Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin is currently ranked number 1 of 128 hotel in Hua Hin on Trip Advisor, the world’s largest travel site. Trip Advisor consistently reaches over 315million unique monthly visitors through its reputation as the essential travel planning tool, now featuring over 190 million reviews which give genuine user commentaries upon 4.4 million accommodations, restaurants and attractions. Naturally, Mr. Peter Nilsson, the resort’s General Manager, is extremely happy to have received the top ranking. “I am very pleased we finally secured the number one spot in this very important media forum and am proud of my team for consistently exceeding guest expectations with their outstanding service,” he commented, also pointing out that the Resort’s unique service deliveries and innovative guest experiences may also have contributed to the ranking.
Originally known as the “Railway Hotel”, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas first opened during the early 1920s, just as the cozy fishing village of Hua Hin was being discovered by the world via the opening of a new railway line to Malaysia. What was to become over time Thailand’s most refined beach resort was fortuitously graced by the newly-built Railway Hotel, which was designed to classic colonial lines. Now sympathetically restored and expanded to include all of the recreational and guest facilities that travelers expect from a beach resort, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas remains one of the ‘grand old hotels’ of the East, and accordingly, is a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World marque.
Set facing Hua Hin’s famously wide breezy beach front, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas is still skirted by an expanse of gardens, an important part of its atmosphere of dignity and serenity, but the Resort is also located conveniently to the town center. Prospective guests would be wise to make their bookings as early as possible as the Resort is just entering its high season.
“This time of year is an ideal one to visit us at Hua Hin; it’s cooler, with blueberry-colored skies, and we have many seasonal activities planned for our guests – but bookings should be made soon, to avoid disappointment”, says Mr. Nilsson.
