The resort’s top-end accommodation includes eleven deluxe ocean-view suites and six executive suites. Three beachfront villas with private plunge pools and one presidential suite provide the highest level of luxury. The presidential suite can also cater as a distinctive and private wedding chapel. All rooms have individual master bedrooms, spacious living and dining areas in addition to large bathrooms with a separate shower and bathtub. Guests can also enjoy entertainment options such as 37-inch to 50-inch Samsung LCD TVs, Bose DVD players and iPod docking stations. Personalised butler service and premium L’Occitane brand amenities in every bathroom ensure the utmost in comfort and convenience. Room rates start from $154.00* USD per night.
Principle design team Space Architect along with construction firm Power Line, swimming pool and landscape designer Belt Collins, lighting designer Lifestyle and interior designer PIA together conceived this premier destination in Hua Hin. From a striking infinity-edge swimming pool to elegant fine-dining outlets all featuring stunning ocean views, guests enjoy high quality accommodation and service in a delightfully low-key setting. Guests can be pampered at Spa InterContinental, work out at the Techno Gym, or dine at the signature oceanfront Beach Grill.
InterContinental Hua Hin Resort’s ‘In the Know’ programmes focus on the area’s attractions – from the town’s historic railway station and its vividly colored wooden features, to landmark Khao Thakiab (‘Chopstick Hill’) on the Gulf of Thailand coastline, where a Buddhist temple sits majestically on the hilltop. When King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) built his summer palace along this stretch of white sandy beach, he named it ‘Wang Klai Kang Won’, Thai for ‘Far from Worries’. Golfers can choose from the area’s spectacular courses, including The Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, Thailand’s first championship course, the challenging Palm Hills Golf Resort and Country Club in nearby Cha-Am, or the Springfield Royal Country Club designed by Jack Nicklaus, which offers serene valley views.
The resort's signature kids’ club, Planet Trekkers, is designed to entertain and inspire guests aged three to 12 years old. Designed as a mini-resort for younger guests, the club allows parents to provide their children with ‘In the Know’ experiences in a safe environment. Children can have fun immersing themselves in their surroundings while parents enjoy guilt-free time alone.
InterContinental Hua Hin Resort endeavors to not only enhance the area’s architectural distinction and complement its beautiful natural scenery, but also continue the tradition of carefree relaxation and respite. Just as the kingdom’s royals have found in Hua Hin a sovereign retreat by the sea, guests of InterContinental Hua Hin Resort enjoy a destination where all that makes the charming seaside community so well-loved has been preserved and restored to full splendor.
