The Timeless Charms of One of Asia’s Heritage Hotels

Nestled on 13 hectares of lush private gardens, the iconic Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin has long been considered one of Asia’s best heritage hotels.

Originally named “The Railway Hotel”, this five-star property first opened its doors to guests in 1923. Catering to the Thai aristocracy and distinguished foreign visitors, the hotel provided an idyllic stop for travellers heading south from Bangkok on a new railway line connecting Siam (modern day Thailand) to Malaya (modern day Malaysia).

Hua Hin’s royal connection dates as far back as 1922 in the reign of King Rama VI. Situated in the centre of Hua Hin, the resort is one of the finest places to stay in town.

Hua Hin is also home to the elegant Klai Kangwon Palace, a place where the Thai royal family often travel to spend their summer months. “Klai Kangwon” translates to “far from worries” and that might just be your experience when visiting Hua Hin. The palace can even be visited at certain times during the year.

Located a short two-and-a-half-hour drive from Bangkok, Hua Hin is the perfect destination for families looking to escape the heat of Bangkok.
