Where to stay in Hua Hin?

Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s most popular seaside resorts among overseas visitors as well as Thais. Located on the sunrise (west) side of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin lies some 200 km. or a three-hour drive southwest of Bangkok and is renowned as Thailand’s most traditional beach resort. It was here, King Rama VII built a summer palace, thus creating a vogue among high society for Hua Hin as a favourite retreat from Bangkok’s summer heat. Today the Royal Family continues to reside at Hua Hin for part of the year. Hua Hin is noted for its traditional fishing port with many seafood restaurants, and a splendid sandy beach which starts from a rocky headland next to the port and curves gently for some 3 km. to its southern point where Buddhist temples surmount hilltops. Hua Hin is a well-established beach destination, with full facilities. But in contrast to Pattaya, the long-established resort on the opposite shore of the Gulf, Hua Hin provides a quiet, relaxed retreat amid surroundings which preserve a typical Thai ambience. Hua Hin is thus well suited for families or those who wish simply to escape the city bustle.

The answer to where to stay in Hua Hin question is easy: near Hua Hin Beach. This 3 km beach with its fine white sand extends from one side of Hua Hin to another. There are many resort hotels and many water sports opportunities here and beach is the main reason people come all the way to Hua Hin.

Cape Nidhra, Hua Hin (5-Star, 800 meters from the beach), Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa (4-Star, only 200 meters from the beach), Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin (5-Star, only 300 meters from the beach), Baan Laksasubha (4-Star, only 300 meters from the beach) and Citin Loft Hua Hin (3-Star 700 meters from the beach) are some of the best hotels in Hua Hin to stay.

Hua Hin Beach, Thailand. Hua Hin is a popular beach resort destination from Bangkok.
One of the good things about Hua Hin is that it has some nightlife but does not have the seedy and naughty night life of Pattaya and Phuket. With its long, sandy beach, restaurants, shops, quite interesting attractions and azure waters, it offers everything you can expect from a tropical, seaside holiday.

Khao Takiab
Hua Hin is popular and relatively crowded. If you want to be a little outside Hua Hin's tourist traps but still want to be a short ride away from it, Khao Takiab is a place to look at. This fishing village (Khao Takiab means "Chopstick Hill") offers a nice beach, clean waters, plenty of beachside dining and accomodation.

Pran Buri
30 km to the south of Hua Hin, Pran Buri offers sun, sand, pristine beaches, the clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand and a charming local village. You can find luxury resorts as well as budget accommodation here and hotels are quite apart so there is a sense of privacy and quiteness.

Cha-Am is technically not in Hua Hin. It is a neighbouring district and a famous beach resort town in Thailand. Its long and peaceful coastline has many hotels and resorts with direct access to beach and  unlike many Thailand beaches, the beaches of Cha-Am are less crowded with people and activities.
