Hua Hin is a seaside resort on the Gulf of Thailand. It is about 3 hours by car south of Bangkok. It became a popular beach retreat for wealthy Thais after King Rama VI and King Rama VII built summer residences here in the 1920s. We went in December and the temperature was very comfortable with a constant breeze from the sea. I can see why people come here to escape the stifling heat of Bangkok.
We stayed at The Barai Suites of the Hua Hin Hyatt Regency. This is in a quieter part of the resort close to the spa with its own pool and facilities. Our three-bedroom presidential villa is beachfront with a private plunge pool, separate living, dining, and kitchen areas. It is the perfect setup for family holidays where the children can use the larger pools in the main hotel as well as Camp Hyatt.
