Wish you were at the beach right now? The InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has plush seaside digs within easy driving distance of Bangkok.
Hua Hin has long been one of Thailand’s most popular seaside getaways—and with good reason. This laid-back beach town a few hour’s drive from Bangkok boasts honey-colored sands, fantastic seafood eateries, and plenty of charm. Situated on a private stretch of sand, the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort offers easy access to the area’s natural beauty without the crowds, plus a whole lot more.
The stylish resort elegantly combines elements of Eastern and Western architectural styles in a series of low-rise buildings along the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Accommodations include the 119 spacious rooms and suites in the Beach Wing, the 40 rooms and suites along with the pool at the BluPort Wing, and an absolutely stunning two-story Thai-Victorian mansion. Known as La Residence Hua Hin, this exclusive abode is ideal for families or guests seeking the ultimate in pampering and privacy.
Tiny travelers will love the Planet Trekkers Kids’ Club, which caters to children ages four to 12 with all sorts of fun activities. While the little ones are occupied, parents can enjoy a rejuvenating treatment at the Spa InterContinental or simply kick back with a cocktail on the beach.
While Hua Hin offers all sorts of stellar dining options, the resort has so many tempting on-site eateries that you may never want to leave. Guests can indulge in a decadent Sunday brunch with views of the sea at Azure Restaurant and Bar, which also serves craft cocktails designed by master mixologist Joseph Boroski. Pirom serves authentic Thai cuisine, with an emphasis on Hua Hin’s seafood, all day long, and CoCco Bar is just right for a beachside cocktail and light bites.
For a truly superlative dining experience, Jaras offers destination dining at its finest. It’s contemporary Thai fine-dining, small plates with bold, recognizable flavors, with a heavy focus on hyper-local ingredients. Start your dinner with a refreshing aperitif and canapes, then indulge in a series of sophisticated courses that spotlight exceptional local produce and seafood—even the caviar is local. For the full experience, be sure to book the nine-course tasting menu.
And for when the gentle lapping of the ocean waves isn’t enough to easy you into a state of zen, you’ll want to visit CHEVALA, the hotel’s new wellness hub. This holistic healing facility combines advanced medical technologies with 5-star accommodation. From a comprehensive Long Covid Recovery Program to customizable anti-aging beauty treatments like IV Weber laser therapy, the spa, which is overseen by medical professionals, is a destination in its own right.
Whether you’re visiting Thailand for the first time or a Bangkok local looking for a break from city life, the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has plenty of ways to relax and recharge.
