The Lapa, newly opened hotel in Hua Hin, Petchkasem Road, soi 102. Came here on Sunday and will stay here till next Sunday.
The main reason I chose this place was due to the restaurant, Andrea's. The chef/owner was the head chef of La Grappa in the center of town two years ago. After that he chose to open up his own place in this hotel. Stupid as I am, I somehow erased the pics of what I ate! But it was exquisite! Burrata with tomatoes and Parma ham, thinly sliced ham which melted on my tongue. The burrata, made here in Thailand was rich and creamy.
Then I went for their pizza Tartuffo, mozzarella, Parma ham, truffle crème and shaved black truffle. Fatto amore im bocca!!! Perfect way to start of my stay here in Hua Hin. Will be back here before I leave for the Big Mango, Bangkok.
The rooms here are spacious and clean. Nice details with the tiles in the bathroom which follow thru into the living area and by the entrance. Nice with the painting on the wall as well. (I like small details like that)
The pool area is ok but above standard regarding the size of the hotel. Sun time in pool area will be late morning until around 15:00, after that the sun goes behind the hotel. Nice with the small sandy area, but if you want the real thing then just cross the street and walk 100 meters....
