The 119-room InterContinental Hua Hin Resort features a curvilinear main building and a chain of waterfront-facing towers that maximize ubiquitous pool and ocean views. The property has a full-service spa, three dining options – including locally sourced Thai cuisine at Pirom and rustic Mediterranean fare at the casual trattoria, Felicita – and three bars and lounges. The most popular is the pool bar, tucked alongside the resort’s tiered infinity-edge pool that anchors the hotel and unfolds toward Hua Hin Beach. Arrive early to claim your sunbathing spot on one of the overwater salas.
In the Area
Five-mile Hua Hin Beach offers the standard snorkel, dive, and watersport activities, but with the highest concentration of golf courses in Thailand, even landlubbers have plenty of daytime diversions. Request a time via the concierge and tee off at nearby Black Mountain Golf Course, a top-rated par-72 with abundant water features and red native grass hazards. For other pursuits, you can sample local varietals with a tasting at Hua Hin Hills Vineyard or hike to the cascading, 11-tiered Pala-u Waterfall. And don’t miss Hua Hin Night Market, open daily, for a snack and souvenirs.
How to Get There
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and it was great. We took the Club Intercontinental option and it was worth every penny. First of all the club is probably the nicest club lounge I have seen. It had ocean views and a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and beach. The staff were amazing- top notch service. You felt very welcomed and they were attentive, courteous and polite. The club rooms are the best in the hotel as the wing is closet to the ocean. All in all highly recommended and excellent value for money.
We visited Hua Hin on a recommendation from my travel agent. It was our first time traveling international with our 6 month old baby and we were used to having quite “active” holidays in the past. We were looking for a city with plenty to do but a quality hotel where we could relax and we found that and more at the intercontinental.
Service is second to none. The staff were all so friendly and we were greeted with huge smiles and offers of help with our pram everywhere we went. As we crossed the busy road to the mall frequently with the pram there were traffic officers manning the lights to make sure the traffic gave way and we could cross safely. They were kicking off Christmas celebrations while we were there so there was music, Christmas trees and even a Santa marching band playing at the mall.
Breakfast was included with our room and there was a huge selection available. I developed a sweet tooth for the banana cake!
The pool is AMAZING and the gym had everything we could want with staff on hand to show you how to use the machines.
Our room was beautiful with a balcony and daybed- perfect for our first night where we needed to put our baby to bed so grabbed some takeaway and drinks and enjoyed the view from the balcony. They also included toiletries for our baby to use as well!
As we like to be active we took full advantage of the complimentary shuttle and waterpark entry and spent 3 days there. It wasn’t peak so we didn’t have to queue for rides and it was really easy getting around with the pram.
We absolutely can’t fault our stay. We haven’t stopped raving about it since we got back and will return in the future.
Our only possible suggestion would be a small ramp down the (2) steps to breakfast for the pram and perhaps some signage to the ramp access to the pool.
Thank you for making our first family holiday so memorable!
I booked a last minute stay here with my brother for a family visit this past weekend. For a whopping ~$350 a night in a "superior" room, I was somewhat disappointed with what I got. The hotel itself is split into two different buildings that are interconnected by a bridge flanking the street between them. Despite being part of the same hotel, there's a clear difference in quality between the two facilities. My room's part of the Blueport building, which has a direct connection to the namesake mall next to it. There's also a pool on the second or third floor of the building, but it wasn't as grand as I was expecting for a five-star hotel. The room itself was pretty nice and I loved the huge bathtub that's surrounded by the vanity mirrors on the walls and the sliding door. The beds were also heavenly to sleep in and I loved the chaise lounge chair and the private balcony that overlooks the pool. What I wasn't too crazy about were the holes in my curtain. I mean, if you're trying to sell your brand as being luxurious, shouldn't such details be tended to?
Upon stepping into the actual hotel on the opposite side, the difference in quality was quite noticeable. Everything from the lobby to the pools with private cabanas were more worthy of the hotel's distinction. Their breakfast, on the other hand, wasn't as great as I was expecting. There were a pretty good variety of food to choose from, but their overall quality was subpar. My favorites were only the two curries that were in the Asian side of the buffet. My egg benedict was overcooked, and I never got The Taste of Thailand order even after an hour of waiting (upon asking a waitress about when I'd receive my order, her simple reply was that it'd be out soon since all the orders were made on a first-come first-serve basis. I eventually gave up on waiting since I'd rather spend my time elsewhere). The pools and direct access to the beach were probably my favorite features of the hotel. It's too bad that we didn't get to make use of their comped entrances to the waterpark and beach club access. It's nice that there's a free shuttle service to different areas of the town, but sadly, we didn't make use of that either. If I were to stay there again, I'd definitely have to try them out for sure.
A quick visit and experience this hotel I admitted that it’s absolute retreat. Good location and ambience. I love the pool and spend quite much time on it. Food and drink were good. Staff is very helpful and accommodating. If you looking the place to relax and holiday retreat in Hua Hin is this I highly recommend. You will love it.
This is second time here for our anniversary trip. The room at the new zone was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was not that variety but it enough for the first meal of the day, and yes, not crowded. Can't wait for the third visit. Thank you for all staff for your superb service.
