Lovely hotel in quiet area. Staff very helpful and friendly and seem to remember the smallest details. Will leave you alone if that is what you want, but there to suggest if you want to go something!
Transport pretty expensive, but taxi companies just outside resort much cheaper and did us just fine.
Loved the cooking class and dinner on the beach.

To start with, it's just beautiful: spread-out, low-rise, amid lush tropical vegetation. They've made the fullest use of the climate, with an open lobby and restaurants.
We found everyone charming, attentive and helpful. (Insight: the staff are referred to as hosts, not as staff, and that shows in their demeanour.) Housekeeping is impeccable and room service amazingly quick. What more can you ask for?
Well, you can ask for more: an excellent spa. There is of course a Six Senses spa on the property. It's not only as good as you expect one to be, it's as beautiful as the property is.
Hua Hin town is a comfortable 20 km ride away, and if you want to get anywhere in the area the activities desk go out of their way to help.

Of all the hotels we have stayed in, this was the best in so many ways. The pool villas are well equiped as described, even with current model iPhone 6 players. The pool, garden and sala are totally private, and peaceful, not overlooked from any direction. Every possible convenience is provided including a very good free wifi throughout the property.
Staff training in some aspects of F&B is required. Breakfast is faultless. Any hotel that has peanut butter on the buffet always scores well with me. However the selected is biased towards oriental guests.
In Room dining is excellent in every sense.
Dinner at Luna La Pran, the beach restauant was far better than Dalah the main restaurant. Dalah has a bigger choice, and more expensive dishes, but the execution was poor. Starters not served together, main courses pretty poor, especially for the price.
Location could be an issue for some. The area is quite in every sense. Very few tourists, thus very few outside places to eat, and overall they were not great. Hua Hin is not a very nice place so the 30 minute drive there is not worth the effort. The village of Prak Nam Pran is a typical old fishing port. The seafront is being improved, and will have good foot and cycle paths, and hopefully lighting that works.
The drive from Bangkok is long, 4 - 5 hours depending on traffic. The cost of a private car with driver, we did ours via Expedia / Tours East is well justified.
For total relaxation we would reurn again.
Pranburi, a quiet development of boutique resort hotels in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, is 30 km (19 miles) south of Hua Hin. Pranburi Forest Park backs onto the Gulf of Thailand and is crossed with mangrove nature trails. Observe colourful mud crabs as you walk or kayak through here.
