A luxurious beach resort and only a few hours drive from Bangkok. Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin is the ultimate spot for a weekend family getaway. We instantly fell for the beautiful beachfront location, stunning historical building, and immaculately landscapes grounds. The original hotel dates back to the 1920’s and still holds nostalgic heritage charm to this day. Boasting four refreshing swimming pools, standard rooms and private pool villas, interactive kids club, and an elegant Club Lounge, you’ll find all you need and more for a relaxing stay. We loved our beach house style villa complete with sumptuous bedroom, decadent bath, private pool, and a separate lounge which effortlessly transformed into kids’ sleeping quarters. Days were spent horseback riding along the picturesque beach, relaxing beside the tranquil pools, indulging in family friendly treatments at the full service spa, and taking advantage of the fun schedule available at the engaging and spacious kids club. Evenings were delightfully adorned with cocktail hour in the inviting Club Lounge and casual beachfront dining at Coast Beach Club. We even treated ourselves to an intimate in villa dinner and absolutely loved being steps away from the serene sandy shores. Centara is also ideally located for exploring Hua Hin with plenty of local eats and market stalls right on your front step. We can’t think of a better choice for families and couples looking for a getaway with a trusted five star brand on one of Thailand’s most popular beaches.
