Close & Easy to Drive, Traveling in Family Style @ Novotel Hua Hin Cha Am Beach Resort & Spa

First of all, please let me explain that all of my reviews are my recommendation directly from my own experiences, if the place I have been is good enough and I personally thought it might be good for many other people, so I will write a review accordingly to recommend. For most of places I will not explain how to get there thus Google Map is a lot better than I do.

For this review, I have not planed, it is an incident that I come here at Novotel Cha Am Hua Hin Beach & Spa.

My first impression is to see families are having a good time in this hotel. I see a lot of lovely family moments as they are doing activities together during their vacation, which is very touching my feeling. This trip is unexpected and it's a very short trip only one day and one night. But I was enjoying it so much, that is why I want to recommend this place for families, who has children and still not sure where to go for their next up coming weekend. Not only showing you what is in Novotel but I will also show you what I did around Hua Hin for my short hide away.


Let's just go and see what is Novotel Hua Hin offering...

The building is quite high and very outstanding in the area, we can see the building from the highway Petchkasem, turn left when you see the hotel's sign. Right at the street isle is the hotel sign on your left hand which is very easy to find, you aren't going to lost....


The driving way to drop off area is set in tropical with trees which is very green and shady


I love this wall with bells on it...


From drop off, walk up for a few steps is the lobby with high ceiling, clean decoration, where your children can already start running around ...

There is a couch with a big vase in the lobby..



Walk a bit further is the spa counter with a thick spa's menu, let's just have a peak what is new, well it's self service here..


Next to the counter is information board, where you can keep up dating what is going on here, or may be some attractive promotions..:) Don't miss your chance...


I arrived way too early, my room doesn't ready to get in. I just have to wait in the G floor but what to do in this hour!! good idea for a coffee, then I sit at Le Cafe, which is opposite from the reception counter, very lovely moment as I see some children are jumping around and getting exciting to be here with their parents. My impression is starting from here, from happy children :) well at first I thought ... Damn it !! so many kids....hahaha


I order a cup of Americano, because my favorite cup is just pure black no cream and sugar at all. Wow there is my favorite ice cream Movenpick..no no I'm not getting it ..telling myself that I am on diet...

And I got a free cupcake, complimentary when you order a coffee, OMG!!! so then I have another cup with other cupcake!! Please!!! yes I got two coffee and two cupcakes..

Nothing much to do, so I connect to free WIFI and read reviews in README.ME, I have to say that I love this website because all places are very inviting, I want to visit all of them...


Let's see what Le Cafe has here...healthy & refreshing



Sandwiches


Still have sometime, let's just walk around ..

every water playing equipments are here no worry of you forget something at home,, but it's for sale...


Chips and snack

Every thing are here, pool toys for kids, swim suite, chips and snack.. If you don't want to buy here, there is a seven eleven at the hotel's gate.....

I decided to continue my walk around..


It's very beautiful, I feel like it here, walk around and take tons of photos in the strong sunshine and no worry I like getting tanned,,,not a problem for me....


Water Lilly



Here is the walk way to the pool, I think it's such a lovely scene....


When we walk down to the pool on this way we have to pass Tai, Thai cuisine restaurant, very nice and clean set up... but I have not tried anything from here so I can't tell how good the food is... Please come by yourself if you are here :))

See some menus here, I think the atmosphere is very relax and comfortable with fresh air... what a shame that I can't make it diner this time... OK!!!! I will leave it for my next visit then....


Down here to the pool zone, which I think the kids will definitely love it, the pool consists with deeper and shallow, sun bathing chairs are provided sufficiently....

Let's walk around...

A big pool with slider for the kids...

Beautiful pool

Here is the pool bar,,, the father who is beer lover,, here is your bar, get a cold beer while witching your kid playing...


I love hammock, it's very comfortable when I sleep on it.. there are many of them hanging between coconut trees...


And I love their garden, it's still clean but nice shade,, Not overlay the blue sky allow the sunshine touch the ground but at the same time some shadow cut down the heat which is good for sun bathing.......


Private cabanas at the beach front allow you to have your privacy,, decorated with white curtain, which dances with the wind making the scene lively....


This house is right on the beach front, it's Ocean Terrance restaurant ... I will come back for diner...

The restaurant is next to the pool,, as you see on the pool level is the pool bar... I see a staff walking around to ask guest if they would like to have lunch beside the pool.. WOW!! I guess they serve lunch here as well, what a perfect vacation....


Turned my head and I saw this... this makes me well understand why all rooms are sea view..and all rooms are facing to the east..that means you can watch sunrise from your balcony ....



Then I walk up to see the restaurant day-time atmosphere

And checking the prices,, not bad at all...


