Experience an unexpected intersection of tradition, culture, and modernity at the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa. Situated a short two-and-a-half-hour drive south of downtown Bangkok, the resort in nestled 15 minutes from the seaside town of Cha Am and 20 minutes from the royally patronized town of Hua Hin.
Along with providing an engaging base from which to explore these and countless other seaside villages, the resort is also just a short drive from two royal summer palaces, where members of the Thai Royal Family have spent their summers for nearly 100 years. The region’s vibrant heritage and fishing roots are also visible in its numerous temples and the iconic Hua Hin Railway Station. The country’s oldest railway station, it is constructed in classic Thai architectural style, which contrasts and complements the nearby Mrigadayavan Palace (the Palace of Love and Hope), which is styled in a Thai-Victorian fashion.
Recently, the area has also emerged as one of the premier golfing destinations in Asia, with eight world-class courses—ranging from the Royal Hua Hin to Banyan Golf Club to the Max Wexler-designed Palm Hills Golf Club—less than 30 minutes away. Meet friends for a round at Black Mountain Water Park, Cha Am ATV Park, or Hua Hin Hills Vineyard.
Kite surfing, paramotoring, beachside horseback rides, bike rides, and more provide additional ways to discover the region’s breathtaking natural sites. Among these unforgettable destinations is Keng Krachan National Park. Located to the west, the park boasts peaks, caves, waterfalls, mangrove swamps, and mountain vistas. To the south, tranquil white sand beaches reside alongside a rocky headland locally known as Khao Takiab (Chopstick Mountain), which presents cliffside Buddhist temples.
