hua hin

hua hin thailand

Hua Hin was established in the early 1920s by King Rama VII as an ideal getaway from the sultry metropolis of Bangkok. The tranquil fishing village was turned into a Royal resort and consequently became popular among Siam's nobility.

  • Chiva Som - world class luxury spa and wellness resort

While the beaches of Phuket and Samui were discovered only recently, Hua Hin has  been a favourite Thai resort for over 70 years.  As a result, it has a delightfully authentic feel and only a 2.5 hour drive south from Bangkok.  Our favourite destination here is the luxury spa resort of Chiva Som.

It was, and still is, the resort's royal endorsement which has given Hua Hin a special character of its very own.

The pick of the luxury spa resorts in Hua Hin is the justifiably famous Chiva Som which has an enormous selection of healthy programmes to choose from.

Weather and when to go

Hua Hin has a tropical climate with high humidity and occasional rain and can be enjoyed all year round. Generally, the best time of the year to visit is in the cool season from November to February, but for those who like it hot, visit from March to May (temperature gets up into the higher 30s). The rainy season (although it doesn't rain every day) is from June to October with September being the rainiest of all. For those who don't appreciate the rain, it's good to know that the rain in Thailand usually comes in short sharp bursts.
