Sharp lines and conceptual furnishings have been eschewed for a more romantic, old-world aesthetic at the five-star Wora Bura Hua Hin Resort & Spa. Though this luxury retreat was opened in 2005, it’s reminiscent of 19th century Thailand, with intricate architectural details and a peaceful garden setting.
There are 77 rooms, a choice of restaurants and bars, and a quiet spa where Thai and Western techniques are fused. Relax by the freeform pool or under the shade of a frangipani tree with a good read in hand. Should you wish to get sand between your toes, you won't have to wander far; the powder-soft Hua Hin Beach is visible from the resort and a mere few minutes’ walk away.
