Grand colonial hotel in idyllic beachfront location

Ideally located in the centre of Hua Hin, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin spans over 16 hectares of tropical landscapes and enjoys direct access to seven kilometres of white sand beach. Opened in 1923 as a railway hotel for the wealthy, here you can savour the luxury and refinement of eras gone by in a beautiful Thai garden setting.
 
One of the classic hotels of Asia, this colonial style resort has been restored to its original colonial grace with a charming, old world atmosphere. Each guestroom features gracious décor and a private furnished balcony overlooking the landscaped gardens.

Fine French cuisine and fresh seafood dishes can be sampled at the beachfront Palm Seafood Pavilion whilst Thai can be enjoyed at Suan Bua and Japanese at the Hagi Restaurant.
 
Nearby, seven of Thailand's top golf courses compliment the hotel's extensive onsite recreation whilst Hua Hin’s shops, leisure attractions and the Hua Hin railway station are also all within easy walking distance.

Relaxing stay at Centara Grand Hotel

London, United Kingdom

Just spent 4 nights at the Centara Grand Hotel and Spa Hua Hin. Elegant and charming hotel. All staff excellent . Lovely welcome at reception . Spent some time at Coast beach side restaurant both during the day and evenings. Great location over looking one of their 3 pools and the beautiful beach . Special mention to Noo who we met on first day. Great service. Hotel has that charming old colonial style but nothing faded about it. Lovely tea/coffee lounge . Do try the coconut vanilla coffee. Cannot remember the name. Location perfect . Centre of town. Do go to Cicada Market on weekends only. Evening market with lovely craft stalls much better quality than found in Hua Hin . Great food and live music . Fantastic band played there 15th July. Really entertaining female front singer of a band. Sings 20% Talks 80% was her slogan but should be sings 20% entertains 80%. Great night out. Tuk tuk just 150 Thai bhat each way and easy to get to in under 10 minutes.
