Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s oldest resorts. It is popular with Thais as well as foreigners and since 1928 has been an official residence of the Thai royal family. Its proximity to Bangkok makes it an attractive beach destination. It is about two and a half hours drive from the new Bangkok airport “Suvarnabhumi”.
The area has an excellent range of shops, day and night markets, and custom tailors as well as an abundance of restaurants with seafood a local delicacy.
Hua Hin boasts many top class hotels. The famous Chiva Som destination spa is located here, consistently voted as one of the world’s best spa resorts. This tranquil haven focuses on health and well being and offers bespoke packages inclusive of meals and treatments tailored to individual needs.
While the beach at Hua Hin is not spectacular, the quality of the accommodation and the facilities in the area makes it an ever popular choice.
Twenty miles south of Hua Hin is Pranburi, a peaceful and serene area home to some wonderful hotels. Hua Hin and the surrounding area are incredibly popular with golfers with many world-class courses to choose from and very low green fees. Hotels are generally happy to arrange tee times in advance.
Just off this coast is the island of Koh Samed. Hugely popular with weekenders from Bangkok, there is less choice here for the foreign market. However, if you are interested, we would be happy to arrange it and can recommend some hotels.
