Overview

Seaside sleep on the Thai Riviera with private terraces, two pools and gourmet Pan-Asian fare

The Lowdown

Designer Duangrit Bunnag makes a statement at the 79-room Hotel de la Paix, where traditional Thai stylings take a backseat to chic austerity. The main accommodations are set within two-story, wood-paneled bunkers that frame a central lap pool and unfold toward the sea. Inside, sleek furnishings and plush linens soften the sharp minimalism of the hotel’s exterior. Two restaurants offer a selection of Pan-Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, and the sexy Red Bar serves as the backdrop for everything from casual happy hours to A-list parties. The Spa Indochine is a sinful alternative to an afternoon on the private beach, while two pools give kids and adults separate spaces to splash and play.

In the Area

Just 125 miles south of Bangkok, Cha Am offers easy access to the beach resort spoils of Hua Hin. Take advantage of the hotel’s free shuttle into town for artisan shopping and a taste of local flavor. Your concierge can also arrange a cultural tour of the region, including a stop at Maruekhathaiyawan Palace, a 1920s-era relic commissioned under King Rama VI. Visit Kaeng Krachan, Thailand’s largest national park, to check out local flora and fauna along a scenic self-guided hike. You may even spot a herd of elephants running wild. The real draw in Cha Am is, of course, the stunning shoreline, so save time for sunbathing and snorkeling at the hotel’s private beach.

Kids friendly hotel. Suit for family with kids
Reviewed 2 days ago

The hotel is nice and suit for family who travel with kids. Not only that they have stunting swimming pool, the kids club is also another place when all the kids are looking for.

Apart from this, kids are also enjoy gaming at Hi-so bar where friend and family are gathering for gaming and snack.

The selection of food is very nice and variety. We would highly recommend for travelers with kids to really consider staying at this hotel.

🌈Happy time.

For this time, my destination is So Sofital-Cha Am in Phetchaburi province. We once subscribed to be the Accor membership,and I think that it is a good decision to do so.Staff impressed us at first by their warm welcome and we chose a family room.To check in at So Sofital at its front desk was my first impression,considered to be the first impression we were offered.The staff provided such a good service,of course, recommended all parts of the hotel service. The food waz so delicious ,and its atmosphere was so good too.The room appeared comfortable and wide. The hotel facilitated 3 swimming pools and Kids Club for children too.The location is so nice; near the beach,suited for all of us to relax.That's why I was so impressive. I am looking forward to come here again next time.

Luxury escape
Reviewed 5 days ago

This was part of a luxury escape deal and was for 6 nights. We were shown to our room, straight away the noise from the 2 surrounding rooms amplified. Its concrete and was loud. There was no balcony and it really did not feel luxurious at all. We asked what could be done and were offered a pool villa later that evening at an extra cost. Let me tell you it was worth it! I don't think we would have enjoyed it nearly anywhere as much as we did if we did not have villa 11. It was superb apart from the 2nd last day when the airconditioner leaked and caused problems. The bed was probably the biggest and most comfortable I've slept in. It was massive. All of the furnishings are very good quality at the resort and it is decorated in a beachy theme. The pool and outdoor area of the villa was fabulous and well utilised. There are 3 pools for those who dont have a pool villa. One is a children free pool but that seemed to be ignored by some. Breakfast was ample at the white oven as was the evening meal. I would have to say the coconut cake and mango sorbet were superb. Staff tried very hard to please and were very courteous. Just a tad of a language barrier with english. Still we all got by. Unfortunately the beach isn't like others I've been to...but it was lovely to look at the sea early morning and mid afternoon. Weather was hot so the activities were not used much. We did mini golf and the 18 hole course was superb. Kids club looked awesome to keep little ones occupied and there were bikes and a great playground that could have been used more if it wasnt so hot. The gym was small but adequate and we had a massage each that was heaven. There is a shuttle that goes into the nearby town for 50 baht each way. We did it on Wednesday night but again it was stifling and the usual style street market and just not my cup of tea. Didn't bother going into Hua Hin because it was just so fine staying in at the resort. Would stay again but only in a pool villa.

Happy Birthday Retreat
Reviewed 7 days ago

I had a great vacation thanks to So SOFITEL Huahin. The hotel is really beautiful, chic and modern.

Arrival
I was greeted by Khun Au. He was full of energy and smile. I got a little problem while checking in seems like the hotel didn’t get my reply of pre Arrival form I sent via email 3 days ago. Anyway Khun Au solve the problem very promptly. And I was very pleased. He also offered me a hotel tour which is a nice touch.

Room
I got ‘So Nature’ room as I requested. The room was very nice, spacious and chic with touch of humor here and there. The ceiling was very high, which I love. The bath room was huge equipped with separated toilet,bath tub and rain shower which combined with ceiling this high make it very dramatic.

Spa
I’ve visit ‘SoSpa’ and tried 2 hr. for Couple package and it was a bliss.
Khun Mol, my therapist. She’s very kind very polite and professional.
The product they use are very high quality.

My suggestion
- The hotel stated itself So Sofitel ‘Huahin’ is quite misleading. Actually hotel located in ChaAm area, Huahin center is about 35 km away.
- This is kinda big deal for me personally. I really wish the hotel will install bidet sprayer by the toilet Thai style or Japanese style will do. It’s for hygiene sake and comfortable for customers

However this is a great hotel for me and I enjoyed my time spent here
Will consider be back in the future for sure.
PS. Thank you for my birthday cake.

VERY nice hotel, but far from city
Reviewed 1 week ago

PRO:
1. Excellent view - the hotel has a private beach which has a stunning view.
2. Super professional staff - especially Crystal in Kids Room, she was helpful and kind enough to help us arrange shuttle bus service.
3. Beautiful hotel - the room and common area are spotlessly clean

CON:
1. Far from city - it costs 100 thb each person for one-way shuttle. If you miss the last shuttle bus to go back to the hotel, it would cost 600-700 thb to go by taxi from the city centre to the hotel
