Royal Hua Hin
Modern hotels of the world's leading chains, historical mansions and luxury villas in Thailand, surrounded by sandy beaches of the Gulf of Thailand on one hand, and on the other, the hills at the foot of which there are vineyards, pineapple plantations and golf courses - this is Hua Hin, the first resort of this versatile country.
As a resort Hu Hin has a century long history of elite rest in the Kingdom, the beginning of which is incorporated in the twenties of the last century. Then, from durable robust species of teak the Residence of the King of Siam was built between the modern beaches of Cha-Am and Hua Hin. Here, looking at the sea, the King created his literary works of art while on holiday during hot season.
That was the time when the railway line to Malaysia was opened. Since then the very first train station has become the hallmark of the first-class resort in Thailand. And the first luxury hotel of the resort opened its doors under the name of Railway Hotel. The quiet life of Hua Hin starts here, along the sandy beach of the same name, at the first hotel of the royal resort. To this day, a holiday in its rooms or villas, sinking in tropical greenery of gardens, plunges into a deep charm of the jazz era and relaxing atmosphere.
Today, the territories of the hotels having proud world-famous names of Hilton, Marriott and InterContinental and villas and apartments not inferior to them in the quality of service are spread along the five-kilometer beach of Hua Hin. And the neighboring streets are filled with numerous massage parlors, souvenir shops and restaurants serving fresh seafood.
Fishing village of Hua Hin has received new life with the development of infrastructure and the received hospitality experience. The experience of serving distinguished guests, staying in the summer royal residence, in luxury hotels, private homes, villas and bungalows near the sea, was absorbed by the local population with the mother's milk as a special mentality. And an "Oscar" obtained by Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa in hotel business in 2015 became yet another proof of the exceptional hospitality of the resort. A small hotel with luxury villas, where each villa has access to Pak Nam Pran beach in the bay of the same name, has won this prestigious award on the world stage among luxury hotels in the nomination "Best Service Luxury Villas".
More distant from the town beaches of Sai Noi, Ao Manao and Pranburi are embraced by the warmth hospitality of Hua Hin. Along these beaches, adjacent to golf courses, a wildlife sanctuary and mangrove forests, there are pretentious villas of Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas, Evason Hua Hin and villas in the Moroccan style.
Meditation on the beach, touch to the culinary traditions of Thailand, horse riding and Spa treatments - this is not an exhaustive list of activities while relaxing in Hua Hin villas.
Thailand's first beach resort keeps pace with the times, new entertainment parks, kite surfing schools, beach clubs, restaurants, markets and shops appear on the map of the city and they are primarily focused on the elite.
And, despite the fact that the golden beaches with singing sands are just three hours away from the biggest city in the country - Bangkok, the leading trend of the resort remains the same - a vacation "away from the bustle".
