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
Stayed here for five days in December 2018 over new years with husband and 3 year old. Very family friendly resort, my daughter absolutely loved the sandpit Wendy house play area next to the swimming pool and we loved that we could sit there all day and leave her to it 5 feet distance from our eyes. We had a great suite in the ground floor directly in front of the pool and that was very helpful too. Suite were spacious ans had two bathrooms which was very handy Nice, clean beach and water, great fun pool with water slide. Although sunbeds did get booked out early it was new years so the resort was full, despite which it never felt overcrowded or uncomfortable. Food was good at the beach side cafe but felt it could have been more interesting in the restaurant. Good breakfast. I would rank room, general ambience and facilities 4 star rather than 5 star althought the pool was definitely 5 star. All in all a very good choice for small families with toddlers looking for a stress free low key holiday. Would stay again.
Nice well set out resort right near the beach with great rooms and great staff. Food is ok and the beachfront bar is good for chilling and having a chat. Pool is very good for kids as it has slides and shallow areas.
An impressive design hotel along the perfectly white sandy beach of Cha Am, Thailand Perfect accommodation and food, but most of all, all personnel was extremely friendly and helpfull during our stay.
A special thanks to the ladies of the reception who helped me in arranging a special birthday evening for my partner. They had the bedroom decorated with lovely flowers and elephants made of towels.
As for the birthday private dining on the beach very special efforts were made by both Pam and Maiy to accommodate us with an unforgettable dinner on our private beach. We had a royal experience, including a romantic beach mounted tent, decorated with lights and flower arrangements and candles. Not to speak about the delicious food served by our special host Pam, who pampered us the entire evening.
We will always remember this special night in amazing Thailand !
