A two-hour drive from bustling Bangkok, the secluded Veranda Resort & Spa hugs Hua Hin’s verdant coastline. Set on palm-fringed grounds, this lush tropical enclave of 118 minimalist rooms and villas overlooks the crystal waters of the Gulf of Thailand. The rooms are spacious and modern, with floor-to-ceiling French doors, and feature buttery marble, locally made furniture and Thai artwork. Jacuzzi Sea View Rooms have hot tubs on sea-facing balconies, while Pool Villas have private pools and outdoor bathtubs. Choose between two restaurants: the Dining Room, a casual all-day bistro that serves Western and Thai cuisine from an open kitchen, and the I Sea restaurant and bar, a hip eatery dotted with sculptures. Relax in a gazebo with a poolside cocktail at Pool Bar, and watch the stars from the comfort of the rooftop “moon deck.” Or unwind with a traditional Thai massage at the spa. Families are welcome at the Veranda: A kids club is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the friendly staff can help organize activities including surfing and horseback riding.
In the Area
Just 120 miles from Bangkok, Hua Hin has a powdery beach, upscale restaurants and excellent golfing options that make it a top weekend escape. It’s the location of the king of Thailand’s summer palace, Klai Kang Won (“far from worries”). Visit the lively night market, where brightly colored stalls sell all manner of exotic seafood; try the patpong gareeboo (crab curry) and hoy tort (fried mussel omelet). Later on, head down the coast to Khao Takiab, where you can hike to a hilltop Buddhist temple and feast your eyes on spectacular ocean views.
How to Get There
I stayed in a deluxe room walkable to the pool. Nice valet staff and receptionist. Nice view of the beach and the colorful light in the pool at night. The walkway to the room made me feel relaxing as walking pass the bunch of the trees. Digital door key system with 2 access cards. Big bath tub separated to the toilet and shower room. Overall was super impressive. A little far from Hua Hin city and market, suitable for family with own car. I'll visit again soon!!!
Stayed here in January 2019 with my adult daughter in a jacuzzi balcony room. I clearly did not do my homework because I didn't realize that the room was across the road from the rest of the hotel. It is a tiny quiet road and not a problem, but it's not the same thing as just walking across a garden back to your room. The jacuzzi was a nice addition and we used it every day, but the jets were very gentle. Also the balcony was covered so you could not lie on it and get any sun. I looked at the beach front balcony rooms and they have a table and a sort of day bed on them -- not a comfortable place to lie in the sun either but probably nice for an evening cocktail. There were some lovely design features (staircase to the stars, fountains in the pool, sloped access to the water in the children's area, etc.) The ladies toilet poolside is an experience -- while private, one wall is open to the elements; just you and the koi fish in the pond while you are sitting,,,,,!!!! My daughter is Vegan and there was very little she could eat there. The main dining room (Which says "All day dining" was closed in the evening which was a disappointment. Importantly, the staff were lovely. All of them were truly lovely. We live in Thailand and we are accustomed to the high level of service that hotels here deliver and the Verandah's team were excellent and genuine. Having said that, we reported a problem with the balcony door not locking and a closet light not turning off and while they came immediately to address the issues, within 24 hours both were broken again. Lovely treatment at the spa and 50% off happy hour pricing. All in all we had a very pleasant stay and would consider coming back.
Hi i did resntly at veranda resort hua hin. 3 nights whit my girlfriend and i did book it BECOs it was a Sofitel manegment. But i dont know but i think the standard was not 5 star and the service was NOT 5 star.
I came to stay at the resort during the new year 2019. The staff reminded my family members not to wear pajamas to eat for breakfast despite being a seaside resort. Shouldn't be strict about clothing But the terrible thing is that when I came down to eat breakfast I found flies in the sausage tray.
We had been here three years ago and were very satisfied. This time we had three rooms with family joining us. The resort is till the same, nicely laid out, lovely pool and quiet (except from the appalling Christmas music at breakfast even well after Xmas). Individually the staff is very friendly and helpful but as a team I felt they miss direction and it also seemed the place is understaffed. At breakfast you have to wait a long time for a cup of coffee from one clearly overworked staff member (nobody to bring it as is so common elsewhere). The tables are not cleared for a long time. At the pool there is no attendance at one side for towels and drinks. At the bar (awful disco music by the way) it took almost ten minutes to get a beer. The fruit brought to the room had a bite taken out of it that was unnoticed. So many things that add together to an impression that there is no clear direction for the staff.
