10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Very expensive not a 4*
"We stayed at this hotel for a number of nights, first impressions are that it is a well presented resort that is until you start to look at the real picture. The first thing to hit you after you move into your room is the poor shower pressure its terrible. The next is the fact that there is no hot water at the basin. All rooms only have cold water this is not acceptable for a 4* hotel that is very expensive by Thai standards. The next thing is the air conditioning its like having a helicopter taking off in your room, the only way you can sleep is with ear plugs and you can still hear it then!. The breakfast food is not covered well and the fruit and jams were covered in bees and flies, the small birds were eating at the breads and then the guests who did not see this were eating the bread it was very unhealthy. The beach beds were filthy dirty. The beds were also rented out to non residents so you could come down in the morning and the beds were all taken. The staff are very friendly and helpful but you would be left to struggle with a sun lounger on the beach if you could find one. The rooms are kept very clean as are the gardens and pathways."

"Loved the place so much that we extended our stay for another 3 days! Lovely staff, very friendly and accomodating. We got the top villa with huge venranda. The room is quite spacious and very clean. Love the beach front restaurant especially. The hotel provides beach chairs as well as the towels which are very handy. The location is walking distance from major places, like night makret and villiage market shopping mall. The chef makes delicious thai as well as taps and italian (he used to work as italian chef at Evason). The only thing that we didn't like was the water pressure for the shower. We are too used to ours back home and thought it was very very low. But we got used to in few days. Also, you get free wireless internet which is a bonus. Highly recommended."

"We were 5 persons. Two children (7 & 9). All of us, young and old, enjoyed our stay immensely. The placement of the hotel is pure genius. Secluded with it's own strip of beach, restaurant (with nice breakfast) overlooking the beach, very relaxed pool area and only a three minute walk to down town Hua Hin. Rooms (bungalows) very spacious, clean, elegantly designed, large bathroomss, large walk in closet, two television sets, stereo, dvd players. Big beds. Staff very attentive and generous. They seemed to really care about our well being. Due to the sad times for the travel industry (financial crisis and political turmoil) we were able to negotiate a very reasonable rate. Also free wifi on the whole of the hotel grounds. We were fantastically happy with having found this haven! The stay at Baan Laksasubha was the highlight of our three week stay in Thailand."

Loved the location and space
"We booked Baan Laksasubha having found it on Tripadvisor - we were not disappointed. Travelling with 2 teenagers, we booked a garden villa. We took downstairs - sitting room with bathroom (plus TV x 2 , Cd player x 2) , large bedroom with another huge bathroom with balcony's surrounding all rooms. Kids room accessible via outside staircase to large balcony with table and chairs for 6 plus 2 sun loungers. Large bedroom and ensuite bathroom with shower. Our only disappointment with the accomodation that it was close to the road. However, having complained we were shown other rooms but decided to stay where we were as we has a private garden and the balcony was not overlooked (plus it had the evening sun). The pool is small, but used by few until the early evening wnen sun goes from the beach. Restaurant is right on the beach, where there are loungers reserved for hotel guests. Sofitel guests were paying to use our loungers as they have no loungers on the beach. There is a beach bar owned by an interesting bunch of lads right next to the hotel - we ate there almost every lunchtime and had some lovely meals - soup (tom yum), sea food platters and curries. There are many more beach bars just minutes walk away and beach traders selling food and clothing etc.. The hotel is positioned just 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. We enjoyed several meals at the night market and some on the fishermans peer. The sex industry is obvious (probably because it is quite a small town) - but avoidable (no more than to be expected). Overall we had a great break; good hotel, beach and food."

"A friend and her young daughter and I stayed here in October 2008 for 3 nights on a week long visit to Thailand from where we live in Oman. We stayed in a gorgeous villa, on the ground floor, which had 2 huge bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. My friend and her daughter had the first room and I had the massive twin and equally massive, lovely bathroom. In short, I loved it! The decor in the rooms is all white with hints of silver and navy blue - very calming - and loads of natural light flooding though the floor to ceiling windows on 2 walls. I havenât fallen for a hotel room before, but this was a real winner and I think it's because it wasn't ordinary and boring. Perhaps the most impressive thing was how clean and beautifully kept the rooms were, and the gardens too which we strolled lazily through to reach the pool. We enjoyed a meal at the beach restaurant although were so relaxed we slept too late each morning to catch breakfast! The members of staff were lovely and subtly attentive, if that makes sense. I was very sorry to leave!"

"A group of 17 of us stayed at Baanlaksasubha in Oct 2008 and I cannot recommend this place enough! its small, with a lot of character, spotlessly clean ang very friendly staff who go out of their way to help you. Other pluses are: great outdoor restaurant with good food, good beach access and great location right next to the sofitel and walking distance from the centre of town. luxury with class is how i would sum this place up. the villas are big, airy and very tastefully done, and the whole experience was one of understated class."

Fantastic place to stay
"We spent 11 nights here and enjoyed every monent of it, we had a 2 bedroom garden villa as we were travelling with a 7 and 16 year old and they had their own bedroom, bathroom and terrace (although we could get to it from our room), the appartments were spotless, I simply can not recall staying anywhere this clean or anywhere where the owner and staff cared so much. Having breakfast on the beach everyday was a real plus point and everyone's dream idea of Thailand I think. You could also have lunch and Dinner there, with a choice of Thai and European food the kids never went without. The pool was not very big but the with the sea a short walk through the villas you couldn't ask for more, just please watch for the jellyfish as my 7yr old son was very badly stung, the hotel staff acted very quickly in treating it and as I write this today my son had recieved a card from tho owner wishing him well. The location of the appartments was a 2 minute walk from some very nice resturants and if you do lots of walking as we did a very cheao Tuk Tuk ride to the night markets and places a little further away. To sum up our family holiday I would simply say that we had a fantastic time, hotel, food, people amazing.....cant wait to go and see more of Thailand."

A great place to stay.
"My husband and I and four adult children celebrated our 40th anniversary in June 2008 in Thailand. Our first stop was at Baan Laksasubha in Hua Hin. It could not have been a better choice. It is a beautiful beachside resort. The villas were lovely, airy and spotless. The staff was very gracious and always ready to be of assistance. Every morning we ate at their outdoor restaurant on the beach for breakfast. Our children surprised us with a beautifully planned anniversary dinner at the restaurant while the resort staff decorated our room with flowers. While we would try to offer a balanced account of pluses and minuses, it would be difficult to think of anything that was not positive in our 4 days at Baan Laksasubha . Note: even if you do not stay at Baan Laksasubha, the dining on the beach is not to be missed."

Beautiful place to stay in Hua Hin
"The Baan Laksasubha has been designed with great care. Superb attention to details and very comfortable suites and villas. The gardens, pool area etc are well kept and the staff have been well trained! The best things about Laksasuba are the 'huge' size of the rooms, relaxing style design and the location. Just a stroll past the Sofitel to the very center of town. This is not a large 'busy' resort hotel, more a place of tranquility to stay in lovely designed accommodation, at the beach, close to town. rates very reasonable for what you get."

"We arrived in Hua Hin and just called in at this pristine, new hotel which is immediately adjacent to the Sofitel, on the best stretch of beach in Hua Hin. It opened in about November 2007, with great attention to detail. Very spacious and superbly equipped guest villas share the same grounds with the owner's original family home and the dÃ©cor reflects the traditional lifestyle influenced by Thai nobility. The services and facilities are first class, and although the staff don't speak much English they are very willing to please. I can't recommend this enough."
