I visited the Evason Hua Hin in February for 8 days for my mothers birthday, initially I had reservations by a very small number of comments made by other visitors. However I am pleased to confirm that the hotel was lovely. The hotel was clean, bedrooms were keep clean and your sheet will be changed as often as you need them changed. The hotel has a eco friendly feel to it, everything is very natural looking and the gardens are also full off ponds and green plants and trees, you feel like your in a lovely forest. The Thai food was tasty, I wish I had time to do a cookery class, but time ran out and classes are a little pricey. The people were so welcoming, professional and polite and this made our stay very satisfying. The hotel doesn't have a direct beach that you can sit on, but it has a lovely reasonable sized pool. The pool is opposite the sea at the same level which is equally beautiful. The hotel is also approx 3 hours away from Bangkok and 25 mins from Hua Hin the main town. There is a shuttle service that will take you to Hua Hin at scheduled times, however it comes at a cost of apprx £4 each way. There are also excursions to the city of Bangkok (approx £60 rtn for the day) is worthwhile but has a complete different feel to the resort of Hua Hin, bangkok is fast paste and Hua Hin is relaxing. Evason is a quiet resort which is what we needed, there isn't much evening entertainment so if your looking for a lot of excitement in the evenings its probably not for you. Initially we booked bed and breakfast but just before we left I upgraded to half board. I think this was the better option as paying for food as you go can be expensive unless your prepared to leave the hotel everyday and eat outside the resort for cheaper. We didn't feel confident to try 'on the road food' so we played it safe and was very happy with the hotel restaurant food, 'finger linking good'. Even though we had half board, bear it in mind that you still have to pay for your drinks so factor that into your budget.
There is scope to have massages and pampering at the six senses spa with the hotel but is very expensive, however just outside the hotel there are spa's opposite the beach where you can get a full body massage, foot massage etc.. for 1.5 hours at only 300 bahts (£6) so thats where most people went.
Overall I recommend the Evason Hua Hin if your looking for a peaceful holiday with friendly professional services that cater to your every need. People from Thailand are so much different to those in the western countries, they are very polite and have the most respect for humanity, you will love it if you share these values. My view is that the hotel is more for couples, solo or friends rather than for families with children, it might be too quiet for childrens and I think because adults may go there to relax, noisy children may disturb the peace.
Nevertheless you will receive a good service and you will be made to feel special, if you can stay at the Evason Hua Hin you will not be dissappointed!
