Bangkok
Anantara Hua Hin Resort

For those seeking a coastal resort without having to take an internal flight from Bangkok, the town of Hua Hin, favoured by Thai Royalty for over 100 years, is easily reached by road from Bangkok.

Whilst the beach may not compare with those on the island resorts, the lush tropical, lotus-filled gardens and large free-form pool at this contemporary Thai resort make for a very relaxing stay, whilst the vibrant night markets and plethora of local restaurants offer will appeal to those seeking some down time without feeling remote.

Facilities & Activities

Set in the lush gardens, the large free-form pool with swim up bar is the focal point of the resort. Complimentary water and sun tan lotion alongside little treats such as melon on sticks are offered, making it hard to leave. However, adjacent you can also find table tennis and badminton if you can be roused from your sun-lounger.
Guests staying in a Suite also have access to the Lagoon Club, offering a private pool, overlooking a large pond resplendent with lotus flowers.
The Fitness Centre is open 24 hours a day, offering free weights and a variety of machines or alternatively why not get fit learning Muay Thai boxing! The two tennis courts are also floodlit, allowing for play in the cooler evenings. If Yoga is your activity of choice, you can enjoy a sunrise session on the beach or in the stunning gardens. For golf enthusiasts, there are four clubs within a 30 minutes’ drive, including the renowned Black Mountain Golf Club, which has hosted many major Asian Tournaments.
The calming Spa showcases traditional Thai treatments with impressive suites featuring al fresco showers and open-air tubs. For an informal spot of relaxation, you can also enjoy a massage on the beach accompanied by a cooling sea breeze.
Please note that whilst the resort is oceanfront, for a full beach, you will need to journey up the coast. You can paddle through the warm water to a sand spit during low tide, but there are not the range of watersports facilities that you would find at some other beach resorts. Kayaks can be taken out when the sea is calm and the area is known for kite-surfing.

Dining

The day begins with a wide-ranging buffet breakfast at Issara Cafe, set by the lovely pool, with Alex the Parrot to greet you when you arrive! The poolside restaurant is also available.
For lunch, enjoy the cool breeze at Sai Thong, the oceanfront barbecue and seafood venue (also open in the evenings), or if you don’t’ wish to wander far from the pool, a light meal and drinks can be ordered from Loy Nam and served under a thatched umbrella by your lounger.

After the suns sets, Rim Nam, also poolside, is the venue for enjoying authentic Thai cuisine during the evening whilst if you hanker after some Mediterranean food, Baan Thalia offers fine dining Italian style. For a night camp, head to Sala Siam, often the host of the evening entertainment. You might like to try the local wine too, Monsoon Valley!
Those staying in a Suite, also have access to the Lagoon Bar, offering complimentary soft drinks all day, and alcoholic drinks from 5 – 6 pm with canapes.
Finally, if you are keen to impress family and friends back home, why not try Spice Spoons, the resorts own Thai cooking school?

Rooms

The resort is in the traditional Thai village style, with rooms showcasing polished wooden floors set in a series of low-rise buildings interspersed around the tropical gardens. We recommend the Sea View Rooms and Suites if the spend range allows, so that you can enjoy the cooling sea breeze from your cushion-strewn balcony as well as delightful views and the benefits to those staying in a Suite is considerable, so we recommend enquiring with regards to the upgrade cost.

Premium Garden View or Sea View rooms are 32 square metres in size and feature a private balcony or terrace and terrazzo bathtub whilst the Deluxe Garden View rooms offer a walk-in rain shower only.

All suites benefit from the Lagoon Club Privileges (please see activities and dining tabs). The Junior Lagoon View Suite offers more space at 40 square metres and views over the tropical gardens whilst the Anantara Garden View and Sea View Suites are a very specious 64 square metres with a large living area and extra-length balcony.

Family

Children of all ages are welcome at the resort which also features Ban Pla Noi kids club, and paddling pool for little ones by the main pool. The trampoline, boules, badminton and table tennis help to keep everyone occupied in the day, when not enjoying the fantastic family pool.

One child under 12 can share all room types, with a small charge available for an extra rollaway bed and breakfast. From age 12, a slightly higher extra fee applies. All the Suite types feature a large day bed, so these room types can accommodate 2 children under 12 sharing or 1 child from age 12. Further, connecting rooms are available in all categories upon request, whilst the Suites connect via the long balcony to a Premier Room. For a larger family gathering, perhaps to celebrate a special occasion, the Three Bedroom Sea View Owner’s Apartment is sure to wow!

A children’s menu is also available in most of the restaurants ensuring dining with younger ones is easy.
Close access to the facilities of the town including a number of markets offers shopping opportunities for teens whether seeking locally made momentos or ‘designer’ labels!

Sustainability

Behind the scenes and at the forefront, Anantara works tirelessly to preserve the amazing destinations that we call home.

Hand in hand with guests, the team contributes to a number of social and environmental projects in each country where they operate. They actively support communities through grassroots involvement as well as matching dollar-for-dollar guest donations to organisations providing vital services, such as children’s surgeries and wildlife protection.

Location

A 3 hour journey South from Bangkok (3.5 hours from the Airport) brings you to Hua Hin. The resort is set a short 10 minute road journey from the centre of town / main beaches, but the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service for those staying in suites (or taxis cost a few pounds). Alternatively hire a bike and explore by pedal-power.
