Anantara Resorts & Spas Hua Hin

The vision for the Anantara Resort Hua Hin was to create uniquely Thai resort and spa with the timeless appeal of classic Thai architecture and landscaping.
ADDRESS
43/1 Phetkasem Beach Rd., Hua Hin, Thailand

The Overview

A three-metre high terracotta wall cleverly cocoons the resort from the hustle and bustle of town. As you make your way along the landscaped driveway, a sense of clam descends. The sense of arrival is heightened as you admire a decorative wall adorned with a parade of elephants. A cool breeze drifting in from the beach floats through the open-air lobby with the strains of a melodic Thai tune lingering. Polished timber floors and Thai-style salas (pavilions) heighten the ambience of an intimate tropical hideaway.

Echoing Hua Hin's mainly provincial, primary low-rise landscape, the Anantara comprises a collection of 21 two-storey structures interspersed with meandering gecko-stamped pathways, lotus blossom and lily-filled lagoon ponds, and sculptures nestled into the shrubbery.

All garden and sea-view rooms and suites feature private balconies or terraces. The resort's enclave of spacious lagoon suites feature Anantara's signature deep terrazzo bathtubs "made for two" set in open-plan bathrooms that extend into the expansive bedrooms individually decorated with Thai artifacts and, beyond this, to balconies featuring built-in sofas and apace enough to dine.
