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 have seamlessly blended the historic with the contemporary.
The resort has an enviable position between the beautiful Hua Hin Beach and the town’s dynamic streets, and guests also have easy access to at least six golf courses. You’ll never be short of things to do here; practise on putting greens, put your balance to the test in t’ai chi classes and enjoy a treatment at the SPA Cenvaree. There are also four swimming pools, each with its own children’s pool.
Al fresco dinners by the beach or in the stunning gardens are the norm. Coast Beach Club & Bistro is the place to be for freshly caught seafood, tasty pizzas and grilled meat in a laid-back beach setting, and the all-day dining restaurant Railway Restaurant is inspired by Hua Hin’s original railway station. Head to Suan Bua for home-style Thai or Hagi for superb Japanese. Meanwhile, The Museum transports you back in time with its an acclaimed afternoon tea.
The colonial style that has inspired the public spaces is continued into the rooms, suites and villas. Deluxe and Premium Deluxe Rooms have views of the gardens or swimming pools while guests in the Premium Deluxe Club rooms and suites enjoy access to the exclusive Club Lounge.
