare into space most of the time and almost not aware of residents existance. The shower hose in myroom was broken on arrival and when replaced ( albeit the same day ) the new hose was not long enough so had to kneel in the bath every day for a shower. It was not a temporary measure as I stayed for 3 weeks! I had to ask cleaning staff to replenish the tea and coffee at least twice after room had been serviced. Not impressed and would never stay there again.
