Hua Hin’s seaside location means you can really have it all: A bustling little town with a plethora of restaurants, shops, interesting attractions, authentic local experiences and some night-time pursuits (minus the raunchy nightlife scene of Pattaya and Phuket’s Patong area), flanked by a long, sandy beach and azure ocean. That’s why you will find the highest concentration of hotels in and directly around Hua Hin itself. It’s easy to get around, either on foot or by hop-on taxi (‘songthaew’). Hotels can be found along the beachfront or in the town, the latter which is also within easy reach of the fun in the sun. Khao Takiab is a little further away, yet easily accessible to the town.
You don’t have to give up beach access or sea views to get a location that’s convenient to the sights and sounds of central Hua Hin. In fact, you can be right in the middle of absolutely everything. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at a five-star resort, then venture out for a stroll on the beach, a bit of shopping, and a soothing foot massage – all before lunch. At night, explore the many local eating experiences, or how about a bit of shopping at Hua Hin’s market?
There’s another reason the waterfront lane is generally peaceful: the Evason Hua Hin Resort is quite remote. Apart from the area’s resorts and the occasional restaurant, massage hut or bar-on-wheels, there’s very little nearby. And that’s what Evason is all about – escape, serenity, and quietude.