Very interesting is here...under the restaurant..

Kid world,, all toys are here, the room is very colorful, fresh and fun, must be a haven for children...Because there are both in and out-door activities to keep they busy, which provided by the hotel, the parents can have a real resting moment for themselves...

It's free for all of this...

I think I have walked through every where down here...

And it's time to get in the room..

I walk back up this way...


As the door is unlocked, the first thing is taking photo before the bed getting mess up.. the room is well cleaned, but I think it's too small, comfortable bed with pillow menu, and big window with big balcony and sea view....As I told you all room are sea view..here we go..


Complimentary coffee and tea and water..


Shower Gel has very nice aroma..


A big balcony for enjoying the sea, but for me must have a can of beer on my hand too...Uhmmm...

Room equipments and amenity are well standardized, or even with a higher value when compare to other hotel and what they provides in term of facilities and activities...

The price starts from 2,000 or a bit over..


View from my balcony


Let me do my thing,, after then I will go for diner at The Ocean Terrace... As I told..


Here I am....

Let's see how good is the food and how does it look like in night time

Not bad at all,, as it's right on the beach is very windy and I feel good here...


None Alcohol , Milk Shake ,, just to pretend to be a good guy here because many children are around....actually I am a drinker ..hahaha


Smoked Salmon, my favorite fish, if I have a glass of sparkling wine to compliment it would be more joyful...but well I will be driving to Hua Hin after diner,,, there I will drink...


Mix greens with shrimps, very fresh with light dressing.. I like it..


Penne Bacon and Cream cheese, I like it more when it's not too creamy because that would make me dizzy...


And also Penne seafood with green pepper and holy basil, rich of herbs and spicy....I think the quality is very value able with it's fair price,,, excellence service,,the staffs are very lovely...



Then after I come up quickly to 23nd floor to see the Roof Top Bar, which is said the highest in this area, which is true because none of high building in Hua Hin,,hahaha,,,

It's a good idea to grab a drink when your kids are tired after playing, so you can have relax...


But not for me.... first of all I have no kids..hahaha ... for me .. I will go and get drunk here....


La Birra, here has a big beer choices from all over the world, mostly come from Europe,, a little bit pricy but for me, a beer lover, can deal with this.. no problem krab..

Very refreshing all the sudden


Check out HAPPY HOUR


After four beer, here I am back to the hotel...

Sober photographer...

Here is opposite Le Cafe, Champion Bar, it looks quite interesting, as I am told this bar will be busy during a football match


Night-time atmosphere

Then it's my bed time,, see you at breakfast...


Refreshing after a good night sleep, I get up for sunrise at about 6 am, It's amazing sunrise spot on your own balcony,, but very pretty it's too clouded.. I see the sun only a few minutes then it hides be hind the gray...

still beautiful..

It's worthy to get up that early..


Let's go for breakfast,, the breakfast is served on the third floor at Horizon Cafe...

Allow me telling you first,, the selections of food are plenty but I couldn't have many pictures as the restaurant is very busy and many kids are keeping themselves busy with searching for their favorite choice,, I just don't want to disturb them...I have what I could .....

Starting with breads...quite some options here...


And toast...


cereal varieties



Salad Bar


Jam and so on....


Boiled eggs..


Omelette


Western Corner


Asian Corner


Milk and fruit juices..


Some cheese...


And this is what I eat,, baked bean is really good, egg and some cherry tomatoes


Fruits , Ham and Cheese

It is up on Accor standard of breakfast setting, varieties of Thai and Western, eat as much as you can because it's served buffet style. The price is 412 plus, If you have member card Accor Adventage, the discount could be applied for food and beverage,, but for the room rate I am not totally sure about it.. let just check it out..

After breakfast I must pack and be ready to check-out.. then heading back to Bangkok..

Before then I will bring you to two important places, which everyone should visit when you are in Hua Hin...


1st place is Ratchpuk Kings of Thailand Historical Park

The statues of king of Siam kingdom, which Thais must never forget,, visit here with your children and be prepared, they might ask you some questions regarding the kings....so don't be offended by their questions...



And Huai Mongkol Temple

The biggest statue of Luang Phoo Tuad,, drop by to pay your respect and pray for your wellness, donate some Bath ...

before coming back to Bangkok your normal daily life....



I must leave Hua Hin even I don't want to.. but any way the party is always come to an ending....

I am enjoying my short trip so much, seeing happy family moment and think back once I was a boy,,,,

The hotel I stayed is very suitable for family weekend away and very close to Bangkok

And Hua Hin itself has many attractions to visit, sun and sea, important places, temples and on and on...

come and see!!!

See you next trip..
