Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin 

Heritage appeal by the sea

This restored 1920s gem oozes old-world charm on Hua Hin Beach.

The Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin is one of Hua Hin’s most well-regarded hotels, with an elegant colonial-style feel and a reputation for remarkable service. The hotel originally opened in the early 1920s when the new railway line to Malaysia transformed this sleepy fishing village into Thailand’s first beach resort, and the buildings seamlessly blend the historic with the contemporary.

Why we love Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin

  • The resort has an enviable position between the beautiful Hua Hin Beach and the town’s dynamic streets

  • It’s an architectural gem that blends original colonial buildings with immaculate modern recreations to impressive effect

  • You’ll never be short of things to do here, with everything from putting greens and t’ai chi classes to a superb spa to enjoy

  • The extensive gardens that stretch along the seafront are known for their topiary, including a 100-year-old elephant
