A series of elegantly designed Thai-style pavilions surround 5.6 hectares (14 acres) of possibly the most exotic gardens you’ll see in Thailand, just north of Hua Hin. The open-air sala-style lobby tastefully showcases ornately carved teak wooden lanterns, warm wood floors, and oversized furniture with Thai cushions. The Lagoon is an area of teak pavilions surrounded by lily ponds; and from the hotel’s most luxurious rooms, you can hear chirping frogs and watch buzzing dragonflies from wide balconies. Other rooms cluster around a manicured courtyard. Superior rooms have a garden view, and deluxe rooms overlook the sand and sea. Lagoon rooms have large patios perfect for private barbecues. All rooms feature vibrant silks, hardwood floors, and high thread count sheets. Suites have enormous aggregate bathtubs that open to guest rooms by a sliding door. Fine dining includes an Italian restaurant, and the resort’s spa is large and luxurious.
