Reviews for AKA Hotel Resort & Spa
Checked in for 3 days n 2 nights , 9/24-26,upon arrival the rain was pouring, the front desk saw we walking under the rain but no one came for help! There was no umbrella in the room as the other Thai hotel and when we asked the front desk they let us took the one they were using! The distance from the resort to town or the beach is 20 min without traffic instead of 10 min they claimed! The shuffle was a Tuk tuk instead of golf Car, of course , it is noisy at night or early morning and smell of gasoline ! Really bad for the environment ! Besides, it was really bumpy on the pebble road or uneven surface! The overhead lightning in the bathroom above the sinks were bad design ! The water pimp next to the living room was noisy! There was only Thai channel on the TV! I bought my own wifi egg but the reception was bad in the room( Rm 138). On the day I departed there wasn't enough guest in the resort and no buffet breakfast was serving . It was a nightmare to make order since the waiter's English level was worse than the kindergarten students! The 2 hot oatmeal we ordered became one and over 90% was milk with sugar added! The boiled rice with fish was written on the menu instead of congee , easy to be mistaken ! I asked a pair of chopsticks which was delivered after 10 min ! Overall the hotel workers were nice and helpful but the English has to be improved! There was no hot water from the tap or open air shower, some one may feel it's kind of cold if showering at night ! There were only 2 med towels n 2 bath towels with no hand towel! I was attracted by the ad they put on with won one of the best award resorts in S E Asia! I wonder which organization giving it!
The outside seems fine but the villa itself looks very tired and old. Definitely need a lot of renovations. There are only outdoor showers which is not great if you need to wash late at night, prepare to fight with the army of mosquitoes. Creepy crawlies are everywhere which is an absolute nightmare, with many ants on the floor and geckos on the walls inside! The outside bath is very dirty and unusable. Some basic things aren't properly functional such as broken tap at the sink. Full of cracked tiles. The living room inside the villa is full of ants. Breakfast choices is poorly limited. The only good thing that I can think of is that the pool inside the villa is big but the water was very dirty and cloudy, not something that I would want to swim in. Not to mention how remote the resort is; if you want to leave, there's barely anywhere to go. Car rental is kind of essential. To make matters worse, they're making money out of your exchange rate too: we booked the room in thai baht, but they charged us in british pounds without our consent, meaning we paid around 10% more!

check in here....get relax, get your slow life, swimming with private pool. The decoration is seem like modern and luxury. There is a few of parking lot and the location is far away from downtown of huahin. And if you come to stay in long weekend you must manage your time to come to eat breakfast because they also have a few of table that not fit for their customer. They have a good service mind from every emplyees
I took my 60++ years old parents and sister there for father's Birthday. We read a lot of bad review and bad reputation since they sell coupon and problem with room type. But the deal is like cheapest pool villa in the world challenge me to try . So we not expect to get the 5 starts and try to think realistic we will get what we pay. But the resort has amazing staffs especially bellboy and drivers. I think they are hotel 's ambassador not just driver. As the property is large ,we will have to take buggy car. Positive -Large pool -Good quality of sleep -Breakfast is not 5 stars but it's much enough for choices they have lovely homemade soy milk -Amenity is ok soap , shampoo, lotion, hairdryer , shower cap, vanity kit -Mini bar is really cheap 1 soft drink is only 25 THB Negative but not big deal for us -The furniture ,linen,bathrobe and curtain need to be replace -Prepared for a lot of insect and little little animal. It's tropical country and this resort located on the mountain. -Wifi ok but sometimes it's slow -Bathtub are dirty but we have 10m pool !! who need a tub?

Let's start with the positive reviews: - atmosphere of the resort was great. - we got a nice little new year gift from the resort. - bed is clean and comfortable. Now to the negative reviews: - Outdoor bathtub was unusable and disgusting. - bath area is outdoor and bathing outdoor was really cold and torturous during the winter season. - swimming pool was dirty but bearable. - The pond at the entrance looks really stale and looks like the perfect spot for mosquito breeding. - overall outlook of the room is dusty and not well maintained. - poor wifi signal - breakfast spread was horrible. We joined the breakfast at 9am and there was almost no food left. This is perhaps one of the worse 5-star resort we can ever stay in and would never come back to stay again.
