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
After our arrival from Bangkok we were welcomed very friendly in a relaxed environment. After the first cooling down in the pool we were already in holiday mode. Clean and well-kept hotel complex with a very nice pool complex. Ideal to relax for a few days. Especially in the low season it was pleasantly quiet.
The service was obliging and always very friendly. Especially Ms. Chanya and Ms. Rattikarn were very helpful.
The breakfast buffet was very varied also with egg cook and delicious coffee specialities. The I Sea Restaurant enchants with a beautiful scenery with sea and pool. There is very tasty Thai and International food.
All in all we had a super relaxing stay.
I applied 2 hours of thai massage spa at Veranda Hotel Hua Hin. The massager named PONG (ผ่อง) just gave me a full session of drifting relaxation of body & mind. Loosening all my tension from life & work amazingly.
We like the resort.. big trees, nice pool, good service and kind staffs (especially K Phong, a therapist at spa was very skillful and friendly). I guess thats why we keep on going back. Although during our 3rd and 4th visits, there were wedding ceremonies that came with incredibly loud speakers. The noise was on the beach each time for days and nights (sometimes more than 1 wedding during our staying period). However, after we complained about the noise, we were upgraded to the better room, but worse view (buildings, car parks instead of the beach and pool).
Somehow, we did book this hotel again for this long holiday from 31 May to 3 June because I hold the le club accor membership, so, we book the cheapest room and intended to use our 2 upgrade vouchers to upgrade our room. When we arrived, we were informed that there was no chance of upgrading because all the rooms were fully booked, so, we stayed in the cheapest room which wasn't too bad until I realized that the shower room and toilet were cramply combined in one very small unit. There's no way you could take a shower without wetting the whole toilet seat and all the toilet area let it be a bin, tissue papers. I started to think that it would be much more comfortable for us just to stay at home rather than coming here for a holiday. I asked a front desk to move us again to the better room, at least to any rooms that has seperate dry and wet areas in the bathroom. They then moved us to another room with better design bathroom. We were almost happy until the early morning after when I could smell strong cigarette smoke everywhere in the room. It turned out that the hotel put us in the smoking wing even though I requested non smoking room during the booking/checking in process (I even signed a form saying that I acknowledged that smoking is prohibited. I talked again to K Pu who was actually very helpful, although she couldn't move us to any other room. That's when we decided to check out one day earlier that we should.
Very nice hotel and location. Good pool and beach area.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The staff member called Tao that looked after us was very professional and spoke good English.
The food is good and a great breakfast selection.
